The lead of the Feed-The-Beast team and the lead of the Forge API have announced a partnership with Curse and CurseForge as the official hosting platform for Forge mods and FTB Mod Packs, as well as integrating FTB packs, mod installation, and mod pack creation into a new version of the Curse Client!

Slowpoke said:

This is a short post that is being made in order to announce that an agreement has been reached to form a partnership between Minecraft Forge, FTB and Curse. The main focus of this deal will be for members of all teams to come together to continue to develop CurseForge into a platform designed to become the number one place for the distribution of mods. It will also be the goal to develop and release a completely new mod installer under the Curse name that will tap into CurseForge.

Whilst this partnership will involve several major changes to both Forge and FTB, it should be noted that the ownership of Forge and FTB will remain in their current hands. Having said that, there are several changes that affect both communities that we wish to make in order to help facilitate the main goals of our objective.

This will be a good change, if done right, but I wish that the Technic Platform was in with this too, I like their modpacks better than FTB. I like the change in the fact that all the mods will be in the same place.

I think that it would be really good for everyone to find all the packs in the same spot.

That's the Pocket Edition, it doesn't have nearly as many features as the PC edition. There are mods for Minecraft PE but they're different to those for the PC because Minecraft PC and Minecraft PE are coded in different programming languages. As Minecraft PC is the "main" Minecraft version, any news that is not specifically labelled "Minecraft PE" or "Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition" or whatever is likely to be about the PC version.

People need to make money, but at least they do it via ads rather than charging for mods. There are ads everywhere on the internet and they're preferable to having to pay for everything.

Back on topic, I play Minecraft unmodded but this change sounds useful for people who do install mods.

I am fine with this as long as I don't have to listen to jadedcat speak. Other than that, this works for me.

You do not like Jaded's voice? I'm fine with it - when she doesn't destroy Youtube's ears when squealing on cam. :P

I don't mind her speech impediment, it's the fact that even on the lowest volume settings, she sounds like she is speaking through a megaphone that amplifies her voice to an11.

Oh hell no. The last thing we need is crappy Curse getting their hands deeper into Minecraft. Everything works just fine as it is.Talk about poaching off of others successes. The end is nigh :P Hopefully, Mojang will get off of their butts and make the dang Mod API and we can end this nonsense.

Forge > modloader > mods themselves > FTB franchise > Slowpoke > Curse....

Business is business as always...For better or worst. Besides, even if Curse royally burns all the mods that rely on Forge, at least we'll have the MCP at our disposal.

Boy.. And to think I said "There goes the Neighborhood" when curse dug it's infected claws into the Minecraft forums.
Great.. Now the rotten stink of Curse is trying to creep all over my favorite modpack provider...
While I understand why FTB crew THINKS this might be a good idea... They obviously haven't been dealing with this horrid company as long as I have.

If they mods are easier to install, I like it. It gets boring going to my friends house and installing mods for them, because they have no knowledge of it.
