A Guide for getting the most fun out of Technic But what people do not realise is that anyone can post annonomus editings onto these Wikis and not all the information is correct. Technic is a collection of mods for the game of Minecraft, all rolled up into one "package" and pre-installed so you don't have to deal with the hassels.
A "Technic Build" is one of those "packages"
Okay, so I changed my build... but now it's crashing.Edit
Technic Builds that have ALL the cool new features of the mods you want to play, tend to be what's called "Development Builds". (Dev Builds) You might notice that those different builds tend to crash when you do something simple like sleeping in a bed. To prevent that issue when you first start playing with Technic, the Launcher selects a stable build it calls a "Recommended Build" (Rec Build) instead of the latest Dev Build.
The Rec Build has been tested by many, many people and is considered very stable. It might not have every recipe or the latest version of all the mods in it but the key point is that it's stable and it works. You'll need to choose a build somewhere between the latest and the recommended to do what you want.
How do I know which build has what I want and is the most stable?Edit
The best option is just always use the latest build if you want to tinker around with new stuff. For actual play, however, stick to the recommended build. Technic gives no clue about stability besides those 2 labels.
You could just keep testing them out and try to find a balance you like. At that point though you might as well just mod your own client with the ones you want and hope for the best. Few people will be able to help with a custom build
What is the version that duncan used when he showed you how to install technic launcher in tekkit with duncan part 1?
7.5.1| 1.4.6 | LatestEdit
Newest Dev build - Not meant for normal play
That link is only meant for issues with the mods, Posting bugs about the launcher itself will likely get you banned there. Just like everywhere else, always read Stickies before you post.
