If you haven't checked new IC2 version for 1.6.2 please do. A lot has changed as it was in 1.5.2 and earlier versions. First one - you don't use refined iron - instead you use plates (iron, tin, copper, gold, bronze) and item casings (used for batteries and other stuff) from forge hammer or by new machine - metal former. Cutter - used for making cables (copper, tin, gold) or later by metal former. Cables can send max amount of EU - tin 32, copper 128, gold 512, ultra cable 2048, fibre cable 8124 EU/t. If you use Batbox, ESU, MFE or MFSU you must use energy transport upgrades - maxed uses 3 per machine - using MFSU. New energy storage DESU (or something like this) can storage 300k EU and can send 128 EU/t. MFE can now storage 4 000 000 EU - 512 EU/t. MFSU can now storage 40 000 000 EU and will send 2048 EU/t. UU matter has totally changed. Now in basic configuration when you insert more than 512 EU/t into mass fabricator it will explode. Second it will produce liquid UU - i haven't figured it out how to get iridium and other stuff. Macerating ores have changed a lot. Macerator makes crushed ore. Then you can make 2 things - simply put it into furnace and get 2 times ingots or put it into new machine called ore washing machine - it will make purified ore, 2 little piles of ore you procesed and stone dust. Then you can put purified ore into another new machine called thermal centrifuge - it will make dust and small pile of other ore - iron dust and small pile of gold (9 piles makes 1 dust). So you can make almost 2,5 ingots from 1 ore. Minus of ore washing machine is that it need 1 bucket of water for processing - right now there isn't thermal expasnion version for 1.6.2 so you must use pump with 4 redstone engines and fluid pipes to get the water into machine. Thermal centrifuge must heat up to fully process. Each machine uses 32 EU/t. Those changes makes IC2 closer to GregTech mod so some people will hate this. But right now only IC2 and Factorization have ability to double/ triple ores. I thing that when full version of IC2 will be release some changes will be than the current 150 version have. In case of IC2 good that this mod have changed. Please don't change this post into flame war about how IC2 is bad and other mods are better - it's a post about that. Please write if you have found out other changes the those i wrote.
