    That appears to be an alternate recipe or you fucked up your configs. I would say the biggest change lately in GregTech is that crafting a log into planks only gives you 2 planks now. I couldn't find the config for it.

    That's a GT v3.10 change.
    So are the logs.

    Another new feature is that you can disable ALL of greg's recipe nerfs (including bronze and tin buckets) with a single config change, if you want.

    Its more of joke, changing it makes the bronze recipe give you 111 bronze the tin bucket recipe gives you the same number of buckets. Greg's way of saying that you can use them to get unlimited, may as well just save you time.
    I personally removed GregTech from my LAN server as these latest changes are just fucking preposterous, if I wanted it this hard I would play with Better than Wolves.

    BTW offers an actual challenge... as well as an annoying author to boot!

    BTW hard? Unforgiving maybe but hard?

    OP: I'm wondering how many item ids he plans on using in some of these down right ludicrous recipes.

    This can be avoided with TiC I guess.

    Who uses vanilla iron tools anymore anyway?

    I do agree that this is insanity though.

    I agree that greg's now getting a bit too crazy with everything.
    he's going towards mods like BTW and TFC, but he has the problem his mod relies on other mods

    There's no way that can be real that's just preposterous. Like I can understand hard but come on man.

    Well I am pretty sure this is a joke because I just checked out the changelog and I don't see anything mentioning this.

    If this is indeed for real, he's taking things a bit too far. There is a fine line to walk, which we all call balance. He's not thinking things through, he's just kinda trying to make GT the epitome of hard, as to create a legacy, rather than an enjoyable mod, if this is indeed not a joke.

    Though balancing in multiplayer is extremely difficult, due to the exploits making it easy for anybody to become "king", I think the point of FTB is to build these systems, perfect these systems, automate these systems, sustain these systems and maintain them. However you go about it, as long as it doesn't effect the work of others, like really... Unless there is some sort of server-wide economic system going, where these exploits can directly impact the enjoyability of the game for others... Even then, I highly doubt anybody is smart enough to create, let alone maintain such a system successfully. I can already think of so many variables that would require at least a team dedicated to managing that, as per my post in that other thread.

    Even the non-GT IC2, as easy as it is, has merit for those who aren't as technically inclined as me or other players. It still allows them a chance to delve into the world which we call in real life, engineering, without having to be one or in training. Playing at my level, well, yeah. You think FTB is hard...

    FTB is a game.

    It's most certainly no joke.
    Both pictures are with GT3.10.

    Gregorium Ingot.

    Are there still people that think Gregtech is not a joke?

    In case you don't know what a Gregorium Ingot is, look up flint and steel's recipe in NEI, it's the alternative recipe.

    Chaos_Therum New Member

    but how do you make the plates don't you need a plate bending machine which is a mid game thing. whereas a iron sword IMHO is very early. Man greg sucks I love the stuff he adds but I don't like his nerfs
