Eagleworld.net Minecraft Blog More Minecraft than ever before!


So yeah…

EDIT: I realize I was ambiguous in my post, but Tekkit Lite is an evolutionary progression from Tekkit Classic, so all of the stuff we got used to and our current map should work.  I can't guarantee 100%, but I can say about 95% certain that we can keep the map, and that maybe only a small portion of the items (if any) might not work.  Just give me time to work it all out though :-)

Hey, everyone!

So yeah...

If you are anything like me, you have been getting SNS Syndrome* over the new stuff in Minecraft that's come out since the build used in Tekkit.  Well, I hate to say it, but I was getting ridiculously impatient!  I've even been checking week-by-week for updates, but nothing that gets us new crap (just bug updates).

Then I come across something called "Voltz" that they're putting out.  It's basically the "next version" of Tekkit that has a whole different set of plugins that work off of a common electricity standard.  However, that would mean we have to start from scratch completely with a new map and everything...not an enticing option.

Just as I was abandoning hope and was ready to back to vanilla + Bukkit, I found out about Tekkit Lite today.  I initially thought it was a pared down version with less plugins, etc, but it turns out it is the next version of Tekkit!  The "lite" part is that it does not rely on Bukkit in order to work.  Good news is I think it will work with all the stuff we are used to.

So, it will take me some effort to port this over, but I believe we can have all of the Tekkit plugins we were used to, combined with our Bukkit plugins (such as grief protection, etc.), AND have the latest Minecraft build!  So, I didn't forget you people...I want to get on the latest-and-greatest, and will get it out as soon as I can.  In the meantime, the "Tekkit Classic" server is working, and should be available for your use.  If you're having problems, let me know and I'll help you out!  Have fun!

  1. An update! Holy shit!

  2. I have been wondering if tekkit would be adding all the SNS soon.

    I’m not apposed to a redo if it becomes necessary, but nobody has even seen most of my stuff :P

  3. I think a fresh start with all the new rules already in place and everything nicely balanced, would be a good thing :)

  4. I would be sad to lose my house though, and I didn’t finish my tunnel either, i’m looking forward to tekkit lite :D

  5. Im down with a redo. Would work better with new new rules.

    • I’d be interested to see what “new new” rules you suggest. I’m opening up my next post for everyone to give suggestions. Post your stuff in detail there or let me know on Skype or something.

  6. Well, don’t jump to conclusions…I think we can keep all of our stuff after all. Tekkit Lite uses all of the same plugins that Tekkit Classic uses, except they are newer versions of each plugin. There are a couple of extra plugins as well, but that won’t affect what we have. All our stuff should be okay…it’ll just take a while.

  7. holy crap just when i was beginning to lose hope thank god your still alive.

    anyway this tekkit lite sounds good but either way i too would not be opposed to a complete restart either.

    • I’m always around. I’ve just been so busy with personal and work crap and honestly, SNS has kinda taken over and made Minecraft on Eagleworld boring. I need to figure stuff out. Check the latest post for more info!
