Tekkit 1.0.6 is now marked Latest in the launcher - it is possible to play it by clicking the Cogwheel under the Tekkit icon and configuring the modpack to always use the Latest build, or by manually selecting build 1.0.6. Most users should remain on 1.0.5 until 1.0.6 is promoted to the recommended build.
This release contains two Tekkit-built mod forks, Buildcraft and Additional Pipes. These two mods have a number of key fixes coming in 1.5.2, so we forked their code and merged in the fixes so you could enjoy them NOW. No other modpacks have these versions yet, because we just made them!
Among the fixes:
- Deadly Buildcraft Packet Spam has been eliminated.
- Pumps can once again be powered with redstone engines.
- Assorted texture freakouts have been fixed.
- Advanced Wooden Pipes no longer turn into other blocks when attached to a chest.
