Tutorials/Galacticraft Installation Guide

Galacticraft is best when either Basic Components, IndustrialCraft 2 or Thermal Expansion are installed as well (optional).

Use a modpack (automatic installation)

If you do not wish to go through the trouble of manually installing Galacticraft, we recommend you play the GigaTech mod pack, which features Galacticraft, Industrial Craft, Thaumcraft 4, Thermal Expansion and many more mods! (Over 100 mods included).

Manual Installation

You will also need to download:

For Minecraft 1.5.2 or earlier:

  1. Install Forge (Drag the Forge class files into your minecraft.jar).
  2. Drop the Galacticraft jar file into your coremods folder.
  3. If you decided on Basic Components, click the "Load Basic Components" button when it appears after launching Minecraft.
  4. You're done!

For Minecraft 1.6.1 or later:

  1. Install Forge in Minecraft (minecraft.jar don't exist more! Use the Official installer!).
  2. Make a profile to Modded Minecraft!
  3. Drop the Galacticraft jar file into your mods folder in .minecraft or a costumized directory. Note, the coremods folder doesn't exist if you're using Minecraft 1.6.1 or earlier.
  4. Drop the MicdoodleCore jar into the mods folder.
  5. If you decided on Basic Components, click the "Load Basic Components" button when it appears after launching Minecraft.
  6. You're done!
For Non-English: If you use a different language in Minecraft that is not English, Galacticraft will not show the Texts and can crash when you go to Moon/Mars/Space Station.

Moving On

Once you have all of these mod installed and your Minecraft loads up and doesn't crash, you may start your adventure to space!

Read on with the Galacticraft Getting Started Guide to get you started with all the basics.
