First of all - sorry for my english.
Previous topic was closed, and I had no time to write.
If recipe will give 4 energium dusts per 4 diamond dusts - it's the best balance in my opinion.
so that I don't have to mine, what is the core content of MINEcraft?
Minecraft have two core contents. MINE and CRAFT. And when I need lot of diamonds and other stuff to make quantum armor - its ok because QA is usable item. Top level usable item. One of game targets if you want. Even night vision goggles in nanohelmet is ok, though crafting goggles is more complex than whole nanoarmor itself.
MFSU, MFE, fiber wire - are just an instruments, tools, means, etc to make other stuff. I don't want to spend whole game to make only MFSU. 1 diamond per wire? Why?? It's just a wire!
People playing not only IC2, there are other mods. IC2 for me is a way to process resources. Why I need this in the end of game?
I like metal formers - it's more realistic, I like thermal centrifuge and uranium isotopes, RITEGs and other stuff. But what you do to crystals... bad way. Really.
especially with a fortune pick
Magic? In a tech game with only tech mods? No thanks...
And I never got 40 diamonds per hour while mining. 0-12 are more realistic numbers.
Summing up: too expensive. 4 energium dusts per 4 diamond dusts - it's the best balance in my opinion.
