I'd like to install the Redpower mod, but every time that this comes to my mind I try to imagine the situation after I installed it and I feel like minecraft wouldn't be pure anymore, full or risks and bugs or will simply ruin my old save games or that my games started and saved with the mod will be not be compatible with a vanilla version of minecraft.
I'm not gonna ask you if I should mod minecraft or not. I just want to ask:
- What happens internally to the minecraft application?
- What happens with the old saved games?
- What is the compatibility of modded saved games versus a vanilla minecraft installation?
- What else should I be aware of?
