What Is the "Minecraft" Technic Launcher?

Technic is an unofficial "Minecraft" launcher that delivers custom content, including gameplay modifications, texture packs and resource packs. As of September 2015, the Technic Launcher's latest version is 4.0.

The launcher connects to the Technic Platform, a repository of modpacks both uploaded by the Technic community and curated by the developers. The client offers popularity rankings, individual update feeds for mods and a browser for discovering new modpacks.

Players download mods from the platform, install them with the launcher and play their modded versions of "Minecraft" through Technic's custom interface. They can also host modded multiplayer servers and synchoronize the required mods with other Technic users connecting to a server.
