Or we are already dead and too stupid to realize it.

Eloraam says this in twitter a few seconds ago

I want to thank everyone who donated over the past week. It's let me take a few days of unpaid leave to try to finish up RP.

To all the naysayers who complained about Elo's donation link being posted without her releasing an update... pay attention. You're about to learn what doing a good thing can result in:

Sometimes doing something good has repercussions. Hopefully people will appreciate this from now on.

am i the only one that's absolutely certain elo will release rp2? and i think that will happen pretty soon too. anyway, if i have to wait a month or so for a piece of software i can't write that will give me tons and tons of fun, i can definitely do it. if i consider the fact that i don't pay for it, i definitely think we can wait a couple weeks more for the release. if you follow DW20 you know there's still a couple bugs to track down, but you also know we are pretty close to a release point... at least i hope so. anyway, why don't you go play with another great mod and have fun with that while you wait for rp2, instead of keeping this post alive and well fed with horrible and useless comments? that's what i'm doing, and i'm definitely enjoing tc3 and the others great mods out there!

EDIT: oh and by the way, if you think it's that easy to write a mod and update it while the game code changes so much (we are not talking about udating from 1.4.2 to 1.4.5, we are talking about updating from 1.2.5 to 1.3+), take elo's code (it's really easy. i know you're not allowed to do that, but you're not allowed to flame and post stupid stuff in here too, in theory) and look at it and try to update it. i tried that and i gave up after about 20 minutes. it's really difficult to do anything like that. stop complaining.

Why wouldn't she release it? she spent months working on it. not releasing it would be stupid.

that's exactly my point. but i've read posts somewhere in this thread saying "i'm sure she won't release it" "i'm losing interest in this" "rp2 is vaporware"
posts like that really make me angry.

@kwami

Thanks for that and the same back to you. And yes. I do agree that it's quite silent on Eloraams side. Though i still think that if you get a lot of comments even if you do speak up I can imagine that you don't feel obliged to say anything anymore. Especially when you can suspect that the only result is more comments and most likely extra pressure to get something released. Or run the risk of making false promises that get you into trouble again. It's almost a no win situation.
If you didn't already, you should skim through the earlier parts of the topic a bit. You can see that Elo used to reply regularly, but even then there were comments on a regular basis. Some were just bug reports and questions and there were some feature requests, but also there were plenty of unpleasant comments that weren't nescesary.

About the Github part. Well.. Guess not making it open source is just a choice of hers. I'm ok with that, but I think that any opinion about that is valid and personal. I'm not a programmer, but in my profession as Graphic designer I've had quite a few projects that I really liked and I was really proud of. I think I would hate to see them being used in a different way then I intended them. It might be the same for her.

Anyway. Once again, thanks for an adult and founded opinion.

Thank you Elorram!

That's all the communication I needed to be happy. Elo is taking time out of her day, out of her work, to finish up something she won't see a fraction of the money from just for us, the community.

Thank you!!

I'll be happy for it to be out if nothing more than to see the rabid fanboyism and the never being happy folk go back into their holes and let it just be 'A nice mod' again.  You state one opinion that the fanboy group doesn't like and 'How dare you day even a cross thing about this!  You must be a 15 year old child that doesn't know what it's like to be an adult!  She has EVERY right to do nothing and you have NO right to speak!'  All the way down the line to 'Hey, got this bug fixed!'  'Ur not working fast enough!  Give it now!  Fix bugs later!'.  Even asking for a happy medium is blown up because of how quick people are to snap at the others.  I think this is the most active non-active mod in the history of Minecraft at this point o.O

It'l be a nice treat atleast to see if we can fit all the redpower gizmos into the builds already running for 1.4.5.. Whole bunch of stuff has changed on both fronts so it's going to take some serious rethinking of layouts.

You know, not everyone celebrates Christmas and gets all sentimental and wants to spend time with their family. I respect those that do, but to be honest, you shouldn't need a holiday to spend time with people you care about. This is why I'll be doing my own thing (playing MC) on the 25th, and hanging out with my friends on the 26th.

I just sent a donation via paypal to Elo since this seems to be the thing needed to help speed up a release.  If you want to help her have more time to work on RP2 then maybe you can make a small donation also.  (I am in no way related to Elo or have any vested interest other than I will admit I really want to see RP2 out before the end of the year.)

Go away u troll.  How is that even REMOTELY related to redpower? I mean I've seen some out there posts, but this...


Except that every time there's an update with RP or change I have to "pay" over and over again. Not so with minecraft. Not only that, but with MC I get communication on the next releases, schedules, timelines, the whole shebang. Unfortunately we don't get that from RP.

(This is directed at the public, quote is just an example)
U have to have something seriously wrong with you to consider waiting a few seconds a payment. The fact is this mod is 100% free, even if adfly made u wait  5 whole minutes. That is NO payment. That's like me saying, "Hey. This reply took me a whole 4 minutes to type, please pay me $45 for that lost time." It's rediclous. How awful, all these people deserve not to ever play Minecraft ever again. I seriously think if people aren't satisfied with a free service, then they shouldn't take it.  

No, you don't have to update, so you don't have to pay. You want to update, so you go through a few seconds of waiting, just be happy you don't have to download it over a 1200 baud modem.
I hear that. I remember those days. You see, I have recently upgraded to a 1201 modem :) (that's a joke btw, so some of the more "defunct" people understand)

With Elo planning a release soon, I wonder how many days of unpaid leave it will take to clean up the thread.....

Hello everyone, i'm a big fan of redpower, in fact, i started using it when it was just a redstone timer and i never stopped since then. i stalked every single page of this thread ^^
i would like to ask this : i'm french and my english isn't that good, can somebody please explain me what Eloraam means by "unpaid leave" ? when i read her last tweet it seems like some words are missing.

Unpaid leave means she's taking a few days without pay from her real life employment. In this case, so she can work on Redpower. :)

thank you, i didn't know it was technically possible to do this, i never heard of somebody doing this in France.
i really hope she is not putting her job in the balance, even if the fans rage, real life comes first
