This is a guide to get started in Feed the Beast Infinity Evolved Expert mode. Remember: NEI Is your biggest friend in this pack. Many recipes have changed not just via the crafting table but the way you might process somethings. Make sure you always refer to NEI and check their sub crafting etc as they might have changed as well. Food: Carrots or Wheat / Bread is your best friend. Most food recipes in how to cook them have changed a ton. In the near future 500 out from spawn there will be small farms to allow you to pick carrots and other vanilla foods/plants. (Right click to harvest) Tools: Wood has 5 uses and stone is your last Vanilla tool you will use for mining at 63 uses. You will go Tinkers's Construct as soon as possible and pretty much stick with Tinker's tools for a very long time. An early game hoe is the Tinker' Mattock. Protection: You want to make sure you protect your things by opening your inventory and at the top left clicking the map icon and clicking the squares to mark off chunks you want protected. Protected Chunks work well but they will not stop people from using pressure plates. So we advice something other then pressure plates. It's recommended you have tall a couple blocks before your protected chunks end to prevent people from entering your property easy and also from pillering up beside and jumping over. It's recommended you don't add just anyone to your friends list as by default they can enter your house and break / take things. You can change this via the Key Icon on the chunk protection map screen at the right. Getting Started in Tech, Magic and General: It's highly recommended that you open your inventory and click on the first book under the 3 little colored dudes icon and follow their instructions. Wood Ash is no longer usable to make treated wood so don't waste your time dealing with it. The best way is to setup a Coke Oven and use glass bottles.
