I played a little more skyblock, and made some progress. I'm pretty bottlenecked on infrastructure. My temptation is to rush Applied Energistics and try to set up autocrafting for common components. I don't know if that would actually work, especially since I don't have any kind of unified power system.
I tried to put together a helper library for modeling linguistic evolution, but it turns out parts of such a thing are very complicated, and I need more hands-on experience with what I'm trying to make shortcuts for.
So, I'm right now trying to put together a bunch of examples, manually. It's going to be pretty nuts, I can tell, but hopefully I'll learn something from it.
I'll get back to that for now.
