I've played a bit of vanilla, but this FTB mod has so many new things in it I'm a bit lost.

I found some greatwood trees, but they seem to belong to people. Is it possible for me to plant greatwood trees in my home, is it wise, practical? Where can I get sapplings?

Failing greatwood trees maybe a few Sequoias or Merantis, basically big trees. Failing these I'll just have to settle for giant jungle trees.

Anyway, I'll see you guys in game. ciao!

There's a lot in Feed the Beast. Pick something to get familiar with. Find a machine or something that looks neat, and ask someone what mod it's part of. Then, start looking at that one mod.

Or, you can start out playing vanilla style for awhile.

Greatwoods are actually... not rare, but they very rarely drop saplings. If you found a cluster of 3 near a stone pillar with torches on it to the NE of spawn, you're at the base of the Lake Irimar Dam.

I suggest start off vanilla, get a building, build a furnince, and then add to it, feel out abit of tech, ie lets say Redpower, then add that to you home, then gradually increase it, put in some of this, some of that etc etc until you have all you need.

I had a tree house on the previous server I dabbled on so I would like to do that again. But I will obviously need sapplings. I will need to go on an adventure.

I've already got a crafting table, a furnace and enough wool to make a bed.

Is teleporting cheating? It feels like cheating? Very useful though.

If I see you in game Kaer I will pop over and see what I can help you with. If you can get on TS it makes explainations a little eaiser.
Start of doing what you know and you can slowly expand from there. I went from vanilla on day one straight to Tekkit with my son teaching me which lasted a couple of weeks and then into the TOG mindcrack server which blew my mind. Now I'm a tycoon and still on a steep learning curve. Both good and bad.

I think I might go into Thaumcraft first, but I like efficiency and I think there are some ways to get better efficiency out of ore, or something. I have several projects going at the same time.

Tree house,
mandatory mining
and "I'm starting a new life under the sea"

I've died so many times now...

My waypoint killed me on the mining world. I TP'd out from the portal room to my mining spot, out close to 2000 west I think, on the bedrock, and just fell out the bottom of the world. I had a nother waypoint on the surface so I TP'd there after respawning and could then TP down to bedrock... what the hell, no way to retrieve my gear?

I died once and there wasn't a body either. So lost the gear I had then too.

So I've lost gear people kindly gave me twice now. pretty frustrating.

Then I have another issue, it must be some network thing, everynow and then I mine a block, but then it reappears for a second before it registers as mined. Or sometimes I mine like 5 blocks and then they all appear again, and I can't pickup things.

Help! I am trying to get all the correct Mods installed to join everyone. I noticed that in the instructions it says that 8.2 is the most recent version of FTB, however the original post is out of date and I am looking at FTB 8.3.2, which also includes Mystcraft. So should I install 8.2 or 8.3.2? As for the other installs, are we using the latest versions, or do I need to grab older ones?

Thank you for any help.
