Minecraft Mod - Codename : ELN

Build Status FOSSA Status

Electrical Age (ELN) is a Minecraft Mod offering the ability to perform large-scale in-game electrical simulations.

Look at the official project website electrical-age.net and the Wiki to get general information. This official Minecraft forum post is updated frequently.

How to get started

ElectricalAge is Minecraft 1.7.10 compatible only. Forge is needed.

  1. Download the last mod release (other versions are available through the same link). Copy the Jar file to the .minecraft/mods/ directory (or related folder depending on your platform).
  2. Get started with the tutorial map or start playing on the offical demonstration map. The two official maps can be downloaded from here. They must be copied to the .minecraft/saves/ (or related) directory.
  3. Launch Minecraft using the 1.7.10-Forge profile, select the tutorial map and enjoy!

Or add it with the Curse launcher.

Building from source

Alternatively, you can compile and launch the current development version. Download or clone the develop branch. Then build and launch the tutorial map using Gradle:

$ git clone https://github.com/Electrical-Age/ElectricalAge.git
$ cd ElectricalAge
$ gradle unzipTutoMap runClient


We appreciate any help from the community to improve the mod. You can find more information here.


Here is some highlighted features:

A better simulation

Electrical simulation with resistive and capacitive effects. Behaviour similar to those of real life objects.

Multiple electrical machines and components

Furnaces, Solar panels, Wind turbines, Batteries, Capacitors, ...

Break the cube

Cables, sensors, actuators, alarms, etc. can be placed on each face (outer and inner) of a cube, which allows a significant reduction of the consumed space by electrical installations.

Night-lighting revisited

Lamps, switches, captors, ...

Small and big electrical consumers

From lamps and electrical furnaces to miners and transporters...

Incredible tools

XRay scanner, flashlight, portable mining drill...


Old redstone circuits can be exploited with electrical <-> redstone converters.

Game lifetime/complexity extended

A consequent list of new raw materials and items...


Electrical Age is still in Beta. Use at your own risk and do map backup frequently.
