I'm keen as. I assume in the 'spirit' of fair play, no one will be allowed to wear invulnerable (rubber) boots? My arms and armour are fairly non existant, but I'm sure I can help whoop its butt with an iron sword right?


As for times available... that's a bit trickier. I'll let the community decide and attend if I can. My schedule is too changeable right now, but mid-late evening NZ time is best.

Ah ha ha. Nice one.


My quarry pit is so large you deserve to fall in if you don't see it =)

But then, it's not a quarry outside the city, so probably nothing to worry about =)

Can you quarry in the nether too? I was thinking about going there and setting one up, what's the etiquette involved for placement when quarrying in other worlds/dimensions?

Default FTB: The Problem? with rubber boots.

These obviously do not work as intended.

I mentioned this at the time to others in game when I did some testing a couple of days ago, but the rubber boots do not just greatly reduce fall damage. They greatly reduce all damage. I have tested this and know for sure they make you immune to:

Drowning, starving, all monsters in the overworld, lava and creeper explosions at point-blank.

All this, and they don't degrade so they last forever.

So, the question is: Should we be using them? I was happy being able to jump down my pit to bedrock. It's fun. I'm not so sure I'm happy being invulnerable because of a few pieces of rubber. (Ok, I'm ecstatic about it, but it really is gaining an unfair advantage.)

I mean, they probably work better by themselves than some hugely complicated to craft full set of powered armour.

Lets discuss so then if everyone agrees they are legit, I'll use them and enjoy the ride guilt-free.

Oddly, I'm actually in favour of house-ruling them out, so there is actually a reason to persue other (better) armours. However, while others are using them, I sure am too.

I'm suffering a dichotomy of opinion here, help me guys and gals

You are correct, they aren't working as intended (Rubber Boots - FTB wiki). However this is not a problem unique to our server, others are experiencing it too. It seems that instead of reducing fall damage by a factor of 8 it does so for ALL damage. I had mentioned they stopped you from drowning somewhere, I guess this explains why.

If they are that overpowered I'd say they should not be allowed. Personally I don't use them anyway as I assumed I would get more armor from normal boots (guess I was wrong )

Looking around, it might be a much better idea to craft the long fall boots. Hard to make but considering the benefit, it makes more sense than 6 rubber and 1 wool which is comparatively super cheap and easy anyway.

Hopefully we will be updating the FTB server soon. Then who will know what they will do.

While it is not perfect, I have found that an iron chestplate has served me well. Up to a personal best of 20 XP levels so far.
