The ever popular explosive combination returns. Handle with care. Will explode if jarred or lit on fire. Great for parties. Can be used as a substitute for cannonballs or fireworks in a pinch. Fuse length can be adjust with a string. Fuse length is measured in 1/20ths of a second.
The TNT will be lit if it passes over a Priming Rail.
Tired of mining by hand? You've come to the right place. The Bore can do it for you! Capable of drilling a 3x3 tunnel in whichever direction you point it. It is powered by your choice of fuel and can fill low spots with gravel to even the grade. Replacement drill heads are sold separately.
- It takes 9 seconds on average to carve out a 3x3 layer of stone. Less if there is softer materials like dirt or air. Obsidian takes a very long time.
- In 10 minutes the Bore can carve a tunnel 64 tiles long. In 30 minutes, the Bore will pass beyond the chunk boundary if you remain at the starting point.
- The Bore may stop digging for several reasons:
- Out of fuel.
- No Bore Head, or the Bore Head broke.
- Out of rails.
- Out of gravel or extremely deep hole encountered.
- Water flooding the tunnel.
- Dangerous increase in temperature detected underground. Lava suspected. The Bore will not dig out a layer if it believes there is lava behind that layer. Lava will destroy the Bore, be careful.
- A block was encountered that is not on the list of mineable blocks. Block IDs can be added to the mineable block list via the config file. Ores added via the Forge Ore Dictionary are automatically added to the list.
- Bore Heads have durability and can be repaired using the vanilla repair recipes.
- An Iron Bore Head can bore 1500 blocks before breaking. This is enough to dig a tunnel more than 160 tiles long. Cannot mine Obsidian.
- A Diamond Bore Head can bore 6000 blocks before breaking and can mine Obsidian. This is enough to dig a tunnel nearly 700 tiles long. You'll run out of rails before the head breaks. The Bore can only hold 576 rails at a time. Three diamond pickaxes can only mine about 4500 blocks.
- Can be powered by any fuel that burns in a Furnace.
- One piece of Coal or Charcoal will power the Bore for 10 seconds. A stack for 10 minutes. If filled full of Coal, the Bore can run for 70 minutes without user interaction.
- Lava is a valid fuel and one bucket will power the Bore for 2 minutes. Can hold 7 buckets at a time. Leaves behind an empty bucket.
- Coal Coke, the fuel of choice, will double the return rate of your Coal and lasts for 20 seconds per piece.
- When faced with a low spot, the Bore will attempt to fill it with gravel.
- The drill can hold 9 stacks of gravel.
- The Bore will only attempt to fill holes less than 10 blocks deep. Ravines will bring it to a stop.
- The Bore can hold 576 rails at a time.
- The Bore can place any vanilla or Railcraft rail, though most special rails will interfere with the Bore's operation. Normal Rails, plain Speed Rails, or plain Wooden Rails are recommended.
- The Bore will stop if it runs out of rails.
The bore can't currently be built in the latest tekkit build, this is because the blast furnace hasn't been implemented yet. Fixed as of 3.1.1, the iron ingots in these pictures must be steel ingots(iron ingots that have been placed in a Blast Furnace)
Carts listed here can be integrated into Industrialcraft 2 or Buildcraft to help in automation.
The Energy Cart is used to store and transport IndustrialCraft2 Energy Units via rail. Its particularly handy for providing a mobile charging station for your Mining Drill while mining, but also makes for a convenient way to transport moderate amounts of power between distant bases. In the GUI, the top slot is the charging slot and the bottom slot is the power source slot. The cart can also be charged from Energy Loader, and discharge via an Energy Unloader.
This is basically just a cart with a crafting table in it. Not super useful, but maybe when you're working on a railroad...
This is a World Anchor put into a minecart. You can attatch it to your Tunnel Bore with a crowbar to keep it going when no one is in that chunk.
