    Hi there!

    Before I set off with my introduction, I would like to first thank you for taking a moment to read this thread.

    My name is Nick. I'm 26 years old and have been playing Minecraft since Beta. I only recently found myself playing mods, being introduced to the idea via the ease of the Technic Launcher. I heard about FTB prior to it's release as a mod pack through Direwolf20's YouTube postings. I have henceforth been playing FTB from launch day of the mod pack.

    I typically play on my own local server. The only other member being my girlfriend when she finds the time to play. However, I mean no disrespect to her, but her style of play is "vanilla". She has very little drive to utilize the mods for anything other than aesthetics. I occasionally find myself describing some sort of complicated multiple machine-using cross-mod contraption with little to no feedback. So, I have spent the past few days actively seeking out FTB Servers in which I could find like-minded individuals who wish to show off their creative complex contraptions with pride and coherence. Having never played on a real server, this was to be a first time adventure of sorts.

    Where to search? I found myself scouring Sub-reddits and google searches. I have checked out a few of the servers listed on and found nothing but lag and griefing. I've joined a few teamspeaks only to be aurally violated by the high pitched cacophony of which they were filled. I suppose my findings are to be expected given the ease of finding these servers and the non white-listed nature of them.

    So I now find myself joining the FTB official forums, with the hopes of finding a server where I can play with a small to medium sized group peaceful, intelligent, like minded people.

    And even If my search for a community in which to play doesn't prove fruitful, at the very least I would have access to a forum containing the very people whom I am seeking; A community of insightful, inspiring creations and the brilliant minds behind them.

    Once again, Thank you for taking your time to read this thread.

    Hi, and welcome! I only play local, so I can't help you find a server. But I wish you the best of luck in your quest.

    A girl who doesn't play MC with mods???

    We should immediately put her on the scales and measure her weight with a duck!

    If she weighs as much as a duck, then she must be made out of wood!

    And if she is made out of wood, then....


    ... build a bridge out of her?

    Will that solve the problem?

    Welcome to FTB, where insightfulness and comedy clash!

    Building a bridge will solve the problem, if we get over it.

    i'm fortunate enough that i play on a small size server for a group of friends. we all know each other from a previous server and were helping in the beta testing before the launch and have just kept with it. its kinda a hit or miss but best bet is to just look around with a friend if able. things can be more tolerable with a friend to work with
