You tired of going around the world, fighting monsters in dungeons and making enormous machines for a lot of resources just to get a little bit of Iridium Shards? Let's end with this and bring some old IC experience to IC2!
Iridium Source is a simple mod that adds Platina Ore and a way to produce Iridium without useless excess ore-products.
Only REAL METEORITE ORE PROCESSING.
IC2 MOD IS NECESSARY, of course if you don't want to crash minecraft.
First - mine some Platina Ore in your world(usually appears to be at 0-15 block level), or you can find it anywhere in both Nether and End.
Insert any of 3 ores in macerator, it will give you 1 Platina Prill
Wash your prill with 8mB of water in Ore Washing Plant, that gives you Iridium-191, Platina-190 and 2 Tiny Piles of Iron Dust
Save your Iridium-191 for later, right now we have to run Platina-190 through the Thermal Centrifuge.
When machine will heat up to 2000hU it will start processing, which gives you Iridium-193 and Tiny Pile of Copper Dust
Easiest part of a process - crafting of Complex Compound from Iridium-191, Iridium-193 and Gold Dust, recipe is shapeless
And the last step, compressing Compound into Iridium Shard, cool isn't it?
ALL CRAFTING METHODS WERE STOLEN FROM REAL LIFE
