REVOLUTION|1 - Gameplay Changes

Updated for v1.0.9.9

This page outlines the various game play changes to individual mods. There are quite a few and most can be found in NEI. If you can’t find or create your favorite recipe, this page is your last stop before logging an issue in the tracker.

General changes

  • Early game RF power is best provided through RotaryCraft’s Rotational Dynamo
  • You will need steel and RotaryCraft HSLA Steel in quantity.
  • Ore generates in large but rare veins. It may take a bit longer to find iron, but its not uncommon to get 100 ore from one vein.
  • Most machines require steel (plates, blocks, or ingots), RotaryCraft HSLA Steel, or both.
  • A number of key mod components are made on the BuildCraft Assembly Table
