  2. - Number of people desired: 3-4 - Active time zone and times: CST, any time (currently on leave from work; lots of free time) - Activity level (hours/day or week usually active): Accommodating - Any inactive mods/items you may have: I don't know? - Additional comments: I'm in my early 30s -- would prefer finding a group of people somewhat near my age group (-5yrs/+15yrs), if possible, but I'm pretty open.
  3. Are you looking for any particular age group? I'm looking for something like this preferably with folks near my age group (~30s).
  4. I appreciate the guidance, Mooseman9. As a new Minecraft player, and someone who's new to this whole modding scene, it has been very difficult to get information that explains the state of things in a clear, concise/informed manner. The main issue I was running into seemed to be finding information from the Technic team about what is going on with their modpacks, status, etc. Then, after spending a lot of time happily building, but somewhat frustrated to be stuck in a version of Minecraft (1.2.5) that was ~8 months old, I started looking for information on potential updates... and then Tekkit Lite was released. As a new player who is not really involved in the community, the information on what Tekkit Lite was in comparison to the now-rebranded Tekkit Classic was sparse. It didn't make sense, and left me confused about what it meant for the world I had spent time building. So, it's been a whirlwind of trying to make sense of it all. I'm very much the average consumer of content like this -- I usually don't get wrapped up in community forums, etc. but I found myself joining this one and keeping an eye on progress to see what was happening with all of it in the hopes that the path ahead would become clear. Instead it only got more confusing, and now there just seems to be drama. I really just wanted to play Tekkit with my girlfriend after seeing the amazing things the Yogscast were doing -- it is the sole reason I bought Minecraft, and now things are confusing and a bit sour. I'm probably an exception here though, as a late-comer to the Minecraft scene. Getting caught up on all this information is daunting. Anyway, thanks for not flaming me.
  5. I really wanted to explore ComputerCraft, but hadn't made it there yet. The mining turtles seemed awesome -- very cool that you got them working! I've been watching a lot of YogsCast's Tekkit series', which is how I was introduced to Tekkit in the first place, so I've seen some demonstrations of these systems with ComputerCraft, and the potential was exciting. I think we may end up starting a new world using the FTB (Feed the Beast) Ultimate modpack when it's released. I've been toying with the Mindcrack FTB pack in the meantime (until Ultimate is released), which seems like it's going to be very similar, and it's exciting how much dimension the additional mods within that add to the game in addition to all the stuff I loved about Tekkit (IC, BuildCraft, RailCraft, etc.) From what I've seen in my attempt to gather information, it appears unlikely that Tekkit Classic will get any updates. With the Minecraft Mod API coming out soon too, there's a lot of general uncertainty surrounding how the modding community will sort itself out between the "launcher wars" with Technic/Tekkit and Feed the Beast (FTB). In the long run, this new Mod API Mojang is developing will fix a lot of problems, but it seems to complicate things in the interim... (especially when it comes to choosing a modpack to play that will give you some security that it won't just be abandoned like Tekkit Classic, thereby forcing us to start over yet again).
  6. I completely agree! My g/f and I were building Isengard. It was 210 blocks high. I had a huge quarry, different ravine mining bases, a RedPower tube system, a minecart/railcraft transport system, and a sorting system. We did all of this in SMP without any cheating or creative mode, without any use of Equivalent Exchange, etc. It was a huge goal for us to finally get materials for that quarry, and figure out how to get it working, etc. ...and then all of this happened. It's a huge disappointment, but I guess it was just bad timing. :(
  7. This is pretty much my same exact situation -- g/f and I have been playing Tekkit for about a month, etc, etc. Same dilemmas. Just want you to know you're not alone here.
  8. Thank you for taking the time to explain this, thegreatpl! These things are finally starting to make sense. I only recently got into Tekkit for the first time, and was disappointed to see a departure from the Tekkit pack I was playing with when Tekkit Lite was introduced as I felt I had a lot of work/time/effort put into my world already and there seemed no way to migrate between what is now Tekkit Classic and the new Tekkit Lite. This dilemma forced me to search for alternatives, which lead me to FTB. I scoured for what information I could find on how to proceed with a choice between the two, and had learned a lot of bits and pieces about what you just posted, but your complete post helps tie all of that disparate information together so I could make a more informed decision on what to play. At this point, I'm waiting for the FTB Ultimate mod pack to be released and toying around with Mindcrack in the meantime. I love all of the things these mods do for Minecraft, but like many other people, don't want the hassle of finding and compiling all of these mods separately myself, and then having to update and maintain going forward. Having these mod packs and launchers makes it so much more accessible, and gives me the opportunity to play Minecraft in ways that I wouldn't have otherwise been able to. Thanks again for taking the time to post the information -- it really helped me and I just wanted to be sure you knew the time you took helped at least one person quite a bit. :)
  9. Will Tekkit Classic continue to be maintained and updated, or has it been deprecated in favor of Tekkit Lite? (Read: Will Tekkit Classic see a Minecraft 1.4.x/1.5 release?)
  10. I ate a sandwich. Oh, and then I farted.
