Piston Development Update #1

piston

This is the first development update for our upcoming Technic Launcher modpack, Piston. A little under a month ago, we announced the successor to our dead modpack 'NOVA' called Piston. Piston follows NOVA's footsteps in proving a modpack that improves Minecraft, not changes it to the point where you couldn't really call it Minecraft (like Tekkit). Piston will include a few lightweight mods that will make playing Minecraft easier and more fun, but still  be 100% compatible with vanilla Minecraft worlds and servers.

But this is a development update, so let's talk about some development! What makes Piston unique is that it is compiled and put together automatically, using Piston Builder. Piston Builder is a program we are making that, once run, will download the latest mods and pack them together in a modpack with no user interaction. This means that we can put the entire modpack together without doing anything.

We just recently finished the entire automatic modpack build system, so every night at about 3 AM Eastern Standard Time our computer compiles and uploads Piston with the latest mods using Piston Builder and uploads it to Technic. This means that people using Piston will get the very latest mods, and the very latest Minecraft Forge, EVERY DAY. No other modpack does that.

So that's it for now, hopefully we will have more news and details for you by Sunday!
