[FLAVOR] 2014-10 -- Back to the Futu... er, Past

Post by Ciabatta on Thu Oct 02, 2014 1:49 am

Hello all!

I am pleased to announce the availability of the October Flavor for Little Brother!

After all that FTB excitement, some of the folks on the forum suggested a nice blast from the past... a setup that pairs Gulliver, LittleBlocks and CustomNPCs, and throws in the original Dravics server seed to boot (all we need now are custom NPCs of old Dravics staff)!  Talk about nostalgia trip (for some people)!  Very Happy


There's not really much to this arrangement -- functionally it's the same as Big Sister (including the use of Forge Essentials), only it pairs Little Blocks and Custom NPCs, and ramps up the difficulty level.  So aside from a nostalgia trip, consider this a "what-if" as far as what could be possible on Big Sister some day if we opted to enable Little Blocks or Custom NPCs.  Maybe the Past IS the Future!  Very Happy

Or something like that....



Here are the details of this month's flavor:

  • This is using the exact same version of Gulliver we use on Big Sister, and in fact all of the ranks and permissions should still be the same as well -- although that may be tweaked by the Little Brother staff.
  • LittleBlocks and CustomNPCs are the only two mods added.
  • The map is a fresh map generated with the original Dravics map seed, so former players from that server should recognize former landmarks.
  • Flammole and InvisibleDragon are the new permanent moderators -- AudreyAwesome and Lizeli9 have retired from the position.  Cordelia will also be our Monthly Moderator for quality and training purposes.
  • Difficulty is set to "Hard Mode", and firespread has been enabled, to ensure a little extra challenge. Wink


For Installation:

  • Download Custom NPCs for 1.6.2 here, and add to the same /mods folder where your Gulliver installation is.

  • Download Little Blocks for 1.6.2 per UncleMion's instructions here, and add to the same /mods folder where your Gulliver installation is. 

  • Launch Minecraft with your usual Gulliver profile.

  • Add littlebrother.mcserver.ws into your Multiplayer list, and enjoy!


Good luck and enjoy all the nostalgia tripping!
Just don't forget that the DRC exists on Big Sister, so don't go nuts rebuilding anything.  XD

Wow!  This flavor has definitely been collecting dust.  XD

But no more!
Because as of about two hours ago, Little Brother has been commandeered for user-testing of Gulliver v0.14.3!!  We will be in this test environment for at least a week, making sure everything works as before and that there will be no disruptions to our Big Sister server when we migrate it to Gulliver v0.14.3... this includes getting Forge Essentials updated to and tested for the 1.6.4 version as well.

This also gives time for people to installed the latest Gulliver on their clients, which is definitely important.

So go ahead, enjoy the updated mod, test it out on Little Brother, and if you find bugs please post them on Mion's thread.  Smile

Be advised, I'm in the process of doing tests on Forge Essentials 1.6.4 on the Little Brother server.  Expect some disruptions with commands, given the Permissions module is slightly different from our version.  Sad

With the announcement that Big Sister will update to Gulliver v0.14.3, I will soon be able to free up Little Brother so it can resume its Flavors. 

However, given that the last flavor was the old Gulliver with old LittleBlocks and old CustomNPCs, as well as the fact no one hardly played on it, the question now stands whether we...

A) Want to resume it as it was and change Flavors in Deccember.
B) Resume it as it was, but update all mods to their 1.6.4 versions.
C) Pick an entirely new Flavor instead.

Hoping to hear some feedback to help me decide -- since I'm lazy, my default choice will be (A) since that's the easiest for me.  ^^

I vote option 1 preferably, but 2 would be fine. I've just been using a lot of my internet recently and downloading the 1.6.4 mods will use some of it (but seriously, I'm just too lazy to download them).
