Today we talk about creating a Private Community Server Like Forgecraft. (Now you know I'm insane)
So the members that been with us for a long time and we call family and you know who you are and sorry if others get the wrong impression. Are you tired of the lag? Are you tired of the limited mods? Are you tired of world borders? Are you tired of limited features? Are you tired of being told what to do?
Then guess what this might be a turning point for us.
Check this video out and or keep reading below!:::
The idea is we make a private community server. We start off at 0,0 and we find places we like to live. We team up or don't team up whatever you like. I know many of you already love teaming up and how cool would it be if we all lived near spawn say within 500 blocks away some further some closer and started to do community projects near spawn. Like a massive Fusion Reactor where we can share power for all those who want it so they can do things they enjoy instead?
What about big mana farm or a tree farm etc. Why not do some of these at each others places and connect them create a community/city where we live and share certain resources or all our resources etc.
The idea of this server is to be a family. People who enjoy being part of a community even I the most outcast player love helping others proving things sharing etc. I think it be amazing we take some of our lead designers and our lead technicians and mix our talent!
Things we can do to share our work:
Monthly Map Release Around Our Bases
Sharing the pack with others so people can still play single player or make their own server
Much Much More!
Worried about your work that you put into this server? You don't have to join and if you do join we are here to help you! We are not hear you leave you behind!
Update: Servers are back and functioning 100% again. Looks like the install of the new cable was successful and no packet loss.
Right now the fiber cables have been cut. Last night, a car hit one of the poles along the BHS/MTL via the North route, damaging the optical fiber cable: 2 of the 3 pairs of cables are down. The 3rd one, to Level 3, is still UP.
We’ve identified where the incident happened and the maintenance teams are currently working to feed a new 96 FO cable at 300m. This will take 12 hours.
They had now disabled the former connection and were just waiting for the new line to be put in and connected.
We have released a new version of Minecraft 1.8, called 1.8.5, which is now available for download in your launcher. This release fixes a few reported security issues, in addition to some other bug fixes.
This version is fully compatible with all previous 1.8 versions, but it is still highly recommend to update to 1.8.5 as soon as possible.
[Bug MC-79632] – Phantom Custom Player in Scoreboard / UUIDs of non-player entities on scoreboards truncated after relog
[Bug MC-75630] – Exploit with signs and command blocks
[Bug MC-80478] – Better server validation for movement packets
[Bug MC-80479] – Invalid beacon effects are not validated
[Bug MC-80480] – Certain attribute values are not bound
Update 6 video is out today. We talk about the removal of Blood Magic and Draconic Evolution. We know this has impacted a few of our players and and a few players are angry with us and we do apologize. We also like to thank the ones that have lost things and had backed us up no matter what costs it had on them. You were the ones who made the transition better for me.
We don't see any reason to butcher anything from here on out. These are growing pains and normal operations on a server that sadly did not have rigorous testing. There might be things that might be over powered in this and that mod but at least we know a lot more about these mods and have a lot less to need to be worried about and keep an eye on people.
Before you vote please take the time to read the feedback within the thread. Please note that my post is my opinion and my experience of the mod.
So it looks like majority of people agree that we should ban automated Mining. Now there is still talk about ore bushes. I'm not going to intervene in it I will wait for people to talk it out with each other and decide what they want over the next few days.
Sadly it's not all kittens and puppies today. We need to talk about the future of Draconic Evolution.... This mod was brought to us by someone who said it take about 3 weeks to do certain tasks in this mod. It took us a week to hit some the most over powering features if not a couple of days.
Teleports - No costs, Free teleports, cheap as hell. But it does bring the community together.
Power Storage - 2.something Trillion of energy storage.. Anyone can make it within their first day of playing as long they have a jetpack... Kills all storage in all the other mods.
Most Powerful armor in the game. Sure many mods add invulnerability but this is one step off from having /op.
Most Powerful weapons in the game.. Top weapon 25x25 AOE 80 Damage + 30% of the mobs health of damage.
Most Powerful pick in the game. Instant yes Instant break faster then creative break even. Can do 9x9 clearly that is illegal but even 3x3 you can run one side the world to the other with a fast jetpack and mine it within 3-5 Minutes. Yes 72,000 blocks within 5 minutes.
I can go on and on but I think you are getting the point...
Today is a pretty big day for the future of our Server. I think it's time to finally retire Mining Automation on the server. There is so many reasons why but I think the biggest is there is just no need for it. Why we throwing away our tools and using automated mining to begin with. This is Minecraft? We mined for years with nothing but diamond tools and 0 enchants. We have 3x3 Hammers and so many cool things you can do via mining by hand that there is just no reason to go back to automated mining.
We are not creating 1000's of solar panels to power something silly or stupid. We are not using GregTech. So there is just no reason for it. They create lag, they promote afking play and no one ever actually plays and their just devastating to the economy and lands.
So I propose a full ban on all Automated Mining from Magic mods to Tech mods as well as a ban on Mining that does anything past a 3x3 size. Tinkers is a great fun mod that has such crazy customization. I don't see why one would just play up a magic tree just for a pick and put the exact same enchants as everyone else. There is no balancing at all.
So what do you guys think? Will you learn to give up your old ways and come back to Minecraft?
Also what should we do about Ore Bushes? They are actually turning into the number 1 automated Mining on the server with a few people fully automating the bushes. Just want to hear your opinions!
Good news everyone! The server should be launching around 12-14 Hours from this post. I think everything should be ready and set. There is always a possible for something to go wrong but we think we are ready and it's worth giving it a try.
Please Get your VIP / Applications done now! Since when the server launches I will be busy playing and recording!
I'm super tired and lacking sleep but I think it has been worth it for you guys!
