This past week has been a blur for us, what with the Blightfall teaser, Blightfall release, and now the Blightfall post-launch patch! But, that hasn't stopped us from working on the very next pack to come out! We hope you're ready because it's going to be out in the next few weeks!
Blightfall 2.1.1 is out, and it fixes a ton of questing bugs, typos, and adds some really great improvements to the game! The Spice of Life diminishing returns formula has been made more forgiving, the Spice of Life food buffer has been reduced from 250 haunches to 200, you get hungry slower than before, and we've changed the food requisition quest to give you a new type of food that is immune to diminishing returns! We've also added a new POI to the map that you will receive even on existing maps! Lastly, we've added a pair of cheats you can activate if you're uninterested in either the food game or Thaumcraft research. You can find these cheats on the top floor of The Jaded, but you'll need Op (or need to know an Op) and you will have to break some glass to get to it.
This is probably going to be our last update for a few weeks unless something goes wrong. We really hope you enjoy this post-launch pack update and if you haven't tried Blightfall yet, we hope you'll give it a shot. It's absolutely our favorite pack that we've made. You can check out the changelog here.
Advertise With Us
One of our favorite things about running Technic is seeing how industrious our users are. Many run their own servers, youtube channels, websites, or other businesses, and they're even really successful! If you are a Technic user who runs your own business, and you'd like to advertise to our users, we've started a test program to allow you to advertise on our site directly. This is just a quick test, but if the program is successful, we'd like to keep it going. We're advertising through Project Wonderful, a site that allows you to easily put together a banner ad and bid on ad space on our website, and many others. So check out our page and decide if you're interested in reaching our users for your server or website.
Some Launcher Hotfixes
Shortly after the Blightfall release, we updated the launcher to v4.313. Here are the changes:
- The launcher will no longer fail to relaunch on Macs due to the PATH being unavailable.
- Fixed various crashes and issues with Twitch auth.
We also need to drive home the point that the Minecraft Twitch auth will not actually be fixed for you unless you uncheck "remember me" at the Technic login screen, and log in using your username and password once again.
Well, that's all that we're up to this week! Keep an eye out for upcoming news about Tekkit coming out very, very soon! Drop by and see us on IRC, the forums, or Reddit. Let us know if you're playing Blightfall!
