Tekkit Lite (Technic Pack) Server Version: 0.5.7
Minecraft Server Version: 1.4.7
2013-03-08: Our Minecraft Server is back up and running from our home server... We are still sorting out permissions, so let us know if there is any access that you're missing.
About the Technic Launcher:
The Technic Launcher (TL) functions completely independent from your existing Minecraft installation. TL provides pre-made Technic packs for use with for single-player and multi-player. Once you have downloaded the launcher all you need to do is pick the pack you want and play. Our Minecraft server is using the Tekkit pack.
This server is available to family, friends, friends of friends, and Minecraft fans around the Central Vermont area. Our server population is primarily made up of Montpelier area elementary and middle school kids (and parents). Do to our younger user-base it is not uncommon to find some worlds in various states of disarray, as users learn how to harness their power. But that's okay by us, Minecraft makes for a great social/learning environment where anything is possible and we encourage creativity...
The only worldwide server rules are:
We encourage the self-regulation of our Minecraft community through "gentle" reminders when inappropriate language or behavior occurs. Users who are "excessively" inappropriate or discourteous may be kicked from the server (requiring them to only log-in again). If a user is repeatedly being kicked from the server for inappropriate behavior (after fair warning) a temporary ban may be enforced.
The server has mechanisms in-place for protecting user creations, but they may require some basic understanding on how to use them. See the server plugins page for more info, or ask a moderator for assistance.
World rules may vary depending on the world you are in. That said, in order to create a positive experience, moderators will frequently grant new or younger users with permissions (or items) that help allow them to participate in a group.
To prevent server griefing new users do not have permission to build, but they may explore some of the worlds. In order to build on the server you need to identify yourself to a Moderator, in server chat, who then may ask you a few questions before granting build permissions. Users who have demonstrated that they are upstanding community members may have their permissions elevated, allowing them access to advanced server features or possibly moderator status.
