So we haven't updated yet, right? If so I'm having a hell of a time logging in with Tekkit Launcher.

Kicking off a backup, then shutting down the world! I'll post again when the new world is online.

We're online now! Come play!

The truncated whitelist was temporary while I was testing that everything came back up OK.

Tekkit just doesn't want to update properly for me. Constantly stalls out on me. *sigh*

I logged out to change my texture pack and I can't get back in... only get black screen or white screen... even changed BACK to the default with no luck.

Hmm. I keep getting a "response code: 503" when trying to log in - but I see that there are 4 players on. Blacklisted again?

It's an MC.net issue. I get the same right now and the logs only show it as a lost connection:
2012-09-08 23:18:03 [INFO] /192.168.xxx.xxx:61158 lost connection

It's the same for all you others but I see your real IP instead of an internal one like mine.

I already took them. Drew you may notice some torches in the caves under your previous sand island. I overextended and ended up under your old place. I'm leaving the torches and walling off the passages leading to there. Leaving the resources though.

Looks like an endless cycle of reboots and crashes on their end. Good... bad.... good.... bad...

It must be lying right now. It says all is good but we can't log in.

Edit: They just edited it:

So, Tekkit is the cat's meow, truly.

BUT, I have a lingering itch in the back of my mind. While a Tekkit world seems like it has the potential to last a lot longer than previous worlds.... does it? It's partly a selfish question, because I'd like to build something big (again, yes), yet be able to finish it before this world gets ripped away because of whatever incompatible upgrade or whatever.

I feel like we'll invest a lot more energy (no pun intended ) into this world, but what happens when the various mods get updated to 1.3?

Just putting that out there. I'm curious.

So it goes.

Grey raises a fair point, though the move to this seed for 1.3 was primarily for emerald, yes? If so, I would think much of the reason to move may not be an issue. While the temples and such would be nice to have around, we all have way beyond the contents of those places at this point.

I build most of my stuff outside of MC, so for me it's a fun diversion.

For you titanic builders that's an important question.

I very much like Tekkit....but.....I'm getting some crappy framerate issues in regular play, and the nether is unusably laggy. I have a 2008 MBP... (I know, it's old...)

I'm getting lots of lag at times, too, but have yet to try out the Nether. My MBP is older than Bryson's.

It's not just you - the Nether is dangerously laggy/choppy on my 2011 MBP as well. I've nearly been killed by ghast fireballs and falling into lava several times because of that.

I've been getting lag even on my hackintosh.

Core i7, 6GB RAM, SSD, and 512MB VRAM (XFX Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT XXX Edition)

I still have to install Windows 7 on the other drive to test my graphics on Minecraft and Starcraft to see if a PC system runs more smoothly. RAM could use and upgrade too.

I thought it was just me too. There was an interval at which things just got slow if not totally stuck, and then it normal rate returned for some minutes, then stock, etc. On iMac i7 with 16GB RAM and SSD.

Weird. I'm on a 2+ year old hackintosh (Core i5, 4 GB RAM, 512 MB GeForce 9800, Mac OS X 10.6.8) and rarely have problems. At least, I certainly don't have any more performance issues than I've had with vanilla Minecraft.

What settings are you guys using? I use the "normal" viewing distance, graphics set to "fast", advanced OpenGL off, and "performance" set to VSync. I also tend to quit most other running apps and only have iTunes and Chrome (usually with a few tabs on wiki pages) in the background.

The only lagging I encounter tends to be due to network congestion, as far as I can tell. I have network and CPU monitors in the menu bar, and I'm never maxing out the CPU on my machine.

edit: Except for the nether, but I think that's a problem with using Minecraft 1.2.x where performance was worse that 1.3.x anyway, and I'm rarely in the nether anyway.

Oh, and speaking of the nether!

I built a platform around 0,0 so if you die in the nether and respawn there, hopefully you'll have a better chance of escape instead of getting caught in an infinite loop of falling into lava and dying again.

I am wondering if this will all get better once the mods update to 1.3.2. I remember how bad 1.2.5 was for me, and this really is just how that was.

Early 2011 MBP gets mighty laggy on a boat ride with just 2 people in the game.

I had to go save somebody who'd fallen in a hole tonight and the boat repeatedly surged as it caught up.

Yes, it was me who fell in hole.

It was a very valuable hole, so getting out was a bit tricky.
