8th Anniversary

2022-06-30


Store Changes

As Enjin has ceased to maintain their community website service, and may be moving to close it entirely in the future, we've chosen to move the UnknownTekkit store to https://store.ut-mc.com/, which Vanilla currently uses. Both stores will now be available in the same place.

Like with the Vanilla store, rank-upgrades for Tekkit Classic will no longer require that you purchase each individual upgrade; you can instead purchase a higher rank for an automatically reduced cost.

The bad news: those with legacy ranks (UTv1-5, including Slime, Spider, Zombie, Ender Dragon, Unknown, (Old) Custom, the Christmas and Halloween ranks, and any others not actively listed in the store) will be unable to update to the UTv6 ranks for a reduced cost. It is highly recommended you do so before the store transition.

We also must say goodbye to the UTCredits system, as the new store platform has no support for such. If given the opportunity, we may implement a new, and improved, system down the road, but until then, we'll have to make due without it. Any unspent UTCredits will be permanently lost once this change occurs.

Starting July 1, 2022 at 12:00AM, the Tekkit Classic store will be unavailable. The store should re-open on the new website by July 2, 2022 at 12:00AM.

If you have any questions or concers regarding this change, please contact us through the UnknownTekkit (Tekkit Classic) Discord server, or on the Contact page.

8th Anniversary

2022-06-08


Happy 8th Anniversary to UnknownTekkit!

Thank you all for being a part of the UnknownTekkit community!

In addition to UnknownTekkit being a whopping 8 years old, Tekkit Classic aslo reached a milestone recently! While the exact launch date is uncertain, we can certainly say that Tekkit Classic, as we know it, is now 10 years old! It's incredible to see how long this modpack has held on, despite not receiving any updates in a decade!

In the past year, 2870 individuals opened over 25,000 crates, and played for over 33,000 hours. That's over 3.75 years! We saw over 1650 new users join, and over 30,000 votes were cast on the server lists! This year we also surpassed 50,000 unique users on the server!

In celebration of this, use coupon code UT8Y for 40% off your next store purchase! Valid for one use per user; may be applied to up to 2 of each item; expires June 8, 2022, at 8:00PM EDT

As always, a huge shoutout to the UnknownTekkit staff team. You guys keep this place from burning itself to the ground. Keep up the great work!

And finally, there's a limited edition |8| suffix available in the store to celebrate UT's 8th Anniversary! https://www.unknowntekkit.com/

New Server!

2022-01-08


If you're on our Tekkit Classic Discord server, you've probably heard by now, we've just released UTMC Vanilla!

UTMC Vanilla is a survival focused server running Minecraft 1.17.1, and is open for you to join right now at play.ut-mc.com!

You can join with any version 1.17.1 or newer, though the server itself runs 1.17.1.

This server has many similarities with UnknownTekkit, such as playtime-based ranking, gold shovel land claims, and the inclusion of ChestShops; however, there are also several key differences!

For starters, it's vanilla. There are no mods. However, there are jobs! Both for something to do and compete with, as well as a way to earn in-game money!
There also is no UTShop. Just ChestShops for now! Maybe even a player mall coming soon if there's enough interest in one!
I don't want to spoil too much, so go check it out yourself!

Other changes with this release include:

  • Website Overhaul; many things have moved places, some theming has been updated, and a new logo has been added! We've also made some room for the Vanilla server's pages!
  • Further removal from Enjin; the only thing left using the Enjin website is the store due. Please use https://ut-mc.com/ as your bookmarked site for UTMC going forward!
  • Addition of a Vanilla Discord server
  • Addition of a new store for the Vanilla server, available at https://store.ut-mc.com/

If you're wondering, what does this mean for UnknownTekkit (Tekkit Classic)?

Nothing. We're still going to continue running and maintaining UnknownTekkit as we always have.
We're rapidly approaching 8 years online, and I hope to see that number continue to grow for many more!

Are UTCredits still going to be a thing?

On UnknownTekkit? Yes. While I can't say for certain what the future holds for UTCredits, I can say that they're still going to be around for quite a bit longer.
On Vanilla? No. There is no equivalent to UTCredits on Vanilla at this time, though we may create a system similar, but significantly better, in the future.

I'd also like to give a huge shoutout to the team that helped me make this all possible!

Midnight__Wolf, Murrrin, and Little_Raichu; I couldn't have done this without you guys! Thank you for all your hard work!
