We have now been testing a FTB server for around a month and it has been a lot of fun. It is now obvious that such a world is a suitable permanent replacement for the creative Sanctuary world. However FTB has faults. One possible solution is to shift to a MindCrack server instead. That is more up-to-date and reliable (we think), has many of the same features as FTB and may end up having a longer life.
However, we will need to develop a new world for it with its new ores (at least the ones we all like). In order to minimise the inconvience to you for all the work you have done testing FTB, we are going to paste the FTB world's city into the future Mindcrack world. For this reason, the following is the timetable:
Using the present MindCrack server and client, run the FTB world. This means that only features relevant to MindCrack will be useable. Players need to
SAT, 5pm AEDST:
- move any belongings into the city from any other part of any world or any other dimension
- minimise the amount of machinery in the city (lag issues)
- minimise the amount of piping in the city (lag issues)
- stop quarries in the city and cap them.
We will open the new MindCrack world and server. This will include
- the world regenerated for MindCrack resources
- the FTB city will be retained but we will expect less machinery there
- MindCrack reoptimised with just what mods we decide we want
- a new Nether and End
- a new Twilight World
- new Myst world/s
- Will use the FTB Mindcrack client plus the following client mods
- Mo's Creatures
- Additional Pipes
for instructions on how to install and run the mod pack etc on your PC.
In the new world, players can wander around and set up outside the city. We may shift and set up a new spawn site slightly away from the heavily industrial FTB city (which we want to become less industrial).
We will also give you a more definite set of rules. These will still restrict usage of things like quarries but will endeavour to still give you a lot of freedom to enjoy the modpack. We will add the rules when finalised but some changes may be made to the FTB city by the Admin team in the coming week.
