Gate Settings Duplicator

With the Gate Settings Duplicator you can simply copy and paste Gate Settings.
Right-Click on gate will copy the settings.
Sneak+Right-Click will paste it.

  • Recipe:

    Wrench AutarchicGate


Round Robin Transport Pipe

will change output per item(stack)

  • Recipe:

    StoneTransportPipe Gravel

Insertion Transport Pipe

Insertion Pipes given the choice between putting a item in the pipe in to an inventory (A chest or a furnace) and passing it along to another pipe, the Insertion Pipe will always try to add the item to the inventory.

This pipe is very useful for feedback loops as it forces the item to go in to the last machine if it can.

  • Recipe:

    IronTransportPipe CactusGreen

Extraction Transport Pipe

Extraction Pipe is the opposite of the Insertion Pipe. If the pipe can choose between an inventory and another pipe the pipe will always go with the next pipe. Also this pipe behaves the same as a wood pipe where it will pull items out of an inventory if the pipe has an active redstone engine applied to it.

This pipe is useful for tight spaces where you do not want a pipe to accidentally fill a chest or machine.

  • Recipe:

    WoodTransportPipe Planks

Bounce Transport Pipe

This pipe will cause whatever enters the pipe to come back out the way it came unless the pipe is powered by redstone, then it behaves as a normal pipe.

  • Recipe:

    StoneTransportPipe Cobblestone

Crossover Transport Pipe

This pipe will direct material entering it to the pipe (or something accepting material, like chests) directly across from it. If no such pipe exists, a random direction is chosen.

  • Recipe:

    StoneTransportPipe IronTransportPipe

Compactor Transport Pipe

Combines items(tacks) to larger itemstacks (currently to itemstacks >= 16 items)
can be toggled/switched by ABO-Actions and Redstone

  • Recipe:

    StoneTransportPipe Piston

Valve Pipe

acts like a (golden) wooden pipe (without need of wooden engine)
can be toggled/switched by ABO-Actions and Redstone

can empty a full tank with enough (=full) pressure for two golden pipes in seconds!

  • Recipe:

    WoodenWaterproofPipe AutarchicGate

Golden Iron Waterproof Pipe

acts like a iron pipe with speed of a golden pipe

  • Recipe:

    GoldenWaterproofPipe IronWaterproofPipe

Balancing Waterproof Pipe

balances liquid of connected tanks

Thanks to Oxygene13 for his idea :-)

  • Recipe:

    WoodenWaterproofPipe IronORGate WoodenWaterproofPipe

Diamond Waterproof Pipe

acts like a diamond pipe but for liquids. every filter item not being a bucket or liquid gets ignored.

  • Recipe:

    DiamondTransportPipe PipeWaterproof

  • GUI:

    • Left Click: Set next liquid on clicked slot
    • Right Click: Set previous liquid on clicked slot
    • Middle Click: Delete filter on clicked slot

Power Switch Pipe

acts as lever for power pipes
can be toggled/switched by ABO-Actions and Redstone

  • Recipe:

    GoldenKinesisPipe Lever

Directed Kinesis Pipe

acts as a diode/iron pipe for kinesis pipes

  • Recipe:

    GoldenKinesisPipe IronANDGate

Distribution Kinesis Pipe

acts as a power distributor - every filter line which has an item in it is "open" to receive power

  • Recipe:

    DiamondTransportPipe DirectedKinesisPipe

  • GUI:

    You can toggle each side on or off via GUI.

    Diamond Kinesis Pipe GUI

Water Pump Pipe

soaks water from a source block below it

  • (Shaped) Recipe:

    X GoldenWaterproofPipe X<br> RedstoneDust IronGear RedstoneDust<br> X WoodenWaterproofPipe X<br>

Original by AdditionalPipes

It will only show up if AdditionalPipes is not installed and tries to use the same Id.

Since both pipe do the same (I even have copied the Recipe), you can load old maps where you only used the Water Pump Pipe.


Safe-Engine Trigger

acts like the blue & green state trigger, so it will be active as long the engines are "blue" or "green"

i.e power them up via an AND gate and an external wire signal, but have an "emergency stop"


Switch On Pipe

activates the pipe as long as the action is active (On/Off via Signal)
a pipe toggled "on" will be set to off if switch-on is deactivated

Toggle On Pipe

activates the pipe and keeps it activated until a ToggleOff/SwitchOn occurs (On via Signal)

Toggle Off Pipe

deactivates the pipe (Off via Signal)
