Zimphnode (zimf-node) is an ore that is found underground. The texture was a random green with an effect from photoshop put on it. MCE liked it and kept it. The block, despite it looking like a mineral block, generates like this as an ore, and gives off light.

This ore requires a stone pick or better to mine. When mined, it drops the ore which you shove into a furnace to get the zimphnode bar, which is fuel for the ZNG. There is somewhat a meme from this saying; "No one really knows what this is". There is an achievement and even a shirt with that on it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Was added for no reason at first, just a random name MCE came up with.
  • A somewhat of a meme came from it of; "No one really know what this is". It's on an achievement and even a shirt.
  • Later it was made as a fuel for the ZNG, which is a generator that makes power that other tech block (Like matter condenser, tank compressor, biofuel extractor, etc.) will need to run off of.
  • The green texture seems to fit it.
  • CrazyGuy had the idea of making it into armor before it was decided it would be used as a fuel.
