Respectfully, I disagree with everything you just said, apart from your first point about colored skies being better than a constant blue. Saying that something is "unique to BOP" is simply being evasive and refusing to add a config option out of... laziness or spitefulness, take your pick. Similarly, the argument that rubies mined in different parts of the real world cannot be used for the same applications, and therefore rubies mined in minecraft shouldn't be, is laughable. This is minecraft. My goal is not to emulate real life, but rather to escape from it.
Respectfully I disagree with everything you just said. Drop BoP from your mods if you're not happy.
Laziness or spitefulness. Those are the only two options?
If you think the BoP team is lazy do it yourself. The code is open source. Right there on GitHub.
Rather than spiteful I'd say they own the mod, do it on their own time for no monetary benefit, and since no one is a paying customer they don't want to waste personal time in their own lives to appease angry complainers that are getting additional MC awesomeness for free.
We, as mod consumers, are unpaying customers. We should walk with our feet if we don't like the direction a mod is going.
