As a little thank you to Sped, who has been a fantastic influence for this community I'm hosting an event dedicated entirely to him! (Ooohhh lucky).
From now until Sunday, Discount code I<3Sped will give you a 5% discount on our store
The main event, Spot the Sped! 16 Sped statues have taken over spawn, each one of them has a quote from sped (It took me ages fishing through skype to find some good ones, But there are some really good ones in there...)
This is what they look like, to avoid any confusion. You can trigger the quote by stepping on the pressure plates located nearby each sped!
Each time you visit one, it will get logged that you have found it. Anybody who finds 8/16 statues will get an extra 5% off any purchase in the store (Yes, it does stack with the I<3Sped code) and anybody who finds all 16 will get an extra 10% code.
As all things come to an end, so must my career at TekkitCraft/MineVortex. For those of you who don't know me, which is likely due to my inactivity, I was the Network server & service manager which means I mostly handled the back-end of things and ensured smooth operation of everything.
It's been nearly five years now, which is fairly heavy considering that's 25% of my life that I've spent with this community so this decision to go wasn't made in a day either. I've lost interest in Minecraft a while ago but still continued to work the server magic as that still interested me but now due to university and work I have no more time to maintain any of it. So instead of hoarding my position I want to pass it on to the people who I know will do a good job of it.
HunterAshh will take over the website and forums.
Eidelwild will take over the Linux and treasury side of things.
Callum will take over the server management.
As you are by now aware we have switched to the Resonant Rise 3 modpack. So voting on the old Infinity sites will no longer get you your money. Like before typing /vote in game will bring up the list of sites you can use. Click on the links and hit yes when asked if your sure you want to open it and your hard earned cash is just a vote site away. Now you might be asking what if I get attacked by a large band of rabid weasels and am unable to get online during my stay at the hospital? What is to become of my town? You can vote using the links I am providing here and your votes will be saved. Later when you are able to get on all your money will be waiting for you. Your town is safe, your a hero to all and Bob's your uncle. So vote early, vote often, vote now!!
MineVortex is pleased to announce a new feature coming along with our new mod pack, Apartments! That's right apartment. We now have housing available for rent for the low cost of $10 per day. The rooms are large and spacious and are yours to change internally as you see fit once you rent them. Need more storage? Add some chests. Want to craft? Add a workbench. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
1: How do I get there? By typing ./warp Housing you will be sent to the rental area
2: How do I rent a apartment? Simply click the sign with money in your account and it's yours. You can add more days by clicking the sign the number of days you desire.
Hi everybody. I'm back from my summer job (i have been for a while actually but I've been busy with stuff like starting back at uni and finding a weekend job and have taken my cub scouts away camping for 2 of the past 4 weekends. Yeah, its been busy)
Back to the point, this post is about new, yes new, donator perks. I've been trying to come up with some neat stuff for you guys that adds a little extra into the game and i think (hope) that you are going to like them. I have a couple up my sleeve but one that I'm really excited about showing off.
Not satisfied with all the decorations added by Decocraft i thought it would be cool to add more donator only ones too. Using player heads and a sneaky re-texturing method i've come up with a BUNCH of custom decorations that you will be able to spawn in and use to decorate your land (or yourself if you feel so inclined because you can wear them all...
As FTB Infinity v2.6.0 is now recommended we will be updating to it on tuesday 16/08 at 4:00 CET/GMT. There will be no map reset so you'll be able to keep all of your items. That is, unless something goes horribly wrong.
The server will be down at that time and you'll need to switch to the recommended FTB Infinity version to connect after the update.
When and if FTB Infinity updates beyond v2.6.0 we will reset the map as it is getting quite old by now.
As I did some nostalgic digging around with the waybackmachine to find our old wiki info I stumbled upon a rather neat mail Fallout sent in 2014 informing our playerbase about our rename from TekkitCraft to MineVortex. As I rather liked the lay-out I decided to alter our forum mail system to also start sending mails in that lay-out rather than the default blue XenForo format.
Currently only the conversation reply mail is complete. The rest will follow shortly.
Here's a bit of an example mail as it shows in GMail. As Hotmail is literally worse than Hitler when it comes to respecting HTML and CSS it won't look quite as neat but I've managed to make it not horrible.
As a comparison, here's an old mail:
Perhaps not a very important update but it gives a neater feeling.
