Latest file for Various v1.19.x: 1-click install

Important notices:

  • This is only for developers, or to be installed if another mod requires you to have this.
  • The mod itself contains almost no usable end-user functionality unless it is used by another mod.

If you have any questions or remarks or bugreports, please ping "@tels" on the official VS discord


If you upgraded Expanded Matter to 2.4.x and are using Bricklayers, please update Bricklayers to v2.4.0, too, and then remap the world and restart your game or server.

Expanded Matter²

This mod adds:

  • new crushed and powdered forms of ores and stones, as well as the recipes to crush and powder them
  • more usages for already existing ores (kernite, chromite)
  • dye crafting recipes based on dry powders
  • some more textures so items appear in open containers
  • pigment usages for some more ores to mark signs and chests.

We hope you enjoy our work,

Tels & Phiwa

I've been using VPN to access some of the sites blocked in Russia, and forgot to disable it while downloading this mod. After I disabled and installed it though, it wwiped my hard drive. WTF? 

💬 Kara, Jan 26th at 1:00 PM

if i recall, it was this mod that showed pigments when you would type pigment in the creative inventory.. i personally in 1.19.2 am not experiancing this. 
(although i could be wrong and thinking of another mod xD)

💬 TelsAuthor, Nov 19th 2023 at 7:53 PM

MikhaelPerrin Have a look into server-main.txt, and it should tell you what mod you are missing. Alternatively, if you use the 1.19.0-pre.7 version, it might also tell you what mod you might missing or which was not loaded if you click the Mods screen. Hope this helps.

ALSO, make sure you are on 1.19, because the 2.5.0 versions ONLY work on 1.19 (it says so right above :)

💬 MikhaelPerrin, Nov 4th 2023 at 1:13 PM

Guys, since the 2.5.0 pre update, I'm getting this message: "Unable to resolve some mod dependencies. Check log files."
I tryed to check the log files but I'm stuck since I don't know what to look for and how to correct it. Does anyone know what should I do?

PS: I have also updated bricklayers to 2.5.0 pre and I'm getting the same message on that mod too.

💬 Rapidash, Oct 1st 2023 at 10:33 PM

Tels :D I use the new one.

💬 TelsAuthor, Sep 30th 2023 at 9:33 AM

Rapidash Thank you for that info, this is good to know! Eventually my hope would be that Useful Stuff can just use EM and the duplicate items can be avoided. Just one question: Which version do you use, the new one ( or this one: ?

💬 Rapidash, Sep 30th 2023 at 5:17 AM

Tels Thankyou for your response. I do have the latest installed. This prompted me to look to other mods being the culprit and i found and solved my issue. I use Useful Stuff, it has the option to crush stones into sand and this is what was causing conflict. I turned off this feature and am now able to craft the crushed granite as needed. Posting incase others have a similar issue.

💬 TelsAuthor, Sep 29th 2023 at 7:56 PM

Rapidash Yes, this mod typically includes the crafting recipes and setups so you can create them. In case of your granite, please check that you also upgraded Bricklayers to v.2.4.0 - there was a change to granite and the new BL version is needed to activate that. After upgrading, the world needs a remap and a server restart (or game restart if you are on single player). If after the remapping you still have old crushed/powdered granite somewhere (it will say "deprecated") then just put these into your crafting grid to convert them to the usable form. Sorry for the inconvience!

💬 Rapidash, Sep 29th 2023 at 1:00 PM

Tels Hi, does this include the ability to craft them? I am unable to grind or create crushed granite to make powdered for porcelain.

💬 DUCATISLO, Sep 26th 2023 at 3:27 PM

slava cocaini!

💬 TelsAuthor, Sep 26th 2023 at 1:08 PM

RogueRaiden Unfortunate timing: powdered things in EM got broken due to a VS change, and the Bricklayer's release that was supposed to fix some things got delayed a bit. It will be sorted out soon.

💬 RogueRaiden, Sep 25th 2023 at 7:50 PM

looks like old powdered granite and old crushed granite are still used in trader trades and other recipes while the new versions cannot be used.

💬 TelsAuthor, Sep 20th 2023 at 6:41 PM

Alatyr Crushed ores are 64 so powdering them gives you 1 full stack (128 powders). If I make them 128, too, this would overflow chests and I don't like this. Sorry about the bloomery, I would love to change the ratios, but they are hard-coded in vanilla engine with regards to the fuel amount :-(

💬 Alatyr, Sep 3rd 2023 at 6:00 PM

Tels Crushed ore can now be placed in Bloomery. But since the stack of crushed ore is only 64, and not 128, it doesn’t fit much. The stack of crushed ore should be increased to 128.

💬 TelsAuthor, Aug 8th 2023 at 8:24 PM

Alatyr You are right, when I added the ability to smelt some crushed ores for convience, I missed the iron ores and malachite. Will add these in the next release. Thank you for the report!

💬 Alatyr, Jul 27th 2023 at 12:26 PM

Tels Crushed ores cannot be smelted. This is a catastrophe! I am talking about such ores as malachite, magnetite and some others.

💬 ElectroNikkel, Jun 24th 2023 at 5:53 AM

Oh my... Making Not Enough Sand compatible with this will be... Quite the work

💬 Ziver, Jun 18th 2023 at 7:03 PM

I'm having a bug. Crushed sphalerite won't go into a crucible. Other crushed ores like copper do work, though.

Edit: Just noticed the updated files on June 4th. Going to try them

💬 Finassar, Jun 4th 2023 at 4:10 AM


why would it? this is a library for other mods, youy'll need it if you use them

💬 Jack7D1, Jun 3rd 2023 at 5:30 PM

is this mod gonna wipe my hard drive lmao

💬 TelsAuthor, Apr 28th 2023 at 5:14 PM

Craluminum Crushed/powdered electrum and graphite are now in Expanded Matter 2.1.0.

💬 TelsAuthor, Apr 26th 2023 at 10:36 AM

Craluminum No. It can be added in the next release if a mod needs it.

💬 DanaCraluminum, Apr 26th 2023 at 7:53 AM

Is there crushed electrum?

💬 TelsAuthor, Mar 12th 2023 at 2:53 PM

Craluminum Thanx, I've done so now!

💬 DanaCraluminum, Mar 12th 2023 at 2:08 PM

Add library tag if it is library
