This mod adds a brand new ore to the game, Morphite!
Have you ever felt like the game was lacking resources, but you didn't want crank up the map gen settings to get them? Have you ever ran out of a resource, and you wanted a secondary way to work for it while not adding too much complexity?
Morphite is a supplemental ore that can be processed into the other raw resources. It is generally useless on its own, and needs a processing step to be made into something useful. A wild card ore.
Notes of interest:
When ores are placed on the map, Morphite is over written with other ores.
Another way to play vanilla with Morphite is to lower/disable the regular raw resources on the map (besides water). It is still possible to launch a rocket, and adds a new challenge!
This mod has only been tested to work with Vanilla Factorio. There may be issues when using other mods.
If you are a modder and would like to override the recipe generator, see Compatibility.md for instructions.
State of the mod:
This mod has the basic feature set I wanted to implement. I am now in the phase of maintaining and adding compatibility to other mods as they are requested.
Possible future additions:
Further improvements to fields that can be passed to recipe generator for compatibility.
