FTB Infinity Expert Mode OFF

The FTB server has had the 'Expert Mode' turned off. After 5 days of trying to struggle through the new gamemode on FTB Infinity Evolved, it has been disabled. The difficulty has been upped to 'Hard' so say hello to invisible spiders and the lot. It was a valiant effort to work through Expert Mode but it was nothing but a frustrating and constant struggle to try and do or make anything and just made the game less fun overall.

Infinity Evolved 2.1.2

Alright, the new Infinity Evolved server is online. New Map, New Inventories, New Mode. Set your FTB Launchers to version 2.1.2 and connect just the same as before.

I have setup a spawn building for people to hide out in at night while getting started, and marked the spawn border around that.

FTB 'Expert Mode' is enabled, so check the book icon to the left of your inventory screen for how to get started and advance through the unlocks.


FTB Infinity Evolved?

Heeeeeeeey minecrafters!!

Things sure have been quiet around here, you must have all been outside, or at least playing some other games. Well the FTB team sure didn't take any time away and have been mad updating our beloved game with tons new features. They have released Infinity Evolved which introduces some cool new features and even some great tools for the admins!

I was just going to run the normal update to the new version, but there was some chatter of people thinking it would be a great time to Reset the world, take advantage of the new features, and even enable Hard Mode. I have no problem with this, our world has been plagued with troubles, remember we did start Infinity when it was a baby modpack. It does seem like a great point to do a purge.

So before I go and blow it all away, I will put it to you, our wonderful player base. What do you want to do?
So follow the link above (or here) and read up on all the changes and the 'Hard Mode' and cast your opinion here!

POLL IS ON THE SIDEBAR ==============================================================>
Poll closes Sunday 8th 11:59pm PST so I can tell people at PDXLan this weekend. Poll result will be actioned on Monday the 9th!
If we do go with a map reset, I will bundle up the current version and put it for download, beware it is about 9GB.

Fancy server will also be getting some love next week hopefully. More research required first to be sure.

Infinity updated 1.9.0

Man, I almost can't keep up. Just logged out of checking the upgrade if FTB Infinity server to 1.9.0. It is online and operational, let me know if anything is wacky.

Also Mystcraft required a reset again due to DimensionID conflict. Have I mentioned that you should not store anything you can't go on without in any Mystcraft Ages? Because you shouldn't.

Infinity Updated.

These seem to be quite frequent, so you should all know the drill.  Infinity server has been updated to version 1.7.0 be sure to change your client setting on your next launch.
Also the lag has been eliminated, everybody blame and harass Rondon56 and please don't use excessive amounts of Export Busses with Crafting Cards.
Also 2, MystCraft was cleared 100% this time, so new books should be able to be created again, but please be sparing with them the issues creep up when we get more than 100 Mystworlds.

I will be looking at Updating FANCY server next, I found that RuneCraft is being developed again so we will see what we can do.

Infinity updated!


If you have tried to launch Infinity in the last day, you most likely have been prompted to update to 1.4.1, and unlike most postings where we ask you to wait we are here to tell you to Go Ahead! The server has been updated to 1.4.1 as well and everything seem to be good to go.

FTB Updated! Welcome to Infinity.

We have updated the FTB server to the Infinity pack. The current version is 1.3.4 and you do not need to do anything special in the launcher to get in.

Because of many plugin updates and the root minecraft version change to 1.7.10 the map and inventories did not get to transfer to the new Infinity. This does mean though name changes are fully supported on the FTB server now. If you would like the old Monster map just let us know we can get it too you.

Display name changes are LIVE!

Mojang released name changes this morning for those who were never quite satisfied with their original selection. You can go change your name at https://account.mojang.com/me

Fancy and Skyblock should be Immune to a name change, but if you are having any trouble let an Admin or Mod know.
FTB Monster is going to have all kinds of troubles since it operates on a Minecraft version before all the name change code modifications happened. You will need to contact an Admin to have your new name added to the Whitelist to start with.

MouseLAN! Feb 27-March 1

Wellllllllllll now! Who is ready for more LAN? Lets get together and play some games! Artemas was a bunch of fun last time, and there is talk of people wanting to play some Chivalry. Also Homeworld Remastered will be out just before we begin, some of that will surely be played as well. And of course lots of Minecraft! Maybe we will try out the PAX South Challenge Map.

MOUSELAN 12/5-12/7

Figure since I mentioned it in the previous two postings I should make an actual posting  about it, The next MouseLAN is happening on December 5-7.  As mentioned we will be kicking it off on Friday by swapping out the server Motherboard and CPU to our new Hottness. Should bring up the TPS on FTB Monster and make everything run nicer! (not to mention save mouse some power) Lets also try and get some Artemis to happen, that was a good time before (Rondon56 bring your projector?).

New server hardware on its way! aka Server Downtime

Well order is in, server hardware is on its way to SmileyMouse's house.  As expected the server will have to come offline to swap in the new parts.  We will take it offline first thing at MouseLan on Friday 12/5 say around 6-7pm. Just  watch for the site and IRC to go down/come back online and all will be well, or you can attend MouseLan and see it all happen live!


Server Upgrade!

Anyone who has been playing on the new FTB server knows that the TPS is low usually because Monster is a Beast (ha) and takes up much of the cpu resources.  Our grand admin Glguy has done investigations and we have determined that a CPU upgrade is in order, which will also require a new motherboard (of course).  Many of our users have expressed interest in assisting with any upgrade costs and we absolutely appreciate it!  Our glorious server owner has graciously offered to front the cost of this upgrade and put in half the funds himself.  This just leaves it up to us to gather the other half!  We are getting a good combo deal from Tiger Direct here which at time of posting and a i7-4790K and Gigabyte Z97 Motherboard, purchase total is $399.98.  This means we are looking to collect a total of $200 from anyone who can donate to the upgrade.  SmileyMouse is heading the collection, so contact him for options.  We are collecting until MouseLan on 12/5 so PayPal or Cash will be totally acceptable.

Hooray for more TPS!
