Been playing FTB with Cafall on my guild's server. It's so much fun. Oh Forestry, how I have missed your sweet embrace.

Even in Tekkit I've never really played much with Forestry so I have no idea what to do or what the benefits are.

I know you can make a (mostly?) self sustaining tree farm as well as biofuel for them as well as for BC?
And bees are part of this correct?

You can make self-sustaining farms of ANY type (except potatoes, carrots, and cocoa beans I think - there've been updates since I last played with Forestry but I don't think they've worked in those crops just yet). The main benefit of Forestry is low-maintenance gardening. It's also just a lot of fun, imo.

Beekeeping is fun! I am just starting to experiment with it (it was broken when I was playing Tekkit a while ago), but it adds a new element to the game that's pretty fun and semi-neurotic in a "gotta catch'em all" kind of way.

The wiki's been updated and has some really good info. If you want to try out FTB I could give you the info to my guild's server, just shoot me a PM.

I think I'm finally starting to understand part of FTB.

It's remarkably easy to get tons of minerals using mining turtles and a combination of engines, transport pipes, macerators, and electric furnaces.

Coke furnaces help too.


Edit: In terms of tutorials, watching the mindcrack peeps play FTB has helped dramatically as they're figuring stuff out too.


Edit: Anyone else having issues with FTB crashing every so often?

Is FTB multiplayer? Is it as good as tekkit?

Yes, and pretty much, it has a good chunk of the proletariats Tekkit does and iirc, it runs a more recent version of MC as well

Can someone point me to how I download/install FTB? A good friend of mine who took me in on my first raiding server has convinced me to try it, but I can't figure out how.

I'm probably missing something really really obvious.

EDIT: Nevermind. I'm dumb. It was obvious as fawk.

It has an installer so you don't have to worry about installing the individual proletariats

What version of minecraft is it running? I think I might try to run a server for a bit with it.
