This guide is a step-by-step method for creating a custom modpack with the CurseForge Launcher and getting it running on your StickyPiston server.

How to Create a Custom Profile in the CurseForge Launcher

These steps will get you set up with a profile that you can use to experiment with your modpack.

  1. Open the CurseForge Launcher, if you have not installed the launcher follow this guide.
  2. Click on Minecraft.
    Minecraft Game Selection
  3. Click on Create Custom Profile.
    The 'Create Custom Profile' button
  4. Choose a name for your Profile (This can be changed later on).
  5. Choose a Minecraft version. This is important as the mods you will want to be playing with will need to work with the version you select. So spend some time to make sure you pick the right version for what mods you want.
  6. Choose a ModLoader Version (This will always be Forge but you will have to pick which version you need. We recommend the newest version whenever possible).
