[Community] FTB Ultimate Reloaded Custom Server


Time for a new modded Minecraft server, this time we’re playing with a custom version of the FTB Ultimate Reloaded pack. This modpack should be lightweight enough for everyone to play (unlike some of our previous packs) but still filled with a lot of the mods we enjoy.

Server Aim
For every player to have their own separate house and to build a train system with Railcraft that will link all bases.

Rules/Notes

  • This is a cooperative server - No greifing at all. Every block place and break is logged so it will be obvious who the culprit is when detective @sentinelx101 is called.
  • Every player should have their own house/base - Cooperation is encouraged, this rule is intended to stop large shared areas like we have had every time before.
  • No teleportation - There are no teleport commands on the server, only the end game industrial craft teleporter. A rail system is not only a server aim but also necessary for fast travel (even though the map border is smaller as not to make this too painful)
  • Every base must be more than 100 blocks away from each other - for perspective the light blue circle on the map (AKA my base) has a radius of 100 blocks (every base will have a similar circle drawn around it with the location you choose being the centre).

This server has the [Community] tag, this means that this is a private server intended for known community members. Unfortunately we’re not accepting whitelist applications from new people unless someone else can vouch for you.

Beyond having to be an exisiting community member whitelist requests are not strict, you can change up what mods you’re doing any time. Most of the below is just to pick a location and give some server wide goals we can all assist with.

Example Whitelist Request

Username: SentinelX101

Location (you can find coordiantes on the map): The clearing at the edge of the magical forest (4, 64, -1322)

What mods you’ll focus on (roughly):

  • Thaumcraft 6
  • Tech Reborn

What you’d like to build/achieve:

  • Connecting the magical forest to the rail network
  • Reaching the end of Thaumcraft 6 (mostly because I’ve never used it before)
  • Building a wizards tower in the clearing

Aweful Base Layout Plan (MSPaint only! - optional):

Username: JonnyCoad & DianiCoad

Location: Unsure as I only have my phone on me therefore cannot check coordinates, but I can circle the area!

What Mods I’ll focus on:
Not sure yet! But I am going to focus on mining and resource gathering and big storage and sorting. Also bees.

Rough Plan:
Within the red area I will build my Mine house, with a functioning underground rail line to help mine.
Within the blue/green will be my port/railyard, where my goods can be shipped serverwide.
The yellow line is my proposed planning area, although I can’t get coordinates to have no idea if it’s right.

this will be updated soon!

Modpack update 3! Flans + fixes

Changelog:

  • Flans mod
  • Dirt block monsters disabled
  • Nether portal fix mod added
  • Herobrine added

Portal fix- Yay

Dirt Bock monsters- ya

Flans mod- OH FU…

Next modpack update!

Changelog:

  • Removed Flans mod
  • Removed Herobrine
  • Removed some chunkloaders (use FTB Utilities instead)
  • Added FTB Utilities (chunk claiming/chunk loading)
  • Added MrCrayFish furnature mod as requested by @JonnyCoad @Diani
  • Added server lag optimisations

FTB Utilities/Chunk loading/Claiming:
FTB Utilities has been added as the new area protection/chunk loading mod, please remove all old Railcraft chunkloads (you can keep the ones on rails if you need them).

To claim and load chunks first create a team (as prompted when you join), then in your inventory open the claimed chunks menu in the top left

You can click chunks to claim them, then shift left click to chunk load them (shown in red).

Please only claim chunks inside your area on the world map or in small amounts outside for machines like lava pumps, I don’t wan’t the whole world to be claimed.

Go to team settings and add people as allies to allow them to build in your area:

Flans mod removed:

Yes… it appears we’re not quite ready for the chaos that is Flans mod, however a new seperate monster apocolypse server to play with Flans will be coming soon. Here are a few pictures from last nights escapades:

Proposed Railway Design 1:

  • A single train will run around the entire main red track constantly - needs to include passenger and goods carriages.
  • Each base should have both a passenger station and a goods loading station.
  • Passenger stations should have a pressure plate which will signal the train to stop for ~10 seconds so passengers can board.
  • Goods loading stations should signal the train to stop automatically depending on if there are any contents in an export chest. When the contents are picked up, a redstone signal should be sent to the station meant to be recieving the goods which will mark the train to be stopped for unloading.
  • Trains on seperate lines can relay goods dropped by the main line to the other bases.

Advantages:

  • Less complexity than individual routes between each base running at seperate times.
  • Predictable max wait time at any point in central red line.
  • Potentially long full travel time on central line - use of high speed rails recommended.
  • Construction of only 3 trains needed.

Disadvantages:

  • High fuel requirements for constant running - steam instead of fuel use possible
  • Seperate train lines for further away bases (Scorchulus, MeJanner, smidget98, spawn) due to budget cuts.
