Starting a Minecraft Feed TheBeast server

Recommended Posts

I recently got into playing around with 'Feed the Beast' mod pack for Minecraft. After derping around on a few servers I began to miss the old ACen minecraft server.

 

Thus I decided to plan on starting my own & invite everybody from the forums. I'll probably wait til the mod pack is out of beta before starting the server, unless there's plenty of people wanting to join. The main reason for waiting is due to RedPower 2 mod having a large affect on terrain generation. I'm told RP2 has 4 major bugs to be fixed before it gets released.

 

Feed the Beast mod pack is similar to Tekkit except it has permission & support from the modders. It also has a number of additional mods.

 

How many would be intrested in joining when I get this running?

 

Info on Feed the Beast can found HERE

I keep wishing PC & Xbox could play together. Even more since I'm also looking at doing a vanilla server along with the FtB server.

 

Finally got some specifics for the server. I'm buying a new computer to act as a dedicated server. This is due to me wanting to do a 'Lets Play' series on youtube. My current computer can't handling hosting, playing, & recording all at once.

 

Computer specs that I'm looking for are 8gb Ram or more & 1TB memory. I've found 2 in my price range. After Xmas I'll possibly upgrade it to 10 maybe even 12 gb Ram. I'll start with 3gb Ram dedicated to each server & up it to 4gb after I upgrade the ram.

 

Both servers are gonna be whitelisted & I prefer offering slots to people here over letting random people join. I'll try to list more specifics on rule & such when I finally get lunch break.

Finally have news about a stable release for FtB. Assuming the world doesn't end on the 21st, we'll have it by the end of December.

 

So I'll give an update on the server rules that I've come up with so far.

 

1) PvP is enabled, but discouraged (See below)

2) No Stealing or Griefing

3) No item/ block duplication

4) No profanity

5) Pranking is allowed, but I'm still working on specific rules

6) I will create an age dedicated to the ICBM mod. Any use of ICBMs outside this age will result in a ban. Check out

to see it in action.

 

I plan to record a "Let's Play" series on both servers & put them on youtube. Hence the no profanity rule, it'd also be great if people can put signs near creations they make out in the world so I can give proper credit.

 

As a fan of Etho & many guys on the Mindcrack server, my fave vids are the pranks. I understand that not everybody enjoys having to clean up after pranks, so I'd like to set a few rules to protect people that don't want to be pranked. I'm thinking something along the line of making a 3 high by 5 long flag if you don't mind getting pranked.

 

Prank Rules

1) No Fire, Lava, TNT or variations of them (Nova catalyst, nukes, ect.)

2) FtB specific: No trapping people in other ages

 

I plan to build a PvP arena & even hold PvP events. I'd like to put it over a mob spawner (Zombie prefered). Since 1 in every 5 mobs can pick up items, we can set up something so they get pumpkin helmets & won't burn when in sunlight. FtB will have the Soulshard mod which allows you to craft mob spawners.

 

Also, DireWolf20's youtube channel is worth checking out. He's covered most of the mods that are in the FtB pack & he's on the modders private server.

Just a quick update. ETA for the vanilla server is this Wed.

 

As mentioned before the server will be whitelisted, so anybody wanting to join needs to let me know either here or on facebook.
