Today, June 8, 2018, marks four incredible years of UnknownTekkit's life. That's right, it's the fourth anniversary of UnknownTekkit!

I'd like to preface this with a little bit of server history. Back Late May / Early June of 2014, I decided to start a Tekkit Classic server with the name Realm of the Unknown, which some of you veteran players may remember. I didn't have much money and couldn't afford to rent a dedicated server or even a shared server, so instead I restored to an old PC that I had laying around. Within our first month, we received enough in donations to move us off of that slow old PC and onto a shared server hosted by our friends over at NodeCraft! There wasn't much special about the server at the time, and my knowledge and abilities in the world of Minecraft server administration and development were quite limited. Not even one year after we opened our doors we managed to climb past some of the competition and pull in over 20 players on the server at once. We were also blessed with the assistance of our first (now retired) developer, _Carlos. _Carlos brought us some interesting creations such as a Magic Conch command, Mythical Chests, a custom server core plugin, and more. While few of _Carlos' creations live on in the server, he still has made an incredible lasting impact on us. With the help of _Carlos, I began developing plugins of my own, many of which have come and gone, being replaced by bigger and better plugins. Fast forward to the middle of 2016, nearing the server's second anniversary. We reached a new record of 43 players by the end of May, and were destroying much of the competition. By the end of 2016 we destroyed that record with nearly 100 players on the server. We achieved something that very very few Tekkit Classic servers have; I'm incredibly thankful of all of our supporters that allowed us to accomplish this. I hope that we're able to bring the server back up to that level in the near future! I'm not going to bore you all with more of the server history, mainly because I can't remember many big events since then.

I want to thank each and every one of you who have supported us through donations, voting, and even just being a part of the community! Without all of you, this server wouldn't be standing!

To celebrate, all vote rewards are x4, and everything in the donation store is 75% off for the next 48 hours!

There are some other things changing with the server's anniversary as well!

  • Item sets have been added to the donation store! They are available for both UTCredits and real money. If you think we're missing something, let us know!
  • We've finally secured a new server located in Canada, so we can kiss the current French server goodbye! I plan on beginning the great migration at roughly 8PM US Eastern time on Sunday, June 10th. It shouldn't take more than an hour. (Assuming all goes as planned.)
  • Have someone on the server you really really like? Well now you can make it official! Check out the /Marry command in-game! (Note: This requires the consent of the other party.)

Don't be afraid to send us your suggestions! I'm always looking for ways to improve the server and community. If you've suggested something in the past and it's been shot down, don't give up! The worst that'd happen is I say no. Though if I like your suggestion, it might even get added to the server!

Thank you again to each and every one of you for being a part of and supporting this server! I look forward to what the future of UnknownTekkit will bring, and I hope that all of you choose to stick with us!

Extra thanks our wonderful staff team (and retired staff members) and to all 961 of the following users for their generous donations! Without you guys, we would've never left the old Pentium 4 based PC that we started off on! (In chronological order based on each user's first monetary donation.)

Reset Complete!

[Owner] thekdub A posted Apr 30, 18

The map reset has completed! You may now join the server!

Some changes made with the map reset:

  • Timer minimum decreased to 1.5 Seconds.
  • World size increased to 16,384 blocks in all directions from spawn (Except up and down, that's still 0-255).
  • Performance patches for RedPower and IndustrialCraft added, lag shouldn't be much of an issue anymore.
  • Powerflower limit rule has been removed.
  • Energy Collectors limited to 850/person.
  • Geothermal Generators limited to 64/person.
  • New map:
    • Oceans have returned!
    • New and improved spawn!
  • Staff application requirements have been reduced!
    • 75+ Hours required -> 50+ Hours required
    • 250+ Hours recommended -> 100+ Hours recommended

I'll edit this if I can remember any other changes that have been made.

Some other things I wanted to mention:

Staff applications are still open! We are looking to accept anywhere from 3 to 5 new staff members! If you meet the requirements and think you would be able to handle being staff, consider applying!

cheboy6 Hi, my game keep crashing in your server and i have no idea why. can a admin disable the water strainers i use to power ...

Wow its been a long time since I posted an announcement on here. Be sure to join the Discord server to stay up to date on everything! The join link can be found on the left side of the website homepage towards the bottom (must be signed in) and in-game by using /Discord!

"It's that time again!" What does this mean? It means we're ready for another map!

When are we resetting the map? The map will be reset between 10PM (US Eastern) on April 30th and 1AM (US Eastern) on May 1st. It shouldn't take long to do, I'll be sure to post an update once it's done.

What's getting wiped?

  • The map
  • Alchemy bags
  • Ender chests
  • Inventories
  • Balances
  • UTShop Stock
  • Probably anything else not listed as being kept.

What's being kept?

  • Claim blocks
  • Ranks
  • Playtime

What if I bought World Anchor access? You will still have world anchor access after the reset. You'll just have to make some world anchors before you can use them.

How about my rank's rewards? If you have a donator rank, you will get the money from it returned. (Claim Blocks are being kept, so you'll already have those.) If you have a playtime rank, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why is the map being reset? I'd suggest reading the top of this message. Anyways, it's because we've had the current map since the beginning of the year and it's getting boring. We need something fresh.

What else should we expect with the reset? While there isn't a large update coming per se, I do plan to implement some performance patches for RedPower, IndustrialCraft, and EquivalentExchange. If you find bugs with any of these three mods (or anything really) after the map reset, please report it immediately either on the forums or in the #bug-reports channel on this Discord server.

Will the map be available for download? No promises, but I will try to make it available for download. Once/if it is available, I will share the link on the website and Discord

Some additional information not announced on the website yet:

UTCrates has been released! Users are rewarded with one random crate with every vote! There are 5 different crates, each with 5 possible rewards. Rewards range all the way from some coal to the Legend rank.

JustCall has returned! JustCall was previously a staff member on the server and has returned to help us out with development! 

UTShop has been upgraded! UTShop now features instant selling! Currently instant selling is capped to $2,500 per day to help keep inflation from going crazy. (With just 20 people using up their instant sell caps, that adds $50,000 to the economy in a single day!). UTShop also has a full list of commands available with the command /UTShop Help

Staff applications are open! We are currently looking for new staff! We hope to accept around 2-3 new staff members!

The world is growing! We have increased the map border from 10,000 in all directions from 0,0 to 16,000 in all directions from 0,0! That's over 10 times as much room! With this, we're also bringing oceans back! It turns out the issue we were having with them before was due to some buggy code in the random teleport command. The command has since been fixed and works perfectly!

World Anchors are available! Donator ranks Legend, Immortal, and Custom (UTv6 Version) all have access to World Anchors now! In addition to this, you can subscribe for access to 2, 4, or 8 World Anchors in the donation store! With this, you can place the anchors, pick them up, move them around, etc... World Anchors load an area of 3x3 chunks (48x48 blocks) at all times!

Be sure to submit your suggestions for the server either on the forums or on the Discord server in the #Suggestions channel! We look forward to hearing from you!
