so guys, a breif introduction to feed the beast. its both a modpack and a series of challenge maps which are a combination of skyblock and CTM maps using various mods.
this post is about the modpack.
most of you have probably heard about tekkit, what you may not know is that feed the beast has all the mods tekkit has, plus some extras like portal gun, thaumcraft and steves carts and mystcraft and forestry!
but meg, why install this and not tekkit?
for a whole bunch of reasons 1. more mods .2 tekkit dosnt always ask mod makers to incude their mods, this make some kinda angry and its rather unethical, feed the beast was made with cooperation from the mod makers, some even adding features for the pack so its a more ethical alternitive to tekkit 3. feed the beast was designed to work with a series of adventure/challenge maps 4. the extra mods it includes are super usefull, like forestry for automatic farms, and others are just cool, like thaumcraft, and mystcraft which allows the creation of many worlds. 5. FTB has a different update schedule to tekkit, rather than waiting for every mod to update, which can take agees, they will be adding mods as they update, this means more frequent updates and less of a wait.
sounds cool, but why post about it now?
because the official launch is comign soon, with an acompanying livestream event with geusts such as docm, direwolf20, florastar, eloraam and more!!! its gona be super cool
