    Ahh cheers Aveege. Yeah, the mod is insanely popular for barrels, and yet, despite having a really efficient processing chain, there's not the same level of detail I can find about it. I think it's the slowness of the final step and the automation part that people must have a problem with. I'll likely leave the distribution of stacks inside the crystalliser as a manual step for the time being (perhaps always)

    Yeah its that last stage that kills it for people i think. Ive seen pics on reddit of people using crystallizer towers with 5 routers attached to bottom each set to put into a different slot. But 5 routers per tower, and then most do a tower per ore type, well that is some expensive stuff lol.

    The author of the mod wanted to make sure automation required a lot of work and resources. My set up was manual except for the water buckets. routers are the only way to fill crystallizers correctly.

    Epic lag playing FTB

    I've just started playing FTB, use to play Tekkit a lot.
    I seem to have constant lag issues that hit every now and then... It seems a bit random.

    My rig is pretty decent so I very much doubt it's that (AlienWare Aurora R3, with a few tweaks), Java is up to date - tried x86 and x64 versions, nothing seems to help.

    Does anyone have an idea of what could cause it?

    Alienware actualy seems to hate FTB, Bazz had similar issues, he might be able to help, but I have heard of a few issues with alienware pc's not liking the mods in ftb.

    are you giving ftb say 2 or 3 gig of ram to use?

    4 Gigs of RAM just for FTB.
    It's a beast of a machine but about every minute or two it just completely stops when playing FTB :(

    Tekkit and other mod packs seem to work with any issues, which sucks because I preffer FTB.

    Some things I can think of;


    • Would you think it's the server or the client that is the problem?
    • Can the client be run on a separate machine for testing purposes?
    • Have you looked at how much memory is used when running?
    • When the computer slows down, is the harddrives churning? (memory running out and being cached to disk)
    • Does it seem like the world tick rate keeps up but the graphics lags or is the entire game slowing down? (are mobs and moving equipment jumping around or just moving slowly?)
    • Are large amounts of errors being logged?
    • Is it possible to disable mods and then enable them one by one to see when the problem starts again?
    • Do you have loops in IC2 power lines?
    • When it stops are you moving so new environments are being loaded or does it also happen while perfectly stationary?

    Do you have ip v6 enabled? If so kill it. For whatever reason (and as far as I know it is not fixed) Java hates ipv6 if it is not the active connection. The result is freezes.

    So what is different between FTB modpacks?

    I imagine that some of you are wondering what is different between the FTB modpacks. A good reference is the wiki at Feed The Beast Wiki . It has separate pages for each modpack which list which mods they include.

    Of course, there is no harm to trying each of them in single player or joining the FTB-based allied servers that are starting in the Division and trying whatever version they are using.

    For instance,

    MindCrack Pack - Feed The Beast Wiki
    Feed The Beast Ultimate Pack - Feed The Beast Wiki
    Magic World - Feed The Beast Wiki

    Sorry, I moved this to the FTB folder then realised that it may not be FTB specific. Is it?

    We closed the ftb server down as our host wasn't available to us any more.

    We now have 2 options for ftb servers for you to play on - you'll find sub forums for them in the main forum. "Phoenix" or "Misnik's server" - depending on which flavour you'd like for your ftb :D
