Sneak Peek - The End

As promised here's the first sneak peak of some of the new features in DiggyVerse 2.0!

First up some new additions to my Diggys Stuff mod which make  visits to The End
even more rewarding... and a little more dangerous... 

Purple End Stone has become Infused End Stone and now has even more uses as well as having rare Thaumcraft Aspects, you'll also notice two major new additions...

Decayed End Stone and Ender Weed!

Both of these new additions have strange new properties and contain Thaumcraft Aspects, with Ender Weed being a vital ingredient in the recipes of some awesome new functional items. It will only grow in the unique environment of The End though, where areas cannot be protected, so farming it will be a challenge!

Sneak Peek - It's Coming Soon!

With the launch of the DiggyVerse 2.0 update just weeks away I decided it was
time for a little sneak peek of what we've been working on... 

It might be tweaked before the launch but yes that's a fully customised loader and main menu.. 
as for in game content.. 
well I promise some sneak peeks of that too over the coming days and weeks!

If you haven't already started stashing your stuff in VaultWorld you'll want to start sooner rather than later, a preliminary launch date has now been set for 2nd April 2016!

Buy Bullion At The Bank!

As promised you can now buy bullion at the Bank (at spawn) to allow easy money storage in VaultWorld for the 1.7.10 update. Bullion can be bought using either Large Coin Stacks or your /money balance. 

This will remain available until the update, and after the update you will be given supplies to help turn it back into Coins!

The building to sell many non-transferable items etc will be built in a few days (we are currently compiling a list of what will be available).

Tekkit Classic Gallery

I had a couple of requests for the old Tekkit Classic gallery to be put up here as the old website is no longer viewable, so I've now permanently added it the Gallery page.

Spawn Changes Coming Soon!

In preparation for the 1.7.10 update some changes will soon be made at spawn, this will include;
  1. The ability to buy Bullion at spawn for easy money storage in Vault World.
  2. A new store which allows you to sell various items that you would otherwise loose, and which contains the basic information about what can be stored
I'll post details here when the changes are ready, which will most likely be in around a week. 

So, how's the Alpha testing going....

At the moment we are making great headway on getting the server ready for full Alpha/Beta testing, a test version of the server has been up for a while now with all the mods and plugins loaded although obviously testing each plugin and setting up the permissions etc is going to take some time! 

We've hit a few bumps, especially with the custom Forge-Bukkit build we are using (necessary to make sure we have compatibility with the latest Forge versions and updates) but things are definitely coming together and with some help from other mod developers we're getting closer to a final build everyday.

More news coming soon!

1.7.10 Vault List & Info!

As promised here is the list of what can transferred via the Vault when the server moves to DiggyVerse 2.0 (MC 1.7.10). 

Remember, only stuff stored in a Vault will move over, backpack and inventory contents will not!

So here's what you can safely store in the vault...

Anything from Vanilla Minecraft.

DiggysAlphabet, DiggysStuff & DiggysMobs: everything except coal infused stone & rail related blocks.

Anything from the following list of mods (in rough NEI order):

Growthcraft, Redstone Paste, Vending Blocks, Obsidian Boats, SecretRoomsMod, Enchanting Plus, Natura, Carpenters Blocks, Doggy Talents, The Spice Of Life, Backpacks (item only, NO contents etc), Balkons Weapon Mod, ChocoCraft,  Hamster Mod, Parachute Mod, & Dynamic Sword Skills.

Anything from BiblioCraft & BiblioWoods Natura Edition, but nothing from Bibliowoods Biomes O Plenty Edition.

Metallurgy: blocks, ingots,  & armour/tools/weapons only (NOT machines, chests, orbs etc).

Aquaculture: Fishing rods, Neptunium armour & tools, and loot boxes (22266:15 - 22266:18).

Tinkers Construct: Hearts/heart cannisters, Jewelled Apple,  Slime Island related blocks, Stone Torches & some blocks (Ids: 1468, 1471 to 1474, 1477, 1478, 1485, 3186 to 3188 & 3233 only, including sub items, NOT Tools or Weapons).

Extra things you need to know:

If a mod is not mentioned above then unfortunately this means that either the mod is being removed from the modpack or that it's code has changed so much that item/block transfer is not possible.

Unfortunately due to major changes enchantments will not carry over.

Got a trained DoggyTalents dog and/or bred Chocobos? Open a ticket and we'll give you doggy treats  so you can retrain a dog easily after the switch and Chocobo spawn eggs to store in your Vault!

Got an epic build in either the main world or Veteran World? Send us some screenshots by email (remembering to include your player name) and not only will we add some to the gallery (earning you in game money too!) but we'll get in touch about adding extra building blocks to your inventory after the switch! Can't send screenshots? That's ok, just open a ticket and we'll take a look ourselves and screenshot it for you!

For a limited time the Bank at spawn will be providing a Coin to Bullion trade, more on this in a few days!

Hopefully that covers it but you do have any other questions then please do drop me an email!
