    Gonna throw a shoutout thank you to @Nuclear_Creeper0 for this one: the metallurgic infuser does indeed make bronze! And, at least in Regrowth’s settings, not too inefficiently - for 6 ingots worth (5 copper, and 1 tin dust) you get 5 bronze. While slightly inferior to the smeltery route in terms of material efficiency, the gains in terms of speed and convenience make it an outright winner :) cheers chap!

    I got two things!

    1) I *finally* tried thermal dynamics pipes. They are exactly as awesome as everyone kept trying to tell me they were. Just set up the most compact, simplest and most importantly fastest to build a diamond set up little mid game sorting machine/compact processing plant.

    2) EnderIO wireless chargers support baubles, and more importantly, Actually Baubles. Basically, that translates to my 2 16 million RF batteries are always charged when I leave without ever having to think about it. Magnet, too. Without having them take up inventory space. Beautiful, OP synergy!

    Don't sleep on the Silent's Gems scepters! There's a bit of setup, but they can be pretty strong. For that matter, I think I underappreciated the Katanas, too.

    Normally, you can only hold a very small amount of chaos, like 10 hits worth, maybe, so I thought the magic effects were pretty much a gimmick, but I found out you can hold a lot more with an item, and you can build a thing that generates it for you at your base. Now that I can hold hundreds of charges, I went to make the strongest scepter I could think of, which ended up being three of something like leopidolite (sorry for butchering him the name, but it'll be obvious if you have em), one moonstone and one Opal, all supercharged.

    I'm running scaling health, and deep into it, so I'm fighting zombies with 400 hearts. This unenchanted staff is kind of making my highly enchanted/boosted/configured sword look weak.the magic is way different from the swords. It appears to follow targets and does decent damage.

    The Katana is an interesting hybrid, too. Weaker sword with a strong spell effect.

    I give the credit for this one to Tsukiumy who gives me regular handy hints in my LP series. The actuality additions precision dropper can drop upwards. It can also push through a block! This means you can make something like a 6 sided growth accelerator in applied energistics with a precision dropper underneath the bottom block. The ranged collector can also pick up through blocks and has a built in white list so no need for further filtering :) with this you can make a very compact setup.

    *Never be afraid to ask when you do not understand*

    Inventory Pets. I made a squid pet and grabbed a stack of fish. Jumped in the ocean, fast swim, perfectly clear vision, no need for air. I don't think I stepped on land again for an hour. E enjoy better in the Cavern mod water dimension! And the anvil pet in my hot bar repairs my gear and only eats a few iron nuggets per game day. Squid me is going to build a base (not a pineapple) under the sea...

    Call me a noob but I was testing a Tinker's hammer while mining yesterday and found that "Monster Eggs" (silverfish) won't break when you break the cobble surrounding them *PHEW!* :D
    [Edit] Of course, this assumes the block you're targeting ISN'T a Monster Egg :rolleyes:

    My other favorite new toy is the drill from Actually Additions. With speed, 3x3 and silk touch modules it's like walking through solid rock. Or dirt or sand. And veinminer for extra grabs. I setup a modpack with no quarries, so I do need to be a bit of a burrowing machine. Love the cleverness of the modders.

    Also, with a loot bag opener over a hopper over an uncrafting grinder, it's like a bag of candy that never runs out.

    The Drying Basin from Integrated Dynamics. Where have you been all my "wtf where are all the cows in this spawn" life?

    1 zombie flesh + 5 seconds = leather.

    So I've been playing DW20 1.12, and there's that MeeCreeps mod, so after I get my hands on a decent amount of diamonds and gold, I decided to try it out.

    That mod is so OP. It's like some kind of early game quarry, you can tell it to dig straight down to bedrock with stairs, and flatten an area, build tunnels, and so far I've gotten 11 more diamonds in like 5 minutes.

    I like OP and cheaty exploits :p

    I will add a flesh to leather recipe if no gadget can do it. In my current pack it's the seasoning rack from rockhounding that does it.

    Actually Additions Atomic Reconstructor also converts zombie flesh to leather. And sand to soul sand and quartz to prismarine.

    Cooked meat on Tinker's Drying Racks will also make leather. I think Botania with the green catalyst can make flesh into leather as well.

    So I didn't realise that the Lost Cities mod actually has a dimension dedicated to it! Which means with the right setup, you could fly to a planet with Advanced Rocketry, only to find what appears to be the remains of a long dead / abandoned civilisation! This is giving me ideas...

    I always wanted RFTools / Mystcraft to have a "civilization lost" page which would conditionally trigger city construction using lost cities / city walls mods or that other algorithmic structure generator.

    I've gotten to the point where I intentionally try to avoid it anymore, because otherwise it'd be the only thing I use. A properly made super-tier paxel from Silent's Gems with the right enchants makes an almost-too-good alternative, as I learned in my latest playthrough.
