If you went here for my Contact Info, that one is here.
If you went here for supporting my work, then you want to go here.
This Page is about me as a Person and contains Information, which may or may not be interessting to you.
So if you are interessted in knowing what kind of person I am, go ahead and read.
But be warned, if you suffer the "too much information"-syndrome then don’t read it, because I tell an awful lot about myself and also some of the issues I live with.
The reasons I tend to be so open are simple, first of all others see me and then notice "there is someone else with Problems similar to what I have", motivating them to also talk about their Problems more openly.
And secondly if people talk about their Problems, someone might walk by and give a helpful tip on solving said Problems, which works especially well on the Internet.
I don’t care about pity or sympathy, even if my constant mentioning of Issues might seem like that, it’s kinda annoying because it makes everything seem whiny, inspiring people to be mean to each other in the end.
Gregorius Techneticies, that is my full Name on the Internet, but it’s easier to just say Greg, Gregorius, GregoriusT or even Grag if you want to be funny. I also prefer being talked to using Gregorius rather than my IRL Name.
28 (born June 1991), let’s see if I update this 2020, or if I will totally forget about it.
Male, but I don’t care about gender and I’m asexual.
Germany / Deutschland (Northern Bavaria / Nordbayern).
English and German.
I did study Computer Science, but failed that in the end.
You don’t need any educational Degrees to be a good Developer, you need to just care about what you are doing and try to make it good aswell! That will get almost anyone into the upper 5 percent of best Developers.
Every Dev who I saw fail at what they were doing, just did not give a shit about fixing their Problems, or started blindly listening to a very small selection of their Community, calling that selection "Democracy" despite never having given anyone the ability to vote properly or at all in the first place.
For examples on Bad Development, see all GregTech Ports or Clones, that have not been done by me, yes they are all bad without any exception.
Unemployed but ofcourse working on GregTech. And then the Game I do after that.
I am not able to actually do stuff for anyone else, just because they tell/pay me to, I need a real reason to do something.
I’m mainly driven by Inspiration and some sort of OCD, for almost anything else just I just end in messing up royally, because of not being able to remember tasks or their order.
Patreon, Donations and the Support I get in real life are the only ways I can earn Money, everything else won’t work. Universal Basic Income would pretty much fix almost my entire Life.
My personal opinion about Money is that it’s just a plaything for immature people, and that binding the survival of anyone to Money is just morally wrong. But until that Bullshit is solved for me, I thank the Community for giving me the Money I need to survive.
I highly depend on others regarding staying alive (especially acquiring groceries due to logistics reasons), because of the several small problems, that I have.
That said, I will NOT do any sort of Mod Commissions nor paid additions of Features, I work towards the stuff I have on mind and that is it.
Working on the things I get inspired to do. That is mainly GregTech by the way. And then the Game I do after GregTech.
Getting inspired through watching Videos, which include: Science Stuff, Sci Fi Series (Stargate, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Orville etc.), Anime (especially the long lived ones, such as Dragonball, One Piece and Naruto), Super Hero related (Marvel, DC, One Punch Man - oh wait that last one is also an Anime), Cartoons (Adventure Time, Rick & Morty, South Park, Futurama, Simpsons, Family Guy, RWBY), any Dungeons & Dragons Campaigns by TeamFourStar, Let’s Plays, Minecraft, Games, Game/Film Theory, Animations and some funny Stuff.
Listening to Videogame Music and Remixes of it: OC-Remix, SilvaGunner, most from the Kirby, Sonic, Mario and Megaman Games and some others.
Sometimes when I’m stressed or just not inspired at that moment, I also play Videogames other than Minecraft, recently it has been StarMade, Terraria, Factorio, Enter the Gungeon, Sonic Mania, Undertale/Deltarune, Minecraft, Cossacks and Pokemon Omega Ruby. Soon also Shovel Knight, once the "King of Cards" Update comes out, and oh great that one’s delayed again…
I enjoy being nice to the people who I genuinely like. Sure there are not many of those, but even just being a nice person to me makes me like someone. I also enjoy to listen to Friends talking about their Life, and giving them advice if I have advices to give, even though I sometimes end up remembering own Problems I could have solved differently (what is kinda bad, because I always find new ways to solve old Stuff).
Puns are something I do very often, same goes for taking things too literally or out of context. It’s just too much fun to not do that at times!
As you may have noticed, all those things are stuff I can do at home, I don’t leave the house very often, and prefer staying inside, sometimes for multiple weeks if I’m lucky.
Normally no breakfast unless I leave the House very early, in which case two Slices of Bread with Salami or similar.
I usually eat one Plate (or up to two and a half Plates in case of good Pasta/Noodles) of whatever is cooked for Lunch.
A whole Plate full of Fruits in the evening. Most of the time it is an Apple plus 3 kinds of the following: 1-2 Bananas, 2-3 Kiwis (Green & Yellow), 2-4 Plums, 1-3 Nectarines, Grapes (Green & Purple), Strawberries, Cherries, Currants (Red & White, rarely Black) or a few pieces of diced Watermelon
And about two Packages (100-300g each) of Snacks/Sweets per Week.
I only drink Mineral Water of the non-carbonated kind, about a Bottle (1.5L) per day.
This "Diet" makes me lose about one or two kilogramm per Month if nothing extraordinary happens (like Christmas Holiday season), but everyone is different, so don’t take these values as an advice.
As for favourite Foods in general: Lasagna, Strawberries, Kiwis (Green & Yellow), Cherries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Currants (Red & White), Berliner with icing (or was it called frosting?) and filled with Jelly (Donut alike), Stollen (Raisin Fruitcake with powdered Sugar ontop)
I’m about 1.80m tall,
Have a full Beard unless I just got my brown Hair cut short (yep, no red hair IRL),
Wear eggman-esque blue tinted circular Glasses outside (my eyes are insanely light sensitive to the point of not being able to drive),
And am a typical Nerd, who focuses more on his own Stuff than on his appearance (I don’t really care how I appear to others and that is rather obvious).
I’m a Minimalist, if there is something I don’t really need, I won’t get or use it. I don’t have a Smartphone for that very reason, because I don’t need that and I don’t see a purpose in it.
There are some things on me that would definitely classify as OCD, but I can live with them and they are part of me, and they are not that extreme.
I technically can’t feel anything positive, if I say I enjoy something, it’s just the relaxing kind of enjoyment to me, distracting me from bad stuff, or just doing things so I don’t theorize about doing them anymore. I don’t even feel anything at all, while I am laughing.
So as long as nothing bad happens to me, I am feeling fine. But "actually feeling good" is very rare and even when it happens, it is never repeatable after happening once per whatever caused it. I don’t even desire "feeling actually good" at all, so one could consider me apathic in that sense. Last time I actually felt good was right when Mario Odyssey came out and I listened to its Title Theme and the Festival Theme, it’s like feeling the love and craftsmanship in something.
Almost everything I do in life revolves around my creativity (or mostly getting as many things out of my head as possible), there are very few other things, and currently only a few people I actually do at least somewhat care about.
Most of my time is spent in my Room at the Computer doing stuff (such as GT) and sometimes relaxing to recharge my Brain and rarely watching TV, simply to finish the Series I started watching years ago. I usually don’t leave my Room unless it is really necessary, because it is one of the very few places where I’m able to feel relaxed at and calm down, since nothing extraordinary happens there to distract me.
Obviously I am not a sporty person at all, I don’t move all that much, but I don’t care about that being unhealthy, nor about me being very weak, I just live my life as is and am okay with that.
In general I like and accept myself the way I am, and don’t want anyone to attempt making me feel otherwise, nor to try changing me, especially not with the fake intent of "helping me".
A lot of times, when interacting with any people, I tend to "reflect" the emotion I get from the interaction, meaning I usually feel the same way as them to some extend, but also that I enjoy others feeling happy, even if that emotion doesn’t originate from my own mind, it’s still there and I feel it.
But this does not apply to my opinion about things. My opinion can normally only be changed via Logic.
Someday I’d love to share my life with somebody (gender irrelevant), who is genuinely interested in being together with me, while still keeping everything as relaxed as normally. Might sound a bit egocentric, but I wouldn’t enjoy to be together with anyone, who doesn’t also enjoy to be with me, since I don’t want to make anyone I care about unhappy, especially by being "too boring" in the long run.
I tend to capitalise Nouns despite using the English Language, as you might have noticed.
The ideal Room-Temperature for me is between 18 and 21°C, so I feel actually motivated to do stuff. 16°C is the minimum before it gets too cold, and anything above 24°C is already way too hot for me.
Often my Brain can be described as "Single-Core-Processor with Low RAM, High End Graphics Card and Large SSD", simply because I can only do one thing at a time, dont respond well to interruptions, cant remember many things in the short term, but remember a lot of Stuff in the long term.

Well, there is some sort of origin to me, ofcourse. This is the IRL inspiration and has not much to do with the Lore of my own Universe.
The Name Greg originates from the Pirate Captain in Gothic II, who I liked. As you might know, that Pirate Captain has Black Hair, not Red Hair, but he was the very Root of this, and that was long time, before I even started Modding (I also privately modded the Game "Clonk" for 3 years, before modding MC).
But now for where the Hair came from, in some year a week or two after new year I found a Lego Figurine that was a little bit covered in snow and ashes (probably from Kids blowing up small Stuff on new years eve), and unsurprisingly it was a red haired Pirate Figurine with an eyepatch.
So I decided to use that one as "myself" when playing Lego, or to be precise, just the Head, the outfit wasn’t that good, and named it Greg.
As you probably know, Greg wears a mostly orange Hat, that one originates from Lego aswell and was originally one of those red Hats from the Train Lego Sets, but it is also supposed to resemble Super Marios Hat and so I mixed up both of those, Fun Fact: I wear the Mario Hat in Terraria, because it’s the closest I can get to that Hat.
There is more, I played "Thief II - Metal Age" and I saw how most of the Robots the Mechanists built, had a circular glowing right eye as Camera, I thought it looked awesome and replaced the eyepatch with such an eye.
That is the reason why on the colored Logo there is two different colors for the Glasses, because one is that mechanical eye, while the other is just a blue tinted Monocle mounted to that thing.
Said Monocle was ofcourse inspired by Dr. Eggmans Glasses, even if I had to cut them in half for keeping the eye mechanical.
The Beard was kept from the original Greg Char but expanded by a slightly smaller Eggman Mustache, because I liked its look.
Gregs Body consists out of Nanites similar to the Human Shape Replicators in Stargate and Stargate Atlantis, but with an actual Mechanical Skeleton inside, that contains some more intricate Technology with Backup Nanite Sets, and the usage of several different Types of Nanites in parallel to be more redundant, for less vulnerability to Disruptor Technology.
The Greg→Gregorius change was simply to make the name more latin due to Stargate Atlantis being a part of the Lore related Origin of Gregorius.
The Last Name "Techneticies" is essentially originating from the words Technology and Net, together with a fitting word ending. Later I started to "claim", that the Element Technetium got named after me.
I draw all my Profile Pics myself and am not planning to change that, but I appreciate the effort. ;) (yes I already got that kind of fan art)
If I somehow had the chance to be a real life version of Gregorius (or anything remotely close to that), I wouldn’t hesitate and almost instantly take it! (preferrably after asking for the terms and conditions of that)
First and foremost, I hate when others who don’t fully know how I work, try to solve my problems in a way that would make them even worse. This goes so far that it can literally knock me out, because of the extreme stress it causes. Sure advices are good and okay, but don’t try to push me to do them, that is the worst thing you can do.
I avoid stress wherever possible and won’t do anything that would cause me stress, because of the devastating sideeffects it has on me. This is one of the reasons I can’t do anything that others tell me to do, since expectations = stress for me, just because I usually don’t understand what is actually expected from me. Don’t expect me to do anything in particular, that is the safest bet.
Speaking of things I avoid, I tend to not start any contact with anyone I don’t know, people have to contact me, or I have to be at the location on a regular basis (like my IRC channel), or am expected to appear. Also a reason I’m alone right now, because I can’t start speaking to random new people, despite wanting someone to be together with. They would have to talk to me.
I can’t do "nothing" without almost falling asleep because of the boredom, I sincerely hate having to wait or being idle, and it is the worst torture for me. I dislike travelling for that reason, because it always takes ages to get anywhere, even if its just right around the corner. I would prefer just staying at home and doing my own stuff almost all day.
My Attention can always only focus on one thing, not more. Now you might say "sure nobody can truly Multitask, where is the issue?", the Issue is that I can’t "Fake-Multitask" either, it takes a while to switch my attention away from things, so much in fact that when I get distracted, I keep in mind what I did before, and need to recollect myself before continuing. Due to this, I can’t do certain things at all, such as driving vehicles or having more than 2 chat tabs/windows open at once.
As I said, I can only think about one thing at a time, so as soon as I even just worry about something, I’m absolutely unable to think properly about anything else unrelated to it until it is resolved, or until I gave up.
The only way to make me do stuff is successfully inspiring me to do it. So unless I get the Idea to do something myself, or feel mentally good about doing it, there is a high chance that I will lack the motivation to do it properly or even at all, even if it is relatively important.
I tend to be annoyed whenever I have to repeat myself or am asked the same question over and over without being told what the problem of my answer was. Also very obvious questions where one of my previous answers was along the lines of "just try it yourself!" or "look it up in NEI!" being asked in rapid succession, in which case I will often just stop answering alltogether.
Due to many of these Problems I am not independant at all. I tend to avoid all bad and annoying things and just focus on the good part of life, but that only works if I can keep all the bad/annoying things out of my mind. I just can’t live with most responsibilities, and have to be free from them, in order to live out my creativity.
And that is what I need to survive - the total freedom to just be a creative person and forget about anything that worries me. If I didn’t have that freedom to some extend, I would probably end up in a very bad situation.
Yes, I’m a very open person and essentially gave a good rough overview about me as a whole. Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the extend and detail of this. Almost all the Information about me listed here, could be found on other Sources, where I talked about myself aswell. I just compacted it and made it easier to access. Social Media does that very often aswell. Judge me if you want, I don’t care. I just feel much better if people can look up who/what I am, by just looking at this Page.
