Setting up a second server that will be running a "Feed the Beast" modpack focused around magic and tech themed mods. This second server will be connected to the currently existing vanilla server via BungeeCord, allowing for a globally shared chat! If you have both Vanilla Minecraft AND the required Modpack installed, you can seamlessly switch between both servers by using a command.
Issues with this that we will still have to sort out include IP-forwarding and obviously mismatching versions and assets between both servers. I however believe that with some testing and studying we can figure out how all of this works. (I've done worse stuff... :D)
The servers will be entirely seperated, each with its own staff lineup (and possibly its own ranks), own economy, own inventories and player files.
Only the chat will be shared, to allow our community to stay together while everyone can play what they enjoy most!
