Ever get tired of starting a game and having full automation mining within an hour? Does the hunger mechanic seem like an annoyance rather than your lifeline? Does the lack of realistic physics annoy you? Dangerous Depths carries the theme that work is required to accomplish anything. There is no easy button that creates something out of nothing. Blood and sweat (literally) will earn you not only rewards, but a sense of accomplishment.
But don't worry! Dangerous Depths still contains many of the popular mods including Thermal Expansion, MineFactory Reloaded, Ars Magicka, Thaumcraft, Ender IO, Harvestcraft, Tinker's Construct, Buildcraft, Forestry, Railcraft, and even Ex Nihilo. However, most of them have been reconfigured to promote the modpack's theme.
The pack makes use of the "Hunger Overhaul" and "EnviroMine" mods, substantially increasing you chances for death. These mods add mechanics for a demanding hunger system, hydration, body temperature, air quality (when deep underground), sanity. The world also has improved physics so be careful of collapsing blocks.
This modpack is an assembly and balance of mods designed to complicate living in Minecraft, while still providing you with high-tech gadgets and machines. Its very difficult to fast-track technology as the risks of starvation, dehydration, and heat-stroke/hypothermia put you in a constant battle just to stay alive.
The addition of the quest book into Dangerous Depths is meant to help players new to the survival mechanics, as well as promoting players to explore the landscape looking for things that will unlock new quests. It also aids in introducing players to the basics of several of the more complicated mods the pack uses.
This pack contains Fastcraft, by Player, enabled by default. Fastcraft enhances Minecraft with increased performance. Bug reports being made directly to Mod Authors should state Fastcraft is enabled.
