Essentia Condenser is a block added by the Gadomancy mod. This machine can store Essentia of all Aspects with up to 200 of each Aspect. First point of Essentia of each Aspect has to be inserted in the machine by Golems, and then the machine will start pulling inside all Essentia from nearby containers in the range of 5 blocks. In order for the Essentia to be pulled from an external container, the Essentia Condenser needs to have equal or higher amount fo Essentia of this Aspect.

The Essentia cannot be extracted or inserted manually, only Golems can extract it. Also the Essentia stored in this machine will be extracted by Runic Matrix during the process of Infusion.

Element of Darkness can be placed on an Ancient Pedestal near the machine in order for the machine to consume it and increase its internal capacity for the Essentia of each Aspect. Several Elements of Darkness can be consumed, increasing the maximum capacity for up to 3000 Essentia of each Aspect.

In order to activate the structure, place 3 Essentia Condenser blocks on top of each other, then right-click the column with any wand with at least 150 Vis of each type, then the structure will begin to function.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"While experimenting with void materials, you discovered an odd reaction between void seeds and liquid essentia. When a void seed is left in close proximity with a warded jar for an extended period of time, the energy it releases has the odd tendency to make the essentia in the jar condense into a slightly more dense state, freeing up a small amount of space in the jar without actually destroying any essentia. After some further testing, you found that the seed alone was not powerful enough to make any major difference, but with enhancements to increase the potency of the energy released by the seed, a device that can compress essentia into a super dense state could be made.

By condensing large amounts of void materials, infusing the resulting mass into void seed to create a small cross dimensional rift, and freezing the resulting anomaly inside a crystal shell, it is possible to increase the potency the void energy the seed can release by several thousand times. Despite the fact that this new “Element of Darkness” seems to be incredibly stable, its effects are far to potent for a normal warded jar to handle. It also has the unfortunate side effect of sucking all of the light out of any space it is dropped in, blinding anything that holds it or stands near it when it is dropped on the ground.

By assembling a reinforced shell around the Element of Darkness and stabilizing essentia flow with an aqua aura core, a device that is capable of storing massive amounts of essentia can be created. In order to assemble the machine, place all three blocks on top of each other, and right click with a wand. The Essentia Condenser can store all types of essentia inside one construct, with a base capacity of 200 essentia that can be stored. The device does have some mechanical limitations though.

Due to the incredible amount of energy in the core of the Essentia Condenser, it cannot safely interact with pipes, nor can essentia be directly placed into the device by hand. Golems have to be used to insert the first bit of essentia into the condenser for it to start accepting on its own. Once essentia is stored however, the Condenser will actively pull in essentia from every available jar, reservoir, and mirror within 5 blocks of he device, however it only seems to pull from containers that have less essentia inside them than the main condenser. Although direct physical interaction with the Essentia Condenser is limited to golems, infusion altars as well any device that can pull from an essentia mirror can supply themselves.

The Essentia Condenser, like most things that contain large amounts of liquid essentia, does not deal with large amounts of physical stress very well. If any of the blocks in the structure are broken while any essentia is contained inside, the entire device will violently explode, leaving a large amount of flux and taint behind. Unlike its slightly more tame counterpart, the essentia reservoir, if the Essentia Condenser has any essentia within, it will release enough destabilized flux to immediately taint the land.

If an element of darkness is placed on an ancient pedestal near the condenser, the core of the condenser will consume it, allowing the condenser to increase its internal capacity by a reasonable amount. The highest point the capacity of the condenser can be pushed to with this method is 3000 per aspect.

You noticed while standing near the structure, that the pull of the Element of Darkness in the Condensers core is enough to gradually pull you closer. Could it be getting bigger? You don’t think so...hopefully..."
