Abbreviation conventions

There are a few conventions for abbreviated mod names:

  • Abbreviations should, of course, be based off the mod name.
  • Smaller mods should use longer abbreviations, as the abbreviations are rarely used. For examples, BunnyTech is abbreviated as BUNTCH, and Long Fall Boots is abbreviated as LONGFALLBO.
  • Larger mods should use shorter abbreviations when possible. For example, Tinkers' Construct is abbreviated as TC.
  • When possible, mods that have common abbreviations should use those abbreviations. For example, IndustrialCraft 2 is abbreviated as IC2, and Thaumcraft 5 is abbreviated as TC5.
  • One-character abbreviations should usually not be used unless the mod is very large and/or the abbreviation is very commonly used. For example, Minecraft is abbreviated as V.
