The purpose of Rockhounding Chemistry is to assembly and maintain an industrial area in which several machines handle various types of ingredients (solid, fluid and gaseous) to produce advanced material for mid-late game stages. It also leads to several features, functional applications and experiments.

Each machine can be also integrated with custom recipes, allowing to freely reassess the working chain, or to use each machine on its own. The mod brings a set of machinery which can interact with eachother, working as parts of a unique factory. It also aims to involve the player in the production chain, planning how to efficiently prioritize the resources.

By default the mod features a tech tree running through the processes which bring a mined undefined mineral to be analyzed, acknowledged and treated to become chemical elements.
The goal is to acquire several elements and material by using a progressive manipulation, to turn the raw mineral into the final dust form.

This mod could be useful in expert or long term tech packs. To be profitably used, it is highly recommended a deep CraftTweaker integration, eventually with customized paths other than the default tech tree.

The mod contains two books, located under the @guidebook creative tab: a Guide Book with the description of every machine and a Quest Book with a step by step quest line to assembly the factory.


This mod requires a library module to work.

It also requires some additional dependencies. Thanks to their developers for the great job.


Known Issues
Due to lack of strong coding skills this mod may not perform well on servers because of lag and sync issues. It should run fine though for single players. I'm sorry about it.
