Dynamic XP seems too newbie friendly. It gives good players less XP for killing the usual player where as it  rewards shitty players with more XP when they do finally get a kill on a good player.
Nice way to "balance" different player skills but you're not supposed to, there's a difference for a reason.
That being said I do suppose shitty players end up killing shitty players so they also get shafted on XP.

Overall the unlock grind was already way too slow for my taste, slowing that down by making XP less isn't going to help.

I'd much rather see them introduce a player kill streak system, where you get more XP for killing a few in a row.
Players that are on a kill streak can give more XP if you kill them, make their name glow RED or something to put more emphasis on the fact it's a dangerous player who gives you more xp if you kill.

This way everybody wins, good players get even MORE xp for being good while still rewarding bad players with a reward for dealing with a good player. This way you don't screw up the already boring base battles where you mostly kill freshly spawned meat that now gives you even less XP then before.

An alternative way to balance good players XP flow is by rewarding them with more health after a killstreak. Nothing insane and not above base health until a high lvl kill streak has been met. For example killing 3 players in a row would give you +25hp, killing 6 gives you +50, killing 9 could give you basehealth +25hp.
While still retaining the HIGH xp value when you kill a streaky player. This way good players need to keep killing to get more xp out of it and the XP comes at a more gradual flow and if a good player is not being damaged he gets no benefit out of it until he reaches high streak value.

Simply launch through the FTB launcher, click YES when prompted to update. Allow all files to be updated and launch the game once, after that's done add in the following patch:

This is v8 of mindcrack which you can only get by opting in the FTB launcher. I've also updated a few other mods and fixed a crash issue with v8.
Since some mods I've updated are under a  different name and all round more hassle to try and keep that in check without making mistakes you can download my own complete version of mindcrack.

Just delete your old mindcrack folder and copy this one in.

Download HERE TICmcpack.100

I haven't done too much testing yet so let me know if something does break.

I left my own waypoints in it but if you want your own waypoints back copy back your own SAVE folder "MindCrack\minecraft\saves"

The Hive / Minecraft Server FTB, New World

We just started a new minecraft world 27/5/13 on the mod pack FTB ultimate. It's really easy to install and comes with a gazillion mods. If you haven't played any minecraft technical in a while it's much like TEKKIT but offers a lot more content and is updated more frequently.

We're all in the progress of setting up our basic base, so far we're all clustered together and the goal will be to share with one and another, specially for the high tier Gregtech equipment.
Course if you want to play solo somewhere you are free to do so.

If this all sounds like mambojambo to you and you own minecraft I highly recommend you try out this package as it will put a lot of new life into your minecraft.
Some of us have been doing this for a while so we are more then happy to help you through the overwhelming start.

I'll be the only admin on the server to make sure any creative spawning or cheating does not occur. Needless to say I won't be using it myself either :)

Get here:


Make sure to download this mod (launch FTB ultimate at least once)

and throw the zip (DO NOT UNZIP) in your C:\Users\NedStar\Downloads\Ultimate\minecraft\mods directory
