I just noticed I forgot the Patreon Post, no wonder since the Editor is so broken I didn’t spend any real time making those short Posts. I would have had time yesterday to write something bigger, but i simply forgot about it, and now I dont have any energy for anything Blog Post alike, so I hope the Changelog is enough.

To make it short, I am always a bit physically exhausted when I arrive back home (asthma), and this week I happen to need to be outside 4 times instead of 2-3, so I hope I at least get something done on the GT6 front this week.

Another GregTech Update has been released!

Cue the fully automatic Changelog:


Logistics Item Covers can now handle exact Stacksizes for Insertion and Extraction. Also Logistics Tanks for storing Fluids! 1 Million Liters per Barrel alike Tank.

And as always, the Patreon Post should follow up later today or somewhen tomorrow. :wink:

The Patreon Post is even more broken, than the previous ones, so no sense in linking to it.

Since I didnt really do a proper update Post last week due to lack of Time, broken Patreon Editor, and general physical exhaustion, I will do both now:

First lets do the one real non Logistics Feature, which is turning molten Copper into molten Annealed Copper and molten Iron into molten Wrought Iron using the Smelter. Simple and straight forward.

As for Logistics:

  • There is now Covers that can display the CPU Load on a per CPU Type basis, so you know which thing to upgrade next if the load becomes too much.
  • We got Mass Storages with integrated Logistics Support now. They are slightly more expensive than Logistics Wire but less expensive than Logistics Wire + Storage Cover, so ideally balanced, at least Osmium wise. You can upcraft any Metal Mass Storage into a Logistics one.
  • Analogous to that we also got Logistics Tanks, which are simply 1000000L Drums that can store pretty much anything and auto-connect to the Logistics Network. They also keep the last Fluid they stored as a Filter until you whack them with a Rubber Hammer.
  • And last but not least, the Regulator Mode for Item Import and Export Covers, so you can insert or extract precise amounts of Items.

So there we go with the Update itself, I guess I should also do some Blog Update, but that doesn’t belong here. Thank you all for your Support and Download Page Link is above so I dont need it here. ^^

Earlygame Recipe improvements for making Bronze, Brass and Bismuth Bronze as well as for getting Dust from Crushed Ores. I’ve been somewhat busy IRL and it’s the last hot week of Summer so I didn’t do much GT6. ^^"

Lets see if Patreon fixed Oneboxes at least, I know for sure they broke something that overbot used on my IRC channel (as in they turned the Description Text of the Page into an empty String), so I am pessimistic about it.

Aaaaaaand it became a regular Link and not a Onebox.

The Reactor Core is now stable enough for a Release. The IC2-Type Coolant will be used for keeping the current Bbehavior, other Coolants might have different Mechanics in the future.

So I mentioned earlier how the Temperature was yoyo-ing me around, and by now everything is fine but it was kinda too late for this weeks release to add some more content. If my “plans” for reducing the impact of temperature and breathing issues are going to work, then i should be fine for a while.


So as for Plans for GT6, Single-Rod Nuclear Reactor Core Blocks are gonna be worked on this time. Just need to find a good way to split up the 2x2 Cores when placed adjacent to the 1x1 Cores. ^^

The 1x1 Reactor Core is much easier to handle than the 2x2, and yes both can work together adjacently. Also Geiger Counter and a Hand Drill.

So, I think now the Multiblock Crucible is ready enough to actually make a short Post about it. In case you thought I forgot the Update Post, no I didn’t, I just got a lot of Bug Reports (including a huge Dupe Glitch) before I started writing it so I didn’t wanna announce it yet. :wink:

Also we got a new and changed way to make Steel. I decided to go the “lazy” way and make KU Engines supply Air to the Crucibles (Instead of making actual Bellows). This not only makes Tech (Engines) instead of Resources (Graphite) a requirement for Steel, it also adds some new mechanic into the Crucible!

I also have to say that ever after I have done the Nuclear Reactors, I felt a bit burned out of making GT6. Guess its good that there is only 8 weeks of it left. Somewhat cant wait to actually make my own Game a thing. I’m not sure if this is just because of the “deadline” or if it is because coding with MC as a backend is just so Garbage that it demotivates me, especially with those huge compile and loading times.
Probably more because since I started researching Code for my Game I realised just how crappy Minecraft and Java actually are, and that I want something better than that. It’s definitely not any of my physical Issues, my Motivation to do Stuff got much better since I got the daily Asthma Spray back, just that the “Stuff” I do isn’t GT6, but actually Plans for my Game.

Time to write the short Patreon Post that is supposed to link to this. I wonder if they fixed the Editor Copy/Paste Issue finally.

WHAT THE FUCK!? Now I cant post at ALL…

Here is my original Patreon Post that I thought I could publish but nope…

I made the Multiblock Crucible a thing and changed the Steel Recipe. This is essentially the Blast Furnace Update. I did not make an Update Post last week because of a lot of Bug Reports about the Large Crucible.
Some more Info can be found on the Forum Posts because copypaste still causes the Patreon Editor to screw up (I tried).
Speaking of screw up, Patreon has this thing called Exit Surveys, and until I checked it today (I check it whenever I see someone left) it only said “financial situation changed” as a reason for almost everybody (except for people leaving a custom message).
Now I do value honest feedback, and when I looked at it and scrolled down I noticed that a LOT of them retroactively changed all at once or even appeared out of nowhere (for times where I previously assumed no exit survey was told by a user), mostly changing to “only became patron to receive benefit and now i got it” (which is a perfectly fine reason in my book).
What I really dont like on this is that Patreon didn’t tell this earlier, since they apparently already had that “Data” at hand to present it to me now. Those Surveys are for feedback, people give it usually to be heard, so that the Artist can see the criticism and maybe adjust to said Feedback. Hiding parts of this is not a good Idea at all. :confused:
Anyways, I dont want the Editor to randomly mess up all my writing so have a Download Page Link for convenience and thank you all for your Support. ^^

I hit the damn publish button it reacts to me clicking it but then does absolutely nothing…

Edit: Well NOW it worked…
