Compressed Factory Mod 1.12.2 is a space managing mod where you can compress space and have a whole 11x11x11 room of space out of a 3x3x3 cube.You can utilize a lot of space using a much smaller amount.

Compressed Factory Mod

Specifically the smallest sized compressor is a 3x3x3 hollow cube (no block inside of cube) that has a 11x11x11 room/factory inside, and the largest sized compressor is a 15x15x15 triple layer hollow cube that has a 47x47x47 room/factory inside. After compressing the space inside of the compressor, you can enter the compressed space through a teleporter block in the multiblock structure. The compressor needs at least 1 controller block, 1 teleporter and the casing blocks for the structure. And you can make compressors inside of other compressors, for a maximum 3 levels of compressorception (compressor in compressor in compressor in the world).

Features:

  • You can create the factory/room and delete a factory.
  • The structure does not need to be a cube, it can be a 5x3x3 compressor, which makes a 23x11x11 rectangular, tunnel like factory, so you can extend or reduce the factory size and make its shape according to your needs. (compressor and factory can only have a rectangular shape, but its size changes)
  • It has 2 item buffer blocks, that a provide a way of transportation for items to and from the factory.
  • It has 1 energy buffer block that provides a way of transportation of energy to and from the factory. The energy buffer block is upgradable. Right click it with certain items or blocks to upgrade, 5 redstone blocks for lvl 2 and 9 redstone blocks for lvl 3, 5 diamonds for level 4 and 1 diamond block for level 5, the last level. (quantity of items/blocks for upgrade can be changed in config) (stats of the blocks like energy capacity and such are all configurable in config file)
  • The factory stays chunkloaded by default and you can turn the factory on and off. When the factory is turned off then you can’t enter the factory, the factory stops being chunkloaded and the buffer blocks that might exist stop working, so you are effectively shutting the factory off. (Chunkloading can be disable in config, so servers dont explode)
  • It has a config file capable of configuring the stats of the item and energy buffer blocks and more.
  • Energy can be made a requirement for compressing the space or/and maintaining said compression. (through the config file)
  • Some help making the structure through chat messages.
  • Automatic factory illumination. (You have to right click the teleporter inside the factory with any item to light the factory up, so 99% automatic xD, this fixes the lighting glitches)
  • Quick factory travelling. You can walk between factories of the same level of compression by right clicking those suspicious blocks in the factory (glass or different stone blocks, depends on config) with a pickaxe to break them and you can only break them if you were the one creating the factory, so other players can’t break in from the outside. If you have 2 bases and a compressor in both bases, you can teleport inside one compressor, travel inside the dimension to the factory of the compressor in another base and teleport out to the other base. (to rebuild the wall just remake the factory, by for example right clicking the controller with shears) (all this feature is optional in config)
  • There is an option in the config that lets you change the scale of the factory that is made in relation to the size of the compressor, so for example, now you can change the size of the factory made with a 3x3x3 compressor from 11x11x11 to for example 5x5x5 or 15x15x15.
  • The controller changes texture to show if he is on or off.

A way to change the texture of the casing block in-game, a dye of sorts, so the compressor can fit in nicer! Hurray!

How to use:

Getting Started

  • The compressor is a multiblock structure that is hollow. The Compressor size can range from 3x3x3 to 15x15x15. The size ratio from compressor to factory inside of it diminishs the bigger the compressor / amount of space being compressed is. Also the bigger the amount of space being compressed is the more layers of blocks between outside and inside the compressor needs.
  • When trying to figure out the amount of layers or the size of the compressor you want, always think of it in terms of the size of space you want to compress.
  • Visualizing it in terms of size of space you want to compress (hollow space/cube of air inside of compressor) -> size of room inside:
  • Layer number: Size of hollow space inside compressor -> size of room inside
    • 1 layer: 1 -> 11(3x3x3 compressor with a 1x1x1 hollow space inside does a 11x11x11 room/factory), 2 -> 17, 3 -> 23, 4 -> 27
    • 2 layers: 5 -> 31, 6 -> 35, 7 -> 39
    • 3 layers: 8 -> 43, 9 -> 47

Factory Creation

  • To create a factory you make a multiblock struture, the compressor, made of casing blocks, at least 1 controller and at least 1 teleporter (and at least 1 energy outlet if energy is needed for space compression). Then after the compressor is made you right click the controller with a stick. And that’s is it!
  • If everything went well you can now right click the teleporter empty handed and you should go inside the compressor. If the room is dark or has some lighting bugs (working on fix) put some torches around.
  • If not everything went well you should have some messages in chat that should be useful in pointing out the problem.

Notes:

  • Deleting a factory, by the means of breaking the compressor or right clicking it with a paper item etc, never destroys the blocks you had in that factory, it just makes the factory available for compressors to take.
  • Don’t make the multiblock strutures or compressors next to another one, he will try to consider them all 1 big compressor and big mess might happen.
  • Destroying any block of the compressor after the factory is created will delete the factory, so you can just break the blocks of the compressor to make it bigger and right click the controller with a stick to create the factory again.
  • And thats pretty much it. All that is left to say is, you right click the controller with a shear to rebuild the factory (including the door), you right click the controller with a paper to delete the factory manually, you right click the controller empty handed to know the status (on or off) and you right click the controller with a stick (after the factory is created) to turn the factory on and off.
