UU-Matter is created in a Mass Fabricator. The more power provided to the Mass Fabricator, the quicker it will produce UU-Matter. Inserting Scrap in the bottom slot of the Mass Fabricator will speed up the process of creating UU-Matter by up to 6 times, as well as decrease the EU cost to 166,666. It takes 1,000,000 EU to generate one UU-Matter without Scrap.
UU-Matter can be used to craft many different vanilla blocks and items, plus many modded/unobtainable blocks and ores, including Iridium Ore, which can be only obtained by crafting it from UU-Matter.
Aside from Iridium Ore, the uses of UU-matter are undermined when used along side of the Equivalent Exchange mod since most blocks made by UU-matter are more easily made in Equivalent Exchange. However, this should in no way discourage players from using UU-matter.
When used with Equivalent Exchange, Glowstone blocks are the most EMC efficient item to craft, granting 2048 EMC per UU-matter. It is possible to create floating Lava lamps and Water decorations since Lava and Water are produced as source blocks and won't flow when placed. However, avoid updating the blocks as they will start flowing.
Recipes (Alphabetical Order)
(Note:If you are making a recipe like grass or sand, it does matter whether or not you use a crafting table. The Crafting Table is needed to make all UU-Matter recipies.)
Chiseled Stone Brick Worth 48 EMC, 9.6 per UU-Matter
Sandstone Worth 64 EMC, 32 per UU-Matter
Snow Worth 4 EMC, 2 per UU-Matter
Bone Worth 4608 EMC, 1152 per UU-Matter (If macerated: 7680 EMC, 1920 per UU-Matter)
Cocoa Beans Worth 4096 EMC, 819.2 per UU-Matter
Vines Worth 24 EMC, 8 per UU-Matter
Tips and Tricks
- If you want Diamonds, it is better to use 5 UU-Matter to create Gold Ore. Then macerate them into Gold Dust then smelt them to make 4 Gold Ingots Then use the Philosopher's Stone to make them into a Diamond. Its cheaper than the Glowstone/Condenser trick by 1 UU- Matter.
- Instead of crafting Iron Ore blocks, you can craft tin. After Macerating and smelting the Tin, craft Buckets and then use an Alloy Furnace to convert the Tin back to Iron. This method will yield more Iron than crafting Iron Ore, but is a bit more time consuming. For instance, if you had 150 UU-Matter to spend, you could get 120 Iron Ingots directly (4*150/5, assuming you macerated the ore). You could also get 480 Iron Ingots, even considering the UU-Matter cost of the coal, also assuming that you macerate the tin ore.
- An alternative to the above is to smelt the ores (or macerate, then smelt) then use a Transmutation Tablet or a condenser to turn the tin into iron since they are both worth 256 EMC. This is much faster.
- If you only have a small supply of UU-Matter, use it to create items that are difficult or impossible to obtain normally such as Grass blocks, Mycelium blocks, Lava and Water. Lava and Water differ from buckets because Lava and Water will not 'spread' and will float in midair unless updated (by placing a block next to it). These also stack up to 64. Another advantage to water source blocks is that you can place them in the nether.
