I have these blocks in my NEI listing, and the mod they are listed under is "Forge Micro Blocks". I've played around with them in creative, and they work great! I've been looking for a way to hide wiring in a wall without making it 3 blocks thick, and I'm amazed at how well they perform this.
My problem is that in Survival, no recipes seem to come up for them. Is there no way to make them in survival? Is there any way to get them? I'd prefer to get them legitimately, but they really work so good for what I want to do, I'm tempting to get them any way possible.
If they can't be crafted legitimately, can someone recommend a mod with similar blocks that can be crafted in survival?
I think you need a saw to craft them, but I don't know if microblocks itself adds a saw, if it does I'd imagine it's a vanilla recipe with two sticks on the left and top left slots, two iron on the top and top right slot, and then two iron or two diamond in the middle and right slots of a crafting grid. Carpenters adds some nice stuff, thermal expansion adds facades to hide bc and te stuff. I know other mods add saws made from peridot, ruby, sapphire and amethyst.
Yep, I figured it out. Browsing through, I saw some saw blocks that actually did have recipes in NEI, and through trial and error, have discovered most of the recipes for the Microblocks. The blocks are amazing for making your house look presentable, yet still have power and logistical transport systems. I can hide everything behind the walls and floors. Not sure why most of the recipes aren't showing up in NEI, though.
