Introducing modpack, based around progression-through-ages system, but without strict restriction, only with changed recipes. You start in the stone age, gathering flint and grass to make your first equipment. You slowly evolve and can built more complex structures like Coke Oven. Then the Mechanical age begins - you can now try to build you first machines based on mechanical power... and that's just a beginning...
There are over 500 quests to guide you from Stone age to Digital age.
I - Stone age
II - Mechanical Age(Better with Mods);
III - Industrial Age(Immersive Engineering);
IV - Agricultural Expansion(Forestry);
V - Industrial Revolution(Techreborn);
VI - Digital Age(Refined Storage);
guided progression(over 500 quests) - it will help you if you're new or challenge you if you already know most mods;
custom balanced recipes;
custom buildings in villages;
realistic terrain generation that will inspire you to build with more passion;
age-based progression system(stone, mechanical, industrial, digital ages);
immersive-looking functional machines from Windmills to multi-block Blast furnaces;
carefully handpicked and filtered mods. You won't be overhelmed with same features from different mods but you will have everything you need.;
modular tools and armor;
tired of tech staff? Go explore! Dungeons and Twilight forest awaits!

You can actually mine iron. Took me a while to figure that out. I thought the stages mod was there to prevent mining but apparently not. And then you just smelt the iron chunks (that you get from mining iron ore) in the furnace to get iron. My main problem right now is that I can't figure out how to get wheat seeds (normal seeds). They don't seem to drop from grass but they are needed for some of the quests including wheat for the bed.
