Here are the connection details, though as we are using a whitelisted server, you'll need to give me your MC name so I can add you.

I'm possibly interested, but don't know if my little laptop will be able to handle it, I have 4 gigs of RAM, running Windows 7. I've just started MC a couple months ago, and have never run mods.

Well, it takes about 20 minutes to load for me but I can get it to run... but the server says incompatible FML mods? I pm'd you with my login, did you activate me?

I had same issue. Turns out I ran the newest version instead of 1.8.2

In the lunsher, be sure to choose 1.8.2 in the drop down menu before hitting lunch...

Look at You taking charge. :P

You have been whitelisted, but the 1.8.2 is correct as the server launcher hasn't been updated yet
Whenever my brother gets around to removing some mods (as currently we are running all of them) I will post that list here so that you can disable them client side.. This will make it faster to load.

As my computer annoys me with a systemcheck almost every time before windows starts, I think it might be time to get a new one. Still might be able to reinstall it as a secondary pc for minor office work and stuff for my wife, but it became to old for me.

Anybody got some recommendation and/or knowledge about setting up a decent pc for less than 1000 Euro? Looking rather for something around 800. No monitor, keyboard or mouse needed, pc only.

800 euro? Trust me, that should get you more than a decent computer. "Elite" gaming computers go for about 1000 dollars. Although sadly I found it doesn't translate well into euros, it being much higher here due to shipping etc... Still, even then, you'll find a very good computer at that price range. Depending on what you want exactly, you likely don't even need to go that high. (Although you could consider it an investment, since a high-end pc would technically last longer if taken properly care off...)

Although like I said, it depends mostly on what you want- Would you want a pc able to do games, or just the occasional games. If it's the former, one of the things you'll want to look out for is that what you buy has a decent graphics card. If not, it's not the most important thing as Minecraft in particular is one of those games which relies far more on your RAM and CPU than your graphics card. If you'd want to play more intensive games though, look out for a Radeon or AMD graphic cards. (Radeon generally being considered the best, douchy business practices aside. Putting more specifics on which of those cards are better over others is harder though- You'd probably want to google that.)

That aside, you'll want to look for at least 8GB of regular ram and a decent CPU. Kinda hard to estimate what a good CPU might be, but a general guideline is that higher ghZ is better. Also I'm pretty sure no one actually sells 32 bit OS anymore making this kinda irrelevant, but do make sure you get 64 bit OS.

Those are my minimum recommendations, and I'm pretty sure you should find something akin to that for far below 800. Anything above it can be considered an upgrade. You might look into getting an SSD for example for storage, which is much faster than HDD, but also far more expensive.

As for where to best buy it... I'm a bit more hesitant to give advice on that, mostly since I don't know the country you're from and while I would recommend ordering online shipping fees can usually be killer so you'd want something not too remote. Going to a big electronic chain is usually the easy and fast solution- Though from experience, you'll usually pay more for less doing that.

Indeed...

But to be fair, I was making said funny at my own cost...
basically I came into the room, saw the "portal" build my way to it with a cobblestone bridge, jumped in... and... well.... felt stupid....

So i thought it was funny and wanted to see other peoples reaction....

To those of you who want to join, if you attempt to login and the people currently on (M0rt, LAYF, Brother etc) are there to vouch for you, you're name will be whitelisted at that time, as opposed to needing to tell me what it is. Cheers.

How exactly? Do we have access to the whitelist commands? I mean we could relay the name, but I don't think we can do it ourselves..?

So, I was finally able to get on, but now my computer is having overheating issues again, so I don't dare run FTB anymore. There is a small base in a mountain in the plains near the starting town, feel free to raid the meager supplies there. Have fun!

New PC is coming soon...maybe, only maybe...it will be enough for your massive addon server. ^^

Do you have a creative area somewhere? I played so much survival, I just do not really like building without flying anymore, especially if I cannot use all blocks and have to farm them. :(

No creative I'm afraid. I could probably hook you up with basics to get yourself set up though. Or maybe you can become one of my first minions citizens for your malevolent dictator friendly neighborhood emperor and I could hook you up with lots of stuff if you build something for me mayhaps..?

Hey now my deals certainly aren't dickish! I mean I gave LAYF a virtually unlimited amount of paper and all he had to pay was a 10th of his soul!
