Best way to make silicon cells


Best Answer ZL123 , 16 June 2013 - 06:56 AM

The best way before you get Solar Panels, imo, is Redstone in an Industrial Centrifuge.

10 Redstone + 4 Cells = 1 Silicon Cell + 2 Ruby Dust + (?) Pyrite Dust + (?) Mercury Cells
I think the information on the wiki might be slightly outdated.

Sand in an Industrial Electrolyzer is also good. Go to the full post »

Been flipping though the wiki and trying to figure out the best way to make silicon cells. Want to make a bunch of solar panels under Gregtech (Ultimate Pack ) and so far I've just been burning though a bunch of lapis with little results. Interestingly enough NEI shows liquid silicon in a Liquid Transposer but I think that's a bug as I put a lot of silicon things into the Magma Crucible with no luck getting any of it to work to make silicon liquid. >.<

Slightly? It says to put lapis dust into a centrifuge, which doesn't work, it apparently is an electrolyzer recipe now. >.< I'll give redstone a whirl, got plenty of that, that or start macerating my vast supply of cobble into sand, which might be another good option. Cool! Thanks! :D  Any other problems I'm having I'll separate out into their own messages. :D

I use sodalite dust which is found in the end in an industrial electrolyzer because you get 4 sodium cells, 3 aluminium dust, 3 silicon cells and a chlorite cell which is useless for 23 dust which can be obtained from about 5 ore blocks.
