Technic Platform v2 and Technic Launcher v3 Released!

PLEASE BEAR WITH US AS WE SETTLE INTO THE NEW SITE.

We appreciate your patience with the outages. If you have a modpack you curate be sure to edit your modpack on the resources tab to re-apply your art in the new sizes. Your modpack will be artless until you do this.  

 

Welcome to the new Technic Platform.

 

This new site, together with the new Launcher, are more than just a design refresh, it’s a leap forward toward bringing content curators and users together.

 

Now users have the ability to comment, like, follow and post about modpacks. As a modpack owner, you now have the ability to post status updates and news posts to users who are following you.


The Launcher now integrates with the Platform heavily, allowing searching for modpacks within itself, seeing news posts from modpack curators, and lists likes, runs, and installs. Portable mod is back, and we have an actual Mac client for those among us that run Apple. The Launcher also has language support for German, Portuguese (Portugal and Brazil) Chinese (China and Taiwan), Italian, French and English.

We have a vast upgrade to usability, features, information, and tools.  From customizability to interactions with your users to elasticsearch, we hope you enjoy the work we’ve put in to make the Technic Platform look, feel, and most importantly perform well.

TPPI Comes to Technic

 

Many of you have been asking for a more balance-centric mod pack. Too many of you, really. Well guess what -  You’re getting your wish.

We’re very proud to announce that Test Pack Please Ignore (“the Reddit pack”) is now live in the Technic Launcher as an official Technic pack! With a massive mod list and a custom utility mod that tweaks just about everything in the pack, TPPI is a unique play experience that will bring you your precious balance far better than Tekkit can.

We’ve been working tirelessly with the TPPI team for weeks to make this launch happen. They’re some of the hardest-working pack developers out there, so stop by /r/testpackpleaseignore and thank them for allowing us to host this, the delicious fruits of their programming labor.

You can download the TPPI server here: http://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/servers/tppi/TPPIServer-v1.1.2.zip

ConcurrentModificationException in Java 1.8.0_20

This is a warning that a few days ago, a Java update versioned 1.8.0_20 was released, which currently makes it impossible to play modded Minecraft.  The release fixed a Java bug which was hiding a bug in Forge Modloader- users with this new version of java will now receive a ConcurrentModificationException when trying to load modpacks in Minecraft 1.6+.

Forge is currently working to correct this issue, but in the meantime, we advise that you do not update your Java version to 1.8.0_20.  We instead recommend that you use one of the following versions:

Java 1.7.0_67- we highly recommend that you downgrade to this version, because it is security complete: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk7-downloads-1880260.html

Java 1.8.0_11- if you need to stay on java 1.8, this is the latest version without the listed issue.  Again, there may be security updates in 1.8.0_20 not present in this version, so please use with care:  http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-javase8-2177648.html
