    Hello, Sawtooth44 here with this How To Make A Modpack
    Making a modpack is quite simple when you get the hang of it (like most things) but i shall be your guide and why not, ive made just as many modpacks as atlanticcraft... maybe even more
    so now heres a step by step guide to it

    1) The Theme: The Theme is important if your trying to make a pack as it give you an idea of what should be in the pack for example Magic or Technology

    2) The Mod List: go around Youtube, MC Forums and Planet MC to find mods that fit the theme, you never know what you will find with a quick search or you can ask some people that play alot of modded MC such as myself for a few mods suggestions (make sure you put the list down somewhere be it bookmarks/favourites or a actual list)

    3) Name: Modpacks need a name that fits them (or not like the modpack "Voids Wrath"), try to avoid "Craft" in the name for its over done, examples for names for packs can be "Arcane War", "Mechanicam" or "Crazy Craft"

    4) Creating the Modpack profile: This is were most people now get lost as they dont make profiles on there launcher, so i make this small list on how to do it (guide-ception)
    1. Open the normal MC Launcher
    2. Click "New Profile"
    3. Change the .Minecraft to your modpacks name or change the entire directory (still end it with your modpack name)
    4. Save and play on desired version for your modpack (best ones are 1.7.10 and 1.6.4)
    5. Quit MC, this is to load up vanillia files
    6. Get the correct version of MC Forge needed (i recommend the recommended version and not the latest) and install it
    7. Edit your new profile so the version now has forge in it, save and play again
    8. Stare Dad: QUIT MC AGAIN! Sawtooth44: cause you need them forge files loaded (thanks stare dad for that interruption)
    9. Edit profile again now click "Open Game Directories" and look for a "mods" folder, if there isent one MAKE ONE!
    10. Download all the mods from your list and install them correctly as sometimes they have little querks such as required files from other mods (such as animationAPI for things like ARSMagica)
    11. name the profile to your modpacks name (to avoid confusion)
    12. ...
    13. PLAY! to see if everything is working
    Now if you have crashes with your new modpack be it mine, someone elses list on the VW forums or yours (dont bother sending me crash logs from other launchers and if there void launcher ones, post them elsewhere on the forums), dont hesitate to PM me with a crash log as i am one of the few staff here that can read that mess

    If you have any questions, comment them below and ill get to them quickly (some say i stalk the forums)

    That could mean that maybe some mods are conflicting with each other.
