Grand opening of the official long-term server was Thursday, March 29th.
You need to increase the ram allotment in your Twitch launcher for the pack to over 6 gigs,
In the Twitch launcher click on the modpack, then click the three dots on the right side, click profile options, then uncheck use system settings, then drag the ram up over 7 gigs.
This modpack was created with survival server play in mind. Build up your town using many tools provided in the pack.
You start in a world full of new biomes and exploration.(Biomes o plenty, Cavern II, and futurepack)
Note for single players- if you change the name of your world, the World drop mod(teleports you to the overworld) will not work unless you copy one of the default worlddrop configs over the config that was made for your world name.
--Roleplay mode on --
For generations, the survivors of the great devastation have lived underground, scratching by eating mushrooms and whatever you could find, however in your lifetime scientists have spoken about the possibility of returning the surface to live, initial testing has shown that the surface is one again inhabitable.
You decide that you can no longer wait, you are making the trek up to the surface, to face what you find there, others that have gone before have not returned, but you have a strong feeling in your heart that you are going to make it, and you are determined to repopulate the surface. Equipped with the tales of the bright sun and flowers dancing in your mind, you decide to dig up, and make your way!
--Roleplay Mode off--
You will start in caverns, and need to dig to the top(256) to get out, once you get to the bedrock, jump in to it to get teleported up. If you ever die, hold your key with right mouse until you get teleported back to your grave.
Start with a colony ship, or wagon, let your villagers build up your town from the ground up(Minecolonies), then when you have a nice amount of resources coming in and you are ready to advance to the industrial age, you can found your large industrial city, lay out the roads, plan the bridges and use the builders to build skyscrapers with industry, and economy, sell resources you produce for building materials(Dooglamoo Cities).
Spice up your cities with many decorative mods- Ceramics, Chisel, Chisel's and bits, forestry woods, corail pillars for BOP Chisel and Forestry, future pack, LandLust, MrCrayfish, Xtones(like Ztones), platforms.
Grab the keys to your car and drive around on your newly build roads in your car, truck, or SUV,
Build an airport and fly realistic planes to other towns.
Link your town with others towns via freeways quickly using the blueprint tools.
Once you have the tech, you can build airports and working planes and trains, that's right, planes trains and automobiles!
More dangerous npcs may spawn further away from the worldspawn. Hot and cold biomes are also more dangerous. Don't start in a desert.
As your colony grows it will become appealing to raiders, the larger it grows the more bandits will come for you, think tower defense, in Minecraft :)
You need to increase the ram allotment in your Twitch launcher for the pack to over 7 gigs, I run mine with 12 gigs.
You will need to fix a setting in the Twitch launcher and update java to play the pack properly, here is a video to help you - https://youtu.be/-uUr1VAnkcs
