UPDATE: Aurora Novum is now public! http://www.technicpack.net/modpack/details/aurora-novum.281547 Our Build the Marathon series has finally reached its final stage. Using Galacticraft rockets, Mekanism power and IndustrialCraft tools (along with many, many others) we finally reached Mars, found Deimos, established a base and have begun converting the moon Deimos into the well known colony ship from Bungie's classic science fiction shooter. What will follow is a lot of crafting and placing blocks, which doesn't make for exciting watching (or playing, for that matter). We are going to continue the series, with less frequent episodes, focusing on showing off large finished areas and completed levels, or interesting features. In the meantime, we're creating a new series to give us an excuse to jump into some unexplored territory in Minecraft, and to that end, we're creating a new server with an almost completely different selection of mods. High technology is out. Dungeons, monsters and magic are in. Here is a list of mods we are working on for inclusion in this series. If we are able to get permission for all of them, we will make a public modpack from them in the Technic Launcher. If we're able to get permission for most of them, we may make an incomplete pack and then just advise players to download the extra mods separately directly from the minecraftforum.net threads, if that is what those mod authors want. Who knows, perhaps we'll even open up the server at some point! As with our other series, we're doing this for fun-- there is no advertising and no money being charged to anyone for anything. Here is a full list of mods, with permissions:
In the 77th episode of the series, we place the first terminal on our re-creation of the UESC Marathon!
 
Now that we are well into the reconstruction phase (which is fun to look at but not as much fun to watch) updates on this playlist will become less frequent, as we switch to showing off what we've done rather than just placing a lot of blocks. In the meantime, however, we'll be starting up a new hack and slash adventure type Minecraft series-- we've been looking forward to that for awhile now, hope you enjoy that, too! We will still keep up with construction here, as well as moving forward with some third party Marathon scenarios.
