Minecraft Modpack Update

  • Haven't had a lot of time to work on it the past few days, but I moved back from 1.20 to 1.19 so that I could get three animal mods in: Critters and Companions, Creatures and Beasts, and Zoo Architect

    Unlike Untamed Wilds which tries to kill me every time I spin up a test world, or Naturalist which just has herds of elephants nesting in trees everywhere I look, these three mods - made by the same team - have the spawn rate dialed down far enough that I wasn't sure they were working with all the other mods in place.

    But, well, squirrel. Yes, they're working.

    Also I found another must-have mod called ModernFix which significantly improves load times. I can't run the complete modpack (323 mods total) on my 16GB laptop while I have all my work stuff running and expect a good gaming experience, but it runs fine if I shut a few things down. Without ModernFix it would really grind even if I killed every app in sight.

New and talented vtuber.

And when I say "new" she's been struggling to get noticed for four years before creating a separate account to rant about things - and then that account is the one that finally took off.

That happens a lot.

Also, just noting, Midas sounds like Calli's little sister.  If Calli has a little sister, which she might.
