I'll keep it short, I got bored of Vanilla minecraft about 6-8 months ago, I started playing FTB mods/modpacks because they where the "big thing" at the time, but now, I'm getting bored of them too, so I've decided to revisit "Vanilla" with a few tweaks, that should make the game last longer, this is however; where I need help, I'm starting to make a mod list of what I want, here's what I have so far.
1: Backpacks mod.
2: Mo' Creatures.
3: Biomes O' plenty.
But sadly that's as far, as my lack of good Survival mods takes me, so please give me a few suggestions. Also worth noting, that mods above work for 1.7.2 and below, so I'd prefer if mods suggested where for 1.7.2.
The kind of mods I'm looking for are, more enchantments, more armour (armor), more weapons, more mobs, more bosses, and just overall more things to do.
So, I started playing the Survival Overhaul modpack, and I like it, but one thing, hostile and in fact all Vanilla mobs don't spawn, anyone know a fix? As for the madpack, it's ok, I tuned a few things to my liking in the config file, but what ever I changed made it poop it's self, so I think I'll stick to Survival Overhaul.
