So you wake up and you are on top of a tree in a void and you don't know where to start. Remember this is minecraft, first thing open your inventory then you punch a tree, but be careful and thoughtful about your punches. remove as little as possible to get 2 logs. make a crafting table and a crook. punch one more log and place it in the leaves above you to prevent leaf decay and gather the rest of the logs. make slabs and create a platform with the slabs, I usually go bottom slabs to prevent spawning. once you have a platform use the crook to break the leaves. Plant a sapling and twerking and repeat until you have enough wood and silk worms. remember if you make too many slabs but still need planks you can turn slabs back into planks. Make an oak barrel and compost saplings or leaves to make dirt. the grind and expand your platform while your dirt is composting. add more dirt and plant more saplings on the dirt. plant and grow a tree and use a silk worm on the leaves and let them infest the tree. once fulling infested use the crook to break the leaves to get string. now craft a sieve and mesh. start to sieve dirt to get more items. Use the pebbles to make cobblestone and then a furnace so you can make charcoal. make an oak crucible and put leaves/saplings in to get water. make a hammer and break cobblestone to get gravel, gravel to get sand, and sand to get dust. Make the tinkers tables and use gravel to get flint so you can make tinkers tools. use dust in the oak crucible full of water to get clay. you can now make a clay bucket. get two buckets of water to make an infinite water source. Water can allow you to travel below your platform and built lower levels. expand your platform so you can build a dirt area that you can stand 25+ blocks away from. plant so grass seed on your dirt to allow passive mobs to spawn. make sure to light it up or hostile mobs will also spawn. Speaking of hostile mobs. do a similar area for hostile mobs, but remember to design it for hostile mobs. Sieve dust toi get 7 bonemeal or use the mob farm. use dust with oak crucible to get clay and make porcelin to make an unfire crucible, fire it and then place it over a torch. add cobblestone so it will turn into lava. use the lava and water to make a cobble stone generator. This should take you through the wood age.

Stone Age: make yourself the smallest Tinker Smelter and then start smelting cobblestone to make it bigger. I recommend grinding resources to make an auto crusher and an auto sieve powering it with a RFTools coal generator as it makes 60/t and the auto sieve and crusher use 20/t each. using hoppers to move cobblestone from the cobblestone generator straight into the crusher and from the crusher to the sieve and from the sieve to a chest. Auto resourses.

We already talked about the passive mob farm and the hostile mob farm. I put my hostile farm on the lower level. remember to keep feeding your crucible stone to get lava. make a stone barrel and get obsidian to make an enchantment table. now you can enchant your meshes. using sugar cane to get sugar make vector plates to automate your mob farm. this should close out the stone age

then next should be your very basic tier speed up in stone age with ender io conduits, if you got at-least 1 iron and 1 ender pearl from your hostel mob farm you can put this into your smeltery to get your first pulsating iron!! this will increase any very early game automation!! next i'd be using the chicken mod manure to increase any rate on food or your first inferium lvl seed, cause how easy is it just to go to inferium lvl 1 furnace!! and if you start breading chickens i would start using the wood chicken at max 10/10/10 and breed it with any non 10/10/10 to get 9/9/9 chickens at a fast rate!! and make yourself some botania floral fertilizer for easy of access to all the dyes, cause chickens colors are just main gateway to get some of the hard to get tera steel and such ingots!! but by this point power is the most needed thing and your thinking what should you be heading down which direction, answer is solar panels from solar panels reborn!! cost and lag both for server and client is practically 0, cause in this unfinished 1.10 pack chunk boarders can make power items fluids to primarily cause lag and sometimes loss of items!!

Footnotes on SF3. To get wither skeletons you need to make witch water (barrel of water on mycelium, use ancient sores on dirt) put a normal skeleton into the water and it becomes a wither skeleton. Spawners have a set number of spawns before popping, use a drop of evil from a wither skeleton to turn them into resturbed spawns to get around that. block of uranium under your crucible will make it 20x. To get metal ore blocks, use atomic reconstuctor with mining lens, or use chances cubes to make a large chance cube and hope for pillar of ores, chance cubes can be made with lapis. to get to the end use end cake, once you make 1 end cake it will be incomplete and you need to use eyes of ender to fill it up. Environmental tech has harden stone that can be used in place of basalt or alabaster.
