However, the basic systems and buildings currently present will not change, and the mechanics are in place.

Hexi's Inline Ore Processing

Based on the Minecraft Mekanism mod, this mod is intended to be an easy-to-use no-fluff addition to mining that lets you squeeze as much as possible out of ore fields.

Much like the MC mod, you can add each tier when you want with re-used machinery, and assuming you left space you won't need to move a thing.

Each tier grants progressively more from your ore, but later tiers have more complex requirements to compensate.

All of the added machines do not accept productivity modules, as that would rapidly spiral out of control (the intended 3x limit becomes almost 14x).

Processing Steps

Tier 1: Basic Enrichment

  • Ore is fed into an enrichment building, converting 5 ore into 6 refined ore

This results in 120% yield.

Tier 2: Two-Step Enrichment

  • Ore is fed into a crusher, converting 5 ore into 6 crushed ore
  • Crushed ore is fed into an enrichment building, converting 3 crushed ore into 4 refined ore

This results in 160% yield.

Tier 3: Filtered Enrichment

  • Ore is fed into a crusher
  • Crushed ore is fed into a cleaning facility, converting 3 crushed ore (and some water) into 3 clean ore
  • Clean ore is fed into an enrichment building, converting 3 clean ore into 5 refined ore

This results in 200% yield.

Tier 4: Liquidative Enrichment

  • Ore is fed into a crusher
  • Crushed ore is fed into a cleaning facility
  • Clean ore is fed into a liquidator, converting 3 clean ore (and some acid) into 50 ore slurry
  • Ore slurry is fed into a crystallizer, converting 10 ore slurry into 1 ore crystal
  • Ore crystals are fed into an enrichment building, converting 4 ore crystals into 5 refined ore

This results in 250% yield.

Tier 3a/4a: Advanced Cleaning

An advanced version of the cleaning machine offers a 20% boost in output at the cost of a slower recipe, more power consumption, more pollution, and stone/coal as byproducts. This can be used with T3 (240% final yield) or T4 (300% final yield) processing.
