Modpacks

Knowledgebase / Minecraft / Modpacks

One of the best things about Minecraft is that you can customize it past the normal Vanilla Minecraft. In order for you to customize it past the normal gameplay, you will need to use mods. Mods can change the aspect of the game, giving players more options in how they can interact with their world. Many times, players will put together a group of mods with a theme to really enhance their gameplay. In doing this, they are creating a modpack. These modpacks can be found on many websites such as CurseForge and Technic. You can also launch these modpacks from many client-side launchers. While these modpacks are great, creating a server that runs a modpack can be a bit difficult if you do not know what you are doing. This is why at Apex, we have one-click modpack installers for your Minecraft Server. These modpacks allow you to install it easily onto your server, allowing you to play your modpack with friends easier than ever before. Every modpack is unique in their own way and can be confusing at first to understand how to play it. This is why we have a knowledgebase full of tutorials on how you can install the modpacks and how you can use them. Every modpack we have listed is on our panel for a one-click install as well.
