Esteemed Innovation[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

As added by Esteemed Innovation

Esteemed Innovation adds the Thin Plate and Nugget variations of the Iron material. The Thin Iron Plate can be created by melting Iron Ingots in a heated Crucible, and then pouring that molten metal into a Mold with a Plate Mold. Likewise, a Mold with a Nugget Mold can be used to cast Iron Nuggets.

Flaxbeard's Steam Power[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

As added by Flaxbeard's Steam Power

Flaxbeard's Steam Power only adds the plate and nugget variations of the Iron material. The Iron Plate can be created by throwing Iron Ingots into a heated Crucible, and then pouring that molten metal into a Mold with a Plate Mold. Six nuggets are used in the creation of a Plate, which makes it unable to be used in other mod's recipes requiring their own Iron Plates.
