This is just a quick post really about a small project I undertook a month or two ago.
The project was a very small utility minecraft mod. The idea stemmed from playing on a server with friends, I had started to notice that every time I went mining my inventory would be full of ores, which is pretty normal, but upon closer inspection I noticed that I had things like, 4 different kinds of copper and in some cases, 8 different kinds of tin. Now I know that some mods (Minefactory Reloaded I think?) have added in specific machines that facilitate the conversion of all these ores to one type, and the putting them through something like a macerator or pulveriser would convert them to the same thing (It wouldn’t, it’d convert them to the mods version, dependent on the machine), or you could just setup some ender bag + chest + automated system to convert them. The problem was, that once I got back to my home/base I had plenty of space for the ores, and they weren’t an issue, the annoying thing was having to frequently travel back because my inventory is full.
