Create an automated crafting machine with this simple yet useful mod called Compacter! Created by the mod developer bdew, this mod adds a single block – the compacter.
What the Mod Offers
The mod adds a new block called the compacter. The block will try to craft items in a 2×2 or 3×3 pattern with the input materials and provide it as an output result. The recipe can be configured in a handy GUI, and the work can be controlled using the Redstone signal. The compacter can be used alongside RF or EU energy and other technology mods for automation.
Should You Install It?
The mod can be used with vanilla machines and contraptions but also works well with other mods installed. The mod is very useful and is an important first step to automation.
It will try crafting input items in either a 2×2 or 3×3 pattern (configurable in the GUI) and output the result.
It will process unlimited items per tick as long as enough items and energy are provided.
You can set it to work only when the Redstone signal is applied (configurable in the GUI).
The recursive compacting mode can be enabled from the GUI, which will try combining output items again (for e.g. compressed cobble).
The compacter will use RF or EU power for every operation.
Redstone control Always on; High signal; Low signal; Always off
