My new favourite modpack is Sky Factory - Modded Skyblock
. This is a heavily modded version of skyblock that revolves around the Ex Nihilo mod
and it's companion Ex Alquio
The modpack was created by Bacon Donut
a twitch Minecraft streamer, and has been gaining a lot of popularity on youtube and with streamers on twitch. This is for good reason, as it combines the fun of skyblock with heaps of other mods to enhance the experience. It is really satisfying building every block and creating a world in the void starting from nothing. Bacon Donut is streaming this modpack a lot and if you want to see him playing it, check out his stream.
