I have a thread explaining some of my ideas here. I need help with coding and textures though (I can do basic modeling, just not texturing. I'm still learning mod coding). If anyone can help, please message me. (and NO I'm not paying anyone to be my tutor/coder/artist, I'm not making any money off of this, so I'm not going to spend any.) I just want someone who can lend spare time. EDIT: Yes, you will receive credit for helping.
-previous mod coding experience (preferrably with tech mods)
-texture and modeling experience
-Github (or some other free code sharing site)
-Non-monetary dev or team
Note: Please read the link, or you will have no idea what I'm talking about. It is far too extensive to discuss in this thread. Yes, I know some of the ideas are ridiculous, but most of it is totally doable.
EDIT: Scrapped 1.8 version. Starting over in 1.10 since you say the coding is easier.
This thread has been resurrected from the dead. I had nearly given up on this since 1.8 code was just dumb. I've decided to try again in 1.10. Help would be greatly appreciated as I want this mod to look and function well. I'm still a total noob at this, but a noob with big ideas.
