Glixyl’s Revenge Mod Pack – Client and Server Release – Download

UPDATE:9/29 – please visit the download page for latest downloads of the client and server.

Glixyl’s Revenge for Minecraft is released!  For the last couple of weeks, I have been testing the BETA2 release with the help of a few other people.  There were reports of sound problems related to MAtmos, so I removed that after reading through some forums and finding others with the same issue.  However, the final list of mods is improved, expansive and more in the spirit of a mod pack called ‘Glixyl’s Revenge’.

THEME:  Tekkit-like Advanced building and high-technology mod pack, with fantasy elements and lots of danger.  Hostile creatures fill the sea, land and skies.  Don’t fret though, you can use advanced materials such as reinforced stone and glass to shield your houses, equipment and pets from harm.  There are also force fields, interdiction torches that keep away hostiles and many weapons such as halberds, cannons, explosive arrows, lasers and bombs to keep the bad guys at bay; including enemy players!

It’s not all about building and killing though, however fun that may be.. 🙂  There is also questing and exploration, with goals such as learning to grow rare crops.  There are bandit strongholds and more than a dozen custom dungeons above and below ground.  If you set out to fly, you can explore villages in the sky and tree forts containing treasures.  The dungeons, quests and other adventure features are also extensible so that server admins can add content and quests.

MODS: THX Helicopter mod, ComputerCraft 1.41, EnderStorage, ccSensors, compact solars, RedPower2, Wireless Redstone chickenbones edition with addons, BC additional pipes, advanced machines, Transformers v1.3 (BuildCraft power conversion), Forge API 3.3.152, mod_macros/keybind,immibis core, Not Enough Items with addons, Forestry, DungeonPack, Railcraft with addons, Battle Towers, Buildcraft, Mo’ Creatures v3.6.2, Millenaire, IronChests, Balkon’s Weapon Mod, nuclear control, modular force fields, EE2, Ropes+, ChickenCore, InvTweaks, Netherrocks, Optifine, Sphax64x texture pack modded for Revenge,BetterWorldGeneration3 (DEFAULT and Large Biomes only), Rei’s Minimap with configurable LoginMessage, CustomMobSpawner, HD texture addons for various mods.

DOWNLOAD: (visit the downloads page)

INSTALL:  It is assumed that you understand the basics of using a computer and backing up/restoring files.  I do not take responsibility if you delete your computer on accident.

  1. Start with an untouched copy of Minecraft 1.2.5/1.3.1/1.3.2/etc.  NOTE** If you have a modded Minecraft client, you can also just erase your .minecraft folder after backing it up; then use the Minecraft launcher to get a fresh copy of Minecraft.  The Minecraft game files are located in %appdata%/.minecraft
  2. Extract the contents of the file “Glixyl’s-Revenge-Standard-Client-final-MC1.2.5.zip”.  This is usually done by selecting the file and right-clicking to select ‘extract the contents to a directory..’, depending on the operating system and program for decompressing.
  3. Run the program called ‘Glixyl’s Revenge Installer’.  This is usually done by right-clicking the file and selecting (on Windows) ‘Open with->Java(TM) Platform SE Binary’. (or just double-click it)
  4. If you should only want to play this mod pack in single-player, you can copy DungeonModv6 into your /mods folder.  Find it by <clicking this link> and it will generate the structures that are normally only enabled server-side.  ** Note- this may cause conflicts with the server-side mod, so remove the client-side DungeonPackv6 when connecting to a Revenge server.
  5. OPTIONAL – It is best to use 2GB of RAM with Minecraft due to the amount of mods in Glixyl.  Please search Google or YouTube for how to add memory to Minecraft.
  6. **If you are using the Ultra client, you MUST use a SEUS adjusted texture pack (like the one included) or the lighting and colors will be broken.

SERVER INSTALL: IMPORTANT FOR SERVER ADMINS TO READ

  • Extract the contents of the file “Glixyl-REVENGE_server_MC1.2.5.zip”.  Launch the server with the included .bat script for your version of Java.  If you have problems installing, please search for how to setup/run a server for your operating system or environment on Google.
  • Because of the large number of mods in this pack, there may be a potential for a conflict or two.  I have tested in SMP for a couple of weeks, but bugs are probably hanging around that I don’t know about.
  • ANIMAL LIMIT IS SET TO 50: Good news, Ostriches shouldn’t be able to lag out a server with this set in the configuration file– However, ostriches are not possible to stop from spawning, even though I have the server config set to frequency of 1 (0 doesn’t work either and 1 seems to work best).  I have read the decompiled source code and it would have to be hacked in to fix; which might have worse problems than potential lag.  Dr. Zhark’s Mo’ Creatures is just to cool to leave out of this pack.. sorry.
  • (ignore if you are running Update 1 of the server as this problem is fixed) The DungeonPack v6 mod is known to cause occasional crashes (while in use) and is a known bug.  For that reason, I have left it out of the /mods folder in the server.  If you want to use it (it is awesome), make sure you are around to restart the server if it gets hung.  DungeonPack generates structures on the world as you explore new chunks, but once they are generated the mod doesn’t have to be running for the structures to exist/contain monsters.

  1. I usually do not create a ton of remarks, however
    i did a few searching and wound up here Glixyls Revenge Mod Pack – Client
    and Server Release – Download | Glixyl’s Mechanism. And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it just me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks appear like they are
    left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other online social sites,
    I’d like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your site.
    You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love
    to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please blast me an email if interested. Regards!
