    Sketching a somewhat ambitious project. I hope I'm able to start it and go through all the way to the end.

    From my calculations, for the base alone, I'll need a minimum of 1620 iron blocks... :laugh: I hope the iron golem farm is up and running
    The rest... bring on the red and white wool! :rockout:


    I'll have to read on feed the beast. It sounds interesting! :D

    I have a sheep farm and some saved up wool in the public storage tower in Cape Coon if you're looking for wool. Might not be everything you need but it should be a good start.

    Could I also get whitelisted on FTB? I just want to try it out.

    Thanks Aquinus! Do you mind if I breed a few more? From the looks of it I'll need a f:D lot of wool lol and I really want to avoid using the public storage. Only if I really need to.:)

    I assume you're going to need iron blocks. Do you have any idea how many? I could put Anderson back to work collecting in the iron golem collector.

    That's fine. Just don't over fill it. If you really need more I would be open to making a larger sheep farm that's more like the cow farm but use what you need. It can always be replenished.

    I'm going to need about 1600 blocks of iron or nearly 15k ingots. :laugh: I already started collecting some last night.

    Got it, thanks.

    Ooo, thanks for the info, where are they?

    Yep, pasture is a good place to get colored wool, I think I have most colors of sheep.

    And with at least the red and white, there are enough sheep in the pens that you can just run around with shears and constantly collect wool, and never run out of sheep to shear.

    It's underway!

    [​IMG]


    Revised the need for resources, only needed 836 blocks of iron. :banghead: Dumb me failed to realize I didn't need to fill the base with the same blocks as the exterior. So instead I filled with cobble stone.


    Tomorrow sheep... beware :D

    Ford, there are Iron Golems in your mellon/pumpkin piston farms trampling your crops.

    It turns out McMyAdmin has just added support for FTB, so I'll be re-doing the FTB server in the next few weeks. However, this shouldn't affect the map, I should be able to load the current map into the McMyAdmin sever.

    That's cool about McMyAdmin. But, at this point a reset wouldn't bother me too much. I don't know what just happened but I was playing with the portal guns I found, died and there was none of my stuff there. Lost a TON of stuff i was carrying on me.

    That is one of the problems with FTB. Certain things, like portals, keep the chunks loaded in memory. So if you die and the chunk stays loaded, your items will disappear way before you can get back to them. In normal minecraft, if the chunk is unloaded from memory, the items will stay there forever until the chunk is loaded again, then the countdown until they disappear starts again.

    Thanks for the heads up! For now I won't need any more iron blocks. But if everything goes alright this project will have sort of two stages, and I may use more iron then.

    *snip snip* "here sheepy sheepy"... :D

    Hadn't thought about that, but i guess it makes sense if you can see the world on the other side of the portal. It wasn't as terrible a loss as it first felt. Only things I can't re-make are the portal guns themselves, and I wasn't really using the portals very much.

    I have set up a liquid tesseract, public channel 10, pumping lava from the nether. Anybody that joins and want's to access it will just have to create their own liquid tesseract and set it to recieve only on the same channel.

    Still waiting on getting white-listed on FTB. I think 36 hours is enough time to warrant asking again.

    There has been some timing issues on FTB the last couple times i've been on. I'm not sure if it's lag, but those symptoms are there. It seems like everything is running slower than normal. It's usually at 20 ticks/s and it seems to be closer to 5. Smelting takes longer, mobs react verry slowly, and blocks don't always break the first time. I have a couple chunk loaders and some portals still hanging around but no timers, quarry, or sorting system yet, which usually causes issues because of the number of item entities flying around.

    Thinking about it, there are probably still portals open in all the different mystcraft ages I went to. If they keep chunks loaded that could be contributing to the issue. I didn't know you could close the portals until watching a mods spotlight for them today.

    I restarted the FTB server, we'll see if that helps. I forgot that McMyAdmin automatically restarts the server for me, but since FTB isn't using McMyAdmin yet it doesn't get automatically restarted daily. I just don't think FTB can handle running for days on end, it just wasn't set up to do that.
