Currently in testing/initial release phase. Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Hello and Welcome to True Grit my first modpack which is built for minecraft 1.7.10
First and foremost this modpack has some memory requirements. Try to set your ram allocation as high as possible for best framerate, but 1 or 2 gb should be enough to run the pack! (I run minecraft with 12gb dedicated and every modpack runs like butter, let me know how this runs for you if you run less ram!)
This is a medium weight modpack aka not crazy large there are currently 102 mods according to Forge.
I started with the idea of making a modpack for a friend and myself to play with that revolved around a couple core tech mods. These are Mekanism and Thermal Expansion 3 (Resonate Induction would be here as well, but it currently has some crashing issues which is very sad since it looks amazing).
I then decided to add some fun exploration content to make a of hybrid hack n slash with the minetech mods. To do this I added in ruins, infernal mobs, dungeons pack, hardcore ender expansion, and twilight forest.
To make travel easier I added in some fun mods like ropes+, and telepads. While Minecraft has good travel already with horses these two mods can create great amount of fun and utility. For example with Ropes+ you could create a zip line through the jungle or over that pesky valley right next to your house, or create a temporary rope ladder by tossing a grappling hook.
All in all I think this pack should be a lighter weight successor to popular mod packs like Tekkit/Hexxit or Ultra Modded Survival patch 1.4.6c.
Since this modpack contains a lot of mods which are still in flux, there is higher than average potential of there being bugs. That being said, I think it still runs fine, but you occasionally get some messed up world gen & freezing while the world generates. Mods I shall be adding in the future once they get properly fixed/completed will be:
EE3 (doesn't have working Minium stone last I checked)
Resonate Induction (has a few missing textures that cause crashing)
Ars Magica (alpha build & unstable)
Thermal Ducts (Thermal Expansions Ducts)
Mystcraft (closed alpha/beta phase currently) Mods Currently Included in this modpack are:
Armor status Hud
Hardcore Ender Expansion
Wireless Redstone Chicken Bones edition

*I am open to suggestions here, but am mainly looking for a good RPG mod, or creatures mod to help diversify the enemies*
Amplified Terrain would be amazing for ziplines
