10th Anniversary of UnknownTekkit!

2024-06-08 08:00:00

Happy 10th Anniversary of UnknownTekkit!

UnknownTekkit officially launched on June 8, 2014. At the time I was running the server off an old spare computer that could hardly keep up. Within the first month, we had enough donations to move off this computer and on to shared hosting. A huge milestone for this small project. By December 2016, we reached our peak of 97 concurrent players. An absolutely incredible achievement, and by far the highest the Tekkit Classic modpack has seen since then!

Over these past 10 years, we have proudly served a total of 47,000 unique users, who have played for a whopping 560,000 hours, or nearly 64 years! On the staffing side, our total of 64 staff members have served for a collective 62 years (not all online!)! Thank you to all our past and present staff members!

As usual, there's a limited edition |10| anniversary suffix available on the store for today only for $10! under the 'Misc' section. Be sure to enter your Minecraft username in the PayPal checkout so we can deliver your purchase! Additionally, everything* in the store is 50% off for today only!

On a more somber note, it is undeniable that the Tekkit Classic modpack is nearing the end of its run. There are far fewer players across the entire pack than this server alone was seeing even 1-2 years ago. Because of such, we find it harder and harder to justify dedicating time to working on the server. As of today, I am officially placing UnknownTekkit Classic into 'Legacy' status.

Don't worry, the server isn't going away, but future development efforts will largely be limited to critical bug fixes, rather than making improvements and implementing new features. Map resets will also cease to occur unless absolutely necessary.

Thank you all for continuing to support and be a part of this community!

Map Reset Complete!

2024-03-01 18:00:00

The map reset is complete!

If you're unsure what's going on, the community recently voted for a map reset on our Discord server!

Details are the same as usual, ranks, playtime, vote streaks, cloud chest contents, claim blocks (up to 128k), and client-side waypoints have been kept.

The map, money (especially Pieter36's balance), inventories, claims, homes, alchemy bag contents, ender chest/bag contents, transmutation table(t) contents, cached votes, keep-inventory data, UTShop stock/stats, limited item placements, and anything else not listed has been cleared.

A copy of the previous map in its final state will be uploaded to the Tekkit Classic downloads page in the next few days.
