I am working on getting the DW20 pack online for my server. I will be completely migrating my current whitelist to the new server, and from it appoint two ops, to supplement my and the other admin. I am getting a world generated, and will have a spawn point built. I plan to be up this weekend. I will give out the server address then.

EDIT: eculc, would you like to be the first op?
I have another op in mind, but I have to get in contact with him. The admins of the server are myself and sophiamaster. The other op I am looking at has an ign of toastytaoist.

I wouldn't have a problem with that, no.

I'd suggest the mindcrack pack, though (possibly with gregtech disabled) -- it'd have the same worldgen, but it has some additional things that are nice (advanced machines, extrabees, advanced solars) though I believe we'd be losing out on portalgun/gravitygun unless that was added in separately.

either way though, I'm excited to get started playing on the server whenever it's ready.
Um, this post feels devoid of content. Good luck?
For comparison, that means that if the cabbage guy from Avatar: The Last Airbender filled up his cart with lettuce instead, it would be about a quarter of a lethal dose.

We would also miss out on mystcraft, barring that being added seperately, though for a server that might be a good thing...
As with eculc, I'll just be happy to have a good modded server to play on (though no extra bees = sad chrispkale)

ooh, missed that. I believe we've already decided on a policy for mystcraft ages though (one for mining/quarrying, and a void age for mob-related and other farms, possibly accelerated) so it shouldn't be an issue.

Though I'm nowhere near done, I've gone ahead and opened Britannia.

You'll find the Ankh near the Morrowind entrance. Should be pretty obvious.

And the signs aren't kidding - your inventory WILL be stripped. And you'll be set in Adventure Mode.

But there's a handy chest of maps too.

Same with Vvardenfell. I added a chest of maps that almost covers the entire place.

.... Also, who put Bender on Red Mountain?

For the Britannian ones, they are in the castle. And some other places. Like your admin room. But I've still got a box of maps.

.... that I now realize will be wiped out as soon as you go through the portal. So lemme go put them in the throne room instead.

They're mostly there so that people can figure out just where the hell the Moongates take them beyond the names of cities. And to help them find places like Cove and Paws and so forth, that don't have Moongates.

As for the Vvardenfell map... it's not even close to complete. I've got three strips down the middle. The rest of it.. it's meant for y'all to grab a map and wander around the edges and finish it out.

Hey, I'm breaking your goddamn grinder as a lesson. This is why we can't have nice things.

Hope you weren't carrying anything important, Amish. It's gone now.

So.. maybe it's dealing with the Amishdmeon grinder incident that is provoking this foul response from me, but... I kinda doubt it, as I was zooming around Britannia with Rirez (who also seemed genuinely interested in the place, is familiar with Ultima and is excited for the prospects of what can be done) when he finds something ... *inside*... the wall separating Britannia from the rest of the place.

Can you guess what Rirez found?
Spoiler:

As Rirez did helpfully point out, there is no BiteMyShinyMetalAss on the whitelist


.....

Yeah. Knock it off.

Like, yesterday. Not there. Not in Vvardenfell.

My ftb server is up. miasacraft.cbouton.com. It uses DW20. I am working on getting the guilds planned. I will be working on finding the mountain home for the Mages, the Industrialists have New Iceburg, which is located at spawn. Agriculturalists will get either a plains or savanna home. Scientists will get a desert or a wasteland. Adventurers will have guildhalls in all of the cities that will eventually pop up, as well as the Cave of Masters, which I have yet to find.

Mages have Thaumcraft 3 and EE3 as their mods of choice.
Industrialists have Thermal Expansion and IndustrialCraft 2 as their mods of choice.
Agriculturists have Forestry as their mod of choice.
Scientists have RP2 and ComputerCraft as their mods of choice.
Adventurers will have Portal Gun and SoulShards as their mods of choice.

I will work on getting a list of who has signed up for which guild. Signing up from a guild does not preclude use of other mods, it just means you have focused on using the mods of choice for your guild. Each guild will come with its own perks, but for now, it will just be to help design the home city for your guild.

Re: guilds thing...I honestly don't know what category I would put myself in...I feel like parts of all of those would be necessary for me. Maybe it would be better if we just had one central area for people to build around, much like old-spawn/Pandora?

done.

I have found places for all the guilds. The guilds are what you want to work the most with. Later on, perks will be associated with guild membership. You would not be forced to use just those mods, but focus on using them first to solve your issues. What I want to see is specialization, create some experts. I want to see players working together to survive, not just run off on their own.

EDIT: Hmm, neither of my accounts seem to be whitelisted.

I'm trying to come to your server right now, infina. Is that spawn house supposed to be impossible to access? The doors keep re-shutting on me.

I shall probably join Josephine as a scientist, to likely nobody's surprise. I may be half-industralist, though. I'm still new to many of RP's more techy bits, so it'd be nice if I could be on with you, bona.

Bad news. A creeper crept up on me as I was making a generator and destroyed the bed and one of the chests. We may have lost some material in that chest, sorry. The diamonds and such are untouched, though. To make up for it, I've started a farm! And we've got more diamonds!

Edit: turns out no chests exploded. I've moved everything into a shack for now for safety.

Josephine, will you be on later? If yes, we need to plan a resource management system. Meem too, if he's got a free afternoon/evening!

I think we can just declare the base as a Robotics guild or something around the concept of automatons. It's obviously RP2 and computercraft heavy, but we take bits from other mods to do stuff they can't.
