That’s right. We’ve been running a vanilla Minecraft server for quite some time, but we had some issues with it because Kelly didn’t update it (N, slap him please. (Done! -N (Ow! -Kels))), but we have the updates installed and it is accepting connections again. For a while, we’ve looked a number of mods and thought about the possibility of installing a mod or two, but there’s one in particular that we got a huge push for last night so we decided to go ahead and install it. So now, we’ve opened up a second Minecraft shard and we’re bringing people on.
That’s right kiddies. Now we have two Minecraft servers for your digging and building enjoyment. We have the vanilla server which has been around for a while (longer than you might think) and has had some interesting projects done on it. We also now have a server running the Feed The Beast mod pack which features tons of awesome add-0ns and updates.
I think it would take me about 60 hours to go through everything that’s been added on or changed, but I can tell you very quickly that with this add-on pack, the game has about a bajillion new items you can make -everything from mining lasers to jet packs and all kinds of cool stuff you can do.
If you’d like to check out either of our minecraft servers, let us know in the forums for either our vanilla server or our FTB server and we’ll whitelist you. We are going to be doing regular events on the servers, including big weekend builds! For our first build, we’re talking about building a huge, functioning city on our vanilla server and then we’ll have something special on the FTB server on alternating weekends. We’re not ready to announce what’s happening on the FTB server yet but check the forums and make sure you pop in because we’re going to have a lot of fun!
We’ll be revealing more details soon, so stay tuned!
