As I stated once before in this thread, a long while back, I liked EE2, and I look forward to this mod, even if it takes out a large amount of what made EE2 as entertaining as it was for me way back when I played with it.
I see no reason for hate for the creator of this mod.
It makes me sad to see that.
I do hope that this mod becomes so good that people will no longer dredge up the arguements that have plagued this thread.

Dec 25, 2012Allow me to be a ray of sunshine in the darkness.A story to start with. It won't be that long.I used to play Minecraft a lot in the past, anyone remember when Compasses were added? Yeah, I started played one version before that.Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Once Minecraft got boring for me, I quit for awhile.
When the big changes came, hunger, etc, I didn't enjoy them.
Later, when I started watching Husky's Hermitcraft videos, I got into Minecraft again. This Technic pack, with EE2, and IC2, and all those mods helped reviatalize my enjoyment of this game.
EE2 in particular. I remember setting off on a trek into diamond land to get diamond and obsidian, make a portal, brave the nether, grab glowstone, and then enjoy making the transmutation tablet, knowing it was only the beginning of awesome items.
I used to make a few collectors, wait until I had the resources, and upgrade them once, or twice, converting coal into eventually Aeturnis, I can't spell that word, fuel.
I used to enjoy using the condensor after a long mining trip, smiling as stone converted to diamond.
Until I discovered that Gem of Eternal Density, anyway.
Alchemy bags surprisingly do get full of raw ore quickly.
When I made my first red matter pickaxe, I was so happy.
I never abused any glitches, I waited for my stuff, no matter how long it took.
However, I can see why it was all unbalanced, and while it makes me sad that some people spoiled EE2 for the rest of us,I fully support your changes in EE3.
That's rght, I'm someone who's most proudest moment was two pieces of the full gem armor set, boots and armor, back when Red matter was not 423,000 EMC or so.
Mostly from mining with like 30% collectors for fuel.
However, despite my enjoyment of not dying in a fire every time I fell into lava, , I fully support the changes you made, and I hope EE3 becomes as amazing, if not even more amazing, and less exploity, than EE2.
Also Editing this post blew up the paragraph breaks, so if it still looks weird, sorry.
Jun 27, 2012Ah. Why did Shpaget disappear?Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science
I wanted to get his reply.
Oh, well, anyone want to carry on that conversation?
Whether Neutron Stars would have a weight on the Earth, and if it was correct that it would be 100 million tons per thimbleful, or maybe I just misread it a bunch, and it would be more.
And for reference, weight is a product of gravity, is it not? Mass is constant?
a 2 liter bottle of soda weighs about 6 pounds, maybe?
The average human is 180 pounds for a male.
So, was I right in how tons vs. Tonnes work? Since a ton is an Imperial measurement of weight, vs the Tonnes being a mass unit?
I'll fully admit I'm wrong, I like learning.
Mostly from nice people that are not rude though.
Jun 25, 2012DavidB1111 posted a message on Was the dropping of the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki justified?Those stating that we shouldn't drop the bombs, and that it's murder, does not understand that at the time, the culture of the Japanese people would have not allowed them to surrender.Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science
The end result of not dropping those bombs would have been a full scale invasion of Japan, ending with the deaths of over 10 million Japanese people, most of which would have been civilians.
It's absurd folly to think that Japan would have surrendered easily.
It saddens me to see that people still don't understand that we dropped the bombs for a reason, and that reason was not to murder civiilans.
We weighed the costs back then, and we decided to go with the bombs.
Japan never would have recovered, and we probably wouldn't have any of the video games we now have if we invaded.
Plus, Japanese scientists have stated that we were right to have dropped the bomb. I think they know what they're talking about.
Also, Cosmic, murder is a bad thing, and I personally wouldn't kill Hitler, mostly because someone else would take over and we'd all be speaking German.

If aliens figured out how to convert mass to energy, they could quite easily destroy earth. The mass in a paperclip can destroy New York City when converted to energy. Get a bomb the size of an airplane, it wouldn't be any stretch of imagination that that could easily destroy the world.
I wouldn't quite believe that link at everything.
Transformed entirely to energy, such a house would yield the equivalent of about 1,170,000 megatons of TNT, which would be roughly 65 million times more powerful than the bomb that fell on Hiroshima. This is far more energy than would be needed to melt half the ice in Antarctica—and possibly enough to split Earth in half.
1,170,000 megatons is weak sauce.
From the article on Chicxulub crater.
The impactor had an estimated diameter of 10 km (6.2 mi) and delivered an estimated energy equivalent of 96 teratons of TNT (4×1023 J). By contrast, the most powerful man-made explosive device ever detonated, the Tsar Bomba, had a yield of only 50 megatons of TNT (2.1×1017 J),making the Chicxulub impact 2 million times more powerful. Even the most energetic known volcanic eruption, which released approximately 240 gigatons of TNT (1×1021 J) and created the La Garita Caldera, was substantially less powerful than the Chicxulub impact.
That's roughly 96 times more powerful than the house mass converted to energy on your link. We're still here.
In fact, according to how powerful Anti-matter is, you need 500 quadrillion tons of it to blow the earth apart.
For reference, an anti-matter reaction is the most mass to energy efficent explosive we can come up with.
200 pounds of it reacting with 200 pounds of matter is equal to a gigaton nuclear explosion.
THere are 2000 pounds in a ton.
If you want me to do the math I will. But the result will be at the very least 10 billion times larger than the impact of the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs.
Jun 20, 2012To be fair, the odds of them being affected by a disease on this planet are almost zero.Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science
No, really, it's more likely I will grow wings and fly before an alien race succums to a disease from the Earth.
Jun 18, 2012Posted in: Computer Science and Technologywell as use extremely high voltages of electricity which could kill you.
Minor Caveat. It's the amperage/ampage that kills you, not the voltage.
On topic, bulding a particle accelarator is not a good idea. A better idea would to be give me money.

Yes I am, and I am for gay marriage.Also, is davidb1111 conservative?
It may make me a small minority, but I don't mind.
As for marriage, it has been around for thousands of years before any religion has popped up. Zoroastrianism, I can't spell it, is probably younger than the act of marriage.
Zoro was the first montheistic religion, and without it, we wouldn't have Judaism or Christianity.
Anyone claiming marriage is a religious institution needs to go and read all about Marriage, because they obviously haven't.
Jun 13, 2012Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and ScienceAlso, if this is just a group of proud white people who aren't fond of minorities, why don't they just call themselves republicans instead of the KKK? Seems kind of redundant to use separate terms to describe the same people.
Wat. As a Republican, I take offense at that remark.
I know I'm not the only Republican here either.
Care to apologize for that remark?
On topic, I hate the KKK, and I hate racists in general which is why I also hate the Black Panthers, even if Samuel L. Jackson was a member way back when.
So, I am glad they aren't allowed to adopt a highway.
Also, I first heard about this in the news over a year ago.
I'm certain racism can go away, if we all start being nicer to each other.

EE2 was cool.When I saw this mod,I thought that You're God of modding. EE3 seems to be cool,too,but not as much as EE2. All technic packs uses MC 1.4.7,so,I think updating EE2 for 1.4.7 is best choice.Or just stop working on EE3 and re-make EE2,for newest versions of MC.
Here's example of profesionally spoilt mod:ThaumCraft.
And here's sense of my post:first update EE2 to 1.4.6,1.4.7 and 1.5.1,then continue working on EE3.
No here's the true sense of your post: "I'm a self entitled git, I think everything in the world should be made the way I want it, and then should be handed to me on a silver platter. I don't care to have any respect for the creators of this freely supplied mod, even though I couldn't program my way out of a paper bag."

In my personal opinion, I think that no one should be homosexual, because I find it unnatural and I do generally just not like it.
Well, I don't like your opinion, so I guess it's okay to ban it as well.

I think it's trying to communicate, what should we do?
Dec 6, 2012Killing mentally challenged people for being that way. Ummm... I would have to say no. Besides the morally and ethically dubious action in the act itself I'm gonna bring up a few things:Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science
First off: "They leech off society."
This is more or less untrue. Sure there are some that do but plenty of other don't. Sure they're probably not going to become master chefs, game show hosts or anything but they MIGHT. And I know from the centre near here that most of them hold steady jobs and provide a service, though sometimes menial. Most of them don't want to leech off of the society they live in (If they can understand the concept naturally) and with some assistance they can be perfectly functioning members of that society.
Second: "They provide no value"
This is completely untrue. Mentally challenged individuals provides a lot of value. They show that even people with severe disabilities can succeed at things that are difficult. Take the Paraolympics for a perfect example of this. Men and women from around the world with handicaps of all sorts competing on equal terms, providing moral boosts and bursts of inspiration to countless thousands.
Not good enough? What about the scientific value then? The study of disabilities, physical and psychological further technology and medical science by leagues. Medications, tools, design, knowledge of the mystery that is the human body and the human mind.
Thirdly: The procreation bit.
Note that far from all mental and physical handicaps are hereditary. Many such couples have healthy children that are in sync with the norm of our biological structure.
Aaand that's pretty much everything I have on the subject.
