    Agrarian Skies 2 - expressions of interest

    Agrarian Skies 2 is the sequal to the popular map (oddly enough) named Agrarian Skies, as of posting currently in Beta. Agrarian Skies (1) was also mentioned quite a while back when we were talking about possibly adding a modded server.

    This is a hardcore skyblock style modpack, you play on an island in a void world where you go from nothing but your fist and a tree and work your way all the way up to a fully teched (and magicked) base. The progression is enhanced by the addition of a mod called "Hardcore Questing Mod", this tracks your progress and also dispenses rewards to players. The HQM also tracks the players lives, of which you get a limited amount of, and also as a part of the rewards will give you additional lives.

    This is a map is played using a mod pack, it features many of the usual suspects you'd find in a general FTB/Technic pack such as Applied Energistics, Tinker's Construct, Thermal Expansion and Thaumcraft. You'll also find a few mods that are more common to these sorts of maps such as Ex Nihilo and  If you are inexperienced with modded minecraft the HQM will guide you through nearly every step of the way to complete the quest. The first map was the best introduction into modded minecraft that I've seen and this looks to be no different.

    This sounds a lot like a single player map, and it does have a focus on a mostly solitary style, however playing it on a multiplayer server does have a few benefits: 
    • There's a party system, so you can play together in teams (if that's your thing)
    • You can talk with other players while working towards your own goals (these islands won't be close together)
    • You're playing on a server, and after getting the appropriate resources you will be able to chunk load your base so you can automatically gather resources
    • You can race each other to complete your quest
    • There'll be someone there to laugh at you when you fall off your island :P
    Purely an expression of interest post right now, the map/pack is available in a beta form and I personally don't feel it's quite ready to be played, especially the SMP portion, just seeing if there is any interest in people playing it together on a server.
