The Purple Garden: A Garden of Glass Modpack



This modpack was designed for a Let's Play series for PurpleMentat and to go on his Patron server. It is focused on the new Botania skyblock option called Garden of Glass. It also has a lot of blocks that builders will love. And finally, it has Pam's Harvestcraft because... Barlock. ;)


This pack is no longer supported. Leaving it here for posterity. Please check out my other packs as there are many great 1.8.9 mods out there now and my new modpacks focus on those.


How to Install

You need to use the Curse Voice application which has support for Mac and Windows. It's located at

We are working on ways to easily install it on Linux. This will get updated when that happens. For now, check out this:


How to Play

So, are you lost on how to start playing this pack? Or maybe you need some refreshers? Go watch PurpleMentat's Let's Play of it. Here's a link to his playlist:


Server Admins

Please disable Baby Animals Model Swapper, ArmorStatusHUD, StatusEffectHUD and Default World Generator. Those are client side only mods. 

To spread the players to their own island, use the command Vazkii included with Garden of Glass: /botania-skyblock-spread 

It can be used in a command block like so:
