THX MindKrafter, i can confirm that the config-file now for me is created at the right place.
May 31, 2012This threats about programming languages brings me to laughing.Posted in: Minecraft Mods
I'm feel me backportet at least 25 years.
"You have to use asm because its fastest : No you have to use Pascal because its portable : No you have to use C because it works on most computers and is faster then Pascal : No use BASIC because big C-programms are unreadable spagetti-code : No use GFA-Basic because its easy to learn : No use Forth because... : No use Prolog because... : No use this ... and no use that ...."
I'm now 55 years old and programming since i was 20i and belive me i'm programmed a lot of different languages in my life.
The right programming-language only depends on what you want to do with it !
A verry simple programm is written mutch faster and does it's job better in Basic then in eg. C
And if a programm is easy to read/understand for someone other who has to expand it (or even yourself after some years) or is spagetti-code depends on your programming-style and not on the choosen language.
Wait some days/weeks/months/years and i'm shure there are a lot more languages for RP-Control. Eatch one with positivs and negativs, but which is the best only depends on what you want do with it, and not on what it is!

The Boombox-Mod runs fine for me if i use the Mod as Zip in the Mods-Folder, no need to put it into jar if it is packet as zip.
Tested with MC-1.25, Modloader 1.2.5, Forge 220.127.116.11, so i'm think there would be a lot easier installation at all as it is now.
I send u via PM a link to a zip-file i made. Please take a look at it. the enclosed ReadMe is only a short-cut. you must rewrite it to your "realy-want", but i'm think a download like this is more user-friendly as it is actual.

..... and people here are very helping. Especially Hydrogen/TangetDelta, Kyo, VertexBeta, and Casper7256........
Programmers are (almost) all verry friendly and helpfull and therefore you find in this thread no (seldom) things like "You noob go on and find it yourself"
May be this is because we Programmers are hmmm what is the Englisch word for "Nachtmenschen" Night-Living-People may be :smile.gif:

Direwolf has a 3-part spotlight:
KirinDave has videos on RedNet:
Wylker covers the Programmable RedNet Controller:
Wylker covers the entire mod including new content in a two-part series:
BevoLJ covers the entire mod as well in a two-part series of his own:
Wylker covers every update I guess:
Wylker made this video covering the new stuff in 2.2:
Wylker made this video covering the new stuff in 2.1:
RedstoneNightmare made this video covering MFR which goes over most of the features (and a few bugs that have since been fixed):
Wylker also did a pretty good video on the basics of how to use MFR:
If you're thinking "haven't I seen this somewhere else", well, you probably have. The original MineFactory dates back to beta 1.4 (if not 1.3, I forget). I took over around beta 1.6-1.7 and called it Reloaded, and kept up until 1.0, at which point I had to retire due to real life time shortages. I left it with TehKrush, who then gave it to AtomicStryker, and now I have it back. And now I have made a complete overhaul of the thing. You're welcome!
MFR aims to automate a number of tasks that previously would be difficult, boring, or work-intensive. It also provides some additional support blocks and machines.
The first thing you'll need to make is rubber. You can find MFR rubber trees in swamps - look for the bright green leaves - but IC2 rubber will also work. The config file allows you to disable MFR rubber trees in worldgen in case you prefer IC2 rubber trees. Once you have raw rubber, smelt it once to get rubber bars, and then again to get plastic:
(Top: IC2 rubberballs, bottom: MFR rubberbars)
Then, take your raw plastic and craft it into plastic sheets:
Finally, make machine blocks:
And a hammer:
You'll need it to rotate machines. OmniTools supports it as of 3.0.0, for those of you rolling your eyes at 'yet another tool'.
There's also "ceramic dyes", used for a few things later. Substitute the dye of your choice to change the color.
Due to MFR liquids being placeable in the world, milk buckets can no longer be drank from. Instead, you can make milk bottles:
There is the ability to smelt sugar into sugar charcoal:
Weaker than standard charcoal, but easy to come by.
Some machines accept upgrades:
There are numerous upgrade tiers, all crafted like this but with the top material changed (to gold, bronze, silver, diamonds, etc). Upgrades boost the effective radius of a machine. Machines with upgrade slots will have a single slot with a 'ghosted' upgrade spite in it.
I'll also take a moment to explain the MFR GUIs. Most machines will look like this:
Some may not have an inventory or a liquid storage bar. From left to right, the four bars at the right are:
- Liquid stored
- Power stored
- Progress towards completion, which is not always used
- Idle countdown, which occurs if a machine can't do anything (to reduce CPU load)
All machines can be broken by hand; you don't even need a pick. Breaking a machine will drop its items but destroy any power, liquid, or work progress it has built up.
Finally, all machines can be powered by BuildCraft power (or Thermal Expansion conduits) or IC2 power (up to MV only!). All machines can be serviced by any standard liquid pipes (BC or TE), and will attempt to drop items into BC pipes first, then adjacent inventories, and finally will just drop items onto the ground.
The first thing you'll need is a planter:
Planters affect a 3x3x1 area above them. Place dirt* in a 3x3 grid, and center the planter directly under it. Place plants in the planter, and it will plant them. It understands every vanilla plant, from wheat to carrots to trees to cocoa, as well as IC2 rubber trees, RP2 rubber trees and flax, ExtraBiomesXL trees, and everything from Pam's HarvestCraft except apple trees.
*assuming your plant grows in dirt. If you're farming netherwart, use soulsand, etc.
The planter GUI looks like this:
If you do not set anything in the Filter slots, it will plant whatever wherever. If you do set a filter, it will divide its area into 9 segments (matching the colors on top of the planter) and will put only that plant in that segment. In that way, the planter can manage up to 9 distinct plants.
Planters accept upgrades.
Next, you'll want a harvester:
Harvesters affect a 3x3x1 area in front of them. Center the harvester so its animated face is aimed at the middle of one of the sides of the 3x3 area immediately above your dirt block (so it's touching any plants in that tile) and power it. It understands the same set of plants the planter does, as well as some extra things like flowers and tall grass. Harvesters slowly produce sludge, a liquid which will be covered later.
Harvesters also have a special GUI:
It has three extra settings:
- "Shear Leaves": if Yes, it will act like shears on leaf blocks. You'll get no saplings, but a ton of leaf blocks. Useful if you want to have a ton of cheap scaffolding and you have spare saplings. (Screenshot is old, text says 'shear' now)
- "Small Shrooms": if Yes, it will harvest small mushrooms instead of ignoring them. This is provided so you can decide between mushroom-spreading farms and mushroom-growing farms.
- "Jungle Wood": if Yes, it will harvest (vanilla) jungle wood instead of ignoring it. This is provided so you can grow cocoa, as it must be attached to jungle wood.
The height it searches for cactus and sugarcane can also be changed, in case you ever need to do that.
Harvesters accept upgrades. Note that the GUI screenshot above is old and doesn't show the upgrade slot.
Next, you'll probably want a fertilizer:
Fertilizers are placed the same way as harvesters, except on a separate side. They act like the player using bonemeal. They do not run off bonemeal by default (but this can be enabled in the config), but instead on a special MFR fertilizer:
If IC2 is installed, IC2's fertilizer will also work; likewise with Forestry and its fertilizer. The fertilizer understands everything the planter does (try it on flax!).
The Fertilizer accepts upgrades.
Finally, there's the new Fruit Picker:
The Fruit Picker is used to pick fruit off trees where the tree or plant itself is not cut down. By default it understands cocoa as well as fruit from Harvestcraft.
Animal farming has changed wildly from MFR 1.x. All animal machines, unless otherwise specified, affect a 5x5 area. It all now starts with a breeder:
The breeder will consume wheat to place any animals in front of it 'in love'. Once they breed, you'll want to use a Chronotyper:
Which can be used to filter children from adults, or vice-versa. It will place sorted animals behind it. Note that chronotyped babies will still try to walk towards their parents because you are a horrible person.
The Chronotyper GUI has a single button that allows you to toggle between babies and adults as the target.
If they aren't growing up fast enough, get a Vet:
Vets can use syringes on animals. The base syringe is fairly easy to make:
And then you can make health syringes:
Or growth syringes:
If golden carrots are too expensive, you can try your luck at zombie syringes which usually work:
But I take no responsibility for a sudden growth of undead.
There are de-zombification syringes, which can cure villagers:
And slime embiggening syringes to make slimes bigger, solving a vital problem everybody faces
Health syringes heal animals a small amount. Growth syringes turn babies into adults. There are rumors that this works on villagers too...
All syringes are reusable and turn into the empty version when used. You can use them from your hand, as well.
Once they grow up, you can use a second Chronotyper to pull the adults out. You now have two choices.
You can use a Rancher:
The MFR 2.x Rancher is very different from its older counterpart. It can do the following:
- Milk from cows and Mooshrooms
- Mushroom soup from Mooshrooms (put empty bowls in the inventory)
- Wool from sheep
- Ink from squid
These things instantly kill any mob in front of them and produce one of their drops at random. Grinders slowly produce liquid Mob Essence as a side effect, which will be covered later. They work on any vanilla mob (except villagers), allowing you to build fuilly automated harvesters for things like blaze rods or spider eyes that normally require the player to kill the mob or a lot of extra effort. They will even retrieve any enchanted items!
The Grider must be manually programmed by me for any modded mob. If your favorite mod lacks support, tell me.
Finally, you should consider putting Sewers under your animal pens:
Sewers very slowly generate Sewage, a liquid that will be covered later. They do not require power. Sewers only cover a 1x1 area above them, unlike other animal machines. The more animals within a sewer's operation area, and the bigger they are, the more sewage is produced.
Sewers accept upgrades. Sewers will shut down if they detect another sewer within their operational area.
And if you're wondering how to get the animals to your base, try a Safari Net:
Did you know that every time you lure animals with food or transport them by minecarts for miles a ghast cries? It's true! And now you can harvest that power to transport them much more easily. Safari nets work like programmable mob spawn eggs - right click on a mob to capture it, and then again on the ground to place it. Works on hostile mobs, but not villagers. And it even gets the spawn egg colors while 'full'.
Over time those ghast tears turn into slimes, which are a pale imitation of their ghastly brothers but still do the job:
This version is cheaper but will be consumed when the mob is placed.
For the mean people among you, there's the Jailer's Safari Net:
Mobs placed with this will not despawn. This is not 100% guaranteed because minecraft, but it works in most cases.
Have you wanted to capture mobs from a distance, or perhaps shower your friends in creeprs? The Safari Net Launcher has your back:
Just rightclick to fire.
If you find a mob spawner but it's not in a useful place, get a Portaspawner:
Rightclick on a (vanilla) spawner to pick it up, then rightclick again to place it. This item is only good for a single use. Note that it respects any custom spawner settings, in case a mod generates a special one.
If you're low on food, there's the Slaughterhouse:
The slaughterhouse acts similar to the grinder, except it produces liquid meat instead of mob essence (and no items). It also sometimes produces pink slime instead. Both of these can be sent to a meat packer:
Liquid meat turns into meat ingots, and pink slime turns into meat nuggets. These can be crafted into each other and meat blocks:
You can also cook and eat them of course.
Sometimes placing pink slime liquid in the world will turn it into Pink Slimes. They drop pink slimeballs (no use yet), but they can drop meat too if you're creative about things.
One of the oldest features of MineFactory (even before the Reloaded) has been conveyor belts. They're still here:
(It makes 16 at a time, this is an old screenshot). Conveyors carry entities along them - items for one, but any mob or player as well. Make escalators!
You can now dye them with ceramic dyes:
To get things onto conveyors, use an Ejector:
A redstone pulse will pull from any adjacent inventories and eject out the 'hole'.
Items on conveyors can be sorted with Item Routers:
The slots correspond to the colored sides. It will output into the air, an adjacent inventory, or a BuildCraft pipe. It also has a single-slot internal inventory so incoming pipes/etc can place things into it. The top is a valid input but not output to avoid items bouncing in and out forever.
Item routers can pull things off MFR conveyors placed on top of them if that item has a valid route in the router.
There's also an Enchantment Router:
It acts kind of like the item router, but sorts by enchantments. If you put a sword with Sharpness I and Knockback I in it, and item with Sharpness or Knockback will be matched. Finally, a way to dispose of all of those items with Bane of Arthropods!
You can end conveyors with an Item Collector:
Any items that bump into them will be placed into adjacent chests. It understands sided inventories (like furnaces), too. Unlike Item Routers, they will never drop into the world.
What if you want to sort liquids? Well, the Liquid Router has that covered:
Behaves like the Item Router. Works with BC pipes and TE liquiducts. Should work with most tanks and tank-like machines. To sort, place a container of the liquid you want in the matching slot - i.e. a bucket of water in the red slot will make water go to the red side.
Next up, we have the Fisher:
The fisher must be placed over at least 3x3x1 of water, so that the bottom face of the fisher is touching the center water tile. It will then slowly produce fish.
There's also a block breaker:
Pretty much every mod has one of these, this is just around for save compatibility more than anything. That and people that like conveyor belts I guess.
The Weather Collector can generate water from rain or snowballs from snow:
It does nothing in a desert. There's no rain there, what did you expect? It's most intended for people playing with mods that disable infinite water.
The sludge from earlier? It goes into a Sludge Boiler:
Which will slowly turn it into sand, dirt, and clay (and very rarely soulsand). If you have ExtraBiomesXL installed, it will also produce cracked sand and quicksand occasionally. Warning: standing next to an active sludge boiler may be hazardous to your health.
Sewage goes into a composter:
Which produces Fertilizer items.
Ever have the feeling that there just isn't enough lava in the world? The Lava Fabricator has your back:
There's also an Oil Fabricator for those of you who feel the urge to pollute as much as possible:
588kMJ/B (+12kMJ to refine it to fuel, which is worth 600kMJ/B). This thing is very slow due to the immense energy draw, so be patient.
Mob essence (and a ton of power) goes into an Auto-Enchanter:
Which will install a random enchantment onto whatever is inside of it (it uses the same algorithm the standard enchanting table does). It has its own GUI as well:
Allowing you to adjust the target level. Energy/Mob Essence cost to enchant is roughly (level^4) - low levels are cheap, 30 is gonna take a while.
The Auto-Enchanter can be used to take a second (and more) pass at enchanting items, but note that the cost goes up extremely fast relative to the number of enchantments already on the item!
As a new feature, you can "enchant" empty bottles and it will generate XP bottles. You can also drink mob essence with the straw to gain a level. If you want to get mob essence from your levels, use an XP extractor:
You can now go the other way around too, with an Auto-Disenchanter:
This machine has two input and two output slots. Enchanted items and books are placed in the inputs. When it completes, it will remove one enchantment at random from the item and install it on the book. The item will then be damaged - if this would destroy the tool, it will be lost.
Top/bottom are input, sides are output. If you're using an inventory management mod (like MFR) that understands 1.5's sided inventory system, you don't need to worry about the books and items getting mixed up, the machine will automatically filter them.
Finally, there's an Auto-Anvil too:
It acts much like a vanilla anvil, but it cannot rename items.
If you aren't happy with which mobs you have, you can use an Auto-Spawner instead:
It has a single slot which must be programmed with a safari net. However, whichever mob is in the net will be spawned. Spawning mobs requires mob essence and (a lot of) power.
The Auto-Spawner has an exact mode. When this is active, the mob contained in the safari net will be duplicated exactly, including things like villager trade data, sheep wool color, etc. However, inventory is not duplicated to prevent abuse. Exact mode requires more time, power, and essence.
Do you have too much cobble? Now you can put it in a Deep Storage Unit:
This thing holds up to two billion of whatever you put inside it. The GUI looks like this:
You can change which sides connect to the IN slots vs the OUT slots, as well as manipulate what it contains. It will attempt to keep a full stack of its stored items in the output slots, and if the item is stackable, will leave one in each of the two input slots so that it's automatically filtered when connected to pipes/tubes/whatever (two input slots so that a stack of 64 can fit in one go). In addition, if you break it, it will remember its contents.
There is a config option to enable a cheaper recipe, if the requirement of ender pearls seems too expensive for what it does.
MFR also has the autocrafter to end all autocrafters, the LiquiCrafter:
It has a crazy GUI that looks like this:
Here I am using it to make IC2 coolant cells. It works like the following:
- Set recipe template at top left.
- Place materials used in the two rows below the template.
- Apply redstone pulse.
- Remove produced item from output.
It also understands damagable items - you can use it to mass-produce RP2 microblocks! You just need to put a saw in the resources section.
Sides are input (resources), top/bottom are output (output slot).
If you're still confused, I suggest you watch Wylker's 2.1 video above.
Do you have problems with multiple equivalent ores? Try the Unifier:
It has two slots, in (top) and out (bottom). It will attempt to turn anything in the top slot into the first Ore Dictionary entry for that item. For example, you can use this on a Mystcraft Dense Ores age to turn TE, IC2, RP2, Forestry, etc coppers into just one copper. You can tell it up to 9 items to prefer to unify to in the Preferences grid. It can also convert MFR biofuel and Forestry ethanol to each other.
If you need more ores, try the Laser Drill:
Which also needs a Laser Drill Precharger (or 4):
To use this, first, dig a hole to bedrock. Place the drill over the hole. Place 1-4 prechargers facing the drill but one block away from it. When you supply power to the prechargers, the main drill will begin mining and will produce ores out of its top face.
To get a pink slimeball, you need to kill a pink slime. You get pink slimes by placing a bucket of pink slime from the slaughterhouse in the world.
The Laser Drill also comes with Laser Focus items:
(one per color)
These bias the drill towards certain ores. For example, red makes redstone more likely. Which is which is up to the player to figure out.
Once you have your ores, try the Block Smasher:
This is an in-inventory processing system that will act like a Fortune pick on whatever is sent into it. You can configure the fortune level from 0-3. Levels 1 and above require mob essence to run.
Do you like potions? Try the Auto-Brewer:
Its GUI looks like this:
Set the slots under "Type" to the ingredients you want to add. Then place resources in the resources section and water bottles in the Potion slot. It will process row-by-row. The Auto-Brewer is sideless; any side can be used to extract completed potions or invalid ingredients and add new ingredients and water bottles.
Got too many saplings and seeds? Shove them into a BioReactor:
The GUI looks like this:
The top 9 slots are input, and the next row of 9 are the internal buffer. Each internal slot must have a distinct type of plant - anything the Planter understands is acceptable fuel. The more types of saplings and seeds (etc) you add, the more fuel it generates per item available, so it's preferable to have many kinds of things to put it in it. It generates BioFuel, which is sent to a BioFuel Generator:
Which produces BuildCraft energy. If you want IC2 or UE output, use Power Converters.
Is your factory not pretty enough? Try stained glass:
Makes both panes and blocks, and available in all 16 colors. Note that due to how minecraft's rendering works, water and ice behind stained glass will be invisible. I cannot fix this. Take this into account when building colorful glass walls in waterfalls.
New in 2.2, vanilla glass panes and MFR glass panes will connect to each other. This feature requires overwriting the vanilla glass pane block to work - if another mod does that for some reason, only one will work. If you disable the vanilla glass pane overwrite in the config, they will not connect.
Have you ever wanted to automate playing records? No? Well too bad, you get the Auto Jukebox anyway:
The GUI looks like this:
The top slot is accessible on all six sides by pipes (etc). If the top slot contains a record, a rising redstone edge will cause it to begin playing that record. If the top slot is empty, a rising redstone edge will cause it to stop playback.
The GUI has buttons for play (needs a record) and stop. It also has a record button. To use that, you put a record in the top slot and a blank record in the bottom slot. It will duplicate the record into the blank record.
You can make Blank Records like this:
Are you tired of your Ice Fortress Of Solitude melting because you wanted to see things? Try our new, unmelting ice:
This ice does not melt in the presence of light sources and will not create water sources when broken (but you still need silk touch to move it). Note that this requires overwriting the vanilla ice block to work - if another mod does that for some reason, only one will work. if you disable the vanilla ice overwrite in the config, unmelting ice will be unavailable.
Want to use ice to make your roads slippery but are tired of farming ice? Well, now there's actual roads:
These are slippery like ice but look more like, well, roads. If you want to light up your paths, consider road lights:
They will provide light when powered with redstone. If you'd prefer to not have to deal with redstone torches, grab an inverted road light:
Inverted lights can be turned back into normal ones the same way.
There's also a bunch of decorative brick types:
The glowstone bricks emit light.
There's also blackstone and whitestone (for white, replace the ink with sugar):
You can also craft mossy cobble now:
There's a Spyglass, for reading coordinates of blocks when doing complex builds:
A ruler, for reading distances:
And a Straw, which allows you to drink various liquids found in the world. Warning: drinking some liquids may be bad for your health.
And even Vine Scaffolding, to make building large structures easier:
Hold RMB to stack them on each other. Breaking the bottom one will collapse the entire scaffold.
This is MFR's new Redstone Network system. The most basic component is the RedNet cable:
When placed, it will connect to any block it thinks it should. As of this writing, this is any any vanilla block with redstone properties, and any mod block at all. It contains 16 "subnets" that are chosen by rightclicking on the little color band that appears on a connected face with a hammer. You can also use dyes to rotate directly to a color (without consuming the dye). In this way, you can have multiple subnets within the same block by, for example, placing 3 levers around a cable.
RedNet cable carries analog singal levels (with a -1 penalty at the entrance for redstone dust only). A signal strength of 8 at an input will be 8 at the output no matter how far away it is.
Note for server owners: due to the cable not having any visual updates and not linking to vanilla (inert) building materials, this form of cabling is vastly more CPU and network efficient than certain other forms of redstone cable.
Next up is the Programmable RedNet Controller. You first need a PRC Housing:
Which you can use as a decroative block, or further craft into the PRC itself:
I could write a ton of words about this thing. So I did. There's an in-game manual you should check out:
What this thing actually is is a collection of logic circuits. It comes with space for six. The (very complex, admittedly) GUI looks like this:
"Prev" and "Next" cycle between pages of circuits. "Reinitialize" (which requires two clicks to confirm) will de-program the PRC and eject all expansion cards it contains (see below). To set up a circuit, click on it. You will then get a set of buttons to connect the inputs and outputs of that circuit. These can be connected to I/O (RedNet cables on each face), variables, constants (input only) or null (outputs only). As an example:
This PRC is configured for a 1-second timer (square wave), which is output to the "white" subnet of the RedNet cable connected to its east face. It would be very difficult to list every circuit here - you'll have to wait until I can get a wiki deal going. In the meantime, the vast majority of them are standard EE components like JK flipflops. Note that, like the cable, the PRC is an analog device - you can add and subtract signal values. If a strange value enters a RedNet cable, it will be clamped between 0 and 15 when it reaches an output that doesn't know about the RedNet API.
Again, if you've read this and have no idea what I just said, read the in-game manual. It has pretty complete walkthroughs on how do some neat things with just one PRC and some cables and associated parts.
The PRC can accept up to six upgrade cards, which come in 3 flavors:
Each card grants additional circuit pages and additional variables.
There's also a PRC memory card:
When used on a PRC, this will copy its program. Using it on another PRC while it carries a program will install that program on the target PRC. The target must have at least as much space as the source did. To clear it, place it in a crafting grid by itself.
There's a RedNet meter, too:
This will measure all values in a RedNet cable, as well as read out the values of all variables in a PRC.
If you like graphs, try the RedNet Historian:
This is somewhat of a WIP, but I wanted to release what I had. Right now, it can display a graph of redstone power over time on any RedNet subnet (change with dye - it doesn't visually reflect the selected channel yet).
For the musically inclined, there is the RedNote:
A RedNet value from 0-120 will trigger a note. Vanilla note blocks have 5 sets of 24 notes (one set per each of 5 'instruments'); in RedNote they are all available in sequence. Every other redstone transition will cause it to play a note. For fun, try a sine wave.
These things were around before Railcraft, but every time I try to get rid of them people tell me I'm ruining Christmas, so they're still here. You can make them like so:
Passenger rails (lapis, blue) and cargo rails (chests, red) allow you to automatically load and unload people/cargo. Passenger rails grab anyone nearby and do their best to drop them in a safe location, and cargo rails interact with adjacent inventories.
Passenger rail effective radius can be controlled from the config file.
Additional information available at the Technic Wiki. Note that some recipes may be shown for TE mode.

Show your love for MFR:
MFR has an API to allow you to add your own plants, animals, and other such things to its machines. Javadocs are provided for most everything, I think (if not, yell at me). The list of supported things you can do is:
- Plants for plant farming
- Mobs for the grinder
- Sludge boiler outputs
- Mobs for the rancher
- Safari Net "egg color" providers
- Random mob providers for the mystery safari net
- Liquid drinking handlers for the straw
- "IDSU" to allow you to interface directly with the DSU's full capacity
- RedNet connections and RedNet machines that can use all 16 subnets simultaneously
- RedNet logic circuits
- Myself (Power Crystals), for most development work
- Emy/Emys, who does additional development work
- NATO_chrisjm, who did all the sprites minus the conveyor, which is the lone surviving asset from the original mod
- CanVox, for the RedNet cable/PRC model
- Shukaro, denoflions, GSValore, and others who have sent me pull requests that I accepted
- All my betatesters including ldog, Brigadon, Emys, and Maiden.
- Feanorith, for the original MineFactory
- TehKrush/AtomicStryker/armed_troop, for maintaining it while I was gone (and doing the hard work of the 1.3/FML ports!)
- The Forge team for Forge, Mojang for Minecraft, etc
It's here! Finally, a way to wrangle all those power systems into one central location. PowerConverters understands IC2, BuildCraft, UniversalElectricity, and Railcraft steam.
2.x is a total rewrite. The secondary machines can now be found in MFR instead. The GeoMk2 is gone (its functionality became part of IC2 itself long ago); the Water Strainer has been replaced by the Liquid Router. The power-generating aspect of the Water Strainer is at least temporarily gone. I'm looking into some way of dealing with that in the future, but nothing yet. My apologies if you were relying on that.
allaryin made a video about the 2.1/2.2 changes:
allaryin made a video about PowerConverters:
RedstoneNightmare covered this mod, too:
First, you want to craft an Energy Bridge:
This will be the center of your conversion system. Put it somewhere. Next, pick one or more of the various mod systems below. You'll need at least one 'consumer' and one 'producer'. Put them adjacent to the bridge. You'll get a GUI like this:
At the top, "INPUT LIMITED" or "OUTPUT LIMITED" will tell you if you're drawing more than you're inputting, or vice-versa, respectively. Each row describes one face of the bridge, and lists the following data:
- Side relative to bridge
- Power system connected, if any
- Input vs output
- Rate (or "NO LINK" if the block on that face has no wires/pipes/etc connected to it).
Note that producer/consumer blocks' faces will change when a connection is detected.
There is also a universal charger as of 2.1:
This links to chests (anything with an inventory, really) and can charge items inside of those chests. It understands both IC2 and UE items. It can also charge items in the player's inventory if the player stands on it.
All recipes shown are for consumers; to get a producer, just put the consumer in a crafting grid (the reverse also works to get consumers back).
BC consumer/producers are available if either BC or TE are installed.FZ consumer:
Due to Factorization oddness, you must place PowerConverters blocks after the Factorization blocks.IC2 LV consumer:
IC2 MV consumer:
IC2 HV consumer:
IC2 EV consumer:
IC2 EV consumers have no upper limit on input pulse size, so they'll accept nonstandard wiring like GregTech superconductors just fine (though finding a way to output all that power might be difficult). EV producers output 2048EU. All IC2 producers will output a single pulse per tick of their specified voltage, but this can be increased in the config.Steam consumer:
Steam consumers/producers can be throttled in the config file if desired. Remember, ThermalExpansion Liquiducts are by far the most effiicent system for liquid transport.
In newer versions you need a battery instead of a battery box. Try both if you're confused.
UE 60V consumer:
UE 120V consumer:
UE 240V consumer:
UE 480V consumer:
Note that UE's own "Watt" is power/second, and the bridge displays power/tick. There is a factor of 20 difference between them. This is not a bug.PowerConverters 2.x exchange rate is based on the cost to smelt a single item in a furnace. This cost is 70KW (or KJ depending on how you look at it) for UE, 390 EU for IC2, and 160MJ for ThermalExpansion (which I'm counting for BC because BC has no furnace, and ignoring TE's special furnace recipes that are cheaper than normal). There's no such thing as a steam furnace, but the Railcraft wiki says it's 5 steam per 1 MJ, so we'll assume a theoretical steam furnace would consume 800mB.
So, inverting those (and adding a x10 to get rid of most of the decimals), we get the ratios as follows:
- UE: 10
- IC2: 1800
- BC/TE: 4375
- Steam: 875
- FZ: 875
Now, it's entirely possible to find another mod with different ratios that when combined with PowerConverters will cause a positive feedback loop (i.e. infinite energy). UE in particular has some rather weird default ratios that basically guarantee this can happen. I will not treat this as a bug - if you don't want it to happen, change the numbers (see below). If you manage to cause an infinite energy scenario using just my stuff though that's definitely a bug, tell me.
If you think they're too good, or you think one of the power systems is too weak compared to the others, or you want to add a deliberate loss during conversion, just go to the config. You can change the input and output multipliers for all four power systems individually.
These values are applied as such:
outputQuantity = inputQuantity * inputScale / outputScale
So if you had 100 MJ to convert to EU, you'd get 100 * 4375 / 1800 = 243.05 (or probably 224 in reality, due to EU pulse rules).
2.3.1 for Minecraft 1.5.1/1.5.2
- 1.5.1 update
- Added throttle controls to IC2/Steam modules

Ores in the Nether! Coal, diamond, gold, iron, lapis, redstone, tin, copper, emerald, silver, lead, uranium, and nikolite. Non-vanilla ores only spawn if a mod that uses them exists. All nether ores turn into their surface counterparts in a furnace - some (like redstone or coal) may need to be smacked with a pick or macerated to be made useful.
New in 2.x is the return of the not-bizarrely-bright texture, new ores, and way more config options! Now you can control how often nether ores spawn on a per-ore basis!

- Added localization support
- Added "Ore" to the ores that didn't have it in their name
- Added "min Y" option to oregen config
- Now uses PC Core's access transformer to aggro pigmen directly instead of by hitting them for 0 damage, which looks less stupid

- TE induction smelters yield 2 ore (and 3 with rich slag) per nether ore now.

- KingLemming from ThermalExpansion for letting me use some of his sprites as a basis
- NLZ for improving my sprites and letting me use his
Yes, you can do this with superflat customization, and there's a few other mods, but this is simpler than the customize dialog (especially for servers) and doesn't need any base class edits. I don't expect this will be especially popular but hey if I'm using it myself why not make it available for download anyway?
Only takes effect during world generation, so it will only affect new chunks.
There's no picture because seriously, it's just flat bedrock. No config file either because what on earth are you going to configure?
1.1.1 for Minecraft 1.5.1/1.5.2
Requires PowerCrystals Core (above).
Works on servers too.
- 1.5 update
- Works properly in the Nether - ceiling is flattened too, and turns to netherrack, not smoothstone.
- Actually depend on Core properly so it loads. Go me.
- Use PC Core for update notification.

License (all mods)
Free for non-commercial use. You are free to include any of my mods in any modpacks or server-specific packs without needing to ask permission (but it'd be nice to hear if you do!), provided something either in the download or on your site lists me as the creator. You are also free to produce Bukkit ports. A link to this thread would be nice for any of the above, but that's all I ask.
You also have implied permission to build mods that depend on PowerCrystalsCore, if you want some of the functionality in there.
I have a GitHub account! Feel free to check out how my stuff is programmed for your curiosity or even your own use, or just follow to see when I post bugfixes so you can laugh at how bad I am at programming. You may not claim source code from here wholesale as your own; if you're in doubt, just ask me.
I use a Jenkins system for builds. This means you can, if you want, use a pre-release build. These are not supported. Do not include betas in modpacks. Side effects may include:
- Worlds not loading or even being corrupted
- API breaking changes from beta to beta, or beta to release
- Save format changes between betas
Betas are tagged as "#.#.#B#" and release candidates as "#.#.#RC#". RCs should be safe from world corruption or other major breaking changes but may still be buggy.
If you've read all that and still want to try one, go here.
This thread mainly, obviously. Please do not PM me for support; I reserve the right to ignore any such PMs (stuff specific to one server, etc, that will never be relevant to another person is fine). And I can be found in #powercrystalsmods on EsperNet IRC if you're so inclined, I'm mostly only around in the evenings.
I don't really need the money, but some people have asked me to provide this, so here you go.

it works fine but one problem I click the play button and all I here is the click you here when u click on a button at the main menu or the saves menu plz help me
Make sure that there aren't any strange characters or numbers in the song's filename, that should fix the problem.
I have also updated Boombox to 1.2.5 and managed to get the animation working again (Yay!)
Edit: I just realized that i have repacked 1.2.5 to a version where I was messing with the speaker set up.
So at the moment,
a boombox by itself will play at normal sound level (locally),
a boombox with 1 speaker attached to one side will double the volume (locally) and
a boombox with 1 speaker attached to each side will play at double volume worldwide.
