What Additional Buildcraft Objects does?

It provide some additional pipes and objects for buildcraft.

Objects added:

Valve Pipe

Show Spoiler
It works like a wooden pipe, but with integrated redstone engine. Also allows to add the lever directly on top.

But it has one limitation (by design!) it only allows straight connections, no bending!

It also allows to push out liquid:


  • WoodenWaterproofPipe Lever WoodenWaterproofPipe
Golden Iron Waterproof Pipe
Show Spoiler
It acts like an iron pipe, but has golden pipe speed, so you dont reduce the golden pipe water pressure


  • GoldenWaterproofPipe IronWaterproofPipe
Balance Pipe (idea by Oxygene13)

Show Spoiler
Balances liquid of connected tanks


  • WoodenWaterproofPipe IronOrGate WoodenWaterproofPipe


A 3×3 Iron Engine powerplant cooled by one single pump, with water triggered automatic on/off: (using balance pipes, valve and flowmeter)

The only way to stop this powerplant is to cut off its water and wait until the tanks are empty

Round Robin Items Pipe

Show Spoiler
It works like a stone pipe, but does round robin sorting.

Each output will be used once in a round robin way.


  • StoneTransportPipe Gravel
Diamond Liquid Pipe

Show Spoiler
Like the Diamond Items Pipe but for sorting liquids


  • Diamond PipeWaterproof
Compactor Pipe

Show Spoiler
Combines items(tacks) to larger itemstacks (currently to itemstacks >= 16 items)

Neds to be powered with redstone. also has an underrun detection (if no item comes in a specific time, the small itemstack is ejected)


  • StoneTransportPipe Piston
Insertion Transport Pipe

Show Spoiler
Insertion Pipes given the choice between putting a item in the pipe in to an inventory (A chest or a furnace) and passing it along to another pipe, the Insertion Pipe will always try to add the item to the inventory.

This pipe is very useful for feedback loops as it forces the item to go in to the last machine if it can.


  • StoneTransportPipe Redstone
Extraction Transport Pipe

Show Spoiler
Extraction Pipe is the opposite of the Insertion Pipe. If the pipe can choose between an inventory and another pipe the pipe will always go with the next pipe. Also this pipe behaves the same as a wood pipe where it will pull items out of an inventory if the pipe has an active redstone engine applied to it.

This pipe is useful for tight spaces where you do not want a pipe to accidentally fill a chest or machine.


  • StoneTransportPipe Planks
Bounce Transport Pipe

Show Spoiler
This pipe will cause whatever enters the pipe to come back out the way it came unless the pipe is powered by redstone, then it behaves as a normal pipe.


  • StoneTransportPipe Cobblestone
Crossover Transport Pipe

Show Spoiler
This pipe will direct material entering it to the pipe (or something accepting material, like chests) directly across from it. If no such pipe exists, a random direction is chosen.


  • StoneTransportPipe IronTransportPipe
Power Switch Pipe

Show Spoiler
Works as transistor for the power pipes. You can/have to power it with redstone to allow power flowing through it. Also allows to add the lever directly on top.


  • GoldenConductivePipe Lever
Show Spoiler
Iron Power Pipe

Acts as a diode/iron pipe for power pipes


  • IronTransportPipe Redstone

Notes: For those, who want to use a continues-power model (so you don’t have to toggle the redstone current for valve etc all the time like “old” buildcraft), should set

# set to true for allowing machines to be driven by continuous current


# set to true for allowing machines to be driven by continuous current

in your buildcraft config
