About The Modpack

General Info

The DiggyVerse modpack contains around 80 awesome mods, 
including 5 developed exclusively for the modpack!

DiggyVerse started out as a Minecraft 1.6.4 modpack in 2014,
with the final version based on  Minecraft 1.7.10 released in 2016. 


The aim was to enhance vanilla and add a little magic rather than drastically changing game play, with exclusive foods, mobs, animals, biomes and tons more! 

Unlike most modpacks you wont find complex machines here, but you will discover a truly unique modpack. It has familiar mods such Thaumcraft, Railcraft, Metallurgy & Aquaculture but also a variety of lesser known and even completely exclusive ones. Over 1000 custom tweaks are also included which add a variety of cross-mod recipes and much more.

Be prepared to encounter strange new things that you've never seen before!

Add DiggyVerse to your Technic Launcher
by visiting the official Technic Platform page:

DiggyVerse on Technic Platform

Note: We recommend changing the launchers memory to 1.5-2.0 GB.


It's also worth remembering that with Java programs (like Minecraft) more memory does not always give better performance, changing the memory to a value larger than 2.0GB can actually have the opposite effect due to the way it is managed.

You can change the amount of memory by clicking "Launcher Options" in the top right corner, then clicking on the "Java Settings" tab and selecting a new value from the "Memory" drop down.

For the best player experience we strongly recommend 
using the official texture pack!



Official Texture Pack (64x)

The DiggyVerse modpack/server has an official 64x texture pack,
it is based on the Sphax PureBDcraft texture pack and must be
downloaded in two parts as per the instructions below.

NOTE: 


When adding the resource packs ensure that the DiggyVerse patch is at the top of the list (as in the image below), otherwise you will not see some of the customised textures.



The official DiggyVerse texture pack patch for Sphax PureBDcraft is available from:

The Sphax PureBDcraft vanilla pack (1.7.10) is available from:

Improving performance

The modpack includes the BetterFPS mod, if you're experiencing low FPS you may want to try loading a different algorithm by using F12.

For most players the default Riven's "Full" algorithm should give the best performance, however certain graphics cards respond better to other options, such as Riven's "Half" algorithm.

The modpack also supports OptiFine, but when using it BetterFPS should generally be disabled by setting it to "Vanilla Algorithm" for best results.

Optifine

The DiggyVerse modpack fully supports OptiFine, however the
mod author does not allow inclusion in modpack downloads.

For this reason the mod must be downloaded separately and
installed manually, it's very easy to do though!

How to get and install these mods:

Only the following version is supported, using a different 
version may result in unexpected behaviour / bugs...

Step 1: Download the mod using the link/s below:

OptiFine (1.2 MB):

Note: This is the official adf.ly link, profits from this link go to the mod author.

This can be found at:

Linux: home/.technic/modpacks/diggyverse/mods
Windows: C:\Users\[user]\AppData\.technic\modpacks\diggyverse\mods
Or: C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\.technic\modpacks\diggyverse\mods

Note: You will need to copy these mod back into the mod folder
after doing a client update so keep a copy handy!

Optifine does not always improve performance and in some cases
may have the opposite effect, see what works best for you!
