Feed the Beast

The official forums for the Feed the Beast modpack and launcher.



"They say that every journey begins somewhere...
Now, it appears that you are about to start your own."

Coming soon.​
Hello again! Welcome to FTB News for the week of April 24th. We’ve got a short-but-sweet update for you guys, so let’s get the ball rolling!

FORUM MODERATORS

We've just opened up Forum Moderator Applications/Nominations. You can learn more and submit your proposals here.
TOWN HALL:
Since the success of Trident stream, we've been discussing additional ways to interact with players using Twitch, especially in the realm of answering questions the community may have. Today, we're happy to announce FTB Town Hall. In short, we'll be conducting a monthly Twitch stream in which we will take both open and submitted questions and answer them to the best of our ability. We hope this serves as another link between users and Feed The Beast.

At the moment, we are currently nailing down appropriate dates and schedules. Look forward to more information as things get settled.

The FTB forum team is now looking to expand and add an additional new moderation team for the forums. We will be looking to recruit several moderators who will be responsible for monitoring content on the FTB forums. Amongst the responsibilities will be ensuring that forum topics are generally kept on topic and moving threads and posts to appropriate sections when needed. They will also be asked to ensure that members of the forums refrain from getting involved in heated exchanges where the topics of conversation cross the normal boundaries of what is and is not appropriate for a youth friendly forum. Previous experience of forum software is preferred but not essential, however a good understanding of general software technology is something that would be highly useful when learning how to use forum tools.

Whilst FTB runs the forums, this is your community and we feel that moving forwards, the community should have a hand in helping to select the forum moderators. Our proposal for the selection of mods is as follows:

You can either volunteer yourself, or nominate someone else on the forums that you feel would be appropriate for the role. If you are volunteering yourself, you will need to find at least 2 other existing members in good standing to second and third your nomination. If you are volunteering someone else, you will need to find one other member (excluding the nominated member) to third the nomination. From there, depending on how many names we get, we will pick from the nominated members. If there are a wide spread of nominations, we will look to hold a form of election where the community can have a greater say in who will be eligible to be invited to become a moderator.

When choosing people for the role of moderator we will be looking for the following skills and experience.
  • Length of time of membership on FTB forums.
  • Post history.
  • Standing in community.
  • Previous forum moderation experience.

Hello hello hello! Big week for FTB, so let’s get started!

TRIDENT

[​IMG]
Our newest pack Trident was released this week. Following the aftermath of an impact that left a large portion of the world scorched, Trident tasks players to choose an alliance and establish military and technological superiority over the other teams. This modpack focuses heavily on PVP combat and is geared towards small-to-middle-sized servers. It is currently available on Curse Voice as well as the FTB Launcher.

To learn more about Trident, click here to view Trident's press release.

Additionally, we hosted a stream over on our Twitch account to celebrate the pack’s release and answer a few questions. For those who were unable to attend, we uploaded the recording to our official Youtube account.

You can watch the stream here:​


SERVER SECTIONS

With the release of Trident, we decided to revamp our server promotion section. To quote the Trident’s press release:

We hope this new system provides a more adequate experience for both players and server owners.​

TRIDENT MERCH

New Trident-themed merchandise has been added to our storefront! Be sure to check them...
Announcement FTB Trident Released
[​IMG]

Prepare for impact. Prepare for war. Prepare for victory.

Today we’re proud to release Trident, the latest member of the Feed The Beast family of modpacks.

[​IMG]


In Trident, players are thrust into a land well past the brink of war. For as far as you can see, the world around you has been reduced to a smoldering expanse of death and decay. Sharp, craggy hills dot the landscape, carving ravines teeming with tainted water and deadly radiation. What does remain is a small oasis: one filled with plants and wildlife that haven’t succumbed to the poisonous environment. There may be more places like this- land without the deep scars of blight, but you’re not sure of where they might be. For now though, it is here in this tiny paradise that you shall set up your base.

However, you’re not alone. Like, you, others have been drawn to this gleaming desert gem. They want what you want. They want what you have. They don’t hesitate to take it.

To survive, you have allied yourself into one of three factions: Red, Green, and Blue. Your goal: establish dominance over the opposing teams and secure your victory on the battlefield. You can accomplish this by building up your infrastructure, quickly harvesting resources, and utilizing the very same weapons of war that destroyed this land.

The Great Battle is over, but the war has just begun.

Trident is a PVP-centric modpack and map designed for small to mid-range servers. Players are assigned to one of three teams and tasked with effectively eliminating the other factions while simultaneously protecting their own. Players can gather resources from the main oasis and risk detection by opposing teams, or travel far into the wasteland to see what riches it can offer.

In our testing, a typical session lasts roughly a month. Quicker or experience...

With less than 24 hours to go, Feed The Beast is planning a Twitch event for the release of its newest pack, Trident.

Join us this Thursday, April 16th, at 3:00PM EST (12PM PST, 7PM UTC, 8PM BST) on the Official Feed The Beast Twitch account for an afternoon of celebration and festivities. We’ll be discussing the development of Trident, playing a few skirmish matches, showing off some new store merchandise, and hosting a Q&A session with lead Trident designer and head of FTB Modpack Development tfox83.

Hope to see you all there!
Got some interesting stuff for you guys this week!

PACK UPDATES

FTB Infinity received an update in the form of a beta release this week. Infinity 1.4.0 is now available as a non-recommended build. This new version contains updates to over 35 mods and 7 config file changes.

You can grab this non-recommended build from Curse Voice as well as the FTB Launcher.

Speaking of beta updates, Direwolf20 1.7.10 will also get an update of its own as well. Direwolf20 1.7.10 1.3.0 will be released early next week as a non-recommended build.​

TRIDENT & SERVERS

This week saw Trident wrapping up its closed beta tests. We’re currently making small tweaks here and there, but so far everything is looking promising. At this point, we can announce that we’re planning for a release date of April 17th.

Because Trident is a multiplayer focused pack, we’ve been looking into revamping our entire server listing section as to better accommodate players both advertising for or looking for multiplayer sessions. Some new systems have already been installed and are currently under reconfiguration before we deploy them. Stay tuned!​

RESURRECTION RESURRECTED

As many of you are aware, we had to freeze and shelve FTB Resurrection, our successor to 1.4.7’s Ultimate, earlier than expected due to the discontinuation of Gregtech 5. At this time, I can happily announce that we’re in the very initial stages of resurrecting Resurrection 1.7.10.

The pack, which is being rebuilt from the ground up, will feature Gregtech 6 as its core mod. It should be noted, however, that it will not be possible to play with worlds utilizing Gregtech 5. Therefor, saves created in Resurrection 1.0.0 and 1.0.1 will not be compatible with future updates to this pack.

Resurrection joins previously announced packs Departed, Relentless, and...​
