Application: Feed the Beast
Description: From the publisher's website:
Feed the Beast, also known as FTB, originated as a custom challenge map in Minecraft that made heavy use of multiple tech mods. It played very similar to a type of map known as Sky Block, where the player is started in a void world with only a small platform, and must overcome a series of challenges. Because FTB included tech mods, it was possible to use the various custom blocks and items to keep track of the challenges and the player's progress, as well as automatically give awards after each challenge was met.
The mod pack used for the map then became very popular and soon evolved into many other packs including lite, ultimate and tech world. The Feed the Beast launcher was released in November of 2012 to a livestream of over 9000 people! Since then many youtubers have became involved with Feed the Beast and the community has continued to grow.
1) This application only contains the Feed the Beast launcher. There are no modpacks preinstalled, hence why the package is so small to download. Please leave room for the modpacks and other content you use.
2) Following on from the first point, you must have a valid Minecraft login in order to use this properly. Please don't post or advocate ways to get around this.
3) All data is stored in the Data folder of the application, so updates to the launcher proper should not affect your saves. Though if this updates, be wary and backup before you do, just in case.
4) jPortable or a local Java installation is necessary to run Minecraft and thus Feed the Beast.
