  • Question if I am missing something in GT5U 5.09.29 when trying to go from the steam age to electrical age (I believe its still to make a basic steam turbine) I am unable to make the coated circuit board since I am unable to make the 3 wood planks needed. The only recipe is 8 wood pulp in a compressor make the wood plank. The issue is how do you get wood pulp in the steam age? It looks like there are a bunch of recipes from electric machines. The only one that might make since is the Pulverizion recipes. I do not know if the stream macerator might work. The issue I have is early game diamonds to next to impossible to get. Has anyone been able to make the early circuits and have any suggestions?


    BTW thanks Blood for continuing GT5.

    Find a vein with garnerite/nickel/cobaltite. Make a pickaxe from cobalt. Find the diamond and dig it with a pickaxe.

    Or find a vein of coal. Make industrial diamonds.

    I was wondering how to get the next level mining without needing electric machines. So this makes the steam macerator a requirement now to make the circuit boards where the steam macerator could be skipped before. I just wished that the steam macerator needed a diamond dust cutter of some kind instead full diamonds. A suggestion would be a steam wood cutter that would use a diamond dust cutter and make 4 planks and some small piles of wood pulp. It gives another way to get wood pulp and have a use for the diamond dust in the stream era. You would still need the saw for sticks though.


    Thanks for the suggestion for the cobalitite....I guess it back to mining again.

    I had same problem. Easiest way is to find cobaltite or with luck enough iridium shards (compressor -> iridium ore -> iridium pickaxe). I found them in spawner room twice (you need it to pick some obsidian for industrial diamonds).

    Coal is pretty common.

    If you find cobalt instead of iridium shards then you are ready to go same way.

    Longer way is finding small diamond ore at levels 5 - 10. Good luck with droping diamond instead of dust/chip/etc.
