So what is the best way to chunk load until FTB Utilities are updated??? I want to go tech, but I never used mfr chunk loader. I hear chicken chunks loaders caused lag but it was never an issue for me which is why I am surprised they were removed from this pack. I also never tried world anchors or personal anchors. I assume they work in the same way as chicken chunks. Will have to look into it but would appreciate any info. Also when does the FTB Utilities update with chunk loading come out? Thanks!
There are literally hundreds of mods that aren't included. We can't have all of them.
That might been true in the past but its not anymore.Note - While the railcraft anchors do work at keeping areas loaded.
They do not however function from server startup.
You need to go into the area first to get the object to appear then it will keep the area/dimension in memory.
ChickenChunks did work from server startup- without requiring you to go and enter the area.
This is a breaking difference for anyone who has computercraft loops that need to be kept going non-stop.
Oh I forgot that add-on was called AE2 StuffI do not mean Applied Energistics 2, I mean the mod called "AE2 Stuff", which is an addon for AE2 that introduces machines like the Crystal Growth Chamber (no more throwing stuff in WATER, which in my opinion is a terrible idea), the Pattern Encoder (which makes it so that you don't need to have an item in your ME to craft a pattern that needs it) and other nifty things. Again, I find it essential and I am very surprised it was left out. So, since I am curious, I was asking why this was.
In my personal opinion, it unbalances a lot of AE by making autocrafting too easy. AE has specific, well designed crafting gates that are intended to be difficult to automate. AE2 stuff completely bypasses them.I'm sorry, but "because" is not much of an answer. I'm not talking about "Virrigoose's Magical Nose-Picking Mod" or "Colored Carrots" or "Teledildonics", either. AE2 Stuff is a companion mod to AE2 that "fixes" many issues that players find, to say the least, irritating. It's clean, it gives more options to players, it's easier on servers, it's well-programmed and it's made by a known name in the modding community. It has found its way in most modpacks and, at least in my opinion, it should be by rights in every one that has AE2.
I'll rephrase my question: rather than "why is AE2 Stuff not in the pack?", I'll ask "is there any specific reason AE2 Stuff is not in the pack?". If the answer is "no", I would like to propose it be added in.
Just to make sure i understand. If I build in the Spawn Zone from the FTB Tweaks Map on my Infinity Evolved Expert Server. I don't need to Admin in a Chunk Loader.
