Once you've got yourself a handle on several of the more common mods and want to ramp up the difficulty, then try GWSheridan's Forever Stranded. Inspired by an older modpack named Crash Landing, it casts you as the sole survivor of a shuttle crash in a hostile desert bereft of resources. Like Sky Factory, that means building up a resource ecosystem from nothing.

Once you've built up some defences, however, you'll find things begin to get easier, with a fantastic blend of technology and survival challenges to tackle.
