I'm sure almost all of you have noticed by now, but the server is updated to the latest Pixelmon version, 7.0.1!
The pixelmon devs knocked it out of the park on this one, being one of the biggest updates we've ever had. With it being so large, there are bound to be a few bugs to work out, so bear with us! We are including some helpful info below, make sure to read thoroughly!
How to Install
If you’re using technic, we recommend downloading the "EZ Pixelmon" pack. It has everything you need for RC (Like gameshark, optifine and a few more mods!). If you already had it before, you should be prompted with an “Update” option when next online.
If you have any mods you want to keep, go into your .technic folder first and remove the mods folder from the pack, then re-add the specific mods you want afterward. For all future updates, EZ will update alongside RC’s updates.
To install technic, simply head to https://www.technicpack.net/ , from there, install it as you normally would. After you have it, you can click on the "Modpacks" tab at the top, then type into the box below "EZ Pixelmon" to find the modpack. Downloading is simple, no more effort required!
If you are going with the forge route, it’s a bit more complicated. You will need to download the mod from here https://www.reforged.gg/ . It will also tell you the recommended forge version if you scroll down on the same link, which you can find here https://files.minecraftforge.net/ .
Then, you will have to load 1.12.2, install the forge version, and let it generate a new section in your mods folder.
Navigate to your %appdata% folder, then to .minecraft, then to mods. Put your downloaded version of Pixelmon in the folder and you’re good to go. Any other mods like gameshark can be put into the mods folder as well, just make sure they are compatible with Pixelmon or you will get some errors!
As many of you have seen at this point, the update is massive to say the least, meaning there are a TON of new things to do. It might seem daunting at first, but we have went ahead and made a comprehensive changelog for all features added, with a bit of extra info you might have had questions about!
Buycraft Additions + Sale
All these new pokemon means we have to add them to shop as well! All of Generation 7 is now added to the shop, which you can find here .
As well, we have changed a few prices here and there to go along with our recent balancing patches. We are in the middle of reevaluating and putting more things on the shop, but it should all be done within a few days.
To commemorate the update, we are having a 25% Sale on everything until the 17th! Now is the time to pick up those new legends!
We have some changes we've been working on for a while, as well as a full list of all the gifts and otherwise that were edited server side as a result of the update. We will be compiling it and completing anything else needed, and posting in a couple days. We will be listing thoroughly what has changed as far as buycraft, in game, and a few other exciting things!
We appreciate all of you playing on RC, and we don't say that enough. We have such an awesome community. We want to see it grow and we want all of you to enjoy your time individually as well. Of course, if you have anything you would like to comment on, feel free by the means we have (Enjin Mail, Discord PMs, Tickets). We look forward to hearing all the feedback you have so we might make the server an even better place for each of you (keep in mind we can't do everything though, so cut us some slack too!).
We hope you all enjoyed this update, and everything involved. We hope to resolve our remaining bugs within a day or two, and focus on future additions then!
