Circuits and EXO Suits is a  "small", crafting focused Tech Mod.

It features a bunch of crafting Components and mid to late game Tools and Armor, as well as a custom "hand crafting" mechanic.


So, what's hand crafting? well... you take some Tools and some Materials and smack them on a crafting Station...

not really, but that's the idea, you have different "crafting tools" and together with the fitting ingredients in your inventory you can craft new components by clicking on the appropriate "Crafting Station".


Most Hand Crafting recipes can be Normal Crafted as well, but crafting by hand is more material efficient.


-"new" Ores-


  • Copper (found in the medium levels in the Overworld)
  • Tin (found in the higher levels of the Overworld)
  • Silver (found in the lower levels of the Overworld)


  • Sulfur (found all over in the Nether)
  • Tungsten
  • Titanium


  • Miasmite
  • Holocrom
  • Phoebeum


-new materials-

  • Resin (harvested from Jungle Trees trough the use of a Tree Tap, used as a binder in many different ways)
  • Mineral Paste (a Paste made from different kinds of Minerals, can be baked into Plastik)
  • Sheet Metal and Wires (rolled and cut from Alloys, used in Electronics)
  • Soldering Flux and Tin (for Soldering Electronics)
  • Electronics and hand crafted Metal Parts (complex Armory requires complex Components)
  • Carbide (a strong material, used to make powerfull tools)

  • Metal Sheers (cuts Sheet Metal into Wire)
  • Soldering Iron (used primarely in crafting Electronics)
  • Crucible (needed to smelt Alloys)

  • Enderium Alloy (pulsating Silver-Alloy made with living Matter)
  • Bronze (simple but sturdy, made from Copper and Tin)
  • folded Metal (layered Titanium, can be forged into Damascus Steel)
  • Star Steel (magical and strong, created with the energy from a Star...)


-EXO Armor-

  • Tier 1: constructed from hardened Bronze (about as strong as Iron Armor)
  • Tier 2: constructed from Damascus Steel (almost as sturdy as Diamond Armor)
  • Tier 3: constructed from Star Steel (better than Diamond Armor)


-EXO Modules-

Modules unlock the true potential of the Suits and grant you many different powers

  • Muscle Support (Strength)
  • Schock Absorber (nullifies Fall Damage)
  • Air Mask (Water Breating)
  • Support hinges (Speed)
  • Jetpack (quite obvious...)
