That's really disappointing. This mod is really great, and is the only of its kind. It'd honestly get a lot more downloads if it had a good reputation again.. Good luck on integrating this with 1.8 forge, and I hope you get it working with 1.7.10!
It does work with 1.7.10 because I use it with a lot of mods.
I am getting a weird render issue. The loading screen works fine for the preload process, but when it gets to the loading resources part, it wigs out. The modpack works fine after the loading process is finished. Could be some form of stack overload?
