Question

Hey all, so i've recently created a new modpack and wanted to share it with the community. I'm having an issue getting the pack to install correctly. Whenever I download and install the pack it goes smoothly, the pack downloads  and shows that it installed. Thats great and dandy, but the pack didn't install correctly at all. I go to play the pack and vanilla minecraft loads up. I took a look at the directory folder for the modpack, and the Launcher unpacked the archive folder into the directory. So what it's doing is unpacking the zip like this /modpacks/Testmodpack/Testmodpack/bin...etc. Instead of unpacking the folder inside the directory it creates another folder within the modpacks directory that then contains the "bin" and "mods" folders which should be placed directly into the directory. I have tried packing and repacking the zip to see if that was the issue and I can't seem to get the launcher to unpack correctly. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! 

Hopefully the image below helps to explain what I mean. "TestPack" contains the "bin" and "mods" folders from the zip archive 

 

Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the Forums. I looked through all of them and couldn't find a better sub-forum (maybe i'm blind). Felt like this could be launcher related.

Well, I have seemed to have figured out a fix. In case you were wondering, there is now no way to make a modpack on Mac under the latest version of Mac OS (El Capitan). For what ever reason the os (regardless of the archiving program you use) does not pack the files correctly. Trust me i've tried 15+ different programs to no avail. The only way I could get the modpack to pack correctly is to pack it using winrar for PC on a virtual machine. Sorry to all you other mac users, but there is no other way to make a modpack unless you're using an older version of Mac OS.

      Hi,
      I have just followed a tutorial on how to set up a modpack, and I followed all of the steps, but when I run it it just runs vanilla. Here is the link to the pack. Any ideas?
      Thanks!

      I am using the portable version of the technic launcher on mac (on an sd card) and this morning I was playing lapito's galacticraft, closed it, then I reopened the technic launcher a few hours later, and it only showed the official technic modpacks, but even they weren't downloaded, I check the technique folder, all the modpacks are still there, and the saves too. I don't know what to do.
      help apreciated

      I wasn't going to have this modpack on Technic, but, I want to play with all the chosen mods on there just in case my friends want to join me at anytime.

      I've uploaded a different modpack before, personal like this one, and it worked out just fine. This one does have wayyy more mods so something different is definitely going on. Downloading the modpack is fine, it is hosted on Dropbox. However, when I try to 'play' the modpack, it loads a few things before Minecraft assets, then waits a bit, the Launcher disappears, and then the launcher reappears; meaning something crashed/is not loading right.
      Here is the crash log from Technic: { https://pastebin.com/rz39VrR3 }
      Any help would be appreciated. I tried to skim through the log myself, but it is definitely confusing for me.
      Sorry if this is in the wrong topic, or that something isn't right, I'm typing as fast as I can before I go to work (I'll be able to respond within 8-9 hours from now).
