The idea for Zyrule was originally conceptualized in early 2018 as Dwarf Fortress in Minecraft. I tested some things out, and due to heavy player request, the pack became moreso about magic. To put it simply, my original image for Zyrule was tainted and ended up catering to a very specific community. I wanted to fix that problem with the release of Zyrule: Redux. This modpack aims to fulfill a more vague theme of mining. The mods I've included assist in exploration (both underground and aboveground) as well as base-building.
I don't plan on creating a server for Zyrule: Redux because 1.12.2 servers aren't really in my knowledge bank, as well as the fact that the pack might not run too well on a server. It would be too expensive to run a server for the pack unless I knew that there was enough demand for it, meaning enough players that could help financially support the network in paying a host. Until the day comes (if it does) that I feel that an official server is needed for the pack, you're welcome to host your own or contact a host to do so.
