So, as I update mods and switch more of them over to Fabric, I'm sure I'll frequently get asked "Will you port to Forge" or "Why not Forge," so I figured I'd make a document explaining why and link to it instead of typing up the explanation every time.

The Short Version

Maintaining mods for two different mod loaders is time consuming, and when choosing between them, Fabric is the clear choice to me. The lead developer of Forge, LexManos, has essentially told me he will not support features that allow me to update at least one of my mods past 1.12.2, and on top of that, he did so very rudely while treating me like a complete idiot for trying to make it possible to continue using Forge for that mod.

A quick guide to formulas in the config for the Clans Minecraft mod.

c gets replaced with the clan's current claim count.
f gets replaced with the clan's economy account balance.
p gets replaced with the clan's member count.
d gets replaced with the number of defenders the raid had, if applicable, or the number of online clan members in survival mode otherwise.
w gets replaced with the average Win-Loss Ratio of the raiding party, if applicable, or 1 otherwise.
If you just want a constant value, that works too! Just put the number you want to set it to as the formula.
