Because the digital age could use some magic.

The goal of the mod is to serve as a bridge between Thaumcraft and Applied Energistics. The primary focus is essentia management, both in storage, transportation, and application.

Thanks. I was actually hoping to be done by now, but I had computer issues and then I was ill (still not feeling overly amazing). Hopefully it'll be done soon X.x

Hit a little snaggily bit (just like when I was doing AE2 and ExtraCells and had to request those mod authors to add more textures) with the back and edges of bus/terminals due to the same bits of the textures being used for blocks which have different viewable areas (i.e. thick edged Essentia Terminal vs thin edge Essentia Storage Bus).

Requested Nvidiaca tweaks the supplied textures so things look good still ^.^;;

Howdy HanFox,
I was testing out the textures and I noticed a bit of a hickup. When an Essentia Cell is in a ME Chest the top textures get a bit wonky. The native AE code doesn't draw them in the same order, dark-medium-light, as the terminal draws them, so the runes get hidden. But more importantly it leaves transparent areas around the border.
I wanted to ask if this was something we could just overlook, or if you would like me to include specific textures for the ME Chest.

Well, the chest textures aren't the same shape in my patch as terminal textures (obviously). To accommodate how you're trying to draw the Chest I'd actually need to change the AE patch for it. It'd be difficult to just overlook the issue, because it does look pretty bad.

I'd appreciate it if you could include specific ME Chest textures. ^.^;;

I just looked at ExtraCells and it does the same thing as TE does for the Chest. I guess it'd be easier to change the AE2 patch as I imagine if anyone else adds more Storage cells down the line they'll likely do the same thing. Easier for me to change one patch than to chase modders -_-!

As for the symbols I guess I may just have to forgo them as so they're still legible at 64x and 32x I actually left them 128x.

I remember facing the same issue with the runes, and I just remembered how I delt with it. You need to cut out the overlapping area's from the dark texture for the medium texture. Just like you already have with cutting out the light textures overlapping area.
In effect, since all three textures get drawn on the same 'Z-plane', but in no set order, none of the textures should have a fully opaque pixel at the same coordinates, else something will get clobbered.
I was also thinking about the fully transparent areas, and I realized that you would only need a separate texture for the dark texture. If you are going to update the AE patch to correct the issue I will leave it be, but if not, or if you would prefer, I will include a special dark-chest texture.

I already updated the AE2 patch. So don't worry about it :)

It's a shame Algo just didn't set the layers as dark>medium>light>edge originally. I think I brought it up with him early in AE2's dev and he just didn't want to for whatever reason.

I'll cut the bits out. Just a shame it all has to be so fiddly, but once it's done it's done!

EDIT: All done :)
