Emergency Update: B-Team 1.0.5 Is Now Recommended

Attack of the B-Team 1.0.5 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 an emergency update to fix a crash issue that cropped up in the version of Chisel shipped with Attack of the B-Team 1.0.4.

The build includes the following changes:

  • Updated Chisel to version 1.5.0.technic.1. This version fixes a crash issue when breaking glowstone in 1.5.0.technic.

Server owners can obtain the new server file from the following link: http://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/servers/bteam/BTeam_Server_v1.0.5.zip

Server owners looking to update from 1.0.4 can simply update the config files and zChisel.

Attack of the B-Team 1.0.4 Is Now Recommended

Attack of the B-Team 1.0.4 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 1.0.2, with a number of bug fixes, and the inclusion of Inventory Tweaks and Not Enough Keys.

The build includes the following changes:

  • Updated Chisel to version 1.5.0.technic. This version should properly override vanilla blocks in a way that drastically reduces incompatibilities.
  • Added Chisel Override, which is a coremod which makes the fix for Chisel work.
  • Minions has been updated to version 1.7.9b, which should eliminate the remaining crash bug.
  • Open Blocks has been updated to version 1.2.4.151, and Open Mods Lib has been updated to 0.1.112.
  • Fossils & Archaeology: Re-Ported has been updated to version 1.0.5. Bio-Fossil models will now correctly spawn as babies, and require bones to be used on them in order to grow them. T-Rexes are no longer invisible.
  • Galacticraft has been updated to version 2.0.8.940. This should fix several issues with galacticraft wiring and oxygen networks breaking when unloaded.
  • Inventory Tweaks version 1.56b77 has been added.
  • Not Enough Keys version 0.0.4 has been added.
  • Minions are now smarter about which blocks are trees and bulk stone. Thanks, Brigadon!

Server owners can obtain the new server file from the following link: http://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/servers/bteam/BTeam_Server_v1.0.4.zip

Server owners looking to update from 1.0.2 can simply update the config files, zChisel, Minions, Open Blocks, Open Mods Lib, Fossils & Archaeology: Re-Ported, Galacticraft, Galacticraft Planets, and MicdoodleCore. Finally, add Chisel Override and Inventory Tweaks to the server.

Attack of the B-Team 1.0.2 Now Available & Recommended!

We have just released Attack of the B-Team 1.0.2 to the general public, bringing our 7-day charity event to a close.  And what an event it was!  We thought that the giving would peter out on Sunday morning, but we had generous donors giving to Child's Play right up until the end!  In the end, you raised $22,541 for Child's Play! As a point of comparison, Desert Bus for Hope raised $22,805 their first year, so you're in great company!  We just can't thank you enough for your generosity and kindness- we've always known that the Minecraft community is an impressively generous group of players, and you've proved it beyond any doubt.

Just one minor bit of housekeeping as we close out here- 1.0.2 is an improvement on the 1.0.1 version which was live during Early Access, and donors will be prompted to update to it the next time they run Attack of the B-Team.  

The build includes the following changes:

  • The Chisel recipe no longer conflicts with the knife recipe from Mr. Crayfish's Furniture Mod.
  • We've attempted to address a Concurrent Modification Exception in Tropicraft.
  • Keybinds have been rearranged to ensure that H launches the hats menu correctly. Users who use custom keybinds will unfortunately have to rebind their keys.
  • It is now once again possible to craft Small Iron Body items in Flan's Titan Pack.
  • Minecraft Minions has been updated to version 1.7.9. This should address several crash issues with minions dying or unloading. For all 1.7.9 bugfixes, dismiss and then re-summon your minions!
  • Carpenter's Blocks has been updated to version 2.0.2. This should address several crash issues.
  • Artifice has been updated to version 1.1.3.243. This should address a few crash issues and an issue in which upgrades provided the wrong bonus.
  • Necromancy has been updated to version 1.4c.8. This should address an issue in which the creative mode texture was missing.
  • Fossils & Archaeology: Re-Ported has been updated to version 1.0.3. This should address an issue in which shift-clicking in F&A machines crashed the client, and another in which certain AI activities crashed the server.

Server owners can obtain the new server file from the following link: http://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/servers/bteam/BTeam_Server_v1.0.2.zip

Server owners who have an existing 1.0.1 server only need to replace the config folder, as well as the mods: Minions, Carpenter's Blocks, Fossils & Archaeology: Re-Ported, Necromancy, Artifice, and Chisel (Chisel has been renamed to zChisel, so be sure to replace it properly).

Attack of the B-Team: After-Action Report

Good evening, everyone!  Tonight we are happy to report that today's 5 hour livestream was a stunning success!  During the all-too-brief hangout with generikb, BDoubleO100, ChimneySwift, Keralis, and Glis, our total donations increased by 50%!

We're still coasting on the B-Team bump we just received, which means that total donations to Child's Play is only a few hundred dollars away from the incredible figure of $15,000!  So, if you haven't donated yet but were inspired by today's livestream, or if you've donated already but are feeling extra charitable, head over to http://www.technicpack.net/attack-of-the-bteam and bring a little joy to some sick children!  Let's show everyone just how generous the Minecraft community can be!

We'd also like to again remind you that if you've donated but do not see Attack of the B-Team in your Technic Launcher, head over to http://donate.technicpack.net/ to check your donor status and fill out a form if your donations aren't hooked up correctly to get that situation fixed and get yourself into the game!
