[Spoiler]Superfuel

  • Did you ever wonder what happened to the "secret" superfuel from IC? Well, I did. Developers of IC² already mentioned "adulterated fuel". Alblaka stated that you could put other things than Fuelcells into Fuelcans with the canning machine. Well, I did some experiments to find out more about it. To not ruin your fun about finding out things about superfuel, I'll put the stuff I found out in spoilers.


    Please excuse and tell me any mistakes you find here, I will correct them. Please tell me if this was posted already, I didn't find something like this by searching.
    Thanks for reading!

  • you can put dust into a fuel? cool!

    still rocking the GMA 950 card :D overclocked to the point of smoking. :huh: hahahahaha now i got my 525m now that thing does work 8) :P :D

  • Mmm, I had discovered this a while back, just by putting in a coal fuel cell in the canner then just tossing in all the dusts I could think of. I found that using the ingredients from IC1 super fuel worked quite nicely. However, I could not burn it in a generator (has something to do with it not being in NBT tags?)

    That's strange... I had no problems with burning it. By the way, could you use other dusts than the IC1-superfuel-dusts? At the moment I can't test it.

  • AFAIK, only redstone, gunpowder, and glowstone work. However, I haven't tried coal dust.

  • It doesn't work. I tried the metal dusts, coal dust, hydrated coal dust, scrap, UUM and a few vanilla dusts.

  • I did a bit of research and reverse engineered the fuel recipe formula after burning a forest worth of saplings and killing a small nation worth of creepers (etc.).

    acording to the IC2 Wiki, the best superfuel recipe will give 120,000EUs, i have yet to discover this, have you happened to find it?

    Old Ic1 information still in the wiki?

  • Ehm there always was a use for coal be it in generators or making diamonds with them.

    It always felt like a waste just burning it once nuclear energy became available, and turning it into diamonds really, really eats away at your coal reserves. Mine is usually turned into carbon plates, or left as coal until needed for another project. Having the super fuel makes it a very viable fuel source right up until you have multiple mkII generators constantly running.

  • So what, now to maximize my EU yield I have to mix gunpowder with the coalfuel? That's going to make my automatic Coal Fuel plant a heck of a lot more complicated. To the lab!


    Edit: My gut instinct about the two flavors of 'optimum' superfuel is that:

  • i don't like deep mining all my coal goes to diamonds if i can help it

    true balance is impossible in video games the best one can hope for is to make it really hard to guess which of 2 choices are better.
    and remember kids "NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF JOKES!"

  • I just see coal as a extra source of diamonds.

    I see Coal as my ONLY source of Diamonds until I get to end game... and even then, the coal is still cheaper to farm...
