Optifine & MadPack

For those interested, I went ahead and downloaded every version of Optifine HD since 1.5, trying to get it to play nice with MadPack.  Only versions that work are Optifine 1.6.4 HD C6 & Optifine 1.6.4 HD U C6 (Ultra).  I got the best performance boost out of the Standard Version, but feel free to play with it yourself! (Just drag & drop in your mods folder… Don’t do anything fancy)

Server is on 1.2.6 Madpack!

For those still interest in joining our server, we are testing stability in 1.2.6 and things are looking pretty solid. I will be upgrading the server with an SSD & more memory so this should add some stability. I’ll send out then application form hopefully by the end of the week! Thanks for your patience!

Quick Update!

I added a small mod that enables sirens & warning indicators for Nuclear plants.  In order to install, just download the following file from my DropBox (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7984823/IC2NUCLEARCONTROL-1.6.2E-IC2-EXPERIMENTAL.zip). As you normally would, open ATLauncher then go to Instances and click “Edit Mods”

Click “Add Mod” in the lower left hand corner, select the directory you saved the DropBox file and make sure to select “Mods Folder” under the “Type Of Mod” drop down, click Add

Capture

By default it will show disabled, so make sure you hit the check box and hit the “Enable Mod” button.  You should be good to go!

Let me know if you have any specific requests, it looks like we have a bit of freedom to add other mods to this pack, I can keep the files in my DropBox to make sure we are all using the same client info.

Best,

Rojas

Minecraft 1.6.4 – Using Oculus Rift with ATLauncher Mod Packs/Technical Packs

So I recently bought an Oculus Rift and in anticipation of its arrival I wanted to get it working on heavily modded Minecraft versions (1.6.4).

Before I begin, I’m no expert on this, however I fought and fought until I finally got it working with pretty much any modpack @ 1.6.4…  Please keep in mind this tutorial is probably best for advanced users: I do not guarantee compatibility and usability between the GUI mods (aka minimaps etc) along with the Oculus Rift.  I have however gotten the Minecrift Mod to work with other Modpacks such as  Tekkit/Hexxit/and various others with ATLauncher.  Props go to MrLambo for his FTB tutorial, it was a big help in figuring out how to get Minecrift working with other mods.  Before doing this, it is usually best to backup your .minecraft, delete everything and start from scratch…Here is how it works:

1. First follow this tutorial on how to install Minecrift WITH FORGE!!!: Minecrift Install

2. Once that is done, go ahead and install whatever you want…via Tekkit, ATLauncher, etc.  You just need to remember where the install folder is depending on what you installed… (for ATLauncher after you install an ‘instance’ it would be something like… C:\Users\XXXXXX\Desktop\Minecraft Server\Instances\TheMadPack for Tekkit/Hexxit it would be something like C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Roaming\.technic\modpacks)

3. Open your Minecraft Launcher (should already be ready for Minecrift/Forge), create a new profile using the bottom left button… Here is what you need to change in your ‘Profile Editor’ settings:

Profile Name: Whatever you want
Game Directory: This should be whatever you installed to above so for mine example using “Mad Pack on ATLauncher” it is…

C:\Users\Rojamahorse\Desktop\Minecraft Server\Instances\TheMadPack

Version Selection: Make sure ‘Enable experimental development versions (“snapshots”)’ is checked off

Use version: Select release minecrift-1.6.4-b12-forge-nohydra (or whichever forge version you installed was

JVM Arguments: Cut and Paste the following without the quotes “-XX:MaxPermSize=512m -XX:PermSize=512m -Dfml.ignorePatchDiscrepancies=true -Dfml.ignoreInvalidMinecraftCertificates=true”

4. Save your profile and you should be good to go

Essentially this is just forcing the Vanilla Launcher to use different launch parameters, a different Modified Directory other than your .minecraft folder, while still using the Minecrift 1.6.4.jar. You should be able to launch directly from your Minecraft Launcher (1.3.8 currently).  You will not want to launch using Tekkit or ATLauncher.  I really hope this helps!

 

1.4.6 Is Now Live!!

Happy New Year!

Many apologies for the delay in updates, thing have been quite busy as of late.  We have upgraded to Craftbukkit 1.4.6 and have upgraded most of our add-ons accordingly, please let me know if you find any bugs and I’ll do my best to fix in a timely manner.

Best Wishes,

Roja

1.4.5 Live!

We are now fully upgraded to 1.4.5! Feel free to update your clients and hop back on.  McBans has also been re-enabled, thanks to dino_mania & BadBoy165 for griefing and motivating me to update the plugin.  Congratulations, you have both been banned and reported to the Minecraft community

… And for anyone else looking to come to our server and grief, it takes me all of the press of a single button to undo any damage done by TNT thanks to macros & hawkeye… hope you enjoyed wasting your time! 🙂
