Overview

Within vanilla Minecraft, there may be plenty of exploration, but it is lacking in essence. Throughout the game, there are very few bosses and dungeons that can be faced, primarily revolving around the Nether and The End. Many modpacks sought to improve this by adding new features to find around the world. Introducing Hexxit Updated , a modern remaster of the original Hexxit modpack, which almost doubles the amount of mods and possible gameplay. With Apex Hosting, it is very easy to install this modpack on your server, so today we’ll show you how to do so!
 

What is Hexxit?

Hexxit Updated is a 1.12.2 modpack featuring around 90 mods, some of which bring the nostalgia of the original Hexxit modpack, while some are new. The Hexxit Updated pack is owned by HaoShern on CurseForge and features hand-picked mods to introduce dungeons, exploration, and new dimensions to face bosses. The mod also includes several optimization mods, such as FoamFix, BetterFPS, and Phosphor.

Gameplay

 

How to Get Started

Upon first spawning into the world, it is not much different from normal Minecraft, however there are immediate changes to the world that you may see:
 
Biomes O’ Plenty

HexBOP1
HexBOP2

With Biomes O’ Plenty, it adds a whole selection of new biomes to the world. From the tallest trees, to colorful landscapes, this mod will change how you see biomes forever.
 
Dimensional Doors

HexDimDoor1
HexDimDoor2

As you explore, you may notice a stone structure with a small portal. Careful, these are from the Dimensional Doors mod. The inside is often confusing and full of traps, so the chances of dying are quite high.
 
Battle Towers

HexBattleT
HexBattleT2

Finally, the most notable changes are the Battle Towers that spread throughout the word. These tall structures are full of loot and difficult enemies. You can receive some great early loot, but beware the flood of enemies that may follow!
 

Possible Mobs

As you travel, there are a number of mobs that you may encounter from a variety of different mods. Some of the ones you may find are:
 

Chocobo:
HexChoco

Chocobo are added into the world, based upon the Final Fantasy series. These creatures can be tamed and ridden.

Crab:
HexCrab

Crabs can be found throughout the world, primarily on beaches. They can inflict some damage if too close to them, but do not attack the player directly, even when hit.

 

Blue Slime:
HexSlime

Blue slimes are added to the world, although they can almost always be found on the floating colored islands in the sky. Their slime balls can be used to create slime weapons.

Warclops:
HexClops

The Warclops mob spawns in the overworld. They are aggressive to any player nearby and can deal knockback and slowness when hit by it.

 

Battletower Golem:
HexBattleBoss

A dangerous being that resides at the top of battle towers. They will appear when approaching the tower and will agro once near or when the top chest is opened. They are quite dangerous, so luring them off of the tower is the best option before they can damage any loot.

 

Infernal Mobs:
HexInfernal2

These boss-like creatures can spawn at any time and can be seen through their rainbow-like particle effects. The infernal mobs can have a wide array of powers, from summoning lightning to causing you to drown on land. They can be extremely dangerous, so if you aren’t prepared, try to run the other direction.

 

Notable Dimensions

 
Atum:

HexAtum
HexAtumPortal

The Atum is a sand world filled with animals, enemies, and dungeons. Whether you are taming a camel or facing assassins, you should be prepared before entering this dimension. If that wasn’t enough, there are always several dungeons, ruins, and much more to face. You can even face up against the powerful pharaoh boss battle!

To access the Atum, you will need to build a sandstone structure, fill it with water, then toss in a scarab from the mod’s items.
 
The Aether

HexAether
HexAetherportal

A classic mod, the Aether is a sky world full of wonders and sights to behold. As long as the sun spirit is living, it is always daytime, allowing you to traverse this beautiful world. If you want more of a challenge, the dimension features bronze, silver, and rare gold dungeons to test your strength!

To access the Aether, build a glowstone portal similar to the Nether, then use a water bucket to light it.
 
The Erebus

HexErebus
HexErebusPortal

The Erebus dimension is a close-knit bug world, filled with creatures that would love to snack on you. This dimension has all the materials you would need to survive, so you can theoretically stay as long as you like. But even the passive mods can be harmful, so watch your back!

To access this dimension, you will need an outline of stone bricks filled with leaves, then use a keystone and Staff of Gaea to access the portal.
 
Twilight Forest

HexTwiForest
HexTwiPortal

Another classic mod, the Twilight Forest is trees as far as the eye can see. That’s not all, there are also several structures such as hedge mazes, and even dungeons with strong bosses to face. One of the most well-known and beautiful dimensions, there is plenty to do here.

To access the portal, create a square of 12 flowers or mushrooms, add water in the middle, then toss in a diamond.
 

Conclusion

Overall, the Hexxit Updated modpack is a great option for any player who enjoys exploration and travelling to many different dimensions. Whether you play it to explore or would just like some nostalgia from the original Hexxit modpack, Hexxit Updated is a great option to consider playing. I’ve always enjoyed the Aether and Twilight Forest, so I definitely recommend this personally!
 

Common Issues

I get an error when joining the server:
Often, if a player is unable to join the server, it is because the modpack isn’t properly installed on your own computer. Ensure you are using the official Hexxit Updated modpack to have all of the proper mods installed to join the server.

My server is stuck loading:
This often happens when a mod is removed from an existing world. You can force the world to load by going to the server console and entering /fml confirm. That should then load the world with the missing mods removed.

Modded items aren’t spawning in the server:
If the mods appear in the creative menu but are not properly appearing on the server, it often means the server is not properly using the modpack. Ensure that the server was switched to Hexxit Updated through the panel and restarted to load it up.
