Apologies to everyone for not getting this out sooner. Recently there has been some major issues going on with our dedi hosts and we have been down for a collective of about 16 days. Now that the hosts have finally responded to our emails...we can now access all our files. It was through a bit of deliberation and discussion that we will no longer continue services with the current host past this month and are working currently on retrieving all our files and migrate to a new dedi. Hopefully we will be back up within the week.
In other news, everyone been catching up on some new movies or television?
Personally I've caught up on some Game of Thrones and Dragon Ball Super. What about you all?
Please no spoilers.
Like the title says I'm looking for builders to help me out with a large build project. Experience with World Edit and VoxelSniper a plus. Comfortable with building styles such as Medieval, Fantasy etc (Think Skyrim and WOW. If interested please message me on the forums. If you have some examples of your past builds that would be wonderful.
I updated the server today at 14:00 to version 1.6.1 in line with the recommended release! Thanks C0FFIN for letting me know on skype that a new version was out because i wouldn't have noticed otherwise. Sorry for being so inactive but I'm right in the middle of exams. They'll be over soon (i keep telling myself)
I like to post the changelog whenever we update but annoyingly FTB haven't released an official changelog for any of the updates between 1.5.3 and 1.6.1 so we're flying blind here and i made my own!
I checked a few bugs that i knew about that i had a hunch might be fixed, but I'm really not sure what's new in this version, what's been fixed or anything.
Things i checked
Refined Relocation actually works now (It was totally broken last version, the filter just didn't work at all)
Good news, Quantum quarries don't bug out and drop all the items on the ground in an unreachable dimension anymore!
Introducing personal drop parties
Drop parties are being introduced as a new reward for completing certain tasks that help drive more traffic to the server. Unlike simply voting, these tasks are slightly more time consuming, such as leaving a review. While we know that many would help out without asking for anything in return, it's always nice to get some rewards!
How do i earn a drop party?
The drop party menu can be found by going to the main menu on the server with ./m From there it will tell you what tasks are currently available and the reward that you will get upon completion. These are not automatic so you may need to wait a little bit until an admin logs in. After that you will see a new icon appear in the drop party menu.
How does it work?
To start it, simply click it in the menu whenever you want. We recommend that you do it in an area with plenty of space and turn your sound on because there is music to go with it. Any players standing...
Hey everybody. I know this is a few days late. I had a post all saved and ready to go on the day and then completely forgot to post it! Whoops!
FTB Beyond is the latest kitchen sink pack from the FTB team. A far less structured modpack to skyfactory. There are some new mods that you may not have tried out before such as embers, roots, and psi (although that last one was in skyfactory, it is nonetheless very awesome) as well as some old favourites like tinkers and the return of Thermal Expansion!
As far as server structure goes, No islands like skyfactory obviously. We have an economy again including the ability to make shops (You set them up in the same way as signshop, but currently only the Buy, Sell and Trade shops are available on sponge sadly). We are using Nations for protections + claims. Its very similar to TownyAdvanced that we had a while back (a long while back, That's the...
Updated Skyfactory to 3.0.8 today. Have yet to find all the new things but can i just say now... They totally ruined the item textures in mystical agriculture. ALL the essences look awful now compared to what they were like before.
A Tier 3 growth crystal was added (#Expensive)
ExtraUtils2 added various Opinium cores and i have absolutely no idea what in the world they do. If anybody figures this mystery out please let me know. They look fancy.
Spare Mystical agriculture seeds can be turned into resources now with a seed reprocessor
Dying in an RFTools dimension no longer makes you lose all your stuff! Graves will now work properly there! (Keep inv is still on in main worlds)
Refined Storage is a mod that was put together very quickly as Applied energistics had not updated to 1.10.2. As such it is riddled with bugs. While we are not going to ban it be aware that it CAN cause problems sometimes. Occasionally drives go missing or networks cause a lot of lag and have to be turned off by staff. Please note that due to the nature of this and the fact that we have given warning in advance, we cannot spawn in anything that goes missing in this way. It is FAR too time consuming unfortunately.
RFTools has a very nice storage system with the storage scanner and RFTools control extends what can be done with it. Autocrafting, automatic processing in machines and stuff. It is a little complex because you have to programme it yourself (drag and drop) but worth trying something new!
Storage drawers are a very stable way to store items and work together with RFTools storage scanners to put stuff in and pull stuff out of them!
