What is Thermal Recycling Mod
Are you getting sick of accidentally creating 1e64 Pneumatic Servos when building machines in an Applied Energistics crafting grid? Or having a bucket of iron and diamond armor looted from dungeon chests that you wish you can break apart? A group of metal blocks that you wish you could combine to make new alloys, but don’t want to break them into ingots, first? Well, gather all of your above-mentioned problems here because Thermal Recycling Mod will help you address every single one of them.
Thermal Recycling is indeed an add-on for Thermal Expansion 4.x that adds to your Minecraft world several machines that can process all that extra stuff to produce raw materials and do useful things:
- Thermal Recycler: breaks an item down into it’s component parts, or converts them to scrap which can be used for other things.
- Scrap Assessor: allows you to see how an item will be processed based on the processing core installed.
- Composter: takes green and brown material as input and accelerates crop growth around the block.
- Vending Machine: trade those items you don’t need to other players
- Battery Rack: use RF charged devices to energize your power grid.
For a lot of basic items additional Redstone Furnace, Pulverizer, Sawmill, and Induction Smelter recipes are added so that ingredients can be recovered. For example, pulverizing an Iron Door will give back 6 Iron Dust. These recipes show up in the normal fashion with NEI.
The recipes for Thermal Recycler are not available via NEI because of the high variability of what it can produce.To get these recipes use the Scrap Assessor with the corresponding upgrade.
