What would you build in Minecraft if you weren’t bound to the ground by gravity? You’ve probably heard about the ability to fly while playing Minecraft, but you’ve also heard that it includes the hefty baggage of learning how to install client mods and rummaging through the Minecraft forums for the download links. Not anymore. For those of you interested, here is an easy solution that will automatically install some of the best Minecraft mods including flight with no modding experience necessary. Welcome to the VoxelModPack.

- An overview of some great features enabled by this modpack.
Setting up the VoxelModPack
Things you’ll need:
- Minecraft downloaded and installed on your computer
- An internet connection
Note: This modpack may encounter installation problems if your Minecraft client is already heavily modified. It also seems to have some compatibility issues with the Aether mod.
Make sure your copy of Minecraft is fully up to date. Open the Minecraft Launcher and go to Options > Force update! Once this is done, login with your username and password and complete a full update.
Completely exit Minecraft. Mods cannot be installed while the game is running.
Download the VoxelModPack. The link below will take you to the download page, note that the download file is the same whether you are on Windows, Mac, or Linux.
Right-click the downloaded file and select Extract All..
Open the newly extracted folder and open up ModPack Installer Windows.*
*If you are on Mac or Linux, use ModPack Installer Not Windows.
The VoxelModPack Installer should launch. Just click Next unless you are an advanced user.
On the next screen you can unselect mods that you don’t want. Generally, you are fine leaving this as it is with all of them checked, but go ahead and read through each mod because there is useful control information displayed each time you select one.
If everything works, you’ll see a window like the one below. Along with the “Finished!” line at the very end.
Done! …But wait, there’s more!
Now your copy of Minecraft is ready to groove. You can fly through the air (and walls on single player), spawn unlimited items, adjust brightness, freeze the time of day, manage your server list, enjoy better graphics and skins, and a few other goodies. But, there are many more features included with the Zombe pack that was installed other than just flying and sun control. Plus, we can make the flying and running speeds even faster!
Adjusting Fly Speed and Other Mod Extras
To enable/adjust more features, go to your up your %appdata%/roaming/.minecraft/mods/zombe folder and open up config.txt.
This txt file is long, but it controls the configuration of the entire Zombe mod that was installed. You can enable multiple different features here such as compass, recipes, mobspawn control, classic build mode, and others.
To get started, let’s adjust your player running speed and flying speed. These are on the following lines:
*To quickly find these you can copy their name and use the Ctrl+F search feature in notepad.
- # Running speed multiplier – This is how fast you’ll run when you hit shift while walking on the ground.
- # Movement speed multiplier – This is how fast you’ll fly when you hit shift while flying.
- # Vertical movement speed – This is how fast you’ll fly up or down using the Q and E keys.
Note: The maximum allowed speed multiplier on the Voxel Box (the server hosting this modpack) is 4.
To adjust the speed, just adjust the number after the “=” sign. Default is set to 4, and you can go anywhere as high as 10 –which is so fast that it might cause both server and client lag. Of course, these speeds will only take effect while holding the Shift key.
To enable a feature, look for the enabled line at the beginning of each mod section. Simply remove the “#” symbol next to that line to enable it (and make sure it says yes after the “=”).
Spawn Unlimited of Any Block – TooManyItems Mod
You can literally spawn as many block or items in the game as you need with this handy graphical interface that’s included in the modpack. This particular mod also includes the feature of saving entire inventory loads to switch quickly back and forth without manually emptying and refilling your entire backpack.
Change Texture Packs In-Game
Tired of quitting out to just change a texture? This modpack adds a new option to your ESC menu that allows you to Select a Texture Pack while playing.
5 New Texture Packs Included
The Voxel Box community put together 5 complete texture packs and this modpack includes and installs the latest version of them.

What do you think? Do these features sound groovy? Okay, what about just a few of them? Either way, during installation you can selectively choose which ones you want, or don’t want with just a few clicks from the installer.
Overall, using this modpack is the easiest and fastest way to install some of the most essential mods for your Minecraft experience. Also, since you don’t have to install them all – you can still keep your game “legit” by forfeiting installation of mods that contradict your play style.

Hey! Thanks, I really apreciated this, and it help alot!
So I’ve played with Minecraft but perhaps I just don’t get it. I can’t seem to get “into it….”. I must be missing something.
I discovered Minecraft in school. It’s an amazing design tool. Very addicting.
Nice tutorial for using my Modpack. If you make a few revisions, I may put link to it on the download page.
Does it work in multiplayer?
It is designed specifically for multiplayer.
So i in multyplayer i can too many items??!!! :D
Only if the server has bukkit installed.
My .minecraft folder is not on the administrator, but when I run the one for Windows (I have Windows 7), it only tries to find the .minecraft folder for the administrator, and fails. I tried everything! I suck at computers, so I couldn’t fix this myself. Help?
Thats soo cool :DD

Thanks for any other informative website. The place else may just I am getting that kind of information written in such a perfect way? I’ve a mission that I’m just now operating on, and I have been on the look out for such info.
I tried installing it on Minecraft 1.1, it says it’s updated. Deleted my entire .minecraft and tried installing it, no errors occur at this point. I open up Minecraft and all I get is a black screen, I tried both installers, check ALL the boxes, including the ones that say “Reset Zombe’s modback config” or whatever and it still doesn’t work! I don’t get any errors, I have a terrible computer so maybe it just takes a LOOOONG time to load up but if anyone has any suggestions can you help me out?

Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and I am inspired! Very useful info specially the remaining phase :) I care for such information a lot. I used to be seeking this certain information for a long time. Thanks and good luck.
ummm does this come with worldedit?
Nope. It does include the WorldEdit UI for servers running WorldEdit though.
If you want WorldEdit for single player you’ll need the SPC mod found here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/94310-142-single-player-commands-v42-official-download-spc/
However, SPC is only availble for version 1.4.2 and will not work with the latest Minecraft update 1.4.4.
But, there is an experimental version available that should work with 1.4.4 but it may have a couple bugs. You can get it here: http://build.sk89q.com/job/WorldEdit/lastSuccessfulBuild/?
On this server I play on, it won’t work. It shows up, but when I try to put something into my inventory, it says you do not have acces to that command. How do I fix this?
Also, how do I fly with this mod?
