The Terraformer is a machine introduced in Galacticraft 2 which allows the transformation of a landscape from being infertile to being cultivable. It will create a large green bubble and slowly transform the superficial blocks, not the deeper ones, of the moon or planet into grass blocks. It does not provide oxygen though (for this purpose, use an Oxygen Bubble Distributor for open-air areas or Oxygen Sealer for airtight spaces).
It also has the ability to plant trees and make small water pounds when supplied with the proper materials. Grass blocks require seeds, trees require Oak tree saplings, and both grass and trees require bone meal in order for them to be placed. Water can be placed by filling the water storage inside the machine.
Currently, the Terraformer only converts Moon Turf and Mars Surface Rock within a 14m radius sphere.
To terraform the entire area within the bubble, the machine will require at least (may vary):
- 2 water buckets;
- 3 stacks of seeds;
- 3 stacks of bone meal;
- 10-12 MJ of energy.
The terraformer is done when it shows "No Valid Blocks in Bubble". For trees, the terraformer accepts any kind of tree sapling, but it will plant only small Oak trees.
This video (from 3:13 to 3:50) depicts the use of the Terraformer on Mars.
