Map Corrupted: FTBU

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
Due some form of the lovely information panels being used again, the FTBU map is currently fully corrupted and is currently down.

I'm looking to restore from a backup shortly.

Update: Vending Machines

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
CFUK Vending Machines will be disabled in the next update. Though many of you will be asking:

What are CFUK vending machines?

Unluckily, CFUK vending machines rarely worked due to bulky code. They dispensed items for a gold cost.

Will they return one day? Maybe, if the demand is there.

Feature: Badges

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
One of the upcoming features of CFUK 2.0 is.. badges!

"But we had already had badges!"

Indeed, we did. However even though the old badges feature was launched, it never took off. Some users -already- do have badges, but down to recent events the added administration was a bad decision in being able to keep up with. Sorry!

This new badge solution improves over the original, and works along the same lines as Minecrafts achievements feature, except, it's tailored to CFUK!

"But what will happen to my old badges?!

You'll get to keep them, don't worry. Although they may be converted at some point to the new system, however they will still retain their original value!

Will it go down the pan like the last one?

No! It won't, actually it's never been easier than before. Wherever you can get a badge of not is up to you! It's fully automated!

So how can I get them?

They'll "officially" be released once or after 1.7 is out, whether a preview release it out before 1.7's release is unknown. As badges are announced clues how to get them are released here: [clickable link]

Some badges will stay secret forever though.

Any other questions? Post them in the comments for them to be answered next time1

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
Within the coming days and weeks, CFUK will take the massive upgrade to it's profile systems.

- Compatibility across multi-platforms (website integration now a possibility)
- Minute-by-minute playtime updates.
- Improved performance

- CFUK Hall of Fame
- Random events
- Challenge mode

Annoucement: Fekkit

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
If the fekkit server is still deemed inactive by the time of the release of 1.7, the server will close.

The map will be available for download upon closure

Schedule: Annoucement

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
To the run up to (and beyond) of 1.7, several important changes will take place here at CFUK.

This is to refresh the community/server and re-establish requirements for the size of the community here.

Several small changes will take place, making one big one. Keep an eye out, and as always, feel free to leave your comments.

Emergency Map Reset: FTBU Server

Submitted By BRooNiE in Server
Due to continued downtime caused by Advanced Information Panels, and the time to it will consume to remove each and every one, the map has been reset.

It was a last resort option, but unfortunately this sometimes happens with mods.

Advanced Information Panels will continue to be banned for the foreseeable future.
