Hi guys , i wanted to show as i progress on my own made modpack. a bunch of recipes changed to balance the gameplay to my style , the pack is on hardcore a few of the recipes credit goes to the creator of the modpacks that inspired my recipes to change.

I tested my modpacks for a lot of hours deleted my worlds , made new ones , etc. I'm currently insecure about this modpack because i feel there's something missing , this modpack has no magic mods i felt there's shouldn't be magic and tech in the same modpack. therefor to make it more realistic i took all the magic out and edited few recipes for my own personal use to balance the way i like to play. a lot of recipes changed here , including the creation of pickaxes low tier for example the only pick you can make at the begging is wooden you have to find certuz quarts and make a pick out of it , there's no cobblestone pickaxe , all pickaxes from all the mods have been disabled, swords too. you will go from wood to iron , except copper sword or pickaxe. Furnance recipe went from being 8 cobblestone to 8 compressed cobblestone from Extrautilities. As you follow my playthrought you will see what recipes changed , I hope you enjoy and leave some ideas , sustainments and/or improvements. Thanks for the time. Day 1 Spoiler Spawned on a messa biome , not happy about but we have to go with it. Logs give 2 planks oh wait what!? , yup that's right folks 4 planks is too OP here. does that means 4 logs to make a chest? YES! :O Spoiler Made my first wooden pickaxe , went for a small mining trip to get some cobblestone found out i can't make no stone pickaxe. Spoiler After mining some more and asking myself what was going to happen with no cobblestone pickaxe , my ways of obtaining iron or any other ore was difficult i decided to make a furnance to cook some of my raw food from animals , when i found about this... Spoiler is not possible after walking and fighting some mobs i had a bone from one of the skeletons , successfully adopted a dog named max. Spoiler Day 2 made a bed slept through the night , found myself on the second day on a unknown place not knowing what else has changed. Mined some certuz quart and made a pickaxe Spoiler After some mining and some struggle with mobs i finally made it to a point where i got enough cobblestone to create my first furnance yay!. Spoiler Long night.... hunger is rising , mobs are trying to kill me no protection , only my sword made out of copper not good enough to fight all this mobs. Spoiler upcoming next , Mining trip stay tuned folks.
