How to Get Started:


Spawning In:

Skill Book:
Eternal Skills

The other item in your inventory should be the Skill Book, which allows you to choose a class and level up specific skills.


Breaking Trees:
Eternal Trees

When breaking trees, you may also notice that the entire block doesn’t break. You’ll need to break the same block multiple times, which will cause the blocks above to collapse.

Eternal Structure

As you explore, you may also find a multitude of structures. Some may be simple fountains, others may be full towers to climb and conquer for rewards.


Included Mods:

There are many mods included within the pack, but there are a few examples:

Dimensional Doors:
Eternal Dim Doors

As you explore the world, you may notice strange Dimensional Doors across the land, which will lead to pocket dimensions filled with dungeons and traps.

Inventory Pets:
Eternal Inv Pets

The Inventory Pets mod adds an interesting loot mechanic across the world. As long as you can feed them, they grant a large variety of powers.


Eternal BuildCraft

The Buildcraft mod has several uses, such as building quarries to extract ores and blocks for you.

Eternal Thaum

With the Thaumcraft mod, you can extract essence from materials and create miracles and magic.


Ice and Fire:
Eternal Dragons

The Ice and Fire mod adds strong dragons to be fought and tamed. While there are not many variants, there is armor and much more to obtain.

Eternal Biblio

With so many items, a way to organize them will be more than helpful. Thanks to BiblioCraft, you can display your items and tools for aesthetics and easy access.


Eternal Forestry

The Forestry mod focuses on renewable energy, but also the breeding of trees, bees, and butterflies. Offering a large variety of items, there’ll be many options to customize your world.

Electroblob’s Wizardry:
Eternal Wizard

With the Wizardry mod, magic has never been easy. Obtain a wand, collect or purchase spells, then blast your enemies into oblivion.


Notable Dimensions:


Eternal Portal
Eternal Portal

To access The Erebus, you must first build a portal out of stone bricks, then fill the shape with leaves. Once complete, combine a keystone and a staff of Gaea in front of the portal to access the dimension of the arthropods.
Twilight Forest:

Eternal Portal
Eternal Twili

To dive into the Twilight Forest, you’ll first need to make a 2x2 hole filled with water, then surround the outside with flowers. Once done, toss in a diamond, which will activate the portal to the forest dimension. With dungeons, bosses, mazes, and more, the Twilight Forest offers tons of end-game content.
The Betweenlands:

Eternal Portal
Eternal Between

The Betweenlands is a beautiful, yet dangerous dimension. To access it, you must first obtain a swamp talisman. Once in your possession, find a flat area with no important buildings, place a sapling, then use the talisman on it. This will create the portal tree and allow access to the dangerous world.

Eternal Rocket
Eternal Atum

With MC Eternal, accessing the Atum is not as simple as it usually is. Instead, it is only accessible through the Advanced Rocketry mod and space. Once you have a space station and can warp to various locations, the Atum will be accessible


Overall, the MC Eternal modpack is a great option for those who wish to explore the world to find a multitude of buildings and options to become strong. This is a very large modpack and often requires larger amounts of memory to run, so it is recommended to have a strong PC to run this pack as well. Otherwise, there is also an MC Eternal Lite version for use. Whether you focus on creating the strongest tools or aim to gather all of the spells in the Wizardry mod, there is always something to do.

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 MC Eternal 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 MC Eternal through the panel and restarted to load it up.
