I haven't played gregtech since 1.6.4 I believe so I find myself a bit lost at the moment. I am probably just missing something, but I can't seem to find a way into level 3 mining (diamonds specifically) without using thaumcraft which I would rather not use. Every material I can find that is level 3 mining capable, requires level 3 mining to get, or tech far advanced from the basic steam macerator I am trying to make. I've already found a graphite vein with diamonds all around it, I just can't get them. Do I just need to get lucky with chest loot to advanced? Or is there some resource I am overlooking that I need to find and mine with my level 2 picks to open up level 3?
The fluid pipes themselves act as tanks, last time I played "gregtech only" I would just make like a 3x3x3 "box of pipes" and it would hold a fair bit of steam. The BC/Open Blocks tanks are cheap because they are tiny, railcraft tanks and drums have "gregified" recipes in this pack, they hold like 20-30 times as much minimum.Did gregtech has his own steam tank? or a liquid tank?
I know I could use Ender IO, Open blocks or BC tanks, but they are too cheap (ender IO not too much) and I feel like Im cheating..
P.D. Im still on bronze-Steel age
