Attack of the B-Team 1.0.8 Is Now Recommended

Attack of the B-Team 1.0.8 is now marked Recommended in the launcher, and users will be asked to update the next time they attempt to launch B-Team. This is a minor version update over 1.0.7a, which fixes a number of crash issues introduced in that version, and also updates Open Blocks.

The build includes the following changes:

  • Dragon Mounts has been updated to version r55.fix- Dragon Mounts no longer crashes clients of users who saw a dragon in SMP without seeing one in SSP in the same Minecraft session.
  • Wind has been disabled in the WeatherMod config, as it was causing an incompatibility with the latest version of DubStep Gun.
  • Hats has been reconfigured to use Hat-Hunting Mode as the default- in Hat-Hunting mode, each user starts with no hats, and you obtain hats by killing hat-wearing mobs. Server owners and users who do not want this change should modify the config file to change it back.
  • Minions has had its mod file renamed to be entirely lower-case. This standard has been adopted to deal with an ongoing issue with forge in which mods load in different orders base on operating system case-sensitivity, frequently causing server and client to have different entity ID's due to the way that most mods determine those IDs.
  • Open Blocks Mod has been updated to version 1.2.5.
  • Open Mods Lib has been updated to version 0.2.

Server owners can obtain the new server file from the following link: http://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/servers/bteam/BTeam_Server_v1.0.8.zip

Technic Launcher Build #411 Now Stable

The Technic Launcher, build #411 has now been marked at stable. Users will automatically download the new version the next time they start the launcher.

Release notes since Build #395:

  • A new system of file validation has been implemented. Every file we download from the launcher can now be validated in some manner, which should ensure that the launcher can find and correct bad downloads. This should fix cases in which a download failed halfway through, permanently screwing up a launcher or modpack install.
  • Litemods will now be cleared alongside jar and zip mods during a version update or pack reset.
  • A new optional 'javaArguments' field has been added to our object model of the version.json file. This new field is a text string in which modpack authors can add java runtime arguments to add to their pack startup command. Please remember that the edited version.json file needs to be inside the root of modpack.jar.
  • We now correctly handle a rare case in which Mojang would mistakenly issue a null response to a refresh request on a legacy user.
  • It is no longer possible to open the modpack cogwheel menu until sufficient information has loaded for the modpack.
  • Switching to manual build select in the modpack cogwheel menu for packs in which the pack's solder server is mistakenly not sending a proper build list will no longer crash the launcher.
  • Users with an unusual tekkit classic installation directory will no longer crash when starting up tekkit classic.
  • An index out of range exception will no longer sometimes occur when adding a pack to the launcher right as a user navigates the modpack selector.
  • The image cache loading code will no longer occasionally crash the launcher on startup.
  • An invalid installed packs list will no longer sometimes crash the launcher on startup.
  • Made various code quality improvements (zeuslightning125).
