is creating Minecraft Mods




per month


Howdy!  I make a few Minecraft mods which you may or may not have heard of.  If you use FTB, then you may have played around with Hopper Ducts.  If you use Resonant Rise/Yogscast Complete Pack/Crackpack/etc, then you might have seen Redstone Paste.  Then there's a couple of other smaller mods, EnderManage, and AllTheItems.

I initially got into the Minecraft modding scene by contributing slightly to the Buildcraft project, which gave me a lot of insight into working on a larger group project.  But I generally enjoy creating simpler mods with a specific purpose, which offer increased functionality while maintaining a somewhat vanilla feel.  Part of the motivation was to also be able to update my own mods as Minecraft evolves, and to be able to take advantage of these features before the larger mods are able to update.  

Along the way, a surprising number of people took to Hopper Ducts and Redstone Paste, and I was fortunate enough to see them make their way into popular modpacks on the various launchers.  The popularity that this continued to bring more than made up for any loss of ad pennies from modpack downloads, because people getting to actually play the mods is the entire point, after all.

I've always maintained multiple download links on my mods, including ad-free links, so that people can choose to support what I do if they wish to do so, while still avoiding they hassle of ads if they prefer.  The small amount of revenue I've been fortunate to get through modding has been very beneficial to me, and is encouraging to see that people will still choose an ad-supported link despite there being an alternative.  

Patreon seems like a nice way for people to actively contribute to modders while still allowing everyone to enjoy the convenience of modpacks.  So if people use and enjoy the mods I make, and wish to contribute in this way rather than dealing with ads or any of that nonsense, then it would be very much appreciated.  The community has always been the most encouraging aspect to creating mods, which I hope to continue doing!
