Technic Tuesday: Always Late

Soon

Soon.

Platform Changes

This week, we made a couple minor changes to the platform that will be important for new pack releases.  First, we re-added the ability to have teaser pages, which are always a big hit, and are once again hosting the old teaser pages for existing packs.  The second thing we did is a follow-up to a change we made a couple months ago.  In March, we removed some older packs from the list of default packs in the launcher.  However, those packs' pages still said "Included in the Technic Launcher"!  You could still search for these packs from the launcher, but it was frustrating if you were trying to install Tekkit Classic on a new launcher.  All official packs that are not included with the launcher now have a Platform API Link on their Platform page.

Additionally, this week we will be reinstating stats in the launcher.  The path to get us there has been a long journey from sct but we're just about ready to unveil that, so look forward to it!  

A Word About Hack Slash Mine

This week, we removed Hack Slash Mine as an official Technic pack and we wanted to drop a quick word about that.  We really like HSM and have been playing it for years, so it's not a decision we came to lightly.  Unfortunately, recent Java updates have broken Hack Slash Mine and Frizzil has not been reachable.  Frizzil is now a professional game developer who's worked on some really impressive titles, and doesn't usually have time to work on HSM.  As a result, we understand why it hasn't been updated, but unfortunately, we can't endorse the pack now as we could a few months ago.  We also have no means to fix the problem ourselves.

Users can get it running by installing Java 6 or Java 7 and selecting that java version from Launcher Options, so it is runnable.  We are not going to remove it from the Platform as we do with other packs that aren't Java 8 compatible, and we will continue to host and maintain the pack the best we can.  However, it will no longer automatically appear at the top of relevant search results and will no longer appear in the official modpacks list on the Platform.  We apologize to fans of the pack and hope that Hack Slash Mine will return again someday.

That's Pretty Much It!

It was a quiet week, but a lot is going on just under the surface- you'll see soon!  Come visit us on IRC, our forums, or reddit, and tell us what you'd like to see!

I believe Lex has only gotten LegacyJavaFixer for 1.6.4 atm - what version of Minecraft are you using?

atm?

It means at the moment. But we need to know your Minecraft version before you can help us, and give us a copy of the console log.

why no love for tekkitlite. ಥ_ಥ
regulinecolt009 5 years ago
Tekkit Lite has always been my favotie pack out of the tekkit trio, i'd love to see some support for the pack. the fact that it has the main machinary mods, along side the simplicity and not much of the complicated side-mods that aim for a far-destined goal. the pack is close to dead sadly

When frizzil is done updating H/M to 1.7.10 then open sourcing it, will it be supported on the pack and be featured again? you are right on him working on HSM but not having enough time for it :P http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/minecraft-mods/wip-mods/1438939-1-2-3-hack-slash-mine-streaming-updates-every?page=183

I don't think Frizzil is even going to update H/M to 1.7.10.
Posted by SomeWeirdo 5 years ago
SOMEWEIRDO, if you looked at the last page or two of the forum post, you'd see that Frizzil is doing some livestreaming of him updating H/SM to 1.7.10 he's also mentioned it in the chat

If you want Shaders Mod in AOTB, then you can add it yourself.

When is tekkit classic going to get an update to the current java 8?
Nobody369 5 years ago
I believe Tekkit Classic is no longer maintained. Don't quote me on this though.

This is also a bit strange because this was posted on a Thursday, not a Tuesday. :P

You can do all this which is great progress and all, but you don't update the good packs you have such as Attack Of The B-team which is still very fun.... and could be better if you guys put more into it ;-;

Can anyone tell me how to make a mod pack? I got the title and description part down and that's about it.

"[B#308] File version.json not found" I keep getting this error everytime I try and load any modpacks.
TheWildMongoose 5 years ago
wait, does this mean there coming out with a new pack to replace HSM or just a new pack I general or no new pack at all? I would really love a new pack as long as it is lower than 1.7.3 as I cannot get that version or higher :( my pc just will not allow me to get open gl 2.1 :(
