Alright, so it seems that the way forward would to remove one of the recipes and re-define it via minetweaker, but there is my problem, I cannot decide what I would want the recipe to be for one of them as I want to be able to craft both but I want it to be balanced, any ideas guys?

mek tools are stronger than diamond, and mek gets bronze later in the tech tree. i recommend changeing the mek tools.

Yes, but to what exactly? What recipe should I use?

Also what is your opinion on veinminer? good or bad?

maybe only let them use mek bronze and call them "refined" bronze tools?

imo, veinminer is nice, but shoul only be allowed on high-end tools.

Hm, good idea actually. One question, is there actually a way to change the name of an item with minetweaker?

I wasn't expecting that to be honest. I honestly thought that you might reply with a no but I am pleasantly surprised. God I love minetweaker.

Edit: Can this be done in 1.6.4?

I am really really sorry for annoying you but from what I can understand/see it would be tile.chest but what would a bronze pickaxe be called, should I just use the item ID or..?

Apologies in advance :c
i think you use the ID. i think so.(i use 1.7 mostly so idk)

Either one works. Just don't forget your <>'s if you use ids.

Edit: damn I'm late. I probably shoulda refreshed before posting

How exactly would I go about thanking you for all of this?

I cannot believe I managed to get this to work, I love it! I appreciate everyone helping me and I am even more in love with minetweaker 3 than minetweaker 2

Accidentally hit reply instead of edit, how to merge posts?

I noticed that while playing in a modpack with both Mek and Metallurgy. Metallurgy made bronze incredibly cheap and Mek made it incredibly stronk. How does Mek produce bronze? How crazy does it have to be to be higher than diamonds and as powerful as obsidian?

God I love mekanism. I love all the machines and all of their cool noises etc. It just feels industrial :D

What mines faster, bronze pickaxe or steel pickaxe from mekanism? (Both Mekanism tools)
