Items and Recipes

Governor

Steam governor recipe

The governor is a device used to control the flow of steam in steam-powered machines. It is an essential piece of each steam-powered machine crafting recipe. In NORMAL recipe mode, the governor is made from sticks, brass ingots, and iron nuggets. In TECH_PROGRESSION recipe mode, you will need to first craft sprockets and steel and brass bars to make a governor. In APOCALYPCTIC recipe mode, you must either salvage the governor from another machine or craft it using sprockets, brass bars, brass ingots, and sticks.

Black-Powder Musket

The black-powder musket uses black-powder cartridges for ammunition. A cartridge can be crafted from paper, gunpowder, and a lead nugget. Simply having a stack of cartridges in your inventory will allow you to load your musket.

To load the musket, you must hold right-click for several seconds until you hear the mechanism click (consuming a black-powder cartridge in the process). Once loaded, you aim the gun like a bow and fire! Deals 10 hearts of damage (configurable), making it a one-hit kill against most monsters. The musket can be enchanted on an enchantment table.

Recipes for steam-powered machines

Steam Pipes

Steam pipe recipe

Steam pipes connect together steam-powered machines, allowing a boiler to supply steam to the other machines. Note that the Power Advantage API makes every machine that uses a type of power also conduct that power type, so you don’t need steam pipes if your machines are all adjacent to each other.

Coal-Fired Steam Boiler

Steam boiler GUI

The coal-fired steam boiler burns coal (or any other flammable item) to generate steam to power machines. You will need to fill the water reservoir by connecting it (via fluid pipes) to a water source or with buckets of water. Note that the steam pressure gauge will not increase if another machine (including a steam tank) is consuming all of the steam produced by the boiler.

Steam Tank

Example setup of steam machines

The steam tank stores steam pressure and meters it out to machines that need steam power.

Steam-Powered Rock Crusher

Steam-powered rock crusher

The rock crusher breaks blocks and items just like a crack hammer. There are 5 output inventory slots, so you can feed-in all of your ores from a hopper without clogging the machine. Place a hopper underneath to collect your crushed blocks.

Steam-Powered Blast Furnace

Blast furnace

The blast furnace can be used like a normal furnace, smelting three items at a time with a combined smelting rate on par with a standard furnace. However, to reach optimal smelting temperature, you will need to provide steam power as well as fuel. Then the temperature gauge will go all the way into the red and your items will cook very quickly.

Steam-Powered Drill

The steam-powered drill drills into blocks up to 64 blocks away, collecting the blocks in this machine’s internal inventory. Use an item conveyor to pull items out for more efficient mining.

Note that the large drill-bit used by the drill is dangerous and will hurt anyone who bumps into it.

Steam Track

The steam track is made by combining a steel frame with a steam pipe. When the steam-powered drill hit the maximum range on its drill bit (or hits bedrock), it will automatically move into the position of an adjacent steam track block, placing a steam pipe in its previous position and a steel frame in the drill hole. Thus you can recover materials to recreate the steam track.

Steam-Powered Elevator

The steam-powered elevator uses steam to extend upwards when it is given a redstone signal. It always moves to a pisition 2 blocks short of the ceiling (to a max range of 16 blocks), carrying anyone standing on the elevator with it.
