It's been far too long since we have had any events so I went straight to Wikipedia and found something observed globally. I found Earth Day, You might turn off the lights at home on the 22nd of April and sit in candlelight, but we can't exactly turn off lights on the server easily. So, instead. It shall be a building competition! Build something that resembles earth day in-game!

You could build whatever you wanted to that fits into the theme, it could be a 2D map of the earth made out of wool or a 3D globe made out of clay or any other materials you wanted! Just make sure that if you build something you let us know that you have in this thread or we won't be able to see it! You should also tell us what town you live in so that we can find it easily! It doesn't need to be a map remember, as long as you can explain how it fits into the theme of "The Earth" then we will consider it an entry! There are no fixed prizes yet and they will most likely be decided when the winner is...

Some of you may have noticed that the 2.5.0 update became recommended late on Thursday night. Just letting you know that we plan on updating this weekend (Saturday hopefully) WITHOUT resetting anything. The map will stay the same, your towns will stay the same, mostly everything will stay the same. There are a lot of updated mods so there may or may not be some blocks that vanish if the mod author has changed their name or removed them. Usually if anything, its unimportant things anyway like half slabs or window panes, easy to remake :p

Two mods have been added - one is just to fix some recipes that always require a specific data value, like the IC2 quantum helmet not always crafting properly.

Thaumcraft inventory scanner - This is a pretty cool mod actually, it allows you to pick up your Thaumometer and hover it over items in your inventory to scan them! It means you don't need to drop everything onto the floor to scan it and it even works in chests so you can scan all your...

Signshop is the very powerful shop plugin we use to allow players to make their own shops on the server. Although it might be slightly more complicated than others it allows you to make great player owned shops without the clutter of having chests everywhere. One of the main benefits of Signshop is that you don't need to have the chest nearby! it can be anywhere (in the same world) So here are some of the basic signs that you will find useful

- Allows you to buy and sell to and from players without needing them to be online!
- Allows for safe transactions devoid of scamming
- Allows for more complicated shop types to allow you to do more than just Buy and Sell for money.
- Allows for donations where people can donate items to you without you paying them anything in return

The Buy sign allows you to SELL...

There have been a couple of changes made to the infinity server which you may or may not have noticed. At the moment some of these changes are not permanent, we are trailing them. If we like them, they will stay and if not then we will revert back to how they were before.

Trial changes
  • Mobs can still be toggled on and off in towns. This will stop them spawning in towns. Mobs that spawn outside the town and wander in are NOT affected by this setting.
  • There is currently no server shop to try and encourage people to setup their own shops instead. We might need to re-balance the economy slightly but we need time to assess how this is going.
Permanent changes
  • All recipe changes have nothing to do with us unless specifically stated. the FTB team often change recipes in hard mode to balance the game. We only change recipes when they are completely nescescary

Hey everybody. Just to let you know that the infinity server has been reset and updated and is now running the recommended version of FTB Infinity again. I know a lot of you will be happy with a rest but for those that are maybe a little sad then we are very sorry. At least you know that if you start now the fear of resetting won't come up for a long time. You could try improving on what you did last time or do something completely new. Anyway, Have fun!

The server is now running FTB Infinity Evolved (version: 2.4.2) up from FTB Infinity Evolved (version:2.3.5)

As promised in the linking accounts topic, we've linked the forum shoutbox with the minecraft servers.

To use this, you must first link your Minecraft account with your forum account using /link, for more info about that see the linking accounts topic. Once this is done you can now quite simply use /shout <message> from in-game to post a message to the forums shoutbox. The reverse is completely automatic, if you post a shout on the forums it'll automatically get broadcasted on the server.

Currently this is in Beta stage on the vanilla hub server and the Infinity server. You can now also link accounts from the Infinity server.

As for rules, this should be simple and straight-forward:

Any chatter in the shoutbox should not be related to one server only as the platform is cross-server. An exception is if there are issues and you need to...

Hey all, just got my e-mail to stop blocking this sites conformation e-mail!

So as you may know FTB Infinity is now on version 2.4.2 and if you let the client do its thing you may have already downloaded the new version and then had to down grade to play on our wonderful server.

With this new version and with the persistent lag issues effecting most of us, I would like to suggest a world restart. I would also like to request that current players get to keep whatever they can fit into their personal inventory if at all possible.

But that's just me, what do the staff and other players think?

The poll will run for 14 days from the 13th of March 2016.

We like to celebrate things on the server so as today is Shrove Tuesday, anybody who logs in to FTB infinity will get delicious free pancakes periodically!

Have a great day! Make some pancakes at home if you want. They are delicious! :)
