And now I have made a complete overhaul of the thing. The config file allows you to disable MFR rubber trees in worldgen in case you prefer IC2 rubber trees.Once you have raw rubber, smelt it once to get rubber bars, and then again to get plastic: (Top: IC2 rubberballs, bottom: MFR rubberbars) Then, take your raw plastic and craft it into plastic sheets: Finally, make machine blocks: And a hammer: You'll need it to rotate machines.
You can disable this if you wish in powercrystals/core/1.1.8 build 9 for Minecraft 1.6.4 1.1.7 build 7 for Minecraft 1.6.2 Make sure you get the correct one for your Minecraft version. Built against 871 (for 1.6.2), may not work with earlier versions.
In particular, all mods built on this now have update notification!
If you're thinking "haven't I seen this somewhere else", well, you probably have.
The original Mine Factory dates back to beta 1.4 (if not 1.3, I forget).
Place plants in the planter, and it will plant them. The planter GUI looks like this: If you do not set anything in the Filter slots, it will plant whatever wherever.
It understands every vanilla plant, from wheat to carrots to trees to cocoa, as well as IC2 rubber trees, RP2 rubber trees and flax, Extra Biomes XL trees, and everything from Pam's Harvest Craft except apple trees. If you do set a filter, it will divide its area into 9 segments (matching the colors on top of the planter) and will put only that plant in that segment.From left to right, the four bars at the right are: Several have specialized GUIs, and their individual entries will describe that.All machines can be broken by hand; you don't even need a pick.Instead, you can make milk bottles: There is the ability to smelt sugar into sugar charcoal: Weaker than standard charcoal, but easy to come by.Some machines accept upgrades: There are numerous upgrade tiers, all crafted like this but with the top material changed (to gold, bronze, silver, diamonds, etc). Machines with upgrade slots will have a single slot with a 'ghosted' upgrade spite in it. Most machines will look like this: Some may not have an inventory or a liquid storage bar.The default settings are intended to cover large oak trees, but can be adjusted in the config.
