Fixing "Etag download for failed with code 522" in old ForgeGradle
View mcpbot

MCPBot is finally dead, and so goes with it every old version of ForgeGradle. Hope you're not maintaining any 1.7-1.12 mods anymore (or, god forbid, 1.6)! Because if you do, nobody will help you, and if you ask you will be banned from all official Forge channels. Fun fun fun. Game over.

...Or not. Someone asked ArchiveBot to rescue the MCPBot exports, and a WARC file containing a seemingly complete archive is available for download. And, these old ForgeGradle versions download mappings over plain HTTP, not HTTPS!

Some context

I maintain Ears, a mod available for too many versions of Minecraft, and it uses old versions of ForgeGradle to build the 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9-1.11, and 1.12 ports. Because reengineering these old versions of ForgeGradle is a huge goddamn wa

Common Sense Balancing Standard (CSBS)

  • No ore tripling, quadrupling, quintupling, etc. Ever.
    • The absolute limit on ore multiplication is 2.6 ingots per ore block, with typical gains being closer to 1.6.
  • A single block can never store more than 36 stacks of items, even when it's part of a multiblock structure.
  • Furnace-burning fuels should produce no more than 30RF per furnace fuel tick.
    • It can produce this as slowly or as quickly as you want.
  • Wireless interactions are permissible, and a trivial wireless implementation generally performs well.
    • However, well-designed network-topography-aware systems (i.e. wires) often outstrip the performance of wireless systems, and occasionally even dumb cellular systems do. More importantly, wireless is unsatisfying gameplay.
  • Time is not a balancing mechanic.
