I however, will keep trying to use sponge :) We use a lot of plugins there, and it helps tie the servers together with our network integration (plus, shops!). We run a custom fork of sponge, so I've just been tweaking and disabling things here and there when they become a performance issue. I also provided a fix for BedPatch on their github that will let it work with sponge (was actually an issue not related to sponge).
EDIT: not to mention all the sponge optimizations (plus our additional custom optimizations built-in) that make our modded servers not laggy :)
I'm really enjoying the pack a lot. I'm still pretty early on but its a lot of fun.
I would really like to be able to see the quest map so I at least know what to focus on to get to certain mods.
i/e. I want to learn AE, as I've always used Refined Storage. Unfortunately, I have no idea how long its going to take to get there, and I don't know if I should just focus on an elaborate storage system for the time being as its far down the list, or a more modest system if its just a couple gates away.
I have no desire to be overpowered. I don't claim loot crates at all, and I only keep the modest items from loot bags, throwing away anything that I think would ruin the balance of early game. I think if it were possible to do that it would really improve the experience of progression.
I'm playing kitchen sink mode because I find some particular mods intolerable. But this progression chart would be handy, so I can at least approximately follow the intended progression. For example, the project E transmutation tablet is really cheap and a good early storage solution. But dumping charcoal into it from trees allows you to sidestep bulk ore processing once you've made one ingot of each - this might or might not be intended.
I created a world in 188.8.131.52, and recently upgraded it to 3.1.3. I was playing this evening, logged out and then back in half an hour later, and suddenly all the quests are unlocked. This is staged mode. I tried reloading quests, but that didn't help. I've now upgraded to the latest version, 184.108.40.206, and tried reloading quests again, but still the same.
What can I do to reset my quests? I'm not that far through (just started Botania and basic automation) but I'd rather not have to restart if I can avoid it :-(
So I cannot figure out for the life of me why I'm unable to hit mobs(melee) when they're in the little mob room I built. It's just a 3 high at eye level so I can hit their feet from beneath slabs. Is there some mod or config preventing it?
I can no longer place saplings in hopping bonsai pots. The ones that I had place earlier keep growing, but if I break the pot and replace it I can no longer right click saplings into it. Has something changed with the pots? I am on the latest version 3.1.5 as of writing this.
