Servers Questions

At the moment we only have public servers open for Colony, Mythic: Classic, Jurassic Evolution and Battlegrounds.

We also have more servers in the works, head to our new servers page to find out more.

Some of our modpacks do have server files, however updating them is not a top priority for us. If you want to set up your own server simply take the mods and configs from the modpack directory, removed the client side mods and download forge from the website.

If you need more help with setting up your own server head to our support center.

We have 3 server machines nicknamed Frank, Stephen and Marvin.

They each have: i7 8 Core 4790K, 32GB of RAM, 500GB SSD

If you have added mods to our packs please make sure that you have run the mod via one of the staff members before joining the servers. This is to prevent you from being banned by our Anti-Cheat.

Mods like: Optifine, minimap mods, surge and any shader mods are fine and classed as innocent mods. 

Mods like: Schematica, X-Ray or another cheat/hack mods are classed as aggressive mods. If seen to be using these, you will have a life ban from all our servers.

All our modpacks are hosted on our web server.

Technic recommends you use sites such is Dropbox, but they have a download cap and can offer slow download speeds. If you’re looking for a place to host your modpack files, we recommend these guys: https://hostpresto.com/

Our servers machines are hosted from OVH.  https://www.ovh.co.uk/

If you’re looking to rent your own Minecraft server for a smaller player base, like your mates, we recommend these guys: https://www.bisecthosting.com/

We have two servers that keep the Kinetic Network ticking.

They both have:

i7 8 Core 4790K, 32GB of RAM, 500GB SSD

Our servers are located in France and Canada.

We will never shutdown a server with out letting you know. Never listen to anyone talking about a server shut down, unless it is the Owners themselves.

There are two reasons why we would shutdown a server. Low player count and if the server isn’t make enough money for us to keep it open. Unfortunately servers don’t come for free.

We will never competently wipe a world file useless we really have to. Every 6 – 8 months we will wipe the world files of our servers, however when doing this we will always keep the last world available on the servers for people to continue playing on.

If the server you are playing on has a mining world, expect this to be wiped more frequently.   

If you paid for a rank or kits on Beyond for for example, you can’t then move it over to one of our other server like Mythic. This is kind of like buying a ticket for Vue Cinemas and then taking it to Odeon Cinema and expecting to see a movie. 

All server ranks are for that server only, unless we close the server you own the rank on. Then you can moved the rank onto one of our other servers. 

If you have lost items due to a mod being removed, sorry we will not refund your items. If you lose items due to a server bug, that is our fault, so we will refund the items. If you lose items due to bug with a mod, again sorry we will not refund the items as it was not our fault. Sometimes losing items comes with playing modded Minecraft. This is modded and nothing works perfectly all the time.

The “51” error occurs when your client fails to send an update to the server that you’ve logged out, resulting in you being “ghosted” on the server. When this happens you can’t be kicked from the server (even though attempts to do so will say they succeed) and every time you try to log in you’ll see the 51 error. The only way we know to fix this is to wait 10-15 minutes for the server to figure it out and stop listing you as being online. We’re are looking into a permanent fix for this

Sorry, no. We have no location to host these file for download.

This error can happen when you try and join the server with a mod that didn’t’ ship with the modpack. Not to panic, if you’re not using a cheat mod then you won’t be banned. Just removed the mod from the pack, and you will be able to join the server again. If you would like the mod added to our whitelist, send it here: https://kineticnetwork.net/anti-cheat-whitelist/

You could get this error for a few reasons. One could be that you’re internet is too weak to connect to one of our servers, and the other is you’re being booted from the server by our Anti-Cheat. Before contacting staff about this error, remove all mods that didn’t come with the pack and restart your router.

This is a bug with technic. All you need to do is close the game and logout and back into the technic launcher.

Modpack Questions

Adding more RAM when using the Technic launcher is simple.

Press on the white cog on the top blue bar call Launcher Options. This will then open a window.  Head to Java settings. You can then add more RAM via the drop down.

Also make sure you leave around 2GB of RAM for other processes on your computer.

If you dislike reading checkout this handy video here!

If you can’t add more than 1GB of RAM then you need to download a 64bit Java. 

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html

Follow that link and download the correct version for your computer. If you’re using windows use the version marked: Windows Offline (64-bit)

Checkout a handy dandy video here!

Sure you can! But if you come into any errors when doing this, we will not offer any support. Sorry, but we just don’t have to time.

Also please make sure that any mods you have added are removed before you join us public servers. This is to prevent Anti-Cheat systems from banning you.

Yep, we are always open to suggestions for are packs. However, just because you have suggested a mod doesn’t mean it will make it into the packs.

There could be a number of reasons why your mod doesn’t make it in. It doesn’t fit our visions of what the pack should be, the mod is buggy or the mod make doesn’t want his mods in any pack.

Give it a shot and suggest your mod here!

Sorry, we just don’t have to time to help you with issues with your own pack or any modpack that hasn’t been created by us. There are a huge amount of YouTube videos out there for setting up your own pack. You should get the hang of it after a bit of Google.

You can now download past versions of our packs over on Curse Forge https://minecraft.curseforge.com/members/SleepingTea/projects

If you want a server download doesn’t have a link to the server files on technic, then sorry we don’t support server files for that pack.

If you need help on any of our servers. Please head to our support centre here. If you still have any issues open a ticket here
