How to play:


1. To get started, go to the files tab and look at the different versions of the Cursed Walking modpack that are available. More details on the differences between these is available in the above spoiler.

2. Next, start the modpack. Once the Minecraft launcher opens up, check how much RAM you have allocated and make sure to set it to at least 4GB, preferably 6GB. This modpack is pretty RAM demanding, and if you are playing with shaders or at a higher render distance you may need to allocate up to 8GB of RAM. Watch this video if you are unsure how to allocate RAM. If you are experiencing lag spikes in game, it is most likely because you have not allocated enough RAM.

3. If you are playing single player, create a new world. In the world creation menu, you have the option to enable city generation by clicking the button at the top right that says "Cities." In this menu you can choose from a variety of different city presents, or customize city generation manually.

4. To enable the resource packs that are available with this modpack, go to settings>resourcepacks then move the resource packs that are available on the left, to the right, by clicking on the arrow. 

Q: I am trying to play the Cursed Walking modpack on a server but there is a crash/bug/issue.
A: The Cursed Walking modpack is currently not multiplayer compatible out of the box, so expect issues if you are playing this modpack on a server. However, if you are playing this modpack with Scalacube hosting, the modpack should work as intended. A good alternative, if you don't want to use a server, is the Essential mod, and it works with this modpack. 

Q: Are there server files available for this modpack?
A: Yes, but I did not make them so I cannot attest to their reliability. They are available in a pinned message in the help channel on my discord server.

Q: Optifine/Oculus is crashing/freezing the modpack; what do I do?
A: Please read the changelog of the version you are trying to play. In some versions, Optifine and/or Oculus does not work, or requires certain mods to be removed so it can work.

> Info on the meaning of alpha vs beta vs Release:

Alpha: These files have known issues and it is not recommended you use them. It can have a small known problem, or a large one (like the game crashing on startup). They exist only as a way to transfer the modpack versions between my different devices. These files will be deleted when they are no longer needed for my use.

Beta: These files are most likely fine, but they have not been tested rigorously. There may be crashes or other bugs, but it is unlikely they are game breaking. These files will be deleted when a Release for the version is ready.

Release: These files have been tested thoroughly and should operate as planned. It is recommended to play a Release over a beta file. However, there still could be issues my team or I have not caught. Let me know about any issues you run into. These files are permanent, and most likely will not be deleted.


> Info on the difficulty levels:

Normal Difficulty: This is the easiest difficulty level for the Cursed Walking modpack, and is the difficulty level present in all versions of the modpack except where stated otherwise. The health system is normal, you don't have to worry about thirst and temperature, and zombies don't infect you. While this is the easiest version, it still is challenging so be careful!


Hard Difficulty: This version builds upon the Normal Difficulty version and adds more mods to make surviving harder. It is denoted by the "(Hard)" at the end of the name of a version of the modpack. While playing with this difficulty level, you will have to heal yourself with bandages; normal healing is disabled. There is also a 25% chance to get infected with the zombie virus if a zombie hits you. The infection will kill you in five minutes. To cure the infection, eat a golden apple. More zombies will spawn during the day, and zombies can mine blocks.

Custom: A custom difficulty preset made to work with the zombie apocalypse map I am working on. It is only available for the 1.16.5 version of the modpack. In terms of actual difficulty, it sits somewhere between Normal and Hard Difficulty. While this was made specifically for the map I am working on, it can be played without the map just fine.
