The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I remember there was an industrial mod that allows you to have pipes and so on, create a mining drill and arrange pipes, "electricity(?)" and so on. Basically a huge modpack which makes Minecraft a bit more complex, or so in my opinion.
I don't think you'll find any mods for 1.10 (which you've tagged the post as) yet (except for Optifine), since Forge hasn't released for 1.10 yet. However, the mining drill is from IndustrialCraft, which has WIP versions for 1.8.9 and 1.9 and a whole separate forum. It doesn't offer much in the way of pipes, unless you mean the overhaul mod for it known as GregTech.
