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.
You can view the entries by clicking on the participant usernames below:
The build event is drawing to a close and we have had a few requests to move the end date a few weeks back to allow more people to sign up. You can find more information on the contest and the sign up form here.
We've decided to add another two weeks which means the event will end on September 16, 2017 3pm UTC (click here for your timezone). Please sign up if you haven't so far, don't worry if you aren't finished yet.
We would also like to announce the next server opening which will be All the Mods 3. This pack is great for those of you who don't enjoy the hard mode experience of Age of Engineering and would like to try out all the new things in Minecraft 1.12.
We are also in the process of evaluating future packs that will follow the Age of Engineering server, but don't have a timeline for that yet. For now, Age of Engineering is still active and you can still join and catch up to the rest. Stone Age will stay up until further notice and phit may push a final update for the pack soon.
Thank you everyone for your continued support, and as a reminder, you can now support us on Patreon!
Due to lack of activity, we have closed the current FTB Beyond server. As always you can download the map here.
We plan on launching a fresh Beyond server in the near future for those of you that prefer a more relaxed pack than Age of Engineering. Stay tuned for a release date.
Additionally, our application requirements have been modified. If you are referring a friend to the server, make sure to have them review the updated information before applying.
With the launch of our latest server, we're also going to be holding a Build Contest! For this contest, all you have to do is build your base. There are no judging categories, and the winner will be chosen by the community. You can compete in a group of any size, and everyone in the group will receive a prize.
The winner(s) of this contest will earn a Build Contest trophy on the forums, as well as earning a Build Contest trail on the server. The trails will be active on the new server (Age of Engineering) and on whatever the next server is. After that time, you will lose the trail and have to re-earn it again.
As a reminder, this is our Build Contest Trophy:
