Minecraft Flatland Survival Win10

Flatland Survival Win10

This is a Minecraft Windows 10 edition survival challenge map that takes place on a flatland world. You start with a tree and a chest of items and must build a viable place to live. Since the Windows 10 flat world does not include any structures like the Java version, I have included a set of items that would be impossible to get otherwise including chorus flowers so you can build some of the new blocks. You can use the Skyblock  challenges in this game if you would like some concrete goals. 

The download includes a behavior pack for use with the map that adds basic items such as iron, gold and diamond as common mob drops. This link at Mojang shows how to install add-ons for Win10/PE.

Time for Adventure

Time For Adventure! (Beta 1.0)

Minecraft 1.7.10

This is a private mod pack that I created in order to recreate the fun of the old Hexxit mod pack that was available in Minecraft 1.5.2. This mod is about exploration and adventure, discovering new structures above and below ground, and conquering a wide range of dungeons and monsters. If you like conquering dungeons, I have added every dungeon generator I could find for 1.7.10 so you are bound to discover more spawners than most CTM maps. Of course this mod pack also has more loot than you can shake a sword at, magical armor and trinkets with a splash of magic and tech. There is even a whole new world to explore if you dare to venture to the Twilight Forest. If you like adventure and discovery, this mod pack is just the ticket to a whole new Minecraft experience with a familiar look and feel.    

Looking at the mods contained within Hexxit I was able to include most of the original mods, including the signature Chocobo mod. A handful mods however are no longer available, such as the Hexxit gear, or are not allowed in a mod pack such as the Legendary Gear. One major omission is a biome mod. Because of the number of mods in the game, I did not include any biome mods as they created too much lag. Feel free to add one if your computer can handle it. Keep in mind that since I have not included a biome mod here, there may be conflicts that will need to be resolved.

As you can see from the list below I have also added a number of mods that were not in the original. Tinkers and the Chocobo mods were in the original Hexxit, but to add some deeper progression I have included Ars Magica 2, the Thermal Expansion set of mods and the Twilight Forest mod. Ars Magica is intended to add some defensive and offensive capabilities, Thermal expansion is included as an alternative and adjunct to Tinkers, and the Twilight Forest is included to expand the world and add even more discovery and adventure. The nether is going to be a different experience since I have added Natura, Nether Ores and Nether dungeons to the mix. And I have added one of my favorite mods, Infernal Mobs, just to keep it real. My main criteria in choosing the mods was the fun factor, and if I felt it would be fun to have, I included it in the pack. You can get OP this, but you will need to follow the various progression lines, so you will have many hours of fun before you reach that point. Of course, there is some fun OP random loot along the way, so look out for that as you explore this world. 

I have also added a number of convenience mods such as Starting Inventory, a deconstruction table since you are going to get tons of loot, loot bags just because they are fun, Colourful Portals to get around the world much easier, Open Blocks since it has so many useful gizmos, Waila and Waila Harvestability, Damage Indicators, Armor and Status Effects, Inventory Tweaks, the Journey Minimap, NEI of course, and all the building mods so that you can build that epic base as you work toward becoming master of the world. Be sure to look over the mod list and check out the websites for more information.

These mods should all work "out of the box" however, you will probably want to tweak the config files to your liking. Starting Inventory starts your character with a set of stone tools , torches and apples, but you can change that in the config file to whatever you would like.

It is time for adventure!

Minecraft: Rick's Mod pack (1.6.4)

posted Feb 9, 2014, 6:42 PM by Rick Clark   [ updated Feb 9, 2014, 6:53 PM ]

Most of the mod packs that are available have a ton of mods that I would never use so I built my own mod pack. I only included mods I wanted to play and that left the game play mostly intact. Most of these mods are either cosmetic, functional, or just something fun and different. I did not include any of the machine mods as those are readily available elsewhere.

I am not going to release any of these mod files. If you want to use any of these mods, you can download them from the listed websites. All of these mods work "out of the box" and do not require any configuration, except for DirectionHUD which I aligned to top left. See the DirectionHUD config file.

Some of these mods require dependency files so be sure to read the installation notes on the mods.

You Can Go Back

Old World New Game

I loaded up version 1.4.7 in the Minecraft launcher and created my old world. 1.4.7 was the last version that kept my old world intact; later versions made quite a few unwanted changes and since 1.6.4, the world has been completely different. 

I am of course quite familiar with this world, but it is amazing how much I have enjoyed playing again on this world. This is my favorite world and I did not know how much I missed it until I loaded it up again and stood looking out over the river from the green forest. None of the new generation changes have improved on this lovely world for me.

In Minecraft at least, you can go back.
