Default Feed The Beast beginners guide - how to start

Feed the Beast

Before playing Feed the Beast, you should do the following
  1. Purchase Minecraft from Mojang and create an account
  2. Install Minecraft and launch it at least once to verify it runs successfully on your computer

Installing the Launcher

Once you have Minecraft successfully running you are ready to install the FTB Launcher
  1. Browse to the FTB site and download the .exe from here. There is also a .jar file if you would rather use it
  2. Put the .exe in its own folder somewhere on your computer
  3. Run the .exe. It may take some time for it to configure itself the first time
  4. Click on the OPTIONS tab and configure the installation location, memory settings, and window size/position
  5. Create a profile (using your Minecraft username and password)

Choosing a FTB Mod Pack

There are multiple versions of the FTB Mod Pack. If you are brand new to FTB, you should start with the Lite version if it is available. The Magic Pack is also great to start out with. If you are versed in the tech and magic mods, go for broke with the full FTB Ultimate pack.
  1. In the launcher's main window click on the MODPACK tab
  2. Click on one of the packs on the left. The launcher will list the mods that make up that pack
  3. The filter option allows you to choose between FTB mod packs, 3rd party mod packs, and server versions of the mod packs
  4. Once you have chosen your pack click the Launch button
  5. Wait as the Launcher downloads, installs, and configures all of the mods
  6. Enjoy playing Feed the Beast!
