A couple days ago I dropped a few hints in Skyblock chat about two new big things that will be added in the near future. Back then I might have mentioned one will be added to the Skyblock server, and that you’re going to love it. Still got a bit of work to do on that one though, so bear with me for a while longer. However, today’s a good time to give a bit of information on the other thing…

I know a lot of you have asked for something like this, and so I set to make it happen. After nearly 3 weeks of hard work a new server will be added to the MCSpaceCraft gaming hub.

It will run on Minecraft 1.5.2, but it’s not vanilla Minecraft. In a way it’s like Tekkit, or FeedTheBeast, but running a completely custom mod pack. Together with a couple other moderators we went and tested literally over 100 of the best plugins, and hand picked the best ones out there to make sure you’re going to get an awesome experience. It’s not yet ready for launch but it’s nearly there. Soon, very soon!

No matter your experience level, or your preference, I can virtually guarantee there will be something in there that you’ll love to do. For the die hard farmers we have flowers and trees cross breeding, lots and lots of bees to raise, crossbreed, analyze and what not. We have amazing machinery, we have computer networks and so much more waiting for you to discover once we launch.

While I’m not yet ready to spill out the full mod list, here’s a sneak peek into some that will be added for sure:

  1. Balkons Weapon Mod
  2. BuildCraft
  3. Equivalent Exchange 3
  4. EnderStorage
  5. Factorization
  6. Industrial Craft 2 (with over 10 extension mods)
  7. MineFactory Reloaded
  8. Mystcraft
  9. Thermal Expansion
  10. Treecapitator
  11. Wireless Redstone
  12. Applied Energistics
  13. Steve’s Carts
  14. Modular Power Suits
  15. Twilight Forest
  16. Forestry
  17. Gravitation Suite
  18. ExtraBiomes XL
  19. Jammy Furniture Mod
  20. Liquid XP
  21. Mo’ Creatures
  22. Forgotten Nature

Keep in mind this is just a short list, and there are many more that are already added waiting for you to discover.

So if you’re not familiar with these, start reading and get ready. You’re going to be in for a treat really soon!

There’s something I need you to do though, and it’s fairly important! This new server needs a name. Tekkit would be an understatement, and misleading since we’re not running a Tekkit pack. And here’s where you come in…

It’s a server made for you, so it’s only fair you get to name it.

What I need you to do is get those creative juices flowing, and come up with an awesome name to match the server. Not only will the name of the player that made the suggestion will be displayed on this site, on the front page in a blog post for everyone to see, but there will be an amazing prize at the end for that person to claim on the new server right as it opens.

Even if you can’t think of a name, go to the forum and vote on the names your fellow players proposed to increase the chances to see the name you’d like end on top. I reserve the right to decline the top voted name and pick the runner up if I feel it’s not appropriate – so get those dirty words outta yer mind right now 🙂

Before closing, I’d like once again to THANK YOU for your awesome support and donations that made this possible!
