Who are you and what have you done with iguana_man?!
I'm Parker8283! I love Minecraft, and have been toying with modding since Beta 1.8.1. I haven't published anything USEFUL yet, but I do know how to mod. With the 1.7 release, I've been assisting modders with the 1.7 update by taking away the compiler errors and some major bugs, then giving them back their mod and letting them resume their work. When I approached iguana_man to do the same, he told me that he didn't want to work on his mods at the moment, so I had his permission to release my own version until he comes back (and that's a big if). So here we are!
Is iguana_man going to update his mods HIMSELF?
From what he's told me, he won't be back anytime soon. Everyone has a life that they have to tend to, and sometimes it separates them from modding for a long period of time. This could be the case. In all honesty, I have no idea. He'll come back if he wants and when he can.
Do you have iguana_man's permission to do this?
Yes, otherwise I wouldn't be doing this. If you check his original thread, he has a link to mine (if you're seeing this in the first day or so of this topic, it may not be there yet; give him time.)
From iguana_man's original thread:
New weight restriction and encumbrance mechanic
Reduce all block/item stack sizes
Terrain affects movement speed
Configurable torch recipe
Stun effect on hit
Now I know adding weight and reducing the items you can carry is not a popular idea. The reason behind it is not a desire for realism, but to encourage the use of minecarts. You go mining and can bring back tons of materials, so currently there is no need for them.
Coal is abundant and after a while you have stacks upon stacks and can just ignore it. You can make and carry so many torches you can spam them everywhere. I like them to be a precious resource, not something you use to stop mobs from spawning.
I've also added movement restrictions, for when you walk on certain blocks or when wearing heavy armour. Also getting hit stuns you for a short period. These effects also apply to mobs to keep things fair.
If you like the survival aspect of minecraft give the mod a try, you might like it.
This mod is designed for me and represents my personal preferences. That said, I am happy to hear your ideas and comments. If I use an idea you suggest, I will credit you.
DELETE 1.6.X CONFIG IF IT EXISTS

I am working with progwml6 on Hunger Overhaul, the guys making TCon will work on the tweaks for it, and SO SORRY about the broken download links. It has been fixed. It's a temporary hosting place, and got IP addresses mixed up.
Thank you thank you so much for this.Can I ask do you plan to ad your own tweaks or just maintain the ones iguana man already had? I would like an option to reduce the amount of planks and sticks given from logs.Thanks again, trying it out now.
I want to see what the community wants added if anything at all.
Theres no need to tell me. I get notifications on ALL issues and PRs made to my repo. Thanks though.
Alrighty, thought it would be a safe bet to leave a post just in case lol. Thanks for the reply on the issue, gonna fix it now and in terms of adding anything, nothing that I can think of. Thanks again.
