When playing Karma, expect a lot of surprises. There are many things out to kill you, so if you are not one who can tolerate deaths, it’s going to be tough!
Some primary goals are:
Establish a Hideout
Establishing a hideout is as simple as digging into a wall, and making chests and a crafting bench.
Make a Quartz Grindstone
A quartz grindstone is introduced by Applied Energistics 2 and allows you to turn 1 ore to 2 via grinding them into dusts and cooking them in a furnace. Later, other mod packs will do this better, but it’s very cheap and easy to make when starting off.
