The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
InvWorks Also, it uses Heat System as energy system (replacement for electricity).
Currently, you can cook an item, and refine ore to double the result in your inventory!
Also, you can move some fluids from containerto another container! You do not need any blocks!
(Which means, you can use 'inventory machines' even when you're mining diamonds,
if you have appropriate item in your inventory)
Heat-related Blocks in InvWorks has Temperature parameter. It is represented as 'color'.
As the temperature increases, the block gets red.
Heat is transferred between two nearby blocks,
from the block with the higher temperature to the another.
Temperature can be increased when heat is transferred in, or decreased otherwise.
Heat Cauldron: this is a special kind of a cauldron, which can contain up to 4 buckets of lava or water.
When nothing is in a heat cauldron, it just acts like Heat Block.
When a heat cauldron contains water and its temperature gets higher than 100 degrees Celsius,
the water evaporates and its temperature just stays at 100 degrees Celsius.
When a heat cauldron contains lava and its temperature gets lower than 1300 degrees Celsius,
the lava evaporates and its temperature just stays at 1300 degrees Celsius.
So, if you have attached the water heat cauldron and the lava heat cauldron,
heat will be transferred from lava cauldron to water cauldron.
The block between two cauldrons in the picture is the "Heat Block".
It can be placed between the heat-related blocks to transfer heat between them.
(Actually it is just a simple heat-related block with no other functionalities)
Heat Furnace is a heat-powered furnace,
which can get heat from either other blocks or fuels to cook materials.
The higher its temperature is, the faster It burns fuels and cooks materials.
When just used like a normal furnace:
When it is powered by the lava heat cauldron:
(In this case, the temperature of the cauldron and the furnace is 1300 degrees Celsius.)
InvWorks adds several items. Some are for recipes and some are for "Inventory Furnace"&"Inventory Fluid Heater",
"Inventory Furnace" is "MultiItem"(similar to MultiBlock, but for items in inventory) version of Heat Furnace,
and "Inventory Fluid Heater" is "MultiItem" for refining ore to double the results(ingots).
Heat Plate: This is an item for crafting recipes and components of MultiItem Heat Furnace.
It is the dark-gray plate item in the above picture.
Basically, it acts similar with the "Heat Block", except that this item is active in the inventory.
It is used for the MulriItem Heat Furnace as component.
Cook Progress Bar: This is an item for components of MultiItem Heat Furnace.
It is the item with horizontal lines in the above picture.
It shows the cook progress as its damage and the texture.
Fuel Bar: This is an item for components of MultiItem Heat Furnace.
It is the item with fire(either on or off) in the above picture.
It shows the remaining amount of the current burning fuel as its damage and the texture.
Lava Box: This is an item which can contain lava. It is the small rectangular item in the above picture.
Basically it acts like "Heat Cauldron".
You can put lava by crafting with the lava bucket with the box.
When it contains the lava, it can give off heat to nearby items whose temperature is lower then 1300.
The Lava Box can used for MultiItem Heat Furnace either as fuel or to raise its temperature.
Fluid Progress Bar: This is an item for components of MultiItem Fluid Heater.
It is the item with arrow pointing right in the above picture.
It shows the heating progress as its damage and the texture.
Item Tank: This is an item to save some fluids in it.
It is the item with round-square hole with fluids in the above picture.
It has capacity 4000mb, and the fluid in it is indicated by its damage and the texture.
Item Casting: This is an item to save some Ore Fluids, and cast them to ingots.
It is the item with ingot-shaped hole with fluids in the above picture.
Currently when it has Ore Fluid more than 1000mb, then it will give an ingot in the below slot in 3 seconds.
Machinery Bag: This is an item to save items similar to chest, especially for 'Inventory Machines'.
It is the bag-shaped item in the above picture.
There is 2 types of Machinery Bag:
the one is "Machinery Bag" with 3*9 slots, and the other is "Expanded Machinery Bag" with 6*9 slots.
Any Inventory Machines, including MultiItem-Structured Machines will be also active in the bags, unlike normal chest.
It can also be used as "Bag", but you are not allowed to put some another Machinery Bag in any Machinery Bag.
