So I am know that I am new face around these parts but some of you may have heard me or seen my name on the SOSIX. I am the project lead at Resonant Rise, the mod pack helping make Block 19.
The reason why I am have this thread and wanting all plugin developers to look here, is that I need to get a list of yes, no or your own message on this.
To stay true the ideology of Sponge and spirit, I want to include plugins or certain plugins into the Block 19 pack. The reason why I am asking to get permission here, is that with how ATLauncher aka ATL distributes mods and its content. Is that it has to be hosted on their server to be download. Basically RR devs have to upload the plugins to folder where the pack can tell the launcher to download from. Its essential a third party distribution but is secure.
So I am here to gather a public list of plugin developers who don’t mind having their plugin included in the pack. If you prefer to have your plugin downloaded from your site. I can have it set to take the users there. But I highly prefer allow ATL to distribute the mods and plugins.
Also dont worry about not having credit be given to you. ATL has a page to where it shows everything.
Just scroll down to the mods list and you see what I mean.
Below, please state if you don’t mind to have it distributed on ATL, opinions or concerns.
Plugin developers won’t have to do anything. Its up to RR devs to upload the newest plugins to ATL itself. Once ATL finishes adding some new features, then pack developers will be able to do auto updates.
It would probably be easier to individually reach out to developers of the few plugins that aren’t under licenses already permitting distribution, than try to get a list of every open source developer.
I’d wait for Ore If Ore includes an API (@lukegb?) it would be easier to just pull it, plus it could stay up-to-data. Also, any plugin licensed as Open Source is usually allowed to be redistributed, but worst-case scenario just compile it from source.
