The thing is, barrels don't have a GUI. Its all about clicking certain ways. To put items into a barrel, right click with the item you want to put in. And left click to take items out. There are other features that you can look at in the features tab in the original post.

I looked on your mod and it looks like you want to be a modder. Let me point out that my mod is open source.

Yes, this mod is similar to the barrels added by factorization. I meant it to be this way too.
I’ll tell you why I made this mod in the first place:
I run a private server for my friends and me. I was running factorization on it. Everybody was happy using the mod pack I built for this server. I thought to myself: “Gee, I can make this server a lot better for the next map reset!” So I started to remove mods that really aren’t that great, Including Factorization. I and the other server members wanted the barrels but not any other stuff Factorization adds. So, as I love challenging when it comes to programming, I decided to make my own mod that adds barrels so I can ditch Factorization. Once finished, I did some bug testing witch friends, fixed the bugs then decided to release the mod for other people thinking the same thing as me.

Sounds like a cool idea. A new kind of storage is cool.

The truth is, I know nothing about java, but I am very eager to learn. Most of the tutorials don't really help me well. I used one of those mod making programs to make the mod.

"I have been working on for more than ten hours"

Yet you admit copying from factorization. Did you actually ask the owner?

You could at least credit Factorization. You even used their textures.

Um, did you ask permission from the author of Factorization first? Seeing as this is nearly a direct copy of his mod, with a few extra features.
I mean, cool mod and all, but I'd feel better using it if I knew that he didn't mind spin-offs.

Edit: If you're going to talk about "innovation", your mod doesn't have much. You don't improve on the interface, the textures, the idea, you just add a higher tier barrel. At the very least ask neptunepink first, so that he knows you're using his stuff.

Btw, don't give me all the "intellectual property patent/copyright shouldn't exist" crap. It doesn't matter: you copied him directly without even asking.

Nice mod, one of the two thing i needed from Factorization, second - modular armor and there is already one separate.
One suggestion - factorization barrels have marker on the front, could you add something like that? Its convinient to see where block picture should pop up.
I hope there will be no problems with neptunepink

No. I couldn't care less to ask anyway. People who keep ideas to them selves don't like other people innovation then. It's just like Apple and Google (If you don't know what I mean then look it up). These are mods for video games. There nobody is starting any kind of lawsuit now are we?
Not trying to start a fight but you have changed nothing in this mod to inovate it more and you should atleast ask him to use his texutures if you are.

Apart from that nice mod I feel the same way about factorization I just dont get the point in it when you have IC2 and other mods just kinda makes it useless

Looks good! Don't be discouraged by all the people saying you copied Factorization. As long as you provide your own code and textures I don't see anything wrong. Some competition on the storage front might even be good :) This is a neat standalone mod for those who already have too much tech mods installed and only want some barrels for compact storage. Factorization on the other hand have the awesome routers. So there's something for everyone.

Technicaly, if he didnt Copy the code from Factorisation, then its perfectly Legal. If you want to protect the IDEA, you need a Patent, which, unlike Copyright, is hard to get.
