Fun GregTech Modpack

    Got a nice small modpack together to test with till all mods are ready for 1.7.2 to start a new server with. After a few minor changes all seems to work pretty well, although I am curious what will happen with IC2 with yet again Enet problems breaking things. Also not sure about future compatability between GregTech and Buildcraft. The way it seems to be going now, GregTech might as well become a standalone mod without relying on IC2. Would also love to get rid of MFR, because I want to keep this modpack really hard, but as OP as this mod is, it does have a RedNet system that is by far as buggy as Project Red or Red Logic. So we are not using any of the MFR stuff apart from RedNet. Will see what happens and what changes need to be made once 1.7.2 is ready for all mods in this pack. Will see what happens ...
    I am truly enjoying this pack for a while already and yes, its very damn hard! No Ender chests or any ways to teleport items or liquids. No portals either apart from the Vanilla Nether portals, which do kinda work with Railcraft though. GregTech changed a lot and still is adding more and more resources as well as functionality. I have a feeling he is preparing for IC2 and Buildcraft to disappear? For those who last played GregTech in 1.4.7-1.5.2, you will be in for a treat ;-) Love the pipes and covers and they are truly advanced and allow for very compact setups. Logi-pipes are of course great as well, but are of course based on Buildcraft. I do however prefer them over the in my opinion way too OP Applied Energistics networks that I hate using and seem like magic and unreal to me. I bet in a month or two I will be able to do some first tests for 1.7.2 with this pack. Might add/remove a few mods and make some modifications, but I like this small pack as it is.
    Will run this modpack on the server as soon as 1.7.2 is stable and ready. This pack will however not run 7 days a week, because the server is meant for projects to work/build on. So sometimes I might have to backup the world and install a project instead causing some downtime for the multiplayer server. If you would like to join the server in the near future, let me know.
