Redpower Autocrafting Network

Recommended Posts

Hello, World!

One of the main thinks that I love about Minecraft, and mods in general, is the fact that there is such a posibility of innovation that can spawn even more ideas and builds for others. This is even more true for mod packs, since many great minds can come together and dream up something truely big! With the addition of sortrons to Redpower, I've attempted to create something that will allow further improvements to how our builds are created. This is why I bring you my Redpower and Factorization Autocrafting System!

Now, before anything else is said; Yes, I did make this using the FTB modpack. Yes, I do use FTB in my SSP series. No, I do not hold any sort of hatred to the Tekkit/Technic team - they are reaching out to the community in how they see fit, and have thus created an area where this sort of innovation happens. Cudos. I would like this discussion to be in the spirit of innovation, and not turn into a flame war of any discription: but hey, I know it won't happen!

Now, for the build. Most of it is explained in my video:

The gist of the system is that the computer uses the sortron to check whether an ID that you give it matches with any of the items inside of the chests: if so, it will pull out the quantity needed. For the crafter, it then sends those items to a buffer, where it confirms that it has ALL of the items needed to craft the item you want. Once that is confirmed, the items are sent to the crafting module using RP and factorization, and then is crafted and sent back to the main chest. The best part of this system is that it can do this recursively, crafting the items needed in the crafting recipe if they aren't available, such as using a log to gather the sticks for a diamond pick.

Now, I know that logistics pipes could be used instead of this, but there would be two advantages I could think of: a) If LP is not added to the server, this is a viable substitute, and B) It only comes in one size, and thus can carry many recipes.

What do you guys think, and what sort of new builds can you think of?

Interesting execution. Although on the note of FTB being hated here. It isn't. It just provides options, so don't worry about what you speak out on these forums. We, the users aren't censored.

I don't hate on FTB, and I'm sure most other Technic users feel that way too. They sure hate on us, but we don't mind. I like the crafting system, it's different than the usual LP/BC setups. :)

I wasn't too sure, and just wanted to cover my bases. =) I don't believe that the FTB people necessarily hate on the player base, but the pack itself - whether that is better or worse, I can't say.
