    posted a message on How to install and play a Minecraft Modpack

    Step 1:  Goto the http://www.feed-the-beast.com website and click on Download Now and install


    Step 2: Once you installed the Twitch app, login and then click on Mods


    Step 3: Click the Minecraft logo


    Step 4: Click on Browse Modpacks to access the list of modpacks. You can also search the name of the modpack you want to download.


    Step 5: Click download, wait for it to install then click play

    Step 6: Once the Minecraft launcher popups DO NOT PRESS PLAY, click Launch Options then click on FTB Infinity Evolved.


    Step 7: We want to allocate more RAM otherwise the game will crash. Highlight this area and change it to minimum 4GB or even as high as 8GB.

    Make sure it is: -Xmx#GB and the # is the RAM size. This example I allocated 6GB


    Step 8: Click the Minecraft name, then click Play.


    Step 9: The loading part should take less than 5 minutes. Be Patient!


    Step 10: When you're creating your world for the 1st time. I recommend changing the World Type to "Biomes O' Plenty". This unlocks a lot more scenic biomes. 


    Step 11: Once you load up the world, click on the 4th item in your inventory slot. This is the quest guide book, it will direct you on what items/blocks you need to craft and give you rewards!

     

     Step 12: Have fun! Here are some youtube series I recommend watching

    Devil Advocate: Why SHOULDN'T you play Minecraft?

    - No save/reload. If your traveling on top of a mountain and fall off, you will instantly die and get teleported back to spawn. If a Creeper blows up your chest anything caught in the explosion is gone. If you're walking around the nether (Hell dimension) trying to kill a Ghast and they knock you to the lava, all your inventory and equipment will burn.
    - Some people can't get used to the "lego" box world. It took me some time to get used to.
    - If you do play Minecraft multiplayer PVP big server on stream, you will generate the biggest stream sniper party out of all the games you've played. If you mute your voice, people will mistake this stream as a Forsen stream.
    - Backseating. This comment is for me, you've been great with the constant backseat in borderlands. I will just get very angry at super expert modpack/minecraft masters. The "no you should place that block here" or "use this mod instead" when the general goal/objective can be achieved many ways.
    - The minecraft modpack takes a minimum 4 minutes no matter how expensive your PC is.
    - Being overwhelm at the many crossroads of what to do! Especially with MC Mod. Fortunately, I have suggested modpacks that includes a quest book that gives you incentives to progress through specific mods.
    - Lack of NPC and voice dialogues and story can make it seem a bit bland and lonely. Fortunately, one modpack I've recommend is for Adventure/Exploration.

    How to download/install/play Modpack

    1. Download the twitch app and click on Mods. https://app.twitch.tv/download




    2. Click Minecraft



    3. Click on "Browse All Modpacks" then type "roguelike or Enigmatica or Sky Factory" then on install button located on the modpack icon. Installing should only take 3 minutes. Once thats done, the install button will turn into a play button. click it.



    4. Once the launcher popup, you want to change how much ram your computer will run it. My computer is an old grandma 2012 gaming computer so I have to make sure it gives at least 6GB while launching modpacks. Do this too! Click on Launch Options and click on RogueLike adventures.





    5. Here, we want to change the JVM arguments. Yours may look different. The general idea is to highlight the same area I highlighted, and then simply type: 6GB.








    6. Now, click on the Minecraft logo or press X, then click on the green play button on the button. The loading screen should appear (picture below). This will take at least 2 minutes to load.

    7. Congratulations it has loaded! Goto Multiplayer and type in the server IP found in your control panel.


    8. Finally, please goto  http://twitch.tv/quengambit and click that follow button :). Thank you <3

    Minecraft Feed The beast

    Feed the beast aka FTB is the name of the minecraft community that takes popular mods and puts them together for you in a 1-click installation process. It is now managed by twitch!
    This is where the majority of the content of the minecraft streams will come from. In this path, you will be exposed to new blocks/machines/items/tools/weapons/resources/recipes. Each mod provides their own progression and some mods are synergized to work together! That website holds a lot of modpacks. The following below is my recommended modpacks.







    Modpack: Enigmatica 2. PLAY THIS ONE FIRST An all-in-one modpack filled with tons mods and a guidebook. It has everything from Industrial mods, magic mods, farming mods, storage and sorting, futuristic, scary diablo mods, dragon mods. This modpack makes playing satisfactory/Subnautica/Forest look like a 5 minute demo! Get ready to be backseated by chat and look at gamepedia/youtube.

    Modpack: Roguelike Adventures and Dungeons: This modpack is has less to do with being Satisfactory and more of walking simulator/spam right-click hack slash.  This modpack includes more weapons/armor and other worlds to explore.  xQc and moxy played this the scuffed way - by playing 50% of the mods individually.


    Modpack: Sky Factory 3:
    Skyblock style minecraft is a multiplayer custom game mode where individual players start in the sky on a 1 block island with a tree. Using clever parkour and hording strategies, players are to create a cobble generator to create the infinite resource to create their floating platform. In this modpack, you are spawned in a larger island. Instead of gathering resource from the caves and mountains that don't exist anymore, players must use create sieves stations where you throw cobble through it which will give you nuggets of random resources. Skyblock style modpack forces players to carefully optmize their grinding work.

    Minecraft Hypixel

    Minecraft Hypixel is the name of a massive multiplayer server that houses many PVP oriented mini-games.
    - On the main Minecraft menu, click Multiplayer, click add server, type any name, and then put this on the IP address: mc.hypixel.net
    - Simply right click the compass then click the mini-game you want. You can exit anytime and go back to the lobby.

    This is a list of all the fun mini-games they have:


    Here are my favorite games:

    Bedwars The arena is a bunch of floating sky islands. You and your teammates spawn in an island with 1 bed. Your goal is to quickly gather resources and build bridge to enemy islands and destroy their bed. Destroying a team bed disable their ability to respawn. Last team standing wins. Your main island will constantly drop resources to buy basic items. These sky island arenas are designed to nerf turtling and force expansion because the valuable resources are in the middle neutral islands.




    SkyWars: like bedwars but FFA


    Murder Mystery: Like a phantom mode in Starcraft. You are assigned a role and if your the murderer, you have to go around killing others without being caught.


    Build Battle: players are confined to a large private area where they have few minutes to build a giant item thats voted in the beginning in the match. Afterwards, the game will move to each area showcasing everyone's fast builds and you as a player gets to vote which is a good build. The player with the most high rated votes wins.

    Minecraft setup/installation
    - You will need to create an account with Mojang to purchase minecraft: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/store/ . Note: The other version from the Microsoft store will not be compatible with the additional content you'll be playing.
    - I've had inconsistencies with game capture/video capture with minecraft. I suggest right-clicking Obs and click Run as Administrator.

    Minecraft Tutorial Checklist
    Vanilla Minecraft is the stepping stone of the real fun on stream. With this checklist, you will be able to have enough basics to move onto Minecraft Multiplayer (Hypixel) and Minecraft Feed the Beast.
    - Create Crafting table, this is what you use to create 99% of your items.
    - Build stone tools
    - the bar right of your hearts is your hunger bar, when that drains, then your hearts will slowly drain. You will have to explore and kill animals or gather fruits to replenish hunger. Later on, you can build a Hoe tool to till soil and plant seeds you've gathered to grow food.
    - At night mobs will spawn. To survive the 1st few nights you can dig yourself a hole and cover it and wait until night. If your fast enough, you can surround yourself with dirt or cobble or make it large enough to move around in it.
    - Once its day time, most mobs will catch on fire and die, allowing safe travel on the surface.
    - Night is not why mobs spawn, rather they will spawn in areas with lack of light. Your short term goal is to build a bunch of torches and place them all around your play area so that mobs won't spawn at night.
    - explore caves or dig staircase going down. Surface level is around 60 blocks high. below that are random cave tunnels and mineshafts and ravines and lava pits. Practice holding crouch and standing at the edge of a block, this will allow you to prevent yourself from falling off a block. This is also used to create a 1 block bridge while slowly moving/crouching.
    - You will eventually see stone blocks with dots on them - yellow, peach, teal, red, blue. These are essential resources. Some of them you can put them inside the furnace (top spot) and use charcoal or wood on bottom slot to "smelt" it into an ingot.

     
    (Note: image greatly CGI'd than actual product)

    After playing Minecraft Vanilla, you will have enough  skils to move onto Minecraft Hypixel or Feed The Beast.

    Introduction

    Hi A_Seagull!
    In this report, I would like to share you some information and convince you to play Minecraft on stream.
    Minecraft is not just easy survival game / 3D MSpaint, it has a ton of stream content!

    Why should you play Minecraft on stream?
    - Minecraft is popular enough to draw the attention to a lot of viewers, even after it being a decade old game.
    - Vanilla minecraft is a fun casual survival game. Think of it as playing 1 hour of Subnautica/Rust/The Forest. Since you've mastered and enjoyed those games, you will certainly enjoy Minecraft too!
    - Minecraft has enough unique content that separates itself from other survival games.
    - We will avoid building projects. Its only entertaining to see the finish projects. Not fun on stream.
    - We will focus your minecraft gameplay on content that provides strategy, progression and development.

     

    We will divide the Minecraft content into three sections:


    Minecraft Vanilla - Single player normal
    Minecraft Hypixel - Multiplayer server
    Minecraft Feed the Beast - Single player mods

    posted a message on How to setup a Minecraft Modpack server.

    Hey Calvin! Here is how to setup a Minecraft Modpack Multiplayer server!

    Step 1:
    Buy the Minecraft java version here: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/store/

     

    Step 2: Time to purchase a monthly server service. I recommend https://www.creeperhost.net/

    In the creeperhost website,  click the "order" green button on the on the picture that says "Modded Minecraft".




    Step 4: Entered any name for your server (type anything, its just a label). Next, dragged the green bar to the very right until it says "custom players". This will unlock a hidden button on the right. Click this hidden button called "Select Package."


    Step 5: Now choose my server hardware. I would recommend minimum of 6GB for 4 people.
    Note: For comparison, if you're setting up a vanilla server, a minimum of 1GB for 4 people is enough.

     

     

    Step 6: Next, find the modpack you want them to install. You can check out the list of modpacks here on a separate tab: https://minecraft.curseforge.com/modpacks. In this example, I am going to install a modpack called Roguelike Adventure. It is an adventure/exploring modpack. Here, I type the word "Roguelike" and it will give me a long list of versions. I chose the one on the very top of the results since that is the latest version (picture maybe outdated).





    Step 7: At the bottom of this website, fill out the form. This website takes credit card or paypal. 



    Step 8: After the payment, wait at least 15 minutes for the website to finish setting up your server.
    Then, login to this website: https://panel.creeper.host/login&nbsp;





     

    Step 9: This is the Control panel of the server. You want to click on "Create Instance" to start it up. It will ask you for name/label for it on your control panel, type anything. Once you hit okay, give it a few minutes to set up. The picture below took me 3 minutes to start it up. For the modded minecraft server, the initial startup load is probably going to be 10+ minutes. It may even crash. If that happens, click on the orange button on the top right to restart it. You may see a lot of errors in the console while its loading. This is normal. Finally, the IP address is the one below the name you gave it. For example my ip address is "QueenGambit.playat.ch"

     

     Step 10: Time to download and install modded minecraft for your computer.
