How and where had you meet GregTech?

Simple question for everybody, but I think it will be interesting to know. And special question for Gregorius: why you decided to begin GT development ?

Originally I just wanted to add essential things that I felt were missing in MC, then I made things compatible, then I wanted to fix things that were just inconsistent, and then that ended up in me practically re-doing everything that already exists in a better way because everyone’s shit was broken as fuck, then I ditched GT5 for the same reason of being massively broken and started GT6.

Oh just forgot to tell about my meeting with GT;
My first version of GT was a GT3 on minecraft 1.5.2; I was young and a bit silly so I made “mod pack” myself, I just put there all mods what I could found. There was a GT too. I just played it in creative mod. Then 6(maybe) years passed and I visited “steamlynx” on YouTube, I heared about Ideal Industrial Assembly with GT5 and so I started playing it in survavial, some time latter I wanted to help it’s developers so I learned java a bit and start coding, so I’m here =)

I first saw GregTech when Gregorius first put out the lightning rod in the old IndustrialCraft, to much consternation of one of the IC2 devs. ^.^

Yeah but that was the Lightning Rod Mod, not GregTech. XD

That’s still what became gregtech when you started adding more though. ^.^

I was in the 4th grade maybe, and searching through packs on the FTB launcher. I found FTB Resurrection and tried it out. I saw that this mod named “GregTech” changed a lot of the recipes and added a lot of stuff, so I took a look into it and found out more. I spent a couple days grinding the BBF and found out that the EBF was a thing, so I basically ragequit after that, lol. Skip a couple years and I felt like revisiting that mod that made me ragequit and found out about GT5u in 2016 and saw Bear play with GT6. I played with GT6 and it was too much for me at the time, so i stuck with GT5u. I later went back to GT6 and found it much more enjoyable after Greg added some quality of life features. I started working on my addon and i’ve been loving it ever since :wink:

Hmm… The very first time was in 2013, when GT was more like an addon to IC and didn’t yet override pretty much an entire game :D. I remember it added the multiblocks Blast Furnace and the Grinder, and also the Chemical Processor that was a real pain for me to automate :).
On the next server there was GT5, but everyone on the server had avoided most of its changes - Steam was stored in a tank and was produced by solar mirrors… Although, as I remember, I was astounded by the recipes for Assembler and Mixer (I needed both of those to make a cake for Botania). At that time, everyone else on the server was getting really annoyed by the massive alterations, and decided to remove GT from next servers.
However, I was really curious about GT6, especially about the long progression and metal-smelting, and so I decided to start a solo-world, limiting myself to using just GT for everything, apart from cosmetics and some QoL features of other mods (like bags from Forestry). And so… Fast-forward 1.5 years, I’m still actively playing!
