This thread will contain important information that will help you to get started with playing Modded Minecraft.

Spoiler: What is Modded Minecraft? (hover to show)

If you have never played Modded Minecraft before, The very first thing to consider is your computer hardware. Different mods have different resource requirements, and every modpack is different. Generally the more mods you have in a modpack at once, the more resources it will use.
Spoiler: How to find your system specifications (hover to show)

Minimum Recommended Hardware Specifications:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5GHz / AMD A10-7800 APU 3.5 GHz or equivalent
VIDEO CARD: GeForce 700 Series or AMD Radeon Rx 200 Series (excluding integrated chipsets) with OpenGL 4.5

Once you have determined that your computer is capable of playing Modded Minecraft, The next step is to of course start installing Mods or install a whole Modpack.  ;D  8)

How do you install a Mod or Modpack?

There's really no standard way to install a Minecraft mod because each mod is created by a different person using different methods. Most mods can be installed relatively easy by using Minecraft Forge. However, For simplicity's sake, I'm going to show you how to automate the installation of an entire Modpack using the Twitch Desktop Application.

1.) First, you will need to install the Twitch Desktop Application. You can download it from here.

2.) Once you're logged into the Twitch App, You will need to "Enable Minecraft". Click on "Mods" in the top menu, Look for Minecraft and click on it, Now click on the "Enable Minecraft" button.

Once it is enabled, you will need to "Install" it. By using the Twitch Desktop App, you're actually installing a completely separate installation of Minecraft. This is recommended so that your original Minecraft installation that you use will remain untouched.

3.) Now you're ready to install a Modpack! Click on "Browse All Modpacks" and search for the Modpack you would like to install. DoD has a server with the "Direwolf" Modpack so we will search for that.

Hover over the picture of the Modpack and click "Install". The Twitch App will now proceed to install all of the files required to play this Modpack.

Once it is done installing, you will see a new "Play" button on the picture of the Modpack, Click this button to launch your newly installed Modpack!

4.) Once the Minecraft Launcher starts, you will need to switch your profile to "FTB Presents Direwolf20 1.12" and then click Play. The Minecraft client will then start to download all the necessary files for Minecraft to run since technically this is a brand new installation of the game. Once that is done the client will then proceed to start loading all of the Mods in the Modpack. This step can take awhile depending on the number of Mods that it has to load, So please be patient.

5.) Once the Minecraft client is fully loaded, you are ready to join the server and enjoy! Click on Multiplayer and add the server Once you're connected, execute the command "/server forge" and you will be connected to the server!

That concludes this tutorial, If you have any questions or run into any problems, You can make a post here on the forum, Or contact one of the Staff. You can also contact us via our Discord server.

See you in-game!

Server News and Announcements / Skyblock Challenges Update
« on: June 29, 2017, 09:53:18 PM »
The Skyblock challenges update has finally arrived! This update aims towards changing a few things that have been long overdue, the update also focuses on challenges rewarding much more than before. This will make progressing through SlimeFun more enjoyable especially with the higher tiers. Challenges also now have better rewards but now come with a daily cool down while other challenges that were previously not repeatable will now have a weekly cool down. As you progress through page 1 of the updated challenges you will also receive several types of Item Cache rewards. These caches will make it easier for us to distribute various types of special items and blocks, specifically decoration blocks to encourage more variation and creativity on islands.

In addition to the challenges update, block values have also been updated and most players should see an overall increase in island levels. MasterRahl(aka Nightwolf3218) has made a detailed post here that explains how the block values were changed and why.

Also, due to challenges now having a daily cool down there is now a new /sell command where you can resume trading mass produced resources (ie: carrots, potatoes, beetroot, etc.) through a GUI to the server for amounts similar to what you were previously receiving from challenges.

Another new feature that you will notice are special Gadget Components that you will receive from completing the new challenges. These are special crafting materials for special items that provide unique features previously unavailable, or that are currently only available to donors. There are currently two gadgets available which can be viewed using /gadgets, but more will be added in time.

We hope you will enjoy the new experience and as always if you encounter any issues or would like to leave any feedback, you can submit a Support Ticket or post on our forum.
