In this article, you will learn how to install the Technic Launcher for Minecraft; which is a free download and is safe to use. All you need is a valid Minecraft account and a PC running Windows or a Mac. Linux is also supported if you are so inclined.
Once you have downloaded it, find the downloaded file. Should be called ‘TechnicLauncher.jar’ and be in your Downloads directory on both Windows and Mac. Double-click the file to launch it and install using the default settings.
Then, login using your Minecraft username and password. (newer Minecraft accounts may require you to use your email address as your username)
Once you login to the launcher, it will open and you can navigate to the Modpacks tab at the top of the launcher by clicking on it.
In the search box in the upper left, you can look for packs by name or by metadata. For instance, when I type the word Alien into the search box we can see the top 3 mod packs with Alien content (all three are made by me btw).
Select the pack you want and click the Install icon on the lower right. In this case, I picked Prometheus Rising; which is a space horror adventure experience set 54 years after the movie Prometheus. I recently remastered it in expectation for Alien: Covenant being released May 19th.
Once the pack is installed, click the Play button on the lower right of the launcher and enjoy.
Sorry for the frequent updates lately, but thanks for the feedback so that I can squash bugs quickly, add content and balance/tweak the experience.
Xenomorph drones will now spawn in underground cave systems as well as Engineers and Space Jockey spawns underground being improved.
Lithium, Silicon and Diamond spawn frequency increased. Careful for the baddies while mining!
Updated to version 015. Lakes will no longer generate in previously explored chunks. Sky Stone can now be formed on a crafting table from Sky Stone Dust. Mobs should no longer spawn in lit bases.
Added the Goo Mutant spawn to Varda Forest biomes. Trilobites will no longer spawn in Varda Forest biomes because they are getting caught up in alien trees.
Thanks to ‘Dave’ for reporting the problem with too many spawns/entities. I made some changes in version 013 that should improve things.
Downloadable server version as well. Tell your friends about Prometheus Rising and please ‘like’ (+1) the modpack on Technic.
I just released version 012, which makes the monster spawns much more consistent. Engineers and Yautja spawn in the cave systems. There is more iron and diamond to be found while mining below ground. Deacon Sharks once again spawn underwater and as you walk away from world spawn, spawn rates of creatures will be more consistent.

Happy Friday everyone. Prometheus Rising v011 makes use of the newest AVP code, has many bug fixes, new monsters such as the Aethon and much improved world generation. There is more food available in the beginning and some other user feedback integrated into this version as well as fixes to quest lines.
Ri5ux and CyberCat5555 have been working really hard on AVP mod and you can see a lot of this work in this remastered edition of Prometheus Rising.
There is a downloadable server at the link above which will allow you to play with your friends.
In this terrifying sci-fi horror adventure set in the Aliens vs Predator Universe, you play as a civilian scientist on a mission to discover the fate of the USCSS Prometheus and her crew. Upon waking from cryosleep, you and your crew find yourself scrambling for your life as your own spaceship is shot out of the sky. Survive on the moon LV-223 Varda from the movie Prometheus with your friends in multi-player or alone in single-player. Use science to unlock the secrets of Colonial Marine, Predator, Engineer and Alien technology. Research the Assembler and locate Yautja Artifacts that will allow you to create Predator armor which allows you to see in thermal and electromagnetic spectrum. Wear Alien armor that allows you to scale vertical surfaces like an actual Xenomorph. Use science and the power of your mind to research and design your own custom spaceship to escape the hostile world.

It has been a year since I updated Dev_ill’s Modernized for Minecraft. Dev_ill is my son and his mod pack focuses on modern architecture, vehicles, decorations, furniture, security systems, cooking, painting, sculpting and is intended to be played in creative mode.
A 128×128 modern texture pack is included with many gorgeous post processing effects.
It now has a downloadable server as well. Get Dev_ill’s Modernized at: http://www.technicpack.net/modpack/dev-ills-modernized.615942
If you want to play 7 DayZ to Mine with these hybrid graphics, using 2d light maps and post processing effects- which can run on even slower computers, get it here> http://www.technicpack.net/modpack/7-dayz-to-mine.621982
This video simply shows you what the new update to 7 DayZ to Mine looks and feels like. In the first couple of minutes we fight an Undead Firemen protecting a Fire Station, tons of day walkers and some zombie construction workers while spelunking.
