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.

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.

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!

FTB and Java 8

I know many of us have been playing on the FTB server.

DO NOT UPDATE TO JAVA8!! Unless you want to have to manually patch the FTB files to run minecraft.

Here is the link on how to fix FTB so it will launch, if you have already or want to do this update.

Problems with Runecraft

Server was having major issues with crashing on Thursday. And the problem was something in the Runecraft data file. The only solution I have been able to find is to remove the existing file and let it create a new one from scratch. This does mean that all teleports, and Runecraft enchantments have to be recreated.

And because I know flight is really important to most people, if you lost flight ask Dragon for some diamond blocks.  He can give you 5 to recreate the flight rune.

But I cannot do anything about teleporters.  Waypoints are still in existance, but teleports have to be recreated. Sorry.

Fancy is rebuilt.

So I took fancy down today for a full backup, then are rebuild fresh.

This does mean any runecraft stuff will have to be reset including teleproters.  If you are a long ways away from where you need to build a WP/TP combo let staff know and we can teleport you there. Please look up coords on dynmap before asking for teleport.

If you run into any issues please let a staff member know.

Moving The Land to the new server install

So I have been dealing with a few things in real life, and that has caused me to put off moving to the new server install, and rethink a few things.  I am going to shutdown the Fancy server on Monday April 28th, probably for a few hours, and completly rebuild it from scratch.  Then get all the maps we are keeping installed and running.  I will post updates if this is going to change at all.

So, server downtime Monday April 28th, probably several hours of ups and downs.

UPDATE:   This is being delayed until Tuesday.  I have a migraine this morning.
