Installing a Modpack using the Twitch launcher (Recommended for beginners)
When it comes to where you download your Modpack from, there’s several sources you can choose from such as Curseforge directly, Technic Launcher, Voidswrath, MultiMC and others, we’ll be recommending you first install a Modpack using the Twitch Launcher as it has some of the most popular packs available and tends to be quite user friendly for beginners.

Once you’ve signed into Twitch head over to the mods tab at the top and click on Minecraft.
Click “Browse Modpacks” and from there, you need to search for the Modpack you want to install.
