I have not blogged in a while, but I wanted to make an update about recent events.
Modding for Minecraft was quite the journey. I have learned a lot in terms of programming, Java and working with development teams. I have also made many mistakes, made many friends online and learned several important lessons. I am glad that I stepped into the Minecraft modding community, as it landed me jobs and led me to founding my own startup.
Quite a few people still email me asking me to write mods for them (as a freelance job). However, as I have previously mentioned in IRC chats, I have officially retired from Minecraft modding. I am also quite busy now with other projects. Although my modding journey ended with inconsistent releases and vaporware due to my busy schedule in real life, I hope what I have created and released throughout the years brought some joy to the people who played my mods. ICBM is now being worked on by DarkCow, and I believe it is in good hands.
The source code for my remaining mods are now open source on Github for those who want to continue where I have left off (https://github.com/calclavia/Electrodynamics). Feel free to make spin offs of any of my mods and release it.
As for myself, I am now working mostly in indie-game development and in mobile app development. Artillects is making great progress, and my team and I are testing it right now hoping for an alpha release soon. Calclavia is also officially founded as a software business, and updates from now on will be related to my work in app and indie-game development.
I wish the Minecraft modding community well. :)
