Relhax Modpack is shutting down

Since today Relhax Modpack is discontinued. This is a huge loss for us, and sadly, the one cannot be avoided. We would like give a big hand to Relhax for five years of glorious work they have been making. Below you can read project owner's last message made in the modpack's installer, who is Willster419.


On April 20th, 2022, the Relhax Modpack was shut down. I want to give a personal thank you to all our contributers and users for a successful 5+ years!

On January 1st, 2017, I set a challenge to myself to not only re-create the OMC modpack in a modern UI, but to make the fastest package installation system of any modpack that existed. I started as a team of 4, taking 3 members of OMC who wanted to contribute to the project. Over the course of 4 years, I designed, built, and re-built the modpack application from scratch, spending tens of thousands of hours. At one point, the team grew to over 8 people from most WoT server regions. During the process, I grew as a programmer, learned about common software practices, and specialized in application multi-threading and handling concurrent operations.I gained experience through the project, and got to interact with a great modding community. It allowed me to contribute back to the Relic Gaming Community, a group I joined in 2014.

As of this year, I finally finished my design work on the most optimized and efficient installer I could make for the community.Seeing the project meet my original goal, and my interest in the game (and the project) dwindling, I decided to close the project. It was a hard decision to make, but I did not want to continue to support a project I no longer had the interest to maintain.I think it would have reflected poorly on the quality of product, and it would not be fair to end users. I wanted to close the project while it was still in a healthy state.

Again, thank you to everyone. It was a fun 5+ years, and I will miss it.
