This project is in dedication of the RELIC Gaming Community, as well as the OMC modpack dev team (which includes me, :)). A big thank you to them and their original work, especially to grumpelumpf. He gave the idea and design of the database driver approach, and is the reason why this modpack is where it is today. His work done on the OMC modpack over the years will not be forgotten.
When I looked at the current modpack installers, they all look the same: in size, in UI, and were all made with the inno setup creator. Many describe these installers as “clunky and slow”. Trying to get that perfect mod setup can sometimes take hours. Have you ever had a “modpack setup night”?
The goal of this project is to redefine what a modpack installer is, from the templace UI to the install engine. Instead of using inno setup, I decided to create my own install engine from scratch in Microsoft’s C# programming language. Some of the UI features in this modpack are new(tab category view), and some are kept in line with previous modpacks (right click to preview).
Instead of a giant unscrollable list of hard-to-find mods to select from, the mods are presented in tabs, each tab page being a mod catagory. Xvm has a tab page, garage stats have a page, damagelogs have a page, etc. Mods per tab are sorted alphabetically
For the first time in modpack history, there is a search feature where you can search for “that one mod” you want.
There are multiple views to display the mod selection list in. Currently we have OMC legacy view and the Relhax default view
The application allows for DPI and font based application scaling. It is also 4K display ready.
The Mod selection window and mod preview window are resizeable. The application will remember your last window settings and apply them upon loading the selection list
The font can be changed to comic sans. This is a critical feature.
The modpack can inform you if your local installation is out of date. This saves you from running a useless installation.
The OMC mod preview window has been re-designed, while keeping the familiar user interface:
The preview window supports image links, sound file links, webpage links, and direct HTML code.
Pictures load asynchronously. This means that The UI does not lock up waiting for the picture to load.
The preview window is web-based, meaning you hard drive won’t become cluttered with cached pictures.
Each mod or config can have up to 1.2 million pictures. Other modpacks have only a few, or only 1 picture
—Mod selections can be saved—
Like OMC and Aslains, your mods selection can be saved.
Unlike Aslains, you can save as many mod selections as you want, and save them where ever you like.
Unlike OMC, you can use this selection file to automate the install process (See Automation Section)
For the first time in modpack history, the installation process is multi-threaded, meaning that it can install multiple mods at once. The install process is optimized for 8 core systems.
The loading and installation times of this modpack vs. inno setup modpacks have been reduced by up to 89% and 60% on a standard hard drive using the standard extraction mode. The times are even further reduced for those with WoT installed on an SSD using the multicore extraction mode.
The modpack and be set at command line with a “/auto-install config_file_name.xml” switch to automatically install the modpack, with your preference of mods selected. In this situation, you could install without any interaction, and update all your mods in a few seconds.
