Apologies for the delays in updating. I'm currently looking for a new hosting solution for the server, as well as waiting on a gamebreaking bug in OTG to be fixed that I stumbled across last update attempt.
IRL takes priority, so responses may not be immediate!
Minimum system specs:
Storage: 75GB (for the game, worlds, and world backups)
CPU: 2014 quad core or newer
GPU: 2014 midrange or above dedicated card with 2GB of vram
Java: A recent version of java, 8_200 or newer. You can find a recent version here: Java on Filepuma. Options:
-Use the Jar launcher, By going to the twitch settings>minecraft> launcher and selecting "JAR Launcher", then setting the java version below that. At this point this is the best option for a one-time setup!
-In the new minecraft launcher specify it by going to Installations, hovering over the modpack, clicking the ••• on the right, clicking edit, more options, then browse for the executable (C:\Program Files\Java\<your java version>bin\javaw.exe for Windows), and clicking save. Note that this method will need redone every launch because twitch is crap!
Note that after changing between JAR and Native you will have to re-login. You will also then be told it wants to install the latest minecraft. To fix this just close and relaunch the pack!
Note: singleplayer worlds MAY take1-2 minutes to load, your game is NOT frozen! This is on my list of things to fix.
Add these to your java arguments and experience the magic!

So what is this pack all about?
This modpack is designed to be forward compatible, so that you can take your world with you to new minecraft versions. You ever get tired of having to start all over when you want to update to a new version of a modpack? I sure have, and this problem coupled with not being able to find a modpack that really fits what I want has led to me creating this modpack. Only mods with a track record of updating are in here, helping to ensure that they will be around for future versions of minecraft. While not a guarantee, this does mean that it will be easier, if not seamless, to update this pack to 1.13 and simply load up your world and continue where you left off.
This pack contains quests, dungeons, more villages, mazes, ruins, and all sorts of other structures with goodies hidden inside so you will always have somewhere to explore and things to do. Gamestages is NOT in here, as I believe in being able to play freely. There are a lot of mods of all sizes in here that you don't see in the bigger packs; I believe in giving all mods a fair chance to be in a pack, no matter how little they are. There are also some 1.13 like features in here already, such as swimming fish, coral reefs, and the 1.13 chunk save/item id system.

Profits and related (covering my arse):
At some point in the life of this pack I may make money off of it through donations or other mechanisms. If this occurs, it may be put towards the following: server upgrades, server utility bills, server colocation costs, other misc. server stuff, personal bills (so I can spend more time improving the pack), or any other purpose. For any money made in this manner, it will clearly be stated that the donations/payments/etc... is/are for my effort in making the modpack itself, and NOT for the mods contained therein (with exceptions of mods that I MYSELF may make in the future, which will have their own donation setup). This will be done to the best of my ability and that of the platform(s) in use. The Mojang EULA of course still applies.
If you still have any issues with your mod being in this modpack despite the above, the following will happen: (please bear in mind that I may not respond right away, I have a life outside minecraft)
1-I will forward you a payment of [1 / number of mods in the pack at the time of complaint]-th of money received for each mod affected (reported in complaint) from the time that the mod was added to the pack until the time the complaint is received, no questions asked, with a minimum of $5, using PayPal. No mod size/complexity calculations will be used as there is too much subjectivity involved.
2-The mod in question, all other mods by you, your team, teammates, etc..., and all add-on mods thereof will be queued for removal in the next pack update which will be 7-14 days later (to allow time for 3).
3-Notice will be given in the discord group, both to alert players to adjust their systems, and allow them to voice their opinions (I'm not liable for these).
3b-If you choose to backtrack at this point, I will earmark the mods involved such that if future complaints are received, no more chances will be given, and appropriate notice will be given.
4-You, and all of the above, will be added to a blacklist of people whose mods I will avoid in the future.
I'm a reasonable person, and will work with you directly to resolve any disputes, assuming you're a decent entity (covering all bases here). If you send me letters threatening to sue me right off the bat without having attempted to contact me here or on discord, I will make an attempt to contact your lawyer/attorney, explain the above, and then shame you on the pack discord so people know what kind of entity you are. 2-4 above will also occur thereafter. I am not liable for anything people say about you, their opinions may or may not reflect mine.
That said, this shouldn't be needed, sadly there are too many people out there that have nothing better to do than make other people's lives miserable. Don't be one of them, I'm not. If I get enough donations I may even start forwarding it on to support the development of mods in the pack.
