Modded Minecraft Multiplayer Server

Crypto & I were discussing that very option last night. I've started exploring some RFTools dimensions as of yesterday, so the timing may work out splendidly. I'll try to find a nice bland world to totally screw with.

Looks like there is a new update, but that the update may remove existing IE wires.

Also "Set botania back to default textures; grouped the alternate ones with Unity"... someone (Ryu?) was really bummed out that the Minecraft Unabridged 6 release changed the textures of all of her just-recently-placed Botania flowers... maybe this restores that look?

Anyway - I assume nobody should update their client until Arovin reviews & schedules a server update.

Yep, I was sad with the texture changes. I couldn't recognize any of my flowers. But I'm not online enough to make to much bother by it now that work and school have taken over my life.

Crypto completed the Convocation of the Damned yesterday, and brought forth a demonic portal into a separate dimension I had created specifically for the purpose. Photographic evidence follows.

In other news, I've created another dimension with a literal ocean of Life Essence, which can be pumped into a Blood Altar. No more sacrifices needed!

so it looks like the demon village stopped generating houses and demons. (0 demons spawned over night). I am getting the mats together to summon another village. Merphle lets try doing it in a completely flat world and make the matter materializers be placed 15 blocks above the center of the village.

Arovin, I found troubleshooting for if the village doesnt generate the center structure (which it didn't). Is this something you could do?

"Delete your config/BloodMagic and try again. The buildings are saved as .json files and the config folder is outdated. It is good practice to do this if a major update occurs. If this doesn't work, update your BloodMagic and try again."

For what it's worth, the village definitely is still generating streets... Just not new houses or demons. I'm willing to try again with a new dimension, but I may not be online until late tonight (11:30 ET). I'll probably be on most of the day tomorrow though.

I've got all the mats ready for another village, so if you make a dimensions that is flat with no orbs and has that beautiful demon sky, we should be good to go.

The server has been updated to version 7a.

I have removed the config/BloodMagic folder.

We just did a new summon, this time it brought in a special altar, so it looks like that fixed it Arovin, thanks!

Any chance I can get a character restore? There was an accident involving a portal gun portal being fired at the moon... and all of my stuff is gone..... Arovin? Oddrune?

Damn you flaky authentication servers! Let me play!

FYI, looks like the server is down. Seems to be a space issue, I will have to check it and clean out some older backups when I get home tonight.

Might be related to the copious RFtools dimensions I've created over the last few days. I can provide a list of dims that can safely be purged when I get home from work tonight, if that's the primary culprit.

Server is up, I had to restore from the last successful backup from this morning. The world became corrupt when it could not write to the disk anymore.

I scaled the frequency of backups to every 3 hours and set it to only keep 7 days worth. Freed up about 40 gigs.

Thanks Arovin. I'll put a list of RFTools dimensions that can be purged here in a few minutes, which may help keep the backup sizes down (it's basically a couple of OP commands to run, then delete the corresponding directories from HD).

I do still need one of your help when you have either of you have a chance Arovin or Oddrune.

Dimension-slimming commands (I think) are below.

/rftdim safedel 3
/rftdim safedel 6
/rftdim safedel 8
/rftdim safedel 9
/rftdim safedel 10
/rftdim safedel 13
/rftdim safedel 15
/rftdim safedel 16
/rftdim safedel 17
/rftdim safedel 18
/rftdim safedel 19
/rftdim safedel 20
/rftdim safedel 21
/rftdim safedel 22
/rftdim safedel 24
/rftdim safedel 25

Once the above is done, the corresponding numbered dimension directories on the HD can be deleted.

Crypto, I'm not going to be on until Friday, I think. If I see you on, I'll try to jump on to help, but I'm pretty busy lately.

I'm back in Taiwan, and boy, did everything fall apart when I was gone! I'll be working on improving production and autocrafting, towards the end of making a bunch of certus. We also need iron and wood in the vault, looks like...

(The 'everything falling apart' thing was a joke, of course. I'm just commenting on the lack of fundamentals in the vault... hopefully you did hook up deep storage for cobble and sand!)

Same here, if I see you on when I am home I will log in to try.

Does it have to be a chair?

Arovin, if you have a time that you know you'll be able to jump on, let me know and I will jump on.

I have an iron farm which was turned off, since we used to have way more than we needed. Iron will be trickling in and we have 22K. I'm farming gold and redstone. Shrike's certus will be welcome. If anyone can spare a lot of dirt, I can convert it to clay.

I think there's plenty of iron and gold in the Vault now... redstone too. Certus would be nice to get in a bit more quantity. I think there's a lot of dirt in the Vault as well, if you want to run with that.

I have River bees, which make clay. I can make more if clay is an issue.

Thank you Oddrune for restoring my irreplaceable items!

I'll turn off the iron. I'll look into making clay.

I process dirt into clay with Mekanism. I couldn't say which method might be more efficient.
