Are you sick of having to micromanage your farms in Minecraft? Do you want to continue harvesting animals while you’re off exploring? Thanks to MineFactory Reloaded’s automation tools, all of that is possible.
MineFactory Reloaded for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5 was built by popular modder TehKrush. However, the original MineFactory was the brainchild of Feanorith, who stopped updating the mod a little while ago. TehKrush took the mod over and expanded it, making it the mod we see today.
What can players do with MineFactory Reloaded? Basically, the mod gives you the ability to turn your Minecraft world into one big resource-producing factory. You can harvest milk continuously from your cows and channel the milk to a gigantic vat for storage. Or, you can place a fish farming tool in any body of water in order to farm fish.
The biggest addition to MineFactory Reloaded 1.6 is the ‘rancher’, which automatically harvests resources from the animals around it. Using MineFactory Reloaded, players can harvest resources from all sorts of different animals, including chicken, pigs, cows, and sheep. Simply pen the animals up, leave a rancher in their pen, and then watch the mod go to work. You can gather these resources by accessing the pen yourself, or you can simply connect your rancher with pipes and direct the resources to a different part of the map.
If you leave a rancher in a pen with animals, they will inevitably die. After all, animals only have so many resources to give you. If you don’t feel like milking your cows to death, then you’ll want to leave something called a ‘vet’ inside the pen. Simply add food to the vet and it will automatically heal the surrounding animals, giving you a perpetual supply of resources.
Rounding out the list of tools are a conveyer belt, rain collector, brick breaker and railway system, all of which make it easier to build factories in the Minecraft world. The railway system is particularly useful, as players can easily hop on the railway and travel to wherever they need to go. Simply walk within a three-block radius of a passing railway cart and it will automatically pick you up. Meanwhile, conveyer belts are a useful way to ferry animals and resources around your farm or factory.
The major benefit of using MineFactory Reloaded is that the player can be off exploring this entire time. Then, come back, check your farms, reload food into the vet, and continue on your merry way. Whether you’re collecting massive amounts of milk into a vat, or you just want to zip around the world in a railway cart, MineFactory Reloaded adds all sorts of cool automation features into the game.
