Camshaft: Uses rotation to move something up & down. Crafted: 2 steel gears, 1 iron pole. Wrench as tool.
Piston: Fully functional piston device. Crafted: 1 Camshaft, 1 Piston Head, 1 Piston Casing, 1 iron pole. Screwdriver as tool.
Pipes can be placed, and link up to vacuums allowing air to be moved into objects.
1 Item processed using a vacuum or 1 block
Vacuums will also be able to get air without crafting anything, via placing a pipe in front of it. Keep in mind this will prevent it from being able to craft anything.
Vacuums can also extract water from water blocks. This allows an infinite supply of water in pipes, but not for crafting. Also it requires the vacuum to be connected with a pipe in the front and the pipe directly above a top side block of a 3x3x3 pool of water cubes. This of course only works if the vacuum has power, so its not exactly "Free" water.
V4 Internal Combustion Engine: Uses a small amount of energy and gasoline to make a good amount of power. Crafted: 4 pistons, 4 copper wires, 2 refined steel. Wrench as tool.
Produces 500 Energy per 1 gasoline and 1 air.
V8 Internal Combustion Engine: Uses a medium amount of energy and gasoline to make a large amount of power. Crafted: 8 pistons, 8 copper wires, 4 refined steel. Wrench as tool.
OR Crafted: 1 V4 Internal Combustion Engine, 4 pistons, 4 copper wires, and 2 refined steel with the Wrench as the tool.
Produces 1000 Energy per 2 gasoline and 2 air. (Takes less time than a V4)
V4 and V8 Combustion engines will get hotter over time. Each combustion increases the heat by 20 Degrees C.
Placing water nearby or having a pipe with water next to it can cool it down by 20 Degrees C, but after 4 times it will be turned into a cloud block. (or with the pipe it will turn into steam.) which will not cool the combustion engine down. In addition if a fuel-accepting machine runs a block next to them (Other Engines, Forges, Steam Engines, Extractors, Etc.) They will increase heat by 20 Degrees C every 1 item that is burned. If the temperature reaches 200 Degrees C the Combustion Engine will stop working, and to repair it you need to craft it with 2-4 Pistons and 2-4 Wires With a Wrench as the tool, depending on if its a V4 Or a V8 Engine.
Steam engines can have steam pumped into them, but will not accept cloud blocks. (Cloud blocks could be considered "Cooled Off", thus not producing anything.)
This means you could use the left-over heat from a Combustion Engine to get more power Via Steam Engine.
Boiler: Accepts water and power to make steam. (Not Cloud Blocks) This can be taken out by pipes. Can be used to automate Steam Engines. Crafted: 1 Stainless Steel, 1 Pipe, 1 Forge. Wrench as tool.
Office Lamps and House Lamps can be crafted with Light Bulbs to make versions that require power. They will emit much more light too. Requires 1 power every minute to light.
Lithium: Light-Cyan crystal block found semi-rarely in Mines.
Lithium-Ion Battery: 2 Lithium, 1 Sulfur, 2 vulcanized rubber. Steel Hammer as tool. Stores 500 energy instead of 100.
Pump-jack: A pump-jack is a special type of vacuum that is able to and only able to pump oil into pipes. It is actually a type of multi-Block that requires to placed down parts. It also requires the Oil Pump to be directly above a 1x1x10 (10 deep) line of oil.
Oil Pump: The part touching the oil blocks, actually extracts the oil. Crafted: 1 piston, 10 iron poles, 2 refined steel. Wrench as tool.
Pump-jack Engine: Powers the Oil Pump, allows the oil to be extracted via pipe. Crafted: 1 Camshaft, 1 Electric Motor, 2 Stainless Steel, 1 Vacuum. Screwdriver as tool. Uses 50 energy every oil block.
Because of the large amount of parts, oil, and energy required, its recommended you get a large amount of energy production first before looking into Pump-Jacks. But once you do oil will not be needed to be mined again.
Oil Refinery: Used to make oil-products. Crafted: 1 Extractor, 1 Boiler, 1 Electric Motor, 1 Lithium-Ion Battery. Screwdriver as tool. Requires power to use.
The oil refinery takes oil and electricity. It will then produce 1 butane, 1 gasoline, 1 lubricant oil, and 1 asphalt. It takes 500 energy to do this.
Asphalt: When used instead of Oil in a road block's recipe it gives you 8 of that block instead of 1, when used instead of black dye and stone in Dark Brick recipe it also gives you 8 instead of 1.
Butane: Putting Butane works as a fuel source in extractors and distilleries, but burning twice as long as oil does. It can also be used to make Rubber (As a reference to synthetic rubber) by putting it in a distillery.
Gasoline: Fuel used in Internal Combustion Engines. Can also be used in extractors and distilleries, lasting 4 Times longer than oil.
Lubricant Oil: Used as a crafting recipe for other items, and can be used in place of Varnish.
Oil Refineries can also have oil pumped into them via pipes. This allows automation of Oil Refineries.
Electrical Forge: Requires power instead of fuel. Crafted: 1 forge, 2 stainless steel 1 Lithium-Ion Battery. Screwdriver as tool. Uses 100 Energy per Item.
Air Conditioner: Uses power to cool down Internal Combustion Engines. Crafted: 1 rotor blade, 1 fridge, 1 stainless steel, 2 copper wires. Requires air to be piped in from a vacuum. Uses 10 power to cool 20 Degrees C.
Electric Lamps also use 1 power per minute. (Not mentioned Previously.)
