Simple Condensers is, as the title suggests, adds simple to use condensers. I was originally just making this for me and my friends, but ended up posting it on twitter and got people interested.
Used in the crafting on the Geladen Star and for transferring energy from a condenser or Transmutation Tablet to another. Right-click an empty Suuri Star on a condenser or a Transmutation Tablet to extract its energy, then right click another to transfer the energy to it.
Used in the actual creation of the condensers. To create one, you must make a 3x3x3 structure of Ash Infused Stone with a large Alchemical Chest in the center. Then, with 8 minium dust in your inventory, right click the center of any side of the structure with a Suuri Star to create the Geladen Star.
There are 3 tiers of condensers (one for each of the Alchemical Dusts), Verdant, Azure, and Minium Condensers. Functionally, they all work the same. They each will consume one item per stack every cycle and convert it into energy, and create one of it's target item per cycle. To create items, you must put a tome in the top right slot of the interface and an item you've learned in the top left slot.
Then any items that do NOT match the target item and have an exchange energy value will be consumed.
Normally if no valid target item is given, it will leave items stored in it alone. Depending on the redstone settings of the condenser, it may or may not condense items into energy if it receives a redstone signal. It's redstone settings can be changed by right-clicking it with a redstone torch.
The difference between each tier is speed. The Verdant Condenser has a cycle once every second, the Azure once every 1/2 second, and the Minium condenser once every tick.
Sometimes you want to upgrade a condenser, but don't want to hassle with breaking it and dealing with all the items it drops. Condenser Upgrades allow you to upgrade a condenser to the next stage up (or downgrade to the previous stage if you're mad). So you can change that Azure condenser to a Minium one with a simple right click. Remember though that upgrades must go in order, so you can just upgrade a Verdant Condenser directly into a Minium one.
Plenty good for you. Obnoxious when you find a new mod and they're like Nodal Mechanics "It does nodes, research and read in the thauminomicon if you want more info" Which translates to "download and install this new mod that could break things to find out if it might break things!"
I love that I can pump in a crapton of cobble and actually have it all consumed. It was the biggest problem with "EMC reactors" in 1.2.5. One item per tick. Period.
I'm scared right now. The once buggier Portable tablet is now the least buggy! I didn't change how the GUI worked, I just added a packet handler because it wasn't saving the inventory properly when using onContainerClosed so I had to use a packet. O_o
I can't use the condensers to make end stone. I have the transmutation researched and can pull it out of a tablet, but shift-click at a condenser puts it in the "stuff" section rather than the target slot, and even if manually put in the target slot, it doesn't work.
In general they seem to be awfully finicky for me. Also nonfunctional are diamond blocks and the upper tiers of compressed cobblestone, despite having seen such cobblestone and even nether stars used in a Let's Play. Using minium condensers in all cases.
Mod versions: EE3 0.3.507, LomLib 3.2.0, SC 1.2.0. This is in the FTB Horizons Daybreaker modpack.
Ed: Never mind. Stung by an out-of-sync, apparently; works properly on reloading the world.
I'm playing on the Horizons modpack in FTB and i've got EE in my condensor, iron ingots are learned in my tome and i've got an iron ingot in the top left slot of my condensor but it doesnt seem to be doing anything. Any ideas?
