Horrifying...

The cannibalism was tremendous. Every single base, every single build I came across was stripped down to the foundation, nothing of value left.
Worst of all is that some of these things looked like they could have been really cool builds at one time. Huge factories, farms, houses, orchards. Sadly they will never be known.

To me, this defeats the entire purpose of all the work those people put into their system.

For the amount of time some of us have spent on builds, it's just unconscionable that someone could destroy or otherwise allow it to be deleted forever. Sure, accidents happen and that is one thing. But if you're just letting other players tear apart hours and days of work, that's messed up. That is part of the reason I keep the server going: because I know as much work as I've put in on some projects, others have done just as much work or more. And I know I'd be pretty upset if some of that stuff just vanished.

and no im not playing on the vanilla i want to build reactors and jetpacks and crap

:(

Are there any people out there like me that want to play vanilla? I don't mind playing alone, but I love company. :3

Sorry, Pat. There's just something I really enjoy about using resources I've gathered to generate power and gather more resources.
Gotta manage that stuff carefully and explore in the meantime to locate more ways of generating power. Plus other side projects.
That's also not to say there's not much building going on. You have to make an efficient yet appealing structure to house all this nonsense. Caches, hoppers, barrels, crates, all with inputs and outputs to and from machinery that process materials.

It's really neato.
I like some vanilla now and then too though so I may bug you sometime yet. I will say it was always really cool to go on there and see all the various builds.
I'd love to try playing on there with a shader mod too. I can't use those on FTB 'cause it crashes hard.

Yeah I definitely agree on the shader mods. I'd also like to go on there with VR at some point; that sounds very cool and something I would find VR useful for.

Checked another server. I guess on the other hand having the builds around just sitting there is neat but ultimately unrewarding if they're locked and you can only view the outside.
The other problem is that it's still basically a disconnected wasteland with a bunch of builds just sitting there with nobody in them, 50+ active players or no.
Found an abandoned nuclear power plant though. That was neat.

But usually, man, talk about dull. I'm starting to think I won't find what I'm looking for, but then again these are on some big "popular FTB servers" sorta sites which are visited and then abandoned by like 1000 different people a week. lol ima just make a cave in the side of this mountain by myself aw im bored go figure welp guess ill try another server

I dunno. Maybe I'll just start a new build on my own again. I've deleted the last two ones I was doing because I'm a dickhead; got tired of blowing hours on Minecraft and not drawing so poof.
Shame I never took any pictures either.

If you ever build anything cool, save it as a schematic and send it to me! :3

I can get you the server info and whitelist you once you get your client working.

Did you download a fresh install from the website? If you've got an old Minecraft.exe, it might be trying to connect to old servers or be running a outdated version of the patcher.

Is Java up to date and are you running Minecraft as an administrator?

Those are usually the normal issues. Beyond that, I don't know what the heck you people do sometimes to make software not work. But we can try to figure it out if it comes to it. :P

Think I'm supposed to be Admin on the PC, for the Java I'm not sure. Normally my response to anything about Java is "I'd love a cup of coffee."

Oh my god, the only thing more pathetic than the original dedidaded wam question is someone asking it as a joke.

edit: Never mind, the Minecraft novel is the most pathetic thing in the world.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
