    He needs 4 for 2 teleporters, and it is freaking rare atm to get form gold.

    also if someone was wanting to plan for when the energy is fixed and back to "normal" you want to be prepared, honestly i don't want to "cheat" directly.

    Still, 4 Glass Fibers for HighTech things are not that bad. 1 Gold Ore = 2 tiny Silver Dusts, 4 and 1/2 Gold Ore = 1 Silver Ingot, 18 Gold Ore = Enough for a set of 2 Teleporters, and dont tell me Gold is rare, it is abundant and easy to mine. It's not that hard to find 3 Gold Veins in Minecraft.

    gold is not "rare" its just a unneeded pain esp when you already mined up a bunch and did not know to save it for later also the diamonds are rare enough/a major pain to make (currently making 32 of them to get enough for the power to have operational teleporters to a new base)

    also for some reason recipies seem to dissapear sometimes after i made my small alteration.. feels weird :/ went back to the old shaped recipies file and was ok.. still weird


    IIRC you don't need silver to make glass fibre, and the recipe should yield more glass fibre.

    it is only giving 1 glass fibre per recipie, not sure why but it is and i figure thats a major bug ( one reason i am posting some and just realized after sleep i needed to post in bug reports)

    It's required two silver ingots and 1 Energium dust for ages :P

    I did suggest a more realistic way for making it but I think player/thunder either don't want to, or are too busy. It would basically make it so that you need about a stack of coal per cable, but whatever :3

    thats the problem the recipie in game is currently
    Glass Fibre Cable
    IC2:itemCable@9 = "GGG|DRD|GGG" G:minecraft:glass@* R:OreDict:dustSilver D:IC2:itemDust2@2
    1 silver ( honestly i think it should be gold since diamonds to make the energium dust are rare enough even though its possable to make them its tough/time consuming)
    and 2 energium

    i understand it has to be expensive because its the end game power xfer.. and you want to make it hard to use that as the primary xfer but i feel its too expensive to make just 1. ( real life fibre cables use alot of mats to make but that ammount makes a TON of fibre so it also feels off here)

    For 9 cables with the current recipie you would need
    I am discounting the glass since its super easy to get in most places
    81 gold
    8 diamonds
    10 redstone

    9 silver per cable which means 9 gold purified per cable which is 81 gold you have to mine for 9 cables( and alot of time to process) ( also the game does not tell you how to get this.. i stumbled on a forum post that mentions this and honestly this is the worst imho issue)

    8 diamonds and 10 redstone make 18 energium dust ( uses 2 per cable )
    this is alot yes but not the worst part since its able to figure out in time.

    if somehow knows what to put in to make it give multiple cables out let me know and i can alter it to get me to shut up till the officialpatch can be done.

    but I still suggest it be a cheaper recipie but still require alot of time to process since that seems to be the reason for the change and by the time your at end game and using lots of fiber i presume you have lots of miners out there getting things for you and the cost would be alot cheaper.

    I just spent nearly 4 hours making what was needed to pull silver out of gold dust to make a single glass fiber.. not a multiplication.. just one..
    IMHO this is silly and crazy

    to make two teleporters i would need 4 total.. which i have run out of gold ( i had just been smelting so i have many stacks wasted)

    IMHO this recipie should change..
    I understand it needs to be expensive and diamonds should be part of it, but i say make it ground up diamond mixed with a new compressed sand thats "melted"

    So the recepie would be like bronze

    1 crushed diamond 7 purified molten glass and 1 gold = 9 Glass Fibre Cable

    molten glass

    Sand = ore washed to get pure silica
    9 silica compressed = ultra pure/refined silica
    use it in a furnace to get molten

    to state.. i am not upset at using the time.. but upset that the results gives no multiple of items like it should and i feel a better recipie is needed

    to be honest.. this is the second time i considered being defeated in the world/game. I don't know if i consider it cheating to try to alter the recipie or if i can change its output/# it gives ( gonna check that out) *edit* i don't consider it a cheat directly


    I looked around the jar file and found
    Glass Fibre Cable
    IC2:itemCable@9 = "GGG|DRD|GGG" G:minecraft:glass@* R:OreDict:dustSilver D:IC2:itemDust2@2

    and for the moment i changed it to
    Glass Fibre Cable
    IC2:itemCable@9 = "GGG|GGG|GGG" G:minecraft:glass@*
    for some reason adding the "@count:4" does not affect it at all or do anything diffrent
    I would make it add a diamond in the center but i don't know how and when i copied a "D:OreDict:gemDiamond" from the teleporter code and tried to use it, i got a error ( don't know anything why)

    why? becuase i feel at 1 fibre per craft as i explained before that recipie is.. unbalanced badly.. and honestly its my world to play in.. i choose not to play in creative so i have to make items but i do like having to have some scarcety to items and have to work at things.

    I overall am happy with the mod.. everything is complex to a degree but fun to work with!
