Simple as that. Creators of this abomination give zero information how to even get started, you are likely to die in the first 10 blocks of spawning in, because it always starts a new game, single or multiplayer, right at dusk. None of the controls work correctly, and there are more conflicts that cannot be corrected even you remapped every single one with unique combinations of keys. Attempted to contact creators about supplying more basic information for new players and server owners wanting to host it, and get an automated response that they "cannot be bothered at this time, as they are already working on a new project, and they will get back to you when they feel like it. "
Honestly, this makes Gregtech look simple and easy. At least he had the sense to add some basic wiki principles to his work.
SevTech ages is an amazing mod pack with well thought out progressions intuitively spaced out to provide a more long game style of play. I had no problems finding lots of info out there in the way of guides and let's play that where available if I became stuck on something. Let's not forget the quest progression which tells you what you need to accomplish in order to progress to even bigger and better things. If you were expecting to beat the mod in a day or a week, this was not the mod pack for you as I believe this pack was solely designed to create an extremely long gameplay before you even get close to the finish experience. You should give it a try now, its extremely stable and tons of fun. :D
TLDR: Play or don't play the modpack, no one if forcing you to play it. If you don't like it, quit the modpack and find another one to play and or play on your own and if you don't like it, don't play it.
There's a questbook that explains the basic progression. That invalidates one of your primary complaints.
Your other complaint is about controls not "working". 99% of optional button commands can be discarded until needed, as I and many other players do. Having broken controls is not the fault of the pack-maker, but of the mod-author. If you find a particular configurable button that is not working as intended, you should contact the mod-author with a bug report or manually update your modlist to a version that fixes the issue.
Your authoritarian stance on what CurseForge should and should not host is objectively wrong. This is not your platform to police, it is theirs. This content does not violate any of their policies, and CurseForge does not have minimum-quality rules.
Your reply is that of the typical useless neckbeard that stalks the forums in desperate search of the opportunity to make himself look good. You are the idiot here, obviously. The pack is objectively impossible to play without external help, like you so bravely claim to have done. Constantly reaching for info in the myriad internet trashcans (like this one, with idiotic tools like you replying with non-informative insults) decreases (in fact, takes away) the pleasure of gameplay, as one may not want to play the game by watching autistic hand-holding videos on youtube, but by actually playing the game. So that invalidates your first claim.
As for the second one, no, the questbook in the game is NOT a source of information, as it provides nothing about how to use the tools or what processes need to happen for a certain item to be obtained.
The OP may be salty, and so am I and every non-retarded fanboy trying to play this obscure shit. For the simple reason that it is flawed: it lacks the information necessary to play the game (no, when I play a game i don't want to watch others playing it on youtube, I want to play it myself).
So you deplorables are much more salty and sad, here.
Took you long enough to reply half year??? Srly??? And I'm not the salty one posting that it's the worst modpack ever. If you don't like it, go play some more Fortnite if it's not for you. It's just a matter of preference. Let me remind you that SevTech is one of the most guided modpacks ever, it it's the first popular modpack of it's kind. That's why it's so great. You're the autistic one if you're still playing Minecraft in your spare time and making forum posts complaining about stupid things that give no real feedback. This site isn't your school guidance counselor; you can't just complain about anything and expect to have your issues worked out. Even though constant complaining made some people rich on YouTube, doing the same on CurseForge will just get you shunned. So stop living in your parent's basement and get out into the real world and do something with your life.
Yo, king of the neckbeards. If you stopped your screeching for like half a second you'd realize that that's not even the guy that initially posted the criticism. Infact, that's the first post he made in this thread.
This modpack is interesting but it is far from the golden glorious gem you seem to want it to be. Its riddled with graphical glitches and as others said a criminally small amount of detail on how the progression works. Many things could be made clearer and less pedantic.
Now stop acting like a batshit crazy helicopter mom and face the fact that this modpack is mediocre at best
Ok ok ok, maybe I went a bit out. But remember, this is the first guided modpack of this scale. Yes, there's glitches, but that's Minecraft, and Forge, and some mods not being 100% compatible, and I personally haven't had any graphical glitches. Are you drivers out of date? Have you restarted your computer lately? Are you allocating enough RAM? (Just some common issues.) Also, saying that "Creators of this abomination give zero information how to even get started" is wrong, as you get the clearest path to start than most any other modpacks, like SkyBlock. Also, "None of the controls work correctly, and there are more conflicts that cannot be corrected even you remapped every single one with unique combinations of keys." Remind me how this is the modpack creator's fault? There's just a lot of mods with a lot of keybinds, and most people I've seen and I myself have gotten by just fine with not having every single one something different. Sometimes, using certain keybinds aren't even available until later in the game when others are rendered useless because you've gone on to big, better, faster things, allowing you to just ignore the old ones and put something else in it's place.
