Welcome to my little website! I'm Ellpeck, a student and programmer from Germany. I do a lot of stuff, actually. My life is pretty busy.
Here is a list of some of my bigger projects as well as some things you might know me from.
For a more exhaustive list of my projects, you can also check out the Social section.
💡 Actually Additions
Actually Additions is a rather popular Minecraft mod that I used to work on. It's become widely known in the modding community and has reached over 30 million downloads by now, which is crazy. I don't work on it anymore myself, but it's being maintained for current versions by someone else.Maintained CurseForge pageReport an issueOnline manual
🏡 Tiny Life
Tiny Life is a fun simulation game that tries to capture the essence of games like The Sims, but in an isometric pixelart style. It's currently in development, but you can already play it and even make your own mods!In development Check it out

These are other websites where you can find me and the things I do, including the pages where I publish my code and games and where I sometimes stream and upload videos. This list also includes a lot of ways to reach me.
Sometimes, some people ask me some questions about myself or my projects, so I decided to compile a list of some of the answers in a Q&A-like fashion so that I don't have to keep repeating them. If you're curious about me, this might be interesting to you!
Q: How old are you?
A: I'm years old. This automatically updates now, too, so I won't ever forget to update it again!
Q: Where are you from?
A: I am from Neuss, Germany and I'm currently living and going to university in Aachen, Germany.
Q: Why are you called Ellpeck?
A: Well, it actually isn't as interesting of a story as some of you might hope. Long story short, when I was little (and was, apparently, very bad at English), I decided to make a YouTube channel called "LetsPlayEveryGames." Shortly after, I also made a Minecraft account that I was going to call the same thing. At the time, though, there was a limit for how many characters your name could have, and so I opted for calling myself "LPEG" instead. When a friend of mine came along and started trying to pronounce that name, instead of saying each individual letter on its own, he started pronouncing it like a word: Ell-Peg. ...Ellpeck. I liked that pronounciation and so I stuck with the name.
Q: What languages do you speak?
Q: How do you make games?
A: I usually use the .NET-based framework MonoGame together with some libraries to make it a bit easier, including my own library, MLEM, which you can read about in the Projects section.
Q: When are you updating your Minecraft mods?
A: If you're asking about Actually Additions, I don't work on it anymore. If you're asking about any of my other mods: Don't. I'll do it when I feel like it.
Q: What's your job/occupation?
A: I'm currently studying Computer Science at the RWTH Aachen. I don't have a job on the side or anything, though.
Q: What do you use to code?
A: For Java, I use IntelliJ IDEA. For C#, I use JetBrains Rider. For most of my other projects, which are usually rather small, I use Visual Studio Code.
Q: What's your favorite programming language?
Q: What are your pronouns?
A: I'm cis male, so I go by he/him.
