Hive Minecraft is live!
Hive Minecraft is live!
Modpack: All The Mods 6 = 1.8.17
You can join and claim your own piece of the world.
Please follow my previous post for instructions on how to prepare your Minecraft installation for Hive Minecraft.
It uses a very large Modpack, so it requires a decent machine, all details can be found in the preparation post.
You will spawn in Town Center, a safe common area where you can meet and chat with friends. From there you can wonder off in any direction and find a place to call home. You can also use the only teleport command
/rtp to teleport to a random place in the world.
Once you find a place you like, go into your inventory and in the top left you will find a map with a tooltip FTB Chunks. This is where you can claim and protect land. Everyone starts off with a few available claims and you will gain more claims the longer you spend on the server.
The world is survival without cheats or teleports.
Every player starts with a free waystone for their first base. Placing this on your base will allow you to teleport back and forth from your base and Town Center. You do need some experience points to use waystones. Make sure you claim whatever land you use your waystone on so no one else can destroy it. You can craft or find additional waystones throughout the world.
I recommend joining Blockhead Games Discord Server to join other players and utilize world voice chat.
The server requires whitelisting, so you will need to submit your Minecraft username and Hive username in #whitelist channel to be invited. This will limit the server to Hive users only.
There are a lot of All the Mods 6 guides here to help you get started. You can also find many let's plays and tutorials on YouTube. I recommend trying to sort by age and try to limit yourself to the newest videos to be sure you are getting the most up to date information.
There server is capped at 20 players concurrently, but seeing as this is a massive mod pack, I do not know the actual player cap, I have a very large server running this world, but modded Minecraft is extremely demanding and unoptimized.
You are free to create teams and communities, you can use FTB Teams to allow shared access to claims so you can build as a team. You can use /ftbteams to create groups. If you need to learn how to use them, you can find guides on YouTube and the web. Generally though you will need to do /ftbteams create to create a team, then invite players to your team.
I plan to hold events like building contests and trials. These will be announced prior to start and available to all members of the Hive Minecraft community. If you have ideas, leave them in the #ideas channel on Discord.
The current modpack will change in the future. It is likely there will always be a persistent survival world that is always available but another server will be launched in the future if this becomes popular to explore new packs as a community. These packs will rotate on a regular basis to try new packs. Some of these packs may be simply a new set of mods and some may be adventure and story packs. I have quite a few packs in mind that I would like to try in the future.
