    BOARD RULES AND GUIDELINES

    READ THE STICKIES! There are threads stickied at the top of each section and they contain important information. If it's clear you haven't read them then you might be probated depending on the whim of the moderators. Don't take the risk, read stickied threads! MINOR INFRACTIONS - These things can get you probated if you push it MAJOR INFRACTIONS - These things will get you banned RULES FOR POSTING PICTURES- Verbal warning to ban depending If you see someone breaking these rules, report them using the report function. Reporting mods and admins isn't advised. The moderation staff has the final say in matters of rule violation. We run these forums out of our pockets and the goodness of our hearts. Show some respect for the forums and follow the rules if you wish to post on them. If you can't do that, then you don't deserve to use them. This thread will be updated when new rules are added. If you see that a new post has been made here, read it ASAP. Ignorance of rules is not immunity to rules. THE LAW Golden Rule: Ask yourself, "Is my post or reply actually interesting, funny, or contributing to the discussion at hand?" - if not, don't post. No chat or chan speak - LOL THAT'S FAIL! OMG LIEK CAN I HAS MUDKIPS ROFLLLL +1 DIAMOND WIN 4 U LULZ - No. No Signing Posts - Your username is already there, it's redundant. Plus it makes you look like a loser. (You might be a loser!) It's also an easy way to tell that you haven't read these rules. No duplicate or redundant threads - first check to make sure the same or similar thread does not already exist. This includes stickied information. Duplicate threads will be deleted. No low effort posts - "Hello I'm new here!" "FIRST POST!" "THREAD IS WIN!" "HELP ME FIND UH SERVER" All examples of why you should have been thrown back. No asking for ETA's - We are tired of these questions. Updates depend on lots of different things and they happen when they happen. No Memes - If the only response you can think of for something is an overused terrible image with text on it, or a beaten to death catchphrase you should have a sit down and question your direction in life. "Who am I?" "Do I even have my own personality?" "When did I replace my wit and social interaction skills with a series of shitty .jpg's?" A few examples of things you might consider pondering. No PMing Admins or Mods with bug reports. - You will not get special private help. We don't have time for that. No backseat modding - Helpful tips and a link to stickied thread is A-OK, talking like you have some kind of power isn't. Lose the smug and leave the moderation to the moderators. Do not triple post, and avoid double posting - You have an edit button. USE IT. Do not BUMP threads - This is worthless and annoying and counts as a low effort post. No discussing illegal activities - The internet is a big place. Take it somewhere we aren't responsible for. This includes piracy talk. Yarr! No Racial slurs or sexism - Yeah yeah, shock value humor. We get it. Get bent. No spamming - Posting multiple similar threads, posting the same thing multiple times, or posting junk threads. No advertising or soliciting - You need moderator permission to advertise any offsite program or service. Current exceptions include Links to Let's Plays with ads. No pay-to-play servers - If you are still interested, message an admin, however by default we don't allow those types of servers. No unverified download links - DO NOT post links to Technic Launchers or Tekkit Servers or any other download without clearing it through an admin first. Its a security risk, don't do it. No misusing the report feature - Reporting a post means it must break the rules in some way. Using it to ask for help or favors will is naughty naughty! No ban evasion - We will find out. If you can't wait for a probation to run out, you're better off unplugging your computer. No mod sass - We really don't care if you think you're right. We are in charge for a reason. No Impersonating Mods/Admins - This includes adding fake mod edits to your posts. Don't be a dickbag - (A bag of dicks) No Adf.ly links - This board is an adf.ly free zone. This is a catch all and includes adcraft or anything else that gives someone money for clicking a link. You will be banned for posting any links like that. No image leeching - If you have a picture you want to share such as a minecraft screenshot or comic, do not link it from an outside website. Use an image host to rehost it. Websites like www.imgur.com let you paste in the link to the image and it rehosts it for you. No visible adult images - If it's NSFW (not safe for work) then either just post a link with NSFW or before it, or don't post it. No posting memes - Everyone has seen them 100 times. Be original. You should be starting the next great joke here that gets beaten into the ground until everyone is sick of it. Like that one with the dog wearing the guys shoes? I love that one. They don't even fit!

    BOARD RULES AND GUIDELINES

    In the end, those who moderate the forums make the calls. It's up to them to enforce these rules at their discretion. Sure they may let something slide once or twice, but don't get upset when you are punished for being an idiot. Don't email anyone saying "WHY WAS I PUNISHED I DIDN'T BREAK THE RULES I HATE YOU!" Just sit it out and learn from it instead. The one thing that wont happen ever is you being punished for no reason. No one will kick you out without just cause. We really don't have time to do that. If you are ejected, then there is a reason and you should try and grow from the experience. This isn't some philosophical touchy-feely sing-kumbayah-around-a-campfire board where we discuss deeper philosophical principles on what it means to be banned, what is truly "fair" in life, etc. We are all cool people (yes, human beings) so treating everyone like one will get you much further than trying to pull an "academic know-it-all, everyone else is a brainless monkey" on other people, let alone staff.

  9. A little background story first: I have been hosting packs and servers for the last few years. A few years ago Technic added support for allowing us to host custom modpacks. This was awesome and I went ahead almost the moment it happened. This was still the time of big and heavy zip files. Then came along Solder. Solder helped us destributing files one at a time. It took me almost a year to get it working from when I started attempting to use it. I did however get it working, back in June I think it was. All was well, though I quite quickly discovered that packing files for Solder was quite the hasle. So being the enormous lazy guy I am I sat down one Tuesday and made a script that could pack all the files for me. Nice i thought, the only problem was that I had to enter modname, modversion and minecraft version for each and every mod... And having a 150 files modpack that certainly wasn't boring So I had what the h**k and turned it into an actual program, that could figure out most of the important stuff like name, version and mcversion. Since then I added quite a few extra things I thought was necesarry, like only packing updated mods, checking permissions, including forge and configs. So enough with the story: Solder Helper The result of all this is something I thought others could make use of, so that's why I decided to share it with you guys here, since i'm likely not the only one who has been pretty bored with updating. Core features: Create packs for either Solder or just normal zip packs. Create FTB Packs and get permission lists Include any forge version you wishes, just choose from the application. Include configs Check permissions if you wishes so (Highly encouraged) Both private and public. Get permission list in a nice text format Get a list nice and simple list of all packed mods Runs on both Linux and Windows Get modlist Include unarchieved mods Include stuff like the script folder from Minetweaker Automatically upload Solder Files to an FTP host Automatically update your modpacks on your solder install Automatically upload Solder Files to Amazon S3 services With all the improvement it's shouldn't take more than a minute to pack all your files for distribution. The program is OpenSource and can be found on github. For Windows the installer can be found here. This installer also included an autoupdater for when I add additional features. This uses about 10 MB of space total. For Linux just do the following and you can find the program in your home directory: curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zlepper/TechnicSolderHelper/master/TechnicSolderHelper/install.sh | bash It can be done from from anywhere, though you have to use the terminal, then the installer script takes care of the rest. WARNING: It will use quite a lot extra space, since it requires mono to be installed, about 250 MB. However the installation of mono is included in the script. To run the program just navigate into the install directory and look for the file called "Run SolderHelper.sh" To update it just run the "update.sh" file. Planned features: Support for FTB packs Added Support for AT Launcher packs Autoupload to FTP servers Added Autoupdate of the actual Technic Solder installs, so you don't have to enter versions each time. Added Creation of a modlist you can paste in places like Technic ads Added Creation of a complete permissionlist. Added (Would be nice if we could format things in the pack configs, but that's for another time) Bugs I expect a few bugs here and there. If you happen to stumble into any the program will create a crash report on your desktop. If you could report the issue on github and include the crashlog, and what you were doing I would be very grateful, and will try to fix issues ASAP. There shouldn't be any dangerous bugs, but incase anything goes wrong I'm not responsible for it. Warning: If you decide to use the mysql function of the program, be warned: You have to open a port to your MySQL server, which is a major security risk. It is recommended you create an ssh tunnel to connect to the remote server: ssh -L 3306:hostname:3306 [email protected] The syntax is ssh -L <localport>:hostname:<remoteport> <username>@<servername> The you can point Modpack Helper to localhost and everything should work securely. Contact If you have a question to ask, just write in this thread, or find me on the Technic Discord Server.

    New here? Welcome to planet Tekkit!

    Greetings, Tekkiteers! I am growing a little tired of repeating the same few points over and over again when somebody new asks for directions. So I'll compile the most useful information here and only link to it from now. Yes, I'm a lazy person. :-p 1. Welcome to Tekkit! Dear new player, welcome anew to Minecraft. You probably played default Minecraft before, which we call "vanilla" here, and the core concepts are of course still there even when piling 110 mods on top. But there are so many new things, so many changes, that you should consider it basically a new game. Different. Advanced. Harder. More rewarding. Taking much longer to explore, too. Most mods expand on the concepts of the core game, some introduce whole new concepts, like an energy system to power machines, and pipes to transport items and fluids. It can be a bit overwhelming when you are confronted with all that complexity, so I'll describe the first recommended steps here, up to the point where you should be able to strike out on your own, with your own ideas and agenda. However, don't expect to be spoonfed. I will name the machines and items, but you will have to look up stuff for yourself. 2. But how to look up stuff? There is the wiki. But it usually lags behind the state of affairs and is mostly useful to get an idea of a particular mod you're investigating, not for looking up every little recipe. The actual, everyday lookup tool is called Not Enough Items (NEI). This is the opulent overlay you probably noticed when you opened your inventory. NEI is as much an encyclopedia as it is a cheating tool (if you have admin/operator rights or are in singleplayer). Mostly, it is a complete list of all blocks and items in game, and you can actually give yourself those items by clicking on them (left click gives a stack, right click just one). But don't kill your fun by cheating. We just use it to look up stuff, which can be done by browsing, but also by using the search box to filter the list. Hover over an item and press R to be shown the crafting recipe of any item that has one. You may notice that your inventory will be sorted everytime you do this. Unfortunately, the default sort key is also R, so you may want to reassign that one. I try to always write the names of ingame blocks with a capital letter, so you know that this is a name you can look up. 3. Ok, what to do first? Much the same you do in vanilla Minecraft. Punch wood, make a Wooden Pickaxe, get cobblestone, make a Stone Pickaxe, dig a shelter. Find coal, build a Furnace, make torches. Get some more wood. Dig down for resources, either with a ladder shaft or a stair shaft. And so on. The beginning of the game is just like vanilla. But you will notice quickly that there is more. Copper and Tin ores will turn up when you dig, so will Silver and Lead ore a little further down. At first, just gather everything you can and stuff it into chests. If you don't find much coal, chop down some trees and make charcoal. You will need a bit of the following to get seriously started: Copper Ore Tin Ore Lead Ore Iron Ore Silver Ore Gold Ore Redstone Sand/Glass Coal/Charcoal (either is fine) 2 pieces of Flint Half a stack of each is recommended, although you can get away with a little less in case of Silver and Gold. 4. I get to make machines now, right? Yes, you do. But machines are no use without power. The first mod you seriously use will be Thermal Expansion. This is a core mod, as it provides the primary power system Redstone Flux (RF), most basic machines and also transport pipes. You will build a Bucket, a Steam Dynamo, a Leadstone Energy Cell, a few Leadstone Energy Conduits, a Pulverizer and a Strongbox. Look up the recipes in NEI, and try to smelt only as much ingots as you need, not more. Make sure you have some well-lighted free space in your shelter. Make a 2x2 water pool somewhere in reach. Set down the Pulverizer a few blocks away from it and put a Steam Dynamo right next to that. For the very first run, the Dynamo will power the machine directly, but we will add a proper battery shortly. Take the bucket, fill it with water and right-click with it on the Dynamo. Do this four times. It needs both water and fuel to run, and you just filled its internal water tank. Now put some coal or charcoal in. The Dynamo will light up and start producing steam, and then power. If you set it right, the power will slowly fill the Pulverizer's energy bar, which can be checked in the machine's interface. Now that you got a working Pulverizer, stick some ores in. It will create dusts, which can be smelted into ingots. Why the hassle? Because this will effectively double your ore yield, and also get you bonus dusts occasionally. For example, pulverizing a stack of Copper Ore will get you a little Gold for free, and Tin Ore a little Iron. You definitely want that. You need to replenish the water in the Dynamo after a while, and also the fuel. Don't go crazy pulverizing yet, just make what you require for the next few steps. A few more Iron, Copper, Tin and Gold Ingots, mostly. 5. Can I store energy, too? Certainly. We want a battery to store and buffer that power. You will notice in the recipe that the Leadstone Energy Cell needs a Redstone Conductance Coil to make, which is different from the Transmission Coil that went into the Dynamo, and the Reception Coil that went into the Pulverizer. But once you understood these three types, you mastered all the coils and machine categories. Redstone Reception Coil = requires Gold Ingots, goes into machines that use power Redstone Transmission Coil = requires Silver Ingots, goes into machines that produce power Redstone Conductance Coil = requires Electrum Ingots, goes into Energy Cells Electrum? Yes, you already have it. Just take Silver and Gold dusts and mix them on a crafting grid. Congratulations, you created your first compound metal! Smelt the dusts to make the actual Ingots. Craft the Leadstone Energy Cell now. This is a good time to craft yourself a Crescent Hammer, which will be your best friend for now. It is just a wrench with a funny name, and you can right-click with it to turn machines, toggle through all kinds of modes on different items, and also sneak-right-click (sneak is shift-key by default) to cleanly break the machines, conduits, or just about anything in Thermal Expansion. Use it to break either the Dynamo or the Pulverizer when they are not running, and place the Cell in between. You should also make some Leadstone Energy Conduits (a fancy name for power cables), which will enable you to power machines over some distance. Try running the cable from the Cell, and attach the Pulverizer to the cable. It could look like this: Now have a look if the Cell is set up right. All Thermal Expansion machines have simple colour-coded interfaces that can be toggled through all states for each side independently. The six sides you see in the config are the six sides of the machine cube, so any side can be set to any function. Bottom right is the backside. An Energy Cell can be set to input (blue), output (orange) or ignore (pale yellow) for each side independently. You can actually see this on the outside of the block if you look closely, but you need to use the interface to change settings. Make sure that the side facing the Dynamo is set to blue, and the other one to orange. With the Dynamo on the left and the machine on the right, it may look like this: You don't need to set all sides to ignore that you're not using, it's just something I do. Try placing a Strongbox next to the Pulverizer, and look at the Pulverizer's interface. It also has six configurable sides, but a little more colours (not coloured corners here, but squares). That is because you can later choose to route the default dusts and the bonus dusts different ways. Blue is input again, orange is all-output, yellow and red are (optional) separate outputs. For now, just set the side adjacent to the Strongbox to orange, which will cause all products to be dropped into the Strongbox. In case your Strongbox is on the right side of the machine, it looks like so: In case you want to move your stuff, keep in mind that the power already stored inside machines will be lost, but Energy Cells will retain their charge if you sneak-wrench them properly. So will Strongboxes. Yes, you can pick them up while full, carry them around and place them down again as much as you like. For completeness sake: There is also a block called Grindstone available from the Applied Energistics mod. This is basically a low-tech Pulverizer that needs no power, but you will have to build a crank, stick it in and manually operate it. Yep, sitting on that grindstone like a monkey while you turn and turn... not really the Tekkit way, but it will work in a pinch. 6. Bucketing that water is tedious... Then make an Aqueous Accumulator, and some Opaque Fluiducts. The ducts are also available in a transparent version later, but you can't craft them yet. Place the Accumulator down in the water pool. For the best results, enlarge the pool to 3x3 and place the machine just in the middle. Then connect the Accumulator's top side to the Dynamo with Fluiducts. The Accumulator is an automated water pump, it requires no energy, and will provide water forever, as long as it is immersed in water source blocks. No more bucketing! In case you're short on sand to smelt into glass, place some Cobblestone in the Pulverizer and be amazed. 7. Can I make a machine for smelting, too? Definitely! Until now, you had to keep using the vanilla Furnace to turn dusts into ingots, but it is now time to make a Redstone Furnace. You will need eight pieces of Clay for it, so look around in shallow water around your shelter. You need the Clay to make the two Bricks for the recipe. If you are short on metals, go and mine some more. Connect the Redstone Furnace to the Energy Conduits as well, and smelt everything in there now. Except ores, of course, as you will only get the double output when going through the Pulverizer. It is possible to set the machines back-to-back, so Pulverizer output will drop in the Furnace to get smelted immediately. With this setup, you will be able to fill your chests with processed resources. Try to stash a bit of everything, but what you will be needing next is Ferrous Metal, to proceed to the next tech level. 8. Tech Level? Thermal Expansion has several tiers, or levels, of efficiency. The Leadstone stuff you made so far is the lowest grade. The Dynamo and Cell will store and output just enough RF for two machines. You could add another Dynamo, but the Cell will not be able to take the power from two of them at the same time, and cannot pass it on, either. So it's time for Invar. Ferrous Ore is a rare and precious ore found down on Redstone level. But Pulverized Ferrous also gets produced occasionally as a byproduct when pulverizing Iron Ore. Once you got about ten of those dusts, use them to make your second compound metal: Invar Blend. If you accidentally smelted the Ferrous to ingots already, don't panic. You can turn any ingot back into dust with the Pulverizer. Two iron dusts and one ferrous make three Invar Blend, which is required for just about everything on the second tech level (you need to smelt the blend to get the actual ingots). Use your first Invar Ingots to re-craft your Leadstone Energy Cell to a Hardened Energey Cell. Do the same for the Conduits. You can also upgrade your Strongbox to a larger version. And the best thing is, all of this can be done with filled items. You won't lose any energy from the Cell, or contents from the Strongbox. Just re-craft them with Invar, and enjoy the upgrades. A Hardened Energy Cell can take power from up to five Dynamos at once, so go ahead and make some more. In case you are wondering what the other three kinds of Dynamos do, they also produce power, just from different fuels. Compression Dynamos are for liquid fuels (oil, fuel, biofuel), Magmatic are for lava (and are the only kind that runs without water), while Reactant are a weird and rarely used variant that uses other agents than water. Stick with Steam for the start. You can use Conduits to attach all Dynamos at once to the same input side of your Cell, or put them on different sides, just as you like. Remember that you have to configure the Cell sides, and that each Dynamo requires both water and fuel to run. You may want to make another Pulverizer and Furnace to increase your processing capacity, but you also have the means to expand your factory now. 9. More machines? More machines. A Sawmill can be nice to have, as it will increase the plank yield from wood blocks, and also produce Sawdust, which can be crafted into pellets and smelted into more charcoal afterwards. But the machine you really want is an Induction Smelter. This one is an advanced Furnace with advanced recipes. By the way, you can check the full recipe list of a machine by left-clicking on the progress arrow in its interface. That way, you will learn that the Induction Smelter can produce Tinker's Alloy (a.k.a Bronze) from Copper and Tin, and more importantly, Hardened Glass from Pulverized Lead and Pulverized Obsidian. Which is the next tech level. Once you are able to produce Obsidian, you will be able to make Hardened Glass, and proceed to the next level. The Induction Smelter can also double the ore yield by smelting them with sand, but it will not grant bonus materials like the Pulverizer method does. What it does is create Slag and Rich Slag, which is an advanced thing that I won't cover here. 10. Obsidian... that means I need diamonds, right? This is the standard way. Craft a Diamond Pickaxe, tediously mine Obsidian, then mine some more Obsidian. Fortunately, you can also build yourself an Obsidian Generator and bypass some of the grinding. There are two ways to do this, the efficient/elegant one and the standard one. The elegant one involves Block Breakers, at least one bucket of Gelid Cryotheum and that you know what you're doing. As a beginner, go for the standard way now. Build an Igneous Extruder and set it to Obsidian (it can also produce Cobblestone and smooth stone). It requires no energy, but you will have to supply water and lava to it. Right now, you will need to fetch the lava in buckets still, but you can make this easier with the cheap and useful Portable Tanks. They hold 8 buckets of whatever liquid you put in there, can be placed and wrenched just like Strongboxes and will simplify your lava gathering a lot - just empty your lava buckets into them until full. Upgrade them to Hardened level with Invar to double their capacity from eight to 16 buckets each. Go ahead and fetch 14 buckets of lava with your new toys. Once you got that, either bucket the lava into the Extruder, or simply plonk the Portable Tank on top of the machine, make sure that the top side is configured blue (input), and right-click the Tank with a wrench. This will set it output mode, and it will drain its contents nicely if a compatible liquid inventory, like the Extruder, is attached. Don't worry about modes too much - Portable Tanks will always be in input mode when you place them down again, unless you place them directly on top of another Portable Tank (in which case they effectively become a single, larger tank if the same liquid is inside both, or either one is empty; until you wrench them again). Your 14 buckets of lava, along with 14 buckets of water (from the Accumulator if you're lazy) should get you the 14 pieces of Obsidian you need. 11. Why 14? Because we're going to the Nether next, and 14 pieces of Obsidian make a 4x5 Nether Portal. If you have no style and leave the corners open, you could go with just 10. In case you forgot, a Nether Portal is an Obsidian frame enclosing a 2x3 vertical empty space that is ignited with Flint And Steel once completed. While newer Minecraft versions allow for other sizes, we are still on 1.6.4 and you need to craft this exact size. Why we are doing this now? There is one very crucial machine we want to have soon, which is the Magma Crucible. You need Nether Bricks to craft it, and there is no easy way in the Overworld to obtain those. But don't panic. You don't have to look for a Nether Fortress. Just make your way to the red place, and get exactly eight pieces of Netherrack. That's right, just Netherrack. Then turn around and go home. Don't touch the Nether Ores yet, shiny as they might look. The Zombie Pigmen would make short work of you at this stage. Netherrack smelts to Nether Bricks, four of which combine to placeable Nether Bricks, the very thing we need for that machine. 12. And what is that Crucible for? Melting stuff and turning it into liquids. You can put stone or Obsidian in there and turn it into Lava, but it is more commonly used to turn Redstone into Destabilized Redstone, which is crucial for the next tech level. It can also make Gelid Cryotheum, a very useful substance that can be used to make an Obsidian Generator and to turn the Lava lakes in the Nether into Obsidian. You want to know how? This is the point where you maybe want to look into a >specialized guide. The elegant Obsidian generator is described in the >alchemy guide, some way down (I first wrote about the complicated one, then somebody suggested the simple one, which is way better). You should be getting a feel for things now. There is more to the machine stuff, and I will describe the useful and friendly Minefactory Reloaded in a separate post later. 13. Arm yourself As soon as you have Iron to spare, make yourself some Iron Armor. You could also make it from Invar, but that one has the same defense, just higher durability, which is not worth wasting the precious compound for. An iron sword should also be an early priority, or maybe an Iron Spear or Halberd for the greater reach they give. But more importantly, as soon as you can obtain a fully-repaired bow (either by crafting or by looting/repair-crafting), do not shoot with it. Take it home and craft it into a Crossbow. The increased missile speed, punch and accuracy is more than worth the iron that goes into making the bolts. If you're short on feathers but do have gunpowder, make a Blunderbuss, which is a medieval shotgun that shoots gravel. Yes, you can actually make yourself a boomstick and go shotgun on them Creepers. This is thanks to the formidable Balkon's Weapon Mod, which should make fights that much more rewarding. Poke around in NEI for more stuff, and note that you can simply enter a mod's name to see its assorted items. There also is a Musket, a Boomerang and even a Javelin for throwing, and a Katana if you're feeling particularly samurai. If you're looking for easy travel and a way to avoid fights, or even win them more easily, maybe a >Jetpack is what you need. 14. Advanced Mining: Turtle Power In case you find mining tedious, there is a minion at your disposal that can do it for you. The Turtle is a programmable little sidekick, available in quite a lot of flavours, like mining. I never used it myself, but people tell me that it just takes coal to run and will bring back a healthy amount of resources from its adventures. 15. Advanced Mining: The Quarry What you know as mining is usually just shaft mining, or opportunity mining while spelunking. If you can do it, strip mining will get you much more resources. Strip mining is the process of removing a mountain or chunk of landscape, piece by piece, until it is gone completely. I am pointing it out here in case you are successful and already found yourself some diamonds, because eleven diamonds are the entry fee to quarry land. If you're curious, I wrote down what I know about it in a >separate guide. It will be hard to power the Quarry with just Dynamos, though, so the next thing I'll cover is how to produce some serious power. 16. Power Struggles If you experimented a little with all your new options, you have likely noticed that you can use lots of power with all those machines. Building more Steam Dynamos is only a temporary solution, because it becomes hard to feed them all with coal. You have several alternatives to solve the power generation problem: switch to Compression Dynamos running on Fuel (or unprocessed Oil, but only in a pinch) > you will need a Refinery to process Fuel (4 Diamonds), a Pump to gather Oil and some liquid storage, ideally Drums; you also need to keep finding Oil switch to BioGenerators running on Biofuel > you will need an autofarm to generate biomass and a BioReactor to ferment it stick with Steam Dynamos, but build yourself a Charcoal generator > you will need an autofarm to mass-produce wood go nuclear and build an early Yellorium reactor > you will need a few stacks of Iron Ingots, Coal/Charcoal, Yellorium Ingots, a little Redstone and 1 Diamond Believe it or not, but 4. is by far the easiest option. The mod is called BigReactors, and it will introduce you to Multi-Block Structures while also providing KiRF of power (that is kilo-RF). 17. The Nuclear Option I suggest you familiarize yourself with the principles of Yellorium Reactors on the wiki, so I don't have to paraphrase them here. We will build something slightly bigger than in the example pictures, namely a 4x4x4 cube without coolants that will serve you well until the time when you create your own, larger design. Here is your shopping list for the materials: 128 Iron Ingots 112 Graphite Bars 34 Yellorium Ingots + 32 (better some more) to run the finished reactor on 9 Redstone Dusts 1 Diamond 1 Wooden Chest 1 Piston (optional) 26 Glass if you want transparent sides to see the inside of the reactor Graphite? Just smelt coal or charcoal to make it. As both will work, charcoal is recommended because it is renewable and cannot be pulverized for coal dust later. Yellorium is created by smelting pulverized Yellorite Ore. Don't smelt the ores directly, because that will turn them into Uranium (and forfeit the doubling). This is not a bug, but a feature to support Atomic Science, the other nuclear mod in Tekkit. It is vastly more >advanced and complicated, so stay away from that stuff for now. It would be a good idea now to make a Machinist's Workbench for crafting. That one has an inventory of its own and can memorize a recipe even after you removed the ingredients (the items on the grid are only placeholders). Ingredients have to be inside that inventory for crafting, otherwise they will have a red underlay on the grid. Once you get used to it, you will find it useful for just about any kind of crafting. Now craft the following blocks: 52 Reactor Casing for building, 28 more as ingredients to craft the other blocks 8 Yellorium Fuel Rods 4 Reactor Control Rods 1 Reactor Controller 1 Reactor Power Tap 1 Reactor Access Port (optional) 13 Reactor Glass (re-craft 13 of the Casing blocks with the glass) As usual, the recipes are in NEI. You will have three Casing blocks more than you need, because they can only be crafted in groups of four. Now assemble the Reactor! If you opted for windows to look inside, keep in mind that only the side faces may contain Reactor Glass, not the frame and edges. Same rule applies to Power Tap, Access Port and Controller, so leave some room for them, too. Here is a picture of how the result should look like, one with glass and one without: If you did everything right, the textures will change when the last block is placed. Congratulations, you built yourself a Multi-Block Reactor! Climb on top first and set all Control Rods (separately) to 70%, then put 32 Yellorium Ingots into the Access Port. In case you missed it, Yellorium is not only a crafting component for the reactor, but also the actual fuel it consumes. Every Fuel Rod block inside will increase fuel capacity by four Ingots, so our 8-rod has a capacity of 8x4=32 Ingots. Once you fueled it, the rods will be visibly filled with (liquified) Yellorium, although you can only see it if you used Reactor Glass. Now open the Controller interface and switch it on. The Control Rods moderate the reaction, i.e. reduce core temperature and power output. The more extended they are, the less power is produced - think of them as nuclear handbrakes. You can leave them all out at 0%, which will result in a very hot reactor producing lots of power. There is much to know about reactor efficiency, temperature, fertility and more, but the setup I gave you strikes a good balance for your first operation at 70%. It will stay around the optimal temperature (which is ~900°C) and produce 960 RF/t, equalling 12 Dynamos. It will use just 0.02 mB/t of Yellorium, which means it will run over 40 minutes before the first Yellorium Ingot is completely burned and a Cyanite Ingot will be thrown out as waste. That's right, it can run a full real-life day on about 35 Yellorium Ingots, outputting 960 RF/t the whole time! Just keep a stack of Yellorium Ingots in the input slot, so it can replenish. Efficiency and power output will drop when the rods are not fully stacked with Yellorium. If you don't actually need that much power, you can dial it back by extending the Control Rods further to 80% or 90%. Setting a Rod to 100% will disable it. It is recommended to have all Rods at the same height, otherwise the parameter readings will be funky (because they will oscillate between values for each Rod, which makes them largely useless). You can knock them all to 0% and see how high the temperatures and power output can go. Right now, there is no meltdown feature even when excessive heat is generated, so feel free to crank it up. Remember that your Energy Conduits need to connect to the Power Tap. Leadstone ones are too weak entirely, so use at least Hardened ones. Observe, however, that Hardened Conduits and Cells max out at 400 RF/t, so your 960 RF/t won't pass through those. This is not tragic, because the Reactor comes with a free internal power storage of 10 million RF, which will fill with whatever the Conduits cannot take. Just keep in mind to shut down the Reactor once the internal storage is full, otherwise it will burn its fuel for nothing. You could also dial the reactor down with the Control Rods to get it below 400 RF/t, or simply go ahead with that third tech level now. Redstone Energy Conduits are the top tier, carrying up to 10000 RF/t. You will need Electrum and Hardened Glass for them, and fill the empty ones with Destabilized Redstone in a Fluid Transposer before they can be used. While you're at it, a Redstone Energy Cell makes sense now as well. You can add a Reactor Rednet Port to the setup to get some advanced control options, and a Reactor Computer Port to even access it with ComputerCraft. But this is both optional and won't add much value to our little starter project. Of course you can build reactors much, much bigger (up to 32x32x48 frame size). You can use coolants to moderate temperatures and influence efficiency, be creative with column setups and tinker around with just about anything. Have fun doing that! Now that you have lots of power, it is time to build yourself an autofarm, and never worry about food or wood supplies again. 18. An autofarm? You like swinging your hoe around all day and tending to every armful of grain personally? If you do, why are you playing Tekkit? :-p No, the way of progress is turning that tedious farm into an efficient and, more importantly, self-sufficient factory. You can grow almost anything with a Minefactory Reloaded (MFR) farming chain, so let's build one to get you started! You want the following machines for a simple, but complete farming chain that will produce tons of whatever biomass you tell it to grow: 1 Planter 1 Harvester 1 Fertilizer 4 Sewers (1 recipe yields 4 of them) 1 Composter 1 Sludge Boiler 1 Breeder (optional, but useful) While you could start with as little as Planter and Harvester, the rest is not really expensive and will add great benefits. The hardest thing will actually be running all the necessary wiring, so make sure you have some stacks of Energy Conduits, Fluiducts and Itemducts to spare, and maybe an Energy Cell or two to act as buffers. You will also want Strongboxes as drop-chests for the productive machines. But first, you want Plastic Sheets. 19. Plastic Sheets? This is the land of progress, remember? MFR adds a new type of tree that you maybe noticed already, the Rubber Tree. It can be found in swamps, but occasionally also in other biomes, they're not too rare. You're asking yourself how rubber helps you with getting plastic? While there is a huge difference between the two materials in real life, MFR conveniently lumped them together into a single resource. Go chop a few of those trees, which will yield Rubber Wood, Rubber Tree Saplings and... Raw Rubber. If you have built a Sawmill, you can process the Rubber Wood there to turn it into Jungle Wood Planks, which will yield more raw rubber as a byproduct, instead of the usual Sawdust. Smelt the Raw Rubber into Rubber Bars, then simply smelt those again and marvel at the alchemy when it turns into Raw Plastic. This can be directly converted to Plastic Sheets on any 2x2 crafting grid, but keep some Raw Plastic around and don't convert it all (6 Raw Plastic should be enough for starters). We need those Sheets because all MFR machines take two of them to make, no exceptions. Most of those machines will also require Machine Frames and Redstone Reception Coils, the same ones that go into Thermal Expansion machines - so stock up on those, too. Look into the recipes to see what else you need, but there won't be anything that we didn't already use, and nothing too expensive. 20. But what exactly is an autofarm? An autofarm is the loosely-used term for the totality of the MFR farming machines working together, forming something larger than the sum of its blocks. Unlike the Yellorium Reactor, it is NOT a single Multiblock Structure, and the layout is pretty much up to your own choices and ideas. It must follow some rules, though. You are free to choose the location, but try to build it outside under the unobstructed sky and not too far away from your laboratory. Begin with the Planter. It is recommended to make a 2-3 block high maintenance room below the actual farm, so you can access the Planter from below and resolve any issues that might arise, without digging. The topmost layer needs to be Dirt or Grass blocks (either is fine), and the Planter needs to be placed one layer below the soil. I think you could even cover it up, but the standard placement will leave the space directly above it free, which allows you to place a bucket of water there. Why the water? The machine doesn't need it, but if you decide to grow crops (grain, potatoes, carrots), the soil needs moistening, which will be assured this way. The Planter needs power, so lay down some Conduits. It is recommended to also leave room for an Itemduct pipe to automate seed/sapling supply later, so you might already want to prepare that now. Setting up the Planter is simple. It has an inventory, from which it will consume any compatible seeds or saplings and plant them in the soil layer above. The coloured grid on the left allows you to control which kind of plant should grow in each quadrant, in case you need to grow several things. That's right, you don't need to set up one Planter for each kind, but can handle it all with a single one. However, the default range is only a 3x3 grid, so each quadrant is just one block in size, with the middle one unusable because of the water. The good news is that the quadrants will scale up with overall machine range. 21. Machine Range? MFR offers machine range upgrades, maybe you already noticed the slot for that in the bottom right corner of the machine interface. The Planter will always till a square area centered on the actual machine, but the default range is just 1 block around the machine in each direction. Upgrades are available from Lapis (+1 block) all the way up to Emerald (+11 blocks). This always specifies radius, not diameter, so an Emerald-upgraded Planter will till a 25x25 area (1 center block and 1+11 in all directions). Upgrades are the things we kept the Raw Plastic for, so make yourself two of them now, one for the Planter and one for the Harvester. Use Iron or Tin (+2, +3), not much larger, because the logistics become a challenge in larger setups. Tin is the maximum range that still falls within the moisture range of the central water block - so if you go bigger, you will have to worry about additional moisture for crops (trees don't need it). You can switch upgrades later even in a running machine. So, now that your Planter tills a larger area, put down the Harvester on the (center) edge of that area and apply the same kind of upgrade to it that the Planter got, so their areas match. This will be vastly simpler if you first craft yourself a Precision Sledgehammer. This is a wrench, with a very useful feature. If you hold it in hand, you will see the actual ranges of machines as an overlay, so check your setup with this tool. The Harvester has a hole on the back, so make sure that this one faces outward, and the shear/chopping side points to the tilled field. Connect power and an Itemduct to it. All harvested grains, wood, saplings, seeds and other byproducts will shoot out of here, sometimes at high speeds, so placing a buffer chest and running the pipe from that is a good idea. You also need to place a Fluiduct outlet, because the Harvester will output Sludge as a byproduct when harvesting. You can just pump it into Tanks or Drums for the start, but later you will need the Sludge Boiler to process it. You may want to create a loopback pipe for seeds and saplings to be fed back into the Planter, so you don't have to refill it manually. One or more MFR Item Routers can sort the Harvester output for you, but Itemducts with Pneumatic Servos installed in the pipe heads can do this just as well. At this point, you should drop your first seeds into the Planter. For starters, I suggest you feed it oak saplings, a few (grain) seeds and maybe rubber saplings (use the quadrant grid to balance how much of each is grown). The wood will be useful for your plank and stick needs, and also give you access to lots of Charcoal. Oaks drop Apples for eating, too (another of those convenient Minecraft anomalies). Note how the Planter does its own tilling. You will never need to swing that hoe again. 22. And what are the other machines for? As you will be producing Sludge shortly, set up the Sludge Boiler. When this machine is working, anybody standing within a few blocks will suffer from Hunger and Poison debuffs, so give it some more pipe and build it some way off. The Sludge will be consumed to randomly generate Dirt, Clay, Sand, Gravel, Netherrack, Soul Sand and Mycelium. Concerning Netherrack, this is actually an alternative to the early Nether Portal way back in point 11, but it will take a while until enough Netherrack will be created (and it also took more than a bit of progress until we got here). Overall, this machine is quite useful especially for the Sand and Clay, that is why I included it here. You could of course just void-pipe the Sludge into oblivion. As for the Fertilizer (the machine), you will love this one. It uses Industrial Fertilizer (the brown stuff) to instantly grow things on your farm, which will greatly accelerate operations. You can craft Industrial Fertilizer, but the usual way to obtain it is from a Composter, which takes power and a supply of Sewage to produce it. Sewage? Yes, liquid manure, the product of toilets. This may be a factory, but it still is a farm as well. In the absence of toilets, you guessed it, Sewage is produced by the Sewer. This one, at least, does not require any power, and you just need to pipe the stuff with Fluiducts towards the Composter. Sewers are another kind of MFR machine that work with range upgrades. But how do they work in general? Well, an animal, any animal, has to stand on top of it when it does its occasional check. The bigger the animal, the more Sewage is produced. So you want to set up a pen of cows, pigs or sheep (or all of them) and place your four Sewers as part of the ground layer. This may seem a lot of effort to just gather some manure, but the increased effectiveness is really worth it. The range of a Sewer is limited to the single block on top without any upgrades, so install some. Keep in mind, however, that placing the Sewers close enough to each other that their (increased) ranges overlap can cause glitches. While you already have a pen, you might as well place a Breeder as part of the pen wall. This one will automate mob breeding as long as it's powered and has the required food in its inventory (wheat for cows and sheep, carrots for pigs, seeds for chicken, raw fish for cats, any meat for dogs, golden apples/carrots for horses). More animals means more Sewage, means more Fertilizer, so you probably want a full pen. 23. That's a boatload of machines And there is more. You will notice that much of this stuff can be done manually, so you simply complete the chain by eliminating the manual steps one by one. The last application of the farming chain is meat production. While you could just slaughter some animals with a weapon and rely on the Breeder to bring the head count back up, MFR offers machines to automate also that, among other things. I will just mention the important ones briefly here: Deep Storage Unit: Will store just one stack of items, but maximum stack height is two billion (!) Rancher: Will automatically shear sheep and milk cows Chronotyper: Allows sorting your animals by type (baby/adult) Slaughterhouse: Will kill your animals and produce liquid (!) meat, and some Pink Slime Meat Packer: Turns the liquid meat into Raw Meat Ingots, your friendly industrial steak (heat before eating) Mob Counter: Counts mobs - no, really, it can be used to fine-control your Breeder Grinder: Kills mobs as if you killed them yourself, outputting the loot The last one needs special mention. The Grinder can be used instead of a Slaughterhouse if you prefer your cows to yield beef, not liquid meat. Its main purpose, however, is killing hostile mobs. Another useful feature the Grinder shares with Sewers (when animal breeding, ranching or killing occurs): It will generate Mob Essence. 24. Mob Essence? Yes. Liquid experience! It is generated indirectly when Sewers soak up dropped experience orbs, and directly by Grinders. The third way to obtain it is to craft an XP Extractor and applying it on yourself (have an empty bucket ready somewhere in inventory), which will suck out levels you already obtained (!) and literally put them into buckets. This also means that if you apply the Extractor often, you cannot lose much experience any more when dying. It will be safe in liquid storage. What can be done with Mob Essence? Well, the same things Minecraft does with experience in general, i.e. running Enchanting and Anvil operations. MFR has an Auto-Enchanter and Auto-Anvil, which will run off stored Mob Essence, and some power. That's right, no more tedious level-gathering to grind those enchantment books! With these tools, even obtaining Silk Touch is a matter of farming and patience. 25. Is the farm complete? In a basic form. You can still experiment with Mushrooms and Netherwart (hint: works with a Planter, but requires manual placement of the necessary soils). You can scale everything up and try to build an especially elegant setup. Try to make it zero-maintenance, which will likely involve a stack of DSUs and maybe an early ME network. There is so much to tinker with that it will keep you occupied for a while, if you like it to. 26. Are we finally done now? Not at all. But this guide has reached its end. I could write a whole book about Tekkit progression, and it would not be a thin one. But as nobody is paying me for it, and I'm also mostly re-telling information shared by others, let's leave it at this starter guide. You should have an idea about operations now, and the next progression steps will come rather naturally. Your long-term goals will be obtaining and mastering a Modular Powersuit, making a spaceship and flying to the Moon and Mars, creating a sophisticated storage network with Applied Energistics, and much more. You will upsize your Reactor, maybe add some impressive Turbines. A Laser Drill will eventually flood your storage with limitless ores. Set your own goals, make your own achievements, find out about the little awesome things you can do. And of course the big awesome things, too. And most importantly: Have fun doing it.

    I will be personally cracking down on backseat modding. Let me copy paste my statement from a particularly bad thread here: How about everyone stop frothing at the mouth and scrambling over each other to keep being redundant? We have this thing called the "report" button, and I'm tired of seeing pages and pages of people ignoring it to play undeputized sheriff in every goddamn thread.

    Kitty Jail 2: You Can (not) Escape

    I'm a bad man... Playing dwarf fortress, got myself a fortress with a vampire I know about. He's hurt from his epic battle fighting a wereelk and I've got him in the hospital to act as a training dummy for my unskilled doctors. Because he's been on military station for the past 2 years he's a might bit thirsty. So he keeps trying to make his way to the dormitory where the poor unsuspecting fortressmates are leaving their necks unguarded. But since he's hurt my doctors keep catching him half way there and dragging him back to the hospital area. And I can't stop laughing at the poor bloodsucker.

    Custom Server tutorial

    A few people have been asking about this, so I thought I'd do a basic, step by step tutorial on how to build a server for you custom modpack. To make it even easier, I have done the tricky stuff for you! Step One Grab the base server files from here which correspond to your Minecraft version: MC Version - Cauldron Version *Links removed* Unzip the file, create a new folder called 'MyServerNameHere'. Copy the unzipped files into the new folder. Minecraft Forge now requires the minecraft_server.jar as well. This has been included in the zips above but don't get freaked out because it doesn't appear in the screenshots below! Step Two So you got your pack right? What you need from it are the mods, coremods and config folders. If you have Flan's mod, you need the Flans folder as well. Copy them over into the 'MyServerNameHere' folder. It should now look like this: Reminder! In 1.6+ NO mods go in the coremods folder! Everything goes in the mods folder! For this, I have used the example of my pack, Yogcraft Extreme. Step Three This is an important step. You MUST delete all client side mods from the coremods and mods folders. This includes any NEI plugins from mods, any Voxel mods and Inventory Tweaks. This also includes Dynamic Lights, Custom LAN Ports, Optifine, any minimap mods and GUI API. Only mods that actually add content to the game need to be included. Otherwise, bin it! Step Four The pack is now done! Just run the launch.bat file and hey presto, it all works! Errors Most errors when running the server or playing the server can be fixed with a simple update. A common problem with Voxel Mods is if another mod is out of date, it will crash upon disconnecting from the server. Whatever that mod is, update it to its latest version for the version of MC you are using. I intend to update this as necessary, so if you have any other bugs/errors, post them below and I will endeavour to help you.

    I've finally got a good enough replacement for plug.dj. It's not perfect, but it's easily the best one I've found now that it's been improved. https://www.dubtrack.fm/join/kitty-jail_145808039340042 Come one, come all, come on and slam. The system is a bit weird, but it works. You can queue songs directly into "your queue" Then you join the DJ queue, and they'll play You can also make playlists and dump them into your queue

    Kitty Jail 2: You Can (not) Escape

    Alright guys, the Official Kitty Jail Tekkit Legends server is officially OPEN. Rules: Be cool. Don't grief, steal, etc. I neither want nor expect to have to make some exhaustive list of rules. The server address is: spence.mooo.com (No, that's not my name, I just borrowed the address.) Things to note: I have left mobgriefing enabled, but I, (or an op), will compensate/refund you if exessssssive damages are caused by this, (IE: creeper in your machine room.)All chunk-loading is enabled, but please keep it reasonable, as the server isn't super duper powerful. Please no more than one or two chunkloading devices per person.PvP is enabled.The server difficulty is set to Normal.The server should be on 24/7, but if anything happens to it, let me know either here or on Steam, and I'll fix it ASAP.I have made a few custom config file tweaks, the significant ones are listed below: Enjoy!

    Kitty Jail 2: You Can (not) Escape

    So. I have the computer I want on the screen here. All the parts, it's all there. I have the money, and I have no further commitments coming up that I want to keep it for. Why haven't I clicked "order" yet? Because for the same money, I can buy two used cars* (A '97 Opel/Vauxhal Astra convertible, and an '01 Volkswagen Polo, if you were interested). That's quite a bit of money. Which is very scary. Gonna do it anyway! But it's scary! * Why two used cars? Why not one more expensive used car? Because that's not how my brain works! EDIT: Just did it! It's gonna be built soon.

    This topic contains the most common problems and fixes knows for attack of the b team! There is also a small> tutorial on how to read error logs and you might be able to figure out your self whats wrong with your game! And since a short time we are also showing the >known problems of this modpack! Note to your self: This is not the place to report new problems!! Use the Bug Reports! MOD EDIT: Do not come in here posting "help, my launcher doesn't work!" "the modpack doesn't work!". All issues you're experiencing are reported on the Bug Reports only. new users ignoring this may get tempbanned. - Munaus Please note that every PC is different and a fix stated here may not be the fix for you. The fixes here are fixes that worked for me and my friends or get reported to me as a fix. This topic Its a work in progress and i will keep adding more fixes on the way. Let's get started!! Issue: Out Of memory. Cause: This is caused because there is not enough memory allocated to the launcher. Fix: To fix this issue you need to allocate more memory to your launcher. Its recommended to have at least 1,5/2GB for this modpack. Make sure you do not go over 4 GB, java starts running slower and may crash. How to add more RAM: Click on the cog at the top right on the launcher. Issue: Can't add more then 1GB of RAM to the launcher. Cause: 1.) Not a 64Bit java installed (Or having an older version of 32Bit installed) 2.) Not enough RAM in your PC. Fix: 1.) Install a 64 bit version of java (http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp ).Or uninstall the 32Bit version. 2.) Upgrade your PC with more RAM. Issue: Mod pack wont update/download. Cause: Most of the time a anti-virus software blocking the download Fix: 1.) Update you java to the most recent version. 2.)Make sure no (parental) software if blocking the download (Virus scanner/Net nanny) 3.) Keep trying. Issue: Failed to download <some file> Cause: Security software, internet connection interruption Fix: Disable security software temporarily, if it works, add the base url to exceptions (http://resources.download.minecraft.net/0f/0f for example has a base url of minecraft.net) (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Game wont update past 1.0.8 Cause: Outdated java.(Some mods don't support the older java versions) Fix: Update java and make sure you get the right version (64 or 32 Bit) and you delete all old version of java. (If the client can chose between and up-to-date 32 bit version of an outdated 64 bit version it will take the 64 bit one. (Thanks to: ArabicSnowman) Issue: No mobs spawning Cause: Mob limit hit. Fix: this can be solved by typing the command /cofh killall Or change your difficulty to peaceful briefly so hostile mobs despawn. (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: IndexOutOfBoundsException Error Cause: Related to a Config being corrupt issue. Fix: Resetting the modpack. The error in the log: (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Crash on mojang screen. Cause: Various causes know. (Can basically be anything) 1.) Outdated java 2.) Fail in mapwriter config. (check how to read a error log down here) Fix: I am naming some different fixes here. If this did not work for you make a issue on the issue tracker don't forget to add the log ( %appdata%/.technic/logs ) 1.) Update java. ( http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp ). 2.) Go to the location of the mapwriter you find in the error log. and delete the file (make a backup) 3.)There are many reason this could happen. try to reset the modpack (You will lose custom settings) 4.) if that did not help make an issue repport here And include an errorlog Issue: Server/Client crashes when you joins a server/load the world Cause: Depends on the error log. most common reason I have seen is because of an mod item that crashes the world. (Check the how to read an error log tutorial down here) Fix: the fix for an block incompatibility. (the following example is for the oven from "mrcrayfish furniture mod" but it also works for the DNA Breeder.) Go into the mods folder then to the config folder, open up the cfm.cfg file and change the line: I:BlockOven=854 to I:BlockOven=Which should delete the oven from you world the next time you load it, (Thanks to Kr0nZ) Fix 2: you will have to open up your map in mcedit and remove the block manually. Issue: Server/Client crashes when you joins a server/load the world ( StructureStart issue) Cause: Depends on the error log. (Check the how to read an error log tutorial down here)This one is for the following issue: at net.minecraft.world.gen.structure.StructureStart.func_75068_a(StructureStart.java:47) at net.minecraft.world.gen.structure.MapGenStructure.func_75051_a(MapGenStructure.java:81) Fix 1: Update the game to version 1.0.12a If you have done that, And the issue is still there or started there, go tough the following steps: Shut off server/game.go to the world save folder.Go into the data folder.Delete BOPVillage.dat and villages.dat.Issue still there? Try Fix 2.Fix 2: >Check the post here below (#4) (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Says it is missing microblocks Cause: Version mismatch between client and server Fix: Find out what version of the modpack the server is running and set the client to it. (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Minimap losing textures Cause: went into cave mode Fix: press ; (semi-colon) in-game (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Hunger Bar randomly depletes very quicklyCause: UnknownFix: Relog (Generally fixes the issue 99% of the time) (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Saves worlds disappearing. Cause: unknown? Fix: Back-up the world save folder from .technicmodpacksattack-of-the-bteamsaves Create a new world with the exact same name, it may not start you off in a familiar area If it does not - go to where your base would be, if it isn't there, continue to follow instructions Copy the level.dat from the newly generated world, most likely under the world save name followed by a hyphen under the saves folder mentioned previously, into the old worlds folder. Note: Having two worlds with the exact same name can be a bit confusing, ensure you load into the correct world if two now appear with the same name Note: Doing these instructions without providing the same world seed will cause chunks to no longer properly line-up (Thanks to kalbintion) Issue: Mapwiter file corrupt (see >this to see if you have that error). Cause: unknown. Fix: Go to the location of the mapwriter you find in the error log. and delete the file (make a backup) and let it regenerate by the client. Be aware: There are 2 different locations where the file can be Version 1: C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/.technic/modpacks/attack-of-the-bteam/saves/mapwriter_sp_worlds/<worldname>/mapwriter.cfg:1' Version 2: C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/.technic/modpacks/attack-of-the-bteam/saves/mapwriter_mp_worlds/<worldname>/mapwriter.cfg:1' Issue: Game wont load up. Cause: unknown. Fix: Start your technic launcher, select Attack of the b-team mod, and go to settings. Press "open folder", go to "mods", delete all "project red" files, install the latest build of project red (32 i think) from here and pop all the .jar files into the "mods" folder!

    Kitty Jail 2: You Can (not) Escape

    He looks like a greasy haired pimply faced emo teenager with daddy issues. The tortured by a pull to the light side angle is kinda interesting but just screams eventual redemption death. Probably a shaky redemption halfway through EP 9 and a sacrifice play to beat the real badguy. Not quite the full Vader, just a confused kid who was deep down a good guy all along. As for his likely cousin, I'm guessing daddy luke tries to be yoda and keeps it from her until he has to sacrifice himself in EP8 or early EP9. Part of me wants to see michael bay direct 9 just so we can see the first order modify a whole star system to unite and transform into totally-not-Unicron. But my gut tells me an invasion of the galaxy by twisted horrors from the nether regions of hyperspace, summoned by mr snoke, is more likely. "Behold the real true power of the dark side!" After credits scene for EP9- "Ms Skywalker. I'd like to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative."

Even then, you may be checked/or banned! 21. Keep up with the rules! They are constantly changing to fit our needs 22. If you make a tropicraft portal, or if you use one, let me know for the time being! If someone is caught breaking rules it would be highly appreciated to have a video or screen shoot(with your mouse over them so we can really see if it is them with the "block id-er") Server logs are a bit annoying and I would hate for any of my time to be wasted Removed mods- none! banned items- none! major plugins- used the server download, so just normal mods description- I had two worlds, one creative, and one survival. I wanted to start wars so me and my friends developed teams. It was so fun that we decided to make it open to the public When will the server be up? : We try to keep it up most hours of the day, and some at night (EST) this is subject to change The community- On our legit world there is a bit less roleplay but we want a friendly group on there at least, and a group also WILLING to learn as we may roleplay different than other roleplay servers as I have roleplayed for over 7 years on multiple games, apps, and other places and I like to keep things a certain way. Details needed for Whitelist/Greylist applications- Fill out this application ======Joining server application====== -player section- Minecraft username: (optional)Age: Why you want to play on this server: How you found this server: Have you been banned from other servers, if so why?: How well do you know the mods?: How often do you play?: Why do you feel you should be accepted?: I have read the rules and know I will get banned for breaking them: yes/no -Roleplay section- Role-play character's name: Character's background story: Character's age: ====================================== History: In the "creative world" we had a nuclear fallout, before switching to a more stable modpack. Evil Dan wanted to eradicate the world of its resources and is unwilling to take prisoners. The noble king shnoop, who is a dictator, was able to use this "Rebellion" to gain the support of the people and such to mount up a small army ready to take action against Dan. On the survival world we landed in a new land and we split up just like before, but Dan isn't at his former glory yet, his base still needs work compaired to the almighty dictator, who will win this war?

    Kerbal Space Program

    I recently finished the Tech Tree. The only things I have left to land on are Tylo, Bop, Pol, Dres, and Moho. I landed on Eeloo last weekend. Sadly, Sigly Kerman is stuck at Eve's North Pole after an aerobrake that turned into an aerobreak.

    BOARD RULES AND GUIDELINES

    A Note on Thread Necromancy We've been getting quite a lot of reports lately of people "necroing" old, threads, this is not actually against the forums rules. The only time you need to report a necro is if it's particularly low effort (Responding to a thread that's long long dead with nothing but "Me too" or, "help pls" etc) since that actually violates a rule. Understand that it is a faux pas to resurrect a very dead thread without good reason however and mods reserve the right to punish for lack of good sense.

    BOARD RULES AND GUIDELINES

    These common sense unwritten rules are now written because people are dumb and don't know how to behave on forums. Do not triple post, and avoid double posting - You have an edit button. USE IT. Do not BUMP threads - This is worthless and annoying and counts as a low effort post.

    Kitty Jail 2: You Can (not) Escape

    As far as debugging goes, when you try to open it, does it break easily? Can you see any signs of... tunneling? And when you knock on it, would you say it makes a "whoomp" or a "thud"?
