    With the US and China both getting new leaders this week the world is changing a lot but we can't let them have all the action so we are proud to announce the launch of the official Feed The Beast launcher and modpack!

    The launch will be on the 10th of November 2012 (That’s Saturday) at 7pm GMT (11am PST with the stream starting an hour before) the launch will be streamed at http://www.twitch.tv/slowpoke101 with lots of special guests live on stream so be sure to follow to make sure you don’t miss that!

    We would like to stress that whilst the launcher is now at a standard that we are comfortable launching it. The mod packs that will be distributed with the initial release are interim packs only. As new mods are updated and released to the public these mods will be intergrated into the packs and available to download as soon as is possible. We could have continued to wait, but honestly when loking forwards it could easily have been another month before everything was ready for a complete release of everything. This was a situation that just was not acceptable. It should also be noted that for now, we are only supporting vanilla servers until a viable system for server plugins becomes available.

    The following is a list of some of the mods in the initial release of the modpack we understand that many of your favourite mods may be missing but don’t worry there will be frequent updates as they update to 1.4 and beyond!

    Mod List

    Minecraft Forge
    Chickenbones Core
    Chickenbones NEI
    Rei's Minimap
    Advanced Machines
    Buildcraft 3
    Computer Craft
    Ender Storage
    Extra Bees
    ExtraBiomes XL
    Factorization
    Forestry
    ForgeIRC
    Gregtech
    Industrial Craft 2
    Inventory Tweaks
    Iron Chests
    Advanced Solar Panels
    GraviSuite
    Modular Forcefield System
    Mystcraft
    Obsidian Pressure Plates
    Portal Gun
    Railcraft
    Steves Carts

    We hope that you have lots of fun playing the mod pack and everything else feed the beast has to offer and we hope to see you at the launch!

    As much as i'm excited for the release, for me it feels like it's not truly released without redpower. The reason it wasn't released until now was because of redpower, and not including it (for me) means that this is just another beta version.

    Captainnana, will the texturepack support tabs on the launcher work in the opening of the pack. As i organise the Sphax addon for this it would kind of be handy to know if i need to have a working pack for saturday. :)

    Will we have a standard blockID config, now that the mod pack will be released? I'd hate to reset my world again!

    tbh, agreed. redpower is the glue that binds the tech mods. looking at the play on forgecraft, nearly all of the builds rely on it, without it ftb is not complete...

    So pretty much the same pack as we have now? That's a bit disappointing. What major changes to the launcher can we expect?

    what happened to portal gun mod why was it removed ?

    Portal Gun was in the modpack during an earlier beta version but was removed due to bugs. It is hopefully being fixed and will be in an update.
