I had the idea for this a while back when I was updating my modpack, and I had to replace Atomic Science with Resonant induction. Resonant Induction has itself sectioned off, as each part of the mod you download as separate "Ages". There isn't anything actually stopping you from using stuff from the next age though. I think it would be cool if like in Thaumcraft you have to research stuff to get into the next age, where you are actually able to craft more stuff. Some of the ages would be as follows
Basic Research table.
Anything to do with magic
Iron Age Stone Age crafting
Advanced Research Table
Project Red crafting (Basic wires, Smelting, Lighting, World Items.)
Resonant Induction: Archaic Age
Renaissance Age Crafting
BC (Basic crafting. Nothing to do with microchips)
Mekanism (Basic Crafting, no Digital Miner, Digital Tools, Robbit)
IC2 (Basic Crafting, No advanced blocks or tools that require an advanced Machine Casing or Reactor, no Nano Armor)
Industrial Age crafting
BC (All crafting)
If you haven't researched Magic again you lose it, or have a equivalent to it, Flame wand would be flamethrower stuff like that.
