What is Tubes?

Tubes aims to provide the best item transport and sorting solution using the awesome Forge Multipart API

These tubes work somewhat like the pneumatic tubes in RedPower, but there are many more types of tubes for all sorts of uses.

Mod Features:

  • Item Transport: Items in tubes seek the shortest path to an inventory and items cannot be accidentally dropped!
  • Tube Coloring: Tubes can be colored by clicking them with dyes. Different colored tubes wont connect to each other. Colors can be cleared by clicking on them with a water container (eg. water bucket, water bottle)
  • Ghost item filters: Don’t waste your items in filters, all filter slots in tubes use ghost items. Left click to decrease, Right click to increase, hold shift to increase/decrease by 10
  • NEI Drag and Drop Integration: If you have NEI installed, you can drag from the items list into a filter slot to set its even when in recipe mode!

Mod Contents:

To start making tubes, you are going to need plastic. The most basic way to get plastic is as follows:

Tubes Mod

First combine sand, clay, and coal/charcoal to get pellets

Tubes Mod

Smelt the plastic pellets to get plastic sheets

Tubes Mod

Finally combine 2 plastic and 1 glass like above to get 8 tubes

If you want more plastic pellets, you can use this method to produce 32 tubes worth of plastic at a time:

Tubes Mod

Smelt a bucket of milk to get milk curd.

Tubes Mod

Combine that milk curd with coal/charcoal, gunpowder, and 1 bucket’s worth of water (can use forestry cans and other containers like it) to get 8 plastic pellets.

BuildCraft Users:

You can refine fuel into liquid plastic using the refinery. You get 1 bucket of liquid plastic for 1 bucket of fuel

Tubes Mod
