Feed The Beast Wiki

The logo used on the subreddit and Discord.

/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.

/r/feedthebeast was originally created by Awade33 in late 2012[1]. It is currently moderated by Awade33, greenphlem, tterrag1098, iDarper, hadn69, and CritFlaw.[2]


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).

Associated subreddits

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[3]. A Test Pack Please Ignore 3 was planned[4], 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"[5]. 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.

/r/feedthebeast's piece of /r/place.

In order to participate in Reddit's April Fools experiment, /r/place, the /r/feedthebeast community created a blue box with a the characters "r/ftb," a Clay Ball and a Dragon Heart under it, near a flag created by /r/ireland[11][12].
