Ok so thoughts on AE2
1. No world gen, so you have to acquire your quarts with IE, IF or botania. Crafting presses, quartz glass and skystone with IE.
2. Increased power consumption on everything to require more infrastructure.
3. More expensive data cells with more microcrafting.
4. Rarer and/or more refined materials required through out.
So you'll get your ME system, but it will require more work to setup and more power to run. pride and accomplishment and all that.
I won't go crazy with it, cause its a lot of work, but it will need more effort on the players part and should make it just a little bit more balanced.
Applied Energestics 2 is in! Are you freaken’ sorry!
Blossom now as AE2, but not as you know it. I have hit things with the nerf hammer to move them to late game, but blossom is not fundamentally a ‘hard pack’, so these changes should not be too restrictive.
Here is a quick overview of the changes I have made.
Meteorites do not spawn. Sky stone dust can be crafted and smelted in to blocks of skystone.
Certus quartz does not spawn in the world. You can acquire it through the IE excavator, IF mining laser, botania orechid and small amounts from dungeon loot.
The base power requirements of your ME system is now much higher. Even small systems will require several hundred RF/t
The most important crafting recipes have been nerfed. The diversity and quantity of materials required has therefor increased.
Below is a snapshot of the crafting recipes changed. Top left is the new inscriber recipe, below is the block for reference. Hopefully the image is clear enough.
What do you think about these changes? Feedback would be appreciated.
