Mariculture Screenshots and Recipes
Mariculture adds a couple of Ores/Other generaiton to the World used for the creation of some of it’s blocks and items. These are Aluminium, Titanium, Oysters and Natural Gas. Mariculture also uses Copper but this generation is off by default as it’s asumed you will be using Mariculture with a mod that already generates Copper such as Industrial Craft. You can enable/disable generation in the config. Natural Gas is found under Ocean Biomes, Aluminium anywhere from y60 and up, and Titanium is found amongst Limestone which is found under river biomes.
Smelter and Freezer
The Industrial Smelter and Freezer are your basic processing blocks. The Smelter will melt down your ores, and other items in to molten form, doubling in the process, they can then be moved in to a Freezer to cool down to form ingots. There are various other items that can be made with the freezer. The Smelter is two blocks tall, works best when surrounded by lava or in hot biomes, while the freezer works best surrounded by ice or in cold biomes. As with most machine blocks throughout Mariculture, you can add Upgrades to improve the efficency of these machines.
