Well, this one’s going to be fun. Don’t shoot the messenger!

Hi all,

Before we get onto the juicy part of this, let’s handle staff first. As you will most likely know from our meetings, FreakyCupcake has resigned and has been replaced by Hex, who will do good. Freaky was a fantastic admin, so thanks for all your work there. As well, I will be resigning from Community Admin, but I will stay on as Lava Admin. It’s been an honour people, so thanks. I haven’t been great, but it’s been fun, so hey. My long-awaited replacement is already a great admin, and was the real reason you got those 25 days of events. Yep, you guessed it, you've probably been on the hypetrain for ages, it’s Arelic! Please be nice to her. I trust she’ll do a mighty fine job as part of our leadership team.

Now, this is the part that gets really fun. I think we’ve seen we’re not doing fantastic right now. Server numbers are down, everything’s not great. Not fun. Therefore, we’re going to go a bit out there. Now, I’ll give credit to Vatumok for a lot of this, as he’s been working with us to help get things done, so thanks a lot. What we’re planning is to replace RoF and AoD. I’ll just give that a moment to settle in. Are you alright? Good. Let’s continue.

Before you get going in the comment section with “wtf you are killing the community against our will you are not listening reeeee”, I must stress this is not completely finalised. There is every possibility we can scrap this if it goes wrong, or if there is enough reason discussed now to reverse this. However, it’s worth doing something. There’s a good few proposals in our News forum that have never came to fruition, and it’s about time one of them did. The date for shutting off RoF and AoD, if this does happen, will be a long way off, giving us a good bit of time to backtrack if necessary, and will only happen once the new server is completely ready. I should also note that the Prestige Update for RoF, well...

• The forums and Minecraft lobby are no longer festive. EscapeRestart wishes you a happy new year!

Hello!​

We know you’ve all been waiting for some news on SMP and we really can’t blame you. I can assure you that work is being done on the server every day, progress is moving along quite quickly at this point! We have so many great builders that spend a lot of time on the server and are quite frankly doing amazing work. We’re also not short on developers and a lot of our plugins are going to be custom developed to fit the needs of the server and player base. Our team is starting to function as a single unit now and you can see that morale is on the rise.

• So why is it taking so long?
The scope of the server is massive, much larger than any other SMP we’ve ever had before. Where in previous SMPs we had barely fleshed out ideas we are making sure that those ideas are fully fleshed out and perfected and that there is no lack of content. The server is the amalgamation of all our previous SMPs along with a ton of new ideas and content. It is our last chance and we absolutely can’t afford to waste it. We are not going to be setting a release date just yet but we can however deliver a feature overview and progress update.

• Why I think this server will be the best SMP we are able to make
I have read through every single thread on the forums about SMP to identify what worked and what did not with every previous SMP. I have also played on every SMP since Legends of Primordia and have personally experienced what worked and what didn’t on these servers. We have been sure to avoid all of this and have made sure there was few flaws as possible in the fundamental ideas of the server. We are also ensuring to test everything before release to prevent any bugs.

• When is SMP being released?
There will be no release date before we are 100% sure the server...

Hi!

Here are the details and things you need to know if you'd like to play this Community Driven Event hosted by me, Ogarci!

I'm currently hosting an event server for a modded minecraft experience. This server is centered around the Age of Engineering modpack by ErnstLustig!

Curse Link: https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/age-of-engineering

FTB Forum Link: https://forum.feed-the-beast.com/threads/1-10-2-age-of-engineering.223595/

"(Age of Engineering) is a tech-centered modpack with a technology tree, focus in progression and hundreds of changed (harder) recipes. This is achieved by gating progression by several blocks and items leading to the next age. The pack is divided in 15 ages, reaching the next age is awarded with an achievement and a trophy you can place. What you can do and have to do in each age to progress and reach the next age is covered in a guide (from FTB Utilities, just click the book in the top left corner).

The goal of the pack is to give a longer lasting experience than other packs, also giving the challenge to automate almost everything. It also features several lesser known mechanics from well-known mods or you have to tackle some well-known problems in a different manner as you lack either some blocks/items you would normally have or they are just too expensive at that stage of the game, the problems mostly how to automate this task or how to generate more power with the ressources I have.

This pack is heavily inspired from FTB Infinity Expert Mode, but is still very different in many ways. The goal was also to not make the recipes harder to just make them harder, but also make sense and balance recipes when two or more mods offer a different solution to a problem.

This modpack is aimed at more experienced players to look for a new challenge, but can also work...
