When you started did you make it an sky island or sky Dimension + mods, the latter is what you should have done, I know I made the same mistake at the start, the sky lands will have many many islands to explore.Hi im having some issue getting into thaumcraft. You need silverwood plank to make part of some important thaumcraft machine. The only way i found to get the silverwood sapling is legendary loot bag but i think its a bit too hard to get with the recent nerf on lootbag. I tested it in creative mode and i had to open 10 legendary bag to get a sapling, Maybe add silverwood sapling to a lower lootbag tier or even add a recipe for it.
And one more thing.. Are we suppose to only have one island on your map ? After looking at some of your screenshot you seem to have more island around you but i only got one on my map. I think i pick the wrong world type.
Thank again for the awesome pack.
Hint, after the map loads quickly scout out the island you spawn on, mainly for broken water tower parts, & if your lucky a windmill or even a solar array, & if you find any buildings investigate carefully some are safe, but some have mob spawners in or under them.
Have fun its a very interesting pack.
