Minecraft Modpack Mayhem

So I added in Create, and Create: Steam and Rails, and Botania, and Graveyards, and When Dungeons Arise, and Born in Chaos, and my modpack still loads and plays fine on my work laptop.

Looks like it's using a maximum of 6GB of RAM.  This is only a problem for me because the stuff normally running on this laptop uses about 14GB, so if I don't shut all of that down first it grinds to a halt.  If your computer isn't filled with junk, 16GB should be fine.

So time to stop adding stuff and start tweaking.  The spawn rate for When Dungeons Arise is far too high, for example; in the last three tests I've had "dungeons" show up that are visible from the spawn point, and one time I had three of them.

There's a lot more but I want to leave some of it as a surprise.  Though when I publish the modpack you'll just be able to look it up anyway.

Update: Hmm.  It's using 4049MB out of the 4096MB default heap.  That's not going to be very stable - it's already broken on me once - so a couple of things need to go.

Which reminds me of the most important mod of all: Ferrite Core, which reduces memory usage by about 40%.

I'm making a clean rebuild and so far it's using 2.6GB out of 4GB of heap.  I've removed Naturalist, Born in Chaos, and When Dungeons Arise for now, each for different reasons.
