How to use FTB Infinity Evolved:
The first command shown is the expert command. This sets Infinity Evolved apart by being able to select how intense you want your modded experience to be! This makes the game a LOT more challenging so beware! (NOTE: You can always swap back at any time to normal mode so not to worry!)
Next command you may want incase expert mode is too much of a tough nut to crack is the normal mode command. By default your server is in this mode, but you may want to test out experts and swap back. This is recommended for any casual modded players or newbies just looking for a fun playthrough!
The third command you may need, just in case questing starts up as not being enabled on the server, is the questing enable command. This command is really simple and easy to use in case anything went wrong with enabling questing on startup! The command itself gives you a quest book if questing was not enabled prior to its use.
The last command that’s handy to see what’s going on server side lag wise is being able to check your server’s TPS. TPS stands for Ticks Per Second and when running optimally, Minecraft servers run at a concurrent 20 TPS. We ran the command on a local world so there is a small change to the command for running it on your server. Instead of running /tps you’d want to run /forge tps instead.
Normal VS Expert – What’s the difference?
Normal mode is the typical modded experience, there’s no recipe changes or major gameplay changes to the pack and the resource harvesting shouldn’t take any longer than usual. However, things start to get a little complicated with Expert! Expert changes a lot about the game, massively increasing the resource needs of recipes and disabling some “cheat recipes” for example, lava generated power is disabled in Expert mode and you’ll need double compressed cobblestone to make a furnace.
As well as this, even when you do manage to delve in the technology realms, you’ll find machine processes take a massive amount of time to complete up to multiple hours to complete in game. Even wood is now harder to get! Wooden logs now only drop 2 planks per log in Expert mode, this makes this gamemode not for the faint-hearted!
Brief Mod highlights – What sort of mods can I expect to be using on my server?
FTB Infinity Evolved being such a dense pack as previously mentioned, the limits are truly your imagination. Whether you’re into making an industrial production line using IndustrialCraft 2’s macerators, electric furnaces and other machinery to double or even triple your ore yield, or you’re more interested in parkouring around your world using the portal gun mode, be careful not to get your portals mixed up though!
If you’re not a techie, don’t worry, there’s still plenty for you! Mods such as Thaumcraft 4 and Twilight Forest are also featured in this pack so that players can explore uncharted mystical realms, fight some tough enemies and gain knowledge and power in the mystical arts! This combined with Witchery as well with the pack and you’re looking at a powerful combination to smite foes, brew potions and gain deeper knowledge into Minecraft magic!
Introduction to questing!
Unlike some other packs in which progression is solely down to you, this pack offers you the chance to complete a fun and exciting adventure questing mode. This allows you to gain a deeper knowledge of different mods within the pack and earn some rewards along the way!
The mod itself, Hardcore Questing Mode, features up to 226 quests within Infinity Evolved, each tailored specifically by the mod team to be challenging, fun and exciting!
Of course, don’t be expecting to be able to grab the most overpowered loot possible straight away! The reward for this is a stone axe, so you’ve got a lot of quests to go through before you can truly be called a master of this pack!
In conclusion, Feed the Beast Infinity Evolved is an excellent pack created by the Feed the beast team for their 1.7.10 range of packs. It’s balanced with both magic and technology, exploration but also balanced with resource gathering, it’s ideal for the average minecrafter and has expert modes for all those modded enthusiasts among us who fancy a challenge!
If you’re looking for a pack with less grinding, then this pack may not be for you, this pack has a decent amount of grinding involved within it especially for some mods such as ExtraBees, IndustrialCraft2 Nuclear reactors and a heap of others! But if you’re down to dig (as it were), then this pack is your cup of tea!
Server stuck on start:
The most common issue with this pack is that it may become stuck loading up, not to worry if this happens, there’s an easy fix for that. Go to your server panel, click on the console in the left hand side and from there enter the command: “/fml confirm” after entering the command, please press enter and the server will load up as intended.
