Tubes Mod 1.7.10

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

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

Features Tubes Mod:

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!

Getting Started

To start making tubes, you are going to need plastic. The most basic way to get plastic is as follows:
Posted Image
Smelt a bucket of milk to get milk curd.

Posted Image
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 2 plastic pellets.

Posted Image
Smelt the plastic pellets to get plastic sheets

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

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

Restriction Tube:

Can be colored

Ejection Tube:
Has a forced open direction. Items will be ejected out of the open side.
Can be colored. Can be rotated with a BuildCraft compatible wrench
Posted Image

Filter Tube:
Can precisely control what items can enter it
Posted Image

Compressor Tube:
Compresses items that pass through it to specific stack sizes.
Useful for reducing lag.
Posted Image

Extraction tube:
Pulls items out of inventories at a rate of 1 stack per 10 ticks
Can be disabled by applying a redstone signal
Can be colored. Can be rotated with a BuildCraft compatible wrench
Posted Image

Requesting tube:
A combination of an extraction tube and filter tube, can pull from inventories both adjacent, and remote
It will also pull the exact amount of an item specified in its filter.
Can be rotated with a BuildCraft compatible wrench
Posted Image

Routing tube:
This tube allows you to choose what destination an item will have.
When deciding the path for an item to take, the shortest valid path will still be chosen.
