Vanilla blocks changed
|Obsidian||Explosion resistance changed from 6000 to 60, this allows nuke and reactor to destroy obsidian on default power(up to 6 blocks).|
|Water||Explosion resistance changed from 500 to 30, this allows TNT and ITNT to destroy water blocks.|
|Lava||Explosion resistance changed from 500 to 30, this allows TNT and ITNT to destroy lava blocks.|
|Lava bucket||Only smelts 12 blocks in an iron furnace.|
|Redstone||Can be used as power source with electric machines, provide 500 EU per item, act just like Single-Use Battery.|
|Cacti||Can now be burned in any furnace for 50 fuel points.|
|Sugar Cane||Can now be burned in any furnace for 50 fuel points.|
|Copper Ore||Found on layers 10 to 70(rate 15:10). Used most notably to make Copper Cable, Bronze and Dense Copper Plates.|
|Tin Ore||Found on layers 0 to 40(rate 25:6). Used most notably to make Rechargeable Batteries and cells. Dust used for reactor components crafting.|
|Uranium Ore||Found on layers 0 to 64(rate 20:3). Used to make Refined Uranium.|
Generation rate is number of generation attempts per chunk : number of ore generated per attempt. 20:3 means that ore will attempt to generate up to 20 times and will generate up to 3 ore per attempt, generation attempts can fail.
|Rubber Tree||Mod relates trees which have dark yellow logs and light green leaves. Cannot be found anywhere except Swamp, Forest and Taiga biomes. They are extremely abundant in Swamp, Forest and Taiga biomes and are easy to find through their unique "wing" on their leaf design. Their wood is special and sometimes has resin holes thet may be right clicked on with a Treetap to get Sticky Resin, used in Rubber production.
Can be crafted into 3 jungle planks or smelted into spruce log. Leaves cannot be harvested and have 2% chance of dropping a sapling.
World generation rate of Rubber Trees depends on biome:
|Forest 2-12% chance to generate 1-6 Rubber Trees per chunk.|
|Taiga 0-6% chance to generate 0-3 Rubber Trees per chunk.||Swampland 10-30% chance to generate 5-15 Rubber Trees per chunk.|
Minimal tree height is 2 max is 8. Every log has a 25% chance of having a resin hole, max 3 holes per tree.
|Tin Cable||Special uninsulated tin cable which handles up to 5 EU/t (ultra-low voltage) have 0.025 loss per block.
Uninsulated cables cannot be painted. Uninsulated cables deal 1 point of damage per 64 EU current rowned down. Most effective tool for cables removal is chainsaw. Used in crafting recipes.
|Copper Cable||Uninsulated copper cable which handles up to 32 EU/t (low voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.29
|Insulated Copper Cable||Insulated copper cable which handles up to 32 EU/t (low voltage). Insulation allows the cable to be painted, reduces distance-based energy loss and completely removes electric shock. You can also apply insulation to uninsulated copper cable by putting the uninsulated cable and a single piece of Rubber (shapeless) in a crafting table.
EU loss rate is 0.21
|Gold Cable||Uninsulated gold cable which handles up to 128 EU/t (medium voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.5
|Single-Insulated Gold Cable||Single-insulated gold cable which handles up to 128 EU/t (medium voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.4501
|Double-Insulated Gold Cable||Double-insulated gold cable which handles up to 128 EU/t (medium voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.402
|HV Cable||Uninsulated HV cable which handles up to 512 EU/t (high voltage) and 2048 EU/t (extreme voltage).
EU loss rate is 1.0
|Single-Insulated HV Cable||Single-insulated HV cable which handles up to 512 EU/t (high voltage) and 2048 EU/t (extreme voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.949
|Double-Insulated HV Cable||Double-insulated HV cable which handles up to 512 EU/t (high voltage) and 2048 EU/t (extreme voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.9
|Triple-Insulated HV Cable||Triple-insulated HV cable which handles up to 512 EU/t (high voltage) and 2048 EU/t (extreme voltage).
EU loss rate is 0.8
Although in-game it currently lists "4xInsulated", that is incorrect as you are adding a layer of insulation each time, not doubling the insulation each time. It is actually "3xIns" and should get renamed eventually in some future patch.
|Glass Fibre Cable||Special glass fibre cable which handles up to 512 EU/t (high voltage). It is the only kind of uninsulated cable which can be painted and gives no electric shock. Glass fibre cable is useful for long-distance wiring, since it has the smallest energy loss of all kinds of cable - 1 EU every 40 blocks (0.025 EU per block).|
|Detector Cable||Outputs Redstone current when powered, support up to 512 EU flow(cannot be placed on HV lines).
EU loss rate is 0.5 (Since v1.62 this is no longer a viable cable option to replace glass fibre!)
|Splitter Cable||Prevents the transfer of EU while being powered by Redstone, support up to 512 EU flow.
EU loss rate is 0.025

|Uranium Cell||Generates 1,000,000-5,000,000 EU at 5-25 EU/t (depending on efficiency, that is, cell adjacency), but generates excess heat which must be eliminated through cooling. When it decays, 25% of time turns into a Near-Depleted Uranium Cell, which once recharged, turns into a fresh new cell.|
|Dual Uranium Cell||These act as if they're 2 cells in a Grid pattern. 1 Dual cell acts as 2x Uranium Cells are side-by-side. The output from a single slot used is 20EU/t because of 5EU/t per cell, as well as the +5EU/t per cell adjacent to another.|
