Cottage magic is a type of modern, contemporary eclectic witchcraft practice that utilizes domestic magic. It emphasizes the magic in everyday things such as cooking, crafting, and decorating one's surroundings. Cottage Witch has a similar emphasis, expanding on the mechanics of cookery, artisanry, and decor - and, of course, magic. It enhances the natural world that your adventures take place in, both by overhauling biomes and wildlife.
It intends to try to preserve the vanilla progression, augmenting it with mostly-balanced items and new mechanics. The pack also provides Quests to lead you through much of the content, making it suitable for those who are new to mods, or who just want some guidance.
Recast is a remix of the original Cottage Witch.
You can find the original modpack here.
What is Different about Recast?
Recast is a smaller pack which sticks closer to the creator's original vision for the pack (hi it's me). It is still on Minecraft 1.19.2. For a wide overview of the differences between the packs, please see this wiki article: Differences Between Versions! Or, if you want to delve into the nitty gritty, check out the full Patch Notes from 0.1 to 1.0!

This modpack was designed to be used on mid-range computers, and 4-6gb of RAM is suggested. This modpack is also NOT compatible with OptiFine, but it includes Oculus if you want to use Shaders! All screenshots are taken using Complementary Shaders v4 - which is my favourite shader pack, and I highly recommend it!
