TECHNIC API: http://api.technicpack.net/modpack/designtech


Hey guys, Welsknight here, and I'm very proud to announce the public release of DesignTech, my custom modpack that I have been working on for about 3 or 4 months! DesignTech is a kitchen-sink pack with a heavy focus on decorative blocks, design, and survival building, with enough tech that you will be able to focus on building instead of grinding for resources. This modpack is accompanied by a Youtube Let's Play series, which you will find linked below. I hope you try it out and enjoy it!

Long Description

DesignTech is a kitchen-sink modpack in which the primary focus is building. If you are looking for a challenging pack, a pack with a storyline, or a pack that will kill you, then you have come to the wrong place. However, if you are looking for a pack that you can kick back, relax, and build super-detailed structures both small and large with a vast array of tools and materials at your disposal, then this might just be the pack for you. DesignTech aims to provide a balanced mix of both familiar and under-appreciated mods.

This is not a modpack that was hastily thrown together. Hours have been spent in the configs and in MineTweaker. In addition, every mod within the pack was selected for some reason, whether it be to provide additional materials, textures, and tools for you to build with, or to provide options for automation and quality-of-life improvements so that you can spend more time building and less time grinding. This modpack has been in development for roughly 3-4 months, and I'm quite proud of it (admittedly, I'm a bit biased). I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I do.

This pack contains Fastcraft, by Player, enabled by default. Fastcraft enhances Minecraft with increased performance. Bug reports being made directly to Mod Authors should state Fastcraft is enabled.

All mods are their latest versions as of June 30th, 2015.

Please let me know if you run into any bugs. This is the first public release, and despite my best efforts to extensively playtest, I'm sure there are a few of them.
