The old FTB world/Mindcrack server is now shutdown. Only admin will have access to the new world before 5pm.

See you then.

Countdown is on!!! In fact 2 coutdowns are on, I'm currently enjoying the Hottest 100 while counting down to the official opening of the Mindcrack server. So excited! And the best part? It's still super early over here in WA so I can enjoy a few hours of MC before heading out for some Australia Day festivities! What a great day this is turning out to be!

Update from my steam blowing adventures on PS2 while waiting for Mindcrack:

1) Toggers fought a beautifully vicious fight on many fronts, very often 2 against 1.
2) Dewey crashed into a cliff once because he swore he saw a creeper down low at 6 oclock while flying; turns out it was an enemy vehicle (sunderer) that was in free fall after jumping off a cliff, and the camo made it look that way.
3) Dewey crashed into another player once because of ... well just because. I wasn't looking okay?

4) Best damn fight I've ever had with toggers on my wingtips. The end dragon was atrociously frustrating

And finally

5) I am contemplating, with the new mod, a nice trophy area with glowing blocks for the winners of various contests Tog has been involved in...more on that later (and honorable mentions)

Default Mo'Creatures

We've added this to the FTB server, so I thought I'd give people a quick rundown, as it includes some friendly and some dangerous mobs.

The official Mo Creatures site is here:
[1.4.7] Mo' Creatures - v4.5.1 with Elephants, Mammoths, Komodo Dragons, more ostriches, better Jellyfish! more fairy horses - Minecraft Forum - Which gives you information on what the animals are, how to tame/breed them and what items they will drop etc.

There is also a Mo Creatures Wiki here - Dr. Zhark Mobs Wiki

Because Mo Creatures has a *LOT* of animals, we're not including them all on our server. Some animals and mobs will also spawn more than others.

I'll run through some of the mobs that you'll need to be aware of.

Animals you can ride
Horses, Flying Horses, Dolphins, Komodo Dragons

Animals that will attack you if you attack them or you get too close
Bears, Foxes, Jellyfish

Animals that will attack you if they see you
Komodo Dragons, Sharks, Big Cats (Lions/Panthers etc.), Rats, Polar Bears, Scorpion, Wraith, Werewolves.


So,.... the water is no longer always safe.... there may be sharks and jellyfish in the water. Sharks and Dolphins look similar so be careful. Sharks have a slanted nose, dolphins make dolphin squeaks.

Werewolves need to be killed with a gold sword (other swords need a lot of hits to do it)...


(I'll update this as I think of more)

Default New TOG Mindcrack world is open

The new Mindcrack world is open. You might find that it looks rather familiar.

The new world is the "same" as the old FTB one but regenerated for the Mindcraft mods. The chunks for the city have been cut'n'paste in so you should have your plot. The Nether and End and Twilight World have all been regenerated. There are no Myst worlds yet.

See http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...ml#post3756761 for the server's rules.

See http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...ck-server.html for help setting up your client.

See http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...creatures.html for advice on some of the new mobs, the dangers and advantages they present. For now, players are limited to taming 10 12 animals in total.

Various items from your old FTB server will no longer work, eg. your portal guns. Likewise, some recipes may have changed slightly from the FTB ones.

An initial map of the world around the city is at http://tog.swoit.as/minecraft/mcmap/...rack_spawn.png

Enjoy,

Sorontar

Finally a use for Gold Swords!

(other than getting a zombie pigman skin and freaking out players in the overworld before the pigmen could travel through the portals)
