We have finally fixed the crash upon pack launch that was affecting half our users. The pack version is now 1.1.9.-1, as it undoes half the 1.1.9 update.
The recent pack update (1.1.9) added Thaumic Tinkerer Kami, which is an endgame Thaumcraft addon, and fixed the client crash when checking the usage of an item with NEI. The update also contains updates to Thaumcraft itself, ChickenBones' mods, and Rotarycraft/Reactorcraft.
A second pack update was tested (126.96.36.199) which contained the latest version of Galacticraft, but it caused server and client crashes upon placement of Electric Compressors. Therefore, the second pack update was dropped. Until the problem is fixed in Galacticraft, we can't update the mod.
Please congratulate Galaxy-Craft's new moderators:
Remember these 5 are volunteering their play time to help keep the server clean and friendly. If you see them online, be sure to say congratulations!
Thank you to everyone who applied. I cannot express the joy it gives me to see so many wanting this server to prosper. It really was a challenge to pick only four, when so many are ready to help. To those who were not accepted, I say don't let that get you down. You are a valuable member of the server, and there is always next time.
The Galaxy-Craft staff regulations can be found here
. All players are free to review the regulations, and all new staff will receive a copy of them. Please note that these regulations are not intended for players to tattle-tale on staff members constantly. Like all rules, there are exceptions that Admins and myself can make based on our own judgement.
The new staff members will be announced later today, and their ranks will be implemented once the server returns to its normal setup.
The recent lag issues on the main map are being investigated. In the mean time, I have set up a temporary blank map for you guys to run around on. This map will not become our permanent map, so do whatever you want on it. There's an NPC at spawn giving away planes for you to play with.
Don't worry, the old map is safe, along with all your claims, items, and buildings!
The bad news:
Flan's Mod is most likely going to be removed, since it's extremely buggy and bypasses claims.
The good news:
Galacticraft will be added to replace Flan's Mod.
I don't know how long I'll need to keep this temporary map up, so please bear with me while I fix the recent issues!
Since we have received nearly no new applications after the first week, I have decided to move the decisions and announcements up.
The new deadline for applications is February 10th.
The new moderators will be announced on February 12th.
Due to these new deadlines, some changes have been made in the requirements, so please review them to see if you qualify. The staff regulations will be released on or before the 12th.
The recent updates have fixed the problem where the pack would keep unzipping, but never launch. A new problem was introduced, however, where the usage function of NEI crashes the client. When in your inventory screen, don't press U or right click an item in the NEI sidebar. Additionally, don't press numpad 4 when looking at a block in the world. We are waiting for a Rotarycraft update to fix the crash.
Recently, there have been some problems with the pack and the launcher that have prevented some players from installing the Galaxy-Craft Modpack. Most often, this is the problem stated in the title, but it can get stuck on other steps too.
I'm currently testing on a fix for this, and should have it out some time today or tomorrow. I apologize to anyone who this has affected, but hopefully we will all be able to play together on the server soon.
I am now actively looking for new moderators. Please submit all applications at:
Must be at least 14 years of age or older, or must prove enough maturity to handle a staff position.
Must be registered on Galaxy-Craft.com for at least 1 month or show enough dedication to Galaxy-Craft.
Must be an active player.
Must not have a history of bans or broken rules on the Galaxy-Craft server.
Applications must be filled with proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation. It doesn't have to be perfect, but do your best.
Applications will no longer be accepted after February 25th.
New moderators will be announced to the server on February 28th.
Accepted applicants will be asked to follow all Staff Regulations to maintain the staff position. I will work with my current staff to find or re-create these regulations and will release them publicly before the 25th.
I look forward to reading everyone's applications!
Sorry about the recent downtime, guys! There was a crash due to a certain block being placed at spawn, but I have just removed the block in a world editor, and the server is working again. I will be working on a fix soon to prevent this from happening again.
