An update to the server files (named Tekkit_Server_v1.2.9g-2.zip) has been pushed, which fixes a crash at start due to bspkrsCore failing an update check
Version 1.2.9i disables version update checks for all the mods, which were causing some people to crash.
A mod was added (Lumy Skin Patch), which brings back your super nice Minecraft skins (and if you play with other people, theirs as well!).
We've disabled OCS analytics-collection for people who cannot reach the OCS website for whatever reason. We've also promoted a new server build, try it out!
LexManos's LegacyJavaFixer has been added to both the latest and recommended versions, so users of java 1.8 can play both!
