Ever watched Direwolf20's Server gameplay and wished, "Man! I wish I had cool people that I could play with on a server too! It's just so difficult to find players to play with these days." Well look no further. This is the place for you. I am trying to form a group that will bond, build, play, laugh and explore together. A place where you log on to play with friends, not just other players. The requirements may be tough, but it's for a purpose.
I am looking for a group to play with on a server. Here it is, short and simple.I enjoy playing with mods, particularly with the direwolf20 modpack using the FTB client. If you have ever seen Dire's SMP videos, then you have an idea of what I am looking for. I would like a more mature playerbase on the server, no younger than 18. If you are younger than 18, don't bother replying to this. Read no further.
TeamSpeak 3 is the preferred option for communication on this server, but if you don't have a mic, it would be fine to just use the in-game chat.
Hosting the Server: This is another issue that I face. I have been searching for a server to play on for a few months now, but I'm tired of searching and not finding anything. I am now asking for suggestions on hosting. As a group, we could pitch in and get an actual server to host us, or if the group is not too large and there is someone that could host us, that would be the preferred option.
Uploading the LP: Just want to make this very clear, I am NOT uploading to YouTube. So if you are a rising star that does not have a channel, I cannot help you. BUT: if you would like to use our group and record the SMP, FEEL FREE TO DO SO. Likewise, if you have a problem with your voice and character being on YouTube, I don't recommend applying to this group. (Also, keeping language clean is a must. it also expands the viewer base.)
Be 18 or over. And mature.
Have a basic understanding of the Direwolf20 ModPack. You don't have to be an expert, as neither am I, but at least know the very basics. And plus, discovering new builds and items with others is one of the fun aspects of playing with mods.
Willing to work with others, not just running off on your own and building your own stuff to show it off. (Why else would I have a group to play with? We build, laugh, talk, together!)
I live in the Sao Paulo area in Brasil (I am American though), so the time zone is a bit ahead, but only by a couple hours. If we can get people to work more towards the evening, so we can have more people on then, that'd be great.
Mic + TeamSpeak.
Recording Software + YouTube account. (This will not affect the probability of being chosen.)
I know this seems a bit harsh and maybe a bit excessive. But I'm tired of mediocre servers and players that want to play by themselves on a multiplayer server. This server will be PVE only, on HARD difficulty, and will aim to start on Monday, July 2. If you think that you would like to join me and others in an enjoyable FTB experience, apply here using the application below. Please, be honest in your applications, and be thorough. Ideas for server hosting is a required field. Phew. Ok. Now. Hopefully, when all this is over, and the server is underway, we'll have a close-knit group that will have tons of fun and will make some SWEET stuff.
LET THE APPLICATIONS BEGIN!

Type of player (Architect, Miner, Companion, redstone maniac, Thaumaturge, Explorer, Hunter, etc.):
Thanks for applying! we can take a couple more. This is a sweet group so far! nice to meet you all! If you don't really have any experience with the mods? join anyways! we will all learn and experience things at the same time, so... Don't be shy!
How long you've been playing MC: Ever since it started
Experience with FTB mods (particularly Direwolf20 Pack): I know all of the mods and can do alot with them.
A little about yourself and how you interact with others on the server: When I play with others, I try to be the engineer of the group. I make everything as compact and functional as possible.
Have you ever been banned? if so why: Nope
YouTube Name: Wolfhowl42
Planning on Recording? Possibly, if I can find a good, free screen recorder. Fraps is lagging on me and the voice and video isn't in sync.
Type of player (Architect, Miner, Companion, redstone maniac, Thaumaturge, Explorer, Hunter, etc.): Im a huge redstone fanatic and a crazy engineer. Always trying to find simple and automated ways of doing certain tasks.
What size group are you looking for? I would like it to be a good sized group. Anything less than 15 - 20 players seems right to me.
Why do you want to join this group: I want to gain more experience in Lets Plays and I believe that being in a group can help me with that.
And lastly, your ideas for server hosting: I think creeperhost has a good server service. Unfortunately I can't put in any money for the server. My bad.
IGN (MC Username): Umbrein Age: 20 Gender: Male Experience with FTB mods (particularly Direwolf20 Pack): None at all, this will be a MAJOR learning experience for me. A little about yourself and how you interact with others on the server: Well I used to run a small server that was meant for people to record on. Technically it's still up but I'm taking time away from it to collect myself. I've spent the past couple of years endlessly pursuing these sort of 'big' projects and haven't taken much time to myself. I am used to recording videos and uploading them to Youtube, but I am probably just not going to record, at least not at first. I want to learn how FTB works, I want to make friends, and I want to just have fun without stress. I really enjoy solo projects as well as team projects, I can't just stick to one or the other. I really enjoy friendly groups and a group of people that I can learn, grow, and build with just seems so excellent to me. Have you ever been banned? if so why: Nope, I've never really played public servers. TeamSpeak: I don't have it, but that's an easy fix. YouTube Name: ChrisTheCapn is my current one, I've closed my old ones just to start over. I won't start recording and uploading for a long while, if ever again. As I said before, I just need to relax and have fun without any worry about deadlines, quality, etc. Planning on Recording? If I ever decide to start up Youtube again, yea definitely. Type of player (Architect, Miner, Companion, redstone maniac, Thaumaturge, Explorer, Hunter, etc.): Architect and Redstone Maniac (though I've never tinkered with ANY of the FTB mods to be honest. What size group are you looking for? Any, really. I like bigger for the fact of variety, but also small so that it feels more like a community. This size sort of fits both. Why do you want to join this group: For the past year or so Feed The Beast has become all the rage, it's the mod-pack that has taken Minecraft to being one of the most viewed games ever on Youtube, coming close to outweighing SeaNanners and other Youtubers of that caliber and their playing CoD. It takes the game to a whole other level, one of which there is thousands upon thousands of new things to explore. This server also opens up such a great opportunity for me to meet new people that I can build wonderful creations with. I grew up playing with legos and I always found the best things I ever built were castles and boats and things of the sorts that I had friends help me with. Minecraft to me is just virtual legos. ^-^ And lastly, your ideas for server hosting: Personally my best experience has been with FragNet and Allgamer, but I am not sure how their FTB hosting compares to others, so I'm not the best person to ask for about this. They also use McMyAdmin for a control panel and I am not sure how that interacts with FTB as well.
How long you've been playing MC: I have played Minecraft since beta.
Experience with FTB mods (particularly Direwolf20 Pack): I haved used several of the different packs in FTB, including Direwolf20. I think Direwolf20 is the modpack i prefer.
A little about yourself and how you interact with others on the server: My name is Vyrewolf. I'm 20 years old, currently in college, and play video games any chance I can get. On servers (especially FTB or Tekkit), I generally prefer working with a small group, or working near and doing business with nearby players. Never underestimate the power of a partnership. If players on the server are not trustworthy, i find it very hard to go all out because I feel I have to keep things small to not be a target.
Have you ever been banned? if so why: Not to my knowledge.
TeamSpeak: I have it and use it for recording audio from multiplayer let's plays.
YouTube Name: Vyrewolf
Planning on Recording?: Of course! I have only recently started recording, and have enjoyed the process of recording my let's play on the custom map Kingdom of the Sky.
Type of player (Architect, Miner, Companion, redstone maniac, Thaumaturge, Explorer, Hunter, etc.): I would call myself a Hobbyist or a Tinkerer. I know at least something from most mods, and can do a bit of everything. I suppose that would also make me a good companion, able to be backup on just about anything.
What size group are you looking for?: I'd prefer 2-4, but I can work with any size group as long as I have a bit of room to tinker on my own every once in a while. 2-4 players seems to be few enough to require a significant amount of work, and yet large enough to make large scale projects possible
Why do you want to join this group: A group of people around my own age, getting together to have a server with no PVP? Along with a good opportunity to do a FTB let's Play? Why wouldn't I want to join this group?
And lastly, your ideas for server hosting: Sorry, I don't have enough experience on FTB servers to be much help on hosting ideas.
EDIT: if this server has a good community, I hope to finally complete a massive build i've always wanted to do.
What a nerve. Why does age matter? I mean, like, playing with a 5 year old isn't that bad.
Little kids are annoying as hell. When we say to be mature, we don't want these little kids to be swearing off their tiny mouths. I hate playing with kids under my own age. I'm 17 and being close to 18, I can see their reasons why.
What a nerve. Why does age matter? I mean, like, playing with a 5 year old isn't that bad.
Especially the fact that some conversations that we mature, adult players might be having may not be suitable for younger players. We can choose who to play or not play with, why is that a problem to you? We aren't the only minecraft group.
Experience with FTB mods (particularly Direwolf20 Pack): I have played the pack since it was added to FTB. I have also ran a server for a while but everyone stopped playing.
A little about yourself and how you interact with others on the server: I can play solo or work as a team. I like team work over solo. I like the bees and making complex auto systems. Can not do the turtle programing thing though/
Have you ever been banned? if so why: Never been ban
TeamSpeak: Right now I do not have TeamSpeak but if I get added will get it. I have a Mic
YouTube Name: I do not youtube
Planning on Recording? No
Type of player (Architect, Miner, Companion, redstone maniac, Thaumaturge, Explorer, Hunter, etc.): Miner
What size group are you looking for? Not looking for a Large group. ten or so be nice
Why do you want to join this group: I have not been able to find a good group of people to work with
And lastly, your ideas for server hosting: I really Like fragnet It is what I used when I ran my server. Never had a problem with them. Plus they have great tech suport
