So, im working on a industrial sort of modpack and was wondering if there is a block that functions like the railcraft smoker without railcraft? just something that makes lots of smoke, as most mods only give a small spout 1block above the machine if anything.
If you're willing to include GregTech (which definitely fits an industrial theme), venting gases from wooden pipes provide plenty of smoke. See attached image (which uses BDCraft resource packs). The big drawback is that you have to give them a continuous supply of gases to vent.
