Enigmatica 2

Howdy @everyone!

We’ve launched the Enigmatica 2 pack, and believe me, it’s a lot of fun!
Theres a few things that changed, one of these is that we’re no longer running on Sponge. This increased the server’s tickrate by a lot.

This also comes with a downside, which is that we needed to re-setup a lot of basic stuff like your ranks and what-not.
This is also the reason for this post. If you log in and find out that your rank is missing, let a member of staff know. They will change your rank to the correct one!
(You have to be online for the rank to be edited, so we can see that it went well).

Our #suggestion channel is open and we’re looking forward to your guys’ feedback 🙂

Patreons now get 3 homes to set, as was requested.
One-time donors now get 2 homes to set as was requested.

As is usual, and without any hesitation:
HUGE thank you to all our patreons and donors. You motivate us to keep this community great 🙂
Patreons: Casper85, Wallespider, Ninjatree42 and SanyaLitvyakZ
Donors: IncredibleBob

Change the modpack to…

Howdy partners,

It’s been in the works for a while, but we think the time is ripe to change our primary modpack. We’ll be doing this in the most Boothill fashion, by polling our next modpack with the community. This poll will be up for 13 days, this means that on November 8th we will reach a verdict and the Boothill will transform from a Direwolf20 server into the modpack most voted on.

New server modpack options:

  • Enigmatica 2 (47%, 16 Votes)
  • FTB Revelation (35%, 12 Votes)
  • Infinity Evolved (18%, 6 Votes)

Total Voters: 34

About Infinity Evolved

The pack for all people. Infinity is the general all-purpose pack from the FTB team that is designed for solo play as well as small and medium population servers. This pack contains Fastcraft, by Player. Fastcraft enhances Minecraft with increased performance. Bug reports being made directly to Mod Authors should state Fastcraft is enabled.

About Enigmatica

Quests! There are currently over 800 quests, that help you get into different mods. The pack offers over 250 different mods, such as Thermal Expansion, Biomes O’ Plenty, Tinkers’ Construct, Mekanism, Chisel, Pam’s Harvestcraft & Immersive Engineering. The pack aims to have everything as balanced as possible, without gating. Power generation has been tweaked so generators that aren’t usually worth the effort, might be in this pack. IndustrialCraft2 EU can be converted to RF, and vice versa, with Mekanism.

About FTB Revelations

Revelation is a general all-purpose modpack with optimal FPS, server performance and stability.  This is the largest pack ever built to date, by the Feed The Beast Team. Revelation is not a themed pack nor a focused pack, it’s a pack designed to cater to a large amount of players, whether you like tech mods, magic mods, exploration, building or all of those then this pack is for you. Large well-known mods such as EnderIO, Applied Energistics, Thaumcraft, Botania, Thermal Expansion, Immersive Engineering and Project Red are present in Revelation, as well as some lesser known mods like Rustic, Gadgetry,  Thut’s Elevators and xnet.

Questions

What will happen with the Direwolf20 world?
It will go out with a… bang! But we will make sure that a world download will be available before we blow it up.

How long until the new modpack is live?
After the poll has ended, we will begin work on transferring the world to a save file, zipping it and begin transferring to our new modpack. On the 9th of November, we will launch the new modpack together. We will focus the first day on a community spawn, but feel absolutely free to head off in your own path.

When will the new modpack launch?
On the 9th of November, the new modpack will be live. The time for launch will be 15:00 (3:00 pm) CET. (Click here to view this time in your local time).

Yesterday evening, I was enjoying my rest on the front porch, gun in my lap and boots resting next to me. The sun was slowly going down and I fell asleep. I dreamt of something amazing. Community events.

Here’s the deal, we are in the talks of hosting a weekly or bi-weekly event. Low key, but server wide. Everyone can join in, opt out or just blatantly ignore the happening. However, the more people join, the better the event will be!

So what kind of events are we talkin’ bout?

What server community events are you interested in?

Let us know what you think. As always, thanks to our patreons Incrediblebob, Wallespider & Ninjatree for their support <3

And… one more!

Heya peoples, some of you might already know, some might not. We asked for moderators and our community delivered! I request a warm applause for our new mod Incrediblebob! I will leave the rest of this post to him:

____________________________________

Hey people of The Boothill.

I’ve applied for the position of moderator and part of that application is to produce an opening statement should I be accepted, so here it is…right here… just about to start any moment now….

<Title here>
Since I’ve joined The Boothill I’ve seen the server and community go from strength to strength, and seen the work both Blur & Thanks put in to ensure our time on the server is as enjoyable as possible.
I would like to contribute to this server and the community, and I believe becoming a moderator would be a fantastic way to do this. I already support the server monthly as I really do like the way it is run, and here I am, wanting to do more.

As some of you might have noticed, I like to help out where I can, with knowledge, items and anything I can offer. I never do this for something in return, I just really like to help people, and watch them progress their game. My hope is that a friendly, happy server will keep people here week after week, and this is my small part in making that happen.

I’ve started a few simple guides that I hope to finish in the next few weeks (time permitting), such as getting started with ae2 processor automation (pre ME system), Bob’s simple mob farm and some more yet to be named guides. I’m hoping these will contribute to the community on the server and keep the players happy and moving forward towards any goals they have set.

Should I be accepted as a moderator, I promise to stay the same bob I’ve always been, just a bob with better troubleshooting tools!

A thought to close on: Why do we speak with British accents, when we’re from outer space and there is no Britain?

Do not underestimate the power of the Thumb.

Hands up for our new Moderator!

Heya peeps, please welcome @Sgt_Hankey to the mod team 🙂 You probably know the drill, so Ill leave the rest of this post to Hankey!

___________________________________________________

Hello, hello everyone!
So, a moderator I am. I have been with this community since early August, and I have enjoyed my time here. I hope not just to continue the good times, but to make them even better going forward.

Not better because of my adminhood, but better because this has always been my plan! My great scheme! We will have so much fun, if you want to. 🙂

This whole admin thing is just a neat little thing on the side. I will continue to strive to be a helpful and goofy dude, as I assume most of you have thought of me so far.

See you around on the server, and feel free to contact me for guidance about anything at all, at any time, as you were welcome to do before as well.

Cheers!

Should we remove Refined Storage?

Hey peeps. Its without enthousiasm that we decided to ask this of you.

Refined storage is badly optimized and makes for most of the server lag. Thats why we wanted to ask you to vote for this poll.

Remove refined storage? The bane of all the lag

If we remove RF, we will have to look in to how to do this. Please suggest your ideas to #suggestions

 

Close the whitelist?

Hey peeps! I have heard some talk around the server, both from players and from staff, that we should consider closing the whitelist. As in true Boothill fashion, we will poll this and ask you guys what you think. The poll has three options and will run for a week, starting today. After that we will make a decision based on the votes.

Here’s my upside/downside vision for closing the whitelist:

Upside:
No more strangers joining the server. We can fully focus on this community. We know the community, even the newest members.
Less potential for lag, we only have the community as it is now, so no new players making insane machinery that could kill the server.

Downside:
The server will slowly die out, as in, lose a player every week on average.
No new players, so no new friends to hang out with.

An alternative would be to stop advertising the server. Right now, we post once every two weeks on Reddit. If you check the whitelist applications, you can see that most people come from there. We could just stop advertising the server, and see how that goes. Anyhow, let us know what you think.

If you have a better idea than was stated here, put it in #suggestions on Discord!

 

Close the whitelist

  • Just don't actively advertise the server (65%, 13 Votes)
  • No (25%, 5 Votes)
  • Yes (10%, 2 Votes)

Total Voters: 20

The results are in… NEW DONOR REWARDS!

Hey peeps, as by the poll, we have taken the most popular features and applied them to the donor role! So, these are the new perks:

With 18% of the votes, donors will now have access to /tpa and /tpahere.

With 16% of the votes: Donors have also received access to set an extra home with /sethome [name] and to teleport to them with /home [name].

With 14% of the votes: Donors will be able to get a void world, this is a function we’re currently working on. Please give us a little time, you will be able to request yours soon 🙂

 

I want to give a special shout-out to our two patroons:

Incrediblebob and Ninjatree. If you see them in-game, tell them they’re awesome!

New donation perks – poll edition

Hey peeps! Let’s talk donation perks.

We have been brainstorming about what we could offer as a reward for players who support the server. And as in true Boothill fashion, we will poll this with you!

You can choose multiple answers, so feel free to choose any you like and think would suit as a reward for supporting the server.

I want to make sure you know that donations are not meant to be a pay to win solution. We will never rely on donations, they just serve as a boost of confidence for the amount of work the staff team puts in every day. We are always up for suggestions in the Discord server. Let us know what you think and if you have any ideas or additions to the poll, let us know <3

Have fun, Thanks_again

New Dedicated server

Hey everyone! We’ve successfully migrated to an overpowered dedicated server! The server specs are as follows:

CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1270 v6 @ 3.80GHz
RAM: 32 GB DDR4
Drives: 2 x HDD SATA 2TB
500GB Backup Drive
Location: London – United Kingdom

This will help us maintain a more stable 20tps! Now please don’t try to push the server to it’s limits and try to build a base that doesn’t lag everyone when they arrive.

As you can see on Patreon the total server costs have landed at €64 a month. Therefore, if you want to pitch in, feel free to become a patroon! We’ve launched a new rank called Omega, and as you’re used to by now, it’s just a fancy Discord title and an ingame color. However, we will give you massive credits for helping us out.

In other news, we now have a pretty strong machine running the server smoothly. Why don’t we host some events soon?! Drop your ideas in the Discord 🙂
