PSA: Please don't emulate the core-mod + mod design pattern
« on: January 03, 2017, 01:00:05 AM »

  • It creates version incompatibilities.
  • It creates installation headaches.
  • It creates leftover garbage from uninstalled mods.
It was a bad idea, let Minecraft mod community be a lesson learned.

There was one that was recently posted which modified core, which I think sparked this post :)

After finding this post linked on my mod page, I think I know what OP really means.

core - mod + mod design pattern I think meant to have an "intermediate mod" needed for other mods to work. For example, Haplo's Miscellaneous "CORE" mod. I guess Haplo can get away with it by including a few new items here or there :P
