@niteskype You don’t. That is why I am asking if they can publish the 1.8 version that @stan_littlebits said was originally written.
Mods typically use Forge to integrate with Minecraft. Currently, the majority of mods are written for 1.7.10 and not 1.8 (though more are being written for the new version). The issue is that there were a lot of changes between 1.7 and 1.8, so it takes time for everyone to update everything to make stuff compatible. Because of this, as I read in earlier posts, @stan_littlebits mentioned that the mod was re-written for 1.7.10 so that it would be more compatible with the majority of the mods out there.
Updating a mod can be a little complicated, especially between big versions like 1.7 and 1.8. because you need to update the dependencies such as Forge, but it doesn’t always work so easily. Plus you sometimes need to go back into the code and change things so that it reflects new API changes.
I was about to dig in and update the mod myself but then I read that there supposedly is already a 1.8 version of the mod, so I inquired about getting it so that I don’t have to do a bunch of work trying to update.
Also, you can run it without Technic Launcher, but it would require you to load Forge in your Minecraft directory and you would still have to be running 1.7.10.
