Skyfactory 4 is a modpack for version 1.12.2, loaded with sorcery, automation, and featuring a wide variety of food mods. There are so many mods in this, clocking in at 204 mods, this is sure to keep you and your buddies busy for a long while. Applied Energistics, Astral Sorcery, BiblioCraft, Chisels and Bits, Ender Core, Tinkers Construct, Thermal, and much more.

Plus to keep your server patrons busy, there is a prestige and achievement mode to check up on your progress in the world. You can access that through mod commands. Amazing modpack if you like skyblock adventures, but find vanilla boring when you run out of things to do early on. You definitely won’t have this issue on here.

Why SkyFactory 4

Skyfactory offers endless adventures for you and your server patrons. Our Minecraft server hosting maintains that the modpack is up to date so you never have to worry. Varying from the island you spawn on, to the quests you go on. Want to be a factory creator? Create machines that produce wonders, like energy machines to power your cobble generators. Get to the point that you’re over cobble? Think almost any block in production by the second. Maybe don’t want to go from island to island to get resources, create chests that transfer via signal! Maybe even a jetpack that gets energy wirelessly, and can be powered by battery. Perhaps you do not want to be a technological mastermind. Maybe, you want to be a mystical marvel, a supreme sorcerer of sorts. Progress naturally and have torches placed with your every step. Or wands that defend against high damage blows and fall damage. Remember about going from island to island? Make it easier by getting the Vicio wand and soaring around like the wizard you really are inside


Common Issues:

Missing Mod ID:
Many times with modpacks the server will get stuck in a loading process if the world or mods have been changed. To fix this, simply go to console and type “/fml confirm”.

The world is vanilla:
This often occurs if the world is not properly configured. Ensure that the generator settings and level type are configured as seen above. After it is set, also make sure that a new world is generated and restarted, otherwise it won’t load up the desired world.
