Hello. I am Xbony2. I started playing Minecraft in 1.2.5, so you could say I've been around for a while. In 1.4.2, I got into playing the Feed The Beast Beta Pack A, and later moved to the (Original) MindCrack Pack and then to FTB Ultimate plus a few mods (I moved my world over each time). I'm an avid modded fan and haven't looked back! I started coding and modding for the first time in 1.4.7, although it didn't work out so well. I improved with time, and in 1.7.2 I created a working and somewhat decent mod called "Bitm" (Bony's Industrial Technology Mod) although it was never released. I did get into a few other projects; I helped port IC2 Nuclear Control to 1.7.2 and I am currently the unofficial maintainer of it (I've helped port a couple of other mods too, but none are as well-known as that one). When the author of my favorite mod, GregTech, announced he would use this wiki, the Feed The Beast Wiki, as GregTech's official wiki starting with GregTech 5, I decided to make it my official wiki as well for Nuclear Control. The FTB Wiki's IndustrialCraft 2 section was fairly incomplete (and still is >.>), so I decided to work on it and go expand it. I got into documenting a few mods, and in 2015 I ended up focusing more on documentation than modding. I am currently the most active editor (and also the craziest). I've developed a greater interest in wikis and documentation, and although I still focus on my home wiki (this wiki), I contribute a fair amount to other Gamepedia wikis and to other wikis in general (mostly just fixing stuff). As of this time of writing, I have more than 40,000 edits across all of my wiki accounts (mostly small contributions, but then again, most contributions are small by nature). I can't really play modded Minecraft (and sometimes other games) without documenting stuff, which sometimes leads to the creation of very arbitrary pages.

Number of Wiki Articles: 15,896

Goal for 2017: document the entirety of All the Mods 3, or whatever the general 1.12 pack will be.

Things I have done on this wiki:

Current focuses[edit | edit source]

  • School... yeah, we'll see what happens to my activity. Will probably be real low for the next two weeks but increase steadily after that. I'd like to check the RCs of my usual wikis every day but I probably won't patrol everything. I'll probably still be around in Discord, Slack, IRC, etc. I highly encourage other editors to step up to make up for my absence (although I'm a bit doubtful that they will, but if they can prove me wrong that would be awesome).
  • Modoff-
  • Updating/finishing off current mods-
  • Document Roots (maybe).
  • Documents Roots 2 (maybe).
  • Document Extra Utilities 2 (maybe).
  • Document Tech Reborn a little bit I guess?
  • Document Industrial Foregoing.
  • Misc maintenance and improvements.
  • Eat newcomers.

Mods that I kinda wanna document[edit | edit source]

This could be seen by some as a TODO list, but it's not all stuff that I'll necessarily get around to, but would like to. These aren't "reserved" by me or anything; if you ask me "hey bony what mods need documentation?" I might point you to this list (or say "all of them", which is more accurate ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). These aren't in any order.

Contact[edit | edit source]

  • The very much preferred place to contact me is on my talk page! If you have something to say to me, I would highly prefer you put something there (that's why this is at the top). You can even use it for non-wiki stuff if you want, nobody cares that much.
  • And not a bad place to contact me is #FTB-Wikiconnect. I'm there pretty much there 24/7 (well, my account is). I'm on a few other IRC channels too, but I read over pretty much read every message in there.
  • You can also add me on the Twitch Desktop App (previously Curse/CurseVoice). More for non-verbal communication unless I know you well (the idea of talking to translators with bad English and bad microphones scares me). I'm in the Feed The Beast server as well as a few other servers.
  • You can poke me on Discord (pretty much in every Minecraft mod-related channel) or Gamepedia's Slack. Hit up the FTB Wiki Discord!
  • You can hit me up on the Tweeter @xbony2. May occasionally contain some adult-ish material.

Languages[edit | edit source]

  • English- I'm a native speaker of English.
    • Dialect- American English. I'm technically Southern, but I don't think I have much of an accent if any (not like I like talking to people anyway). I say "ya'll" and "ain't" sometimes though (usually not seriously).
  • Spanish- I was learning Spanish in school. Tenía la clase de español tres último año. Tendré la clase de español cuatro después (tal vez) I'm probably not going to be studying Spanish anymore, due to having more important hard classes to focus on. Spanish get pretty hard in the higher classes; as I like to say, you can't be fully prepared for a Spanish III test unless you're a native speaker.
    • Dialect- I haven't seen really got into Spanish enough to have a sense of its dialects. I use "tú" and "ustedes" to address people in 2nd person (I guess I'd try to use "usted" to address some people if I was in a Spanish-speaking country, but I'm less used to that and would probably blurb out a tú unless I thought carefully about what I was saying). It's reasonable to assume I speak with an American accent. I often pronounce the Spanish "b" and "v" like an English "v," and "y" and "ll" like an English "y" (like in "you" or "yeah"). I like saying "bacán" (which is pronounced more like "va-can" in English).
  • Lojban- coi .i I've studied Lojban from reading the reference manual and contributing to Wiktionary, as well as doing a tiny bit of translation (Minecraft, here, Lojban Wikipedia). I've lost the interest recently though.
  • Latin- I might be taking Latin next year. Why? Well, Latin I is very likely much easier than Spanish IV, Latin (the class) is more grammar-focused than vocabulary-focused (which is important to me as a linguist), and also no speaking. I hate speaking to people!
  • Esperanto- I studied some Esperanto on Duolingo. I generally dislike the language (just doesn't feel right, I don't even know), and have stopped learning it. I'm kind of disappointed that it's the face of constructed languages (cough). I'm probably not going to return to it unless I get a written note that it impresses babes.
  • Ukrainian- I don't really know any Ukrainian, but I vow to learn some someday. I might study Russian and other slavic languages based off that. Russian would be more practical, and they are very similar languages from what I understand (in fact, some people consider the slavic languages (especially east slavic) to all be dialects of the same language)

Alternate names[edit | edit source]

  • Preferred nicknamed- Bony
  • Actual, English name- Eric
  • Spanish name- Blas Raúl Esteban
  • Lojban name- bonis (full sumti would be la bonis.)
  • Esperanto name- Bono (literally means "goodness")
  • (Transliterated) Bulgarian- Бони (Bony) or Ерик (Eric)
  • (Transliterated) Greek- Μπόνη (Bony) or Έρικ (Eric)
  • (Semi-Transliterated) Inuktitut- ᕙᓂ (Bony, actually "vani")

Wikis I sometimes poke around at for structural ideas[edit | edit source]

IRC[edit | edit source]

IRC Channels I am found at:

  • irc.esper.net
    • #ftb-wiki (voiced)
    • #ftb-wiki-dev
    • #nuclearcontrol2 (admin)
    • #thesteamtank (admin)
    • #industrial-craft
    • #ic-dev
    • #gregtech
    • #hiddensecrets (admin)
    • #betadev (admin)
    • #btm
    • #gt-dev
    • #ruminecraftwiki

Note my nicknames are sometimes not completely correct- I can be named "xbony2|afk" when I'm not AFK (if I'm only around for ~30 minutes I won't bother changing my nickname) and I can be named "xbony2" and be AFK (potty, my IRC client restarted, I forgot to change it, whatever). If you wanna poke me, go ahead and try, it probably won't hurt.
