Masters of Minecraft Modpack "Beta test/refinement Group" Recruitment


Recommended Posts

[this is basically a copy and paste from the minecraft forums where I first asked. since I made it on this platform, figured I'd ask around on this platform's forums aswell.]


Hey there everyone, allow me to introduce a modpack that I've worked on on and off since late may till now (with a month or so in the middle of not much).


Back then 1.6.4 was probably the in thing now, probably not so much, but packs are still trickling along while some get updated others are still here in 1.6.4 so I figured why not. I'm getting to the point where I feel the pack is good enough that I might release it. It started as a private project for friends and such but as it got bigger (and more evil) I decided I'd release it eventually since what was originally meant to be made for a private server never came to fruition as usual so I still wanted to make something of this since it was different to my other packs and probably the majority of other packs out there atleast. (since if xcompwiz figured I had enough novel content to allow mystcraft into it, I figured it was good for something, despite myself already knowing that)

Masters of Minecraft has a story to it, unlike packs which are made for certain themes, mine is made also with this piece of lore in mind.

[begin Story]
(insert your selection of "calm setting gone to bad" story telling music here ;))

Within the endless void of the different minecraft dimensions being made and destroyed one of the void gods created a world.

This world initially named "Haven" would be a dimension where weary crafters from the other deadlier dimensions, be it ultra challenging situations or modpacks could come to to rest and have fun and unwind. As such, the worlds created in the pattern of Haven had almost a ludicrous abundance of resources meant to cater to the needs of the coming adventurers.

Unfortunately between the dimensions there are other outside forces at work. One such force was the unfortunate arrival of a travelling ascended band of mobs known as "The Masters". These mobs, banded together after fleeing worlds slated for divine destruction (deletion or having been forgotten) eventually found their way to the dimension cluster (worlds created from similar resources bound together) of Haven. Finding the inhabitants unaware as they mined lush resources and played without a care they attacked.

Wiping out the lazy minecraftians was an easy task for these hardy mobs and their friends and soon they had control over the dimensions core where they took root and hence colonized the dimension which is now under their control... A heaven now turned hell.

Between this time the player was meant to reincarnate in Haven for their shot as rest and recreation, but they were headed on a one way trip to disaster. Until they were found by another unknown entity, a somewhat almighty white cloaked yet minecraftian figure who made his home between the dimensions in the void who had been watching the problems down in haven unfold. Grabbing the player as he/she floated by he gives them an enchanted book (yes! the hardcore questing mode book) and sends the player on their way to haven where once awake in a newly spawned branch of the dimension cluster he would inform them of what is happening and they would have to work hard to attempt to either fix the problems of haven or take advantage of them...

[end story]

Anyway, so my modpack's theme is a mixed one. It's a fun pack, made for easily getting resources, but this is covered by a story of survival from highly overpowered special mobs (that I made using mob properties) and the need to take back control of the world. It has a fair balance of standard issue technology and magic and then things to improve combat. It also has quests that can be done in an open world setting. Most of all I made the pack to be hard, but not limiting, meaning that the player can quickly overcome, but can also quickly get screwed from something as random as an army of overpowered zombies falling on your head or being self one shotted from damage return by infernal mobs (thanks again, atomicstryker. :V). Because of the inclusion of hardcore questing mode it also has a 3 lives hardcore mode by default and lots of exploration that can be done thanks to ruins, battletowers, chocolate quest/better dungeons, deadly worlds, twilight forest and dimension doors dungeons all put on top of the well known sights of biomes o plenty.

What I hope for is that some people will help me test and further refine this modpack with me for a little while, since it's at the point where I don't think I can add much more without it hitting critical mass and I just want to further refine and add to whats already there with these highly customizable mods. And of course test features and stuff with some people who'd be willing to openly play and discuss the pack with me on skype or something similar in a group or something.

thank you very much! and I'm surprised too. but I have a feeling it being 1.6.4 and it not being open and asking like this might have an effect on that, but I was hopeful someone would come along so thanks. :D do you have a skype or something like steam I can add you to to send the private link and stuff to you?
