Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Before, you got nether quartz with smelting 2 sand, and you used the nether quartz in the cutter to get the silicon.
- This replaced the use of nether quartz in the recipes because MCE thought it was a way too easy way to get nether quartz. So he added this in, which can't be used in nether quartz recipes.
