Mekanism mod 1.16.5/1.15.2 (high-tech machinery)

Crafting machines

  1. Create Infused Alloy (the basis of all Mekanism Machines), which is made in a Metallurgic Infuser using Redstone as the secondary material and Iron Ingots as the primary material.
  2. Start crafting Steel Casings, which are crafting components used to create most Mekanism machines.
  3. You can now create some of the basic machines, such as the Enrichment Chamber, Energized Smelter, Precision Sawmill, and Crusher.
  4. After that, you can start to work on ore processing by upgrading the basic machines into Factories.
  5. Move on to tier 2 processing (tripling resource output) by adding the Purification Chamber and Electrolytic Separator.
    1. Also, you now have the option to create some additional tools and armor that are obsidian and glowstone-based by using the Osmium Compressor.
  6. Now, you can decide to either move on to further ore processing tiers (such as quadrupling and pentapuling ore yields) or play with the toys and gadgets that Mekanism has to offer, such as the Digital Miner (a configurable, complex machine which can mine blocks beneath itself) or the Atomic Disassembler (Mekanism’s all-in-one mining tool, like the Paxel but instead of durability uses an electronic charge).

  3. Add turbine blades to the rotor. (two for each rotor shaft)
  4. Place a rotational complex on top of the rotor.
  5. Completely fill the interior layer around the rotational complex with pressure dispersers.
  6. Place electromagnetic coils above the dispersers. They must touch the rotational complex and each other.
  7. Build the frame (the perimeters of the walls) out of turbine casings. (you may have more empty layers above the coils to make room for more vents)
  8. Fill the walls, up to the height of the rotor, with turbine casings and/or structural glass and at least 2 turbine valves.
  9. Fill the remaining walls and ceiling with turbine casings and/or turbine vents.

Features

Compatability

Compatibility comes first. While Mekanism will run just fine alone, I have spent so very long adding in integration to make Mekanism seem like it blends in perfectly when you have other mods installed. Whether you are powering my machinery with EU, RF, MJ or whatever it is, they will work. IC2 and TE recipes are implemented in my respective machines, and just about everything else will work as well. I like to think of this as one of Mekanism’s best features.

Ore Processing


Ore processor capable of producing 4 ingots per ore

Mekanism features an extremely advanced, extensive ore processing system. From simple machines used to process ores into ingots electronically, to complex chemical-based ore injection used to gain four ingots for every ore mined, Mekanism covers basic smelting, as well as 2x, 3x, and 4x duplication. All machines have configurable input and eject sides, allowing you to have complete control over how you want to manage your machinery. Mekanism also features the Combiner, which allows you to recreate the ores you’ve already processed.

Factories


Elite Factory Interface

Mekanism introduces the concept of «factories,» which are multi-operation machines that can process multiple stacks of ores simultaneously. In a single machine, you can be smelting several stacks of ore into ingots, enriching several stacks of ores into dusts, or crushing several stacks of cobblestone into gravel. The Factories follow base Mekanism tiers, with the Basic Factories processing three stacks at once, the Advanced Factories processing five stacks at once, and the Elite Factories processing seven stacks at once. In other words, the Factory can be seen as seven machines in one in it’s elite tier.

Ores

All Mekanism ores have configurable spawn rates and disable options in the config (Mekanism.config). It’s pretty self-explanatory.

Mekanism is founded off the resource «Osmium» which generates pretty commonly at any Y level below 60. Osmium can be used to create tools and armor, but it is primarily used in the makings of machinery. If you have NEI, you’ll see that you really can’t do much without Osmium.

Mekanism also generates Tin and Copper, both of which can be easily disabled (and I’m assuming many people will since 99% of mods have their own form of tin and copper).

Armor and Tools

Mekanism brings five new sets of armor and tools to the table, as well as the ever-famed Paxel (an all-in-one tool).

However, as Mekanism is a «tech mod,» it has to have some cool techy gadgets. The Atomic Disassembler is an expensive, electronic multi-tool that can be set to mine at different speeds. The Walkie Talkie is a super fancy device that allows for SMP-based voice chat. Can’t forget the Jetpack and Scuba Mask/Tank combination.

Robit

The Robit is a cute little electronic robot that will follow you around and collect item drops for you. He also serves as a portable furnace, workbench, anvil, chest, and spirit lifter.

Mining

Mekanism introduces the «Digital Miner» — an automated mining machine that can sort through terrain and pick out the resources you specify. It uses a filter-based system, and will then go through the range you specify and mine the blocks it needs to.

Dynamic Tanks


Dynamic Tank setup

Dynamic Tanks are the best of both worlds: whatever is in between Multi-Tanks and Iron Tanks. These are multiblock tanks that can be shaped as any rectangular prism (capping at 18x18x18). Use Dynamic Glass, Dynamic Valve, and Dynamic Tank blocks to create a tank fit for you!

Transmitters

Mekanism features ways of transmitting items, fluids, gasses and energy from once place to another, devices we call «transmitters.» Transmitters all have some similar characteristics, and these are as follows:

  • Transmitters (excluding the Logistical Transporter) will not function when powered by a redstone signal.
  • All transmitters seamless work with Forge Multipart.
  • Excluding the Logistical Transporter which obviously behaves differently, transmitters hold buffers that are dependent upon how many transmitters are in the network. For example, if you have two Universal Cables connected together, your network will have a capacity of 20 KJ.
  • All transmitters look really cool.


All four Mekanism transmitters

Universal Cable

Capable of transferring, well, universal energy from one place to another. These guys are super fancy and can be configured on their sides to behave differently.

Logistical Transporters

Capable of transferring items and blocks from one place to another. These function identically to RedPower tubes, and have a fully-implemented color-coded sorting system.

Starting the Reaction

The Fusion Reactor will not start on its own. It requires an outside burst of energy from a charged Laser Amplifier and a small amount of D-T Fuel to begin the fusion process. Once the reaction is jump started, it will begin consuming supplied Deuterium and Tritium, creating plasma and generating power.

Initial Fuel

The Hohlraum stores 10 units of D-T Fuel required for the initial reaction. To fill it up, place it into a Chemical Infuser which is combining Deuterium and Tritium. Place the Hohlraum into the Reactor Controller when it contains the required D-T Fuel.

Ignition

The statistics tab details the required ignition temperature for the reaction to begin. To reach this temperature, a Laser Amplifier must be charged with energy from several Lasers feeding into it, and fired into the Laser Focus Matrix. The energy required to start the reaction can range from 600M RF — 800M RF. It must be injected in one big burst to prevent temperature from dissipating, so adding Redstone sensitivity or increasing the minimum energy required by the Amplifier will prevent it from firing prematurely.

With the Hohlraum in the Reactor Controller and enough energy stored in the Amplifier, fire the laser to begin the fusion reaction. If a high enough temperature was achieved, you should immediately see and hear the reactor running. To sustain the reaction, the temperature must not drop below the ignition temperature. Make sure the injection rate is high enough and fuel is constantly being supplied.

Usage

  • The MekaSuit like most rechargable Mekanism items has infinite durability, requiring Forge Energy to function instead.
    • Every time the player takes damage it uses up some of the electricity in the armor, evenly distributing the charge loss throughout all pieces at once.
    • The total charge remaining is shown both when hovering over the suit pieces in the inventory and as a green bar where armor points are usually displayed.
  • When worn, the MekaSuit Helmet brings up an Augmented Reality inspired UI within the player’s field of view. It displays the following information to the player:
    • Top Left: The remaining charge (as a percentage) of each currently worn armor piece.
    • Bottom Left: The current location coordinates (X,Y,Z) of the player, within a simple compass which shows orientation.
    • Bottom Right: The current status of modules installed. For example, it will display remaining jetpack hydrogen if the player has the Jetpack Unit installed, or how much food is remaining in the helmet if the Nutritional Injection Unit is installed.

The formula to calculate the energy used is DefaultUsage × EnergyMultiplier(2 × SpeedUpgrades-EnergyUpgrades)/8. DefaultUsage is the default energy used by a machine. EnergyMultiplier is a configurable multiplier that defaults to 10.

This table qualifies the rate of energy/speed efficiency with varying amounts of upgrades applied.

A Mekanism machine upgrade to make them process items faster, you can install 8 of these in each Mekanism machine. If you were to apply speed upgrades to a factory, the power consumption is accumulative. For example, if each operation were to cost 50J/t, a basic factory with 3 ongoing operations will cost 150J/t. HINT: Upgrade your power setup before upgrading your machines, as the power usage per tick begins to escalate with every speed upgrade applied, requiring more power to complete a single machine process.HINT: If you plan to use Speed Upgrades for a machine, it is advised to also install Energy Upgrades and Gas Upgrades if applicable.

Here’s a tables:

# of Speed Upgrades Speed Multiplier Time per Operation (20 ticks = 1 sec) Relative Speed Power Usage Total Power Usage for each Operation
1x 200 ticks 100% 50 J/t 10,000 J
1 1.33x 149 ticks 134.2% 88 J/t 13,112 J
2 1.78x 112 ticks 178.6% 158 J/t 17,696 J
3 2.37x 84 ticks 238.1% 281 J/t 23,604 J
4 3.16x 63 ticks 317.5% 500 J/t 31,500 J
5 4.22x 47 ticks 425.5% 889 J/t 41,783 J
6 5.62x 35 ticks 571.4% 1,580 J/t 55,300 J
7 7.5x 26 ticks 769.2% 2,810 J/t 73,060 J
8 10.0x 20 ticks 1000% 5,000 J/t 100,000 J

Note that every speed upgrade makes the machine 33% faster, and the Power Usage increases with ~77% (33²%), which makes for an increase in power usage for each operation with 33%

Customizing Your Configuration

Everything you need is in the Configuration Panel, pictured above. It may look intimidating at first, but for most installations you will only use a couple controls.

Common Controls

Auto Eject (4). This will tell your machine to automatically eject its output item, if there is a suitable inventory to receive it. If there is nothing to receive an item, the machine will hold onto its products. Mekanism machines will not spill your items all over the floor! 🙂 Clicking the A button will toggle the Auto-Eject function on/off.


Mekanism machine output configuration

Slot/Side Assignment (6). This is where you assign a specific colored slot to the sides of your machine. The image of six squares corresponds to each of the six sides. The gray box in the middle is the front, above that (red) is the top. To the left is the left side (orange), to the right is the right side (dark blue). Below the gray square is the bottom side (green), and in the lower left is the back side (also gray). Note that all sides are configured as if you were facing the machine, not from the machines point of view. You can change which slot connects to which side by clicking on the appropriate side. As you click, you will cycle through all available colors. Not all colors will be a valid slot color. So if you wanted to configure your machine like in the example with the top as the input (red) and the right and back sides as outputs (blue), the top and right are already set up, you only need to click the gray box in the lower left a few times until the dark blue color is selected. Done! It really is that easy. Gray is the «no connection» color.

Advanced Controls
Looking to really customize your system? Read on!

  • Output Color Frame(3). This will set a colored «frame» around items as they exit the machine. In the example above, all ejected items will have a green frame. Mekanism Logistics Pipes will use this frame color to route the items to a matching-colored destination. If no destination has a matching color, the first available destination inventory will receive the item.
  • Input Filter on/off(5). This turns on/off the input filter feature for the machine. If turned on, then machine will only accept items whose color frames match the input filters. If the colors don’t match the filter… they will not be accepted. You can set the input color filters by using…
  • Input Color Filters(2). Like the output configuration (6), each of these squares corresponds with a side of the machine. If a color is set for one of these squares, that side will only accept items if they have a matching color frame. So if you want to be sure that coal goes to the Enrichment Chamber and not the Crusher, set a color filter on the output of the machine that ejects the coal, then set a matching color input filter of your Enrichment Chamber. Magic!

Miscellaneous Notes

  • Compatible with oredict steam from other mods such as TE/TF/RC/MFR/Big Reactors.
  • The marking of «Limiting» on the vents stat simply means that it is not «optimal ratio». You can have fewer down to your desired steam flow rate.
  • Turbine shuts down if internal battery fills with energy. It will restart automatically though you may also vent excess steam to prevent it from shutting down.
  • A 5x5x8 turbine design will produce the exact same RF/t as the highest tiered turbine from Big Reactors with the same amount of steam.
  • Exact formula to calculate the flowrate of your turbine — understanding is not necessary. Just fill the values and perform the commands:

Upgrades

  • Each MekaSuit armor piece supports a variety of different upgrades which give the user various benefits and abilities. Some of these are unique to armor pieces and cannot be installed on other armor pieces. Upgrades are installed using Modules at the Modification Station.
  • Once installed, upgrades can be removed and, if the upgrade is not unique, can be reinstalled on other armor pieces by uninstalling it at a Modification Station and putting it on another armor piece as normal.
  • Each armor piece can have several modules of the same type installed to it depending on the module type, in some cases up to 8. In this case each additional upgrade will improve the ability/effectiveness of the module upgrade.
  • Each module can be uninstalled individually just like machine Upgrades.
  • Modules can be toggled through their various modes if they have more than 1 using the appropriate corresponding armor mode switch key.

Construction Notes

  • Orientation can only be vertical (Unlike BR’s turbine)
  • Length and Width (x,z) must be equal.
  • Maximum shaft height = min(2xLENGTH-5,14)
  • Maximum total height = min(2xLENGTH-1,18)
  • Tank volume = LENGTH^2xROTOR_HEIGHTx64,000mB
  • Flow rate is determined by tank volume (exact formula inside notes) and vents — whichever is less. Each vent adds 16,000mB/t of flow rate.
  • Energy production = FLOWxROTOR_HEIGHTx50RF/7
  • Because a taller rotor leaves less room for vents, sometimes heightening the rotor could reduce flow and, therefore, energy.
  • 1 coil will support 4 blades. You’ll never need more than 7 coils.
  • Interior may ONLY be dispersers, coils, shaft, blades, rotational complex, or air.
  • Multiblock will sparkle red on final block placement, otherwise check your assembly.
  • Minimal turbine size is 5×5 base with 5 blocks high.
  • Maximum turbine size is 17×17 base with 18 blocks high.
