Welcome to Tekkitopia
Hi there, and welcome to our community. Tekkitopia is a community consisting of a mix of players from all over the world. We are a friendly and mature community for people who want to build, craft and socialize.
Tekkitopia has been running for over three years and we have tried everything from Tekkit Classic, Tekkit Lite and Tekkit Main. We are at the moment testing a new clustered server setup with a custom built modpack.
Simply boot up the Technic Launcher, add a new modpack and enter http://www.technicpack.net/api/modpack/tekkitopia as the modpack and you're ready to go!
We're still using seregon.se as the adress so you'll have to either change the pre-defined one (which points to play.tekkitopia.com) or direct connect to it in the meantime.
The first time you start the modpack will take some substantial time, do not fear - it's simply just running through all ore dictionaries and performing the initial setup.
Give it a minute to finish.
Two "planets" exist for you to build in, Voss and Rori.
And one planet to mine from, Bandomeer.
Enjoy, post ideas and improvements and bugs to help us out!
Whilst working and playing on the 1.6.4 Tekkit server we encountered a few issues, bugs, flaws and general drawbacks which got us thinking.
For example, a few bugs appeared - which left us to decide wether to leave it or disable the items related to the bug until Tekkit updates.
And from that point our theorycrafting snowballed.
Why use Tekkit's predefined modpack?
Instead - using a custom modpack would only contribute, we would no longer depend on Tekkit to update, no longer have to face bugs that "will be fixed in the next version" but simply to update it ourselves.
Or even fix it as many mods are open source and also contribute to the modding community.
This will give us a unique experience with high quality mods and be more community-driven in terms of what mods should be included.
Therefore - we'll halt the work on the current setup and instead focus on getting a basic modpack with the various aspects covered and take it from there.
We will keep you posted on the...
Using seregon.se (temporarily) will allow you to connect and test out all the new goodies that (currently) 1.2.8d has to offer.
The server is clustered to distribute load and some things must be kept in consideration, most during the initial period.
- The worlds will be kept as they currently are, with the different portals at spawn taking you there.
- Currently, IF any server crashes the inventory will be wiped globally (to be fixed and announced in due time).
- The server has NO banned items, apart from a few removed mods (Dimensional Doors and Mystcraft) but we will certainly find items that need banning and/or limitation in the future.
We are not responsible for eventual material loss if we decide to remove a certain item.
- Do not place quarries in any of the build worlds, even though (I think) you're currently able to for the next few days.
Not only will we see a upgraded Minecraft (1.6) but also upgraded Galacticraft, Atomic Science, Modular Power Suits, Minefactory Reloaded, Computercraft, Buildcraft, Thermal Expansion, and a lot more. We also have a few new things like Project Red, Big Reactors, Carpenter's Blocks, Waila, Vending Block, Extra Utilities, Redstone In Motion, and Wireless Redstone CBE. We have lost Simple Power Storage, an Obsidian Plate.
Over all, a big upgrade and a lot for things have changed. TE (Thermal Expansion) have redesigned the entire power system, and hundreds of block ID:s and behaviours have changed. Just a upgrade of Seregon is not possible, it will crash horrible.
The addition of the latest version of qcraft adds server-to-server teleporters. This adds the option to move between servers like they was the same server and that's awesome because we can spread the load over several servers (lag in one...
It's running under the good old name Anembra and is a small-scale casually played with plugins resembling those we had on Anembra (Runecraft, Towny, LavaFurnace for example) that are enjoyable but not game-breaking.
Available at mc.anembra.com, livemap here.
Post if you wish to be added to the whitelist, enjoy.
Everybody can trigger the vote with:
Yeah, no worry, I will play and drink beer as well
Update: We have now added more cores and memory to the server. In theory the CPU lag should be less, we will see.
These are the available addresses (yes, I bought a new domain name to collect all seregons servers under):
play.tekkitopia.com (points to seregon.nsg.cc)
seregon.nsg.cc (points to play.seregon.se)
The NYC connection is gone, the need should not be there after the move. The old IP 184.108.40.206 poins to the old server and you can't use it.
Found a problem?, please report it here and I will investigate it.
I do not know when I start and how long the downtime will be, I will most likely start working on the scheduled server restart at 11:00 server time.
I will keep you informed in this thread if there is any updates needed.
