Creating flying is back! ...but now on Vincent. Rather than the IC2 fuel jetpack, any pair of boots will work.
To activate creative flying, you must build a beacon made of pure diamond. Only one level is needed, but more levels will give you a larger radius of effect for the flying.
Sneak and right click the beacon to activate flying mode. Double tap your jump key to fly.
Your boots will degrade over time while you are suspended in the air. Iron and chainmail boots should last for approximately an hour (real life time), but leather and diamond boots will last for shorter and longer durations, respectively. You will be provided feather falling on the boots to reduce damage from falling should the effect wear off.
The east-west lime green Vincent rail has been extended to Bell Station by CrieNorec and I! It now connects both Aegis Station and Bell Station non-stop. After a stop at Aegis station, you can also transfer to the rail towards Edison Station, of which the length of the two lines is possibly ~8000 blocks.
Vincent is currently undergoing chunk pre-generation up to 5k (which covers 90% of what has been built), but the world border had to be readjusted to 5k for the time being. If you live beyond that line, you may not want to log on at the current time.
I would like to let you all know that I have taken a look at the Alice server and I have possibly fixed it.
The change is related to chunk loading on mod's demand so it may cause adverse affects for quarries, if you notice anything strange please report it on the bottom of this thread so the issues can be addressed.
Right now I wanted to just get the server into a working state so that you guys can get back on it playing again.
An additional alternate server is in the talks maybe a classic or cut down modded server with increased difficulty may become part of the community soon.
Feel free to comment on the above using the thread!
As you may have seen recently in the shoutbox of the forum there has been talks about a classic server of an old alice modpack. As you may know the release of 1.7 was great and infact very successful, with the help of our modpack team. The server has slowly got worse and worse and crashes very often.
Because of this the community has started to crumble which in my eyes after a five year run is sad. I would like to propose that we bring back some nostalgic times by creating a classic server as stated above.
Since it's christmas time I would like to wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of the staff at SKCraft.
Let's hope 2015 can be the mark of Alice's resurrection!
