(I keep calling it test because the worlds get wiped when everything breaks)
The old ones were a bit too abused (griefers...).
We are using a block logging tool on this server - if you do something bad we will catch you!
LAUNCH TEKKIT, and not the other versions. TEKKIT is the SMP version!
Can't get into the server? Make sure you're using 3.1.2!! You might need to select dev builds in the techniclauncher. Maybe not.

Bolgimo put me on to this!!
It is Minecraft on steroids. There is so much more to do and learn, it's quite intense. You can build oil refineries, pump liquids around, mine uranium ore which can be used in a nuclear reactor... and yes the nuclear reactors can go a bit Chernobyl
There are SSP and SMP versions of the game, Tekkit is the SMP version. I am tempted to put up a test server, it's seriously complex and you will seemingly always have something new to build. It can be a bit daunting at first I guess, but the rewards are worth it.
You can build machines that will strip mine a 9x9 area, then afterwards a machine to back fill it with a material like stone or sand (or whatever). You can pump lakes dry, use a jetpack to fly around, even use solar panels and wind energy to power your creations.
I feel like I've only scratched the surface of what is possible.
Oh, Factions might be working.
FYI for everyone, Faction is working just great and it is patched so that EE won't bypass it. Which means, if you protect something, it should be totally protected.
And now with logging, if someone does find a way to break it, we will catch them...
Factions is very easy to use to claim land:
(now I hope I remember these commands correctly)
Type /f to find out about it, and try /f help 1,2,3,4 etc
/f create <faction name> -- creates your very own faction...
/f claim -- claims the chunk you are standing in - by default you can claim (I believe) 10 chunks, so make them count...
/f sc -- lets you see the chunk boundaries (you can also enable chunk boundaries grid in Rei's Minimap)
/f invite <playername> -- Invite your friend to join your faction..
/f join <faction-name> -- accept the invitation..
/f sethome -- essentially like the /sethome command on the Vanilla server - sets a home for your faction
/f home -- travel instantly to your home! woo

Don't abuse it. Don't claim land other people are clearly already in. Let's play nicely...
