Compressor Upgrades [DISCONTINUED] 2.2 - Glad Giraffe

Balanced, lossless pixel storage.

  1. Markelius
    This mod has now been discontinued as the Pixel Compressor compresses and refines Pixels losslessly by default now. Furthermore, I feel like making this mod restore the old recipes just to give it a reason to exist would kind of defeat the point.

    An updated, rebalanced, and improved version of the original mod by Nate McCloud. This mod adds 3 new tiered pixel compressors. The first improvement over the original game's one being a pixel loss of only 30%, the second a loss of only 15%, and the third being lossless.

    Like the game's existing Pixel Compressor, these are crafted at the Research Station, and require the original Pixel Compressor before you can begin.

    Here are the recipes:

    Pixel Compressor Mk. 2:
    (30% Pixel Loss)

    • 20 Durasteel bars
    • 20 Platinum bars
    • Pixel Compressor
    • 1000 Pixels

    Pixel Compressor Mk. 3:
    (15% Pixel Loss)

    • 6 Refined Aegisalt
    • 6 Refined Rubium
    • 6 Refined Violium
    • 20 Diamonds
    • Pixel Compressor Mk. 2
    • 2000 Pixels

    Pixel Compressor Mk. 4:
    (Lossless Compression)

    • 6 Ferozium Compound
    • 6 Cerulium Compound
    • 6 Impervium Compound
    • 80 Erichus Crystals
    • Pixel Compressor Mk. 3
    • 5000 Pixels
    Lastly, again, I'd like to thank Nate McCloud for making the original mod, and giving me permission to update and release a new version for Upbeat Giraffe!

    How does this function on servers, do all clients need this or just the server?

    So wonderful to not have to lose 40% of your pixels. But even nicer to not have to feel like a cheater. lol
