Feed The Beast originally was a launcher that brought with it one of the most played modpacks along with it, FTB Unleashed. Unleashed was a modpack that brought so many different aspects into one singular pack. That experience was one similar to an RPG – if you blended an epic RPG with Minecraft, then you’ve got a decent description of FTB Unleashed.
Nowadays, Feed The Beast remains as one of the primary launchers and sources of modpacks, with very little competition.
Available on the Feed The Beast launcher is a great variety of different modpacks. Many of them are completely different to one another, whereas some might have just some slight changes. This selection allows the player to have exactly the experience they want in Minecraft, without any worries. A big problem with mods (at least originally) was how painful they were to install. While it isn’t as big of an issue as it originally was, Feed The Beast streamlines the whole process. Throughout this process, every mod is tested to ensure it works with all the others, without issue. That means every modpack you decide to try out is free from problems and will work as intended.
Just like the Tekkit launcher, Feed The Beast allows for players to use mods in servers with ease. Running one of these modpacks on a server is a breeze and is pretty much hassle free. Playing with a few friends on a server with some of the best mods around has never been easier, all thanks to Feed The Beast. After the initial setup you’ll be ready to go and enjoy the world of Minecraft with its new additions!
The official Feed the Beast website has the files available to download the mod for Minecraft. You will also find a selection of sub mods for the mod pack such as Sky Factory and Infinity which will further transform your vanilla MC experience.
If you get stuck and need to find any answers to your questions that you may have about FTB, check out the official wiki. There are literally thousands of support pages that can help you find recipes or guides on how to do anything in the mod.
If the official wiki fails to answer the problems that you may have come across check out the unofficial wiki. Its very old and does contain some outdated principles but is known to contain information that the official page hasn’t got round to covering yet.
The hosts that appear on the Minecraft server hosting price lists on CompareGameHosting are the most likely to move around. Our list of MC providers is the largest for any game on our site and its because of this that they are most volatile.
The most likely game hosting companies to appear as cheapest are: Host Havoc and Enderman Hosting. These 2 companies have a catalogue of games that aren’t necessarily Minecraft so they don’t specialise like some other companies.
You do tend to find the specialist companies charge more for their packages but they do offer a higher quality control panel. The custom built control panel of the specialist Minecraft providers usually contain the latest mods and maps ready to install for their customers.
Spigot is a useful add on when it comes to playing Minecraft and other Mods. This is because it adds a lot of extra features and cool little technical changes. The mod is not actually considered as game changing with regards to story or setting. But it does add many changes that have been left out of the Vanilla version.
In total there are a 150 improvements that players have free access to and it’s very easy to add these to your server. You simply have to first download spigot and then choose which improvements to add. It couldn’t be simpler.
Horizons 2 is part of the Feed the Beast mod pack and is very different in nature. Where as most mods will gives players access to a huge range of well known mods. Horizons 2 does the completely opposite, giving players a much more random experience. Choosing to opt for a load of unheard mods that many players will have never seen or played. Which is a very brave move in some opinions, but has been very successful due to the amount of downloads is has.
There are over 60 different mods bundled in this super mod to help spice up your Minecraft server.
This game is a mod for Minecraft and extends the functionality through added blocks and gameplay modes.
