The TolkienCraft Modpack
I have a distinct love of all things Tolkien and of course Minecraft. I had originally created what was the first version of my pack back in 1.6.4 of Minecraft as a test and it was nothing more than your traditional modpack.
Then along came 1.7.x and I decided I wanted to see if I could do something different and created TolkienCraft 2 as a fully immersive modpack with quests and housing and custom terrain and map. This was a labor of love for nearly 3 years with most of that time doing this solo. Though this was not a real sequel for my first modpack.
Now here we are in 1.10.x and I am embarking on the true successor to TolkienCraft II. This modpack features a completely custom world to explore that is nearly identical to the Middle-earth you know and love from Tolkien's books.
Gamer, parent, all-around fun guy :D I have always loved playing games and experimenting in new things like web design, domain registrations, coding, building custom computers, etc (yes there is even more I have done). I have been an avid Minecraft player for...5 years now I think (started playing just after 1.2.5 was released) but I do like to play other games mostly in the adventure/simulation/strategy/RPG genres mainly.
Currently I am also one of the founding members of the Society of Squirrels along with ValsNoisyToys, TexCubSF and Goreae, later we invited BVB1979 to join us. It is just a small group of like-minded players who love to play games together.
I have created a few modpacks over time, most notably the TolkienCraft modpacks, but also CivilizationCraft and FallCraft (still a WIP). My general intent in creating is to make something unique and to try to push the limits of the mods I use to make the maps possible; with the TolkienCraft modpack being revolutionary as the very first non adventure mode RPG modpack ever done for Minecraft.
Special thanks to all of the following builders who made such amazing things to help me make this pack and map possible:
