okay it should be working now if you'd like to test it out :)

 

I had thought I got it added yesterday but it turns out it's one of the few you actually have to unzip so it wasn't being picked up before.

I double verified this afternoon and it's listed under the datapacks command now so should be working.

 

let me know if there's any issues with it (Y)

Thanks. Seems to be working OK, it's not perfect but better than anything I've cobbled together in Vanilla before now. I really wish they would implement something like the old Buildcraft pipes.

I know, and it's really annoying. Using them in anything even vaguely compact is impossible.

agreed. hoppers, detectors, and minecarts aren't the greatest solution.

 

Buildcraft pipes were okay but had their own downfalls (though in a way that made them so they weren't too overpowered either)

my favorite sorting system was from the Red Power 2 mod with the pneumatic tube system; it was extremely versatile

so guys. This hosting service we have now has a couple interesting features.

 

They have an instance manager and modpack support for Feed the Beast packs and that. It allows creating multiple instances with different setups/maps and switching between them. What would you guys think if we switched things up every now and then and planned like a skyblock weekend sometime or something?

 

could help draw some more players if we have special events like that every now and then.

Just so I'm clear, we can put the current world on hold, run a separate world for a special event for a few days/weeks, then go back to the current world when the event is over?

 

I wouldn't mind switching to a FtB pack for a while, to be honest Vanilla does get a bit stale after a while and the extra mechanics some of the better/bigger packs bring does spice things up.

 

Could be interesting.

yep that's exactly how it should work.

 

I do miss the old modding community; a lot of the best mods never updated past 1.12.2 :/

account merging isn't the end of the world though; I was afraid the article was about ending the java edition development or moving it to another lower team or something.

Next quarters server fees are due in a couple weeks, so I've chucked some more $$$ in the pot. The message at the head of the topic suggests we've got enough already, but probably best to have at least one payment in hand available.

 

We definitely need to do something to drum players up, the server is totally dead. I've not seen anyone else in ages, not that I've been on as often as I used to be myself. Maybe time for a week of a different world/challenge?

I have been mega busy with work, but when i do join i am like ermmmmm what to do next? ive done everything i can, so i think Slugsie is right maybe its time for a different challenge or restart? My daughter is talking about making a Mushroom tree house for her next home so i think she wants a reset, could always backup world in case people want to go back to it or maybe a moded server? most moded packs out now are more stable than the last moded pack we had on which was Craftpack? i think  which was full of bugs!, plus moded is more fun than vanilla, more to do and could get the server packed out!

 

Thoughts on moded pack to use?

 

PS ill add some more money to the pot on Monday or Tuesday!

yeah I think a reset would entice me more to join too. I've been super busy at work lately  due to the holidays too so haven't really looked into much but I may do some looking tomorrow. The server supports all the main modpacks so I'll probably pick out a few for us to choose from. Of course a backup of this world will be kept in case we ever want to go back to it as well.

okay I'm looking through the FTB modpacks and here are the ones I'm considering for us.

 

1.12.2

 

Let me know if any of them sound interesting enough to try. A community cooperative sky block could be interesting even if we just want to do weekends with that or something :)

It's been a long time since I played any FTB, so I'd like to try out FTB Revelation.

 

BTW, the FTB launcher seems to be very flaky. It's taken a few tries to get it to install and run FTB Revelation.

weird I didn't have any issue personally but if your computer doesn't play nice with the launcher you could try the classic FTB launcher or MultiMC supports FTB packs as well. I've always been a fan of the simplicity but capability of MultiMC

Twitch sold off Curse to overwolf recently and tomorrow is the last day before they rip the last of curse out of the Twitch App, overwolf servers will probably be a little flakey for the next few days as everyone who used a supported game (MC, WOW etc) make their transition to the new owners.

FTB Revelation gets my vote, don't really like sky block packs! :)

I got the FTB client installed OK, but it took a couple of goes to get FTB Revelations installed. Reading the support forums quite a few people have had the exact same issue. I've also found that running FTB Revelations pack needs LOTS of RAM. The minimum recommended in 4GB, but I've found that I need 8GB for it to be smooth (although I am also using the Sphax 64 pack, so that won't help).

 

It's running OK now on a local world, so I'm ready to try it out.

yeah Revelations has 143 mods on it so if it doesn't work out we can always try one of the lighter packs.

 

edit: and we're up and running. give it a go :)

 

edit2: optifine isn't installed by default so try adding that to see if it helps the pack run better as well

OK, so I've been on the Server for an hour or 2, working fine after a slightly bumpy start (took a minute or so for the server to fully load and not be laggy).

 

Thanks @Brandon H. :D

dang I must just be lucky. Had no issues installing on my desktop, laptop, or Shadow subscription environment.

 

I'm pushing it to the limit on Shadow; have x32 BDCraft textures with the modpack patch for the extra textures + I'm running a shader pack through OptiFine :D still get 30ish FPS on average. Takes like 10 minutes for the client to load up though lol

 

edit: with the texture pack and shader pack it uses like 10GB RAM lmao :rofl:

Yes, the 10+ minutes to load the client, then another couple of minutes to load the server and settle down are frustrating.

 

I'm using the x64 BDCraft texture pack, no optifine (I've never gotten along with Optifine). 8GB Ram allocated, and it's using most of it. Still getting 75fps in the open. :)

      The PlayStation Network is down for certain games
      by Usama Jawad

      Microsoft's Xbox Live service had an outage yesterday, resulting in gamers facing problems in connecting to it. This caused failed purchases, inability to sign in for some users, issues in launching certain games, and unavailability of xCloud gaming. While Microsoft was able to resolve the problem in six hours, it did admit that the fix took longer than anticipated to apply.

      Today, it's the PlayStation Network's turn which appears to be down for several games.

      According to Sony's dedicated network service status page, the PlayStation Network is facing issues in the "gaming and social" category. This affects the PlayStation Vita, 3, 4, and 5. The company cautions that:

      It's unclear exactly how widespread the problem is, but the status appears to be the same across most regions including the US, UK, and Canada. Engadget reports that while some games like Fortnite and Fall Guys work just fine, players are having issues connecting to others such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Minecraft, Destruction AllStars, and Don't Starve Together.

      The issue was officially confirmed by Sony on 6:33PM ET, but earlier reports point to it appearing on 1PM ET, which essentially means that it's been almost 12 hours since the partial outage began. It's currently unclear when a fix will be rolled out, but you can keep an eye on the network service status page for updates in the meantime.

      Minecraft Dungeons player count passes 10 million across all platforms
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Mojang Studios' Minecraft spin-off from last year, Minecraft Dungeons, has now surpassed the impressive 10 million player milestone less than a year after its launch. The title has seen a healthy number of updates and DLC since its arrival, and the studio is currently preparing to release the next content drop later this month.

      The cooperative dungeon crawler released in May 2020 for the PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 promising a different take on the studio's massively popular block-based sensation that is Minecraft. Xbox Game Pass subscribers on PC and Xbox consoles are also a part of this massive 10 million player number, but the studio didn't provide a breakdown on how each platform has fared.

      However, Mojang did share some numbers on how the 10-million strong community has spent their time in the game. The Arch-Illager has been defeated 5,934,629 times since the launch of the game, while the Redstone Monstrosity has been taken down 7,044,521, though that's out of 19,511,994 attempts. Players have also spent a combined total of 1141 years in the Camp hub area.

      Celebrating the milestone, Mojang is releasing a cape and a pet for all Minecraft Dungeons players for free, which will appear in everyone's inventories on February 24. This is the same day that the new six-mission strong Flames of the Nether DLC will land alongside a hefty base game update. Find details on the DLC pack and the update over here.

      Minecraft Dungeons' next DLC pack takes players to the Nether on February 24
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Mojang Studios today announced Flames of the Nether, the latest downloadable content pack heading to Minecraft Dungeons. As the name should have already clued Minecraft fans in, this pack will finally take players to the Nether to experience new themed missions, items, cosmetics, and more. There is also a content-packed free update coming in.

      Unlike previous DLC packs that showed up with three missions, this one carries six missions where players will face mobs from the various biomes of the Nether. New artifacts, weapons, gear, as well as two new skins and a Baby Ghast pet are included in the pack as well.

      Mojang will be launching a massive free update to the base game alongside the DLC pack as well. This free content will introduce Ancient Hunts as a new feature, which are procedurally-generated end-game missions that offer "top-tier Gilded gear" for defeating difficult Ancient Mobs.

      Ancient Hunts will also grant Gold, a new currency that will revolve around the new Piglin merchant incoming to the game. More information about this merchant, as well as changes coming to the Apocalypse Plus difficulty, will be revealed later.

      Flames of the Nether and the game update will land on February 24 for the PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 versions of the title. The DLC pack will be available as a separate purchase as well as a part of the Minecraft Dungeons season pass. The dungeon crawler spin-off from last year based on Mojang's block-based sensation has so far received three DLC packs: Jungle Awakens, Creeping Winter, and Howling Peaks.

      Minecraft Earth is shutting down before it's even two years old
      by João Carrasqueira

      This may come as a shock to some, but Minecraft Earth still exists ever since it launched in October of 2019. However, that's set to change soon, as Microsoft-owned Mojang Studios announced today.

      Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality game for smartphones based on the popular block-based open-world title. It was first announced in May 2019, and shown off live at Apple's WWDC that year. A public beta opened later that year, but the title seemingly failed to gain significant traction. The game allowed players to see Minecraft characters and environments in the real world, making use of the typical crafting mechanics to build out their inventory and explore further.

      As of today, all paid transactions have been removed from the game, and many mechanics of the game have been made easier or more accessible so players can experience them before the game shuts down. Here's the full list of changes:

      The game will shut down on June 30, after which date the game will be unavailable to download. The day after, all player data except Character Creator and Minecoin entitlements will be deleted. Players with rubies left in the game will have them converted to Minecoins, which can be used to purchase paid items in console and PC versions of Minecraft. Additionally, anyone who has spent money on Minecraft Earth will be given a copy of Minecraft proper.

      It seems like Microsoft's mobile titles haven't been terribly successful, as just a few months ago, Gears Pop! suffered a similar fate in a similarly short period of time. As a reminder, servers for that game will be online until April 26.

      Minecraft Marketplace New Year's Sale now live
      by Hamza Jawad

      Earlier this month, Minecraft with RTX left the beta stage, becoming available for Windows 10 players. A couple of weeks before Mojang and Nvidia's technical achievement, meanwhile, a Star Wars DLC themed after the fictional universe's original trilogy and The Mandalorian TV series was released in the Marketplace.

      Now, with the holiday season having arrived, the Minecraft Marketplace New Year's Sale has gone live, bringing a flurry of discounts, and some freebies for good measure.

      For starters, the "doorbusters" feature introduced at last year's 'Block' Friday sale is being brought back. These are essentially flash sales arriving in the form of two daily deals per day at 75% off for each item. The discounts this time around will be focused on creator content. Aside from this, up to 100 regular items will also be available at 33% off for the duration of the New Year's Sale. Notably, these regular items will refresh halfway through the sale, so make sure to keep that in mind if something catches your eye.

      Finally, Tetrascape's New Year's 2021 skin pack is being offered to players for free. The item boasts traditional outfits from Brazil, South Africa, Phillipines, North America, and the United Kingdom. It can be claimed here.

      Minecraft's New Year's Sale will be continuing from December 22 through January 4. The aforementioned midway refresh will take place on December 29, which marks the end of the sale's first week.
