Is anyone interested in helping create a decorative mod (textures and models)? A plus if you are artistic...

Send me a PM.

[IMG] We've TEMPORARILY reset the Nether because our current Nether has something wrong with it, and I do not have time right now to figure out what that problem is.

[IMG] NOTHING YOU PLACE ON THE CURRENT NETHER WILL BE SAVED. The original Nether will be restored some time within the next week. If you need something from the old Nether, please contact a moderator.

We're currently aware of an ongoing problem with "tile entities" duplicating. The reason is really technical, so I'll spare you the details, but the effect is:
  1. tick rate slows
  2. the server freezes due to "crafting"
  3. the server stalls entirely
Crafting is not actually slow -- it's this problem. It only affects Nether too, so it baffles me. Over the next week, I will find some time to add some code to the server to diagnose the cause. We can unload Nether to temporarily fix it without restarting the server.

Here's a graph of the issue:

The gaps are server restarts.

  • Botania (v224)
  • Added a recipe for the Pneumaticraft Speed Upgrade
  • Enabled using higher tier flux capacitors/cells on TiCon tools
  • Upped the power consumption of the Immersive Engineering Grinder to 3x (just makes it faster, not require more energy per operation)
  • The Worldedit wand is Flint now, as usual

We've managed to quell most of the crashes and stalls that have plagued Alice for the past week. We've nearly reached the level of "crash suppression" that we had on previous Alice versions, and we've added a stall detector that will detect when the server has frozen, attempt to recover the server, but then restart the server if recovery fails (while also broadcasting messages the entire time so you don't just time out).

Crafting still has the potential to freeze the server, so we're still looking into that.

GregTech (on the client) also starts much faster now. I think some people have had load times reduced from 15 minutes to 6. We'll see if we can improve it even further, although the rest of the modpack also takes a significant amount of time.

As for Vincent, I'll see if I can get it up next week.

Alice is back up! Hardcore Questing managed to corrupt its data files so we've rolled back to one of its backups.

I've also moved Alice's world to a ramdisk to make the server run better.

We're having some problems with the server. It currently freezes midway through the load.

The only one who can fix this is basically sk, so the server will unfortunately be down until he returns tomorrow.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

We've pushed an update to Alice that should dramatically reduce GregTech loading time.

In addition, we've also suppressed some server crashes that were happening very frequently.

The server still occasionally freezes and times out everyone, and it seems to be caused by world saving, so we'll have to look into that.

P.S. If you can't pick up oil in the bucket, it's because the oil is from Galacticraft and not PnuematicCraft.

We've reverted the updates to Malisis Doors and Immersive Integration as they introduced more bugs.

A client update is required.

If you're crashing due to the latest update, update again. We've rolled back the version of Forge.

The server is a taking a while to boot because we removed the Weather mod and we have to update the world to remove its blocks.

edit: up

Today's update includes:
  • Updated Botania. ( rip spammy setups )
  • Updated OpenComputers. ( yay nanobots )
  • Updated PneumaticCraft. ( bugfixes )
  • Added recipe - 1 Clay Block = 4 Clay
  • Fixed Wooden Slab recipes for different types of wood. ( degreg )
  • Fixed Thermoelectric Generator recipe to work with Cupronickel. ( degreg )
  • Fixed Magma Crucible recipes so that you can make different tiers of the machine. ( updating the machine itself doesn't work as of now though, would probably do it for next update. )
  • Fixed Blood Arsenal crashing.
Probaby a Force Update is adequate if you have problems launching.

For Vincent players: is it fine if we start Vincent up with almost no mods (no rails, farming machines, logic gates, etc.) temporarily?
