This mod pack has the concepts of minimalism and phase development. Until you pass the previous phase, you will not get access to the next one. Everything is implemented by modifying the recipes of basic crafting items of the next phase with top-end items from the previous one. For more details, see the concepts and the diagram.
When I was looking for a modpack for version 1.16.5. I saw a lot of modpacks in which all popular mods are thrown indiscriminately. There are a lot of cool industrial mods, but they all have almost the same function. You can start developing simultaneously in all mods, have ten different crushers performing the same function. A lot of ores of the same type. Moreover, mods have almost no connection with each other. I don't like this kind of trip. In this connection, I decided to create this modpack. All mods were selected very carefully, I tried to avoid unnecessary mods. The list of mods has been revised and formatted very many times (The modpack exists and has been updated since version 1.16.5 -> 1.17 -> 1.18 -> 1.19.2. Since that time, many concepts and philosophy have undergone changes, the list of mods has been revised and polished. As a result, I came to a certain ideal for me. There are such global mods as Create, Immersive Engineering, Mekanism, Applied Energistics 2, CC tweaked. There are also many other mods for a better experience, fight, dungeons world gen. But at the same time, the vanilla nature of the game and the philosophy of minecraft are preserved.
A lot of effort (around 100 hours) was spent on doing perfect worldgen. List/weights of biomes/structures has been polished very carefully. Now it looks absolutely insane.
- Simplification of recipes / gameplay is prohibited.
- No cheating(cave minimap, etc).
- Recipe / gameplay complications from any mods are welcome.
- Complicating the recipe / gameplay should be logical, realistic and create better compatibility between mods.
- Excessive complication is prohibited.
- It is impossible to start development in next phase mods without significant development in previous phase mods.
- Each mod added to the modpack should have many unique, in no way replaceable from other mods, really necessary functions.
- The original philosophy of minecraft has been preserved, in other words, everything that happens in the world is influenced by the player.
Initial mods, about which you should know:

Vanilla and Create.
In this phase, you begin survival. According to the concepts of this modpack, Create is a mod of the simplest, rough and inaccurate mechanical technologies of the 17-18th century with a little bit of magic. To move on to the next phase, you will need to create almost all the mechanisms from this mod, organize a lot of conveyor production lines and extract a lot of netherite, it is assumed that you will do this not manually but with the help of minecart contraption consisting of many mechanical drill and lava-substituting mechanisms. If you don't know how to build them, schematics are included in the modpack. And as a culmination, the craft Alternator, with which the mechanical energy of the Create mod is translated into FE.
