It seems like we’ve got a good number of people showing interest!
So after some fiddling around with the server, with big help from BR and izzy, I’ve gotten the server to run.
Unfortunately, everything’s really laggy and I need to make configuration changes, so it’s unlikely that it will be available to play for a while.
The plan is to first tweak the mods and worldgen a bit to reduce server strain when generating new chunks.
If everything goes as planned, the server should be functional for a small staff group by the end of this week for a beta test.
If that is well-received, maybe we can go public! Probably dreaming too much…
Stay tuned for more info.
Hi folks, been a while since I’ve been on the forums. Good to see everyone’s still doing well~
Anyways, recently in modded Minecraft, GregTech 5 received an unofficial, but officially sanctioned, finalization.
For those who don’t know what GregTech is, it is an overhaul/add-on to the IndustrialCraft system that introduces many mod interactions and rebalances the end-game. IndustrialCraft is an add-on focused on bringing tech into Minecraft. It’s a classic mod, that’s been outmoded due to new mods giving comparable end-game for a fraction of the effort…and GregTech makes it even harder to reach that.
That puts many people off: why spend hours quarrying and developing large processing systems when you can just install Mekanism or Draconic Evolution? Why build a fusion reactor when you can just create a larger tree farm? But one thing it does: it makes for a long, awesome journey. And the journey is what Minecraft’s all about.
Beyond Reality is a modpack that’s centered around GregTech 5 Unofficial. To reach end-game, you’re going to have to invest in it. But it’s got plenty of other cool mods along the way so if you get bored or stuck, you’re not out of luck. You can read the list of mods included here. If I wind up getting this pushed through, we might make configuration changes as necessary to lighten the server/client load or relieve progression bottlenecks.
Obviously, there’s probably going to be an opportunity cost to running this: aloha’s server space and power isn’t infinite, so we might have to take down another game server we’re currently running. If you’re interested though, leave a comment and share your thoughts.
This post wasn’t condoned by any other aloha admins…this is just a personal campaign from yours truly.
