Default The next mod pack for Serenity

Everyone likes options, right?
I'm listing what seem to be the most viable options for where we're going with Serenity next. I'll leave the poll open through the end of next weekend.

I've been trying to figure out the differences between the three and found this chart for Unhinged/Unleashed: Ultimate vs Unleashed/Unhinged - Pastebin.com
I also found this one that compares Direwolf as well: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...pUnBRTXc#gid=0
I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information.

I did find at least one possible error in that comparison. Both the official mod list and the FTB wiki do not list PowerConverters for the Direwolf pack. Given that Petroleum Generators are also out, it looks like it will take a more complex path from Fuel/Oil to EU. Solar panels will be cheaper though, so maybe that will be the way to go, even early on.

I also just noticed that the GraviSuite mod is out of Direwolf, so no advanced lappacks or advanced electric jetpacks, etc.

The included mods for each pack are listed in the description in the FTB launcher.
That list at that link isn't entirely accurate, you're better off checking the launcher yourself.

There are a few other things to consider:
1) More mods is not always better
2) While Direwolf20 and Unleashed both have MFFS, they are different implementations that forked from the same original project. They are not identical.
3) Direwolf20 has Compact Solars. Unleashed has Advanced Solars. Some people prefer one over the other.

Hmm, none of the above! I don't think that gives us anything over where we are other than the removal of GT and thus making things a little simpler. I wonder if we should wait for more packs to be added to ftb for 1.5.2/1.6.

Cheith, Ultimate is dead. There will never be another update for it. These are the modpacks currently actively supported by the FTB folks. It's time for a world reset, so it's time to move to an actively supported modpack.

This is why direwof20 is the better choice, it is the only modpack to have been consistently updated since FTB first came on the scene, and it's the best choice to avoid further chopping and changing in the future. And one of the most balanced.

There are no power converters (as in power bridges, consumers and producers) in DW20

The modular power suits can charge all electric tools so bat packs are not required.

On the contrary it actually makes things harder to an extent.
Gregtech brutally punishes you early game but can be easily overcome by a handfull of players combining resources, once you are over the resource hurdles it is exponentially easy, being able to punch out UU to make Ultimate solars (anything really) is easy mode.
In contrast without gregtech, for every ultimate you want, you are going to need the resources to make 512 standard solar panels, there are no shortcuts.
