Our recent server problems (lag, crashes, etc.) have been caused by issues with our current map, which has been up for over 4 months now. The nature of SMP Minecraft and especially modded Minecraft means that there is always the possibility of errors, which sometimes can't be corrected except with a fresh start.
We understand a world reset may be frustrating to some users, but the staff at TechLand are looking at the fresh start in a positive way and we encourage our players to see it this way as well. We have had recent requests from both staff and players for a map reset, as the vast majority of players have reached an end game scenario with not much else to do.
We are going to upgrade to TechWorld 2 version 1.1.7, which is the latest available from FTB right now. We will keep the server in whitelist only mode for a day or two while we get things in order and make sure all our mods and plugins are functioning correctly. After this, we will allow players to join again.
Since this will be a fresh start for everyone, we will not be refunding any items. Active donators can contact me or Adrian in game once the server comes up and we will refund any donator items that you lost (anchors, Ender quarries, etc.). We will also give any active players some extra in-game money to help you reestablish your towns.
Thank you for your patience during this transition, and we hope to see you on the server again soon! Please feel free to contact me via Enjin message if you have any questions.
Due to recent ongoing issues with our service, we have decided to switch to a new host. The move is taking place now and should be finished in 4 hours or less. TechLand-MC will be down during this time.
We will post a new IP address once we have it so players can connect while DNS propagates.
Due to the massive power output of BigReactors, TechLand-MC is configured to use more expensive materials in the BigReactors crafting recipes. Check the TechLand-MC forum for a BigReactors config file that will allow your client to use the correct recipes.
