The Boothill version 4.0!

Can you believe we’ve been at this server for over 9 months?! Well, things are only going up from here.

Right now we’re creating our own Modpack, and after switching the servers around a bit we’ve landed on our own Dedicated Machine again. Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads-up that the downtime we expected will be around 1-2 hours. This means you will be able to log in with the ip:


Now that we have a dedicated machine we will be working more on some sweet functions like an online map, some better server statistics and a bunch of new Patreon perks!

Thanks for being patient, we’re running our soles off our boots to get everything set-up.

Introducing: The Boothill: Avalanche at Devils Ridge

Howdy people!

We’ve got some exciting news for you.
The Boothill is working on a custom modpack! Don’t worry, Enigmatica 2 is not going to disappear over-night… We’re still developing the pack.

However, YOU are able to test the pack out on our second server (Sponsored by the incredible mister Bob).

About the pack:
The modlist is not definitive. As we said, we are adding and removing mods left and right, seeing how they work and if we like them.
It’s a 1.15 modpack, meaning we have the latest addition of Minecraft: Bees! There are a lot of upsides to 1.15 and some temporary downsides (most famous mods haven’t been updated to 1.15 yet).
We have a few tech mods and one magic mod with a small amount of information available.

The complete modlist can be found on the curseforge modpack page here:

How to play
Download the modpack through the twitch/curse launcher (search for Boothill or Avalanche). Load the pack and join the server. The IP is already filled in for your convenience 🙂

Found a bug?
Report it in the #bugreport channel on Discord. Please try to be thorough, as “I found a bug with a bucket” isn’t something we can work with. Provide information and/or screenshots/crash logs if possible.

Too long, didn’t read:
New modpack in the making by The Boothill. Download it here:

The server IP is automatically set, and players who have been whitelisted on The Boothill (Enigmatica 2) will be able to log in to this server as well.
If a new user wishes to be whitelisted for this modpack then please contact the Boothill staff.

Merry Christmas!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor minecraft happy new year 2020

Howdy players! 2020 is nearing us, and so is a change to the Boothill.

First, lets look back at 2019.

The Boothill started out on the 8th of June. Together with a friend of mine we set up the server with the Direwolf20 pack.
We used a big host and started with a -way too small- amount of ram (dare I say 2 gigs…).

I had a lot of free time, so I set out to setting up the DW20 pack as best as I could. With about 6 players and a butload of fun, we quickly grew out of the small amount of ram.
I needed to upgrade, which I did within two weeks.
This was also the point we decided that the server would be player-voted.

More players joined, one of which was Blur, the person most of you now know as our dev/admin.
Our most favorite mods Hankey and Incrediblebob joined around this time as well.

With these people in the staff team we set forth and really went big.
We upgraded to a VPS and later even a dedicated machine. This was still not powerful enough for a permanent lag-free experience, but we got pretty close.

Later in the year we switched from the DW20 to Enigmatica 2. This switch was done by popular vote, and a lot of people seemed to enjoy this change. At one point we had 16 players online at once, which was mental. Enigmatica has been online for about three months, just as long as DW20 has been. (I know, it feels shorter doesn’t it…)

Right now, the server is becoming more and more inactive. It saddens me to see this, but I haven’t been able to be active either. Within the staff team we’ve been talking about a new modpack.
That’s why we would like you to give us suggestions!
You can do so here:

Welcome to your What modpack

What modpack would you recommend for the Boothill to transition to?

Please share a link to this modpack's page.

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 🙂

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.


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.

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
