Folkhack's Modpack

Install & Configure

Download ATLauncher launcher and install modpack »

To use the modpack we use a lightweight launcher called ATLauncher. It has Windows, OSX, and Linux support.

Installing ATLauncher & Modpack:
  • Download, install, and launch ATLauncher
  • Click "Accounts" on the right on ATLauncher
  • Click "Login with Microsoft" and login with the launched browser
  • Download the zip file or copy the URL of the modpack
  • Click "Instances" on the right of ATLauncher
  • Click "Import" and enter file or URL of modpack .zip

Configure Modpack to Taste:

These are optional steps to configure your modpack to taste. Out-of-box the modpack is optimized for performance, compatibility, and vanilla gameplay with QOL improvements.

    • FOV to preference
    • Music disabled

  • Mods:
    • Distant Horizons mod enabled + configured in Mod Menu (disabled by default)

Known Issues

Bugs/quirks with modpack content »
  • Misc. Oddities:

    • Healthbars show by default on every restart (Neat plugin). Hitting F12 will disable them. Decided to keep them on due to it being an unobtrusive UI benefit that is easy to turn off. Issue: 137

  • Missing/Disabled Content:

    • Graphics Mods:

      Any graphics-intensive mod has been disabled by default (listed below). This is because the modpack is designed to ship in a very optimized state for lower-end computers. Mods included in this: graphics-inducing resource packs, Distant Horizons, Iris Shaders, and shaderpacks.

    • World Editing:

      Due to these mods causing major compatibility issues they are in a disabled-by-default state. To get these working, disable any shader mods (Iris) as well as any Meteor mods (Meteor Client, Meteor Rejects). Mods included in this: Axiom, Carpet, and WorldEdit.

    • Dynamic FPS:

      This is a mod that dials the FPS/volume down when the game is running in the background. This is awesome for automation players, but may not have a usecase for normal users.

    • Iris Shaders:

      Iris Shaders cause issue with Meteor Client when ESP is enabled - shows floating items in air. It is recommended to only enable Iris + shaders on an as-needed basis (screenshots, etc) if using with Meteor - ensure to set the shader enable/disable key to K in keybinding controls. Otherwise, disable Meteor mods. Issues: 3967, 3900, 3731, 1259.

    • alto-clef (MarvionKirito fork):
      No 1.20 version exists so currently not included in the modpack. Will be included once 1.20 support drops (currently only 1.19.4). If you need to use alto-clef it is recommended to join the server with a legacy 1.19.4 client. alto-clef MarvionKirito fork. There are additional forks of alto-clef that exist with 1.20 compatibility but those are currently being tested for inclusion in the modpack.
