Electric Advantage is an add-on mod to Power Advantage that adds electricity to your Minecraft experience.
Electric machines and generators all require a Power Supply Unit (PSU) in their crafting recipe, thus making one is the entry barrier for Electric Advantage. Crafting a PSU is a three step process: microchip -> control circuit -> power supply unit
To make a microchip, you will need some nuggets of copper, tin, or gold and several silicon ingots (you recipe mode may also add plastic and redstone to the recipe).
First, mine some coal or smelt some charcoal. Throw it on the ground and smash it with your crack hammer to make carbon dust. Then mix the carbon dust with some sand to make silicon blend. Smelt the silicon blend to make silicon ingots.
Once you have the silicon ingots, lay them out with some copper/tin/gold nuggets to make your microchips.
After you’ve made a stock of microchips, you can start making control circuits.
First, you need a blank circuit board. For this, you’ll need some plastic (you can make bioplastic by smashing potatoes into starch and smelting the starch) and a copper plate (craft from 3 copper ingots). Crafting the plastic ingot and copperplate together will make a blank circuit board.
Next we need some solder. In the NORMAL recipe mode, you can use tin, lead, or silver ingots as solder, but TECH_PROGRESSION and APOCALYPTIC recipe modes will require that you make solder by combining 2 parts powdered tin to 1 part powdered lead/silver to make solder blend, and then smelt the solder blend into solder.
Finally, combine a blank circuit board, a microchip, and solder to make a control circuit.
Power Supply Unit
To make that all important power supply, you will need wires, steel, and a control circuit.
Firstly, you will be needing a lot of electric wires, so you might as well make a bunch of them now. Combine 6 plastic ingots with 3 copper ingots (in 3 rows of 3) to make a stack of electric power cables (aka wires).
Finally, put your control circuit, wires, and a steel plate/ingot (depending on recipe mode) on the crafting grid to make a power supply unit (PSU).
Batteries (when placed in a Battery Array) allow you to store electricity. In order of worst to best, the battery types are: lead-acid (yellow), nickel-metal hydride (blue), alkaline (brown), and lithium (white). Lithium is rare ore that you will have to dig up from deep beneath the earth.
If you already have been using Steam Advantage, then this will be your best electric generator.
Rock Crusher, Arc Furnace, and Automated Assembler
In the above image, a Rock Crusher is pulverizing iron ore into dust, which is then fed into the Arc Furnace to be smelted into iron ingots. The iron ingots are then fed into the Automated Assembler, which is crafting the ingots into iron blocks, which are then deposited intot he chest.
Like the Steam Drill, except with a frickin’ LASER!
