Hi,
as we all know, the current 1.6.4 FTB is just.. dead. All I see are people coming with "oh, it did not reset yet?" question :D

Thus I propose we update the pack and make a new map - by update I mean switch to Bevo's Tech Pack - possibly with all the extra mods (Spice of Life, Blood Magic, eventually Thaumcraft when it arrives).
It contains all the newest and greatest stuff - like Mekanism, new IC2, TE4, AE2, PneumaticCraft, Progressive Automation, Steve's Factory Manager, Twilight Forest, Botania and about lots more!

So, what do you think?

The current FTB server has been shut down as it has been gathering dust for some time now.

I've stickied this thread for now.

Get on with it already :ugly:
If the mod pack has some sort of protection (so I don't have to be jumpy and wary of other players all the time), I'm in. If not, I might play when there are no other players.
Or I don't know.

But yeah, nobody wants anything to do with 1.6.*.

Yeah so could we get a more difficult pack and reset the map. I really enjoyed the server untill I got almost everything.

If you are not familiar with Spice of Life - it basically forces you to eat different kinds of food, because if you keep eating the same food it uses its nutrition value (eventually down to 0%) ;)

Of course I would tweak the configs a bit in BTP - like take out some of the fancy worldgen, because you can find diamonds and gold above the ground. Such OPness!


Oh and in the talks of harder servers - Better than Wolves anybody? :ugly:

If we wanted a more difficult modded Minecraft, we COULD make a Crackpack server. I've been watching videos of the modpack myself and I must say that it interests me. We wouldn't be able to call it FTB anymore but it's worth a look. It uses the ATLauncher, and is simple enough to set up. You make a new "Instance" and select which modpack you want and you can select a couple options with it as well. Some things in the pack could lag a server - figuring these things out is easy and simple to fix and always has an alternate method to get the same result from it. Just saying, worth a look.

I am sorry but crackpack is 1.6.4 and nobody wants to play it anymore :P. Forge has been out for 1.7.2 since DECEMBER!!

Bevo's Tech Pack is on ATL as well btw.

So by the looks of things, we are going to go with Bevo's tech pack. I was testing it earlier today locally and it looks like its got a great set of mods.

I spent a good hour or so looking into OpenComputers, which is now my new favorite mod :D

Are we using the full pack or the mini pack?

Also I may not be able to play if this is very computer intensive due to my computer being a toaster.

We are hoping to go with the full version. However my worry is that not many people will be able to run that version well.

I can run it way better than I could the old pack. So I can run the full pack with max setting and get a stable frame rate. Also is it going to be amplifed terrain since I can not run that in vanila due to it being really differcult on my computer.

There's your problem there :ugly: I can't even run vanilla on max settings with my new setup, I mean I can but I get 15 FPS or lower.

Ohhhhh okay, that makes a lot more sense, I was kinda curious as to weather your PC was really a toaster or you were just trolling us with that lol. :4

With any luck, we might be able to release it this weekend. Just have to check a few things first.

I really hope that is the case since singleplayer does not do this pack justice.
