It breaks my heart to do this.

I’ve made the decision to end development on this modpack. After today, I’ll be stepping down from this. There are a few reasons why I decided to do this including.

  • Family Problems
  • College
  • Too many problems to fix with the pack
  • Lack of popularity

I know that those might sound like Cliched reasons to stop doing something, but I’m standing by them because they’re true.

As for the Facebook Page, I’ll be closing down the Facebook page. This website, however, will remain online as a testament to my love for Minecraft modding and Minecraft as a whole.

It’s been a fun ride, everybody.

Today is a very important day.

Marriage Equality Emblem

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States will begin hearing oral arguments in the Obergefell vs. Hodges case to determine whether or not Same-Sex Marriage is protected under the Constitution or not.

All of us here at Pyritecraft have our fingers crossed and are hoping that the US Supreme Court will settle in favor of Same-Sex Marriage.

Version 3.4 is now live!

After much delay. I am happy to announce that 3.4 of our modpack has been pushed to the Technic Platform and is ready for download!

Delays, Delays, and More Delays.

Hello all,

I want to take some time and explain to you why we haven’t really been too active over the past few weeks.

The main reason behind is the fact that my computer’s hard drive died and, as a result, I lost all of my non-backed up files (including a major portion of the files needed for the next update.) Because of this, Once I get my computer back from Geek Squad, I will have to rebuild the update files from the ground up.

I hope to have my computer back soon.

Thanks for understanding,

RavenholmZombie (Formerly MuscleMan1234)
