Yep. 1.6 sucked, but those mods (in the title) are finally updated.

Lemme brief you guys about the version changes.

The version of the mod is defined by A.B.C, for example, 1.2.5, where 1 represents A, 2 represents B and 5 represents C.

From now on, for my mods:

A represents the Minecraft version the mod was made for. This means it increases every new major Minecraft update. This affects all my mods and is global. The value for 1.6.x is 2.

B represents major mod version. This increases every time there is a major change in the way the mod works which will break saves (even across Minecraft versions).

C represents minor mod version. This increases every time there is a minor change, aka a bug fix etc, and will not break saves.

For all my mods, the version number has been reset to 2.0.0.




Gravity Gun
– Reverted respect for block placement due to more complaints about it than without it.

– Reverted respect for block placement due to more complaints about it than without it.

PG Changelog:

– Fixed placing chests on portals crashing and corrupting the world.

Version Naming changes:

Now that I’m using runtime deobfuscation for some of my mods, Portalgun will have a change of version naming.

Old naming: <Minecraft version>v<Build number>

New naming: <Initial number>.<Major release>.<Minor release>

Initial Number: Changes everytime an update to minecraft breaks runtime deobfuscation. Resets Major/Minor Release Number.
Major Release: Changes everytime something mod breaking is done, eg new mod content or major change of mod structure.
Minor Release: Changes everytime some small fixes which does not break the mod are done.



PortalGun 1.5.0v2
– Fixed critical block placement/removal issue with causes it’s neighbours not to update.
– Fixed crashing when dying in a singleplayer hardcore world.
– Fixed NEI console spam.
– Renamed the Material Emancipation Grid to Grill.
– Attempted fix for player stuck in ground bug.
– Attempted mem leak patch.

GravityGun 1.5.0v2
– Fixed critical grabbing issue not updating surrounding blocks
– Attempted mem leak patching.


At this time, the primary links (Creeperrepo) are down, so use the mirror links first.

Gravity Gun, PortalGun and Trail Mix now requires a “shared library” mod dependency, iChun Util. iChun Util makes it easier for me to reference similar functions used by all three mods. Think of it of something like “CodeChickenCore”, except it isn’t a coremod.

Also, the 4 mentioned mods now use the new “Runtime Deobfuscation” method provided by FML/Forge. As Minecraft updates there should be no reason to update certain mods, unless things break, thanks to FML.

Unfortunately to allow this, the file size of a bunch of the mods may have increased slightly (heh, what’s 1 or 2 more extra mb nowadays anyways).

If any issues were to arise from runtime deobf, let me know immediately and I will see what I can do about it.

Unknown to many, today (March 9) is actually Portal Gun’s 2nd birthday! Yep, it’s been two long years of this mod being available to the public, and of course, the various updates including content and fixes. Wow, how much it has grown since then. How much many things have changed since then, too.

Today marks a special milestone for the mod. You guys playing with portals today may notice a surprise on your wall portals. An easter egg has been put in on wall portals as a mark of another year passed, as well as to bring truth to “The cake is a lie!”.

In accordance to it’s birthday, I will also be introducing a half-baked idea (it’s not really “sciency”, I agree, but it was an idea, and I’m trying it out), called Portal Gun “Hard Mode” <–clickable. It’s a config option which makes getting a Portal Gun even harder. Some have even dubbed it “Greg mode”. Either way, this config will be included in PortalGun builds 1.5 onwards, and is very heavily subject to change. If you don’t like it, don’t use it. Like I said, it doesn’t really fit the theme of the mod, and will probably change in the future.

Besides that, I will also be opening my mod pack perms on PortalGun and Gravity Gun, for Private FTB Packs. From today onwards, Private FTB Packs are allowed to include PortalGun and/or Gravity Gun as long as the FTB Team is permitted to use them. This however, means that if I were to revoke permissions from the FTB Team, it would immediately revoke them from all Private FTB Packs as well, and they will have to be removed. Thankfully, I don’t see that likely any time soon, enjoy it while it lasts!
