This is a tutorial on replicating items. There are a lot of items that can be replicated out of EU. Before starting make sure you have:
- a MFSU,
- vast amounts of EU and
- a ton of resources.
Replication is a very expensive luxus and you won't be able to start if you don't fulfill the pre-conditions.
The first thing what you'll need is called Uu-Liquid or Universal-Usage-Liquid. To make this you need a mass fabricator:
This machine will accept 512-p (high voltage) and create the Uu-Liquid very slowly. It is strongly recommended to feed this thing with scrap, otherwise it will consume 10 times as much energy! Creating one bucket of Uu-Liquid requires roughly 22 million EU if you supply more than 500 stacks of scrap. Don't worry, most items only require tiny amounts of Uu-Liquid. For example dirt requires 0.00016 buckets and diamond 0.035 buckets of Uu-Liquid per item.
Now that you have your Uu-Liquid you will need a scanner:
Before scanning an item you need a way to store the information the scanner will output. This information is also called 'Pattern'. To do so you need some memory crystals and a pattern storage.
Either place the pattern storage directly adjacent to the scanner or put a memory crystal inside the scanner. Now put any item you want to replicate in the scanner and power it with high voltage (512-p). The scanner will analyze the item and give information on how many Uu-Liquid and EU you'll need to create the item. Note that not all items can be scanned. Scanning one item will roughly consume 850000 EU.
Replication requires four things:
- A pattern
- some EU
- A replicator
In the meantime you should have the first three things. The forth is crafted like this:
The Replicator accepts up to 2048 EU-p (extreme voltage). To get the pattern into the replicator you need a pattern storage with the stored information adjacent to it. The Uu-Liquid can be supplied by either using universal cells or buildcraft pipes. That's it! Simply press the green arrow and the replication starts. This will consume some EU and when finished you get your desired item.
Here are some examples for items you can scan and replicate:
|Dirt||155.4 µB (micro buckets)|
|Diamond||35.34 mB (milli buckets)|
|Grass Block||26.35 mB|
|Iron Ore||1.771 mB|
|Lapis Lazuli Block||68.37 mB|
|Iridium Ore||120 mB|
|Iridium Plate||537.2 mB|
|Magma Cream||533.9 mB|
|Glowstone Dust||39.94 mB|
|MFSU||11.63 B (buckets)|
|Refined Uranium||11.34 mB|
|Block of Redstone||11 mB|
|Sticky Resin||6.331 B|
|Pellets of RTG Fuel||933.2 mB|
|Enriched Uranium Nuclear Fuel||31 mB|
