The Story about LITW Refined modpack
LITW Refined is a Minecraft modpack based on After Humans originally published by Gronkh & Debitor. It is based on Minecraft v1.7.10 and on the Life in the Woods modpack. During the years it got several updated versions on by the community as seperated modpacks, like After Humans Updated or After Humans v1.12.2.
At least that’s the story before I decided to play After Humans myself.
LITW Refined by Pilzinsel64
Me, watching Gronkh’s Let’s Play „Life in the Woods“, were super excited about that After Humans modpack. I stared my own world and my own Let’s Play. I added a few mods due personal choise, made own configurations, updated a lot existing mods and optimized everything to have the best performance and features.
I also use mods from the GTNH team/modpack if possible. I have there the possibility for a lot backported features, fixed bugs and – last but not least – I’m able to do my own customizations to the code and submit as PR.
Now, my modpack isn’t longer the original After Humans modpack. It’s an own modpack that use After Humans and LITW as base. I’m playing it with several friends and have a lot fun and enjoy it. It is now called „Life in the Woods Refined: New Stories“ where „New Stories“ is the extension I added for my private server.
However, I keep all the mods up-to-date. A lot mods are open-source forks by the GTNH team. A few more mods I forked and updated myself to support the most latest Java version and keep 1.7.10 running for ever. To fit our last wishes I made an own mod for our server and keep it also updated. It hat a few blocks and items aswell as a few features to improve general server performance.
The Reason for sticking with Minecraft 1.7.10
But why we are sticking wiht v1.7.10? Well, we do as v1.7.10 has the best mod support and the most and best developed mods. We are using mods from the GTNH modpack to be up-to-date. They also stick with v1.7.10.
You know the problem with updating mods all the time? This is the reason why we don’t do it. Later Minecraft versions hasn’t features we really need or we can’t replace with mod features. Also there are missing some mods or features for mods I personally really like as they are for v1.7.10.
How to Install
The modpack isn’t registred on any Launcher, so you need to create your own Forge Installation. Use the latest available Forge version and install using one of the lot existing Instructuions you can find in the Internet.
After you installed Minecraft profile with Forge, use the Minecraft Modpack Update with this Modpack Config. Start the Modpack Updater, select the Modpack Config and your Minecraft profile folder, click „Install“ and wait. When it’s done, you can start playing!
