you might want to get in touch with our project, cause we are not using forge at all and that way our coders basically recoded the whole mg game.
Everytime a new mod comes out and we like the idea or only parts of it the headcoder and his assitant coders go for it and code them by themself from crap if they decide to grant us the thing. So you might consider having a custom launcher like we got for your modpack as well othewise you might really got a lot of trouble i assume. If in our game a new feature is added (doesn´t matter if mojang or others) it´s basically a update for the running thing without a big delay. We recieve constant updates round about twice a month.
Good luck, be creative!
Is it used to transmit electricity from long distances? You can have a generator far away from your base and then you can click with a tool and connect it up to your base's machines. It can also be close by as long as you have them connected.
