RFTools Mod includes several specialized tools meant to work with the Redflux mod. However, it also contains blocks and items that are usable even without Redflux installed. With a recent update making it compatible with Minecraft 1.16.x, RFTools is easy to install and play with, even if you’re unwilling to turn back your game version. But if you are, there are earlier versions too, and you can find a version of this mod to work with Minecraft. This is excellent news if you’re using older, dated mods that have yet to be updated and want to use this one.
But why would you want to use RFTools mod? Well, anyone who wants new machinery to automate simple tasks will find a lot to like in this mod. Some sensor blocks relay signals to other blocks once certain conditions have been met, like how solar panels can tell when the sun is out and then send a signal because of it. You can set this parameter in several ways, including one where a signal is transmitted once surrounding crops are fully grown. Attaching this block to a farming station can easily automate your farming, and that’s just one of the things RFTools does for you.
RFTools Manual: an in-game craftable manual for this mod.
RF Network Monitor: with this item, you can check out the RF situation in a set of connected blocks and find where all the energy is going.
RF Monitor: this block can monitor the RF situation in another block near it (3x3x3 area). It gives a visual representation of the amount of RF in the block and can also send out a Redstone signal under certain conditions.
Crafter: This automatic crafter can handle up to 8 recipes at once and allows crafting recipes to use the results of earlier recipes in the same machine.
Scanner: with this block, you can easily find your stuff in your storage network.
Power Relay: with this block, you can throttle down a part of your power network if a Redstone signal is given (or not). This can be used (in combination with the RF Monitor) to turn off ore procession (for example) in case your main power system doesn’t have enough power.
Teleportation system: several blocks for a powerful teleportation system.
