Good day, denizens of ByB. Your fearless leader and resident duck-penetrater has been spending his time the last few days readying up a fancy new Minecraft FTB server for your grinding pleasure. Myself, Proxy, Chas and a few other have begun the perilous process of testing for bugs and other game-breaking and/or server crashing issues.
But now, we come to you in our hour of need. We just don't have enough energy to hunt down all the bugs. So, we will be asking you to join us, and do your best to find and destroy exploits. Look at it as a closed beta, in which all ByB members will receive access.
If you are interested in playing on the TPPI modpack, read on for instructions on how to access the pack, and how to join the server.
This is a 3rd party modpack put together by the users of http://www.reddit.com/r/feedthebeast who decided that the current launcher packs were not challenging enough. So they went ahead and made it much harder.
Therefor, to install it, you must do a few things.
Launch the Feed the Beast launcher and click the Pack Codes button.
Type in MegaSharkPunch in the resulting window and press add.
NOTE: Sometime it will already be in your third party packs tab by default. If you get an error saying the pack is already added, move on to step 3.
Click the 3rd Party Pack button, scroll down and find the pack named "Test Pack Please Ignore" and click launch.
The pack itself is in beta, so there is bound to be bugs. However, there is some bugs we can fix on our end. The current version we run is 1.0.6.
Do not update to a new version unless the server description says it's running it.

If you have any bugs to report, please do so by PMing them to me on the forums for now, until we've set up a better way. There is Grief Prevention installed, so you shouldn't have too hard of a time protecting yourself.
Just do not build anywhere near where Someguy is building spawn. If he finds you building too close, your base will be scheduled for demolition post-haste.
The server is not open to the public at the moment. Please refrain from advertising it to outside sources, as we do not wish to have to whitelist it.
We will not be selling items of any sort in the near future. However, there will be a system put in place to give current and future supporters of ByB special perks in-game. You will need to attach your forum profile and SteamID to you Minecraft account name on our forums to receive the perks though.
Pantho does indeed smell.
