SFT Modded / [Future] Suggest Event Servers!
Jun 26, 2020, 06:37 AM
This is still a ways out, but feel free to suggest/discuss event servers here!

What we are looking for: A pack we can have for a weekend to a month. Different than traditional/longstanding servers in at least one significant way.

Confirmed we will have these:
Modded UHC
A very hard pack. Not sure which one yet.

Considering:

Lost Islands
Throwback skyblock 1.7
B-Team
Throwback overworld 1.6
Enigmatica 2 Expert
As the HARD pack
Roguelike Adventures and Dungeons
adventuring pack. DRAGONS
Texxit
RLCraft
FTB Regrowth
"So basically, in this modpack, you start out in a fresh new world, where the whole world is a like a baron planet, where dirt is somewhat rare (You have to go mining to find your first set of dirt) and this modpack has a questbook to guide you through the modpack too if you dont know what to do. You start from the absolute beginning, where your main focus is trying to get ores, which can be made through botania, botania is a very important mod to progress in this modpack. It includes special types of farming etc. This modpack basically goes through magical and rustic kinds of mods, you could say its kind of like real life where you get to explore different things, because you can see whats in the ocean, but you have to have proper equipment otherwise your air bubbles go down super fast. There are some broken down structures, and treasure maps you can get to find different things. I havent gotten super far, but I got most of the general things like second to highest tier crop farms, and what I can say from this is that it can be very grind-like. You can build things to make the crops grow faster and all, heck you could work on other things while your farm grows and stuff like that, Its a really fun modpack, can be addictive to people, but some people may not feel the same, I just like how its primary focus is, you must build defense first and then start doing things"


Technical garbage:
Any 1.6.X server will be IP whitelisted. Any 1.7.X server will not be added to the bungee. Any 1.8+ server can be added to the bungee. Easier versions: 1.6.4 (B-Team forge version), 1.7.10 (Lost Island forge version), 1.8.8 (Vanilla), 1.12.2 (Enigmatica 2 forge version)

SFT Modded / [Modded] Future Plans
Jun 20, 2020, 08:01 AM
TLDR: We will be having a Stoneblock 2 server soon, and an MC Eternal server soon after that.

Long term we want to have a small handful of servers that cover a large section of the beauties that modded has to offer. A skyblock, and an overworld, and occasionally some other more specialty ones. Since these packs need to stay awhile, we are thinking MC Eternal for the overworld pack, and Stoneblock 2 for the skyblock pack. If you have some reason why those don't work, please let us know! Much of the details on how/when are in the FAQ.

Long term servers:
Skyblock: Stoneblock 2
Overworld: MC Eternal
Event Servers
This would be things modpacks want to explore/throwbacks. Some examples of things that could be an event server:
  • Modded UHC
  • B-Team
  • Lost Islands
  • Enigmatica 2 Expert (or other ridiculously hard pack)
  • Roguelike Adventures and Dungeons
  • Texxit?
  • RLCraft?

On these servers You will earn prestige points, which can be redeemed to skip the early game on future event servers.
Event World
This is a shared space for all of participating servers (currently modded and pix) to play events together and win prizes on a server of their choice! More details in Stoneblock's release date announcement.

FAQ:

Why Stoneblock 2?
Although it is an older 1.12 and most people have completed it, everyone seemed to love it and siad they would be willing to play again.

Why MC Eternal?
A pack with loads of content, looks great so far, getting media attention right now, has adventuring elements as well, which many of you said you wanted in the previous poll.

What about The 1.7.10 Pack?
This pack will get phased out. I hate putting an axe above it, but more than that I will be honest with you, and you deserve to know.

What about Enigmatica 2?
This pack will get phased out. I hate putting an axe above it, but more than that I will be honest with you, and you deserve to know. You will get prestige points for you uptime/base here (due to the fact that it was up so short). Details to come later.

When will they be axed?
Whenever they become empty, or 2 weeks after Stoneblocks release, whatever is later. We reserve the right to push this out, although we will not make it sooner. Ask one week after Stoneblock's release and we will give you guys final dates.

Which will get launched first?
Stoneblock 2, followed by MC Eternal. This is so we have a skyblock and an overworld pack up at once.

When will Stoneblock launch?
Soon. We will begin hype one week before by mentioning modded player on our discord and with a front page announcement. Launch will be midday on a Saturday.

When will MC Eternal get launched?
After both Enigma and 1710 are gone, and once it is ready.

With the upcoming pixelmon update (front page announcement after this discussion) we have a couple options for what to do.
What we are doing:
  • New simple spawn that lets new players know of the gyms
  • Gym touchups
  • Gen 8 Pokemon
  • Added backpacks!
  • Update to pixelmon generations 8.0.0
  • More integration with the rest of modded, such as cross-server events!
Whether or not to reset for this update is still to be decided, and we want YOUR input.
Options:
No Reset
Inventory, base and pokemon stay as is.
Pros
  • New players dont lose anything!
Cons
  • Returning players have little to do
  • Not taking full advantage of update (as a couple legandaries had spawn mechanic changes)
Addition of a hard mode (similar to nuzlocke)
Inventory, base and pokemon stay as is, but you can switch to hard mode whenever you want, and that swaps to your hard set of pokemon. In hard mode things would be harder such as having quests for legandaries, limited pc/healer use, dynamic leveling, ect. Completing all of the gyms in hard mode would give some sort of prize.
Pros
  • Players don't lose anything!
  • Those who do want to reset are on at the same level as everyone else in hard mode.
  • Can take full advantage of update in hard mode
Cons
  • Some people may not like the additional challenge
Optional Reset
Optional base reset, optional inventory reset, optional pokemon reset, optional pokdex reset.
Pros
  • Would give people who want to reset more to do
Cons
  • Players who do choose to reset would be behind those who decided not to reset
  • Throws entire economy for a loop 'cause old legends that have new spawn mechanics will still be in rotation
  • Not taking full advantage of update (as a couple legandaries had spawn mechanic changes)
Full reset
World, inventories, pokemon all reset
Pros
  • Would give people more to do
  • Would allow everyone to start at the same point
Cons
  • Those who have been playing recently lose everything
  • Just feels bad to lose everything
  • Old players lose their bases (some will not be happy about this)

So, what are your thoughts? Post below with which you would like to see and why.

NOTE: Even if you have not played modpacks before, but are willing to give it a try, please fill out this poll to the best of your knowledge, if you don't know the answer to a question, that's fine too.

Unfortunately due to the complex nature in the organization of this poll, please post your response below rather than just checking a box. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but the increased value of having consolations between different answers warrants the extra effort both on my side, and yours. If you want to respond anonymously, dm me, and I will put a post here.
Questions:
[b]Do you like skyblock or overworld? [/b]
[b]Do you like quests? [/b]
[b]Do you like the grind? [/b]
[b]Do you want a separate server where your skills can be put to the test, but you still have your main base? [/b]
[b]How many GB of RAM do you have? [/b]
[b]Do you like tech? [/b]
[b]Do you like magic? [/b]
[b]Do you like exploring/adventuring? [/b]
[b]How hard of a modpack do you want? [/b]
[b]How much modded experince do you have? [/b]


Explanation of intent of questions:
Do you like skyblock or overworld? This question is trying to figure out which of the two modes do you prefer, or are you indifferent to which mode.
Do you like quests? Question is self-explanatory
Do you like the grind? Some mod packs require an insane amount of repetitive, tedious actions in order to succeed. Do you like that?
Do you want a separate server where your skills can be put to the test, but you still have your main base? Question is self-explanatory
How many GB of RAM do you have? Question is self-explanatory
Do you like tech? Question is self-explanatory
Do you like magic? Question is self-explanatory
Do you like exploring/adventuring? Question is self-explanatory. DISCLAIMER: This is hard to do in a multiplayer environment.
How hard of a modpack do you want? Question is trying to get at how hard do you want it? Some packs aim to give that vanilla+ experience (like our pixelmon server), others try to give a modded experience, others seek to challenge your skills by changing all crafting recipes so it takes a stack of cobblestone just to make one furnace. How hard do you want?
How much modded experience do you have? This can range from I have never played modded before, but am willing to try it, to I am a modded master and know almost any mod you throw at me.


Example response:
Do you like skyblock or overworld? I prefer skyblock, but I am willing to play an overworld pack
Do you like quests? Although I prefer quests, I don't need them.
Do you like the grind? Frankly no.
Do you want a separate server where your skills can be put to the test, but you still have your main base? Yes. I love getting challenged, but there are also times I just want to chill and make a really cool system not worrying about resources.
How many GB of RAM do you have? 32GB
Do you like tech? Yes, and can't really live without it
Do you like magic? Yes, but I can live without it on a normal pack, I do enjoy tinkering with it though and seeing how cool it is. The animations of astral sorcery are on point.
Do you like exploring/adventuring? Eh. Can live without.
How hard of a modpack do you want? I want both a normal modpack experience and a crazy hard one
How much modded experience do you have? I know a good deal of mods, but there are still some that I would like to get into.

    There is a ton of new content coming to modded! Starting with the release of Enigmatic 2. If you are someone who never got into modded because of the learning curve, this pack walks you through it! Even if you are returning modded veteran, this pack will force you to take a different approach to modded, and may spice up your experience. Stay tuned! More details will be added soon.


    Countdown here

    Features include
    - bungee (woo!)
    - a lobby you join to (no more disconnecting for a restart)
    - minigames to play in the lobby to pass time
    - global messaging and parties (message and talk with your part no matter which server they are on!)
    - release of our first rotation pack, Enigmatica 2 mode (on twitch launcher or multimc)
    - a link to pix to bring the modded community together!
    - our own eventworld with a TON of games to play (thanks tow and sasha for allowing us to use one of yours)


    P.S. Sorry about the late announcement, but we have just been so busy working on the server, we totally forgot to announce in detail ahead of time. If you want to stay in the loop about what is coming to modded, get the Modded Player rank and talk in #modded-feedback on our discord

    B-Team / [B-Team] How to fix skins on B-Team
    Feb 18, 2018, 05:32 PM
    Fix using a mod: (just add to your mods folder for B-Team)
    https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/lumy-skin-patch
    I have looked at the code of the oldest version and it looks good, but I have no control over this and it is not affiliated with SFT. If you want instructions on how to install specifically per platform dm me on discord. If you are having problems with this mod dm me on discord I can get you in contact with the mod's author.


    My solution: (requires admin access)
    Don't trust me to reroute traffic from your computer? https://github.com/blalp/replacement-for-minecraft-lagacy-skin-servers run the server yourself if you want to.

    How to fix skins:
    For Windows:
            Close your broswer and open (you may have to shutoff antivirus for this step). Start Menu -> Notepad -> Right Click -> Open as Administrator and open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts With notepad as Admin and add this on a new line at the end 158.69.202.67      skins.minecraft.net DO NOT ADD A # AT THE BEGINNING. Then save. This checks to see when minecraft is trying to go to skins.minecraft.net and tells it to go to the IP address "158.69.202.67" instead.
            Now open file explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ then delete the hosts that isnt a text file. Then at the top of that window go to View -> Options. Then the View tab on that dialog box. The uncheck Hide extensions for known file types. Then hit apply. Righ click on hosts.txt then rename "hosts.txt" to "hosts".
            Start your antivirus if  you stopped it.
            Now restart minecraft :smiley:
    For linux:
            execute sudo iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -d skins.minecraft.net -j DNAT --to-destination 158.69.202.67        execute sudo sh -c 'iptables-save > /etc/iptables/mc_skins.rules'        google your distrubiotn of linux and how to execute a command at startup. execute this. iptables-restore < /etc/iptables/mc_skins.rules Alterativly you could write a bash script iptables-restore < /etc/iptables/mc_skins.rules && java -jar ./TechnicLauncher.jar
    for mac:
            Open terminal as Administrator and execute sudo nano /etc/hosts and add this on the end 158.69.202.67     skins.minecraft.net DO NOT ADD A # AT THE BEGINING. This checks to see when minecraft is trying to go to "skins.minecraft.net" and tells it to go to the IP address "158.69.202.67" instead. Control + x then y then enter.
            Now restart minecraft :smiley:
            If it doesnt work try executing sudo dscacheutil -flushcache in terminal

    Thanks to Mord3005, jedidude84, werewolfxx5 for testing

    I am stepping back (doing less, yet still being here for emergencies) in order to make time for my own projects and to plan for my future without the feeling that I could/should be helping you guys instead. The breakdown of what will happen to the various servers day-to-day that I am owner on is below:
    Custom plugins for all servers:
    > I am teaching how my custom plugins work to @BluetigerESW and will teach @darknuju
    Lost Sky:
    > @ceddy24 is getting owner he will manage staff/players from in-game
    > If you need to be removed from an island, i am still the one to message, yet I will probably be making this an admin+ ability sometime
    B-Team:
    > @Mord3005 is getting owner he will manage staff/players from in-game
    > If any experienced java people want to help out of bteam, message @Towelie with your skill level, an example, and any mc related experience, and sft ranks

    I will be checking my discord, but not forums. So if you do want to contact me in the case of an emergency, use discord.
    14
    When DNA breeders were originally banned they did not need to be as the auto eject upgrade was an element that was needed in order to crash the server. That being said if someone does find a crash with these items pls get in contact with me. Preferably discord or talk to staff in-game. Gene shop closed as no longer needed. Shoutout to @xQuicScope and @Mord3005 quic tested, mord was willing to.
    15
    There are various things to fix/add on skyfactory and I want to do them in order that best reflects what you guys want. PLEASE suggest other additions/modifications in pms with me on forums, or discord (can be found on the official sft discord at sftmc.org/chat). You can also suggest changes here, but I would prefer to discuss things in pm first then open it up here so we can discuss feasibility and other factors in pms.
    16
    Vote on your top two favorite names! There will be a final round!
    17
    some ideas so far:
    LostFactory - Alpha
    Skyfactory - ftb ppl
    Lost Islands v2 -blalp
    SkyLostFactory, The Lost Factory - Rose2247
    TheLostSky - IiRr22Bb
    Heaven - GotAnError
    Sky Islands - werewolf
    Floaty Mc Floatface - Towelie

    something else? request in the post this list will be updated.

    Ever wanted your own prefix? Something to stand out from the normal easily obtainable ranks? Say hello to Custom Prefixes!
    Now available in the premium shop! It works by you (donator) requesting a prefix. Then a staff (Mod+) accepting the prefix.
    Would you be interested in a one-time use custom prefix package?

    Here are the basic criteria that the staff are using.
    • Must be surrounded with some sort of brackets
    • No swearing
    • Must not resemble staff/clearly a player rank
    • Must not be offensive
    • Max of 10 characters long

    Thanks to BlunterWarrior for suggesting! And someone else from lost that I cannot remember srry, but thx!

    @blalp
    That is completely possible. Like choose from a list, make your own? @BlunterWarrior
    I'm saying making your own, as I think players would like to have custom prefixes of their choice. @blalp

    (my login timer ran out) and when I log back in it gives me a blank screen. Thankfully Nomad was around so I could ask if she wanted to add anything, and just perchance save this post. Thanks!

    any other reasons not to have death messages that people can think of?
    They can get kinda annoying as people try to do everything they can to get death messages. Even the stupid death messages.

    While I agree that people can get a bit spammy with death messages, I also think that that would fall under the "no spamming" rule, and could be punishable much the same way that normal spamming is. (Unless of course the person is actually in an infinite death cycle, in which case the death messages would be a good way of identifying that problem, given that they'll probably be unable to send a message in chat)

    I have two real reasons that I'd like to see them re-enabled, though.
    • It's entertaining to see the messages when people die. It would make you try even harder to not die, because you probably wouldn't want everyone to see you had died in some hilarious way. I think that would add an extra layer of fun to the current Lost Islands experience, if perhaps in a subtle way.
    • It would actually be useful to know when someone had died. For example, if someone dies to a ghast there's a pretty good chance that they're in the nether, and knowing that they had died would give people a chance to step up and help them either reclaim or replace their lost gear.
    Quote from: Tyler7733 on May 01, 2017, 11:59 PMSo are death messages a forgotten topic, not going to be re-enabled because of a given reason above, not going to be re-enabled because of sky factory, or something else?

    I am taking a break for 16 days to get some stuff done irl. I will not be checking anything during this time. If you need something not urgent, post in survay in my signature. If it is uregent talk to ceddy24, Mlg_AlphaFire or Rose2247. They will help you ir defer you to help. Dpa may look at skyfaftory in my absence.

    Sorry,

    So I am going to try to release the skyfactory server within the next 3 weeks. There may be quite a few bugs and items that need to be banned, so pls pm me if you find any of these items. Lost will stay up for a little while after the release (at least a couple weeks. Depends on how many players), but we are going to shift to skyfactory. Sound Good to everyone?

    Nothing will carry over. Not uptime ranks, donations, ect. Srry about that, but due to the fact I cannot  transfer all ranks over, Lost being up at the same time (so the people would get double perks).

    Another Skyfactory update. I recently looked at lost islands donations. There are none. Donations are what allows Lost Islands to stay up. I hate to say this, but without donations, Lost is just sucking resources from SFT and not helping pay the bills at all. Please donate guys. As for skyfactory. It is taking longer than expected, Tow/dpa fixed a couple lag issues, and the complete lack of donations make it hard for me to justify making an entire new server, just to suck more of SFT's resources. If you guys can get 200$ in donations, I will work on skyfactory. And We need donations, because unfortunately the website, and the server all cost money to host. I personally would love it if it could all be free for us to host, but it isnt. Sorry, but it had to be said. I love Lost, don't get me wrong. I just cannot justify spending hours setting up a new server with a fantastic community, but no donations. Lost will stay up. SkyFactory Canceled (unless you guys reach 200 in donations (no time limit)). Sorry.
    If you buy X ammount of stuff on the lost donatorshop today, then you can buy X dollars worth of stuff on the skyfactory premium shop if/when it comes out.

    Donation Count: 56.99/200

    There was a dupe glitch associated with the computer, so it had to be banned :( I was wondering what you guys wanted to do in response. For example, should we add horse eggs to emp?
    31
    You can report glitches In this survay and then pm me. If you do submit something here pls pm me so I can check post.

    If you have any glitches you have noticed me about previously please submit here.

    We have had two world rollbacks in the last little while due to thermal flui pipes. banning so we don't have to rollback world again. @saywhat2365 will be working on a fix for this
    33
    IF THIS MOVE DOES HAPPEN, IT WILL BE A LITTLE WHILE. Nothing is set in stone yet (-uptime not transferring). This is more of a long term question. Keep playing lost as you have been. I will update you if/when it is closer.


    Pros
    • More players (skyfactory is more known)
    • Should be less laggy server side
    • Your ideas here
    Cons
    • No modpack control
    • Complete reset

    The mods are about the same. No blood magic, no thaumic tinkerer, but iron chests and chicken chunks and sync.

    Leaning towards project ozone also https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/project-ozone-2-reloaded. I am not opposed to SkyFactory on AT launcher. https://www.atlauncher.com/pack/SkyFactory/ Would love to hear your guys thoughts on this.

    Money, uptime, and ranks would not transfer.

    What do you think?

    B-Team / [B-Team] Auto restarter
    Mar 31, 2017, 12:24 AM
    Quote from: blalp on Mar 22, 2017, 03:48 AMLost now has an auto-restart feature! This will trigger when the tps is below 5 for over 10 seconds or so. You can also /voterestart. This requires 100% agreement to prevent trolling or constant restarts. I have the values configurable, so if it is restarting too fast or too slow, please let me know.

    Have a great lag free day,

    As you might have noticed, I have not signed on to lost as much (if at all) in the past couple weeks. This is because I am helping out more on a global SFT scope, such as website, prison, ect. I will continue to be around on skype/discord a lot if you need me. Please don't feel bad if I have to defer you/your question to someone else. It is only because I (unfortunately) don't have unlimited time. I want to help you all, don't get me wrong, just I have to scale down a bit. Does this mean I am forgetting about lost completely? No way. I will continue to try to brainstorm ideas to improve lost, as well as looking at how other sft servers do things, and I am trying to get a couple developers (currently in training) to help out on lost and fix some major problems. If the server is dying or a bug/glitch is happening, by all means, please pm me. For example, I currently have two ideas to improve lost that may take some time to implement. First off, an auto-restarter if tps gets too low (Also will try to add a /voterestart, and if everyone agrees on a restart, it will restart). And additionally, a tour feature when players join for the first time. The chat messages were an improvement, yes, but not enough I feel. This will show them around to a couple locations(<10 seconds) then say another command /tour that will give a more in-depth tour (and 25kEmp). Unfortunately, due to a packed schedule, these will not happen as fast as I would like. The Auto-restarter is first, then the tour.

    Hope you understand and have a nice day ;),

    Ever forgot a command? Or just too lazy to type today?


    This menu has clickable items that you can use to execute various commands. Please note that some of these commands will not execute correctly due to missing arguments, but you can still see the command's text in the lore of the item or in the help message that displays on-screen.

    How do I access this menu?
    /gui or by punching or right clicking with a meteorite compass (AE2) (item id 182). New Players will also spawn in with this compass and it will be included in a new island's chest and kit starter and will not be minechem decomposable.

    Found a typo?
    Go ahead and post here?

    Found a bug?
    Forum pm @blalp

    Thanks to @arch8ic for testing!

    I had to removed Chicken Chunks yesterday because it was somehow driving the server to 0 tps. I will ban them for a couple days (2/10-2/12), then unban. This will delete the inactive players loaders. Then when as longs as the lag is not bad after it is unbanned, they will stay unbanned. Use them sparingly.

    Sorry, but it just got too bad,

    We recently got the Chicken Chunks mod. In one weeks time I plan to ban the Minefacory Re-loaded chunk loaders. This is due to the increased server lag lately. The chicken chunks loaders are configured to load the chunks only when you are online (like the railcraft personal anchors). There will be a chunk limit at the number of chunks on your island. During this transition, you may exchange MFR chunk loaders for Chicken Chunks chunk loaders. If you want to exchange them, just post here with the cords of your loaders that you want to exchange, and a staff member will tell you in the post ehen they are exchanged.
     if you dont have exact cords, you may describe where it is, but just know that we may not be able to find it.
    Have a good day.

    If you put a combination of ingots and blocks in a draconic reactor then SHIFT-click the extract fuel button and grab it out, all of the awaked blocks will despawn. Remember to normal click instead.

    Have a good day (one that you hopefully don't lose stacks of draconium),

    You know how you had to do /is create and /spawn and /is h or /is create then /is restart a whole bunch to make the island generate? Throw that nonsense away and use /start. (Psst all it does is /is create, /spawn and /is h with delays). It is just nicer. Spawn and new join message updated.

    Another bug hits the dust,
