The Easter event is officially over and the Easter Lamb can happily return to its home, with many rescued Easter baskets in hand. It was a great success; almost 100 of you came together to participate in the Easter basket hunt and together, you found 2471 baskets! The Easter Shepherd will hang out around spawn for another week so you have a chance to trade your baskets for more exciting prizes. We hope that you all enjoyed the event as much as we did and had a nice Easter.
For the prizes, we promised you that everyone who found all their baskets every day of the event would get Win+ and a special title. If the above numbers weren't impressive enough, the outcome of this took us even more by surprise. A total of 14 people managed to get on the server for seven consecutive days and find their twelve Easter baskets every single day, amounting to a total of 84 baskets in one week per person. All of these players will get the prize.
All the above have earned themselves a special commendation. As promised, each of you will get our special prize.
30 days of Win+
A special EggHunter in-game title.
You can switch between this title and your normal rank title any time with the new "/title" command. Thank you everyone for playing in our Easter event. You guys made this Winthier's best Easter event so far and we can't wait to see you again at the next event.
Springtime is once again upon us, and with it comes Easter! This year on Winthier, it seems that a friendly pair of visitors have settled at spawn. One would think that a Shepherd and his lamb would be very happy around Easter, but unfortunately, some nasty spiders have snatched away the poor sheep’s Easter Baskets. It’s up to you to help get them back!
Speak to the sheep at spawn, and he’ll give you some very special eggs which can be used to find the missing baskets which are hidden around spawn. Toss one into the air, and it may offer a hint of which direction to go. When you’ve found a basket, you can give it to the Shepherd at spawn, who will reward you for helping his Lamb. The more baskets you turn in, the better your reward will be!
Each player can find twelve baskets per day, and the player who has found the most baskets by midnight Server Time on Easter Sunday will be given Win+ and the title "EggHunter” for one month!
We hope everyone enjoys this hunt, and has a wonderful holiday. Happy Easter!
This implies that with Unleashed, we will be stuck with using the exact same mod pack and server version. No mod additions, no Minecraft version updates, no bugfixes, no new features at all. This is sad news for many people who enjoy playing on our FTB server every day, especially the plethora of newcomers we have had the pleasure to welcome on WinFTB lately. This leaves us with no choice but to look for a replacement for Unleashed so we can continue to supply you with updates and bugfixes.
@iGoatWarrior Monster is the Unleashed/Ultimate replacement and its out in Beta.
Here come the good news. The FTB Monster mod pack is there to replace Unleashed. It is brand new, has just come out of beta last week and we immediately went ahead to create a fresh new world with a whole new spawn for you guys. The mod pack itself is updated for the latest version of FTB, based on Minecraft 1.6.4. It has almost twice as many mods as Unleashed had and more than three times as many items in the game.
Starting next Monday, March 17, 00:00 server time (Sunday, 7pm EST), we will switch from Unleashed to Monster. Everyone on FTB will start out in an all new world and have a plethora of new mods, blocks, items and gear at their disposal. You can already find Monster 1.1.0 in your FTB launcher. Instructions on how to set it up properly to connect with Winthier Monster will be provided in time on our forum and the Winthier wiki.
