Advanced Machinery v5

This addon adds 30+ new machines: sieve, lava generator, combustion generator, power core, void miner, solar panel, and mechanical furnace, and more. The energy in this addon is called RF (redstone flux) and it is transferred to and from machines wirelessly by the power core. The power core can hold up to 100,000 RF and it automatically collects and sends it to machines without needing wires.

Important Info

  • This is for version 1.17.10+, it might work on other versions but I havent tested them.
  • The power core is needed for every machine that uses energy and controls the power of machines within 30 blocks.
  • Multiple power cores should be able to work in your world, but you should only need 1 per 30 blocks.
  • All machines that receive an input can be interacted by right clicking or tapping on them with a specific item. They can also receive item input from items above it, but if it is busy then the items above it will be deleted.
  • Does not use player.json file, compatible with any addon
  • More Machines coming soon, recommend machines I should add in the comments, on my discord, or on my youtube.

ty for removing lag

After the newest update, conveyors are moving items faster. My items now move so fast that machines can't interact with the blocks on the conveyor (crusher not crushing cobblestone, matter converter not changing sand to soul sand, mechanical furnace not smelting ores).
use the ones from Basic Machinery to solve this
What does an energy ingot do?
both the sieve and auto sieve look like its own file and when there are like 75+ entities it slows down mc but its is amazing!
AMAZING ADDON! Your one of the best addon creators i have seen vatonage, Nice Work!
I have used looked at all of your addons and you have A LOT! and have seen your "modpacks" but the problem is that they arent really modpacks there just worlds with a bunch of addons in a specific order so the game can process the addons correctly and the other modpacks are just a list of addons that you suggest to add, so i was just wondering (if its possible) if you could create an actual modpack where its one addon but that one addon is many addons combined such as the Minesanity addon/modpack which includes some of your addons but that modpack is a bit large for most devices and honestly i would like to see a "modpack" for your addons and suggested addons, but if you cant, dont want to, or dont have the time to no problem.
Hiiii, can i use this addon to create a map and Upload it?
I would give credits to the creator of the addon.
I hope that is not offencive to ask this but i can't find nothing on Google
its a bit laggy idk
This is more of a bug report the smelter can smelt most things only ores
Can you remove the particle that solar panel produce cause it make me so lagg
Has your character/skin moved at normal speed? Do entities become unusually slow, including dropped items?

If so to both, that could happen to me too while playing on Skyfactory v4.
that happens sometimes
Chunk loader is not working for me since the latest update. I no longer receive message "x/5 chunks loaded" when interacting, but still receive "Chunk loader disabled" message when interacting. Was working fine until update 1.17.34
hi! does it work for 1.17.30?
THe passive should cost more RF then the hostile.
Great mod! Just one machine i want to recommend though, and that's an auto crafter (for example, you shift click it with the item you want to auto craft then connect a hopper/drop items on the machine to auto craft it). Thanks!
