Compact Machines

Compact Machines

Adds one simple game mechanic: Small rooms inside of blocks. It basically gives you the ability to build your contraptions inside of a single block.

Each side of a Compact Machine has a small buffer for items, fluids and Redstone Flux allowing the room to interact with the outside. Applied Energistics channels and ProjectRed bundled cables are supported as well. The room has the corresponding counterparts on its walls.

Your first room

  • Craft yourself a compact machine
  • Right click it with a "Personal Shrinking Device"
  • Use the interfaces in the walls to access the buffers
  • Right click again to leave the block.

Personal Shrinking Device

Required to enter/leave a block. Don't lose yours while you are working inside of a machine or you might get trapped.

Quantum Entangler

Use it to link two machines to the same room. They share the same content and buffers. Both machines must be upgraded with a netherstar and must be of the same size. You cannot entangle two used machines, i.e. the target machine must never have been entered before.
