This is my first mod tutorial for AE2, I will go through all the basic steps to get you going with the resources. There was no space in this video to also cover ME Networks though.

I should make one thing clear, as I get comments about it. Pure Crystals can't be turned into dust again. You get 2 seeds (from 1 dust) from one normal crystal and can grow those into 2 Pure crystals. This means you have doubled the amount of crystals, but can't process them further.

I have done several videos about AE2, so if there are items or blocks not covered in this one they can probably be found in another video. All my AE2 tutorials can be found in this playlist:

I will go through these different steps, items or topcis:
-Ores: Certus Quartz, Charged Certus Quartz and Nether Quartz
-Quartz Grindstone (and Wooden Crank)
-Fluix Crystal
-Grind Crystal to get Dust, combine with Sand to get two seeds
-Seeds will grow to Pure Crystals if you put them in water
-Crystal Growth Accelerator
-Quartz Glass
-Quartz Fiber
-ME Glass Cable
-Fluix Block
-Applied Energistics Power
-Vibration Chamber
-Energy Acceptor
-Quartz Wrench
-Energy Cell

In the final example I used 4 Vibration Chamber; a total of 40 ae/t. The Energy Cell is not required, but can be used to store energy between operations. 5 Accelerators require 40 ae/t, so they match quite well.


If you like what you see, please make me aware of it in form of a like or a comment. If not, then tell me what you think I should improve. And of course, subscribe if you want to see more.

I can be found on both Twitter and Facebook as well, for video announcements and updates. They are also the preferred ways to send a non-video related question or comment. Sometimes I do things on Twitch as well, place a sub and be prepared!
