It's been a very quiet time here at Modern Kingdom of late, as the world of 1.7.10 modded Minecraft finally wore out its welcome and we all found other things to do with our time.
There are signs of life now in the mod wilderness, and I can promise you some goodness to come. 1.9.4 packs are out there, and even 1.10.x packs are being whispered about in the dark corners of the internet.
Before we go venturing off into these brave new worlds though, it's time for us to move to a new server. This should not impact anyone in any way outside of some minor periods of downtime, but I should be able to do most of this without any of you being any the wiser.
I have done a lot of work already. The new server has been up and running for a few weeks already, and many of the services are configured and waiting. I even managed to transfer most of our data over so that the next transfer will take that much less time.
But... alas, there's always the chance that I'll pick a window that someone wants to play in, or that something will go wrong (as it surely will after a post like this!) so here is my fair warning: there may be outages in the next 48 hours as I begin migrating things over to our new server.
In addition to this warning, I shall also offer hope: I am planning to launch a few new instances shortly after the server switch, and I'm interested in hearing if anyone has any packs that they are currently interested in trying out.
While it is actually still 1.7.10, I am currently interested in Space Astronomy, and I'm hoping we can build a special event out of it very soon.
I'm also interested in trying the Block19 modpack currently found on the ATLauncher.
