    I am running build 777 on MC1.6.2 and have been digging at various depths and cannot find silicon ore.

    silicon ore > raw silicon > used in circuit fab

    upon cheating in some silicon ore and placing it, the block name tooltip shows it as "tile.gcBlockBore.titaniumblock.name" and upon breaking it it does turn to raw silicon. I just haven't found any naturally occuring


    EDIT: based on the block name showing as titanium I restarted my internet search using that, one galacticraft related search showed that the block known as titanium only showed below level 20 and is more rare than diamonds.
    I am going to focus in that region.

    why would one of the earth's most abundant minerals (silicon) be so damn rare in this mod?

    sooo... found my first piece of natural "silicon ore". much easier now that i know where to look.

    is it intended for it to be generated at such a low occurrence?

    I would have assumed you do something with sand to get silicon. Thanks for the update.

    That's for MicDoodle to decide. Commonality on earth doesn't dictate what makes a good minecraft recipe.

    I would only be speculating, but I imagine it is to make higher tech equipment a bit more challenging to craft, which I am quite ok with.

    As far as i know silicon is almost as rare as diamonds, in 5 days i got 6 of them...
    Also, i think the outcome form the advanced wafer should be 2 instead of 1
    In 5 days i got: 4 diamonds/6 silicon, there's my theory based form.

    B.T.W. i think i ate mr. potato last night :eek:
