Installing the modpack

We offer two ways to install and use the ArdaCraft modpack:
  • Launcher - looking for a quick way to join the server? This is the easiest way.
  • Manual - like to take a DIY approach to modding Minecraft? Download our mods and install them yourself
  • Launcher

    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. Run your downloaded launcher You may get a message that says this is not a trusted program, run it anyway.
      • Note that the Launcher will default install to whatever folder the executable is in.
    2. Once it is installed, select the Modpack which you prefer.
    3. The Conquest Reforged launcher DOES NOT include the ArdaCraft Resourcepack Please download it and move it into your installations folder. This will be located at installLocation/instances/ConquestModpackVersion/minecraft/resourcepacks
    1. Log in with your Minecraft account. This process uses the Mojang authentication service and we do not see any of your information.
    1. The launcher may take serveral minutes to download all the needed files depending on your connection.
    2. Once everything is installed Minecraft will start. Your game may freeze on startup and you may have a (not responding) message, this is normal just let it load.
    3. Once you are on the main menu screen, go to Options then Resource Packs... and move the AC_Overlay.zip file above the Conquest Reforged.zip
      • This is what your Resource Packs page should look like:

    1. You now have everything you need to join the server. The IP is mc.ardacraft.me.

    Self-Install

    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 comes with all mods you can install via our launcher, you can pick and choose which ones you want to use with your install.

    1. First install Forge for Minecraft 1.12.2.
    2. Run Minecraft with the Forge profile enabled.
    3. Download Conquest Reforged here
    4. Put the ConquestReforged-mc1.12.2.jar in your Minecraft's mods folder.

    6. Put the OptiFine_1.12.2.jar into your Minecraft's mods folder.
