Spent the better part of 10/12 hours on this pack and I really cant believe that this is a released finished product.
- Void - Meh its OK but its a forced grind. Stupid little things like EMC re-setting every time you leave is annoying consider its based on EMC or at least the early game is.
- Early questing is stifled with blocks and grind points just to rack up play time. A perfect example is the philo stone quest.
- Simple things that need explaining dont...Graves are a PITA in this pack. I spent the better part of 20 minutes trying to figure out how to loot my first grave in the overworld. Theres a player head and map marker that you can both click on that does nothing except change inv forcing. Ive played MC for the better part of 10 years and never run across this particular mod and I can see why. It sucks.
- Over and over its just a million little things that you have to spend ton of time researching because the mod forces you play different than you usually do, but doesn't explain WHY or HOW.
- One of two final straws: Ingot formation. JEI shows it blocked behind botania but no way to do botania before ingots. Turns out you can get gold and make an ingot blank but there is absolutely not way to know that from the in game documentation. Gold....yeah another PITA. Gold is hidden in the Magnetite vein formation. Great job on the description here. Would it be that hard to add GOLD to the label instead of having to search google, youtube and finally having to ask on the forum.....Just f;ing stupid.
- Last straw: Tinkers / Smeltary. Why of all things that are holy would you put this in the pack and then DISABLE the smeltary? This is what tinkers is, not porcelain melters. You gutted a great mod and then made it totally unclear that the smeltary does not work.....I get that the smeltary controller is disabled but its not clear that the smeltary still doesnt work using the seared furnace controller. 2 hours wasted putting in grout in the stupid kiln and hunting down copper to find out the smeltary doesnt work.
- TLDR: THIS PACK SUCKS
- Im sure the fan bois will be out in full force, but theres a reason that this pack isnt overwhelming the servers out there. SF4 wasnt great but its a ton better than this forced grind with lacking documentation.
