Nightfall is coming. Prepare yourself. Inspired by super hostile maps, hardcore players bored with modded Minecraft, players that built all the machines and declared they had beaten a pack, endless forum arguments about tedium vs difficulty, and a healthy dose of my own particular brand of trollishness. Enjoy. Pack code: sleepless Click for Detailed list of Included Mods/Permissions For Hardcore Difficulty Players: This pack was mostly built with you in mind. While the difficulty is ramped up, the frustration and tedium of starting over is ramped down significantly. Powerful enemies need powerful tools and I have given you both. For Everyone Else: It's a tough pack even on Easy. Don't be afraid to die as I've added a few interesting little touches to help you recover your gear. I've also included some fun non-hardcore-ish stuff and decorative things if building is your thing. If you need help getting started, check out the tutorial spoilers below. For Server environments: A server download is now available on the launcher. Do take a look at the detailed list of included mods above, I note all the client-side/single player only mods and these are the only ones disabled. If you want to disable more, by all means. If you need cheat mode access in NEI for OPs, change the lockmode in the NEI.cfg from 1 to -1. A quick word on OceanCraft Spoiler This mod is a lot of fun and really adds a lot to ocean life in single player. However it currently does NOT work in a server environment due to a rendering issue that causes a crash on server startup. The mod author is aware of the problem and plans to address it in a subsequent release, so don't pester him about it. A quick word on Optifine Spoiler I did everything I could to get this pack as small and efficient as possible while still presenting the same general theme I wanted to present. That being said, if you do still want to add optifine, make sure you remove the noVoidFogNoDimming mod, as they directly conflict/crash and it would be redundant with optifine installed anyway. OptiFine_1.6.4_HD_C6 is reported to work with the pack. Recommended Additions Spoiler Mutant Creatures by thehippomaster21: Adds boss-like mobs that are pretty amazing. The ONLY reason this isn't in the pack is that I couldn't get permission to add it. If that changes at some point, it will be added to the pack. However, don't bother the mod dev about it, that's my job. By all means add this on your own and enjoy some epic battles. The map/radar/minimap of your choice. I realize Zan's/Voxelmap isn't everyone's favorite. Infernal Mobs by AtomicStryker: If you've somehow gotten through the toughest boss fights in this pack and come out of it wanting more, this is the extra dose of insane difficulty you're probably now looking for. This mod was a strong contender for inclusion, but I couldn't bring its difficulty down to the level where both my primary tester and myself thought it should be with respect to the rest of the pack. Credits/Thanks Spoiler OriginalxSyn: For being my primary tester, the reason for this pack ultimately coming into existence, streaming pack testing through about 20some iterations of the pack. Without this guy right here, there would be no pack. All the mod developers: Click through to their mod page and see what they have to say and who they have to thank. This pack comes to you because these guys were all awesome enough to make these mods and allow me to distribute them through the FTB Launcher for free. Mulletzorz and company: For spending far, far too much time late into the morning hours getting Sleepless Horrors working on a server and encouraging me to hang out in Teamspeak more. The FTB Team: For hosting the pack on the launcher. Watchfull11: For wrangling all these third party packs. Apologies to anyone else I've forgotten. Support Spoiler For everything in the pack, I will provide direct support. Some mod authors don't like dealing with cross mod interaction issues, so you should generally run issues by me first. The best way to do this is if you're having a crash to put it on pastebin. With that it's usually pretty easy for me to hunt down the problem. The FTB Team isn't responsible for support for the pack, so please don't bother them about it. If you've added a mod to the pack and need help tracking down a problem, I'm happy to do that. Just keep it to the thread and if you're copying/pasting a lot of stuff at least put it in spoiler tags if not linking to pastebin. I usually check the forums throughout the day, just be patient.
