I'm getting ready to start a MineCraft 1.8.9 Server with MineCraft Forge and the latest bleeding edge mods, is there an interest here of people that wish to join the server? (will be invite only). Cast your vote in the poll, reply with other comments.
In related news, my first Minecraft Mod is underway for 1.8.9, learning Forge/Java/Minecraft all at once is surely a headache but I'm getting things done.. Basic items and blocks implemented, smelting and recipe handler is done, now to move on to more complicated things.
