Problems making my first modpack

Recommended Posts

Ok well hello to whoever comes along to help,

My name is SeanBod and I'm just an average college student and streamer. I am brand new to the scene of modpack making and I'm coming a cross with some problems...of course that's why I decided to make this post to see if someone could guide me in the right direction. So I don't know much more than what I have researched and online or have watched on youtube. Here is the set up of the mod folder which everyone says to set up (https://gyazo.com/a4a748524411b4be6fe3aab09a1cc85c) it has the bin folder with my selected 1.7.10 forge universal file renamed as modpack. The mods folder has all the mods that I got downloaded from (http://mod-minecraft.net/) this website. Most files are in executable jar files and some are in winrar zip archive files as seen in this picture (https://gyazo.com/80d606298662a0b95fdbcf1bc156bab6). My first thought is I can't have winrar zip archive files in there or it would be messed up, but maybe you can answer that. Then my next thing is no one ever does more then not enough items in there actual videos.

So do I need to add each mod one at a time and get the config files or is the config files supposed to be empty until that person launches the modpack?

Also I am using media fire as my direct download because dropbox doesn't have a free share file, and copy is going down in May. I have also changed the url a couple of times to quote on quote fix it so it is a direct link for download.

And then the other question is after I zip the entire modpack am I just uploading the zipped file?

Because that is what I have done, I uploaded the entire zip file which included zipping the bin, config, and modpack all at once. Or am I just missing something?

Also something to keep in mind this is just some of the mods that I'm looking to put into my pack, this is just the first 43. Also that there are some 1.7.2 mods in there but some people have said that they would or could work fine with the 1.7.10 modpack that I'm making. And I also have attached this picture of all details on mods (https://gyazo.com/d13c4e58f30d29605caeda68a3542c39) for those who would like to take a look at it if it does help with seeing file types and size. Thank you for your time for reading this and taking your time to answer if you do have any tips or solutions for me.

I don't trust that website as a source for getting mods. You should go to each mod author's site or curse link and get the most up-to-date trusted jar files. That site is sketchy. Can't really help with much else until that step is taken. As for 1.7.2 mods working in 1.7.10, I have my doubts. 

The config files are generated upon the first successful launch of the pack. Then you can go back in and tweak. 

I use free dropbox and it works fine.

To add to AetherPirate's excellent advice, except in very rare cases you should be looking in three locations for your mods:

  • The author's website or source code repository
  • The MinecraftForum post for the mod
  • CurseForge

If you are using any other source for your mods you are likely to get outdated, misnamed, and possibly malicious mods. This page is a great place to start looking for your mods.

      Hello, so today i got a new laptop and installed mc launcher on it and wanted to install some modpacks. When i clicked the modpacks section there was no info about any modpack as you can see in the picture I attached, nothing was happening if I was trying to install any of the modpacks. I tried searching for other modpacks but nothing as well. I hope there is a fix to this. Thanks!

      A few days ago I downloaded Minecraft Java Edition in order to to play with Shivaxi RlCraft, with my friends.  I have been unable to launch RlCraft for this entire time, and have tried waiting up to 20 minutes each time.  I currently have 64-bit Java downloaded and 3.5 GB allotted.  I am not sure what else I can do to make this work, and I would love to know that I didn't waste $27 on this process.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks!

      I am very new to this platform, I got it today, so 
      Version: 4.534
      This is definitely a launcher problem. I sort of downloaded 4 versions of technic, which was probably my first mistake and sounds stupid, but here I am anyway. I opened up the first one I installed, and it was offline. It gets to the point where it says "Querying update stream 0%", stops there for a while, then opens the launcher. Upon opening, it says Discover is unavailable, news is a black screen, and it won't let me open modpacks on the launcher. I've read through like at least 8 different other columns on this help trying:
      -Uninstalling and reinstalling Technic.
      -Turning off my firewall for 10 minutes and restarting technic.
      -Using a VPN to install and boot up technic.
      -Running as administrator.
      -Restarting my computer/ Turning off my computer, waiting for 10 seconds, then turning back on.
      -Turning on beta streaming mode
      -A combination of any of these.
      My logs are really long, and I don't know where specifically I should be looking, so I can produce my logs if needed.
      I get this error every single time, and I just don't understand why. I've been searching through all the other posts about why this is happening, but nothing has worked. I had installed technic on a different computer a while ago that also ran windows 10, but now technic refuses to work.
