No, I will not backport this or develop it for a different modloader. You can though!

And yes, you can use this in your modpack. Just make sure to give credit.

By downloading this mod you forfeit your right to use it as an example of Mojang being lazy.

Thanks to Parkdum for taking the glorious screenshot that became the mod icon.

Gipple not included.
