Industrialization (I15N for short)
This plugins extends the vanilla game in a creative way.
It is inspired by SIP (Sponge Industrialization Project), an idea that appears to have deceased.
Built from armor stands wearing glass panes, these 'blocks' transfer items from one location to another.
Currently there is just one type of pipe which will pull/push items with no rules. Other pipes are planned, e.g. one-way pipes.
They are inspired by pipes in the popular BuildCraft mod.
Auto Crafting Bench
Another feature of BuildCraft that I have brought over to vanilla.
Add items to the crafting interface as usual, then when there is an output, the table will start crafting the recipe.
See how the table continues crafting when you don't have the interface open.
Combine this with pipes to feed input and extract output autonomously!
A FallingSand block atop an armor stand, with another armor stand for the pickaxe.
Inspired by ComputerCraft's mining turtles, these robots can be programmed to work by themselves.
Currently the only instructions they can do is move and rotate, but they will be able to mine resources, and store items in their own inventory.
