I have decided to expand APOC more into FTB and use the 3 server slots for: (Green = Online | Red = Offline/Being Built)
- FTB Direwolf 20 1.6.4 - Online / Generating chunks for worlds...
- FTB Monster 1.6.4
- FTB Horizons 1.6.4
The 2nd server has less hard drives then the main server which means it will take longer to generate the chunks for the worlds on the new servers. Give atleast 1-2 days for each server to generate the worlds.
While the servers may be up soon they will be in very early stages. Which means i am counting on you guys to login, play, and find issues and bugs and report them to me to get fixed. Also it may take some time to build up a player base for these servers so please do your part and spread the word we got these new servers up!
I have held on to a bunch of my servers for a very, very, long time. Too long if you ask me. We could not get staff on them that actually care about the server, its players, and the community enough to bring them back to life. And i know all it takes is good staff to bring back a dead server because when Ethicus became deus for Big Dig the once dead server with no one on it actually had a player spike a week later of 14 people online.
All it takes is effort. You be nice to players, play alongside them, and communicate with them. The playerbase will like to play on that server then a server with 1000 more plugins then ours. Because the staff take time to get to know them and help them when asked.
As of right now i am shutting down Tekkit Lite, Big Dig, and Bukkit. I will also be shutting down the ports with them as well. Normally i recycle the server ports but this will complicate things when trying to make vote sites for the new servers.
B-Team and Tekkit Classic are also on the chopping block. If the staff and player base do not improve within 2 months from now they will also be shutdown.
A server must have an active player base, staff, and atleast 2-3 supporters on the server to make it worth my time to host it. As it stands there is no supporters for any of the servers on the 2nd server. The only supporters we got over there are global supporters that want to checkout the different servers on our network.
So for the staff on B-Team and Tekkit Classic get in gear guys! Cause if i dont see 15+ players online at peak hours every day and a incline of votes, applications, and supporters i am shutting it down.
And now the real questions come in. What modpacks should we replace them with? (Please only 1.6.4 packs!)
I intended on setting up the Resonant Rise Mainline modpack. I would like some more suggestions on what packs to add. The packs must be official modpacks on the launcher! (FTB and ATL) I am not setting up a server for a 3rd party modpack like The Walking Dead pack from Technic. Their server is hard-listed in the modpack and its pointless to try and get people to go to ours.
