Bugs and glitches / MOVED: another glitch in FTB

Famcraft Survival / New /seen page
« on: June 21, 2014, 08:29:31 PM »
Great news for anyone wishing they had access to the /seen command. We've written a piece of software which scans all our player files and produces a list displaying the last time each player logged out of the survival server.


There are some things to keep in mind about this list:
  • it doesn't display banned players
  • it doesn't display staff members
  • it will hopefully get a face lift in the near future
If you notice any odd glitches in the list, feel free to let me know here.

Famcraft Survival / Grief Revert Fields Eliminated
« on: March 21, 2014, 03:23:13 PM »
Effective immediately we are disabling and eliminating the option to create and use Grief Revert fields. They have always had extremely limited utility, have always confused players. If you for some reason relied on them, please use emerald or diamond blocks instead.

If you've never heard of grief revert fields, good :)

General Discussion / 500k for a list of blocks
« on: December 23, 2013, 11:19:29 PM »
The Craftbook Bridge materials list was reset a few months ago after an update and we didn't notice it until after all our old config backups got erased. This means that right now you can only make a bridge out of 4 types of materials: cobble, wood planks (all types), glass, and all doubleslabs blocks. I would like players to be able to build bridges out of any block in the game, specifically the 1.7.2 verison of the game.

Look at the attached image at the bottom of this post. It's a chart of all the item IDs in Minecraft. The ID Number that belongs to a block or item is always above the block or item. For example, Stone is #1. Grass is number 2.

I need a list of blocks created in the following format:


The first part is a dash. The second part is a number. The number is the ID of the block or half block.

The list should include all blocks and half blocks from the 1.7.2 version of minecraft. All those blocks are in the image below but I need them to be copied out and put into a list like above. You may end up with 100 lines, each line having a dash and a number.

The first player who compiles such a list and submits it to me by PM in the forums will get 500k. The second and third players, so they don't just waste their time, will get 200k and 100k respectively.

Be sure to refresh this thread often if you choose to do this so you won't be working on it after I've accepted 3 submissions.

I do not need blocks' meta data. Just the number before the : will suffice because the plugin will allow all subtypes or whatever automatically.

Please use the 1.7.2 list of blocks so we'll be up to date when we get 1.7.2. It's attached below.

Good luck!

General Discussion / Possible closure of the Voltz server
« on: July 06, 2013, 12:52:54 AM »
It has been proposed that we shut down the Voltz server. The PVP and base blowing up has not been very popular with Famcraft players who are used to extensive protections. Most players don't like to work a lot just to have their stuff blown up in seconds. There are also lots of bugs in every version of the mod pack we tried. And because of those reasons, there is usually no one on the server, which keeps other people from wanting to log on to the server. Thanks for your vote/thoughts.

General Discussion / Famcraft Voltz: this server has been shut down
« on: May 03, 2013, 05:26:17 AM »

Famcraft Voltz
Server Address:

or the IP:

To connect to Famcraft Voltz, you only need to download the Technic Launcher, run it, select Voltz pack to install it, then you need to follow these instructions to manually change your mod pack version:

After you're done, connect to voltz.famcraft.com

The object of this server is to blow up other players' bases with bombs, rockets, grenades, and ICBMs! You can be killed! You can be griefed! But there are technologies to keep your base from being griefed and blown up. It's all part of the Voltz pack. It includes some of the mods that are in Feed the Beast, too.

You can read a little more about this mod pack and see some videos here:

For now, please keep Voltz forum discussion here in this thread. If the server gets popular enough we will make a subforum for it. Voltz will also share an IRC channel with Feed The Beast on esper.net: #famcraftftb

Items currently disabled:
antimatter Missile Crafting
nuclear Missile Crafting
redMatter Missile Crafting

There is currently a world border with a radius of 3000 blocks from the center of the world. I don't know whether that's a circle or square. I've confined the world to this size for now for the purposes of encouraging active warfare.

Good luck, have fun, and I don't want to hear any whining when your base gets blown up :D

Famcraft Tutorials, Links and Info / Clan tags and how to color them
« on: March 30, 2013, 05:16:21 PM »
When we updated the server to 1.5.1, we had to update SimpleClans to their new 2.0 beta. This has resulted in loss of a few features which they say they're working on adding back, but it also grayed out everyone's clan tag. Here's how to fix it!

First, you must change your tag to ANYTHING other than what you have right now. SimpleClans is a little dumb because if you try to change your gray clan tag to the same letters but with colors, it will tell you that clan tag already exists. So, if your tag is BNVS, change it to BNVS2 like this:

/clan modtag BNVS2

Next, color your tag like so:

/clan modtag &1BN&6VS

That will make it BNVS

If you mess up, just rename your tag to something random again, and then try again.

** (Edited by RubensCherub) Remember you're not allowed to use &4's dark red without admin approval, and even then only a limited number of characters will be considered. NO completely red tags will be allowed.

If you have questions or need help, please post here with what kind of colors you're trying to set up and we'll try to help.

 DO NOT use any code that is not clearly listed below.

 0  - Black
 1  - Dark Blue
 2  - Dark Green   
 3  - Teal
 4 -  Dark red
 5  - Fuscia
 6  - Golden Yellow
 7  - Light Gray
 8  - Dark Gray
 9  - Periwinkle Blue
 a  - Lime Green
 b  - Sky Blue
 c  - Coral
 d  - Hot Pink
 e  - Bright Yellow
 f   - White

Bugs and glitches / God mode glitch
« on: August 09, 2012, 11:06:25 AM »
It's been brought to our attention that this release candidate of bukkit may cause players to stop taking damage from anything in the game. If you find this to happen to your account, you must alert a mod and/or admin immediately. We have a solution for it, so if we see you taking advantage of it, punishments will definitely ensue. Thanks! :)

Questions, comments, complaints, clarifications....

bknysnake has made available a PO Box where we can receive donations from those of you who want to donate but have no access to a credit/debit card. The default payment methods via mail are cash or money order. US Dollars only. (Other currencies are accepted via PayPal).

If you utilize the mail to send in a donation, you should take a few important steps to increase the odds that your donation will arrive intact:

    If you send cash, we recommend you put the cash in a birthday-style card. This will prevent people from feeling the cash through the envelope. Any kind of card will suffice. If you want to write a few words to bknysnake, go for it :D
    If you send a money order, we recommend either using a privacy envelope or wrapping the money order in 2 pieces of paper. The goal is to keep people from being able to hold your envelope up to a light to see what's in it. Money orders can be found at the post office, grocery stores, gas stastions, etc. Any kind should be fine. We prefer not to accept personal or business checks. If you are worried about your donation being lost of stolen, use a money order and keep its stub to be able to file a dispute with the money order company if the check never reaches us.
    The above tips are things you should always think about when using the US Mail system because of thieving postal workers.
    Include your minecraft username on a piece of paper.

Make money orders payable to:
Micah Gibson

Address the envelope to:
Micah Gibson
401 N Fredericksburg St #2105
San Marcos, TX 78666
