So I'm sure this has been asked before but I wasn't sure how to search for it. I've heard people talking about this and I saw the 2 episodes CavemanFilms did on his channel but I don't really know what this is. I've tried googling it but can't seem to get a clear understanding on what exactly Feed The Beast is?

 

Thanks and sorry if the post is redundant,

Naomi

Feed The Beast is two things:

Originally, it was a challenge map that used a bunch of mods. I don't know much more than that, and I've wondered about it myself - the actual origin of the name.

 

Today, it is a collection of modpacks. So it's not really a challenge map anymore. Just modpacks.

The origin of the name was made up by the people who invented the first FTB modpacks, and it is quite a fitting name. The beast is inside of everyone of us, and once you begin to play, you really can't stop playing. I have totally fallen into this trap with the beast needing to be fed often. That is my interpretation, and a widely used interpretation of feed the beast, or FTB.

It's a collection of mods for minecraft. It was made so that players can access all the cool features the mods have without knowing anything about how mods in Minecraft work.
