Ye Olde Tanks is a mod about anything and everything tanks related!
The barrel is a simple in-world fluid container. Barrels have a fluid capacity of 55,000 millibuckets (or 55 buckets); this can be changed in the config file (config/shadowfacts/YeOldeTanks.cfg). They can hold both Vanilla fluids as well as any mod fluids that use the Forge Fluid API (basically all of them). As you can see from the screenshot below, they A ) render the fluids that they contain, the texture is that of the fluid and the height of the fluid in the barrel corresponds to the amount of fluid in the barrel B ) can be shift+right-clicked to toggle the lid. If WAILA by ProfMobius is installed, YOT barrels will display the contained fluid and amount on the tooltip, as seen below.
In the case that WAILA is not installed, the Dipping Stick can be used to find out the contained fluid and amount; simply right click it on a barrel. The Dipping Stick is crafted with a stick and a barrel (the barrel is not deleted).
Infinite Water Bucket
The name says exactly what it does, it's a water bucket that can be used infinite times. Currently it does not work with the barrel or any machines, this functionality will be added in the next version.
