Did I just kill the server when I tried to log in? When I tried to log in the next time it was unreachable, and then when I finally got in, there were 0 in it

Like others mentioned I played as normal found and built my building as normal. Then very slowly added just a couple new special blocks here and there.

There is a command inside the game that has been a huge help for me. Pressing U. If you mouse over an item say one of the new Copper blocks and press U i will then bring up many recipes that can be done with that item.

I also have bookmarked: Feed The Beast Wiki Which has a number of videos as well as information on many of the mod items.

After I built my house I dug down as normal found some diamonds and eventually I looked up one of the new basic power generators set it down in my house and placed a couple other new machines right next to it. I didn't use wires for a long time as they will power the blocks right next to it without issue.

Just taking it nice and slow.

My wife is playing has the really tall obsidian tower and absolutely zero machines. shes only been playing with the Twilight and Myst books, but none of the industry stuff.

In the interest of preventing further problems before they get serious, I'd like minerduck to take a look at his place. It's currently dropping my FPS severly just looking at it, and being in it is worse. There is a portal from a portal gun in there which I think can be a problem, also a crystal chest which I've read can be problematic. So maybe look into doing something about that. And possibly turn off some machines. I don't know how rotary macerators and such that has to be on all the time affects the server.

I would start with the portal, I have a feeling it is to blame and I would even suggest removing portal guns from the server entirely unless people are very much against that.

I did not know about the U command, that was really helpful!

My personal experience of portal guns has been death, lost items, and accidentally ending up at someone else's portal! They are certainly 'experimental'. I think their best use is as decoration on a portal gun stand. Jetpacks and Myst books do a pretty good job replacing any benefit gained from Portal Guns.

At 2:45am, the FTB server reboots. I suspect you just picked a bad moment to try to join.

If any member thinks that any machine or device run by another member is contributing badly to the lag on the FTB server, please approach the member personally. This can be through a PM or in-game with a /tell message. If you cannot reach them, then inform one of the Division's Admin team in a like manner. Out of courtesy, please do not use these forums for that purpose. It is not the way that TOG handles such issues.

Got it, it must be possible to use the forum PM message system as well though?

Yes, that is why I mentioned PMs.
