    I have been trying to find anywhere there is a post or information on feed the beast support up to 1.6.4 and possibly using Voltz (or something along those lines). So far all the searching has lead me to nothing that would give me an answer, so I thought I ask here to get some information on the case.

    As far as I know, there's been no official announcement about official FTB 1.6.x packs yet, but word on the streets is "Soon™".

    well, slowpoke had the intention of not releasing a 1.6 pack and instead move straight onto 1.7, but he hasn't been saying that anymore recently and there are words of new packs being worked on so...

    I will keep my eye out for the newest update. I am liking some of the items in Voltz. Thanks for the info.

    I recommend ATLauncher if you want 1.6.4 now.

    Have there been any posts regarding the progress of the new launcher recently? I have not heard anything. With Ars Magica 2 coming out very soon I think that Direwolf20 will be ready to release a 1.6 pack when the launcher is ready.

    ATLauncher 3.0 works with 1.6 packs, of which I would reccomend Resonant Rise.

    I can wait as long as it takes for the new launcher but it is the lack of information that is a shame...but Herby to the rescue...lol. Here is a conversiation I had with a staff member.

    As you can see I do not think they care if we (the customers) get information or not because the expect us to look all over the web for news updates when it would make more since to make the customers come here for the news updates not to websites like poop...oops I mean puu. I do not have time to look at every gaming website like gamrmag just in case FTB whats to inform us of the news there.

    I think FTB and DW20 are kinda waiting on each other before they release so that when the launcher is ready then the pack will be ready. Without news though all we can do is hope that the coding for everything goes as smooth for the programmers.

    There will be no FTB packs for 1.6 until the new launcher is released, due to changes in the way mods are installed. Also, IIRC during Slow's stream a couple days ago there will be Unleashed for 1.6. They are also waiting on a few mods to update.

    Oh, thanks - I've been trying to figure out a way of playing Resonant Rise for a while now, and just gave up after my Googling wasn't providing any results - every source basically just said "It's not ready yet" or "private testing only" or similar.

    Glad to see it's finally been released! I've been needing my 1.6.x Tech mod fix. :p

    It's been released for months.

    Disregarding the launcher updates (I think the new look is really cool),

    I am curious as to why an official MC 1.x update isn't enough to warrant an official statement(like in news and all) on whether or not FTB is planning a version for that specific MC version.
    From past experience it would seem that while time is taking for config editors to configure a config, and modpack managers to decide what mods end up in a pack, this has never quite been a reason to not update the "people" on what's what in FTB packs.
    Now I'm not asking or demanding updates from the FTB team concerning 1.6, nor am I wondering why there has not been a 1.6 pack, I'm merely conveying ideas about how the team could go about informing their rather large user base about how relevant they consider a new Minecraft release vs an entire mod pack built for it no questions asked.

    sadly RR is always too laggy for me, even after trying to mess with permgen and such :(

    I have tried to play RR. some of the mods i like, some i don't, that is just a matter of taste, but the thing that get's me every time i have tired it is the horrible lag i get from time to time. i suspect TC4... but there are just too many mods to figure out in a short timeframe. I'm on the verge of making my own modset tbh. i suspect it might be a faster way to get into 1.6.4 when all you really want is a particular set of mods you use often.
    RR for me, feels a bit bloated with the sheer number of mod's added. but hey. i feel that even unleashed seems a tad bloated at times. there are several mods in unleashed i just never really use.

    Yeah, I tried it and HOLY WOW it was laggy.. I eventually just gave up and pick-n-chose my favourite mods out of the available to make my own little bundle. Fixed the lag issues, and lots of the mods I would never have used aren't there anymore! (As much as I like mods like Railcraft and Steve's Carts.. I never find myself using them :<)

    I'm surprised it was laggy considering this PC runs Sonic Ether's Shaders on Ultra / Far / Fancy at 60+ FPS.

    I ended up doing that, but the modlist I put together right now is just mostly on the magic side. I'd love to be able to put together a pack like Unleashed myself, but it's quite hard to get everything working together, have everything balanced and ontop of that, have everything running smooth.

    but yea, RR is quite... packed. it'd be nice if RR could have a subpack for testing purposes and trying out new mods instead of having just 1 pack that changes so much.
    people can always say to just stick to an older version, but we've got to get our hands on new shinies!

    I used to do it myself. man is it a lot of work, not only that. whenever there are updates you got to do it all over again. it's kinda... frustrating.. after a while, but once you got everything set up like you want. damn is it a lot of fun. and by all means. a lot more balanced than most large packs ever gets.

    I'm usually kind of stuck when deciding I want to play the game easy, hard, challenging or most efficient, so that always makes me not able to make a decision when it comes to configurations xD
