I've been really getting into playing the Feed The Factory mod pack.
I've abbreviated a few mod names as follows:
IE - Immersive Engineering, EIO - Ender IO, TE - Thermal Expansion, MM - Modular Machinery, LA - Logistical Automation
Some info on the research system in the pack - there are 6 tiers of science, Green - Logistic, Red - Mechanics, Blue - Production, Purple - Utility, Yellow - Chemical, and rainbow (the science cycles colors between the previous 5 tiers) - Quantum.
Green and Red science can be made in the Burner Researcher multi-block. Green needs TE Iron Plates and IE Conveyor Belts, plus Coal or Charcoal. Red uses TE Steel Gears, IE Copper Coil Blocks, and again coal or charcoal. Blue requires a custom item added by the mod pack author called an Aluminum Widget. It is made with a TE Al Gear, 4 IE Al Structural Arms (ramps), and 4 Al wire. The other 2 components are IE Redstone Engineering Blocks and TE Fluxed Electrum.
I have posted some screenshots of the factory. The 1st is that of my Storage Drawers. With the exception of cobblestone, some items which I only have a few or one of, and any tools, everything I have crafted or smelted in the pack is stored here. The 2nd image is my IE Metal Presses, and in the background IE Water Wheels. I have 30 of these on 10 IE Kinetic Generators producing a total of 450 Redstone Flux (RF)/t. There is also an Ender IO LV Capacitor Bank, storing 900,000 RF. It is behind the 2nd Metal Press, and is to the right of the Dropper.
The 3rd image shows some IE Improved Blast Furnaces, which can make Steel from Iron and coal, charcoal or coal coke. The last of these is made in an IE Coke Oven from Coal, which also produces Creosote Oil. That is to the left of the belts that look like stairs. These are LA Escalator Belts. The Creosote Oil is in that tank on the right of the belt. It is about 2/3 full, and holds 512,000 mB. Next image is that of the Researcher GUI. This is also a MM multi-block machine.The last image is that of my TE smelting line. The ore multiplication at my current stage of tech is 2.5x, and can go up to 10x with TE Augments. A closer look at the Water Wheels is in this image. Since the wheels themselves are made out of IE Treated Wood (uses the creosote oil), I chose to make the entire building housing them out of those. The machine to the left of the first Pulverizer is an IE Assembler multi-block. It can auto-craft almost instantly, but the pack author made it so that anything unlockable, including what you have already researched, cannot be made in it.
I have unlocked the next tier of power, MV. EIO's MV Energy Conduits can be made, and can transfer 5000 RF/t, 10x the LV ones. I also unlocked tier 4 Solar Panels (64 RF/t) from Solar Flux Reborn. I last played with this mod in Stoneblock.
