Ex Astris

Do you love SkyBlock? Do you love mods too? Then Ex Astris is the mod that will help you bring your mods to your SkyBlock.

Originally known as Ex Aliquo, it was moved to 1.7.10 by LoveHoly. Now, the reigns have been passed on to me.


The config file has been overhauled in version 1.13. Please delete and re-create the configuration file ExAstris.cfg. While changing the config is never something I like to do, trust me when I say this one is way more manageable and expandable.


Ex Astris currently adds support for:

  • BigReactors - Yellorite can be obtained from sifting
  • Blood Magic - Allows the "creation" of nether stars
  • Metallurgy - Ores can be obtained via sifting
  • MineFactory Reloaded - Rubber Tree Sapling can be obtained from sifting, Rubber Tree Saplings/Leaves can be composted.
  • Natura - Saplings and Berry Bushes can be obtained from sifting.
  • Redstone Arsenal - A brand new RF Hammer!
  • Tinkers Construct - OreBerry bushes can be obtained from sifting. Two new modifiers!
  • Tinkers Steelworks - Ex Nihilo dusts can be used in the High Oven
  • Thaumcraft - Shards can be obtained via hammering. New mob spawning dolls. Thaumium Hammer and Barrel.
  • Thermal Expansion

Thaumcraft Shards can be obtained by Hammering Grass, Double Sandstone Slabs, Nether Brick, Double Stone Slabs, Ice and TNT.

Two new Tinkers Construct modifiers are added: "Hammered" - makes the tool act like an Ex Nihilo hammer, and "Crooked" - makes the tool act like an Ex Nihilo crook. Get these by using a Diamond Hammer or a Bone Crook as modifiers.

The Automatic Sieve has also been added. Takes RF to do your sifting, and can be upgraded to run faster, and also have an effective "Fortune" modifier, at the cost of more power.


Please report all bugs and suggestions to my GitHub page: https://github.com/MikeLydeamore/Ex-Astris/issues. I will still be checking the LoveHoly repository, but it is more reliable to utilise the new fork. Please include a crash report, and steps to reproduce the problem.

Mod Packs

As per LoveHoly's original license (and mine also) you are 100% free to include this in any modpack. I would appreciate knowing if you do, however, this is not a requirement.
