Project Per Fabrica ad Astra (through crafting, to the stars) is a hardcore technical-terrafirmacraft pack designed for experienced players.
This pack aims at providing a complete, believable and smooth experience from stone age to interstellar travel, with heavy engineering content in mind.
Survive, mine, craft, design your base and your automation, manage your power generation and consumption, shape the world with your hands and in the end create the massive factory you have ever dreamed of.
