Feed the Beast
Feed the Beast, also known as FTB, originated as a custom challenge map in Minecraft that made heavy use of
multiple tech mods. It played very similar to a type of map known as Sky Block, where the player is started in
a void world with only a small platform, and must overcome a series of challenges. Because FTB included tech
mods, it was possible to use the various custom blocks and items to keep track of the challenges and the player's
progress, as well as automatically give awards after each challenge was met.
The mod pack used for the map then became very popular and soon evolved into many other packs including lite, ultimate and tech world. The Feed the Beast launcher was released in November of 2012 to a livestream of over 9000 people! Since then many youtubers have became involved with Feed the Beast and the community has continued to grow.
