The server is crashing because of Factorization and the Mixer.

To continue the discussion of an update to Minecraft 1.5, I'd like to seriously consider:
  1. Moving straight to Minecraft 1.5.1.
  2. Not installing RedPower2.
  3. Installing Minefactory Reloaded as a replacement for RP2 (although not yet tested)
  4. Resetting all chunks that have not been marked "keep" (to be implemented)
  5. Changing the biome generator to Biomes o' Plenty.
  6. Possibly install Natura and other world generation mods.

This would result in jagged borders around kept chunks, but these can be manually fixed later on.

Aside from that issue, the advantages would be:
  • If you want to start fresh, don't mark your chunks as "keep" -- you'll begin anew.
  • If you have ongoing builds, they will continue as normal and you can continue where you have left off.
  • Everyone gets mod updates for 1.5, as well as the updates added in vanilla 1.5.
  • Totally brand new biomes, new terrain -- it'd be like exploring an entirely new world.

Please vote on the poll on this thread.

If we decide to go ahead with this, there would likely be a 1-2 week lead time to allow you to mark any chunks to be kept. This would be announced on, the launcher, and Facebook.

We may want to update to the newest GregTech version (for 1.4) but fusion coils have become massively cheaper in the newer versions. Therefore, Fluttermine has suggested a "refund recipe" consisting of:
  • 4x highly advanced machine blocks
  • 1x superconductor
  • 1x energy flow circuit
  • 2x tesla coils
  • 1x iridium neutron reflector plate

The idea is that, before the update, you'd craft your fusion coil block into an intermediary item. After the update, a recipe is made (and the previous one removed) so that you can convert your intermediary item into the items above.

As you're all know, we're back in the update limbo where we can't update to the newer version of Minecraft because of one lady, author of RedPower2. RP2 isn't available for 1.5 (yet).

Therefore we have three primary choices:
  1. Wait for RedPower2, then update to 1.5 (or 1.6) (edit: this is likely what we are going with)
  2. Lose RedPower2 and update now to 1.5
  3. Reset the worlds and update to 1.5 (& transfer builds from 1.4 to 1.5)

There's a poll on this thread; please vote on all choices that you are OK with.

The server has been restarted. It was frozen because of an infinite loop in Factorization.


It the server freezes again, then we have a problem on our hands.

Update 16 requires a client update. You will be prompted to install upon logging in with the launcher.
  • Fossils/Archaeology has been installed.
    • Its ore can only be found in vanilla biomes.

  • Factorization has been installed!
    • The wraith lighter has been disabled because of its abusive properties. For that reason, there will be an alternate method to obtain wraith lights.

  • PlayBlock (the media player) has been updated to make it more successful at installing the necessary libraries.
  • The mining world has been reset as previously promised.

A client update is required for update 15.
  • Updated PlayBlock (our movie player mod) to v1.2.0.
    • You should now be able to install VLC without much trouble, in theory.

  • Changed the ID of IC2 Greg's Lighting flood lights and prevented their crafting, as the flood lights kept crashing.

Please aware that tomorrow (5/11/2013, Pacific time), the following is planned:
  • The mining world will DEFINITELY be reset.
  • The dinosaurs mod be added if we can get it to work.

Also of note, in the near future:
  • GregTech may be updated.
