Christmas Day Launch of Platform v2 and Launcher v3 KakerMix KakerMix / Posted 2 days ago

Hi. We're going to be launching the new Platform and Launcher out of beta on Christmas Day. For those of you that have been using the site, thank you, your testing and reports have been invaluable.

We've done everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible, but as is always true with massive changes like this there will be unforseen consequences. We'll let you know if anything changes.

Big Dig Has Been Removed From the Platform cannibalvox cannibalvox / Posted 1 year ago

Hello, this is your friendly reminder that Big Dig is transitioning to become an official Technic modpack.  Today, we moved along that transition by removing Big Dig from the searchable list of Platform modpacks.  Your new landing page for all things Big Dig can now be found at the following link:

For those of you who are still playing the platform version of Big Dig, I hope this will be the kick in the pants you need to transition over to the official version immediately.  All that you need to do to make that happen is copy your saves and servers.dat from your .technic\big-dig-pack folder to your .technic\bigdig folder.  A link to the Big Dig official server can be found on the official page linked above.

Platform Down Time And You: It's Your Fault (probably) KakerMix KakerMix / Posted 1 year ago


Platform is a massive smash hit success WAY beyond what we initially anticipated. This is why when the weekend rolls around it collapses under the weight of everyone and their mom getting a sweet piece of this Platform action. Thanks to everyone for exploring the potential of Minecraft and making the entire modding community a better place, even if there are literally millions of you that always seem to want to show your appreciation at the same time on Saturday. 

To that end we have some dramatic changes about how Platform, Solder and the Forums operate. We hope this up-down-wait-its-up-welp-down-again will be crushed soon. Thank you for bearing with us.

Big Dig Updated to 1.2.2 cannibalvox cannibalvox / Posted 1 year ago


A new minor version for Big Dig has been released and promoted to recommended- this latest version has the following changes:
 - Liquid Metals has been updated to version 0.1.18.
 - Applied Energistics has been updated to version 9.i.
 - With the help of fred4106, I've implemented a workaround that should cause Liquid Metals to interact properly with all supported metals.
The new server version can be downloaded here: 
This should be the final Big Dig update before we move over to 1.5.1.
