Unfortunately, the mod pack for the current version of Alice is poorly balanced compared to the previous releases, in that a large number of items have become considerably easy to obtain provided that you follow the right procedures. Now, this in effect means that you can rush through the game quickly, and as some of you have noticed, you can simply just get a lot of items for cheap now from others, without even playing the game.
With that in mind, a few weeks have passed and options are limited. Some have suggested that they may be interested in a restart of the world as they'd like to play from the beginning, without obtaining a lot of materials so easily. However, that would mean losing potentially a lot of work, so we'd like to avoid that as much as possible.
Much of the balancing issue has stemmed from bee-related additions, as certain mods were added to the modpack without the proper balancing that usually occurs in such a case.
Before we can do anything, we'd like to gauge the community's opinion on the matter, and entertain any dissent or suggestions. Please make a reply to this thread and post your feelings on the subject.
If we do end up restarting, we plan on adding new mods and adjusting the ones available:
- Tinker's Construct might make a return.
- Dimensional Doors may be added.
- Biomes o' Plenty may replace ExtraBiomesXL.
- GregTech/IC2 may be made easier in certain ways (i.e. less annoying cables).
- ... we're open to many other ideas
