How to Install Modpacks


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!

    You have to sign into a account you used mojang to create witch is very stupid. Just make the pack the last version and say its a update. And you could probally just try using your email instead of your username.

    How to install new modpacks:
    1. Go to Launcher Options.
    2. Click "Change" next to the "Install Folder".
    3. Install the Default Directory in the "Standard Install" tab.
    4. Then you can search for modpacks and install them.
    You're welcome!

    I have tried this every weekend and it doesn't work. Why is it so hard to download a modpack? Why dont you fix this app?

    My anti virus noted that this launcher came with a virus that tracks my computer - maybe this is your endgame ?

    I'm new to tekkit and the technic launcher and i really would like to play on tekkit because i can't install and mods to minecraft as they have "Java errors". The only thing, however is that when i come to download tekkit, it comes to the point where it just says "examining version file" and stays at 0%. I have left it for up to 30 minutes and still no progress. I have signed into to techie launcher with my minecraft account and i have downloaded to the techic launcher. Is there anything else i haven't dowloaded which i should have? It is worth knowing that i do have perennial controls on to stop viruses getting into my mac. i have also installed the right OS X for the techie launcher to operate. PLEASE PLEASE someone help me!!!

    Can not see Discover, Modpacks, nor News and it's not due to my wifi since other games work ^^ (which requires wifi). I have tried reinstalling the technic launcher, I have also deleted the .technic file to install a new one. my Java is updated to the ratest one and am using windows 7

    To paste the link click the search bar (in launcher) and press CTRL+V, After the API link is copied. It is not that hard.
