Tekkit server

Although it initially started as a private white-listed server for myself and an extremely close friend, I run an open Tekkit 2 survival multiplayer server that you can join.

Connection details

You will need to install Tekkit 2 through the Technic Launcher if you do not already have it. You may want to allocate more RAM to the game since this is a heavy modpack.

Once in-game:

  1. Go to Multiplayer
  2. Add a new server
  3. In the hostname field, put: tekkit.acidiclight.dev:25565

If successful, you should see:

And if you do, go ahead and connect!

Server rules

As is the case with communities related to any of my other projects, the server is governed by the Community Code of Conduct.

Other than the rules stated within the Code of Conduct, there are no hard rules on what you’re allowed to/not allowed to do on the server. That means there is no spawn protection, nor any way of protecting your creations beyond what you’re able to do yourself. Not even I’m protected. That being said, please keep the following in mind:

  • I’m paying out of pocket to run the server. If you enjoy playing on it, consider supporting me on Patreon since that helps me continue to afford it and this website.
  • Do not intentionally lag the server. It’s my server and I will ban you if you lag or try to break it.
  • Do not annoy people. Remember that anything you do to inconvenience a player can also be done to you.
  • You still aren’t allowed to run client-side hacks. Not only is this against Minecraft’s TOS, but this isn’t Socially Distant. I can and will wipe your inventory, and may even ban you.

Technical details

This info might help diagnose potential unintentional lag issues.

  • Allocated RAM: 12 GB – this should be plenty, so likely won’t be the cause of any issues
  • Server location: Germany – it’s a Hetzner Robot box. Some regions, notably Australia, may experience a higher ping.
  • CPU: Intel i7-6700 (8) @ 4.000GHz
  • Player limit: 20 – this is mostly to prevent server bandwidth spikes, but if the server’s popular enough that the player limit is continuously exceeded, then I’ll consider increasing it based on community feedback.
