Mekanism is an independent tech mod that brings low, mid, and high tier machinery to Minecraft. The mod doesn't have an actual goal, and you'll understand this when you see all the random content Mekanism contains, from jetpacks to balloons. However, I can assure you that you'll notice all the content blend together as you get to know the mod better!
Mekanism uses a tier-based system when organizing several of its core features, including Energy Cubes and Factories. There are four tiers: basic, the simplest tier, advanced, the second-most basic tier, elite, the second-most complex tier, and ultimate, the most complex tier. You can upgrade tiers by placing the component in a crafting grid and surrounding it with the necessary resources for the next upgrade (I recommend NotEnoughItems!).
By the time you've been using Mekanism for a while, you'll have a near-instructible suit of Obsidian Armor, be obtaining four ingots for each ore you mine, have the ability to fly wherever you want with the hydrogen-powered jetpacks, and have a cute robotic friend following you around while you mine.
It's in no way complete, but Mekanism has it's own wiki now on wikispaces. Please contribute if you know anything at all about the mod!

Source Code & Modpacks
Mekanism is under the MIT license, giving you, as a user or developer, near-absolute rights to my mod. This means you can go through my source code and learn from it yourself, even take some of its code and use it in your own public works. This means that I encourage modpack owners to use Mekanism in their packwithout asking me. It's annoying to approve every single owner's modpack request, and I honestly may just say no if you send me a PM asking. If you need proof, just link this page.
