All i want is a mod that makes it so that i can turn charcoal into coal and vice versa. this is primarily for stacking reasons. However, this also makes it so that i can make a coal farm using redpower 2 and make coal dust in industrial craft. Please anybody help it can't be that hard i would guess. just a new recipe right? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
Thanks in advance!
If at all possible could it be created by using an industrial craft compressor to compress 4 charcoal into 1 coal? If not then a furnace works too..... Preferably the compressor though!
Coal is carbon created throught thousand of years with pression while charcoal is made by turning an item into a carbon saturated item. To create coal, you would need something that adds carbon, pressure and heat for a specific amount of time.
there is no point, charcoal is the EXACT same and it just has a different name
in vanilla yes. but in some mods there is a difference. like in IC2 you can't make carbon fiber out of charcoal, or in Rail Craft you can't make coke coal out of charcoal. so there is a need for it.
that is why I need it I want to make an automated coke coal factory (to feed a steam boiler) and I need a constant stream of coal, mining isn't reliable enough but an auto tree farm will produce like clockwork.
it might be hard to code that as most devices are designed for a 1 block input.
It's not, the compressor allows for multiple inputs as in the cases of Netherrack and Copper, all you would have to do is something like
Ic2Recipes.addCompressorRecipe(new ItemStack(Item.coal, 4, 1), new ItemStack(Item.coal, 1, 0));
