A modpack is a collection of mods curated to work together, enhancing your gaming experience by customizing gameplay. You can create a modpack by selecting the "My Modpacks" tab and adding the mods you'd like to play with.

The next step is launching the game to ensure all mods load properly and work together without conflicts. This setup process might require some trial and error, but no coding skills are needed - making it relatively easy. By combining multiple mods, modpacks provide a comprehensive overhaul that transforms the game, offering a rich, immersive, and exciting experience.
