So after reading tons of people who get upset over changes made by this addon, thought id mention that just trying the 1.6 ic2/gregtech stuff now and I think its perfect. A friend on my server found some bronze and wanted to make a pickaxe and said it took him 17 bronze or something to make it. Iron chest plate takes more, etc. This is what we have been looking for, and the vanilla changes ... i dont get why people are so upset. 2 planks for one log.. makes sense. Before it was too easy to just burn planks as fuel, and there wasnt as much incentive to make charcoal. now there is, and you have an incentive to make a machine that gives you 4 planks per log.
Anyway after seeing posts on here with people complaining that maybe a compliment might be appreciated. If this addon disappears, i dont think id play modded minecraft anymore.
We also added some iguana tweaks stuff, hunger overhaul, etc. So far enjoying the game more than I have in months. Thanks for all the work done here, with IC2 exp and all the addons, really.
