The new pack has most of the stuff you're used to from Tekkit, plus a heck of a lot more. We'll now have access to nearly 100 more mods, plus the new pack operates on Minecraft 1.7.10 with all its various biomes, trees, animals, and blocks, not to mention that the Biomes O Plenty pack will be active, with an additional 80 more biomes to explore, full of new building materials and resources!
