The server is now running FTB Infinity Evolved (version: 2.3.5) up from FTB Infinity Evolved (version:2.2.2)

We believe there isn't much that will have been broken in the update but if you find anything please let us know! As usual there will probably be some broken recipes because the FTB team are good at screwing them up when they update. If you find any broken recipes let any of the staff know and they can pass it on to me or tell me directly on the server or here on the forums.

Anything else that you notice that you think is wrong or out of place then as above, just let us know and we will try to fix it as quickly as possible.

PS - Eidel deserves a big thank you for updating the server. He updates us practically every time because i have TERRIBLE internet speeds and it would take a week if i did it (I'd also have to learn how to again because its been so long xD)

So i've put a lot of work into keeping loaded chunks down recently to keep the server performance high but Here's is what you can do.

Each player has 3 chunkloading tickets. A ticket can load UP TO 4 chunks and no more.
Each thing you have that naturally loads chunks will be assigned one of your tickets, for example pumps and quarries. Here's the limitations of the most common ones

  • Ender Quarries - Only ever load 2 chunks at a time (No maximum size)
  • Buildcraft quarries - Can load no more than 4 chunks at once, will start acting funny if you try to make them load more than 4! (maximum size = 4 chunks)
  • Pumps - Normally only load the chunk they are in.
  • Anything else that loads chunks should load them as long as it doesn't try to load more than 4.
As I said just above, each player has only 3 tickets meaning that if you have 2 quarries and a pump, then any other chunks that you try to force load with blocks aren't going to work and may affect your...

Hey modders

Draconic Evolution added a new power generation called the Draconic Reactor, and... it... is... AWESOME !!!!!

But.... yes, there is a but here, it is very very dangerous, a single reactor with full fuel has the potential to destroy your entire base (see video below), and with this in mind we feel it prudent to remind all of you that there are no refunds / replacement / roll backs of your towns or items if you blow one of these up in your base.

with that said, enjoy the newest addition to the draconic evolution

As it is thanksgiving today then we thought we would run an event just for fun! We have set up a Turkey Hunt on the server and it is ready to go. It needs 4 to 8 players at once so maybe tonight when it is a little busier we will run a few games and depending on how popular it is and if not many people get a chance to join we might run over into tomorrow too since there will be more people around on the Friday. The mini game works best with the server resource pack. As well as some textures there are some sound effects added by it so make sure you hit accept when it prompts you to download it!

Shoutout to Isis_Cruix who made the turkey texture! Thanks! it looks amazing lol!

The winner of each game gets to choose from 3 prizes - In-game money, More claims for their town or 5 blocks of steel.

The overall winner of the event is the player who kills the most turkeys. We are taking note of totals from each game. The overall winner will get...

For those of you unaware of the world around you a lot has happened in the past few hours involving a massive destructive force within Paris, France. While i will not go into detail here, you are free to search the details on your own due to their graphic nature. We at MineVortex encourage the international player base that we have to be supportive of France or any players you know that live in the area.

Below are some services that if you are able to donate to:
International Federation of Red Cross
French Secours Populaire

Like myself and Unilauh, instead of monitary donations we donate blood and plasma.
USA blood donation
UK blood donation
French blood donation

For any...

The FTB team have released version 2.1.2 of FTB as reccomended today. Just a quick post to let everybody know that at some point either today or tomorrow we will be updating. This is just a minor update and apart from having to change version in your launcher, nothing will be different. I believe the update is just tweaking a few little bugs that the FTB team have discovered from releasing Infinity Evolved. Updating will probably take half an hour to an hour (Although we will defenetely not rush it) so if you happen to see the server down, check the forums. We might be updating. Thanks again!

As a massive thanks to all the staff that keep the server running, I am pleased to issue a set of shiny staff badges. May your sheriff's badge forever help you in your duties!

Please note that badges are held in with a pin rather than a clip so when you put them on in the mornings be careful not to stab yourselves.

Here are the two badges being modelled by HunterAshh and CLASnipe which you will see around the server from now on!

Thank you to all the staff for all their hard work keeping the server running smoothly!

So, some of you might be glad to hear that I have completely revamped donations including, introducing some brand new perks.

If you want to have a look at the list and see the changes then you can head on over to the donation store at donate.minevortex.com/ranks and take a look around. This will also let you see what you have access to as a donator if you already are one! (love you :p)

I would also just like to say a massive thanks to anybody who has donated to the server and if anybody has any ideas for donations or perks then I would love to hear suggestions! I would really like to improve them wherever possible.

Finally, just to let you know that the "upgrade your rank" section on the store has been removed. Now, instead of having it in a separate category, it is all under the "Ranks" section. If you purchase a rank then the cost of that rank is taken off the price of all future ranks for you, meaning that it will just...
