|Supported Minecraft versions||1.7.10-1.12.2|
LightningCraft is a mod by SBlectric and maintained by Rumaruka that focuses on a mix of lightning power generation, a dimension called the Underworld which is very similar to the Nether with new structures, mobs and ores, multiple tool and armour sets and utility blocks.
The mod has many tiers of alloys that can be made from common Minecraft resources in the Lightning Infusion Table or resources added by mobs, such as defeating Demon Soldiers to collect their blood or Ichor in the Underworld dimension in one of the many structures. These alloys are used in the making of many of the tools, armour, machine tier upgrades and Underworld portal frame blocks as the progression steps of the mod.
LightningCraft has different mod support depending on version. In 1.7.10 versions of the mod, Thaumcraft 4 (and 5 in 1.8.9), aspect support is available. In 1.12.2 versions of the mod, Tinkers' Construct fluid support is available for Electricium, Skyfather and Mystic alloys. The latest version has Patchouli guide support in version 2.9.7.
Power API Support
LightningCraft has it's own Power API called LE (changed to not be confused with LP from Blood Magic in 1.7.10, versions 1.8.9 and newer will have LE present). This can be generated from using an Iron or Gold Golf Club and swinging it over an Air Terminal to generate power or the Electrostatic Generator which uses consumable blocks and existing power.
LE can be converted between other power APIs, the power APIs supported are Redstone Flux and Tesla, these can be converted using convertor blocks for LE to RF, or RF to LE (when Tesla API is installed it will acknowledge the power as Tesla). This conversion works by using the RF Lightning Generator to convert to LE to RF, and the LE Export Bus to convert RF to LE.
During the 1.7.10 versions of the mod it was possible for the player to access sky dimension called Arcandia (or at least the blocks that would appear in the dimension), but this was removed in 1.8.9-2.0.0 in favour of the Underworld dimension instead to focus on 1 instead of 2 dimensions.
Another notable aspect of the mod that was removed was the 2 books that would follow up on the Arcadian and Underworld block information and recipes. As the current block information and recipes are included in the single guide book it is clear that the multiple book idea was scrapped.
