Sieve (Ex Nihilo Creatio)
- This page is about the Sieve added by Ex Nihilo Creatio. For other uses, see .
|Mod||Ex Nihilo Creatio|
The Sieve is a device added by Ex Nihilo Creatio. It allows for the obtaining of ores and other materials by sieving through basic blocks like dirt, gravel, sand, and more. Due to the configurable nature of the mod, the inputs and outputs of sieving recipes can vary between modpacks. A mesh must be placed inside the sieve before it can be used.

Usage[edit | edit source]
Holding a block of sievable material and right-clicking the Sieve with an installed mesh will place the block in the Sieve. Right-clicking, or holding right-click will process the block, making it steadily vanish and return some new items from the top. Nothing will happen if a block is attempted to be placed in the sieve if the sieve does not have a mesh.
If a recipe viewing mod like Not Enough Items or Just Enough Items is installed, it is possible to view all the materials that can be used in a sieve, their returns, and return rates by viewing the crafting usages of the sieve, mesh, or sievable material. Viewing the crafting recipe of items that can be returned from the sieving process will show the same thing.
Meshes[edit | edit source]
There are four meshes that can be installed in a sieve: String Mesh, Flint Stiffened Mesh, Iron Stiffened Mesh, and Diamond Stiffened Mesh. Each mesh may differ in the materials that can be sieved in them, the returns that will be made from each material, and the return rate for each material.
Furthermore, meshes can be improved with the following enchantments:
- Sieve Efficiency: Reduces sieving time
- Sieve Fortune: Increases drop rates
- Sieve Luck of the Sea: Occasionally drops vanilla fish
