I recently started making a Nether series. I will use this mod as soon as the crash bugs are fixed, I've been following these mods and suggestions for a while now, but never got round to using one.
EDIT: I really want to join this mod. I was technically part of the team that worke on the mod previously, and although you already have a texturer and a banner artist, I would really like to help, especially if it involves art. Tell me if there's anything you need help with. If you need more texturers in the future, remember to tell me!
There is a fix coming soon for all the bugs that you have listed
ClumsyRecon has been helping me on the Chest bug he has found the problem and this means we have to make ower own render as when notch updated the chest he bound the BlockChest.class to the render
-Chest and Workbench Guis Crash when opened(FIXED Workbench)
-Leaves don't decay and drop don't drop saplings(FIXED)
-If the player steps on frost the game crashes(FIXED)
-Glow Sand looks like a Wooden Plank when falling and turns back after(FIXED)
ClumsyRecon has join the team also so all welcome him he will be helping with some of the code and a bug fixer
