    May I suggest we get Carpenter's Blocks, if we already haven't? CB twinned with Chisel is the best mod-combo for building ever.

    This is not a creative FTB server. We removed a number of mods that didn't add new features, we're not adding one that only adds more blocks.

    That has always been in the pack.

    Whoa, why not Carpenter's? It's a good mod. Are you against nice buildings?

    honestly for carpenter blocks I gotta agree with erik... not for the reason he used though. I love the mod, but when you have a lot of em in one place it can cause both some nasty client lag and server lag

    The problem is also that Carpenter's blocks create a lot of lag, not only serverwise but also FPS-wise, seeing the game considers them all as entities.

    Great mod, but not so great for servers.

    Ah, k. I though they were transparent blocks, like glass, end portal frames, etc

    I've missed Gregtech, but golly gee!!! Crafting an advance circuit is impossible! Now that I got myself a sturdy grinder, nether lapiz ore doesn't turn into dust. It turns into crushed lapis ore. What the heck is that?! I guess I'll have to get started on rotarycraft, break bedrock, then mine an overworld lapis ore. Getting a silk touch enchantment would be another way, but the odds are stacked against me on that possiblility.

    How in the world did you guys at Ace Industries get so far up ahead in such little time? I'm still a cave dweller and I'm on my third day already. I feel like a noob after I saw your base. :(

    FYI, guys. I've noticed the following oddities while playing these couple of days.

    1. A number of items don't stack like they should & some even change from the time that I mine them to the moment they appear in my inventory (i.e., saltpeter dusts, sapphires, rubies, carrots, etc...). A case in point is the peridot ore (Biomes O' Plenty) which magically turns into Olivine (Gregtech Addon). Is that suppose to happen?

    2. HSLA steel ingot from Rotarycraft turns into Pig Iron as soon as I place them into my inventory directly from the Blast furnace.

    3. Unable to get started on Advance Genetics since I'm not able to craft the magnifier for the very first machine (DNA Analyser). :(

    I'll let you all know if notice anymore weird things as I go. :)

    Advanced genetics was turned off on the server, your client may still have it enabled.

    As for the items changing to different ones, there is a thing called unification in Gregtech which converts items.
    Things have already been turned off in his settings, while others may have been missed; Ex: HSLA Steel -> Pig Iron.

    really? adv gen was one of the mods that got pulled? damn.

    Oh my beloved "fly" gene. Where art thou? All I'm left with is this yearning for a bedrock pickaxe so that I may mine an overworld lapis lazuli ore, grind it into dust in a sturdy grinder, and then finally craft the elusive advance circuit needed for my much desired electric jetpack. LOL.

    So Rotarycraft is an "active" mod, except for the Gregtech "Unification-thingy" which will be turned off soon? I hope so. I needs me some Ghast tears for my reuseable safari nets and it's just way too hard to kill them when I'm unable to get airborne.

    Damn you Gregtech! I've missed you, but you've turned out to be like an old lover who hasn't changed a bit. You're still a complicated, mean bitch. :D

    TY, Cyber. I'll look into it. Meanwhile, regular safari nets will suffice for my animal farm.

    IT guys at work started blocking "game" sites again so I'm not able to play while on the clock. What's weird is that I'm able to play Vanilla MC on the Survival server. Seems like they're only able to block the FTB launcher somehow. :(
