About Awakening Modpack:


Awakening - Sky of Diamonds is a modpack designed with 1 goal in mind... to be as much frickin' fun as possible. From the moment you spawn on 9 blocks of diamond you know this is going to be different. Unlike a lot of modern sky-blocks; which seem to have drastically increased grind and become hugely over complicated, SoD breaks the mold by reducing initial grind and focusing more on bringing back the good times. There's no 100 long nested armour crafting chains here, no 9x9 crafting just to make a stick. What we do have is a bunch of great mods, from lesser know to the classics, a whole bunch of dimensions to explore, 1000+ quests and a whole bunch of down right wacky fun. An ideal "pallet cleanser" pack to play between larger packs, like Awakening - Classic ;)


Need a server to play with friends? Don't know how to set one up? Just rent a pre-configured server!

Click on the picture above to select a plan (at least 3GB), and use my code awakening25 to get 25% off your first month!


Note: This is a heavy pack. You will need a fairly decent computer to run it. I would recommended setting your RAM to at least 6GB in the Curse/Twitch launcher settings (8GB+ is recommended for best experience). Servers should have a minimum of 4GB of RAM, but ideally more for the best experience. The pack also requires Java 8 (do not use an older or newer version). A performance guide can be found (HERE).
