It is also the basis for Tier 2 Heavy-Duty Plate used in more advanced rocketry items.
For any meaningful Space Program, you are going to need to have the facilities to produce large quantities of this. One or more Electric Compressors are recommended to speed up the process... And an Electric Arc Furnace when you can get one, to increase your ingot production from ores.
The component Compressed Steel, Compressed Aluminum and Compressed Bronze plates for the input require a high amount of resources. If you don't have a tech mod capable of ore doubling - for example, Mekanism or EnderIO or Thermal Expansion - then it's recommended you set Galacticraft to use Quick Mode.
Galacticraft 2 and Galacticraft 3
Use a Compressor: Heavy-Duty Plating Tier 1
- From Galacticraft 22.214.171.1240, this recipe produces 2 Tier 1 Heavy Duty Plate per 6 items of input, as shown.
- From Galacticraft 3.0.9, this recipe produced 2 Tier 1 Heavy Duty Plate when Quick Mode was enabled, but otherwise it produced only 1 output per 6 items of input.
- In GC2, and GC3 versions prior to Galacticraft 3.0.9, this recipe produced only 1 output per 6 items of input.
