European Copyright continues to threaten all of us, and it stays just as terrible as it originally was!
So if Article 11 and 13 are not somehow stopped last minute, then there will be huge Issues for every Artist on the Internet, including me. I hoped they would make this Law at least a bit less problematic, but those hopes went out the Window by now. I guess I need to find a way to make my Forums "Educational" now or something, since that is one of the few exceptions, unless there is going to be one for small Sites, which I doubt would happen…​ Oh by the way, Youtube is trying to pretend to fix it with making Content ID mandatory, but that wont fix the Law whatsoever! And even the Music and Media Industry doesnt want to have anything to do with Article 13!
GregTech for Minecraft 1.2.5

This is the old Lightning Rod Addon for IC², the first thing I have ever created in regards of Minecraft Mods, and the beginning of GregTech itself. It does 8 388 608 EU at a rate of 8192 EU/t once struck by Lightning, you will need 4 HV Transformers around it in order to grab all Energy it emits. Lightning Strikes happen on a random chance depending how many IC² Iron Fences you place ontop of the Main Block and on how tall the overall Rod is (Bedrock to Height Limit is most efficient). The generated Power is not subject to actual Lightning strikes, you cant just cause a Lightning Strike with a special Arrow or something, that won’t work.

The Crafting Recipe
This Version works ONLY in Singleplayer, this was a time where I had no Idea how to do Networking in MC, but its the only Version where this is the case. ;)
Older Versions of other Mods has quite a few older Versions of known Mods, that might fit well together.
