The biggest problem people have when they first start playing modded Minecraft is that there's no clear choice for which modpack to play. Learning the mods requires scouring online wikis and guides, and watching videos.
FTB Academy aims to fix that problem. It is designed especially for people that have never played with mods. The modpack has over 300 quests to walk you through each step of the progression of the most common mods, and nearly 100 pages of Guides to give a more in-depth explanation for what needs it, so you don't have to go searching through wikis.
Players will spawn in school structure, where they will follow quests and in-world images to learn modded concepts like automation, technology, and magic. Once this tutorial area has been completed, you will be teleported to the Overworld to begin playing properly.
FTB Academy has no changed recipes and no altered progression, aside from the school, in order to accurately represent the average modpack.
FTB Academy is currently in public beta, which allows us to make large changes to the modpack that we wouldn't be able to in a full release version.
Any issues or suggestions for the modpack should be posted in the issue tracker.
FTB Academy has complete localization support. If you wish to contribute by translating the quests or the guide, visit the modpack's Github page.
