Common Capabilities

This requires the Cyclops Core library!

Come talk to us in #commoncapabilities on the Cyclops Discord server!

This mod improves mod interactions, which are possible because of Forge's new capability system.
This does not provide any actual new content, it only improves existing interactions.
The goal of this mod is to provide standard capabilities that are useful for different mods, without those mods having to depend on each other.


If you were looking for the Tesla conversions to RF and EU, this feature has been moved to Energy Synergy.


Initially, this mod was part of Integrated Dynamics, to improve the 'readability' for various mods. This has been separated into this new mod because other mods might also benefit from these capabilities without having to depend on Integrated Dynamics.


This mod provides the following capabilities to the following mods:

  • Worker: Indicates if a machine can work, and has work.
    • Vanilla Minecraft
    • Ender IO
    • Forestry
    • IC2
    • Tinker's Construct
    • EvilCraft
  • Temperature: Used for things that can have a certain temperature.
    • Vanilla Minecraft
    • Forestry
    • IC2
  • Recipe Handler: exposes the recipes of machines
    • Integrated Dynamics
    • EvilCraft
  • Slotless Item Handler: A variant of the regular item handler that is slot-agnostic.
    • Colossal Chests
    • Integrated Tunnels
  • Wrench: For items that allow wrenching.
    • Charset
    • Ender IO
    • Forestry
    • IC2
  • Energy, Item and Fluid handlers from item entities and items inside item frames are delegated to the entity itself.
  • The Ingredients Components API, an abstraction layer for working with items, fluids and energy in a generic way.

Every aspect of this mod can be configured to disable interactions.


This mod is responsible for registering the capabilities from the Common Capabilities API, it also provides default implementations of these capabilities for various mods.


This mod collects anonymized startup data, this can be disabled in the config file and adheres to Minecraft's snooper settings.
