    After much discussion, we've decided to shut down the private ftb server. With the opening of, popularity on the other server pretty much went down to one or two people. Since it isn't reasonable to keep the server going for such a small audience, we're deciding to go in a different direction. That's where you all come in.

    What would you like to see replace the server? The only options that aren't available are any tech packs that are similar to ultimate (mindcrack, direwolf, etc.) or a plain vanilla server. Here's some ideas
    • DivineRPG
    • FTB New World Pack
    • FTB Magic Farm
    • FTB Infamy (Warfare pack)
    • Bukkit Apocalypse server
    • Many more
    Just let me know what you all might want.

    EDIT: A download link of the old world will be posted when it is available.

    i think Divine RPG sounds pretty sweet, adds like 115 new mobs, a butt ton of new weapons like cannons and throwing knifes, seems pretty sweet =)

    Basicially, zombies have over run the world. As the last group of survivors it is your job to save the human race.

    The only way to get items is to find them in chests or sometimes dropped off zombies. Swords will break very quickly so you will have to go looking for them very often. There are some sort of quests scattered around the map that serve as objectives for the game.

    It is very much like dayz servers.

    Sounds like the old ShadeCrest survival situation (hardcore). I don't think many players would like this...

    The focus is different, rather than trying to survive in a difficult situation the aim is to complete all of the objectives or kill the most zombies. Also, you usually can't destroy the environment in apocalypse mode.

    I would like something without building rules. I mean, I think the apocalypse server would never catch on. Something fairly simple maybe?

    Well what if you were to use world edit commands and set it up like that for quick resets?

    A survival faction server with grief stealing and such? These servers I find are extremely popular and so much fun to play on.

    I like the idea of anything to do with magic or adventuring; it would be a nice counterpart to the servers already on offer.
  14. I love the magic farm pack, so that's my vote :D

    How about a server that rotates fun things, like the MC version of TTT, Ghost Craft, MineZ, Wasted, and any other cool mini-games we find. We could also throw the sun apoc. server into the mix every so often, but keep it going for longer than the other things (like 3 weeks instead of 1).

    This kind of stuff is all being considered for the SG server, post any suggestions on the SG forums.

    Maybe we could have shade crest public projects where we create a world and terraform/build a world and maybe when we are done send the world out as a custom map. For other mine craft players to play and look at.
    Sort of like everyone gets a town or can help with one and they build it up and make a giant continent of towns, kingdoms, castles, villages, and such. :D

    While I agree this sounds like a good idea in theory, we have nowhere near the level of community participation required for a project of this scale Imo. Although a single kingdom scale thing may work, but like with the competitions, people would be enthusiastic for about a week, and then we'd have half finished builds all over the place.

    Yeah maybe that will be the case or something but we could start small with people just making 1 house for a city or something to test how this works.

    We came up with a similar discussion with the Voltz server idea. I think this is the best one so far, we run a (possibly unbalanced? just to make it interesting) apocalyptic server, with regular map resets/pack changes.

    If we find a way to implement factions/teams, we could run it as a monthly tournament thing. A bunch of teams would go in for a week and stockpile all they can in preparation for the Rhana Dandra (final battle) at the end of said week.

    The regular resets should help keep things fresh, and game pack changes should work well.

    We could also have a team that makes landmarks for future games. As in not make a whole map, but maybe insert a few prebuilt towns, towers or caves.
