Installing the modpack

We offer two ways to install and use the ArdaCraft modpack:
  • Launcher - looking for the premiere ArdaCraft modpack experience? Try our automated Launcher
  • Manual - like to take a DIY approach to modding Minecraft? Download our mods and install them yourself
  • Launcher

    This is the primary way to install the modpack. The launcher allows for full control of mods, and allows users to pick optional mods they may want to have.

    How to use the launcher:

    1. Download the correct version of the launcher for your operating system. (.exe is for Windows users, and the .jar is for Linux and OSX users)
    2. The launcher will download all needed contents to your Documents folder with the name of ‘ArdaCraft Launcher’
    3. Run the ArdaCraft launcher, and select the ArdaCraft Modpack tab on the left of the program.
    4. Log into your Minecraft Account.
    5. Select your desired optional mods, and click ‘Ok’
    6. The game may take several minutes to start, and your game may freeze. If this happens let it load, and eventually it will go to the main menu.
    7. You will not have the resourcepacks loaded the first time you load the game using the launcher. You will need to enable the resourcepack, and any of the optional mod resourcepacks.
    8. Once everything is setup, log into the server with the ip ‘’


    This is not the recommended way to join the server, but if you are having troubles with either of the two options above, you can install everything yourself. This only comes with the necessary mods to join the server, and does not have the optional mods the launcher comes with.

    How to self-install:

    1. Install the recommended version of Forge for 1.10.2.
    2. Download the zip file.
    3. Drag the zip file’s contents to your .minecraft folder.
    4. Launch Minecraft with the 1.10.2 forge profile enabled.
    5. Connect to the server with the ip ‘’
