Client Updates & Alpha Testing

Based on player feedback, and the fact that no new bugs have been reported for over 60 days, the current 1.6.4 version of the modpack will no longer be receiving updates. Instead we'll be focussing on getting the 1.7.10 update ready for release.

I'm also pleased to say that live Alpha testing of the 1.7.10 update will start in just a few days! As I've said before initial testing will be restricted to myself, DigginChickin & Tatankore, with other staff members being invited to join us once we are happy that things are relatively stable.

In the near future I will also be posting the list of what items can be stored in Vault World to be carried over in the update. If you want to start storing things already you can but please be aware that storing items which cannot be carried over could potentially result in the entire chest contents being lost, so be sure to check it once the list is released! 

More news regarding the update coming soon!

Donations Closing Tomorrow!

Donations will be closing tomorrow afternoon for around 4-6 weeks while we make some changes in preparation for the DiggyVerse 2.0 update, including some back end changes and a new Group Pay link.

If you donated recently don't worry, players who have donated since 1st December will receive any additional benefits / perks added to the donation based ranks once they become available again. The donations over the last couple of months have allowed us to cover the next 6 months hosting fees so consider it an extra thank you!

Thanks again to everyone who has donated to date!

DV2 Page

As some players have already noticed I added a DV2 page to the site about a week ago as a place-holder. If you hadn't already guessed the page will contain information on the upcoming DiggyVerse 2.0 update and will be gradually updated as things progress.

For now it just has a list of what we are working on now, but you can expect much more information to be added over the coming weeks as we start to finalize various things and start full on testing. Be sure to check back regularly to see how things are progressing, get the latest info and get some sneak peeks of things to come!

Hey! - DiggyVerse 2.0 Progress

Apologies for the lack of posts, I've been hard at work adding content to my mods and doing some initial server side testing for DiggyVerse 2.0!

So far I've added over 100 new items to my mods and I still have quite a few to finish tweaking, I'm hoping to have them finished very soon though. In fact, if all goes to plan we'll start full on Alpha testing by the end of the month.

Being so busy with testing and producing hundreds of new textures means that myself and Tatankore haven't had much of a chance to get on the server over the last week. We have been checking in at least once or twice a day though, mainly to make sure support tickets are picked up! We'll be on a lot more often once the rest of the textures are done. We still have about 250 to do and some are quite complex but we reckon we can get them done within the next two weeks.

Hope to see you in game soon!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Wishing you a happy new year, here's hoping 2016 brings lots of awesome surprises your way!

Just a reminder, the Christmas sale ends at midnight tonight, so this is your last chance to get 20% off the Donator and VIP ranks or double items in the tip package. 

For today only I've also added an extra little gift to both rank packages, see the Donate page for more info. What's more, anyone who already donated over the sale period will also receive the extra gift today!

Also, in preparation for the launch of DiggyVerse 2.0 donations will close around the 20th January, probably for around 4-6 weeks, whilst we make some changes which includes an updated Group Pay link.

Happy New Year!
