drybones967, Is it the mod: "Diablonite"? If yes, I am sorry, I have started updating the MCF Mod List not long ago and I am mainly looking at the Mod Submissions on the website: http://modlist.mcf.li/submit. I'll add it in the next update.
wow as i thought, 1.8 mods are mainly a bunch of noname mods
maybe in 1.9 it will get better.
Thanks for the insult, but if you look at some of the mods, they are good. For example, searching for minestrapp 4 in the google search you can find one of the best mods out there. If you also take your time in the mcf modlist, thaumcraft is in there as well as some other great smaller ones.
1.8 is not barren, its full of little sprouts of life.
Hey! anybody knows about a 1.8.9 list? that would be great
MCP and forge aren't out for 1.8.9 yet, so there aren't very many mods. 1.8.8 mods should be completely compatible with 1.8.9 servers, and you won't really lose anything by not using 1.8.9, though - the only changes were trapped chest rendering during Christmas season (that's over, so it doesn't matter right now) and some realms stuff (mods don't mix well with realms). And apparently a water exit side thing (OK, I didn't realize that was fixed and I'm kinda happy about it).
That said, I have updated the World Downloader mod to 1.8.9 (just an hour ago or so), and I think optifine for 1.8.8 also works with 1.8.9. In fact, I think many mods will be 1.8.8/1.8.9 compatible as 1.8.9 changed so few things, but obviously if you're installing it on the wrong version you're going to have to deal with any crashes you encounter.
The only bug that matters in that version was MC-42150, where trapped chests wouldn't get retextured on christmas while normal ones would. That bug's irrelevant now - it only matters on a few days of the year and in other cases doesn't effect anyone. There were also some realms changes, but realms is not usable with mods, so that doesn't matter.
The wiki incorrectly claims that MC-2324 was fixed in 1.8.9. This isn't true - half of the bug is still present in 1.8.9 just as it is in 1.8.8 (and 1.8) and the other half of the bug is fixed by 1.8.
For modded users, 1.8.8 is the same as 1.8.9. It's still a huge step up from 1.8.0, though, so 1.8.8 is preferable to 1.8.0.

Mod Developer, The Mods that I am Currently developing:
Q: Is the mod available on more than just singleplayer? (Choose any that apply)
Choices: (a. Singleplayer (SSP)) (b. Multiplayer (SMP)) (c. Local Multiplayer (LAN)) (d. Same file for both client and server (Universal)) A: Universal
Q: Does the mod require Forge? If not, is it at least compatible with Forge? (Choose only one)
Choices: (a. Required) (b. Compatible) (c. Not Compatible) A: Required
Q: Could you please provide a concise description of the mod? (Few sentences to a paragraph) A: Adds 7 new ores and 9 new block types with many variations (blocks, bricks, stairs, slabs, fence, walls, gates, ladders, torches, pillars, etc), some with unique models and animations. There are "ultimate" unique looking weapons, and various sets of armor that when worn gives an cool series of armor set bonuses. This mod also has detailed configs that allow for the disabling or enabling of crafting saddles and horse armor, creating music discs, decrafting mod blocks back into items, or the crafting of all mod weapons, tools, or armor independently.
MCP (the decompilation tool) and Minecraft Forge aren't updated to 1.9 yet. They're working on it, but as of right now only 1.8.9 is available.
However, the thread will be updated to 1.9 (the title will be changed, at least) when it's available. That's what's been done in the past.
The Minecraft Forge people are delaying because there 'might be a snapshot that changes something'. Imo all links in the chain of people, from mojave, to mod tools, to mods add unnecessary dawdling and pointing the finger at others to justify delaying. It's not a healthy situation imo.
