Red Meteor Gem is an item added by the Falling Meteors Mod.
After a crash, certain hot Fallen Meteor Blocks, normally indistinguishable from normal ones, will drop a single Red Meteor Gem when mined with an Iron Pickaxe or better. This can be affected by the Fortune enchantment for up to 4 Red Meteor Gems per block at Fortune III.
Only hot Fallen Meteor will drop Red Meteor Gem. If allowed to cool, the same block will only give Meteor Chips.
When an Alien Creeper is killed, either by the Player or by other means, will drop either 0-2 Meteor Chips or 0-2 Red Meteor Gems, but never both at the same time. This can be affected by the Looting enchantment for up to 5 Red Meteor Gems per Alien Creeper at Looting III.
Block of Red Meteor Gem can be broken down into the 9 Red Meteor Gems used to create it.
Red Meteor Gems are also used to upgrade a Meteor Shield after the initial charging to cover more land with protection against naturally falling meteors.
Using a Red Meteor Gem on a Meteor Shield increases its power by 20% intervals, starting at 20%. As a result, 4 Red Meteor Gems are required to fully charge a Meteor Shield to 100%.
A Red Meteor Gem can not be used to speed up the initial charge time for a Meteor Shield.
Notes & TipsEdit
- While using NEI's Highlight Tooltip Feature, Hot Fallen Meteor that drops Red Meteor Gem, will show up as the Gem rather than as Fallen Meteor.
- This can be used to quickly pick out the Gems before the Fallen Meteor cools off, which will yield no Gems.
