About the mod... And the bugs...

Actually, I am too busy to update the mod in the past few month... And as you can see, Tinker I/O has lots of bug.

Because there are too many issue cause by my wrong implementation of Forge API, I decided to rewrite the mod. Maybe it will spent me about a month to finish it...

So... The rewrite version of Tinker I/O is almost there! The first version of Tinker I/O RW will be tinker_io-1.12.2-rw2.7.0It is not compatible with the old version of Tinker I/O. DO NOT UPGRADE TO THE RW VERSION if the map was already installed the old version of Tinker I/O.

Help us improve the description

I created a wiki in Github. It is fine for everyone to go to the wiki page and help us improve the introduction.

The introduction of Tinker I/O in Forge 1.10.2

 (Tinker I/O version : release 2.4.1)


Tinker I/O is an addon for Tinkers’ Construct. The addon added some blocks and items to extend the function of TConstruct Smeltery.


New Blocks

1. Fuel Input Machine

Fuel Input Machine is a machine which is able to filliing any burnable items into the Smeltery. By filling fuel into the smeltery, the temperature and speed of the Smeltery will be increased. For some items which contain higher fuel value, the smeltery can operation even faster.


Fuel Input Machine can be located any where of the smeltery structure.



2. Smart Output

Smart Output is a machine designed to replace Casting Table and Basin.




3. Stirling Engine

Stirling Engine is a RF generator added byTinker I/O. The Engine must be placed above TConstruct's tank to work properly. The efficiency of Stirling Engine is determined by the temperature of the liquid.


4. Ore Crusher

Ore Crusher can curshed ores into Crushed Ore. Crushed Ore and Ore Dust is not the same. Thus, it can’t be burned in vanilla furnance. Instead, you have smelt Crushed Ore into Pure Metal by Smeltery. And you can only use Smart Output to cast Pure Metal into ingot.




5. What a beautiful block

Just a material for crafting. Isn’t it beautiful?



New Item

1. Solid Fuel

Solid Fuel is a item which is able to burning in vanilla furnance. Filling Solid Fuel into Fuel Input Machine can produce high temperatures and speed up the Smeltery.


2. Base Upgrade

Base Upgrade is the baisc item to make other upgrades of Tinker I/O.


3. Slot Upgrade I~IV

You can use Slot Upgrade to increase the output slot size of Smart Output.


In Smart Output

Each Slot Upgrade I can increase 1 output slot.

Each Slot Upgrade II can increase 2 output slot.

Each Slot Upgrade III can increase 3 output slot.

Each Slot Upgrade IV can increase 4 output slot.


4. Fortune Upgrade

Fortune Upgrade can increase 30% triplication rate of Ore Crusher.


5.Redstone Upgrade

Using Redstone Upgrade, Smart Output can be control by redstone signal.


6. Speed Upgrade

Speed upgrades can be placed in Ore Crusher and Fuel Input Machine.


7. Basin Upgrade

The upgrade can enable the Basin Casting mode of Smart Output.



8. Crushed Ore

Crushed Ore and Ore Dust is not the same. (Thus, it will NEVER added into Ore Dictionary). You have to smelt Crushed Ore into Pure Metal by the Smeltery. And you can only use Smart Output to cast Pure Metal into ingot.






The function of Tinker I/O in 1.7.10

Fuel Input Machine

Tinker I/O adds an item called “Solid Fuel”. Put the Fuel Input Machine next to close to the Smeltery Controller, and you can use this machine to put the Solid Fuel into the Smeltery Controller. As long as you collocate with “Speed Upgrade”, you can transform metals into the form of liquid immediately.


Smart Output

Smart Output can be used to replace Casting Table. Its output speed is faster than Casting Table. Collocating with the Fuel Input Machine, thus, it becomes a faster and cheaper mineral processing system.
