Minetown |Site Info

    Server IP: ftb.mt.gg
    <Download Feed The Beast Client>
    Pack: Direwolf20

    Minetown now has its very own Feed The Beast DireWolf20 mod pack server. ( MtFTBDW20 for short )

    Feed The Beast Direwolf20 is a mod pack based around mods such as IndusterialCraft2, BuildCraft and redpower ( and many many more ) It is a very in depth pack that add tons to the playing experience and is recommended from all noobs to pros.

    For those getting started there is the wiki available as well as our own forums FTB section. Due to the complexity of the mod pack we recommend that you look up the mods and their uses through the wiki instead of asking the staff in-game.

    The server is on a different permissions base than main so if you want to play you will need to be promoted to member. Post in this forum to get set to member.

    Post any suggestions / Bugs / Errors on this thread.

    Good luck and let the mining / Creating a super factory begin

    Hey guys,

    I felt like a small newspost about what's going on Minetown would be appropriate to keep you updated about what's coming up and our objectives for the next months.

    We have a lot planned for the summer. You should start seeing those changes unfold in the upcoming weeks.



    1. The server cluster & the new worlds/servers

    We know this has been discussed for quite some time, and that other servers have came up with similar setups. However, it needs to be mentioned that most of these servers are running the same solution that has been coded by the same person.

    The reason why it's taking us so much time to get this up and running is that we are working on our own completely custom solution. Our cluster software will be matchless and second to none; a truly unique and revolutionary way to servers hosting.

    As of now, we are unable to provide any precise date for the complete release of the new worlds, especially considering that Minecraft will be releasing another update in the next weeks that will drastically change the game mechanisims. A lot of the cluster software will be affected by it and will have to be rewritten with new standards, and since we wouldn't like to release our solution and then have to take it offline due to Minecraft updates, we are delaying the release until Minecraft gets this new version out.

    You can get an idea of the worlds that we plan to release when this is completed by having a look at the poll on the right side of this page. (which we also encourage you to participate in)

    We apologize for taking so much time; great achievements do not come under short delay, but we have some other stuff coming up to keep you entertained in the meantime.



    2. The PVP server

    I'm happy to announce that we have been working forward on a partnership with DynamusX, the owner of a PVP server and a few other websites in the Minecraft scene (hosting and top sites).

    We decided to merge our efforts together and are planning to run his PVP server under the Minetown brand. On top of being a server owner and webmaster, he works in the programming & hosting industry in his everyday life and will be participating in the conception of our custom cluster solution.

    Few things still need to be worked onto and planned, but we are intending to release the PVP server by the end of this month / by the start of June.

    Additional details will be given upon release, but we are working on a completely different concept than the current one for this server. No registrations or applications will be needed to play on this server and that should also make it act as some sort of springboard into the world of Minetown for new members that lack the patience to go through the somewhat fastidious process of joining our server.


    3. Minecon 2012

    While no additional details have been released about Minecon at this moment other than the certitude of its happening, we are happy and proud to announce that we will be attending the event. As soon as we obtain more details on it we will initiate the procedures to obtain a booth.

    We should be able to produce a lot better media coverage of the event this year as numerous members of our staff are already planning to attend the event.

    More details about this will be given out as we learn where it will be holded.


    4. Minecraft Quarterly

    Minetown is proud to announce itself as one of the top sponsor for the new upcoming Minecraft Quarterly magazine !

    We will be featured on 2 pages (17"x11") of the magazine in the upcoming June issue.

    Check it out at http://mcquarterly.com !


    5. Social networking

    We've given a small refresh to our social network accounts and we just wanted to bring up a small reminder about them.

    Join and follow us on these to participate in special raffles and contests that will be organized on them !


    6. Voting system update

    For those of you who keep updated with the forum topics, you might have noticed this thread about the growing problem of faking votes.

    We will be updating the vote system in the next days to confirm captchas for it to be fully ready for the month of June.

    See you around !

    About the new world and new hardware

     
     
    Hello fellow Minetownians,

    I know a lot of you are impatiently waiting for the new world and the new hardware, we are too.
    As always, nothing goes as expected and the set up of the new hardware got delayed due to necessary SSDs firmware update that came out recently. We've made a decent progression on the construction of the MT1.0 world. We would have liked to release the world sooner, but we finally decided to plan the release at the same time as the new hardware.

    At the same moment, we will take the oportunity to rebuild the server entirely in a more optimized way. We will rebuild and rethink everything from A to Z to make the server run at its best.
    Our dev team is currently working on multiple custom projects to optimize the server in various means. As usual, we are always looking for new talented developers/system admins/network experts to join the team. If you think you have what it takes and have some time on your hands that you would like to contribute to Minetown, fill an application here! We expect the new server to be ready within 1-2 weeks if no other problems show up until then. And do not worry about the current server/world,as it been mentioned numerous times, everything will be kept. The two servers/worlds are going to be merged and it should be explicitly impossible to tell to which of the 2 you will be connected.
     

    Thank you for choosing Minetown as your Minecraft server !

    Regards,
    -sawine
