Mekanism Mod – Add several new items that revolve around obsidian and industrialization, the two things Minecraft needs the most!
Minecraft pretty much added obsidian to do nothing, other than to make the game slightly adding an inconvenience. In addition, Minecraft has also been lacking an industrial atmosphere. You could install two separate mods to achieve both of these, but in the end, they will be incompatible with each other, and where’s the fun in that?
That’s why theMekanism Mod was made. TheMekanism Mod is a mod that gives you the best of both world by incorporating an industrial mod and an obsidian mod into one. What’s even cooler is that both of the two sections are compatible with each other, meaning that you should see cross-crafting recipes, as well as crafting recipes of their own.
With this mod, you can create several obsidian items. All you need to do is smelt mined obsidian, and after that, you should have an obsidian ingot. All you need to do after that is treat it like any other ingot in vanilla Minecraft, meaning that you can make obsidian tools, weapons, and armor, just like you would with an iron ingot. This is useful, mainly because obsidian is easier to find, and will definitely spare your diamond pickaxe for future use.
In conclusion, this mod is massive. Even though we just covered the obsidian part of this mod, this mod also has several Industrialcraft-esque elements incorporated into it. Don’t get the industrial element of the mod confused, however! It’s completely brand new, and completely different from Industrialcraft in its own ways. Anyways, if you are looking for a mod that revolves around obsidian and industrialization, then this mod is for you.
Here's a video of the Mekanism Mod in action.
