I have a modpack that you don't have on your list, can I use it?

We are always adding modpacks, so if you have a modpack that we don't have, pop a link with the files over to us and we can add it to our 1-click installer. However sometimes modpacks may not work if they don't have the correct server files.

We suggest using 3GB+ Memory (Gold Tier) for any modpack. This can be upgraded or downgraded at anytime.
