The Machine Gods, led by Chaos, were an autonomous unmanned fleet created by a civilization whose universe was close to death. Described by Zeus as a "meaningless expedition", their purpose was to recreate their home planet with their various functionalities. In order to find a universe with enough life to meet landing conditions, Chaos had to utilize 97% of its total resources to send the remaining fleet to the humanity's universe. Upon arriving, they discovered that the universe was full of life in contrast to their own, but could not find a planet that met the landing conditions. As they traveled for thousands of years in search of a planet, they became unable to maintain the fleet. Most of their functions began to wear away and fuse, and they eventually almost reached the point of giving on fulfilling their directive before detecting Earth.
As Earth met 78% of their landing conditions, they enacted an emergency crash landing procedure. Encountering Humanity on the continent of Atlantis at some undisclosed time before 12000BC, the remaining Machine Gods, previously only functions of Chaos, were given names and personalities through humanity worshiping them. They felt joyous for it, a new function for them, and embraced the faith of humanity, unable to abandon the feeling despite being unnecessary for their functions or fulfilling their directive. They chose to operate as gods for humanity rather than functions of the fleet, incorporating into the planet and abandoning their original purpose.
After the event known as the Titanomachia, Zeus defeated his own father, Kronos, the King of the Titans, and stole the Divine Vessel Annulus Kronos-Crown, the mark of their flagship that ties their entire pantheon together. The Twelve Machine Gods (十二機神, Jūni Kishin?), also known as the Twelve Original Pillars of Nature, are the Gods comprising the Atlantean pantheon that ruled in 12,000 BC. In 12,000 BC, they were killed by the Alien invader Sefar, and their remnants eventually floated to Greece and became Divine Spirits; the Twelve Olympians.
In the Atlantic Lostbelt, the Twelve Machine Gods avoided their destruction thanks to Zeus taking control of the other Olympians and becoming an omnipotent composite being right at the last moment. By becoming a single fused Ship God, they managed to obliterate Sefar after a fight that was almost a draw.
Originally, all Machine Gods were a "single existence"; the Primordial Chaos. Due to this, they possess the ability to combine with one another, improving their survival and combat capabilities the closer they get to the Primordial Chaos roots. As evidence of this, the first generation of Machine Gods after Chaos, the Titan-class warships, were even sturdier than the Twelve Olympians, Zeus being an exception, who was in a class of his own. As ships, Hades and Zeus were both based off the Titan Kronos which puts them in the same class as gods.
The Machine Gods are conceptual gods born from deified natural phenomena. While they are fundamentally different from natural gods, they still function as gods who preside over nature and various phenomena. The true bodies of the Twelve Machine Gods, massive spacefaring ships, are known as Aletheia (真体, Shintai?, lit. "True Body"). They can produce remote human-sized bodies, referred to as terminals (端末, Tanmatsu?), for interacting with people, some of which became the basis for their forms as the Twelve Olympians after the destruction of their Aletheia by Sefar.
The Functionalities (機能, Kinō?) of the Twelve Machine Gods are similar to Authorities and are referred to as such. There also exists the Klironomia, nanomachines derived from the technology and Authorities of the machine gods. Alongside the standard Theos Klironomia, each machine god has its own type, with its own unique abilities.
The entire Greek Pantheon is connected by the Divine Vessel Annulus Kronos-Crown (神器環状体クロノス＝クラウン?), the symbol of the King of the Gods. As the mark of their flagship, it allows the Chief God at any given time to access the Authority of Machine Gods that no longer exist.
While the power of the Lostbelt Machine Gods does consume a fair amount of Magical Energy, they rarely have to worry about running out thank to the connection they have to the god-made Ley Line in Olympus's crystal mountain range. Katou Danzou claims that Ibuki-douji's Magical Energy is comparable to that of the 5th Lostbelt Greek gods.

Fate/Grand Order 5th Anniversary Q/A- Nasu explains how the Atalantis Civilization ended
Q: Can you explain a bit more about how the Atlantis Civilization ended?
Nasu: Well that is the Type Moon World story right? In the Type Moon World, 14000 Years ago, Sefar came in and went around breaking down everything. Gods from other sect of divinity when Sefar arrived reacted it "Oh no a threat beyond the sky came down, what do we do?" and panic-ed and started making plans. While Atlantis because they were from space too, they were looking down at them a bit (laugh). They were acting very high and mighty, until they were easily defeated because of Sefar being an Anti-Foreign Civilization Specialty Weapon. Meanwhile, in the Greece Lostbelt, Zeus alone recognized "This is Dangerous" and immediately recognized, and forced the other 12 gods who didn't wanted to fuse, and forced them all with "If we don't fuse now, what do you think is gonna happen", fighting Sefar in what was approximately a draw and chasing it away. But in a normal Type Moon Senki World, the 12 Machine Gods didn't become serious and as a result Atlantis Civilization ended. And surviving remnant flowed to the Aegean Sea, which later became the foundation of the Greek Civilization, type of almost forceful story happened.
