Feed the Beast : Testing on port 25565
Just running a Feed the Beast server in place of Sanctuary for a day or so. The Admin team is doing some testing with the possibility of running a FTB server for the Division. A long way to go before we can tell if it will be plausible, so no promises at this point, but we will keep you informed if we make any progress :)

Looking at things like lag and plugins ...

More info plz! :D

Can we join this in testing or does this mean the server is unavailable? Who's deciding what mods you guys are looking at? Could you post some details of what the team is thinking so the community can have a better idea of plans?

- I know it's really early days, would love it if you guys could keep us posted as to the what and why aswell as when.. .

Hey Espesch, all welcome to join on, but remember the map will go offline sometimes as different settings are tested. Could defintely use some players to test lag etc ...

The main mod we are considering with FTB is Mo Creatures, but put up any suggestions that don't make the server break :)

Remember, no promises, but giving it a go anyway ....

Will definitely keep everyone up to date.... really still learning the basics of FTB servers.

Don't get too involved in construction at this stage, as the map will change !

The reason we are trying Feed the Beast was ongoing interest in a Tekkit style server. We wanted to test out something new and exciting for the Division.

Feed the Beast uses a seperate launcher, so will not affect your normal Minecraft.

Run the Feed the Beast Launcher when trying to join the Server, not the Minecraft launcher.

Feed the Beast homepage -

Feed the Beast

You do not open Minecraft at all to join the Server, just run the Feed the Beast launcher from your desktop.

Also create a user profile in the launcher, which is basically your Minecraft name.

Thanks Henri!

Appreciate the angle here from admin, Sanctuary has been slow lately and we've had to look elsewhere to play on heavy modded servers before.

Mo' Creatures is great, I really hope that's something we can add. It does make the world feel much more alive and I could do with some more animals to collect and herd, always.

Just what Obsi needs, "real" horses - it will make them harder to kill and skewer atleast :p

With the introduction of automated type farming and more mats and refining, could we think about an economy plugin to get some trade and RP business happening?

Updating FTB now, very handy little package with the launcher. Will try get on some time this weekend for a poke around and tests.

We have a pretty cool plan, including a permanent 'protected' spawn village of around 512x512, and maybe a 512x512 protected rural area, and regular reset of the outer area to keep the map fresh. That will also keep major construction nice and close to spawn, rather than everyone going off in their own direction.

I will check out economy mods, but if you see anything suitable post it up.

First stage was seeing if FTB would actually work properly, a good start, then slowly add, test, add, test while keeping the whole thing stable and playable.

Yeah I've been a big fan of Mo's for a long time. Not just for the horses, but that is a big drawcard for me :)

There's another horse mod I like too, simply horses, that has carts, which is cool (they have an inventory!) - but she's in the process of updating so carts have been removed and it's only single player at the moment anyway.

FTB hates me.... Been trying to get it going for about 2 hours now.... it's just not happening :(
