All that hassle when we can just get some ferru. or some cheap tine and then transmute to iron.
No tine yet
Not enough iron blocks to make ferru grow
Output too low on ores (and you have to use a hammer and than to purify them in a cauldron at an average rate of 1B/3dusts) that you can't process with TC and I still haven't automated the ordo beans
I don't want to make a golem with a use core just to burn through the senses that he would use clicking on the crop fields, I prefer waiting for an actual crop harvester and a way to power it
So yes, there is a need for all that hassle. Trust me, if I already had tine I would have just use that (and I'm not really sure since most of the GT items have no TC aspect on them), but there's no tine, thus the needs of me being the iron producer of k4.
Now I can finally have ferru fields going since I can finally make the 80 iron blocks, that wasn't possible without the iron golem farm and with the current ore output and way to process it. Also, everybody used tine, I think it was time to make something different and more vanilla ish. Now I'll just focus on a few mana bean farms to get vitreus, permutatio and lucrum
