I might suggest a bit more detailed description as well. I personally NEVER watch videos, and think the screenshot rule is stupid for many mods. But a decent short and then long description are ALWAYS necessary. Not everyone has the required internet to load screenshots for every page all the time.
Your short one is fine, "this is a mod about transformation unnecessary recources [sic] to more necessary"
Personal preference, does not excuse you from the fact that information does exist in a greater amount than the screenshots and text.
so if a video is available, it might be worth looking at if information is scarce.
Information is information, only personal preference dictates how it is presented and consumed.
Do Extractinators require power such as Buildcraft's Minecraft Joules, IC2's Energy Units, Universal Electricity Joules, or Redstone Flux? Can you MAKE them require power via a config option? Do they use another fuel source like coal, or something else?
Currently, no power system is required to get up and going with any of the extractinators.
Personal opinion now: could he require some sort of energy to operate? sure, but not my call and i like the independence of it from some sort of power system.
What precisely do you PUT in an extractionator?
Are the various extractinators limited to certain items?
Do you use cobblestone for all of them?
Only Cobble/Gravel/Netherrack/End Stone, or can I put other things into them like ores, dirt, wood, or obsidian?
Each primary extractinator (cobble, gravel, netherrack, endstone) is limited to accepting ONLY their specific materials that are referenced by their name.
How does one add items to the extractinators for processing? Via right click?
Can items be pumped in with automated item transport?
Hold a stack of an item in your hand that is compatible with the particular extractinator that you are looking at...
Then hold right click...
Automation with pipes directly? Unfortunately not right now.
BUT! and I do mean BUT!!!
I have found a way to automate, without having to be AFK.
Thermal Expansion has a machine that is called the Autonomous Activator...
It can have materials piped in and it will right click objects in the world without needing the player.
at that point you only need an item collecting device to pick up whatever the extractinator produces.
Is TOTAL automation possible?
What rough benefit does an advanced extractinator give? Better capacity? Faster operation? Wider range of things to extractionate? Ability to automate? Joining together of all 4 types of extractinator?
The AOE(Advanced Ore Extractinator) has these attributes.
-- All in one Cobblestone/Gravel/Netherrack/Endstone Extractinator.
-- does not require a multiblock casing (craft it, and then go crazy with it)
-- Accepts sandstone to produce sand (ratio seems to be 3 sand for every sandstone)
-- doubles the output of vanilla ores (iron and gold, haven't tested other types yet)
Does this mod add ANY world generation or dungeon loot?
Does it use the ore dictionary for tungsten? Is the only place to get tungsten with your mod by using an Ender Ore Extractinator?
Ore Dictionary for Tungsten?
*If you have Nether Ores Mod, you can have naturally generating tungsten in the nether to get the AOE sooner.
Also, you might want to sort the drop chance lists more fully by drop chance instead of the hybrid method you're currently using.
I agree, better documentation of what can be extractinated and the results would be nice to have.
Side Idea, A lava extractinator, (if a power system becomes a requirement, this one merely uses lava as both fuel and feedstock).
