Electrona is my first Tech mod. It first began when I wanted to make a mod with energy, solar panels, batteries, ...
Then I expanded it, making more and more generators and machines, more useful items and armors.
I also wanted to make cleaner GUIs that are more representative of what Electrona is about: a clean mod.


Electrona can work with Machineria, a mod by Hidan.
The EL Converter can convert ELs into VPs and into FE (Forge Energies)
Electrona also work with Patchouli Books. The Electronic Tablet gives you many informations about blocks, machines and custom recipes.
WARNING : Patchouli Books have been dropped since r1.2 version, so use the website instead.

Special Thanks

People who helped me making this mod are below the description, but I wanted to make special thanks to :
- Aixiis (alias super_cube4) for helping design the first GUIs that defined and still define Electrona.
- BananOgato (alias Darklaime) for helping designing things for this mod and being a good texturer.
- Fredzik22 (alias Fredzik) who is also a good texturer of the mod.

great machines. gui. How did you do them? They look so beautiful. My mind was flying really.

The textures of the GUIs are automatically created by MCreator. The people who helped me to design the GUIs and I just opened the .png files of the GUIs in a image editor (photoshop, GIMP, paint.net, ...)

Man, I asked you a few times for like 5 GUIs you told me you never had the time to make them.
I have record of all our DM conversation when I asked you to make the Teleporter GUI, and to remake the Tablet GUI, the Battery GUI and the Purificator GUI but you did not wanted to. I also asked you for your 3D system (I think you did not even tried after all) and most of the GUIs aren't from you.
Having a base design is good but the most important is about how to place elements. Considering I also did a lot of code inside the GUIs, I think that thanking all the people who helped me + putting their names as crew members is good enough.
