How long the pipe can be? I see uses for it but would like to know how far the pipe system can transport an item.

I didn't put any limit - thinking of adding a maximum lifetime to objects in the pipe as it's the case when they're on the ground, like a day or so, but that shouldn't be a hard limitation.

Let me know what you'd like to do - might influence future evolutions.

I'm trying to post pictures on the thread but there seems to have been a limit reached and no attachment is allowed... Here's a first video:

I dont recommend using the forum's attachment option, I'ts better to upload them via a hoster, like imgur or imageshack (imgur.com, imageshack.com) :Notch:

Was thinking about a pipeline from near the bedrock to my floating island ) about (100 blocks) so I do not have to run up and down for cobblestone which I need for building on surface. Also making a transportation net between mining bases and main storage (several hundreds of blocks)to call more tools when needed. Those are the first things that came to my mind. Was just wondering if items remain if the transit tube is very long and items get too far from me as loose blocks do seem to vanish if you travel too far from them.

Well, Will try it but without gold pipes (My world is quite sparse in regards of gold or I am just unlucky) the transit times could be rather long.

That should work just fine. Don't forget to save your world before trying this out though - it's still a first release and you never know...

Understood - will keep that in mind. Let me know how much time it takes when you try it out!

This mod is amazing, great work!

I did notice a bug though: Pine or Birch saplings that move through the pipes all become regular saplings, and any tools that enter the pipes get completely repaired.  Seems like some extra item data doesn't get passed along through the pipes.

Will it be possible for pipes to 'suck up' items that are lying on the floor in future versions, perhaps with a special block?  It would be great to have a pipe system that collects and sorts the drops from your mob grinders and traps.

Cool mod, this will be useful for moving resources from one house to the other.
Minecraft demo, now there is NO excuse to pirate it!

May I ask what machine_front.png, machine_side and mining_machine_top.png are for? A future update for a 3-texture-parted auto-miner? (Like pumpkin: 1 texture for the bottom, 1 for the top and 1 for all 4 sides)

Mining wells (when activated) and mining pipes (when placed) crash my game.
Is this some odd interaction with the other mods I'm using or is this feature still WIP?

Interesting. I kinda see where this is coming from, thanks for the report! I'm opening a ticket on this and will fix in the next release.

Some kind of a vacuum pipe? Sounds interesting - keeping that in mind! Definitely technically feasible.

Right on the spot :-) I still have to work out some specifics there.

Potentially - but it's difficult to say without a backtrace. Could you launch the game from the command line, and see what it yells? I may have stabilities issues on my end.

Is it on a brand new world or an existing one? Does it work fine on a new world?

Interested to see where this is going. MC as a 'contraption game' is where it truly shines, I think. Can't have enough tools for that.
