  5. Website: http://apocgaming.org | Technic Pack: Technic Pack Link | Discord: https://discord.gg/uctbDQb Server IP: AS.APOCGAMING.ORG (Included in the pack) Alternatively you can use the FTB or CURSE 3.1.4 Agrarian Skies version to connect to our server as well. But you will not benefit from the performance improvements of our pack. For more information on our servers, network, status, wiki's, launchers, pack pages, and more checkout our server page here: http://apocgaming.org/servers APOC is a community of gamers and a independently hosted minecraft network. We believe in offering as many choices as possible without restricting gameplay. If you're a griefer, raider, like to pvp, or pve, or build stuff in peace, or join a faction and town and conquer your enemies. All of that and more is possible on APOC. APOC hosts over a dozen minecraft servers and grows more everyday. So even if you get bored with one server we have plenty more to offer afterwards. Meet friends and play together across our vast minecraft network. We have staff members online 24/7 across the whole network that answer tickets and website chat frequently. If you have a problem please report it and we will try our best to help you! APOC does skyblock differently: Custom Islands: We made our own custom designed islands providing you with more space, more blocks, more light, and more dirt and trees to begin with. Along with organizing your starting items into 2 chests. No Pay 2 Win: We do not believe in throwing money at the server and instantly beating the game. Instead we believe in throwing votes at the server to get a tiny boost. None of our server ranks provide game breaking benefits. A lot of our purchasable rank perks can be earned for free by voting. By voting for our network you not only get store credit to get free ranks and kits you also get paid in economy, experience, diamonds, and reward bags in game! No Unbannable Items: If we ban an item it is banned for good. We do not believe in dangling a banned item in someones face unless they donate. The only items we ban on this server are Chunk Loaders of any kind. Chunk Loading causes stress on the server and also continues to load islands that have machines running that uses server resources when no one is using them. Banning these is to ensure server performance for everyone. Protected Islands: Our islands have a 100x100 protected radius with your name slapped on it. You are welcome to merge islands with friends and share up to 4 people. Anyone who comes to your island cannot grief, raid, or pvp anyone but you can pvp them. Our skyblock plugin works perfectly with the Hardcore Quest Mod. Admin Shops: Earn economy by farming, mining, digging, smelting, repairing, crafting, brewing, enchanting, killing mobs, killing players, being online, voting, and more! And you can use this money to head to the admin shops in spawn and stock up on things you need. Player Shops: When the admin shops are too pricey (we do that on purpose) you can make your own player shop by buying a plot in spawn. Building your shop how you want it and pricing your items how you want it. 24/7 Uptime: Our servers have ZERO downtime. This is achieved by having a deadlock/crashproof server. Our server constantly checks for laggy areas in the world and reports them. Any crash that happens it localizes the crash event to that chunk so it only effects the players within it and everyone else can continue playing like nothing happened. It also detects deadlocks and attempts to recover from them or restart the server which only takes 2-5 minutes. That is the most downtime you will see from this server. 24/7 Staff Support: We have active staff on APOC all day and night. Even if they are not currently on your server we have many staff who are always online on teamspeak and the website just waiting to help out whenever someone needs it. Logging into teamspeak or throwing us a support ticket on the website is the best way to get any type of support for the server or your client. Performance Mods: Not only did we port the modpack to technic we also tuned it with performance mods as well. You will definitely see a performance boost in FPS and chunk load speed when using our pack. Compressed Mod Textures: Every mod in modpacks has their own texture files, in this port we have extracted all of those textures, compressed them, and then re-archived them back into the mod to use less memory on the client. Voting & Rewards: Voting n our network is loaded with benefits from instant rewards like exp/economy/diamonds/+more to ranking up and unlocking commands/plugins/homes and much more. For each vote you get instant rewards which vary from server to server. For each vote you count towards your voting rank which is displayed on your name tag. The higher your rank goes the more you unlock. Vote ranks give giant bonuses the higher you go. From higher homes to complete ore and plugin boost kits. Reviews: Like our servers?

    Launcher Won't Open

    Hello, I have recently found a glitch where technic launcher will not open. I run it, but it does not create a .technic folder or open. Minecraft works perfectly fine and I found out it was something to do with java. I have tried reinstalling java and restarting my computer, virus scans, reinstalling technic, but nothing works. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit if it helps. Thanks. (Ill attach the java errors) Here's the text information. The program mmc.exe version 6.1.7601.23892 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel. Process ID: 1e50 Start Time: 01d47e0a62f4ddd3 Termination Time: 22 Application Path: C:\windows\system32\mmc.exe Report Id: b8dfe13d-e9fd-11e8-a761-4c72b9081cf7 The picture of it is attached.

    SOMEONE PLEASE HELP

    Hello! So I have used technic for years on computer to computer. Currently I'm on an ASUS windows 10 laptop. Lately I have been wanting to use the launcher to play hexxit, tekkit, etc.... But for a couple hours I have ran into a HUGE roadblock. Every time I load up the launcher and proceed to run tekkit or something the launcher will close and proceed to launch the modpack (as it should) but it just remains at a white screen. Sometimes the modpacks wont load at all! This will happen with the Minecraft launcher as well, I go to load Minecraft and it either closes or crashes. furthermore the Feed The Beast launcher will do the same as well. honestly this is getting on my nerves! For the past couple hours I have searched far and wide for a solution. YouTube, this forum, reddit, google search, redownloading, downloading different java software, updating my drivers, and so on. apparently 3 years back people were having the same problems as me but they managed to fix there's. I don't understand what I am missing or failing to understand. If there is any one out there who can help me? do not hesitate to respond! I will gladly co operate in any way necessary! Get back to me as soon as possible!
  8. So I was making a server (as you do) and everything was fine and dandy until I went onto it with mods, server doesn't crash, but my modpack does! https://www.dropbox.com/s/l8fl88fw8uzjebg/crash-2018-11-02_21.33.07-client.txt?dl=1
  9. So I've been trying to open the technic launcher but it won't load past the logo.

    Launcher Won't Open

    While downloading the Technic launcher installer multiple times, each time the launcher won't pop up. It is not shown anywhere on my screen, nor is there any option for it on my taskbar. The only thing that is shown is the installer on my desktop and in my downloads file, and it is not shown in the control panel. I've been wanting to play some mod packs, especially when it's Winter Break currently.

Everything i've tried : Get 64x Java Re-install modpack Re-install Technic Launcher (completely) Updated Graphics card drivers Re-started PC Allocating more RAM to Technic Launcher My crash log is the ".txt" file i included at the bottom, Don't worry, no viruses lol.

    My Modpack Is Not working

    Is this a bug? I don't know... feel free to move the forum. But I created a mudpack. I put it in drobox and I made it on the Technic Platform. When I search it on the technic launcher I install it, and click play. When Minecraft opens its just vanilla. It does not have a mods option, so its not running forge or something... I have a mods folder, I included modpack.jar, But I have done it a few times (a lot) and it still runs as vanilla. The Mod Pack is called Vanilla Revised and I just put a bunch of client mods in there for stuff. Here is the link to the dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/afx5v05b7ymiahv/Vanilla Revised.zip?dl=1 Can someone look at it for me please and tell me what is wrong? Thx.

    Modpack with Nevermine2

    Hey guys, anyone got a good modpack base on nevermine2 with a server download ?
  18. I am trying to create a custom modpack but everytime I try putting in the direct download link in the Modpack Location prompts me with an error "The Modpack Location you entered is not a valid location.". I've tried uploading it one dropbox, fortunately it works, but with one drive it doesn't work. With onedrive i can easily edit the mods as i can drag the mods in the zip file in one drive, where as with dropbox, i have to reupload the whole thing from scratch everytime i want to add single mod, and that takes HOURS! I can get the direct download link from one drive by clicking embed on the file from onedrive and copying the link, and replace embed with download, it works when i put the link in my browser, but technic is not accepting the link for some reason, even though it's a direct download. Any suggestions?
  19. None of the logs from the server show anything out of the ordinary, But whenever I try to join my server, I move around for about 5-10 seconds, and then it says a fatal error occured. The only thing I believe to be peculiar in the logs are in my latest.log folder for the client, where this is printed- [17:27:26] [Client thread/ERROR]: Can't ping [IP]: Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.codec.DecoderException: com.google.gson.JsonSyntaxException: Expected status to be a JsonObject, was "Ser...g." This has never been a problem before, My friends on different networks cant even connect. i have tried to report forward twice, to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  20. Hello, my game after I create new world and start it when it load it crashes and says this "A fatal error has been occured, this connection is terminated ". This happens in singleplayer and multiplayer. Modpack im playing "Mianite reborn" Does somebody has a solution
