I am sorry to announce that our FTB server, run by Nosmeister and myself will be closing on Sunday July 6th, 2014. If you want to continue what work you have been doing, we will be making the map available for download shortly after that time. When we get that ready for you guys it will be in the post below this one. We don't want to leave you players who do enjoy FTB high and dry, so- if you still want to play on a nice server that is similar to Minecove you can message Nosmeister or I here on the forums and we can provide you with more information.
Despite what the title says - No. This is not my or anyone else's grocery list!
Instead, it is a somewhat lengthy list of changes, recent and future.
You might be asking yourself why I titled this announcement 'Grocery list'. Turns out, I lied. This IS my actual grocery list. Furthermore, it is SECRETLY CODED into this announcement! Now if you're going to ask me why I put my actual grocery list on an important site announcement, well.. That's a secret too.
What is it you ask? Great question!
The stalls marketplace is a location where you may either sell goods and become quite wealthy or buy goods for cheap! All of the shops here are owned and maintained by players.
If you'd like to visit, type /stalls!
Donor Perk of the Week
Every week, either on Saturday or Sunday, a new free gift will be available on the donor shop. Gifts can range from:
In game items
And much much more! Each perk will last for a week and will become unavailable once the next weeks gift is up!
Don't lie! You want to be a mod!
...Oh you don't?
Well anyhow, for those who DO want to be a moderator, here's how to drastically increase your chances on becoming one!
At random times on random days we will be conducting interviews on our teamspeak server (mc.teamspeak3.com). Should you be chosen for an interview, you will be brought...
As you may have noticed, FTB isn't doing so well at the moment. Why is that you ask? Well, due to interplanetary alignment and rouge solar flares... well, I'll just be honest with you. Our current server host stinks.
The good news though:
A new host is on the way even as you read this!
We'll be getting several virtual servers to play around with meaning more modpacks to choose from! (direwolf20 anyone?)
Your save data is still intact so no world resets
That said, I appreciate everyone's patience given our current downtime. Expect an update when our new host is up and ready! In the meantime, go check out our awesome community at minecove.org. Stay cool peeps.
Edit x2: The new host is all set up and ready to receive. During the transition period we'll be down to prevent data loss. Stay tuned for times and updates!
I hope you find navigating around the website a bit easier! Ultimately this is how it will look from here on out, but I may tweak some bits here and there. If you have any suggestions, please drop me a message on my Skype!
As some of you may have noticed, our map is quite full. There's barely any space left! Due to this, I've decided to create a new map on Monday, March 31st. With this new map, all other maps will be removed. Additionally, all /homes will be erased along with balances, inventories, and enderchests.
If you have a building you'd like to be transferred, the process for doing so is simple, submit a modreq that contains the coordinates of your building. (/modreq x y z). Remember that the coordinates can be found by hitting F3.
The rules for building transfers:
- One transfer per player
- Only buildings will be transferred. No towns/farms/underground structures. You can however, build a building OVER your town/farm.
- Buildings that could be recreated in less than an hour will not be transferred (dirt huts for example)
If for some reason your building transfer is an issue, you'll be spoken to and the issue will be resolved
Will my McMMO/rank/items be deleted?
No, your McMMO skills and ranks will not be deleted. Your items can be saved if you place them in a chest within your build that you are transferring. Anything in your inventory or enderchest however will be deleted.
What time will the reset occur?
Most likely, the server will be shut down Sunday evening, March 30th, and will be down for a few hours.
Can I choose where my building goes?
Yes, after the reset, find a place on the map where you'd like your building to be placed. Submit a modreq stating "I'd like my building here!". Note: Buildings will only be placed once - Choose carefully!
What if I don't submit my building request before the reset?
Unfortunately you'll lose your building if you do not submit a modreq...

Ranks have a few changes.. We have 2 new ranks. Tin and Copper. Tin can be earned automatically after 20 hours of gameplay. Copper can also be earned the same way, but with 200 hours of gameplay. Each rank has its own kit and extra permissions and allowances such as access to quarries and changes in quarry size allowance.
Diamond now gets /fly.
Uranium Rank now lasts 45 days, has allowance to...
While doing our routine backups, I seemed to have deleted our entire ban database on survival and PVP! (I did the exact same thing on this day last year, what are the odds of that!)
What does this mean for you? Well that depends on who you are!
If you are a regular player, a friend that may have been banned can now play once again!
If you are a banned player, you once again are allowed back onto the server! That being said, even if you only have the intention of getting rebanned as you are one of those frustrated fellows, feel free! Our newer moderators could use the practice!
If you are a moderator, well, sorry guys! Good luck with some of the returning troublemakers!
Apologies for the error folks!
