Based on the feedback we received from our recent age survey, the community is in overwhelming support of increasing our age requirement to 18+.
This means that we will no longer consider applicants that are 13-15 years old. Users that are 16+ will be considered, but will be under closer review than previously. We will be implementing this change in one month.
We are happy to announce our next server, running "Rise of the Pack". It's a small, expert pack loaded with quests and fun progression, sure to keep you busy for a while.
You can download the pack from the Twitch Launcher by searching for "Rise of the Pack" in the modpack section.
As always, you can see the server map at map.stonebound.net/rise-of-the-pack and possibly pick a spot where you would want to live.
We look forward to seeing you on the server!
You may have already seen on Discord, we are also planning on doing a full reset for FTB Revelation, meaning a new world, new seed and new chance to join the fun! The last day for the old map will be March 8th, following with the launch of a fresh map a day later around 8pm UTC.
Finally, we are doing a short survey regarding our age requirement policy, which you can find here.
As you may already know, FTB released their new big 1.12 modpack named Revelation yesterday, just in time for the holidays! It will be our next server, launching tomorrow. The pack is your general, big kitchen-sink, just as you would expect from FTB, with some older mods and many new ones for you to discover.
You can download the pack from the Twitch Launcher. Just search for Revelation in the modpack section.
We are happy to announce our next server: FTB Horizons III. It's our first FTB pack in quite some time, and their first real 1.12.2 pack to come out. Just like the previous Horizons packs, it tries to spotlight some of the newer and less well-known mods, while rounding the experience with new iterations of older, established ones like Thermal Expansion.
You can download the pack from the Twitch Launcher. Just search for Horizons in the Feed The Beast modpack section.
As always, you can see the server map at map.stonebound.net/horizons and possibly pick a spot where you would want to live.
We hope you'll enjoy playing Horizons III, and look forward to seeing you on the server Wednesday!
Also as a reminder, we are doing a holiday card exchange this year and the sign-ups are still open until the 10th of November. You can sign up via this form. For more information on the card exchange, please check the initial announcement post.
We are excited to announce the opening of the Stonebound Homecoming server next friday!
The pack itself aims to be played like vanilla and therefore contains very few game-changing mods. To add to the experience, a special type of terrain generation (map) will be used on the slightly smaller world.
As usual, you can download the pack from the Twitch Launcher. Just search for 'Homecoming' in the launcher.
With the holidays coming up, Stonebound has decided to run a holiday card exchange! If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form. Addresses will only be visible to the staff team and the user that will be sending you your card.
While handmade cards are perfectly acceptable, we ask that you consider the cost of postage before deciding to participate. There is an option for a domestic card exchange, where we will try to match you with someone from the same country or region, if you want to save money on postage.
You have until 11:59 PM UTC (click here for your timezone) on November 10th to enter. Then, we will contact you with the information of the person you will be sending a card to. Once you've sent your card out, please notify our staff team! All cards should be mailed out by December 8th to ensure they arrive before the end of the year.
If you cannot send a card after signing up for any reason, please let the staff team know as soon as possible. Failure to send a card without notifying staff before the deadline will result in a ban from all future Stonebound events.
Since the build contest had to end abruptly due to Age of Engineering closing, the staff has decided to reward every participant with an in-game trail. However, we are still holding a vote for the overall winner. The winner(s) will receive a forum trophy as well as the in-game trail. Not everyone was able to finish, so keep that in mind when looking at the images.
