Any fun uses of octocobble?

    I'm currently benchmarking Colin, using the cobble compressing process as a test.


    I'm only at sextuple at the moment, but with a few more layers of processors (and a bunch of extra quarries) I could probably start producing octocobble fairly soon. Is there any point besides bragging rights?

    I feel like there was something to do with bedrockium, but it might not be in, depending on what you're using. I'm also not sure that counts as "fun" :p

    fill a whole chunk full of one of those extremely compressed stuff?

    how bout a whole chunk of DSUs each filled entirely with octuple compressed cobble?

    seems like a good idea XD

    What I am going to do with mine is use it to make B&W pixel art out of a castle wall. With carpenter blocks overlayed with regular cobblestone and glowstone dust to act as a light source where needed so the whole wall lights up at night, and uses the various levels of compressed cobblestone to do the shading. I think it could look really cool. I'll mix some mossy blocks in there as well.

    Such a place should have weird gravitational effects to really be fun... :D

    I'm pretty sure an octuple compressed cobblestone is dense enough to cause a black hole, lol.

    Apparently not! :) According to a calculation someone did, you'd need to be at about 28-uple for the schwartzchild radius to be bigger than the block, thus being a black hole.

    Of COURSE someone did the math on this already! This is the internet! lol.

    I have to admit, I was just making the assumption :p

    Hehe :D I quite like that highly compressed cobble (Ok, not octuple, but still) is used to get to the Deep Dark - it makes it sound as though the density is warping spacetime enough to allow passage to and from another dimension.

    That my good friends is what happens when someone has an idea and WAY to much free time

    I love such lovely dark blocks, and to have them be so strongly invulnerable? Hard to resist.
    I love the idea of a castle wall of compressed cobble with each layer being a greyscale value in a picture.
    As a witherproof material it can be a little troublesome to get, but I've run that way before.

    Its also wither proof

    Actually according to my calculations it only has to be a 25-uple cobble

    Wait, by wither proof, do you mean to say that I can use compressed cobblestone to block in a wither that I spawn over, say, a golden spike to make a wither juicer? Does it need to be octo, or will any compressed cobblestone work?

    To my knowledge only a septuple (7x) or octuple (8x) compressed cobble are witherproof.

    Also, does anyone know whether the witherproof behaviour extends to the highly compressed cobble in Extra Utilities 2?
