Direwolf20_1_5 1.1.1 Update

Later today we will be upgrading to the 1.1.1 version of the Direwolf20_1_5 modpack. The configs are already written and it's ready to go at any time, but we want to give people some time to discover this post so it won't come in the night like a ninja.

There are a few changes for those who are interested, I recommend reading about them here: http://forum.feed-the-beast.com/threads/changelog-for-direwolf20-1-5-2-modpack.27601/

I will hopefully be writing up some additional information today as well.

Also, I am including a writeup of what changes have been made to the default configs for those that are interested. The only major change is that I've disabled the crafting of the Enderthermic Pump, everything else is as it has been from the start, and of course there are some changes to the defaults on the added mods as well.

As to the Enderthermic Pump, we had never intended for it to be craftable in the first place, but I forgot to disable in initially, there are a few reasons for this. FIrst, it is mostly redundant, there are already ways to pump liquids in the nether, we do not really need another. Secondly, it acts as a chunkloader which isn't a big deal, but it degrades the value of standalone chunkloaders. The worst problem though, is that as a chunkloader, it dynamically expands the number of chunks it loads to continue operating, and offers no way to change or eliminate this behavior in the config file. This "feature" poses more of a threat to performance in the long run than the flowing lava does, and with no way to change or limit it our only option was to disable it. Lastly, another mod allows us to change the flowing characteristics of lava to be like that of water so the primary reason to use it has been negated by a more performance friendly solution.

The defaults for Logistics Pipes have also been tweaked for performance reasons, which will limit the size of logistics networks and the speed at which they update for changes to the network. We'll see how things go, but Logistics Pipes has always been a computationally intense mod, so I advise using it in moderation, if it gets to be too much we will be forced to nerf it more or disable it entirely in the worst case. On the other hand, if it doesn't hit the server too badly we may let it stretch its legs a bit more. We would just prefer to err on the conservative side, so it's less likely that any future changes will be negative ones.
