The Magic Farm is a third-party modpack assembled by JadedCat for Minecraft 1.5.2 and hosted within FTB Launcher. This modpack is very different from most of other packs, which has made it relatively popular. Magic Farm requires players to test their skills at staying alive with increased hunger rates and many different food nerfs. This modpack also has increased the difficulty by limiting what the player can and can not do right at the start. Basic tools? Who needs tools... Oh wait, you will. And you'll have to figure out new ways of crafting them.
The main worldgen mod is Biomes O' Plenty. New biomes now exist in the Overworld and Nether. Beyond that, there are several other mods involved that create new ores at all world levels. The NPC villages will have farms with various new plants due to GrowthCraft, HungerOverhaul, and Pam's HarvestCraft. Dotted across the landscape will be new wild plants as well as various new seeds obtainable by cutting down tall grass.
The hunger dynamic is different from what the players are used to: you are getting hungry much faster than usual, and the Vanilla food does not fill as many hunger bars as before. Since the modpack is made to grow crops to make food, it is the food the players creates that fills the most hunger bars. Those new crops mentioned above in villages? Great, great idea.
In version 2.1 of the pack, Mine Fantasy adds a certain difficulty: players need to obtain the correct tools in order to get simple things such as Iron Ingots. Even though this is not a "Tech" pack, some new "machines" are needed to create various things within the World. Don't depend on NEI, as many of the crafting recipes have to be researched on-line.
Version 3+ of the pack replaces Mine Fantasy with Tinker's Construct, another mod where much more than just a basic crafting table is necessary to get you what you need to survive.
Mods (Expirmental Pack Version 4.0)
- Chicken chunks
- TiC Tweeks
- Open blocks - tanks, hang gliders, JadedLadder, flags, trophies, Lightboxes and guideblocks.
Mods (Recommended Pack Version 3.4)
- Magic Farm Balance -- adds machine blade cast for the smeltery. The machine blades are used to replace vanilla tools in Machine Recipes
- Special Mobs -- Evil Mobs
- Deadly World -- More dangers, more fear , more dying.
- Natura -- wild barley and berry bushes are removed
- Tinker's Construct -- Only Wood and Stone tools can be made with the wooden patterns. All other tools require the smeltery and casts.
- JadedLadder -- adds a trapdoor that functions as a ladder when in the up or down position
- Infernal Mobs -- evil fun
- MineFantasy -- Its too difficult to make it compatible with other mods.
- Railcraft -- Does not fit with the direction I want the pack to take. The configs are still in if you want to add it back.
