[Suggestion] Platinum, and changes to Iridium

  • I think that platinum should be added, but NOT by being mined. One would get platinum by smelting platinum ore. It could be used for a lot of IC2's advanced things, and when being smelted in an induction furnace with space in the output slots, would have a 1/10 chance to produce an iridium clump, which could then be compressed to receive an iridium plate. (Because real iridium is gotten from platinum, and a lot of the time when you have platinum you actually have platinum-iridium alloys) Platinum would notably be used for creating the Tier 4 stuffs, like mass teleporters, ion cannons, etc.

    It has become a little stubbly. Implement facial hair growth in IC²? Vision continuously grows more furry until you shave. (approx once every 2 minecraft days ;P)

    Check out Factorio- A game where you build a factory from scratch.

  • Sorry but i think that gots shot down like all the Silversuggestions

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.
    GregTech Website
    Patreon really helps me out. If you consider funding the development of GT, so I might be able to do it fulltime, why not?
    GregTech 6, the Main Thread, Bug Reports go here too.
    I'm also on #gt-dev on irc.esper.net, if you don't want to make a Forum account just to contact me.
    (I'm there almost every day, when I'm at my own computer. Yes you can drop bugs and suggestions there too)

  • if its not mined where does it come from? can't be mass fab cause you'll just be better off getting iridium the normal way

    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!"

    there is no way to transmute one metal into another by only heat or pressure or anything, you need fusion for this.


    fusion furnace (that will copy RP alloy furnace) to smelt something into something different is ok, smelt platinum into iridium is not ok.

    Unsafe.putObject(42,Unsafe.staticFieldOffset(42.getDeclaredFields()[42]),43);

    Oh really? So i guess brass and bronze and similar metals are just made magically no?

  • Oh really? So i guess brass and bronze and similar metals are just made magically no?

    There's a difference between metals and alloys. Brass & bronze are alloys, mixed metals.
    Tin, copper, iridium and platina are all metals. And yeah you'll need fusion of some sort to create different metals out of other metals.

  • Fine you both win that round, but still OP never mentioned anything about "Transmutation" nor "Fusion".


    Iridium can be considered one of the "Impurities" of raw Platinum, so with a proper process of heating and some other stuff you can actually clean that impurity leaving you with platinum in one side, and iridium in the other (Although the amount of iridium gotten with these processes its minuscule)

    Native platinum contains iridium. Not much, but it does.

  • WOOT???


    you cant turn one metal into another without nucklear fusion (or magic) hypotetical variable chance for iridium ore to contain any platinum (wtf its UUM generated and supposed to be 100% pure) is not option for additional tier in techbased mod IMHO.


    ability to stack 9999 iridium for more advanced metal is option only for korean MMORPG (and possibly EE) and not really fun and techbased.

    What? everyday that passes i understand you less.


    Real life talking, iridium its found as one of the natural impurities inside platinum.:

    Iridium was discovered in 1803 among insoluble impurities in natural platinum


    Minecraft talking, W/E i have said it already.
