No, not playing it. The inclusive of Tech Reborn is questionable at best. @GamerwithnoGame made this clear in @Closet Gamer's discord. Its a bug filled mod that doesn't work sometimes. As for recipe changes, I do not approve of things like 1 log into 2 planks and 2 planks into 2 sticks. This is what I was worried about, difficulty is not tedium. They're different in a few major ways, difficulty is making a pack more challenging through recipe manipulation and more importantly CHANGING MOD MECHANICS, the best packs do this well, such as in Forever Stranded: Lost Souls, to make a Mana Pool, you need a luminous crafting table from Astral Sorcery. TEDIUM is something you want to avoid, Divine Journey, which is one of the most challenging 1.7.10 packs, has 1 log - 4 planks, same thing with Modern Skyblock 3, and Age of Engineering.
