I have a friend who won't play Minecraft because it looks boring. He's right, of course. He would love modded Minecraft, however, so I convinced him to join me in a game. I'm trying to select the right modpack for the introduction. Keep in mind, he's never used NEI or anything like it, he doesn't know anything about power generation, and complicated things like Blood Magic are going to just baffle him. Tinkers' Construct seems like a good starting point, but I'm looking for a pack that leaves him room to grow without destroying his enthusiasm.
