This mod is the rewrite and continuation of MagicBooks which can be found here.

 Crafting ritual:

The layout for the crafting ritual is as follows:


Crafting Ritual Layout


The air pedestal faces East and the gap between all the crystals and pedestals is 2 blocks.

All crafting ritual recipes are present in JEI. The format is that the top slot is the air pedestal and the other slots are in their relative positions according to the ritual in the world. The number above each slot is the mana for each element required in the respective crystal for the ritual to be successful.

Note that the position of the greater crystals is not important. It is only important that the normal crystals and pedestals are placed correctly.
