Welcome to the Fusion Reactor Tutorial, we hope this article will help the Player in building the Reactor to provide clean energy for a safer and environmentaly friendly Minecraft world.

Planning for a Fusion Reactor[edit]

Before setting up whichever Fusion Reactor your GregTech version contains, it is highly recommended that prior to creating the first block, the player first focuses on preparing for the large task ahead. Simply to make the blocks, a player needs both considerable raw materials and well-developed infrastructure of GregTech machines for refining and processing the necessary ingredients. It is also necessary that the player has an alternative power supply and the technical know-how to automate the process of making fuel for the reactor.

Automation is a critical aspect of operation of the Reactor to sustain energy output. It is recommended to use methods of automation that are rapid and directly access inventories, such as Factorization Routers or Applied Energistics Import Buses and Export Buses. It is also worth noting that a lot of the recipes involved in making the various pieces of the reactor are extremely complicated and somewhat repetitive. An ideal set-up would be to use an ME Auto Crafting set-up in conjunction with an ME Network to store and craft the resources needed to fabricate all the parts necessary for this multi-block structure.

An important decision one needs to make from the beginning is to decide what their fusion recipe is going to be. There are two energy-producing recipes which you can use. The basic recipes are the same, regardless of version, but there are some minor variations in the way the recipes work depending on the reactor version.

  1. Using a Deuterium Cell fused with a Tritium Cell.
    • Advantage: everything can be produced from a starting point of water.
    • Disadvantage: the processing times are very slow [1].
  2. Using a Deuterium Cell fused with an Helium-3 Cell.
    • Advantage: requires fewer machines and the fuel last twice as long.
    • Disadvantage: require a constant source of Endstone Dust.
