(Some of these steps take a while, while you're waiting for things to load/install you could scroll down to "Choosing an Origin" and start reading through.)
Go to the technic website and scroll down to the green buttons to download the right launcher for your system.
Run the program and click "install".
It opens 2 windows, one is the Technic Launcher Console (keep this open for now, this makes trouble shooting easier), and the other is the Technic Launcher itself, go to the launcher and log in with your Microsoft account, accept the terms if you agree and give access through your firewall if you trust this program. Without it, it can't run.
In the Technic Launcher click on "MODPACKS".
Then click on the searchbar and type "Vanillarite".
Click on Install.
Wait for the download/install to be done, it takes a while.
When the installation is done, the Play button appears, don't click it yet, first we have to give the launcher more ram. Click on "Launcher options".
And then on "JAVA SETTINGS"
Select at least 4 GB, but if your computer can handle it 6GB is reccomended, leave at least 2GB overhead. Over 8GB is not needed. (On the General settings tab you can turn off "show console", don't do this until you're sure you won't need to ask for help. When you do need help, turn this back on and restart before doing so.) Close the options window with the X.
Now you can go ahead and click "Play", and wait for Minecraft to launch. This is modded so its going to be a while, perfect time to start reading up on "Choosing an Origin" below.
Click multiplayer and then add server, add modded.vanillarite.com as the IP and "Best server ever" as the name and click to join.
As soon as you are finally in, you will need to click "Yes" and "Proceed" to restart the launcher. This will only need to be done once per install.
I suggest leaving the console open in the background for your first time playing. If that goes fine its save to turn it off in the settings. Just remember to turn it back on whenever you have issues, and you need help.
When you are fully done and logged in you will be greeted by a screen where you can choose your Origin. Take your time to read through and choose which Origin fits your playstyle best.
