Alrighty folks - the wait is over. Those of you who've been craving a Modded MC experience have to wait no longer - Age of Rebirth is here. We've got some big plans for the modpack as time goes on, however for this initial release we're focused on getting something comparable to a less-buggy Brink of Chaos available. Most of our ideas include more story-driven/RPG elements, but not much of this exists except for some structures here and there - and the actual premise of the modpack. You may (or may not) be wondering, how does Survival Minecraft fit into any sort of tangible or believable plot or world? Well, the answer is this: That is the description of the modpack on Technic, as well as on the modpack webpage. Several aspects of the modpack have been designed to help "sell" this premise - as you'll discover through playing. A handful of hand-made structures are placed around (with more to pop up here and there), but a number of natural structures have also been introduced - the details of which I'll let you discover on your own. There has been a fair bit of testing done, albeit this was earlier in the year. Even so, some bugs are expected here and there. If you find any new bugs, you can submit any bug reports in the Age of Rebirth section in the bug tracker. Installing the modpack is the same process as Brink of Chaos. If you need additional help installing the pack, just CLICK HERE for an installation guide. The rest of the topic will be spent on going into some of the new additions to the modpack. If you'd like to avoid spoilers, then feel free to stop reading here and go play the pack. New Features Spawn - Finally! An actual spawn! I know! Crazy to think about! It's nothing too crazy, but it's a drastic improvement compared to past spawns if you ask me. Granted, that doesn't exactly say much - but hey. Gotta start somewhere right? The main goal was to build something that properly takes advantage of modded blocks. Flans Mod - An actual wide array of weapons and vehicles! The old Brink of Chaos modpack had a "wide range of weaponry", according to the old webpage for it. Well, Age of Rebirth actually has a lot of weaponry. And vehicles. Aircraft tends to be buggy so I'd advise avoiding those, but land vehicles and handheld weapons work just fine. + Added Immersion A couple mods have been added to help increase immersion. Dynamic Surroundings adds additional sound effects such as environmental sounds, as well as footstep sounds. Fancy Block Particles makes all particles 3D instead of 2D. Most recently, we've added Real First Person 2 - which makes it so that you aren't just a floating camera in first person. Rather, you're a full person with legs, arms, and a body. It has several different modes and you can cycle through them with F1 - one of which turns it off, if you aren't a fan of it. Other New Mods Along with the highlights above, a number of other mods have been introduced, including but not limited to: Advanced Chimneys Catwalks Compact Machines Doomlike Dungeons Food Expansion Iron Backpacks MCFrames Modular Powersuits ReAuth Recurrent Complex RFTools Roguelike Dungeons Ropes Plus Tinker's Mechworks Waystones WorldEdit CUI Other Additions/Changes Custom logo/colors during Forge initialization New font used throughout the modpack New hotbar/UI design (can be disabled using a built-in resource pack) DefaultKeys mod added, which means that config options and keybindings won't get reset with each update Ding mod added to play a little "ding" when the modpack is fully booted New main menu music ITLT mod added which allows for a custom application icon and window title Bugfixes! Some of the following major issues have been fixed: Laser mod no longer mass spams console when using reflector blocks DIMENSION PORTALS WORK PROPERLY AND PERFECTLY FINALLY, NO MORE HAVING TO WARP TO DIMENSIONS Skins no longer break down and display incorrectly when switching between worlds OpenBlocks elevators now place the proper color (not craftable yet, coming soon) A couple other help topics have been posted and pinned in the Age of Rebirth subforum as well feel free to give those a look-over. Otherwise, just boot up the modpack and have fun!
Hey, everyone! I think we're due for some updates as the holidays approach! New Hub First up - fitting with the holidays, we've introduced a brand new hub! That's right - not just a modified version of our current hub for the holidays, but a brand new hub. Not only that, but this new hub will continue to be in service after the holidays (with less snow and ice of course). After years of basically the same hub with minor tweaks, and continuously growing hubs, we wanted to take a step back and make a smaller, cozier hub. Along with that, we wanted to echo back to the earlier days of CU with the design - which is why the hub is once more in a biosphere. You old bois might remember that several old CU spawns were located in biospheres. We figure that such a design is fitting for a return to smaller spawns. They were dropped with the introduction of "MegaSpawn" - which was the sort of codename for the large spawn that was a mashup of a bunch of old CU and ND spawns. If you aren't able to hop on, enjoy a few screenshots of the new hub: CUAuctions Here soon, we plan to introduce a custom-coded Auctions plugin for use in Survival and SkyBlock! Auctions are a fun way to sell specific items in a bidding war! Our original plan was to find an already available auctioning plugin, but it seems that most modern auction plugins take an "eBay-like" approach, where you essentially post a listing for an item, rather than the traditional "Player has started an auction! Do /bid to bid!" type of auction. So - we'll be handling that ourselves. We don't have a release date for it set, but expect it to show up before the end of the year (unless things go horribly wrong). Status of Modded MC and Beta 1.7.3 Both Modded MC as well as Beta 1.7.3 have been neglected pretty heavily for a long time. If you haven't been keeping up on our Discord, you'll no doubt have already heard that we've been working on a new modpack to act as a successor to Brink of Chaos in order to revitalize our Modded MC offering. Brink of Chaos has been a fairly disorganized mess since its inception - in terms of mod list, server features, and even versioning. For those of you who haven't kept up with the changelogs, the versions basically jumped from 1.0.0 to 1.7.0 with absolutely nothing in between. Why is that? No idea. Apparently they were all internal testing builds? You'll have to ask the haloman30 of the past on that one. With the new modpack (whose name we're keeping secret for now), we plan to refine and redefine Brink of Chaos' goals. The initial release will essentially be an optimized and more streamlined version of what Brink of Chaos offered, acting as a foundation for the future. Fun fact - we offer a MC Beta 1.7.3 server! You may or may not have known that since we've given it next to no love and care until very recently. Originally the plan was to have it sit untouched as just "a thing that exists", similar to TeamSpeak - and while we aren't gonna be investing quite the same amount of effort into it compared to our other services, we do want to help it have a level of quality. For instance - the spawn. The previous spawn for Beta 1.7.3 was abysmal. It was trying to sort of emulate the spawn of old CU's Beta 1.7.3 spawn, except it was worse in basically every way. The new spawn actually looks halfway decent - through abandoning the original idea of making things look "from the era". Part of why the old spawn was so plain and boring is because it was built partially with the design styles that people used in the past. Which, while it can yield some good results, this wasn't it chief. The new spawn is a major overhaul - and with that new spawn, comes a brand new world on a brand new seed. The original seed was just the famous gargamel seed (though not as famous as the likes of Glacier). This new seed is a custom seed, chosen based on a community seed suggestion we did on Discord a little while back. We can't disclose the seed for obvious reason - can't have people using tools to find goodies offline! We'll be doing more stuff to Beta 1.7.3 as well, stay tuned for more details on that in the coming weeks/months/however long. A Note Regarding Minecraft/Server Exploits Something that was previously neglected from our rules (I could've sworn it was there at some point) but has technically always been a rule is regarding exploits. As a general rule, they are not allowed. If you're using something that utilized a glitch or bug in the behavior of a plugin, Bukkit, or Minecraft itself - you'll receive a warning, jail, or a ban outright depending on the severity. As an added note, since I've had some people bring up this as a defense, something being possible in vanilla Minecraft has not, and will never be a deciding factor in whether or not something is or isn't allowed. Mind you, on old CU back in 2012, you could get banned on the spot for using a piston glitch to convert stone bricks into mossy, cracked, or chiseled stone bricks (called "circle stone" at the time ). I don't plan or want to go that far, but the general sentiment still remains. Don't try and break the game to gain an advantage - you'll have to face the consequences if you do. Update Notes Before we close off, I'd like to remind everyone that we have a blog for changelogs for the website, forums, and servers! Anytime we make a change or fix to anything in the community, an entry is posted in our Update Notes blog. Sometimes these things get an announcement, but usually they don't. For example, here's a few of the noteworthy changes you might have missed out on: Nuclear District Topic Polls - Previously, all topics from the Nuclear District forums that had polls showed a random and irrelevant poll. I went through some local archives I took before ND closed to re-create the poll data by hand and point the old topics towards it. Not all topics got their polls back, but some is better than none, right?

You'll get notified any time we publish a changelog. Additionally, those changelogs send a notification to #forums-feed on our Discord server - so you can keep an eye on them there, too.
Right so, I've gotten back to minecraft recently and have been addicted to Brink of Chaos because of, but not only, Thaumcraft 4. As I've been really into thaumcraft and stuff, I wanna suggest adding some addons to enhance the mod; like Thaumic Tinkerer, that adds a bunch of new and cool stuff to play around with. I'd also like to suggest the addition of the mod ChickenChunks. This mod adds a block to let the chunks loaded when a player is not around, so your farm and stuff will still grow and work nicely. I don't know how this is going to work towards lag, but as not many players have been on lately I assume not many people will be using this so it shouldnt be causing any lag. Thanks
