So, Tekkit is our first Modpack review of the Year. So, I was thinking, what should I explain to you guys in Tekkit (See this link for what the difference of Lite and Classic). So, I decided to explain: Equivalent Exchange. In Equivalent Exchange 2, it adds a WHOLE lot of helpful stuff you can use, like Energy Condensers, Dark Matter, Red Matter, and Flying Rings. So I went through all this stuff, and chose to explain:
(In order from Left to Right: Ring of Arcana, Red Matter, Energy Condenser)
The Energy Condenser is an Amazing Chest like thing, and the reason why it’s Amazing is because what it does. The Energy Condenser uses stuff called EMC and lots of things have EMC in Tekkit Classic. The Energy Condenser uses EMC to convert items into other items that also have EMC. To craft the Energy Condenser, you will need: 4 Obsidian, 4 Diamond, and an Alchemical Chest, which is crafted by (in slots): 1 Green Covalence Dust, 1 Turquoise Covalence Dust, 1 Blue Covalence Dust, in slots: 1,2,3 (in order of which they are listed) Stone in: 4,6, a Diamond in 5, Iron in: 7,9 and a Chest in 8. Then to craft the ENERGY CONDENSER, you craft like this: Obsidian: 1,3,7,9 Diamond: 2,4,6,8 and an Alchemy Chest in 5. So lets talk EMC values. Say you had 1 Lapis, and you wanted to trade it to me for, Gold. I wouldn’t do that, because 1 Lapis, equals: 0.421 Gold, so until you can get enough EMC, you can’t get 1 Gold from Lapis. So, if you want to make Gold into Diamond, you need: 4 Gold to make: 1 Diamond.
Red Matter is a CRUCIAL part of EE2. Reason being, it makes way for: The BEST tools you could ever imagine, and also: The Ring of Arcana. But Red Matter is VERY expensive. To make one Red Matter you need: 3 Dark Matter, and 6 Aeternalis Fuel. The Awesome thing about Aeternalis is that it has the EXACT same EMC as Diamond, making it very, very helpful in a Condenser, as there is NO loss of EMC or Gain. The great thing about Red Matter is that is AMAZING. But, the thing most people don’t understand is that YOU DO NOT MINE IT YOU CRAFT IT. You need a lot of Aeternalis to make 1 Red Matter you would need exactly: 22 Aeternalis to craft Red Matter. Because you need Dark Matter, and 8 Aeternalis into Dark Matter (plus a Diamond block if you’re wondering) it takes exactly: 3 Dark Matter, and 6 Aeternalis altogether.
Red Matter tools are a great way to head while doing Tekkit. Even though they are VERY expensive, once you get there, there is no looking back. So, what you need to make the 1st Tier Red Matter Tools, you need DARK MATTER TOOLS. So to craft the DARK matter tools, you need, to make them all: 12 Dark Matter, and 13 Diamond. You make them like normal tools, except there is one extra tool, the HAMMER (The Picks of ALL tools will be at the bottom of the post). To craft the RED matter tools you need: 14 Red Matter, ALL the Dark Matter Tools (as you put them in slot 5, apart from the sword which goes in 8), and 6 Dark Matter. I would tell you, but It’s to complicated.
The Last on the list are the Bands/Rings. So to start off, we have the Ring of Ignition (ROI).
This ring likes to light things on fire in a large radius, so be careful. It’s crafted with: Flint & Steels in 1,3,7,9, Mobius Fuel in 2,8, Dark Matter in 4,6 and an Iron Band in 5. Hve fun lighting EVERYTHING on fire!
The Next is: The Swiftwolf Rending Gale (SWRG). This ring makes you FLY, shoots green Tornados, while raining, if you are looking at a place, LIGHNING will strike, and makes REPULSIVE force fields. But, most of this cost EMC, and will take it from your inventory (if you have redstone don’t use a Rending Gale, as it will eat that up and you’ll have none left). But still, it makes you fly, so keep Glowstone Dust on you. It’s crafted with: 4 DM in 1,3,7,9, Feathers in 2,4,6,8 and an Iron Band in 5. You also take no Fall Damage.
Band/Ring No.3 is here. This one is called the Harvest Goddess Band (HGB). It makes things grow extrodinary fast, Cacti, and Sugar Canes grow exceptionally fast, so if you set up a Block Breakers Layout, but with sugarcanes, you’ll get a lot. But anyway, a great thing about the Harvest Goddess Band is that it makes food grow VERY fast, so if you need any, with this band you’ll get food quick. The way to craft this band is: 4 Saplings in 1,3,7,9 2 flowers in 2,8 DM in 4,6 and an Iron Band in 5.
Zero Ring (ZR). This ring makes snow go every where, so if you need to make an area with snow, here you go (rhyme not intended). If you left click with this ring, it launches 1 snowball (you have infinte) if you right click, if buts snow EVERY where within a 3,5,7,9, or 11 block radius of the player (you). It also freezes water instantly. To craft: Snow Blocks in 1,3,7,9 2 snowblls in: 2,8 DM in 4,6 an Iron Band in 5.
Now we come to the last ring, or should I say the ring that is combined with RM and all the Rings/Bands above. Yes. This is pretty much a SUPER ring. It has all the combined powers of the Rings/Bands above, so it’s pretty epic. It uses a power charge for Yellow. So you need to learn how to use this ring, yes? Probably. You use C to change it’s mode, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue (as you can see from the Pic at the very top) and G to power it. It does the same as the rings above (and is SLIGHTLY less powerful, but it’s all in one ring so it’s pretty good) There’s only 1 problem, it’s VERY expensive. 3,742,844 EMC, approx 457 Diamonds, that expensive. But to crafting: ROI: 1, SWRG: 3, HGB: 4, ZR 3. And then RM in every other slot. And Voila. You also get the HGB and ZR back after crafting. Now before this post ends, the Ring can be used to craft things! Like: Ice, and Grass Blcocks. You but the Ring in 1 and Dirt/ Water Bucket in 3, and you get the (if crating Ice) Bucket and the Ring back (and if you craft Grass) you get the ring back.
So that ends Tekkit Classic week. Next time it will be Tekkit Lite, and this Modpack is Very fun as well. Have Fun, Daniel
