@The_Doctors_Life: You can use a simple web page I put together to get the metadata for an API URL. This can help diagnose things like a user not incrementing the pack version, or having the incorrect version of MC selected. It also provides a link to download the current pack: http://www.circlecraft.info/platform/

  • Your pack settings indicate a MC version of 1.7.9. This won't work and should be set to 1.7.10. (visible using the link I provided to The_Doctors_Life)
  • Your modpack archive is in RAR format. All archive files intended for use by the platform must be in ZIP format only. This includes both your pack archive and any mod ZIP files.
  • Forge for MC >= 1.6 does not use a coremods folder in any way. All mod files belong in or below the mods folder.
  • The 1.7.10 folder belongs in mods.
  • PowerCrystalsCore is for <= 1.6.4 and should not be in a 1.7.10 modpack.

It needs to be a zip file, or else technic can't unzip it. after you have changed it to a zip file update technic with your new url to download your pack.

I prefer to look directly at the json output, but I'll start using that, be easier.
