Modded Minecraft Multiplayer Server

I'm in no rush as mom-in-law is in town this week. Having said that, it's also true most of the time, anyway

So start up as you all feel like and I'll join the fun as and when I can.

Some possible seeds:

Seed: -329429466250278 Map
Forest island in a good-sized sea. It's a fair bit of travel to a continent. Temperate to cool surroundings, but with some desert south.
Nearest mesa: south 3.2 km
Ocean monument: east 220 m

Seed: 946223840866002 Map
Forest island in small bay. Temperate to cool south, temperate to dry north.
Nearest mesa: south 3.4 km
No monuments particularly close, but seems like a good all-around seed.

I like that second one. Should check to see how close the nearest Astral temples are?

There is a small (no crystal) shrine on the start island. There are at least two medium (with crystal) shrines in the desert to the north. Haven't found a big one yet.

Sounds good!

So... are we starting Modern Skyblock 3 tonight?

Merphle, can you load that seed on the 101 server and I'll run a big dynmap render on it to look for bigger temples?

MS3 today: sure, though I need to have an early bedtime

I am fine with it starting today but may not have a bunch of time for it until after the weekend. We'll see. Where there is desire there may be a way.

Merphle and Oddrune we still need to take a run at the Chaos Guardian in Pyramid...

Is anyone looking to team up or is everyone feeling more like doing it on their own? I enjoy being social but am also fine with being on my own. I did a desert start last time so will want to do a different one (lots of orange for a bit...)

Would tomorrow night work better for a MS3 start, Oddrune? And we can attempt the chaos guardian in Pyramid tonight?

Nights are not good for me this week, sorry. Wednesday nights are (almost) always bad though.

Well, it's not strictly necessary for us all to start at the same time, if we're playing MST3K MS3D. It's just maybe a more enjoyable social experience.

We should probably look into hitting that Chaos Guardian in Pyramid before I archive the server, but there's no rush. I'll keep it shut down (to conserve server resources) until we're ready, and get MS3D set up on a third port. Anyone who wants to start tonight is welcome.

Also, I just pregenerated 10k chunks around spawn in the new M101 world, and I'm running a dynmap fullrender now.

Er, are you sure you got the seed right? It does not look like the seed we talked about.

Fixed! I'll post connection details for M101 and MS3D in a little bit.

For Vanilla Minecrafters who would like to learn more about Modded Minecraft, I present:
Modpack: GWJ Modded 101
Version: 1.0
Server connection: mc.merphle.com
Dynmap URL: http://mc.merphle.com:8123
This server is connected to #moddedminecraft on Discord.


For experienced Modded Minecrafters looking to dive wayyyyyy into the deep end of the pool:
Modpack: Modern Skyblock 3 Departed
Version: 3.3.1.2 3.3.1.3 3.3.1.4
Server connection: mc.merphle.com:25567
Dynmap URL: none
This server is connected to #moddedminecraft on Discord.
Note 1: You should go into your keybinding configuration and change/unbind the "g" key that's assigned to Dark Armor (or change the "g" key that's bound to the Sky Resources guide to something else).
Note 2: You start on a basic bedrock slab. Use "/island create " to create your preferred island type (the types are described in the Sky Resources guide as to how to proceed, if you want to peruse that before choosing your island). The available types are: sand, snow, wood, grass, gog (garden of glass - easier start), magma (challenging start).

Sounds good. Thanks for organizing and setting up all of this.

FYI falling off your island in MS3D is kinda funny with slime boots...

Because it has the new version of EnderIO in it?!?!
Or is there some other reason?

Does anyone have a suggestion for a mobs spawner?

Should it be far from me? A box? What about height?

Thanks.

Generally speaking, you want a dark room (red X’s on the floor) with holes in the walls so you can attack the mobs inside, located 24-32 blocks away from where your main island is. If you make it 3 blocks high (interior) you’ll get endermen; 2 blocks will prevent endermen, but you might actually want them in your mob farm.

In MS3D, you can visit other people’s island in spectator form (you can’t be seen, you can’t interact with anything, and you have perms-flight). Feel free to visit my island if you’d like to see my farm (which I shamelessly copied from Monocheli).

To visit:
/island visit merphle

To return home:
/island home

The player name field in the visit command supports tab completion, for convenience and spellchecking.

After some absurd amount of tinkering to get GWJ Modded 101 to work (I think the problem was with the Forge installs I had, had to wipe everything and start fresh), I was able to get this running. I was not able to join the server because I'm not on the white list though. Could you please add Asterith to the white list? Thanks!

Did you not download it through the Twitch client? That should take care of all the fiddly details.

I’ll add you to the whitelist as soon as I get home from work tonight (unless Oddrune or Crypto sees this first and adds you).

I did but I was getting an issue where it wasn't seeing the latest Forge client, even though the mod pack looks like it tried to install it. Like I said, I think this was an issue with my install, not the mod pack.

Asterith, I whitelisted 'Asterith' (I think). Let me know if it helps.

Hmm that didn't seem to work, still not able to access it.

Do I have the capitalization right?

Edit: I think I got it right the second time. Try it now.

The Modern Skyblock 3 Departed server has been updated to v3.3.1.3

Tempted to jump on the GWJ101 at some point (if you'll have me!).

Which name do you need in order to whitelist?

Your Minecraft name - the thing that shows up when you connect to a server and press the tab key.

Turns out it is actually “chiefsheep” - which is kinda handy.

Thanks for your help.

Alright, you're on the list now.
