Here are the two ways that you can install a modpack on the Technic Launcher.
1. Search For It
The search bar on the left side of the launcher can be used to find the packs your heart desires. Just put a single term and the best packs of the platform that match will be brought to your launcher. Don't see what you want? Click the "Find more" link at the bottom to see more results, and use the second installation method.
2. Install From the Platform
Just about anything can be put into the search bar, and the launcher will do its absolute best to turn that into an installed pack. Got a Platform API link? That'll work. You can copy the Platform API link to your clipboard by clinking on "Install this modpack" on the modpack Platform page. Then paste the URL into the Launcher's search bar. Almost anything will work, and we hope you'll use this advice to try out lots of packs you haven't seen before.
Have you seen Trending Modpacks? You can see it by selecting Browse Modpacks from the Discover menu at the top of the Platform, and it's a great way to discover cool packs you haven't heard of before. It changes all the time!
this doesnt work
you made this were hard to play.... i cant get new games to it and the old was better than this. :-(
Really? Adding modpacks is now broken because of removal of the "Add New Modpack" button. I mean REALLY why remove it?
TOTALLY agree with Glitchery. I had to reload the game and can't because it's not on your list and there's no "Add New Modpack" button any more. Could you PLEASE fix this issue soon. I'd like to go back to playing.
I can't download it, whats going on!? :'(
Ok, I can copy, WHERE do I paste!!!!
umm I paste it but it wants the api I put the one it gave me and it said it was the wrong one how do I find the one for the mod pack!!!!!
copy the URL to your clipboard and press 'control + V' to paste it onto the box that says add mudpack then click install modpack. this is for windows btw. :)
this fucking sucks, I have been sitting here for over a half an hour and STILL NO MODPACK. PLEASE FIX THIS.... Until this shit is repaired or there is a add modpack button, I am playing ftb because this is just wasting my time
i try to search but nothing appears
This sucks. CHANGE IT BACK NOW!
The old was WAY better.
http://www.feed-the-beast.com/launcher Here, something way better then this CRAP.
This isn't helping. I can find the modpack I want, but when i click the button that clearly says "install," it doesn't do a thing. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling 2 times now, and it hasn't worked. I've tried turning off my computer and turning it back on again, and that doesn't work. I've searched the problem, and everything I find says to just give up on Technic. I love Technic and all, but it was WAY better before. I hope you can get this probem fixed soon because, for now, I'm going to use something else.
Total waste of time coming to this. No help. Big whoop! There is only one install option, and you can only get the "Most Popular" Packs that indeed are game crashingly amazing! FIX PLEASE! Put the beloved "Add Modpack Button" back on the launcher. PLEASE! This website is useless without it!
Got off work and decided I would relax by playing Hexxit and storming a Walker castle. Apparently the Technic Launcher had an update and Hexxit will not play. Thanks guys for fixing something that wasn't broken... AND BREAKING IT. Going to bed now, but maybe I'll spend a couple hours tomorrow discussing with Technic Support on how to fix the problem that you guys made.
this dose not even help i havent been able to play with mod packs for 1 and a hath mounths
the old version was 1000000000 times better. Why? because w/ the old launcher you could ACTUALLY INSTALL THE MOD PACKS but with this version u can only copy the url but u cant add it, #bring back the old launcher
unless our ok w/ only playing the default modpacks, don't download this launcher it wont let you add new modpacks. and I triple checked cant find the add mudpack button!! screw this, i'm playing ftb #bringbacktheoldlauncher
the old launcher was alot better, when I try to install it doesn't do anything but when I click the ones with pictures (Most popular ones) it works.
For windows users If you are having issues installing anything try right clicking on your technic launcher and then left click run as administrator. This solved my problem with not being able to download anything.
My keeps saying broken api link...
this site used to be sooo good now i cant play any modpacks at all and i worked so hard to get my hexxit world to where it was what a shame.
Need I add more? just count +1 to the list of anoyed by the new shitaform
so i did the ctrl + v and it worked but... it says its a broken api link... WHAAAAATT GUYS IF YOU HAD A GOOD LAUCHER WHY UPDATE IT TO GET IT EVEN MORE BROKEN!
I found out how to do it!
Step 1: Find the modpack that you want
Step 2: Copy it to the clipboard
Step 3: Go to the launcher
Step 4: Press the modpack button on the top right
Step 5: Click on add pack on the top right
Step 6: Press ctrl and v at the same time
Step 7: Press install
(I don't know if this process will work with other players but it worked for me :P)
I can't find he modpack button on the top right! I'm so frustrated right now....
I don't think you can even update modpacks anymore. That's how shit this new system really is.
