Innocent, not exactly. It's a long story, but the mod creators are not perfectly innocent. But that's a discussion for another time, another place. Also I don't really pay attention to FTB, but when I hear about it, if I remember, I'll post it.Thank you for answering! I guess I should download Tekkit for fun, but shed a tear for the innocent mod developers every time I start it up. If LS could post in this thread when the Feed The Beast pack is out, I'd be very happy.
Mods need to be updated to work with a new release, almost every release. An exception, for example, was 1.3.2. What I would do is this:But I guess I should wait with downloading mods until 1.4 is released (any week now).
As far as I've understood, every time Minecraft updates, mods get screwy? I'd rather explore 1.4 first, then try a mod, than installing a mod that doesn't work for weeks after I've got it.
Modpack: Absolutely nothing to worry about, if you're using the Technic Launcher. Other launchers too, most likely.
Mod: Assuming the mod goes directly in your standard minecraft.jar, I would wait, personally. It screws up the MC update, from what I've seen.
Mastadi covered this.Also, I play Vanilla Minecraft with a friend every Friday (I've moved away for studies, but this way we can still "hang out"). If I install Tekkit, would I still be able to access Vanilla and play on our world?
