First Steps

You’ll need to build a modpack before we can host it.
We recommend picking your favourite modded Minecraft launcher, choosing a Minecraft version and researching the mods that you like before adding everything you want to the pack.

Load it up

Always run your pack before you send it over to us.
Making sure it loads and generates new worlds correctly means more time for you and your friends to play on the server.

Send it over

For us to add your modpack to your server, you’ll need to compress it into a zip archive and generate a link with a file sharing service.
Try these: Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive.
Once you have sent us the link for the zipped files we can add them to your server.

Invite your Friends

Don’t forget to send the zipped files to your friends too. They can download and install the pack while we upload it onto your server.
Any changes you make to the pack will need to be added to the server and your friends packs too.

First Delivery

From the moment we receive your files, we already have technical experts and support staff running checks on the pack and how it runs. Automated systems work alongside human beings to spot and prevent bugs, stop and fix crashes and any other issues.

Just Checking in
