Glacial Precipitator


Glacial precipitator

Have a snowball fight!

A glacial precipitator, or precipitator for short, is a machine that freezes fluids into items.

Obtaining

A placed glacial precipitator can be instantly picked up by dismantling it with a wrench. Its configuration is preserved in the item. It can also be mined using a pickaxe, though this can be much slower.

Crafting

Upgrading

A glacial precipitator is initially at the lowest tier (basic). It can be upgraded to higher tiers using upgrade kits and conversion kits.

Usage

Placement

When placed, a glacial precipitator faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a wrench.

Processing

A glacial precipitator can be configured to freeze a certain fluid into a certain item following one of its available recipes.

When a glacial precipitator’s input tank is filled with the fluid corresponding to the configured recipe, the machine will start consuming Redstone Flux to produce the recipe’s output item. Every produced item requires a certain amount of energy and fluid. When enough energy has been consumed for an item, the input is consumed and the output is placed in the output slot.

The speed at which a glacial precipitator produces items depends on how much energy it can use per tick. This in turn depends on how much power is being supplied, and on the machine’s maximum power usage. A basic precipitator has a maximum power usage of 20 RF/t. This can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier, and by installing certain augments.

Input and output

Fluids and items can enter and exit a glacial precipitator through its sides. Every side of a precipitator may correspond to its input tank, its output slot, or both at the same time.

A glacial precipitator can automatically transfer items out of any sides that directly correspond to its output slot. This is called auto-output, and occurs whenever the machine finishes processing an item, or every 32 ticks (1.6 seconds) if the machine is inactive.

A basic glacial precipitator can automatically output up to 16 items at a time. This amount can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier.

Which sides correspond to which tanks/slots and whether auto-output is enabled can be configured using the Configuration tab in the machine’s GUI.

Redstone control

A glacial precipitator may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:

Ignored
Redstone control is disabled. The precipitator works whenever possible. This is the default mode.
Low
The precipitator works when not powered. When powered, it stops working.
High
The precipitator only works when powered.

The current mode can be set using the Redstone Control tab in the machine’s GUI.

Security

A glacial precipitator can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.

Redprints

A glacial precipitator’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other precipitators.

Tiers

Glacial precipitators come in five tiers.

Tier Max. power usage Augment slots Max. items per auto-transfer
Basic 20 RF/t 0 16
Hardened 30 RF/t 1 16
Reinforced 40 RF/t 2 28
Signalum 50 RF/t 3 44
Resonant 60 RF/t 4 64

Augmentation

A glacial precipitator can have augments installed to improve certain properties or to change how it works. The amount of augments that can be installed depends on the machine’s tier. A basic precipitator cannot be augmented.

Augments can be installed in the Augmentation tab in a precipitator’s GUI.

Augment Installable in Description
Auxiliary Reception Coil Auxiliary Reception Coil Any machine Increases a machine's maximum power usage (speed). However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
