SevTech: Ages 1.16.5 of the Sky is a unique mod that actually recreates the galaxy and gives you the chance to live there, mining and harvesting resources and working in teams to complete the quests. This mod is not like any other mod or game out there, in that it actually recreates an entire galaxy, complete with space colonies, moons, planets, space stations, and asteroid belts as well. In fact, the mod is so far advanced that it will even allow you to travel to outer space, and even beyond. The mod is still in its early stages, but it already has enough content to keep players busy for months on end.
There are three factions in this mod, which all have their own specializations. There is the Federation which is represented by the Federation Fleet, which is the flag ship, and there is the Alliance which is represented by the Antivan Class Ship, the class escort ship, and the BSS Spaceborne Transport. As you can tell from the names, each of these has its own specialty which benefits the player’s mining, harvesting, and so forth skills. However, not only are they each balanced out, the types of resources that are returned from each of these tasks also have varying rewards. This adds a whole new dimension to the game, and while it may take some time to get used to, it can definitely be said that the mod is very enjoyable.
What makes this mod so much fun to play is that it takes the age-old “mine, build, fly” formula and spits in a whole new angle. While it is still more than possible to earn more resources, collect more fuel, and so forth, there are a ton of quests to complete as well. What makes this mod so much fun is that all of the crafting recipes are available in mod units and that you don’t have to waste any time finding a trader to transport these resources from one system to the next.
The mod is also free to download. Unlike many modpacks, there is no need to pay up front for the tech you want to use or anything else for that matter. That said, there is definitely a fee associated with this tech, and this fee is understandable considering the number and variety of things this mod can offer the player.
What really makes this mod so exciting is that it actually takes into account the real space physics and does not just pander to the needs of the miners, or the space enthusiasts. This modpack takes the “planetary 1.16.5 landings” part quite seriously and tries to make you feel like you’re part of the action. While at first glance, it might seem silly or clunky, the fact of the matter is that it’s all very well put together. That is, it’s all very polished. If you ever thought there was a chance that a mod pack could combine some of the best things from mods like Minecraft and Age of the galaxy combined, then you have to look no further.
This mod pack is also fully supported, so if there are any bugs or errors, they can be quickly Fixed! It’s also worth mentioning that the modpack has many achievements. These achievements aren’t just listed by the name alone, but they actually show the player’s accomplishments across all levels of the mod, which is a neat touch. That being said, I’d recommend that any player start out by playing through the” Prologue” mod, which is the first area that the player will enter. If you’re having trouble getting started, I’d recommend that you find a good tech modding guide to get you started.
