Industrial Rage is one of the oldest tech mod packs to date. We began in April 2011 as a server pack with such booming activity that we crashed servers and had to be kicked from server hosts due to the overwhelming response to the server. The server was created within 1-2 hours of Industrialcraft 1 smp being released. It's been recognized by Alblaka himself as 'thee' IC server. We've had people like Alblaka, Spacetoad, RichardG, Player, many of the IC staff, Eloraam and more on the server in the span of it's lifetime.
We started out as a pay to play server due to the lack of server tools to assist with management. When mcpc came out, we opened up to the public and had seen up to 1000+ unique visitors. We are always trying to improve the experience and add cool and new toys. We always try to form our own packs and never have used any 'preset' mod pack.
Now the pack has evolved into a modpack that isn't exclusive to the server. Anyone may use the pack and create their own server. We do though still provide our own server in the server list if you wish to join us.
