Because there is some confusion around the tweaked ore generation in Alice 1.7, I have made a cheat sheet that explains where you can find which ores.

It's a quick draft at the moment, but I'll see if I can make it prettier and easier to read soon.

A client update was pushed.
  • Added our hacked together support for Java 8 with FML so you can now use Java 8 with the modpack.
  • Disabled VSync by default (only affects new players).
  • Added stern warnings about installing JourneyMap and shaders.
A server update was also pushed.
  • Fixed the friends list.
  • Disabled achievements in chat.
  • Reduced slot limit so the player list is readable again.

Westrend, our Alice 1.7 world, has launched!

Since we didn't tell anyone for the past month that this was coming, be sure to tell all your friends!

To play on Alice 1.7, connect with the familiar addresses:
  • alice.sk89q.com
  • alice.skcraft.com
Use the "Alice 1.7" profile in the launcher. As this is a whitelisted server, be sure to first apply if you aren't yet a member: http://apply.skcraft.com/apply

Release notes:
  • If you are crashing on launch or join:
    • If the error log shows "ConcurrentModificationException" and you are using a recent version of Java 8, install an older version of Java 8 or a version of Java 7. In the launcher's options, set the Java path to this older version.
    • In the launcher's options, set PermGen to 256 from 128.
    • Increase max memory in launcher options if you have available RAM.
  • If you are having extremely low frame rate (FPS):
    • Make sure that you did NOT choose to install JourneyMap.
    • Disable VSync.
    • Disable the texture pack.
    • Lower "Render Distance" under Video settings.

Vincent has been moved to the new server.

Because the IP address has changed, the hostnames that you are using (vincent.sk89q.com, etc.) may point to the old address for up to 24 hours, depending on your internet provider's cache policies.

Both Alice and Vincent are currently down due to a server migration. They will be up shortly.

In light of the recent news, I started the Sponge project:

So as you may have heard, Bukkit, the server mod that we use on both Alice and Vincent, is in trouble.

You can find out more information here:
http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/2fkz55/as_one_of_the_original_contributors_to_bukkit/

As we have a copy of Cauldron, we should be able to launch Alice 1.7.

However, Vincent 1.8 is in trouble... if we are not able to use Bukkit, then we may not be able to run several worlds (or do a lot of other things). We would have to run vanilla Minecraft and we could only have one overworld; plus, all the Minecart stuff would break.

We are planning to move the server again to an even faster server. The newer server, however, will be in Chicago.

I can't say when it happen, though maybe it will happen with Alice 1.7.

As you may have noticed the Alice server has been unavailable for around a week or so. This is due to an issue with dimensional doors that is not rectifiable. So this only leaves us with the option to remove the mod from the server so that it continues operation opposed to downtime.

Removal shall take place on Thursday 28th August.

Please report below on what you will lose and we will try our best to sort out refunding.

Apologies from the staff.

For the first time in SKCraft history I am proud to announce the chance for you to join in the development of the Alice 1.7 modpack by helping us test it! You will be granted a beta key which allows special access to the beta server along with extra forum access. The forum access will be used to report any issues/bugs or generally strange behaviour that you have not previously experienced.

In order to be granted one of the 10 keys available you must private message me stating you interest in participation. It may take 1-2days for your key to be received.

So what are you waiting for? Drop me a pm now!

ANOTHER BATCH OF 10 KEYS AVAILABLE! THERE WILL NOT BE ANYMORE AFTER!!

If you do not recieve a response within 2 days this means you are not required for the beta or the keys have ran out.

(Please note this our first time trialling such a scheme. Should anyone misuse the beta the whole scheme could be jeopardised so don't ruin it for others.)

The new server has been having issues.

Alice and Vincent have been restarted.

However, Alice may be crashing due to DimensionalDoors, so we will have to look into this.

Alice 1.7 is on its way.
