[Custom Pack] BrassBlocks Steampunk Server!
It’s back. The unofficial Brass Goggles Server; Brass Blocks! But it’s better, bigger, and buildier than ever! Below, rules must be read to join, and you might also want to cast your eyes to How to join to find out.... well it’s quite self explanatory.
The server is running a custom Tekkit pack, based on the Direwolf20 FTB pack. For a quick and easy guide to installing there’s a section below. For some not-so-quick but much much more detailed advice I would recommend watching through Direwolf20’s Playthrough] in which he goes through a lot of very cool stuff.
As an aside note our pack adds a lot of stuff, but you don’t have to use any of it! Much of the stuff, like marble and red cobblestone are purely decorative and you can play regular Minecraft without a problem! Don’t be disheartened! the Brass Blocks pack mostly adds tiers of advancement beyond Diamond, and you need to play through basic Minecraft to get into the ladder to start the extra stuff.
These rules generally follow the major tenant; Be Splendid and don't be an arseand . If you follow this main rule you’ll be okay, but below are some specific rules (examples spoilered for neatness), including pack specific rules.
Don’t do things to antagonise other players:
Don’t steal from other players, needlessly kill them, build in their way, mess with their builds. This is pretty common sense, any behaviour that breaks this rule (generally dubbed “griefing”) will result in permanent bans. We try to have a nice community, and don’t want this mess going on.
- Listen to the Moderators:
There is a list of moderators at the bottom of the page (their Minecraft usernames). Listen when they tell you to do something. As long as you’re not breaking rule one there shouldn’t be a problem, but if you’re asked to move a build, log out (for a restart) or leave something/someone alone don’t argue or make a big deal out of it. If you believe a moderators request is unreasonable please simply comply and raise the matter with one of the admins via a BrassGoggles PM or email.
To prove you’ve read the rules, add something to the effect of “I read your secret message” to your application. Either that or slip is the word asparagus in an amusing way.
Claim an Ender storage frequency; then stick to it:
For those of you who don’t know about ender storage; there are ender chests and tanks (for liquids). They both have a 3 colour combination on top, and when you join you can request a code. This is the first two colours and is assigned to you so your storage will have the combination [colour 1][colour 2][any colour]. You can let anyone use this, and you can use any third colour with your first two, but without permission don’t use other combinations. That said ender storage is not secured: use tesseracts for secure transporting, using the “private” setting. Try not to request a frequency if you don’t know what it does, or if you’re not at the stage of using it yet! If you’re in a group with others, consider banding up to save frequencies for everyone else :)
- Minimise Mystcraft worlds:
Using the magic of Mystcraft you can write worlds. Try not to write many, and if you write a few you don’t need let us know. Occasionally as part of semi-regular housekeeping operations any mystcraft ages we have not been instructed to keep will be deleted, so drop us a note somewhere/somehow about that or you’ll lose it!
