Blue science hit you like a brick wall? Do you want a way to mine special ores that can be processed directly into science? Look no further!


This configurable mod adds ores into the game that can be directly processed into science packs. One new ore for each science. One can configure which ores are enabled, their recipe costs to create a science pack, and use autoplace controls to fine tune ore placement on the map. Science pack crafting time is the same as vanilla crafting times (except for space science).


Intended for use with Leighzer's Science Bottling for added difficulty.
Bob's Tech.
If demand is high enough I would be open to supporting other modded sciences.

Prioritized Possible Additions:

Compatibility with space exploration mod.
Framework to programmatically add new science ores for sciences other mods introduce.
Add nice name bool setting so players can have ore named nicely like Automatium rather than Automation science ore.
Tiered ore placement. (Higher tech sciences are placed further and further from spawn)
Ore chaos compatibility (When it hits 0.17)
