/r/feedthebeast (https://www.reddit.com/r/feedthebeast/) is a Reddit subreddit for the Feed The Beast (FTB) and modded Minecraft community. It was created to focus on FTB in particular, but it currently focuses on modded Minecraft in general.
The subreddit focuses on modded Minecraft, including news and discussions on various mods and modpacks. Each week, there is a pinned thread created by AutoModerator cycling between "Tips 'n' Trick" (for sharing tips and tricks), "Work-In-Progress" (for sharing work-in-progress in-game builds) and "Free-For-All" (for questions or sharing, or anything related to modded Minecraft).
Wanting /r/feedthebeast to focus on discussion of mods without being bombarded with server advertisements and users reporting crashes, the moderators of /r/feedthebeast made two new subreddits: /r/feedthebeastservers, for advertising modded servers, and /r/FeedTheBeastCrashes, for getting help with crashes. Other associated subreddits include /r/TestPackPleaseIgnore for Test Pack Please Ignore and /r/AlienMC for AlienMC, although both are inactive.
Test Pack Please Ignore
- Main article: Test Pack Please Ignore
Test Pack Please Ignore was created by and for the /r/feedthebeast community as a GregTech 4-focused modpack and hosted on Feed The Beast (FTB) and Technic for Minecraft 1.6.4. Test Pack Please Ignore 2 was created as a sequel to it just on the FTB Launcher for Minecraft 1.7.10. It was planned to be released on Technic once it went out of beta, but it never did. A Test Pack Please Ignore 3 was planned, but nothing came of it.
AlienMC was a server also created by and for the /r/feedthebeast community for Minecraft 1.7.10. The original server used the Test Pack Please Ignore modpack, but it later restarted and used a custom AlienMC modpack. The server ended up being severed from the community and was rebranded as "Black Sun Network". A new modpack and server called Black Sun was created for Minecraft 1.10, but the server went down and the modpack has been abandon.
