Undead Expansion mod 1.18.2, 1.16.5 is a work-in-progress mod for Forge that aims to primarily extend zombie creatures (not just undead ones) without ruining the “vanilla” experience, which is usually very important.
It also adds a touch of magic. It’s still only the initial edition, and there’s a lot more to come in the near future.

Features that are currently available:

Mob Essences: In a subtle sense, mob essences are another “things” item in the mod. There are now five (withered/wither skeleton, zombie, skeleton, spider, and ender/enderman) that are really popular. These may be utilized with Empty Spawners to make a very functional mob spawner in an understated manner.

Recipes: Use Just Enough Items to examine the empty spawner recipe, which is essentially a standard Crafting Table recipe.

These were the most fundamental characteristics. Now, let’s briefly go over some additional points:


At y25 and lower, a new stone kind spawns. It’s possible to utilize it to build fresh bricks.

Dark Crystals (Dark Crystals):

These occur in a tiny building that may be discovered on the same y levels as Grimstone, the crystal chasm, on rare occasions.


At a comparable level as iron, new material is spawning in ores. Silver Tools and Armor may be made using it. Undead creatures are terrified by the sword and axe.

Scepter of the Dark Crystal:

This is a magical weapon. It doesn’t operate like a normal ranged item; to use it, right-click a monster within 3 blocks of you. It has a limited number of applications and cannot be repaired.

Crystals generated in a structure


Netherite tools (with ingots at Smithing Table) are upgraded with new powers using new inferior material.
Pickaxe, Sword, and Axe are the three weapons available. Terror has a tiny chance of being applied to a mob by Sword. It also increases the speed with which the wielder moves after delivering damage. You must smelt Shadowsteel Cluster to obtain an ingot.
After shattering a block, the pickaxe has a chance to grant the wielder Haste. Both talents are possessed by Axe. If you wear the entire set of armor, you will be immune to Terror.

Vile Armor

Upgraded leather armor pieces create Vile Armor (Smithing Table with Dark Cloth). Dark Crystal Scepter will apply Wither to monsters if all pieces are worn, and you will receive extra XP for crafting at Necromantic Table.


The Revealing Eye:

A unique item that, when right-clicked, grants the user the Danger Sight effect for roughly a minute, allowing you and other players to see unseen things. It has a cooling period.

Shards of the undead:

Some Necromantic Table dishes call for the following ingredients. With a 10% chance, drops from any zombie mob.

Mobs (current):


Ghosts are eerie Undead creatures that only emerge at night and in the Nether’s Soul Sand Valley. They are normally undetectable and aim to frighten the gamer. They accomplish this by assaulting an unsuspecting player, revealing themselves, applying Terror, and playing a cave sound. They become invisible again after a few seconds of not being attacked or attacking. They vanish throughout the day. Meeting them may be terrifying!

Drops: always one soul, ghostly wrappings


A hostile Infernal monster has spawned in the underworld. Although it has tiny wings, it is unable to fly. Its assaults have the potential to cause Terror. When a Demon is injured, it has the ability to set assailants on fire.

Demons aren’t considered undead. Demon Horn is a drop.
