A mod that adds new fuels. I originally created this mod to be able to reclaim my iron-shavings from the MetalRecovery mod. Now includes fire logs and peat processing.

High-Grade Fuel:

Burns fairly long at extreme temperatures, useful for melting all metals, but poured metals take a very long time to cool. (Outputs two items and anthracite can be used instead coke)

image

Fire Log:

Burns at very low temperatures but each log lasts 40 minutes! For use in a fireplace to keep you warm during winter but not much else. (Outputs 8 items), stacks to 128.

Peat processing:

The vanilla peat is now a little worse at smelting things- 15 sec burn time at 400c, this is because the peat should be dried in a chest for 36 in game hours.

image

Dried peat- will burn for 25 sec at 850c, it can also be improved when you add certain materials to it.

image

Bio-Char- A charcoal dust with all sorts of organic compounds inside. Obtained by smelting most plants in the fire pit eg: cattails, ferns, flowers, etc.

image

Refined peat- mix bio-char with peat in the crafting grid for 2 bricks of refined peat, this stuff burns for 96 seconds but only at 750c, great for cooking food.

image

Propolis- A resin-like substance that is obtained when breaking any type of hive or skep, this stuff never goes off and can be eaten but its main use is in the next fuel.

image

Bituminous peat- Combine dried, refined peat with some resin or propolis for 4 bricks of bituminous peat, this peat burns for 40 seconds at 1100c so its a alternate to charcoal. Cant be used in bloomeries however.

2.0.3:

  • To prevent a crash with peat in firepits you now need to craft vanilla peat in the grid to get a dryable version

Hi, I am getting consistent crashes with just this mod activated. The crash can be found here (this version does include multiple mods, but I tested it out with just super fuel active too and got the same crash). https://pastebin.com/EZ8juWXh The crash seems to be caused by peat drying while its on a pit-kiln. So for example if you start a pit kiln with peat that is at 0% cured it won't crash. But one that is at like 75% will cause a crash. (I tested it by just setting time speed to 9999). Let me know if I can provide any additional information. And if that is too hard of a problem to fix, might I suggest a new recipe that has one peat turn into the curable peat so its player's choice instead of automatic.

2.0.2 changes:

  • Added new peat processing chain, now peat can be dried once mined then improved with further processing
  • New peats either burn longer at lower temps or burn hotter for a shorter duration, bituminous peat is a low-end charcoal substitute. Refined peat is meant for long duration low temp cooking eg: cooking.
  • Fire logs recipe now only output 8 instead of 16, but burn time was doubled to 40 real minutes. For recipe consistency.
  • Added descriptions to items.

Fixed crashing issue, should work fine in 1.15 now with current release.

A fantasy item called "Doped coal", unfortunately, kills the delicate balance of smelting metals. Thank goodness most crucibles melt at these temperatures, that is, you completely lose them. Yeah, this item is op, kills bloomeries, but also kills crucibles (they just melt at these temperatures)
