Simple Barrels Update 31-07-2016

Hi guys, i’m currently working hard on making these mods as fast as i can but its the summer holidays so my 2 boys are currently at home.  The plan is to educate them in the ways of the gamedev so they can create their own games.  ANYWAY.  There was a big bugfix update for Simple Barrels a yesterday and thought i’d better let you guys know – it addresses several bugs including losing items from a barrel when its broken and a nasty duplication glitch.  The mod now has compatibility with Quark by Vaskii.  As always if anyone finds any more bugs, let me know – i cant fix them if i dont know about them.  :).

Have a good day, i’m going to be streaming for the rest of the day over on beam so come and join me!  Starting shortly.

Simple Barrels Update 16-7-16

Hey guys, just a quick update here, yesterday i felt like simple barrels was getting close to being ready for the FTB guys to at least take a look at it and see what they think. The upshot is they like it, and will be putting the mod into the FTB Unstable modpack over on curseforge early next week! So keep an eye out over on curseforge for the update (should be some time tuesday hopefully) and i’ll be sure to let everyone know when I see it.

I’m super excited and having a few days to polish things a little, i’m going to go ahead and see if i can implement the upgrades system.  This will make it easier to make early game barrels but still have the nice features the barrels have for later on in the game(e.g. tracking contents when you’ve been to the nether and got some quartz). I am also going to TRY and add reskinning items that allow you to modify any barrel so it has the finish of another barrel (e.g. so you can change an oak barrel into a forestry teak barrel).  I want players to have flexibility with the barrels but maintain balance.  At the same time I am also going to give modpack creators the power to modify the balance and features available.  As always i’ll post a tweet out to let you know the mod has been updated and i’ll put a youtube video up to explain the changes as well as post something on here.

Bye for now! :>


Ports and More Foods 1.2

So i recently realised I’m missing a few ports for various mods. namely a 1.10.2 release of more foods and a 1.9.4 release for simple barrels. Moving forwards, unless i get enough people asking, i’ll be dropping support for 1.8.x. We can concentrate on 1.9/1.10 and focus more on new content rather than duplicating existing content. Will continue to work towards a 1.2 release for more foods but may cut a few things out to get the release out sooner. We shall see. I have put up a poll on twitter to see what everyone thinks on the subject.

Have a think and let me know via the poll.

speak again soon,


Minecraft Modding Update 12/07/2016

So this is my first BLOG for  I’m going to keep things segregated somewhat, so updates for the stuff i’m working on plus anything thats slowed things down will be posted here, then there is a News section on the site for any mod releases and I’m considering putting a pain diary on here but I may push that to another seperate “site” on

Hi guys, I thought i’d post a quick update on how things are going.  The weekend was busy with work (and pain levels were quite high – this is still ongoing), and last 2 days i’ve not got a lot done, HOWEVER.  I’ve isolated the problem with Simple Barrels lagging things like crazy and as soon as i have a fix, i’ll post an update.  I should be adding a couple more features so the barrels start off much cheaper and there will be more options for them soon as well.

More Foods : Lots to do here still. Yet to add the new meals, around 75 crop models, a dozen or so crops.  All seeds are done, The water bucket is missing its model at moment. The campfire is being gutted and rewritten to use capabilities with a Heat API so that other items can make use of heat (as well as maybe attaching heat capabilities to e.g. lava).  Lots more ideas to come too.

I’ve recently run into problems with a few mods being ported to 1.10.x that don’t use capabilities not working with the barrels, specifically a pipe mod that was simple and to the point but which would not work at all because it didnt know how to insert items into my barrels.  Because of this i’m likely to put a simple pipe mod together to use with the barrels.  Will let you guys know.

Stay Crafty guys!
