What does this mod do?:
This mod adds more basic fuels to minecraft with varying different burn rates.
Please keep in mind that this is my first ever mod, I've never even coded before and made this using tutorials found on the internet so would very much appreciate positive feedback This mod is also specifically made with my modpack, SolitaryCraft, in mind. There are a lot of uses for fuel in my modpack so I decided to help myself on a little bit by creating this. Please also bare in mind i've never really create a page on a forum before, if anyone has any suggestions on how to improve this page visually or wants to help in anyway that would be amazing!
You can check out SolitaryCraft and our launcher on my youtube channel Haighyorkie!
This mod is now developed and maintained by Bstramke, who made Netherstuffs! I've kept the forum page though so I can update it for you guys!
These are the new blocks added to minecraft. From left to right, Toffite, Wivite and Clanite
All of these new ores drop chunks when mined:
These chunks can then be macerated with IC2 macerators into 2 dusts, the dusts cannot be used for anything other than putting them in a compressor. 4 dusts will make a fuel block that has even better burning times.
Toff Chunks will give you 12 uses in a furnace or generator
Wivite Chunks will give you 22 uses and Clanite will give you a stack worth of uses. These figures may be subject to change!
When you have macerated and then compressed 4 of these dusts together to make yourself a fuel block you will get even more uses for your time and effort! Toffite FuelBlock is 28 uses a Wivite FuelBlock is 50 uses and a Clanite FuelBlock is a massive 140 uses. Absolutely perfect for keeping a generator going for a while!
Obviously these are more powerful than coal in a furnace, so in turn are more difficult to find. Clanite for example is only found 2 per chunk in minecraft but if found can be a very useful tool indeed.
I am planning to add a machine into this that will take the place of the compressor as some sort of fuel refinery. Remember guys though that I'm not a coder at all and may take me a while to work out! If anyone has any suggestions at all please leave them below!
Simply drop the above file into your mods folder with the recommended forge already installed for the appropriate version!
If you would like to use this mod in your modpack I have no problems with that at all. Minecraft to me was meant to be enjoyed and mods enhance that, use it as you wish! (just make sure your pack is legal!)
Current Modpacks known to have this installed are:
If you would like yours added to the list PM me!
- Update to Minecraft 1.5.2
- Fortune Enchant now works on the ores!
- Added Thermal Expansion Integration and can use the ores in pulverizer's and such.
- Changed the spawn rate of Clanite (it really needed it) Also, thanks to the guys over at Redwood Server, i've optimized the spawning of all my blocks (should shave some time off generation time)
- Added the Anti-Boom Stick, pushes mobs away from it!
- Ore now drops XP when mined
- Silk touch will now drop Ore and the Ore can be macerated for 2 chunks
- Added ability to change ID's. I now have a config!!
How about some compressed coal or compressed Clanite, etc. which is like 4x as much much coal as normal ore. (Compressed meaning like in real like when coal in just one big bundle instead of separate blocks) It should be much rarer since it can be found in real life but hard to find.
I have a great idea for this mod. Can you make Toffite, Wivite and Clanite Chunks with the EE3 Minium Stone and make the chunks pulverized with Thermal Expansion Pulverizers (hopefully in the future ).
You sir just solved my problem of having to patiently wait for the good sir Pahimar to include the interdiction torch with one of his updates to EE3 pre. Your texture for it really isn't that bad at all. I actually really like it. I'm going to see if I cant get you a sphax texture for all of your items/blocks done and you could add a link to it in a texture packs section if you were so inclined. As this is your first mod that would actually be my first sphax texture so it may take a bit of time. Anyway I'm going to be keeping a close eye on this mod...oh I don't know if you are interested but I think you should add this mod to the list of mods for recent versions of minecraft.
