Minecraft Mod - Codename : ELN

Codacy Badge

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

Look at the official project website and the Wiki to get general information.

This is a fork of Electrical Age, maintained by Jared Dunbar (jrddunbr) and Graham Nothup (Grissess), with the intent to add features and push for active development, which is incorporated back into the main distribution as they see fit.

How to get started

ElectricalAge is Minecraft 1.7.10 compatible only. Forge is needed.

  1. Visit the releases page on GitHub for the latest stable build.

  2. Download the latest build, and add the jar to your launcher. Be sure that you are using Forge 1.7.10, revision 1614.

  3. Launch, and have fun!

  4. Download the test world.

Building from source

You can compile and launch the current development version. Download or clone the base branch. Then build and launch using Gradle:

$ git clone
$ cd ElectricalAge
$ ./gradlew setupDecompWorkspace
$ ./gradlew 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. Behavior 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

X-Ray 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 and between mod updates.
