making this topic to put all my mods in one place to collect some feedback if hopefully you guys are interested in them!
My main mod is Element 84 introducing alternative, slightly cheaty way of handling science and ores.
Everything is in very early stage of making, I still have little to no knowledge/skills on how to make custom graphics so unfortunately for the time being I`m forced to use vanilla machines with different properties.
But I will try to figure this out and hopefully introduce my own graphics in the future.
Pretty new to modding Factorio but I hope my little mods can give you some fun. All feedback good or bad is of course welcome! I`m trying to expand and improve my mods constantly.
I`m trying to contact few other mod makers to ask permission to include their metals/ores as a possible outcome of my production chain, hopefully they will respond.
JR Element 84:
This is a "Liquid" mod I made for my personal use, but I think You guys will have fun with it!
I present to you Element 84 - a mysterious fluid that can easily be converted into many useful things!
You can obtain Element 84 from Mineral Oil (extracted from Copper Ore).
With your tanks full of Element 84 you can choose to convert it into (Yes, you guessed it!) Liquid Science or ores like Iron, Copper, Sulfur, even Uranium.
Or simply craft it into its Solid form and use it as a long burning fuel compacted in to tasty white cubes.
The liquid form of Science allows for alternate way of storage and distribution around your base, and obviously you can craft it into science packs.
Making Liquid Science requires additional fluids and materials.
Element 84 does NOT convert into Space Science because... its Space Science.
As a bonus, you can use the Element 84 Chemical Plant to squeeze some Coal Sludge and produce Crude Oil from it! You will also need Coal Sludge to make Liquid military Science. Plant can also be use to extract early light and Heavy Oil and produce small amounts of Lubricant.
The Element 84 is heavily inspired by two mods that I've been using lately -
Liquid Ore Conversion by Cyfagy and Liquify Science and Big Lab by DellAquila –
Thank You both for the fun mods and inspiration.
Alternative way of handling copper, iron and crafting steel.
Mod adds special electric melting furnace and molten form of copper, iron, steel. One copper/iron ore going through the process should result in 2 plates (plates are crafted in standard assembler mk2).
Steel is made by melting 5 iron plates to molten steel and crafting it in assembler mk2 (results in 2 steel plates).
As a bonus mod gives you molten form of plastic for alternative storage/transport.
Simple mod that adds Wooden Pellet, Coal Briquettes burner fuel, Crushed Coal (intermediate product), and higher tier Enriched Coal Fuel (similar to Solid Fuel block).
( I will add proper changelogs txt files in the next updates, sorry for that.. )
