The server has been crashing lately again and unfortunately, it's been down for hours at a time. For now, we've brought the server back up but we will need to have it crash again to identify the cause -- sorry!

We ran into some unfortunate (and currently partly unexplained) issues that required restoring the server from backup.

While we keep hourly, daily, monthly backups both on-site and off-site, something happened with the hourly backups in the past 24 hours where we couldn't restore from them anymore. Unfortunately, that meant that we had to roll back the server back (EDIT: only affects Alice) 12 hours. That said, the server was down for many hours before everything went nuts (due to a server crash), so at least that minimized the damage somewhat.

If you have lost items / builds, please contact a moderator and we can arrange for refunds (or "roll forwards" from alternate backups).

Both Vincent and Alice should be back up.

Due to a crash that resulted in a massive rollback I've shutdown the server until the Code Monkeys are back from their coffee break.-

EDIT: Server is now back up!

The servers are temporarily down due to a (scheduled) system update. We're working on getting everything back to working order ASAP.

We are looking for people who would be interested in helping build Alice 1.7's next spawn.

There is no Alice 1.7 modpack yet, as we would like to use MC 1.7.10 for the server, but most mods are only available for MC 1.6.4 or MC 1.7.2 at this time. For the time being, we are building with just vanilla Minecraft.

If you are interested, please post on this thread. If possible, please provide screenshots. It would also be great if you had Skype.

You can also PM me.

While we don't have 1.7 modpack yet and it may be several weeks until we do, we can begin building spawn using a vanilla world.

Before we actually get to building anything though, we need to brainstorm.

Anyone got any suggestions as to a possible theme or setting? Pictures are welcome.

  • Vincent:
    • The number of hostile creatures on Vincent has been raised.
    • There is a new "Slime Paradise" (see Dynmap) which more frequent slime spawns.
  • Alice:
    • An update was pushed that fixes some ID conflicts.
    • A new "Engineer's Supply Shop" at spawn (first floor, next to clothing shop) provides supplies for Dimensional Doors and PneumaticCraft.

Sorry, but one of the modpack team members accidentally deleted Advanced Machines and it got into the update. It's been restored, but you will have to update again.

If you lost anything, be sure to ask us.

Alice will be updated in multiple parts, simply because it will make troubleshooting much simpler.

The changes currently slated for the first update — which has not been pushed — include:
  • An update of Mariculture (originally slated for removal)
  • The addition of PneumaticCraft
  • The removal of Simply Recycling, which provides reverse crafting/smelting recipes for pickaxes and so on but currently makes up around 14% of the modpack's load time
  • The re-enabling of the Igneous Extruder (though be aware that there are more efficient methods of generating cobble)
  • An update of the server software (Cauldron/MCPC+), which is a big jump from our ancient version and may fix various "Internal server errors"
I was also planning on adding Mr. Crayfish's Furniture Mod, but it seems that ExtraUtilities does not play well with it.

Remember that this is only the first update, and even then, it is subject to change.

Hello everyone! Alice hasn't gotten a lot of love recently, so I'll like to push out an update in the next week (or over this weekend). However, to do so, I'd like some feedback.
  • What mods should be considered for addition, even if denied before?
  • What mods should be updated?
  • What mods should be removed?
  • What blocks or items should be re-enabled that have been disabled?
We'll also try to update the server software in the process, which is extremely old.

I'm happy to announce the availability of the SKCraft Archive, featuring over 38 GB of prior worlds, modpacks, and archived material.


I also have an ad-hoc server up that hosts all the vanilla worlds if any old members are interested. Please contact me about that.
