How To Use

PcPartPicker is a wonderful site that allows people to easily put together a build and get aggregated (collected) data on parts pricing, however there are a few important features that are not explained. I hope to walk you through them here. Firstly we're at the index page, nothing particularly useful except for the 'VIEW YOUR System Build' button in the top left hand corner. This is how we start a new build.

Cristallum is a late game resource generation mod that doesnt require large portions of land to be destroyed (cough quarries cough).

Heavily inspired by Tiberium from the Command and Conquer universe, Cristallum is dangerous it leaches minerals out of the surrounding soil and will attempt to break down other minerals it comes in contact to. Organic contact is known to be deadly :)

TehNut has become the offical 1.7.10 maintainer for ANSSRPG

TehNut has taken up the task of maintaining the 1.7.10 version of ANSSRPG, so you can badger him instead of me for builds :)

Why I decided to stick with 1.8 for minecraft.


Some people had noticed that after working on ANSSRPG for over a year and five months (30/04/2014 was the creation date of the repository) that I had finally released it however with one quirk; it was released for 1.8 only and a few people have asked why/for a 1.7.10 version.

I want to make it clear that I only wish to maintain and work on one version myself (although I am open to someone else maintaining a 1.7.10 version) this was for a few reasons, the biggest being that I have become a professional software developer and modding is as much of a hobby as something of a passion (still being a full time student doesn't help) so I don't have as much time as before to work on it. There are other reasons, the most prominent being that a few mods that I have had my eye on for compatibility issues like Tinkers Construct have been undergoing major changes to the code base and I do not wish to work against it until it is stable again.

Lastly, the modding community stagnates around Minecraft versions and I loathe that. If I can push it along ever so slightly I am perfectly happy to do so (even at the cost of people’s perceptions and enjoyment).
