Welcome to Obscurity!

A lightweight, highly customised, quest-based modpack created by SnowShock35 and JohnnyMobbins. It was the winning entry to FTB's "Jampacked 2" competition held in 2015 which earned its popularity within the modded community. The modpack features a custom map that introduces a whole new survival experience to Minecraft - never seen before - in which the darkness is the enemy and light is the key to your survival.

What are you waiting for? The world's survival lies within your hands...

> DISCLAIMER: To ensure the smoothest gameplay experience, please use the latest version of Java 8 and allocate a minimum of 4GB of RAM to Minecraft.

Obscurity Trailer Video


"Earth has begun to feel the effects of man’s hunger for resources and ruthless destruction of the environment. People have begun to worry about what will be left for the future. Something has to be done. A group of highly-trained physicists have been working on something new and very dangerous. World Compression! Although we intended to save the Earth, it seems it may now be trapped. You are now the only one who can save us all. There’s no turning back, you must save the world, as time is running out."

Is this project dead?

No. Obscurity is certainly not dead and a port to newer Minecraft versions is under way.

Why were there no files on this project for some time?

There were some issues. Read this post on Reddit.

Why are you still actively developing on 1.7.10?

I'm not. I dislike using old versions of the game especially ones that are as old as 1.7.10. Had the project not been taken down it would've been left as is. However, I have worked to restore this version for nostalgia reasons. There will likely be no new versions for 1.7.10 from the end of 2020.

Where is JohnnyMobbins?

I have no idea.
