Hey there Glf! My name's Aurora, and I'm a helper on The One Ring server. A player named "HippoManPlayer" recently showed up on our server, and I noticed you had him down on a watch list for server owners. Do you have any idea what he has done to be on this list?
I know a decent amount of Java, and I am fairly certain there are a lot of others that know more code than I do that are not currently part of the mod team. Is there any way for us to help you and Mevans implement current features, especially in updating to 1.15, so that it is expedited? Or do you think the mod team want to do it all on their own, and we should just let them know of bugs?
I guess you found me through my YouTube series. Thanks for watching.
Surprise surprise, I am actually very involved in chemistry research, but not directly involved in the development of the mod.
For the past eight years, there's only been one coder for the mod -- Mevans, and I see no reason why this will -- or should -- change anytime soon.
Even if you wanted to help, it's highly doubtful that you could help out much. Mevans is doing either a master's degree in mathematics (if I remember correctly) as he's developing the mod. Without this high level of mathematical knowledge, many of the mod's features wouldn't exist. Quoting Boyd:
In case anybody is curious, the estimations made for the Mod to be translated 1:1 would be about 4 Lord of the Rings trilogies worth of characters, but then all of it is math equations, and if 1 answer is wrong, the entire thing fails.
In short: this mod is Mevans' model railroad, and his main personal hobby, and he'd much prefer doing all the work himself.
Hi man, thanks for helping with this mod a lot, I was just wondering, is there any way I can help with the mod? I want to help out like I am so passionate about this mod, I don't know how to mod into minecraft but I can speak a lot of languages and have a lot of drive. Is there any way I can help out at all?
Sorry to bother you, I just really want to do my bit.
Hello, We are working on creating a new lord of the rings based modpack server for technic. We've got big plans and want to make sure we've got all the permissions we need for the mods we use, as we feel strongly about making sure everyone gets credit for the amazing mods they've created. Would it be ok if we used your Lord of the Rings mod and labeled you as the creator of it in our permissions page? Thanks a ton for considering us to host your work. I saw your mud wiki's page of questions that need answering and took the time to fill it out Motivations: Well this is quite an easy question, my team is creating a server for lotr as the one we were previously on had tremendous issues. I played as Sauron on that server and led the entirety of the evil faction, now, we are looking to correct those issues and create a better experience for players. Differentiation: We plan on utilizing lotr as a foundation for our entire modpack, but also planning on filling out the rest with mods like Are Magica II and Mine Fantasy II. Our modpack will be more role play based than any others we could find, but with the mods to actually make it enjoyable for all. Responsibility: Me and my team are entirely devoted to building a server with a better experience for the entire player base, we plan on running it for many years to come. Time: Time is no issue, we are all devoted players and already have a huge player base asking us when the pack will be ready (most of these are from the previous server we left). Money: No issue, my co-owner will be financing the venture but we will also be hosting donations Technical knowledge: 100% under control, I have a devoted team and we are somewhat new to this, but we also have a few experienced team members who have been staff on other servers before. Adequate hardware and network bandwidth: Again, under control by the other co-owner who will be controlling finance. Sincerely, Future Hopeful Owner of Middle Earth: Coming of War - Sorry if this isn't the right place, it was very difficult to find any contact information.
You could ask here if you want to, although you don't need permission to use this mod or any other mod for that matter. It will likely take months or even years to get a reply so I would advise you phrase it something like this "we're using your mod, let us know if you want us to stop".
