Factorycraft is a mod about efficiency and automation. Many of these machines let you process items more efficiently than vanilla. The mod even has its own working power system!!!
This mod is still in development there is much more to come!!
There are a few different base machines. These exist in both tier 1 and tier 2. (use JEI to craft them)
Solid Fuel Generator: Generates power using items that burn in a furnace.
Pulverizer: Turns gravel into flint, and turns ores into dust. Tier 2 one gives 1.5x ore returns. Also turns wood into sawdust and potatoes into starch.
Sawmill: Turns logs into more planks that vanilla. You can put a mold at the top to convert planks to another block or item
Plate press: Compress dust into blocks and compress ingots into plates.
In tier 2 there is also a solar generator, which produces power only during the day if it can see the sky, but it does not use up fuel. It generates at half the speed as the tier 1 solid fuel generator.
In tier 1 there is a mixer to mix dusts with liquids, currently it only mixes sawdust or starch with water to get wood mulch or glue respectively
Put a block that uses power next to a generator for it to receive power.
Glue, cook in a furnace to get slime.
Potassium blocks! Explode on contact with water.
Planned features for next release:
-Recipie for wooden bucket and Mixer
-Tier 2 Mixer
