Get ready for something big.
There’s nothing like exploring the vast world of Minecraft with our August Mod Pack of the Month, FTB: Direwolf20. You’ll experience widely-expanded gameplay, balanced technology and a gazillion things to do! Follow along with the famous YouTuber, Direwolf20, by using the same pack he plays on his channel. Like we said before, get ready for something big. You’re going to need to strap down for this sweet ride!
What You Need to Know About FTB: Direwolf20
Having made his name by creating popular SSP (Survival Single Player) videos for YouTube, Direwolf20 is equally esteemed in the Minecraft community for “his” mod pack. In fact, the combination of mods that he was using became so sought after that it was released to the public under a wing of FTB (Feed the Beast).
Based on single-player gameplay, this mod pack still contains ample content for a great multiplayer experience. We actually recommend playing it with a group of friends!
So What’s in FTB: Direwolf20?
DW20, as it’s commonly called, contains a tremendous number of mods for Minecraft version 1.7.10. The mods installed are primarily focused on expanding gameplay. They do this by giving the player many things to do, places to explore and even new things to discover in SSP. Of course, like we aid before, there’s still plenty to do in groups as well!
Like most mod packs, there are new biomes and world generation thanks to Biomes ‘O Plenty, plus a wide range of new landscapes to check out. There are also tier-based technology mods that utilize new ores and oil, as well as others that promote automation. You might even think of this pack as being pretty modern-themed, but definitely not to the extreme degree of something like space exploration.
Some of the notable content and technology mods that this pack offers include BuildCraft, Carpenter’s Block, Ender Tech, Project Red, Factorization, BiblioCraft, Big Reactors, Applied Energistics, ComputerCraft, RailCraft, Industrial Craft, Modular Power Suits, Nuclear Control, Botania, Thermal Dynamics and Wireless Redstone. There’s certainly no shortage of options here!
The world of FTB: Direwolf20 is a fantasy world that also features magic, floating islands and all new fantasy mods. These were made possible by using Thaumcraft, Witchery and Blood Magic, just to name a few.
In terms of content, you’ll never run out of things to do or explore in this mod pack! There are dozens of ores to collect (and use!), new mobs to fight, hundreds of new blocks and even dozens of NPCs inside their walled towns. We told you this mod pack is big!
And because this pack is so big, there are also mods like JourneyMap, Guide-API, WAILA and Not Enough Items to help make life a little bit more convenient. And remember that if you’re planning on sharing your world with friends, then you’ll also enjoy mods like Hats, Morph and Iron Chests, as well as showing off your masterpiece(s) with Steve’s Carts 2.
Finally, let’s talk about performance! FastCraft is installed in this pack to keep all these mods working together as they should, all the while maintaining a nice, stable FPS.
