[GregTech] Industrial Efficiency Analysis

  • List of all possible products from various ore-processing methods. Note that this assumes you have Fortune III and Silk Touch available, as you otherwise cannot obtain all the ore blocks or attempt the Fortune Route.


    Note: Crushed/Purified/Centrifuged ores smelt to 10 nuggets. Choose between a nugget of the primary product or 1/10 of the tertiary byproduct at your discretion.

    Part 2

  • How do you macerate Pyrite into 4 iron? Wouldn't it make more sense to fortune mine it for more dirty piles? Macerating it gives me 2 dirty piles, the same as mining it. Am I missing something?


    Tests with the Iridium drill have been giving me byproducts with ridiculous consistency, so something might be off compared to normal fortune, but cinabar also seems like a no-brainer to fortune mine. From your decription it's like they give 4 dusts when macerated, but in my tests they only give two.

  • How do you macerate Pyrite into 4 iron? Wouldn't it make more sense to fortune mine it for more dirty piles? Macerating it gives me 2 dirty piles, the same as mining it. Am I missing something?

    I fixed it when I saw that you got 2 times more Iron than I actually wanted from it.

  • Y U NO outright fortune III the nether ores? :(


    Seriously, fortune III with pyrite gives you over 3 dirty dusts/iron bars per ore easily. Mining normally, maceration and the IBF result in the same two iron ingots. The latter two just add more steps/waste more energy/waste catalysts (calcite's lack of worth nonwithstanding, it's still a waste)


    Cinnabar also macerates into two dusts. You get 2/9 glowstone instead of 1/4 and still lose 1/4 redstone. With Fortune III you seem to always get one redstone, plus over 3 cinnabar dust per ore on average, taking you to over 3/9=1/3 glowstone compared to 1/4 from the industrial macerator.


    Any form of processing pyrite is inefficient, and cinnabar is a maybe for the industrial grinder and a complete waste to macerate(you also lose the chance for redstone besides gaining the same ammount of dust)

  • You shouldn't have said that, you should not have said that.


    WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


    Seriously though, some reworking/rebalancing of the nether ore outputs to make processing them viable should be done, even if it means waving around the nerfstick a couple of times. Fortune III is kinda random and rare and valuable right now, but I wonder how the 1.8 enchanting overhaul will affect it. The iridium drill is far from cheap, but once you have it it'll always be around barring dropping it into lava.


    Edit: The above post was in fact just a friendly FYI in case you hadn't noticed the change in macerating, but reading it now it does come off as kinda ranty.

    - IndG Route: 1 Certus Quartz, 6/4 Certus Quartz Dust, 2/4 Quartzite Dust


    Sulfur Ore:
    - Fortune Route: 5.5 Sulfur
    - UMac Route: 8 Sulfur, 1/10 Sulfur, 2/9 Sulfur, 2/9 Sulfur, 2/10 Sulfur
    - IndG Route: 8 Sulfur, 2/4 Sulfur, 2/9 Sulfur, 2/10 Sulfur (↑ Sulfur)

    - IndG Route: 8 Saltpeter, 2/4 Saltpeter, 2/9 Saltpeter, 2/10 Saltpeter (↑ Saltpeter)


    Uranium Processing (No Thermal Centrifuge):
    - UMac -> UMac -> Industrial Centrifuge: 1/10 Pu, 2/10 Pu, 2/9 Pu, 2 U238
    - Expected Plutonium Output of this process, after breeding: 0.559259 (↑ Pu)
    - Plutonium Output of IndG -> TCent Route, after breeding: 0.533951


    Centrifuged Ore UMac Byproduct:
    All this information is technically in the previous posts, but consolidated here for ease of reading. All numbers apply to a single item of centrifuged ore. Ores not listed (Coal/Redstone/Galena/Uranium etc.) either cannot be smelted or don't have a centrifuged form. UMac route always is 1/10 of the byproduct, smelting always is 1/9 of the main product. This means if the byproducts is the same as the main ore, always smelt, and if it isn't, decide whether you want the main metal or the byproduct more.


    • Copper: Ni
    • Tin: Zn
    • Tetrahedrite: Zn
    • Cassiterite: Sn
    • Iron: Sn
    • Nickel: Fe
    • Gold: Ni
    • Iridium: Os
    • Pyrite: 10/9 iron when smelted, 1/3 iron after UMac. Never UMac this.
    • Sphalerite: 10/9 zinc when smelted, but yields Cadmium via UMac. This is currently the only way to get Cadmium in the game.
    • Sheldonite: 10/9 platinum when smelted, but yields 1/10 Iridium via UMac and produces cooperite dust equivalent to 1/6 Pd, 1/2 Pt, 1/6 S, and 1/6 Ni.
  • Like the new layout much more than the old one :)

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.


    ---- Minecraft Crash Report ----
    // I just don't know what went wrong :(


    I see this too much.

  • You didn't mention U-235 in the Uranium Processing, only Pu and U-238.


    The nonstandard method of processing does not produce Purified Uranium, only GT Uranium which is equivalent to U238. You pretty much lose all the EU in favor of getting Plutonium faster (You get more Pu total if you do it the standard way, since you can UUM Uranium Ore).

  • Yes, I made a special Case and left only the IC² Uranium out of the Default GT Processing chain (OreWasher + Thermal Centrifuge), because of the Reactor Products.

  • I think they don't have a Byproduct, and no Byproduct automatically means that it is using itself as Byproduct. That Information is under gregtechmod.api.enums.Materials in the static Block under the Enum Initializaion
