It’s December, which means we can say “Happy Holidays!” and you’re not allowed to get mad. So, Happy Holidays! 🎄
We’ve got some updates and changes to the servers that are worth mentioning, so we’ll go over those first. On the FTB server, we’ve introduced Mineworld, a dimension specifically crafted for quarry usage. Players are encouraged to move their quarries over to the new world, but there are no rules as to where quarries are put. If you still want to quarry in the Overworld, that’s still okay! This new dimension is a super-flat, plains biome with normal ore generation. /rtp is enabled to quickly find a spot to quarry, and we ask that players keep their spots to under 500×500. To get there, use “/warp mine”, or “/warp mineworld”.
Thanks to some new players, we’ve discovered some bugs within FTB mods, and we’ve updated the Known Bugs page accordingly. Unfortunately, all of the new bugs found don’t have an official fix, so our solutions are mostly workarounds (such as dropping an item and picking it back up again 😉 )
Continuing with FTB news, we’ve enabled the ability to teleport to coordinates for all players Trusted or above. This allows the built-in FTB Waypoint system to teleport to set Waypoints. Pretty neato! For both the Main and FTB servers, we’ve reduced the rank requirement for private warps to Commoner. Now, any player Commoner or above can use /warp pcreate to create unlimited personal, private warps.
We’ve also fixed MachineMuse recipes, so all Power Suit Armor and related components are completely craftable. We’re using the Thermal Expansion recipes, in case you were wondering. In other meta-server news, we’ve begun work on separating the Twilight Forest map from the server and placing it on a standalone server. That way, if Twilight Forest crashes, it only crashes the players within the Twilight Forest! We’re not sure if it’ll work as well as we want to, and so this functionality may never be implemented in the real FTB server. But for now, we’re working away in our development software trying to find a solution to this very unstable mod.
