    Hunger Ovehaul mod

    i know this is in magic farm, I use it in my own custom pack, was wondering about opinions for people whohave used it. So far the one loophole i find is that people just let themselves die early the game, respawn at their bed, and basically get 'free' food from dying. I have difficulty on...

    If servers handle the machine calculations, why does my FPS drop in my base?

    I was just told this, and have heard it before. When playing on a server, it handles 'the calculations' that tech mod machines need to do (or vanilla hoppers, etc.). No one can explain it in more depth than this though, so im wondering if someone here knows. The last guy said that a pc...

    How often do you visit other people's bases?

    In my experience minecraft was less of a group game than i thought it woudl be, I was wondering if other servers/groups are more community oriented. When i started, the guy who ran the server told everyone to live at least 1000 blocks from each other. Everyone wanted their own area, and to not...

    Is Ore processing and sorting disappearing?

    Just curious, I have 3 new players that are on my server. 8 weeks into their experience, none of them have automated ore processing. While it's not necessary and I wouldn't dictate how people have fun, it seemed to me that figuring out how to process the stuff you had coming in and automate...

    Objective based mods.

    Was reading this thread from Mikemoo on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/feedthebeast/comments/1uasaa/objective_based_mods/ He says: This kind of goes against what others often say, but I agree with mikemoo here. KingLemming once told me 'play the game, dont let the game play you' in...

    Isn't an MFR tree farm really just a solar panel?

    It appears many people in the community have a sort of disdain for solar panels. "free energy, no maintenance" are the phrases that usually pop up. Just place the block and get free energy. Isn't a MFR tree farm really just about the same thing? I'd be curious to see which takes more...

    Is it better that mod blocks are not *too* realistic?

    I was just wondering what people felt about this. I kind of like that many of the items that mods make aren't completely realistic looking, or in how they work. While it's interesting to have a mod have a power system based on real electricity, I also like that the items are not completely...

    Backups and Saves

    This is specific, possibly, to Creeperhost. Just had a question about backing up a world and wondered if anyone might know how it works. If I set up backups to run daily, do I also need to set up some sort of autosave? I had forgotten to pay our invoice and the server was shut off. I paid...

    Why don't more mods have sounds?

    It is one of the things I love about IC2, and after not having them for months, I just re-enabled them on my server. Im not expecting gregtech stuff to have sounds, and most mods don't. I'd almost update from 1.4.7 JUST to get railcraft steam engine sounds. Is there a reason more sounds...

    How would I slow game progression down?

    Was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to slow down the rate at which the game progresses. Here is my dilemma: I am playing ultimate. Some things id like to change: I made a cow farm for mob essence and a tree farm for power, MFR with quartz upgrade. I have 5 boilers going and still...

    Autosmelting picks that double ores...

    Asking people who use these, if you come back with all those ingots, what do you then build with the metal? Is there any need for power then? I understand some people like to explore and do other things besides build ore systems, but it seems with these new ways to just mine 2 ingots per...

    What's your most fun moment in Minecraft?

    Mine was when I first started, had just figured out how to get a quarry to 64 x 64 and had mined a RP volcano for the basalt, and had spent 2 weeks building my first real 'base', having finally figured out how to completely automate ore processing and keep up with the quarry. My friend who...

    How do you handle admin/op privileges on a server...when everyone helps pay for it?

    Just wondering how people usually handle this. Do you let everyone have access to the server, if all of the players are chipping in for the cost of it? Obviously the fear is that people will cheat... even though its technically not a competitive style game, and if the person is paying for...

    What if every mod had a Gregtech version?

    IMO there is no right or wrong with gregtech arguments, everyone likes to progress at different speeds and everyone has different ideas on how 'hard' the game should be. So why couldn't each mod just have configs to enable harder or easier recipes, and let the players decide what they want? It...

    Suggestions to improve this power setup? Trying to automate power.

    My idea was a vertical tower of engines pumping into a stack of MFSUs surrounded by some sort of lamp that lit up when the MFSUs were full AND to have the MFSU's turn on the engines and a generator backup as they drained out. Overview shot of the setup: Basic shot of the engines and the...

    There's an app for that?

    This might sound ridiculous but I am at work and thought "hmm I forgot to see if an iridium came in on the quarry I set up in the twilight forest last night. I wish there was an app that let me check certain in game events when I can't log in to the game" Like a wireless redstone/gate type mod...

    5 months, 5 worlds, all crash and burn. Cannot ever get to 'End game'

    How rare is it to have a world survive for more than a month? Do most of you play for months and kill a world when you get bored, or do most people end up having worlds crash due to bugs and such? Right now ive played minecraft for about 5 months with a few friends on a private server. We have...

    Xycraft tank keeps resetting and I lose everything in it.

    Not sure if this is the place to put this, but this is horribly frustrating. I have a xycraft tank on top of a magmatic engine setup, 4 valves on top, 4 on bottom, netherbrick frame and glass viewer walls. 3 times it has just randomly decided it was not a tank (no blue shimmering lines when...

    4 Dragon Egg Siphons at the same time... effects?

    A friend of mine beat the ender dragon, and made a gregtech egg siphon. He lost the original egg, so found out you can make more of them. He edited the server config to allow more eggs, and right now has 4 of them. It rains... a lot... on the server now. It says they will create flux, and...
