Factorization Mod 1.7.10
This mod adds many machines for processing ore and crafting. It also has a few other useful things. The latest update brings electric Charge.
First Tools & MachinesThe Pocket Crafting Table
Did somebody order a 3×3 crafting grid to go? Craft directly from your inventory, at any time! Press ‘c’ to use. Of course, you’ll have to clear out that extra junk in your inventory before you can use it. But don’t worry; with this mod, that won’t be a problem for long! If you have NEI installed, you can use it while in other GUIs. If you press the ‘c’ key with the window open, it will drag and rotate the items around the perimeter. If you press the ‘b’ key, it will balance the item stacks. The ‘x’ key will try to clear the crafting area.The Almighty Barrel
Based on item-stockpiling technology discovered in the recently abandoned Fortress of Nod Semor, the barrel can store 64 stacks of a single item type. Never fill a chest with cobblestone again!
Right click a barrel with an item to drop it in; left-click to remove. Double-right clicking will dump all of the matching items in your inventory into a barrel, left-click will pull a stack out, and shift-left click will pull out a single item.
Is 64 stacks not nearly enough for your cobblegen? There’s an upgrade for that…
The Crafting Machines
The crafting automation tools found in certain other mods makes automatic crafting far too easy. This crafting system has two machines, the Maker and the Stamper. These machines need to be used with (for example!) RedPower’s tube system to make them actually be automatic.
The Maker makes craftpackets. This is fueled by paper, which goes in the bottom slot. Then you need to select which crafting slots items will go in. Place items in the top slot to put those items into a craftpacket. When there are items in all the selected slots, the craftpacket will be moved to the right slot. If the craftpacket is blue, that means it can be crafted into something.
Place craftpackets in the left slot of stamper to craft the packet. If you place an invalid or incomplete craftpacket in, the contents will be dumped to the other slot. You can also put in, for example, bones to get bonemeal. If a recipe has multiple results, such as for making cake, all the other used ingredients will be placed into the output slot.This is how you can make an axe.Here is a simple sword machine. Press button, receive sword!There is another crafting machine, the Packager, which will try crafting a 3×3 or 2×2 grid full of whatever item you give it. This is quite useful for automatically making bricks and metal storage blocks.Silver Ore
This mod adds silver ore. It can be found between y-level 7 and 55. It generates in fairly large blobs that are bigger than coal veins. However, it is somewhat rare. Only one silver ore vein can be found in a chunk, and most chunks don’t have one.The Slag Furnace
The slag furnace works similarly to the vanilla furnace, but has an extra output slot. It also uses twice the fuel. For most ores, it will produce an ingot with a low chance of making two instead of one, and also some stone. Silver ore will make silver ingots and lead ingots. Silver is used for mirrors, and lead is used for electrical wiring.Diamond Shards
The recipe for Diamond Shards is very expensive and volatile. Diamond Shards can only be safely created in a Stamper. (You can make the Craft Packet directly from a crafting table.)
(This picture is old, it now gives 18 shards)Electric ChargeThe electricity system in this mod is called Charge. The first electrical component is a battery. Batteries are made with acid, lead, and iron.
To power the solar turbine, you need to use the silver to craft a few mirrors.
Back to wires:
You can measure the charge in wires (and in other things) using the Charge Meter:
All of these machines require charge to run. Here’s a bunch of crafting recipes:
The grinder will grind ores. This is the start of the full ore processing chain. It takes 11 mirrors to get it started, and once it’s at full speed, only needs half the power. Obtaining the Dark Iron Ingot is described in “Demons and Wrath”.
The mixer mixes up various materials with water. It needs only 2 mirrors to run.
The crystallizer must be heated up with a heater, but it only for a brief period of time. After that, it must be left alone to cool off as the crystal forms. This process takes 20 minutes. If you put more material in the extra slots, they will crystallize in parallel. This lets you process up to five stacks at once in a single crystallizer.
Ore processing allows you to get extra ingot yields from your ores, ranging from 120% (using merely a slag furnace) to 300% (using several steps, ending with crystalline metal). This steps work with Iron, Gold, Lead (the primary metal in Silver Ore), and also Copper and Tin.
This got formatted badly. MCF needs to lern2table. Someone who isn’t me can fix it.
Ore The block you know and love. Smelt: 100% Slag: 120%
↓ Grind in a Grinder ↓
Ore Gravel Ground up by sharp diamond shards, it is now ready for further processing. Smelt: 140% Slag: 160%
↓ Wash with water from a bucket in a Mixer ↓
Clean Gravel Many silicates and other natural contaminates have been washed off the ore. Smelt: Still 140%
↓ Reduce in a Slag Furnace ↓
Reduced Chunks The ore has now been deoxydized, and is quite clean. Smelt: 200%
↓ Purify in a Crystallizer using Sulfuric Acid ↓
Crystalline Metal The metal has been dissolved in acid, heated, and then cooled slowly, allowing the formation of a metallic crystal. No impurities remain. Just smelt it to get an ingot. Smelt: 300%
Here’s how to crystallize lead:
You don’t need to process all the way! You can stop whenever you want. But the farther you go, the better yields you will get.
All of these recipes require access to a fully stocked Nether Fortress.
The Item Router
The Item Router has a number of upgrades that can be applied to it by shift-right-clicking the router with the item in hand. This will add a “–” button in the GUI, which you can press to look at each upgrade. To remove an upgrade, press Delete while hovering the mouse over the button.
The Wrath Lamp
The Bag of Holding
Press ` at any time to put your inventory into the BoH and pull other stuff out. You can add another column of storage to the BoH by crafting it with an enderpearl, a dark iron ingot, and a bit of leather.
The best place to put your Bag of Holding depends on how many columns it stores! A new BoH should go in the 4th column from the right; this way the location of items won’t change as you use `.
Mecha-Armor isn’t ready yet!
There are a few types of upgrades. For most upgrades, you can place multiples in to get increased effects:
The Cobblestone Drive
- 1. Download and install Minecraft Forge installer
- 2. Check that the forge install worked by running the client (or the server). Forge information should be on the title screen (or in the server’s logs). Exit minecraft.
- 3. Put Factorization.jar into the mods folder.
- 4. Optional: Install NEI by placing CodeChickenCore and NotEnoughItems into the coremods folder. This will let you use the Pocket Crafting Table and Bag of Holding from within other GUIs.
- Ported to 1.7
- Servos Logic has been rearchitected. There are now only 2 stacks.
- So, removed some instructions and added some new ones
- Removed a ton of lame things, including:
- Bag of Holding
- You’ll find an FZ Manual shortly after acquiring iron.
- many many other things, such as:
- new recipe for bonemeal
- clicking on paintings with an LMP cycles through all the paintings
- barrels indicate when they’ll be placed in a strange direction
