I'm very busy creating a modpack for myself. Since i don't own any rights about these mods i won't upload any of them.
You can google them up, if you like my collection.
Please don't suggest mods like Ice and Fire-Dragons or Lycanites mobs.
I had some fun testing them but let's be honest: they are painfull. I don't like Minecraft THAT hardcore.
Also i'm not a fan of technology mods. I stick to basic Redstone, that's confusing enough and never gets old.
Guess i just know what i don't want. Aside from that i need suggestions.
So far i have following clientside only as well as gamechanging mods gathered.
-Mo' Bends (cool spider animations but skeletons look dump)
-jei (Just enough Items)
-Battys Coordinates PLUS
-Soundfilters (for reverbhall in caves)
-Better Diving (I just use it to swim. It adds a lot of stuff, many fishes)
-Electroblobs Wizardry (I can't say much about it. I'm testing it rn)
-Chococraft (Adds Chocobos as mounts. Tall birds from Final Fantasy. I love this mod!)
-Biomes O Planty
The following list features mods that didn't make it into my collection.
Adds a very cool dimension, wich must be entered by a "Drift". Drifts appear random at night and spawn "Drifters",
hostile mobs wich try to abduct you, your animals and your villagers!
Sadly you can't use a bed in that dimension to set a spawnpoint. It's probably based on the nether dimension.
I excluded this mod because of that and a performence issue. When i fight against the hostile mobs from that dimension,
they start lagging around. I'm sure thats becouse of my pc.
A great mod! Works good with biomes o planty. I excluded this one becouse the cities appear to often,
even if i choose rarecities. It also works with Ice- and Fire- Dragons and Jurassicraft.
I haven't testet other "gamechangers". I highly recommand you to try this mod!
Again i have performance issues. Also the Dinosaurs seem to have weird hitboxes.
I had no fun with this mod.
At this point i don't know where this modpack should go. I like exploring the overworld. I don't like mining that much.
I have tested all 3 of them. Better Foliage sadly crashes my launcher. That might be becouse of my forge version, which i can't change bc of more important mods or simply bc my pc is that bad. I've made a test with only Better Foliage and Optifine so it's probably not bc of my modlist.
Recurrent Complex & Additional Structures...
OMG they are SO good!
I was flying around in creative too see how the world generates with biomes o plenty and these 2 mods and well...
They are added to the list! I don't want to play without them. ^^
If you want some aesthetics to play with, try out Mr. Crayfish's Furniture mod. He has a few machines in there (dishwasher and washing machine to repair tools and armor), but it's all centered around furniture...chairs, tables, drawers, counters, cabinets, etc. It's a bit more geared towards modern design, though.
Do you get peeved that there are no stairs/etc for a specific material? A mod like Blockcraftery gives you various shape blocks (stair, block, slab, trapdoor, etc) and lets you apply full-block textures to them. So, for example, if you thought glass stairs were a good idea you could create one of these stair blocks and put the glass texture on it (it doesn't work with connected textures, though).
Do you like creating your own things, like beds, chests, or even complex contraptions like doors? If so, Little Tiles is the mod for you. Like any custom/micro block mod there's a bit of a time sink involved but the way LT was created means a lot of the tedium is tamped down. The moving-parts portion of the mod allows you to model various things in a realistic fashion...for example, you know that desktop artpiece that has a line of ball bearings hanging off of wires that you can pull a bead on the end back and let it crash into the others to knock each other back and forth? You can actually MAKE that block and have it work in Little Tiles, though it would take a lot of work and tinkering to get right.
For exploration, you might try the Betweenlands mod. This mod is just plain gorgeous to look at (almost like shaders but without shaders), and it's robust enough that it's essentially a whole new line of Minecraft progression. It's definitely spooky as all get-out, but I've never really seen any other mod approach it in terms of quality and quantity of content.
