Secret compression

Is there one thing kept in secret or was it just forgot to be mentioned? I dont want to post it, not even here, since it could be a secret... --TakeruDavis 19:55, 17 October 2011 (CEST)

If you're referring to refining a certain Ore by compressing it, it's mentioned on the relevant pages so I don't see any reason to leave it out here.

Nope, I am refering to certain two vanilla items, spherical throwable as input and certain translucent, by normal means unobtainable block as output --TakeruDavis 03:15, 21 October 2011 (CEST)
Oh yeah, that recipe. Mmm. Yeah, that might be seekrit. I suggest asking on the forums. Is it still 1:1 spherical to translucent cube? Around eight months ago I suggested 4:1 spherical to cube, then 1:1 cube to translucent cube. Alblaka said he thought that was reasonable, but I guess he never made the change.

Yes, its still one sphere to one cube and seeing how much secrets are around recipes here, I assumed it could be the case...--TakeruDavis 10:22, 21 October 2011 (CEST)
I can't give an authoritative answer, but my guess is, as that's a mostly cosmetic recipe, it probably isn't intended to be secret.

Well, since it actually can have interesting effects.... in very warm enviroment, it is not just cosmetic --TakeruDavis 12:49, 22 October 2011 (CEST)
You make a good point, I had forgotten that temperature alone could cause those effects now. I do think that it should be the responsibility of server owners/administrators to police or disable grief-happy features of mods, rather than of the mod authors to hide/censor features people could abuse, but that's just my opinion. Sort of restricts the freedom of creativity authors would have otherwise. And I did say "mostly". :P

Well, I actually had in mind energy making machinery that has high temperature as its by-product. I mean The Big One.--TakeruDavis 00:33, 23 October 2011 (CEST)

Should this be placed onto the page?

I recently discovered that if you compress 3 netherack, you get a nether brick. Is this meant to be a secret?
