    Hey folks! Another day, another pack release, this time with Simply Magic! This is a pack I have developed with @Brizzle. Enjoy!
    Please post bug reports in the repository: https://github.com/DrasticDemise/Simply-Magic

    If you wish to contribute to the development and upkeep of this mod pack, visit the git page for guidelines and available projects. If you wish to propose changes to this mod pack, visit the Git and post an issue with the tag [Proposal].
    Now available on the Curse Launcher.
    Pack code: SimplyMagic

    Description: Simply Magic is an Hardcore Questing Pack in which players are walked through core magic mods without the comforts of vanilla or otherwise "technological" armors and weapons. Quests are provided supplemental to in-game documentation and provide a tutorial-like experience to those that wish to learn magic mods without the hardcore aspects that other magic-themed packs demand. Additional documentation is provided in-game for core gameplay changes, and players will also find an array of automation-themed challenges for those that wish to prove their mastery in magic.

    Simply Magic aims to fill the niche that Mage Quest is no longer able to. Simply Magic provides in-game documentation in a tutorial-like experience for the following mods:
    • Ars Magica
    • Aura Cascade
    • Thaumcraft
    • Botania
    • Mystcraft
    • Blood Magic
    • Witchery

    This pack aims to provide a magic experience without the overshadowing of tech mods or hardcore game play. There is no tech here! The quest book aims to show points of mods that fill the niche of the often used Thermal Expansion and Applied Energistics. Need an option for mass storage? There is already a mod for it, get learning!

    One notable change is that vanilla weapons and tools above stone are set to 1 durability.
    The exception to this rule is that Iron Pickaxes have a durability of 100. This is to encourage the use of magic tools that are otherwise overlooked.

    World Generation is handled by Alternate Terrain Generation and the Streams Mod. Make sure to set it to ATG in world creation!

    Using the Vanilla food system. No food clutter from Pam's Harvestcraft or eating requirements from Spice of Life or Hunger Overhaul. This allows users to explore modded foods and production that are often overlooked.

    The only mobs added are mobs from Dark Menagerie and the core magic mods. Dark Menagerie offers a variety in combat that isn't outrageously unlike vanilla.

    Exploration is encouraged by Thaumcraft and Rougelike Dungeons. Those that wish to challenge their magical gear will find raid-able Rougelike dungeons! Future exploration mods may be added in the future.

    This pack is extremely light. You should have no problem running this pack! The mods selected are extremely light-weight and are further optimized by Fastcraft and BetterFPS.

    Hey! You mind if I create a tutorial on Aura Cascade? Banished has one, but I don't think everybody who wants to play Aura Cascade should have to survive in a dark cave for a while.

    Sure! If you write the quest line and submit a pull request on the repository, I will merge it into the quest lines if it is well made. Try to keep it the same tone as the other quests. Just do /hqm save (name of quest line) and post the json file (found in configs - hqm - questfiles) in the repository.

    Just nice when I want to try more magic mods :D
    Keep up the great work @DrasticDemise

    Edit* Is there any ore doubling I'm missing in the pack beside blood magic? And for blood magic the ore doubling is on tier 3 right?

    I've only played a little bit, but this pack looks great. Do you have any suggestions on early tools to use? I'm not aware of any magic mod tools that can be made right out the gate. I think I may switch out ATG though, as it does some really odd things. Almost all shores are turned to swamp biomes, so all the islands/continents have weird green borders. Biomes are also very small and have a lot of weird sudden transitions. I think I'll probably change to RTG for my personal play, as I much prefer worlds created by that.

    This sounds awesome, and I think Aura Cascade would be a great addition to this pack. Just wanted to second this suggestion.

    Thaumcraft will allow you to double ores and eventually triple your ores with a chance of an additional nugget with the Infernal Furnace and Blast Furnace.

    Your earliest choices are Thaumium or Manasteel pickaxes, but I advise you go through Ars Magica2 and create a dig spell. It costs you nothing in resources (aside from creating it) and you will begin to level up early in the game.

    First suggestion, I would suggest fast leaf decay.
    Second suggestion, I will return with another.
    I will third the suggestion of aura cascade.

    Fast leaf decay doesn't play nice with mods that depend on tree growth such as the Botania flower that eats trees and leaves.

    Oh my gosh... I have a following now. Need to learn how to use Git and then I'll start makin'!

    Just a suggestion: BigTrees? I feel it goes well with ATG and Streams. Oh, and Storage Drawers, since while it has its own sorting mechanics, I feel that they compliment Corporea nicely and give more usability to the system with the Controller, compared to the Inventarium that outshines it.

    I suggest adding ttcore mod, which adds some comfortable tricks, like right click harvest without break the seeds, added auto-smelt enchantment which is a good way to enchant with Terra shatterer, if it go with fortune 3, haha... you know that! tinkers smite luck hammer! etc.

    Oh, alright. I'll figure it out.

    I have released an update including your quest line. Should be available in about 15 minutes to an hour. Good job!

    I set up a server for my girls and I and we are having a great time. One question, what do you suggest for portal storage?

    CyanosLootableBodies can't fit a lot of situations like die in lava lake , meet Hungry nodes when you're on your boat! -_-! And Ars Magica's armor will disappear too. That all happened to me before. I finally change to 'guardian chests mod' or simply use 'keep inventory mod'. 2 bad days!
