Feed The Beast Minecraft (FTB) is a mod pack for servers and clients. It is similar to the Tekkit pack, but has been updated to support the modern Minecraft versions in which Tekkit is still clambering desperately to support. Basically, you take normal Minecraft, and you add a bunch of mods that change the way you play, by adding new items to build and things to do. The screen-shot provided shows the solar panels, which is a new way to power machines. These solar panels in the screen-shot are used to power electric furnaces, macerators and other machinery that are unique to this mod compilation. Servers are required to download a new .jar file to host the game, and clients are required to download a new launcher which takes your normal Minecraft login information to use (you need to purchase Minecraft to play this mod). Best of all, it retains the entire normal Minecraft game, as well as all the new things (so you can still play like Vanilla if you choose to do so). Brilliant time sucker!
– Adds lots of new things to do to normal Minecraft
– Works on the same systems that can play Minecraft
– Uses Minecraft login information for play (you need to own a legitimate Minecraft account to play)
– Seperate install for server and client
