1.7.10 packs are in the works. @Eyamaz has had an unfortunate computer fire which may cause some delay on the tech packs. 4 FTB packs are currently planned: Magic pack - no tech mods. Lots of mystical lore and quests FTB Lite 3 : Lightweight foundation pack. Somewhere between 5-10 content adding mods with tutorial quests. Tech pack - tech factory mods. May have quests Super Duper Secret pack Eyamaz has been hinting at. The lore continues. More quests more tweaks more fun. Magic and Lite will be my babies this time while Eyamaz will be doing Tech and the Secret pack. I will probably stick my nose into the secret pack at some point. For Magic and Lite and my personal packs, development will proceed as follows: Alpha - no quests no major tweaks. - Break the mods find bugs, make sure there's nothing that would mean a mod needs pulled. Beta - Hello tweaks and basic quests - More breaking needed, recipe testing, and quest path progression testing Stable - Full release with full tweaks, quests and evilness. While I will try to ensure no world resets are needed between any of the stages, it is possible that going from Alpha to Beta may lose some mods and you may want to restart. If you want to make sure nothing will change/break or require a reset, wait till Stable. The 1.7.10 packs will be some of the most detailed packs FTB has ever done. They will not be just a group of almost compatible mods thrown together with a few basic quests. There will be storylines that cross reference other packs and lore and tweaks and all sorts of gameplay additions. Old familiar mods will be back along with some new friends. Eyamaz may do his pack development differently. I am sure he'll comment on any differences. I do not know when DW20 will be ready to do a pack. But we have a team to handle the third party packs maintained by FTB. When he's ready I am sure he'll tweet it out. Will there be a pack that combines tech and magic? Yes Will there be a pack that throws every popular mod at a wall and hopes they almost work together? No You want a pack where people just throw every mod they can load without crashing in a folder... you don't need a modpack team to do it for you. Do NOT ask for ETA's or modlists. Doing so may get you timed out from the forums. We'll let you know when they are ready for you to start breaking them. NO YOU MAY NOT HAVE AN ETA.
