Importing Instances allows users to import a zipped modpack.
How to Import
When creating a new instance, select the second option to Import Modpack (local file or link). The text bow accepts a link where the modpack can be downloaded, or a local system path where the modpack is stored. You can use the button to the right side of the text box to find the modpack on the local system.
Alternatively, you can drag&drop the modpack on top of the main window.
Currently, you can import:
- Modpacks (instances) that were originally exported by MultiMC
- Curse modpacks (download the modpack zip from a curse website, then import)
What is required to Import
The main component of a modpack is the /minecraft folder. This is where all of the basic files are located including options.txt, saves and resourcepacks. Optionally, users can add custom instance versions in the /patches folder and jarmods in the /jarmods folder. These are the only folders that are allowed outside of the /minecraft folder.
Any mods that a modpack created could want can be placed inside the /minecraft/mods folder and their respective configs can be placed in the /minecraft/config folder.
Future of Imports
Importing will be expanded upon in the future to allow for importing of modpacks from other Minecraft launchers:
- Vanilla Launcher
- FTB Launcher
- Technic Launcher
