It makes me sad that you won't be updating this... I wish I had found this sooner, like A LOT sooner.
You should check out the CultureCraft thread (link on the OP). It will, when released, include most if not all of the content from this mod (revised, of course) as well as plenty of other new, interesting, fun content. Please note that I am without a computer, so development is on hold as I can't code without one, and most of the information on that thread is outdated, but the mod WILL be going ahead ASAP.
