00:00 Introdution

"HELLOOOOO eveybody !" :-)

has done mining since last episode. Urgent topic : FOOD !

00:30 sickle : can clear away large patches of grass and leaves. The differences between sickles (wood/.../diamond) is just the durability, not the range. Use it to collect seeds from grass.

05:00 setting up a wheat and barley farm

06:00 new type of bucket ("Christmas Bucket" from pluginsforforestry mod)

09:30 cotton seeds can be planted to get cotton, which can be used to get string and wool.

10:30 processing the ores. It is possible to double the ores in different ways.

12:00 found skeleton spawner, look include thaumium and ender-lily seeds. These seeds can be planted to get ender pearls !

13:20 TIP : hit F7 and in some dark areas you will see red lines and yellow lines. Red lines indicate where monsters can spawn during day and night. Yellow lines indicate where mobs can spawn only during the night. Place torches down to remove these lines and make the area safe.

14:20 planting ender-lily seeds, they grow better on endstone. They take a long time to grow (a minecraft week)

15:00 harvesting barley, craft into flour and smelt it to get bread

16:00 crafting a grind stone, allows to manually grind ores into dust which can then be smelted. You get two dusts per ore thus doubling the output. A wooden crank is needed to operate the grind stone

20:50 starting with thermal expansion, pretty good way to startup and get ore doubling. We need the redstone furnace and the pulverizer, and we need dynamos to power them. The steam dynamo is the more basic one, running off coal and water.

23:00 getting sand to make glass. Morphing into a squid to be able to breathe underwater

24:00 crafting the furnace and pulverizer

25:20 info on the pulvzerizer

27:20 crafting station, better crafting table

27:50 crafting the steam dynamo and setting it up, needs water

29:20 leadstone energy conduits are needed to transmit the energy (reflux and no longer minecraft joules)

30:00 the crescent hammer is needed to rotate the dynamo

32:00 crafting the furnace

33:00 explanation on the tabs of the pulverizer and the furnace, to allow sending items from one machine to the other automatically

06:18 fluiducts to bring water to the machines

08:00 store excess energy for later use with energy cells

09:30 crafting and using the leadstone energy cell
in the GUI :
side yellow : not accepting any connection

11:45 a little exploring, found raspberry and blueberry bushes, good for early food, can be replanted

14:20 getting better tools with tinker's construct

15:25 reading the book
