This mod is based on improving your vanilla Minecraft experience. It adds a lot of machines that can help you automate your Minecraft world. There also are some items that are pretty useful when you start a new world, more about that later down in this article.
First off I will show you some recipes, you can enable or disable them in the config file. After that I will start on the modded items and blocks, those all will have a description beneath the crafting recipe.
Now let's take a look into some modded machines, after every picture I will give a short instruction on how to use it. Once again everything you can turn on or off is in the config file.
This machine overrides some of the existing Minecraft mechanics. All your slabs and stairs cannot be made in a crafting table anymore, in order to make them you need a rock cutter. It's similar to a crafting table but more organized.
This machine is used to grind materials, for example grind stone into cobblestone, bones into bonemeal and so on. There are a lot more recipes for this machine, but that is something you need to figure out by yourself. This is a multiblock structure, there needs to be a hopper on top. In order to activate the machine you need to apply a redstone signal to it.
The egg incubator is used to get a chicken out of an egg guaranteed. You can right click the machine with a egg in your hand to put a egg in, then you can wait a long time or speed it up. To speed it up you just give it more wheat. You can even right click the block with a empty hand to select the side where you want the chicken to spawn.
This machine is used to break wooden blocks and drop them on the ground. You can right click the block to select the side you want the machine to cut. In order to activate the machine you need to apply a redstone signal to it. Be careful it also does damage to any creature standing close to the sawblades.
This machine can detect certain mobs in a certain area and their number, you right click on the block to open the user interface. You can set the radius where the radar will detect mobs, click on the next and previous buttons to cycle trough all the supported mobs. The output signal strenght is based on how many mobs there are in a area. You can also turn the signal from low to high if you so desire.
The best way to transport your items around. You can rotate it with an empty hand. You can apply a redstone signal to it to disable the block. It also can transport players, animals and monsters around.
This machine sprinkles water over your crops or to extinguish fires. It looks better then using a water source block and also covers more ground. In order to turn it on apply a redstone signal. You can rotate it with an empty hand.
This block is used to draw lines on. You need chalk in your hand before you can draw something. You can rotate it with an empty hand.
This mod also adds some fun and useful tools, all of them can be found in dungeons or in villages. Let us take a look into them right now.
The filter is a great item if you hate to break gravel a thousand times to get a piece of flint. To us it, right click on some gravel and it will drop a piece of flint and turn the gravel into sand. You can also right click on some clay for a chance to get some gold nuggets, a drop is not guaranteed but it will always turn the clay into sand. The only clay this will work on is clay that has been created by Minecraft and has not been harvested and picked up by players.
You can throw a bomb at your enemies to deal some damage to them. The explosion radius is around a third from default tnt.
In your default ocean biome you might find some chalk. You can use this to create chalk bricks in your stone cutter. In the future you might be able to find more then just chalk.
The shopping cart doesn't have much use at the moment. You can ride in it and thats realy all about it. In the future we might add some functionality for storing items and driving a entities or items around.
Found a bug?
There are and always will be bugs in software, that is why we have a issue tracker on Github. If you don't have a Github account you can also report them here.
Have been working on my game recently. WIll look at that probably when 1.8 is comming out. For the textures, it seems some issues with other mods. Have seen it before. Would you mind trying running the mod by itself?
I know the mod takes over making stone recipes, does it also take over Netherrack/brick oriented recipes? I've noticed we can't make NetherBrick blocks now. Was just wondering if it was part of the stone cutter or not.
