I updated to v1.9.2 of FTB Interactions via the new FTB Launcher, and the main title screen was really goofy - it was blinking like an epileptic seizure, and the graphics were the "image not found" graphics with the pink and black squares. Very strange indeed.

Also, in the launcher itself, my version of FTB Interactions is still shown as v1.9.1 when I specifically updated it to v1.9.2 thru the launcher.

I went back to Twitch and used the v1.9.1 modpack that is still available there, I copied it into my MultiMC. While I'd love to be rid of Twitch for good, I'm still forced to use it for now, and that means I'm still stuck in v1.9.1 with the Gregtech Axes not working properly (that's reported to be fixed in v1.9.2 but I'll believe it when I actually see it, and not until).

Edit: My bad day just keeps getting worse... after a good 6-hour session yesterday, I re-open the modpack to find... there's no world listed in SSP mode. My world is in the save folder, and I did make backups as I played, which are located in the backups folder... but I have no world to click on and play. sigh Why would my entire world be gone, even tho it's still in the file directory?

Edit#2: So I was able to load one of my v1.9.1 backups into the v1.9.2 modpack, and my first order of business is to check out whether the functionality of the Gregtech Axe has returned... so I planted an oak sapling, and immediately realize that I can't "twerk" anymore, there's no particles from the sapling at all. Was "twerking" removed in modpack v1.9.2? I didn't see it in the version notes, if so.

Edit#3: Gregtech Axe NOT working, its doing the same exact thing it did in v1.9.1, very discouraging since we were told it would be fixed in v1.9.2

When I examine the install location for the FTB Launcher, I navigate to the "instances" folder, and I see these two folders:

9f0bb311-0e85-42eb-9654-d1ca2ed4055e
31dca0c2-9686-40ba-9dcf-30c75578f4a3

By examining the files in those two folders, I can see the first one is FTB Omnia, and the second is FTB Interactions

Why are you using such ridiculous filenames for the instances?
Can we rename the instances folders to something better, such as the modpack name and version number? MultiMC allows me to name the folders whatever I wish to call them, why can't FTB Launcher do something similar?

Question:
What is the best 1.12 way of dealing with duplicate ores? Any special new mods/tools, or just disable duplicates in various configs?

Also, is there an easy way to add various new ores/metals to Tinkers Smeltery recipes? Or stuck doing CraftTweaker for them all?

i have a personal modpack that i am building and i am not sure what mod is preventing all passive, mobs from spawning except for villagers as well as netrual mobs and hostile overworld mobs from spawning. I ported the modpack to another laptop and the mobs appeared in the world. i have 277 mods including the libaries and needed api's installed and cannot pinpoint what is causing the problem. any help or advice on what is causing this issue would be great. (Note my other laptop has 32GB RAM and the one having issues with mob spawning has 16GB RAM no changes were made to spawning rules so please don't tell me use the mob spawning gamerule)

Modpack: FTB Interactions
Item: Healing Fragment (from Animus mod)
Note: This item has a rather unique feature - it cannot be moved once it is in your inventory.
I was raiding a dungeon and broke two chests that contained these fragments, and they didn't stack, so I've lost two inventory slots permanently, one of them being hot bar slot #5. This is absolutely unacceptable. Who thought this item was a good idea? LOL
Question: How can I remove these items from my inventory? I'm playing offline SSP so I should be able to try any method suggested. Thanks.

Resolved: Creative mode allows them to be dragged to the trash can and deleted. However, creative mode doesn't allow stacking for this item so I can't stack them myself and put them in a non-hotbar slot. Oh well.

modpack: FTB Interactions v1.9.1

Why was the choice made to NOT utilize "Crystalized Menril Chunks" for making Menril Resin in this modpack?

Instead, it was decided to create a new item using ContentTweaker called "Menril Crystal". This item is created by running Menril Logs thru a Gregtech Extractor, and then the Menril Csystal is run thru a Gregtech Centrifuge to make Menril Resin.

Because of the emphasis on coke ovens, a Menril Tree farm donates all its wood to the charcoal -> coal coke processing. There's no wood left over for making these ContentTweaker "Menril Crystals". So we need to make the tree farm even bigger to accomodate two production lines.

And meanwhile, the tree farm is producing tens of thousands of an already-existing item, the "Crystalized Menril Chunks", which could have then been used to make Menril Resin somehow.

There is no other use in the modpack for these Crystalized Menril Chunks, and they are produced by the tens of thousands. I have already filled a Cache (holding 20K items) from running the tree farm to feed my coke ovens. It's very sad to realize I have to void all these items and make even more Menril Wood. It doesn't seem logical to me.

If you're looking to play like a modpack online, you're in a bit of a situation. Every person who wants to play should have purchased a copy of Minecraft; in addition to this you need some sort of server to play on. In theory, if one persons computer is powerful enough, it could run a server itself. You can find instructions on how to do that.

I am trying to figure out a way to view all available modpacks in the FTB app. At the moment it only shows the same four packs in the "trending"/"new"/etc. tabs. It seems like, unless you already know the name of the pack you are looking for, you won't really find it. Due to the four character search limit I've been entering FTB (A-Z/0-9) one at a time... Is there a better way that i'm missing?

Hello! I'm trying to make a ship via Davinci's Vessels and use parts from IC2 on the ship, but by default adding IC2 parts seems to kill the ship. I found the whitelist/blacklist for DV (well, for Moving World but DV uses it) but I'm not sure where to find the information on IC2's blocks to add them to the whitelist.

I'd like to add a couple blocks from ICBM Classic and Open Modular Turrets as well but I figured IC2 was a good start. I've googled and googled but I haven't found anything helpful so far, but it at least led me here. Anyone have a clue?

I suppose this is a common thing, but as a newbie in FTB who just started playing the Revelation modpack I would like to improve my in game performance and I wonder if the poor piece of junk that I call my PC isn't the limit :
  1. Intel Core i7-3770 3.40 GHz (7 years old, never taken out of the socket, no thermal paste added)
  2. 8 GB (7 y.o. as well)
  3. GTX 1060 3GB twin cooler by msi (2 y.o. no special adjustments, checking drivers from time to time)
If it isn't, then what tweaks other than OptiFine would improve my overall performance and stability?

Cheers!

Thaumcraft 1.7.10 - what blocks are useful for blocking taint? or is there a list I can go look at? I tried looking in the configs but couldn't find a list.

As far as I know, there isn't one. You have to be wary of taint, and try like hell not to spawn some. If you do, research your way to being able to clean it up, and or use some of the flowers that spawn around Thaumcraft trees. IIRC they will hold back taint.

Great advice, except I'm playing Iskandar's Atonement Sins of the past... not really an option to head it off at the past. I know glass works but sand is in very very short supply. I'll keep looking.

I have a question regarding the Omina pack. I have two comps that i have different mods on cause one is poo and one is not. Omnia on the good computer spawned this amazing village that i really wanted to do something with in creative but i dont have the amount of time on that one that is needed. I have on my poo comp biomes o plenty and valhasia structures but unfortunately there is another one that deals with village spawns as the same seed yielded the same village the same terrain but like a quarter of the original village houses. Just wondering if anyone knows offhand which mods deal with village spawn so i may have a copy of that village. (unless theres a way to just transfer the save over idk where to look in the folders for that.) sorry for my book lol
