Modpacks are a great way to spice up your gameplay experience, there are thousands of fun packs out there and many different launchers you can use that allows you to play with ease of access. While modpacks are a lot of fun, some of them can be quite resource-intensive. Many times by default, the launchers will not allocate enough ram to support some of the bigger packs even if your server hosting plan is large enough. Each launcher is slightly different but it’s not difficult to allocate more ram. We will walk you through the process of doing so on some of the main launchers.
Getting the correct version of Java
If you do not have the right version of Java installed, you won’t be able to allocate more than the default amount of ram to the game. If you are wanting to allocate more ram, download Java 8 64 bit first. You can download it here.

Launcher not allowing more than 2gb of ram
If you try to change the allocated amount of ram but it doesn’t show an option over 2gb, this generally means that you do not have the correct version of java installed. You will need to close the launcher and download Java 8 64 bit from here. Once this is installed, if you go back to the launcher it should allow you to allocate more than the default amount of ram.
Game is crashing or not responding
This is generally due to not enough ram being allocated. If you are experiencing a lot of lag in-game or the launcher is freezing/crashing, you will likely need to allocate more ram.
