Hey everyone, so like me, I am sure that most people are completely lost in all the new mods. So I have put together a list of tutorials for everything that is new in Horizons.

Please keep in mind, that I have removed mods that were in previous packs (with the exclusion of Thaumcraft 4 as it has so much new content it needs a new tutorial)

yeah, i noticed. There were only two videos and that one was the most complete as the other one decided to leave out most of the features.

I'm looking forward to seeing it and I will definitely add it here once it is done

wow, awesome work you've done there.
makes me thinking, would be nice if every modpack is released and nice and stable if FTB could hire someone to spotlight all the mods featured in the FTB packs and add them for the wiki :)

Direwolf20 covers most of the FTB Mods, BevoLJ covers a few more, but apart from that, these are the only mods which are in real need of a proper spotlight. And technically, most of these mods are only going to be in this pack anyways, and this pack is mainly for people to get a taste-test of mods they have never heard of.

o/ Vike! Great work, as always, on the thread. :)

Just wanted to let you know Ako just did a Part 1 spotlight on Way's Bloodmagic mod.

Ako's Part 1 of his Bloodmagic Spotlight

I definitely recommend this spotlight, since it contains the most accurate and up-to-date information thus far. It is only part 1 of three, so I a personally going to wait for all the parts to be up before I place it on my forum thread, but if you want a good getting started point, this would be it.

I'm doing a Let's Play series on this pack. First episode will be out later today.

I do DW20 style videos and decided to try the Horizons pack since it has a lot of new mods.
I figure Direwolf20 has the best videos out there on his pack anyway.

With that, I will also be doing mod spotlights on all the mods in the pack as well.
I put a lot of time into the thought and presentation of my builds and videos, and welcome any critique.

I'm sorry, but I will not be posting whole LP's here, I will only be posting tutorials for the mods

Lol it's going to take a while to get it all in. You realize this mod adds a ton of things? I mean like 30+ modules that can be combined on sockets to do pretty much anything :p

The video for Pam's Harvestcraft is rubbish. The guy clearly doesn't know what he's doing, and a third of the video is just compensating for not having prepared properly for the demo.
