Enigmatica 2: Expert - Extended


Enigmatica 2: Expert - Extended is unofficial continuation of Enigmatica 2: Expert

The aim of the addon is to make E2E even more interesting and challenging. Balance it out as much as possible, but leave the most interesting stuff untouched.



Here are +200 up-to-date 1.12.2 mods (about 400 total).
Despite this, the modpack only takes 30% longer to load than the original E2E. And the FPS in the game is even higher.

10+ additional major mods and +200 tweaking and Quality of Life addons. Some notable of them:


   New Content     QOL     Performance 

Thaumic Augmentation




Particle Culling


Construct's Armory


Traveler's Backpack








Thaumic Speedup




Hole Filler Mod




Tinkers' Evolution




Had Enough Items
