There are several steps in this process: You cannot perform research without research points, and the best way to gain research points is by exploration and examining objects in the world. The first thing you will need to do is construct a Thaumometer. By pointing the Thaumometer at objects or creatures and holding the right mouse button you will start examining them.
Edit The Thaumonomicon entry about Research is pretty much self-explanatory, and details the process well enough: There are several steps in this process: The first thing you will need to do is construct a Thaumometer see next page. By holding the Thaumometerlooking at objects or creatures and holding the right mouse button you will start examining them.
The process does not take long but your movement speed is reduced while it is occurring. It is also important to note that the item forms of objects can be scanned as well, such as swords or blocks.
Dropping them using q or your drop key on the ground and scanning them with the Thaumometer will identify them. Researching Aspects with the Thaumometer After examination completes, the Thaumometer will display what aspects the object contains If you can understand the aspects within the object. In the bottom right of the screen you will also see a summary of the aspects and research points you discovered.
You will initially not be able to examine all objects since you have not discovered their component aspects.
For example, a object containing the Lux aspect can only be examined if you have previously discovered the Lux aspect, or know the two aspects that combine to create it. The very first time you discover an aspect by examining something you gain double the number of research points you would have normally.
Objects and creatures can usually only be examined once, with the exclusion of the baby forms of animals being countable as a second scan. While exploring the world and examining things, it is always a good idea to keep a filled set of scribing tools and some paper on you.
Occasionally examining something will reveal additional clues and insights into thaumoturgical research, often resulting in a set of research notes that you can research further. To craft a research table simply place two tables next to each other and click on them with a set of Scribing Tools.
The recipe for tables is listed under the Artifice research category.
If you already created a Research Note using paper and Scribing Tools from your Thaumonomicon, it goes in slot 2. You should see all the primal aspects and possibly some compound aspects listed in the area marked 3 with varying amounts attached to them, such as in the image to the right.
When you enter a world for the first time, every player is assigned a small pool of primal aspects to get them started.
If you had done some exploring with the Thaumometer beforehand then you might have a significant number of primal and compound aspects listed here. You can now start combining aspects into more complex compound aspects but simply clicking on those you wish to combine, the selected aspects will appear in the 4 slots and when you have two selected pressing the button between them will attempt to combine them.
If successful, you should see what was gained in the bottom right and it should appear in slot 3. The component aspects are consumed even if the combination did not result in a valid compound aspect.
An example of a research "jigsaw" is shown in 5 for the image above. To complete Research, you must link together all of the base Aspects by using an Aspect each root Aspect builds into, or one that it is built from.
For example, if a root Aspect of the Research is Saxum, you must link to an adjacent hex using an Aspect it builds into Terraor one that it is built from Metallum. If you are undergoing Research you do not fully understand, you may see that one or more of the root Aspects is replaced by a "?
If this happens, then you have not discovered a root Aspect of that Research, and the Research cannot be completed at the present time. If you have paper in slot 2, then you may have noticed that when only a single aspect is selected that the green button marked 6 lights up.
If you press it then you will attempt to research the selected aspect. If successful you discover something of interest about that aspect and a set of research notes will appear in slot 7. Section 8 will also display the research sheet covered in a bewildering array of runes and symbols that looks something like the image at the top of the previous page.
Don't worry, it is not as hard as it looks. Research nodes To complete your research you simply need to connect and activate all the knowledge nodes pictured below.
The node on the left is an inactive node, while the node on the right has been activated. Once all the inactive nodes have become active, the research will be complete and the research note will change into a discovery that you can use to gain the completed research just right click while holding it.
Runes You connect the knowledge nodes by activating the runes.When you write a research paper you build upon what you know about the subject and make a deliberate attempt to find out what experts know.
A research paper involves surveying a field of knowledge in order to find the best possible information in that field.
What follows is a hypothetical example of a research paper based on an experiment. I've always like Thaumcraft's method of researching various spells and recipes however I wanted to take it a couple of steps further and apply that concept to EVERYTHING and this is the result. Now instead of players magically knowing how to craft everything within Minecraft straight away, your character needs to practice and study the recipes in order not to mess them up.
