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!
Cheers, and Happy Birthday, Portal Gun!
