    FTB Continuum

    FTB Continuum is an expert style modpack packed with some of the latest tech mods by Feed the Beast! Majority of the recipes and intended progression that you are used to has been changed. Continuum introduces new, never before used mods to make things even more difficult and challenging. The overall goal of this pack is to extend game play buy making large changes to progression though out the mods. This pack contains a lot of custom quests to help you progress and provide tips/tricks and even rewards as you play through Continuum. Note that the quests are completely optional to play through the pack, but high suggested due to the large number of game play changes. The survival difficulty has not been changed other than the introduction of Spice of Life, however this is setup in a way where it’s not a burden to the player.

    For FTB Continuum, we will be using github for issue tracking. If you find a bug, please report it here


    Future modpacks

    Next up for development is a rework of FTB Revelations, with new mods and lots of changes. After that, we'll be working on a new skyblock pack based on Revelations.


    Minefaire pack

    The tournament pack that was played at Minefaire LA will be coming to the launcher soon.

    Presumably in packs that are themed for magic mods?

    The description explicitly says "tech mods" in the first sentence.

    There's a dozen grammatical errors in the description at least, fwiw :p

    @Feed the Beast team, grats on the release, look forward to checking it out.

    inb4 everyone bitches about their preferred mods missing or styles of play broken: Not all packs are designed for everyone. This one's probably not for you. Go away.

    That would make sense if it was like Age of Engineering which has 30+ big tech mods and is thematic. This is just like nothing. There's like 10 content mods and that's about it. It's like a skeleton of a pack.
     
  7. Pyure

    Woops that's super-unfortunate for you. You should definitely consider never touching this pack then, if it wasn't already very obvious. Particularly since expert packs generally lend themselves better to those who can count.

    I can count perfectly fine.
    We have content mods and utility mods.
    Content mods are big and add content. Utility mods add one or two utilities.
    Let's count the content mods.
    Actually Additions
    Advanced Rocketry
    AE2
    EFab
    Environmental Tech
    Extra Utilities
    Extreme Reactors
    Forestry
    Immersive Engineering
    Industrial Foregoing
    Project E
    Quark
    RFTools
    Tinkers
    And Thermal + Friends
    15 content mods.
    Let's be honest. This pack should've been started later after 1.12 had time to mature.

    You don't get to count which content mods are content mods. I counted 44 without even trying before I got bored of that.

    Thermal "and friends" aren't one mod. No, I don't care about your opinion on the matter.

    Addons are content mods. There are several.
    Storage mods are content mods. There are several.
    Some larger things, like DarkUtils, Redstone Arsenal, Steve's carts, etc, etc, etc you just totally insanely skipped for no reason.

    The important thing is that you're not ready for the pack, so, rather than complain, why don't you go play something else? Everyone's entitled to their opinion on the pack, and you've made it. Put on your big-boy pants and move on. OR do what I'm doing: evaluating the pack based on the pack rather than my childish preconceptions.

    Back to SevTech: Ages I go. There will be a thread about this btw. This crap ain't gonna fly on Twitch.

    We're sorry, the grownup you are dialing is not in service. Please try again later.

    I would say leys play the pack a bit instead of looking at the mid list and calling foul. Also find it funny now after release people are like "should have waited longer"...rofl.

    Note: Remember also that Continuum was planed based on FTB 1.10 pack Beyound. Those plans were updated to 1.12 they didn't replan the expert pack as far as I know.

    Yay time to go to patreon :) I'm freaking excited as hell.

    The last time I was this anxious was year 2009 when Kim Jong Ill test fired his first ICBMs and the next day as a Marine Corps Corporal I was on a boat rifle in hand going to the DMZ in south Korea (just in case shit hit the fan) to stand there and slow down the north.

    Two very different anxietys but damn I don't care If they excluded magic and some other content mods.
    True story about FTB infinity evolved. They completely re did the pack like two times to add things like magic and other stuff.

    I know that this mod pack will only gain mods and content and this is just the first release.

    All you hate mongers out there shut up if you have suggestions to add mods or have issues with the pack go use the github tracker it's for issues and IDEAS

    Very excited to try this pack out. I have deliberately watched no videos to try and experience all the changes first hand!

    Any plans to provide long term support for this Modpack?

    I'm not an official member but FTB has always taken the time to support there modpacks afterwards.

    I would venture to guess this flagship modpack will get good support, it even has it's own issue tracker

    So, now it comes down to this pack competing with Exuria from the AoE dev. Thats a bold move to release on the same day, from whoever decided it.

    Anyways, good job with finally releasing the pack, people have been waiting on it for quite some time.

    Edit: Exoria, misspelt it

    I couldn't find anything while googling Exuria. Can you give more detail or are you just beating on troll drums?
