Modpack Information

GATES is a modpack about the exploration of new worlds and dimensions. To help you with this, mods are added that give you a wide range of weapons and technology. This will help you conquer the harsh and unforgiving worlds you will encounter.

In the Stargate series, some aliens were very technologically advanced, the tools they used sometimes seemed magical. To simulate this, there are a number of technological mods and a few magic mods in this modpack.
