Hmm. Trying to make a pack with that many huge mods (especially pixelmon) as your first pack is going to be an exercise in frustration.

  • It will be so large that iteratively testing the pack will take a very long time. Each time you have to start the pack during testing it will take a long time to start.
  • You have included a large number of what I would call "cornerstone" mods. These are mods you would build a whole pack around. Mods like Mekanism, IC2, GalactiCraft, Pixelmon, ThaumCraft and AM2 just to name a few. While it is possible to do that it will make balancing things much more difficult, especially if you include things like RotaryCraft or GregTech which are designed to be the "final say" in crafting and power.
  • A pack of this size is going to be a labor of love. Expect to spend many tens of hours getting things working.

Yea looking at the mods there is a ton of them and pixelmon is with a different modpack not the one im thinking of making. Im probably going to remove either greg tech and/or rotarycraft, and possibly Ars Magica 2 as it can change the balance quite a bit with its healing which can make the rewards you get in blood magic easy, this also goes with Botania too, so i might remove that too, but it isnt all about its healing and such. Any ideas of mods I should remove, add for better balance and such?

The balance comes in a few flavors.

  • Balancing ore generation between mods. How much resources does each mod require? How much generation should happen so that a player could use all the mods that consume a particular ore without making it overly abundant if they choose to focus on one mod. Which type of ore should spawn (copper from four mods, etc.)? Where should it spawn?
  • Balancing power generation and consumption. How much loss should happen when converting? How do blocks from different mods provide shortcuts for the tech trees of other mods?
  • Not really a balance issue, but just configuring Immibis and Forge microblocks along with TreeCapitator can take hours. Fun stuff.

Hmm even figuring out what mods to remove can be frustrating, either way ill try to make one still and continue the regular topic, but i just got an idea for a modpack that isnt much of a game changing mod, rather that it enhances vanilla minecraft, so something like life in the woods, i might make 2 modpacks; one that allows you to still play on servers and one that is meant for singleplayer really, but I haven't joined a server with mods in a while so maybe it changed to allow you to join even if you have mods on. Some basic mods im thinking of adding are:

Shaders

Biomes o' Plenty

Inventory Tweaks

This might break the balance or the enhanced vanilla minecraft theme but tinkers construct? Or maybe another weapon adding mod

Better grass & leaves

Dynamic lighting

Something that adds more food

Bibliocraft?

Nei

Backpacks

and some other things

Got any other cool mods i could add? Or should i just stick to the enhanced minecraft and add things that really dont add items just aesthetic effects?

      So i've had this server from the looks for quite some years and it ran fine. But now when I try to play it, it starts up normally, then going to the world to boot it up, then BAM! It closes with "server closed", then just crashes just like that and throws me this error. I tried it with and without Optifine, yet it still throws the same complaint at me. I tried to remove any persky mods that was causing the problem, but nothing. I even updated every mod that was outdated using a mod that detects whats outdated and whatnot, yet it still did the same crash to me. Anything to do? And yes, I know its talking about Optifine not being compatible, but I don't know why it still crashes even with it removed. I've explained this all over and people just can't help. If nobody can help out on this, forget it, i'll just make a whole new thing and scrap this.
       
      Edit: I've already fixed it myself, thanks for the help.

      My friend recently made a server on the modpack: Pixelmon Reforged. The server was pretty laggy, and I was having some problems rejoining, so I decided to go to task manager and force it to close, but after doing that, the modpack decided not to cooperate, and now it won't open at all. Other modpacks will open, sure, but when I click "play" on the modpack, it loads very quickly and then nothing happens. I can click play again, same thing. I tried deleting the pack and installing it again. Same thing. Please help?
