    Hey guys, we're hard at work here with some huge ModAPI improvements!

    Unfortunately, changes on this magnitude usually lead to a few mods breaking. We've tried our best to minimize breaking, and we're currently testing everything we can think to test. The biggest change has to do with MyGameLogicComponent, or block scripts. I can't spoil all the details just yet, but there are potentially some timing issues that result in some strange edge cases.

    If your mod breaks next week, I just ask that you have patience. Report the error, and we'll get it fixed.

    I think you'll all be very excited to see what we've got in store for you :D

    They are adding Killer Klowns From Outer Space to the game. You can only kill them when they stop dancing.

    Nope. That really isn't a possibility I'm afraid. Also it won't break anything. And that's not modding :p

    Is the breaking change anything related to Concurrency?

    Could you at least tell us if the changes are going to affect a large number of classes or just a few functional block types? Are you changing function names, whats going on? I'm pretty terrified all my time finding workarounds for my mod is going to waste before I can even release the mod.

    Technically it is modding if someone adds it other than the developers but I don't think that's going to be something they add anyway; biggest problem I fore-see is porting this weeks dev-branch intergrid communications to stable - a lot of people are going to be upset over their mods no longer working if that causes issues.
