The Modding Trials was a competition hosted by TheCodedOne, Prospector, Darkhax, Rushmead, TheRealp455w0rd, iLexiconn and many other volunteers, that tasked participants to create a mod over a 4 day period. It was designed as spiritual successor to ModJam 4.

The Modding Trials was considered by many of its creators and participants to be partially unsuccessful for varying reasons. The Radio Mod, created by RazzleberryFox, ProfMobius, sekwah41 and GoblinBob, was not added to the voter form until a day after voting started due to a miscommunication. Additionally, some votes were accidentally deleted due an accident with querying the database. There was a server created for mod authors to showcase their creations, but it had several issues due to having few resources and using the contest's many experimental mods, and was forced to be shut down. After the results of the competition were released, they were taken down due to the mod author of the Lawnmower mod withdrawing. This was because the mod was created as a joke mod, but it won the most votes. The mod author, iLexiconn, was part of the team in charge of the competition, but they left the team after withdrawing their mod[1].

Despite its controversies, plenty of the mods released were successful past the competition. Literal Ascension was updated past the competition and was included in several large modpacks, including SkyFactory 3. Other successful mods include Refraction and Tesla Essentials.

The Modding Trials was spiritually succeeded by ModOff, another competition, designed to overcome some of the issues in The Modding Trials.
