Series 9.7

Version 9.7.0.0 -(09-08-15)

  • NEW: Steam Locomotives can now pull fuel and water from attached carts.
  • NEW: Rewrote the entire system for moving items and fluids around within Trains. It should be more compatible and less buggy than the previous system.
  • INFO: The way the system works is that push and pull requests can only pass through carts that allow them to be passed. For example Chest Carts can pass item requests, but not fluid request. And Tank Carts can pass fluid requests but not item requests.
  • INFO: Because of the way the system works, you can either attach a Chest Cart to your Steam Locomotive to supply fuel or a Tank Cart to supply water, but not both. Choices are good.
  • NEW: Sneak-clicking with a Surveyor or Tuner will now clear the current pairing operation.
  • NEW: Redesign Tuning Aura and add Surveying Aura for the Goggles. Should be more visible now.
  • NEW: Add Signalling Goggle Aura, a combination of the Tuning and Surveying Aura.
  • FIX: Rock Crusher can now crush Entities again.
  • FIX: Disabled Tile Entity caching on Bukkit. Bukkit doesn't seem to invalidate Tile Entities correctly. This is likely the cause of most issues with Multi-blocks on Cauldron. Sadly, caching is a significant performance booster when it works.
  • FIX: Detector and Directional Detector Track should wait a few ticks before turning off the redstone. Helps prevents pulsing while trains pass over, which often led to glitchy railway logic.
  • FIX: Make Receiver Boxes occasionally update their neighbors to prevent situations where the Receiver says one thing and attached blocks another. Could happen when the Receiver was in a different chunk from the adjacent block.
  • FIX: Have Block Signals save the last known position of track end positions to NBT. Should prevent Signals from returning Yellow if the chunk on the opposite end isn't loaded. May cause traffic jams and collision if your trains don't have Anchor Carts.
  • FIX: Increase the area that Anchor Carts keep chunkloaded from 3×3 chunks to 5×5 chunks in order to help reduce chunkloading derived issues for moving Trains.
  • FIX: Boilers and Hobbyist Engines should defer water triggered explosions until their own update tick. Should prevent other mods from crashing when their block randomly disappears mid-update.
  • FIX: Disabling any blocks or items used in Rock Crusher recipes should no longer crash. Issue #602
  • FIX: Prevent Locking Tracks from reseting in the middle of a Train by searching for nearby carts that are 'almost' on the track.
  • FIX: Fix various issues with Signal and Controller/Receiver pairing that could result in dropped links and other random bugs.
  • FIX: Fix NPE in the Signal debug statements.
  • FIX: Fix minor issue with Energy Loader's IC2 integration.

Series 9.6

Version 9.6.0.0 -(23-04-15)

  • INFO: Full support for the latest Forge Fluid changes, also fully backwards compatible with older versions. May require some config tweaks for older versions.
  • NEW: Removed Forestry API files from the JAR to increase compatibility and reduce conflicts. All Forestry integration remains functional. (experimental)
  • NEW: You can now reset the Signal Tuner and Signal Block Surveyor by sneak-clicking.
  • NEW: Add Passive Anchor, does not force load chunks on game load, only when visited. Recipe uses Cyan Dye for now, but will eventually use Prismarine.
  • NEW: IFluidContainerItems should be completely supported now.
  • NEW: Add Debug in-game command that will dump data to the logs.
  • NEW: Capacitor Boxes now have a switch to determine if they should trigger on a rising or falling signal. (contribution by wshadow)
  • NEW: Improvements to the Switch code that should make them more reliable and predicable. (contribution by ssotangkur)
  • CHANGE: Loaders “Has Work” Buildcraft trigger should better reflect the actual loader status. Issue #535
  • CHANGE: Signal Block Relay Boxes now require two Signal Circuits in the recipe instead of just one.
  • CHANGE: Signal Block Relay Boxes no longer function as a Controller. If you need that functionality, put a Controller Box next to it. May break some setups.
  • CHANGE: Improve Signal Block debug print statements to help with debugging some possible issues.
  • CHANGE: Coke Block now 10x Coal Coke fuel value and is flammable. (contributions by daniel and Kamran)
  • FIX: Various chat messages that didn't before should now properly localize.
  • FIX: Personal Anchors should only tick their update (and fuel use) function once per tick…oops.
  • FIX: Fix Geode Generator. Issue #576
  • FIX: Geodes should only spawn under the ocean floor now, instead of half submerged. Issue #526 (contribution by liach)
  • FIX: Melt snow on top of Smokers. Issue #530
  • FIX: The Controller Box shouldn't respond to redstone signals that don't update it. Issue #539
  • FIX: Tanks should now properly sync with the client again. Issue #545

  • FIX: Fix stack-over-flow on circular Train.
  • FIX: SMP block sounds should work now (contribution by PaperTriangle)
  • FIX: Newly spawned Anchor Carts should attempt to force load chunks immediately instead of waiting for an entityEnteredChunk event.
  • FIX: Fixed localization issues with Track GUIs.
  • FIX: Disabling the Factory Module should no longer prevent you from cooking Abyssal and Quarried Stone.
  • FIX: Attempt to make Train objects survive linking and cart deaths (unlinking still needs work).
  • FIX: Anchor Cart should no longer request Chunkloader Tickets if the entity is dead.
  • FIX: Crowbar should no longer attempt to link dead carts.
  • FIX: Train Detector should no longer count dead carts as part of a Train. Issue #536
  • FIX: Crowbar Destruction Enchantment can no longer perform alchemy. Issue #519 (contribution by WoodStone)
  • FIX: Hide the Tank Valves Animation Tank from TankInfo calls. Issue #381
  • FIX: Properly Handle Invalid Regex Syntax in Routing Tables. Issue #518
  • FIX: Don't try to define Brick recipes if disabled. Issue #513
  • FIX: Reduce logging levels so that more log messages get sent to the log file instead of the console.

  • NEW: Added Personal Anchors, these World Anchors only keep chunks loaded if the owner is currently playing. Note: These Anchors do not force load chunks on world load, they only keep already loaded chunks loaded.
  • NEW: Applying a redstone signal to World Anchors will now shut them off. Just don't expect to be able to turn them back on again without being nearby. No fuel is used while off.

  • CHANGE: Rewrote the Recipe config section of the config file to use subcats and be more consistent. If you used non-default recipe settings, you will need to change them again.
  • FIX: Fixed another Rolling Machine dupe bug cause by machines/tubes that don't implement ISpecialInventory.
  • FIX: Tank Cart renderer now properly performs multi-layer rendering when rendering Container Items on the side.
  • FIX: Items dropped when a Railcraft Machine drops its contents on break are no longer stripped of any NBT data.
  • FIX: Train Dispensers now work better with Anchor Carts.
  • API: Reworked the Controller/Receiver API a bit to make it easier for addons to do many-to-many pairing (there were some minor issues still). Will break anything that includes the Signal Package again. =/

  • NEW: Added Iron Armor/Tools + Crowbar to Blast Furnace recipes.
  • CHANGE: Reorganized config file a bit, should NOT affect Block/Item IDs, but it will affect general tweaks and sub-blocks. If you use any non-default settings you'll want to double check things.
  • CHANGE: Separated Liquid textures from Container textures. The should help prevent lag with HD texture packs.

  • FIX: Added missing recipes for Reinforced Booster Track and Reinforced Junction Track.

Version 5.4.0 - (07-12-12)

  • NEW: Reinforced Track, a new flexible track with a high explosion resistance that makes it ideal for building rail lines in the Nether. Also has a 25% higher top speed without the risks of High Speed Track. Also Booster, Switch, and Junction versions added. Made with Obsidian Dust which you get from crushing Obsidian in the Rock Crusher.
  • NEW: Rock Crusher, a 3x2x2 multi-block machine that will process various materials. If Buildcraft 3.x is installed it must be powered by an engine (uses 15 MJ per tick max while running).
  • NEW: Crushed Obsidian, a ballast material made from crushing Obsidian. Has a high explosion resistance and is affected by gravity.
  • NEW: Added Track Relayer, a cart that will replace one type of track with another as it passes over it. Works best when linked to a Chest Cart.

  • CHANGE: Liquid Loaders no longer accept empty liquid containers. Liquid Unloaders no longer accept filled liquid containers or piped in liquids. This prevents using them as a simple bucket filler block. There are other mods for that.
  • CHANGE: Liquid Loader internal capacity increased to 8 buckets because it was running dry while filling carts.
  • CHANGE: Rewrote how the Tank Cart items stored Liquid Filters, expect oddities with existing items. System is much more robust now though and any liquid container will work.

  • FIX: Energy Loaders now implement ISidedInventory.
  • FIX: Tweaked Junction Tracks to hopefully eliminate track jumping.
  • FIX: Made an attempt at fixing some dupe exploits related to closing GUIs in SMP.
  • FIX: Major overhaul for the handling of liquid containers that should fix a number of bugs and exploits that were discovered while converting Creosote to a liquid.
  • FIX: Fixed a bug with the Crowbar that was causing entity interaction to terminate on the client in SMP. (No hearts, no milking, etc…)
  • FIX: Fixed a bug that was causing the alternative Creosote recipes to always be active. Also, Biogass Engine can only burn Creosote if the alternate recipes are not defined.
  • API: Added BallastRegistry to allow material other than gravel to used as fill in the Bore or Undercutter. Added Ballast as a possible EnumItemType.
  • API: Exposed the recipe managers to allow defining custom recipes for Railcraft machines. (Also, I broke the NEI plugin with this release.)
  • API: A major rewrite of internal code was done to expose the system used to pack infinite Tracks into a single block id. This should allow addon creators to easily add new Tracks with very little effort. There should be little effect on any mods currently using the API since the only classes that changed where mostly useless anyway.
  • API: LiquidTools has been removed and internalized, hope no one was using that. Interfacing with a several different APIs made it to difficult to maintain. It may return in the future.
  • KNOWN ISSUE: Item names default to “en_US” on game start. You must change language each session to fix it. (Forge ModLoader bug)
  • KNOWN ISSUE: There is no sound in SMP, I'll worry about this when MC 1.3 is released.
  • KNOWN ISSUE: When attempting to fill an empty bucket from a cart or block that contains Forestry Seed Oil, Honey, or Juice it returns a filled can instead. This is a Forestry bug!
  • WARNING: Not tested with Buildcraft 2.x! If you experience any errors let me know.
  • WARNING: The Railcraft NEI plugin will crash your game!

Series 5.3

Version 5.3.3 - (06-23-12)

  • CHANGE: Bore block type mining checks are now disabled by default, can be enabled via config. Does not affect current installs, only new ones.
  • CHANGE: Tweaked recipes and behavior when useOldRecipes is true. Factory Module is now loaded. Affected recipes reduced to only Tracks, Rails, and Railbeds. H.S. Tracks recipes are now the same as the standard recipes except they use Steel instead of H.S. Rails and Stone Slabs instead of Stone Railbeds.
  • CHANGE: Tweaked Loaders so that they are slightly less picky about cart velocity while loading.
  • CHANGE: Posts now connect to Glowstone and Glowstone Lamps.
  • CHANGE: Tweaked Switch Auto-Spring-On-Diverging detection to hopefully reduce false positives.
  • FIX: Removed “forge” folder from the distro, should never have been included.
  • FIX: Fixed an issue with Chunk boundaries and the new Multi-Block code.
  • API: Added IMinable interface to allow mods direct control over whether a block is mineable by the Bore.
  • API: Added IPostConnection to allow blocks to specify if posts should connect to them.

Version 5.3.2 - (06-05-12)

  • FIX: Changed all Orientations.dirs() calls to Orientations.values() to facilitate compatibility with Buildcraft 2.x.

Version 5.3.1 - (06-05-12)

  • FIX: Crowbars take damage again when rotating things and opening GUIs.
  • FIX: Tweaked some code that was causing Steve's Carts to crash.

Version 5.3.0 - (06-05-12)

  • NEW: Added new Module, Transport. This module will contain everything related to moving items, liquids, and entities from one location to another. This module will include the new Engine that is planned for the future.
  • NEW: Added Water Tank, a 3x3x3 structure that generates water over time (amount based on biome and other factors). Place a Liquid Loader next to it to fill carts (no Buildcraft Pipes required, but pipes will work just as well).
  • NEW: Added Sheep Detector, filters sheep by shearability and wool color.
  • NEW: Added config option to adjust the drag of empty basic carts, disabled by default. May have introduced some bugs, especially in SMP, let me know it there are issues.
  • NEW: Added missing recipe to convert Blocks of Steel back into Steel Ingots.
  • NEW: Added a Steel minecart recipe that outputs two carts.
  • CHANGE: Buildcraft dependencies removed. In other words, you no longer need Buildcraft installed to build Tank Carts and Liquid Loaders. Recipes changed to no longer require Buildcraft Tanks.
  • CHANGE: Buildcraft Module merged into new Transport Module.
  • CHANGE: Item Loaders/Unloaders moved into Transport Module.
  • CHANGE: Liquid Unloader no longer requires a Wooden Waterproof Pipe and Redstone Engine to pump liquid out. Just connect any Waterproof Pipe or any other ILiquidContainer, ie Tanks.
  • CHANGE: Liquid Loader can now be placed two blocks above the tracks and still fill carts. Will not work with vanilla Powered Tracks below the Loader, you must use one of the Railcraft tracks.
  • CHANGE: Liquid Loader and Unloader got new GUIs and can now hold 4 buckets internally.
  • CHANGE: Tank Carts got a new texture not dependant on Buildcraft and a filling animation.
  • CHANGE: Tank Carts now have a built in filter system so that you can mark certain carts as accepting only certain liquids.
  • CHANGE: Tank Carts got a gui that allows you fill/empty buckets directly from the cart. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN THE GUI WHILE HOLDING A FILLED BUCKET!!!)
  • CHANGE: Increased Tank Cart capacity from 14 buckets to 16 buckets.
  • CHANGE: Increased Tank Cart fill rate from 14 milli-buckets to 25 milli-buckets.
  • CHANGE: Tank Detector got an upgrade, it can now sort carts by empty. partially filled, and full.
  • CHANGE: Tweaked Item Loader/Unloader to better interface with ISpecialInventory + added the ability to interface with carts that implement ISpecialInventory. May have introduced bugs, not thoroughly tested.
  • CHANGE: Increased reset delay on Train Boarding/Holding Track to improve synergy with Trains & Zeppelins mod.
  • CHANGE: Minecart separation recipes outputs reversed (empty cart into the output slot, cart contents into the player inventory)
  • CHANGE: Multi-Block structures now only test for a valid structure when a change to a nearby block is detected. This means that there are absolutely no periodic updates to generate lag anymore and changes to the structure are more responsive. They still suffer from the general (if small) lag that all blocks with tile entities produce, but replacing all the Dirt in a test world (using MCEdit) with Coke Oven Brick resulted in ~10-20 fps and was still almost playable. You would likely see similar results if you replaced all the dirt in a world with Furnaces. If these results hold up, Infernal Brick will likely be merged with Blast Oven Brick in a future patch.
  • FIX: Fixed a bug that caused fill rate to be used as Tank Cart capacity (result was that the capacity has been 14 buckets for ages). -.-;
  • FIX: Anchor Aura now works with World Anchors in SMP.
  • WARNING: Removed all the old “Obsolete” versions of items. They will disappear from your world if you haven't already converted them to the new items.
  • API: Added ILiquidTransfer, minor extension of ILiquidContainer specifically for carts.
  • API: Added new versions of many of the InventoryTools functions that are better suited for dealing with ISidedInventory and ISpecialInventory.
  • API: Added new EnumItemType, BUCKET.
  • API: Liquid functions in GeneralTools moved to a new class called LiquidTools.
  • API: Removed ICrowbarTarget, all blocks now respond automatically to any item that implements ICrowbar. All that is required to give another tool all the functionality of the Crowbar is to make it implement ICrowbar.
  • WARNING: The changes in this version to the API will likely cause compatibility issues with other mods that use it until they are updated.

Version 5.0.0 - (04-16-12)

  • Updated to MC 1.2.5!
  • ModLoaderMp no long required.
  • Modified how items are stored for Tracks, Utility, and Structure blocks. Any Utility items will disappear from your world, place them before updating.

  • Fixed a crash when placing the Bore.

Series 4.0

Version 4.0.0 - (03-18-12)

  • Updated to MC 1.2.3
  • Moved to Forge network code, no more GUI conflicts and more information about missing mods etc. Currently broken, hence no SMP this version.
  • General code improvements.
  • Code changes to make adding the Blast Furnace easier.
  • The Bore now spits items out the back instead of the front.
  • Inverted Feed Station redstone behavior so that it is correctly disabled when powered, oops.
  • Reduced Feed Station usage to 1 wheat per feeding, still randomly picks an animal.

Series 3.4

Version 3.4.2 - (03-02-12)

  • No longer ignores the settings in “railcraft_modules.cfg”.

Version 3.4.1 - (03-01-12)

Version 3.3.0 - (02-07-12)

  • Added Energy and Growth(adult animal) Detectors.
  • Added Gated Rail.
  • Added Feed Station, not really minecart related but it was the only component missing from an automated cattle farm. Less efficient (by far) than feeding by hand.
  • New Feature for Elevator Rails: If a cart stops at a level that has a rail opposite the elevator rail, it will be pushed onto that rail.
  • Liquid Loaders now require Tank Detectors in the recipe instead of Storage Detectors.
  • Creosote Oil production ratios adjusted again. Coal=2:1, Wood=4:1

  • The direction of all blocks with facing information can now be reversed by using the crowbar on the side its facing.
  • Fixed a crash when breaking chestcarts and steamcarts.
  • Fixed all Rolling Machine Ore Dictionary Recipes. You should be able to use Bronze and Refined Iron for rails, posts, and rebar now. Refined Iron is slightly more efficient that normal Iron, Bronze is less efficient.
  • Added alternate Bronze minecart recipe.
  • Changed Creosote production ratios: 5 → 4
  • Fixed an issue with changing the default tank cart capacity.
  • Added safety fallback code for TileEntityFurnace.getItemBurnTime() since so many people seem to break this part of their Forge install.
  • Fixed ISpecialInventory issues with Rolling Machine that resulted in a dupe bug.
  • Improved Rolling Machine shift-clicking.

Series 3.0

Version 3.0.0 - (01-17-12)

  • Updated for MC 1.1.0 and Forge 1.3.0!
  • Modularized Packaging. A highly requested feature as can be seen in this poll.
  • No more MCL! - The required code is now part of Forge (Thanks, Lex)
  • Added Rolling Machine - Basically a custom workbench with its own recipes for crafting various metal items. Will function similar to a Buildcraft Auto Crafting Table in that it can be automated via pipes or loaders. It will be used to craft various types of rails that will replace iron/gold in the current recipes. Costs will stay about the same as currently (speed rails should get cheaper), its just easier for me to add more alternate recipes for Bronze, etc this way.
  • Item Loaders/Unloaders are now ISpecialInventory aware, meaning they should work with Buildcraft Auto-Crafting Tables. (tested against Rolling Machine, but not Buildcraft, assumption being I implemented ISpecialInventory correctly on the Rolling Machine)
  • Many recipes changed to accommodate the Rolling Machine. Changed recipes include: nearly all rails, stone posts, iron posts, concrete block. All will revert to previous recipes if Factory Module is not installed.
  • Iron Post renamed Metal Post, alternate Forge Ore Dictionary recipes added if the Factory Module is installed.
  • Added config option for max speed on high speed rails.
  • Added config option to have the Bore destroy blocks instead of drop them.
  • Added gui to Animal Detector so you can select specific animals.
  • The Tank Cart Detector now accepts empty buckets as a filter. An empty bucket detects only empty carts. (untested)
  • Tank Carts are no longer considered Storage Carts by the game.
  • Added Switch Lever - Similar to the Switch Motor, but manual control only. (lever added to switch motor model, currently static)
  • Added Piston to Switch Motor/Lever recipes (duh, what was I thinking?).
  • Added Distant Signal - Displays the status of a paired controller.
  • Added checks to Coke Oven to prevent chunk loading issues.
  • Optimized Coke Oven code.
  • Creosote Oil is now only produced after every 5 Coal Coke. Definitely going to want more than one oven going.
  • Fixed SMP version checking.
  • Added checks to prevent crashing if the cart's world var isn't set when acquiring the bounding box.
  • Fixed a serious flaw in the item id auto-assign code that could result in item ids changing randomly between versions.
  • Fixed an issue with pairing that could result in the process becoming stuck in a half finished state.

Series 2.2

Version 2.2.1

  • The Bore now damages living entities that get in front of it.
  • Crowbar damage vs entities increased by one: 4 → 5
  • Coke Oven network GUI ID default changed: 121 → 116
  • Crowbar recipe now requires 4 red dye to make it more unique. (Trivia: this was the original planned recipe, but there were no red flowers in MC 1.8.1)
  • Fixed additional issues with Signals de-linking in SMP.

Version 2.2.0

  • Updated Forge - Now compatible with 1.2.3 only!
  • Updated Buildcraft API - Now compatible with 2.2.6 - 2.2.10 and 3.0.2 - 3.0.4!
  • Added Coke Oven and Coal Coke. Coke heat content is 3200 compared to Coal's 1600.
  • Existing Creosote Oil smelting recipes disabled by default, but can be re-enabled via the config. Output reduced by one. They have been replaced by the Coke Oven.
  • Added Advanced Item Loader/Unloader - These more expensive versions of the loaders do not rely on gravity in order to operate. This allows them to load/unload minecarts horizontally and help facilitate the use of loaders with more types of inventories.
  • Reworked how GUIs are accessed on all Utility blocks. It no longer requires a Crowbar, and the GUI won't open while sneaking or when holding a rail. This was done mainly because the Cart Dispenser and Advanced Loaders used the Crowbar for orientation adjustment instead of opening the GUI resulting in every block being slightly different. Now they are all the same.
  • Made pickaxes effective on all rails since they became effective against normal rails in vanilla MC 1.0.0.
  • Added config option to set the minimum delay between dispensing carts.
  • Increased the cart detection sensitivity of Item Unloaders to facilitate distribution balancing.
  • Increased Detector Block sensitivity.
  • Fixed a bug with the minecart reversal recipes that was causing the Tunnel Bore recipe to return a minecart when crafted.
  • Fixed crash caused by ore dictionary when “block.structure=0” in the config.
  • Fixed a crashed caused by placement checks for Structures.
  • Fixed an issue with Signals de-linking randomly in SMP. There may be more bugs since there eight different checks or conditions that could result in the pairing being dropped.
  • Added Signal debug statement to help diagnose random Signal de-linking issues. They are enabled via the config “tweaks.signals.printDebug”. Please enable if you experience issues with Signals randomly dropping their pairings and send me the log so I can solve the issue.
  • Secret Christmas bonus for the adventurous. - Post Christmas Note: The bonus was Railcraft related loot drops in Dungeon chests.

Series 2.1

Version 2.1.1

  • Iron Bore Head uses increased: 1000 → 1500
  • Utility Block harvest drops fixed. (Loader, Dispenser, etc…)
  • Buildcraft interfacing to Cart Dispenser fixed. It no longer matter which side you connect pipes too. However, it can still put full stacks in the Dispenser. :(
  • Cart Dispenser inventory shift-clicking fixed.
  • Bore textures split into smaller files in an attempt to avoid buffer overflows.

Version 2.1.0

  • Tunnel Bore added.
  • Cart Dispenser added.
  • Tweaked textures for the Item Loader/Unloader to help distinguish them from the Cart Dispenser.
  • Existing Loader/Unloader items in your inventory or chests will all be converted to Item Loaders. Please place them in the world before updating if this matters to you. This was a side effect of reworking the system to allow for the Cart Dispenser.
  • Detector Rail recipe now produces eight rails.
  • Elevator Rails are no longer displaced by water.

Series 2.0

Version 2.0.2

  • Fixed an issue with entities colliding with a cart while riding it at high speed.
  • Fixed an issue with the Liquid Loader/Unloader.
  • Fixed an issue with installation checks not killing Minecraft if the check failed.
  • Fixed an issue with advanced rails dropping an extra normal rail when destroyed.

Version 2.0.1

  • Fixed an issue with entities colliding with a cart while riding it.
  • Fixed an issue with Speed Rails and slopes.

Version 2.0.0

  • Updated to Minecraft 1.0.0.
  • Speed Rail recipe output increased to 40 from 32.
  • Added filter slot to Detector (Tank) and fixed tank cart detection.
  • Some recipes changed: Iron Post, Signal Lamp, Switch Motor
  • Rewrote Loader block code so I can use the block id for additional block types. If you experience any issues with Loaders, breaking them and replacing them should fix it.
  • Fixed bug with Switch Rails changing metadata of non-rail blocks.
  • Fixed Controller Box GUI in SMP (another instance of copy/paste and forget).

Series 1.6

Version 1.6.4

  • Fixed an issue with the Forge Ore Dictionary.
  • Iron Posts are now paintable with IC2 Painters.
  • Detectors, Loaders, and Iron Posts are now IC2 Wrenchable with a 100% drop rate.

Version 1.6.3

  • Fixed Server mod detection.

Version 1.6.2

  • Creosote Oil output from both Charcoal and Coal increased by one.
  • Normal Rail recipe output increased by 50%.

Version 1.6.1

  • Creosote Oil can now be made from Charcoal. Increased the output of making Creosote Oil from Coal to two.
  • Fixed High-Speed Switch Rail, it is now treated as a High-Speed rail.
  • Control Rails can now be placed the same way as any other directional rail and can be reversed with the Crowbar. They still reverse directions when powered. Unfortunately this had the side effect of reversing the direction of existing Control Rails running in a Notch North-South orientation. Avoiding this would have required the code to be three times more complex than it needed to be. Sorry about that.

Version 1.6.0

  • Structures
  • * Posts - Good for making signal mounting brackets, telephone poles, bridges, trestles, fences, monorails, etc…
  • Wood - Cheap but flammable. * Iron - Expensive, but can be painted many different colors.
  • Stone - Arguably cheaper than Iron, but more expensive than Wood. Concrete Block - A simple block that matches Stone Posts and will link to any Post.
  • * Block Signal - When paired they will indicate the status of any minecarts on the rail between them (straight lines only unfortunately). Green for clear, yellow for a minecart travelling away, and red for minecart travelling toward the signal or stopped. Can be linked to Switch Motors. The Dual Head Signal can be linked to display the status of a distant Block Signal, good for displaying the status of a diverging route.
  • * Switch Motor - Can be powered via Signals or redstone. A true turnout switch with two settings: Through or turnout. No more quirky T-switches.
  • * Signal Receiver Box - Can be paired with any Controller. When paired, you can open a GUI to pick which Aspects should emit a Redstone current from the Box. If placed next to a Signal Controller Box it will transmit the Aspect to it as well.

===== ** Signal Controller Box - Can be placed next to a Signal Receiver Box and will then send the Signal Aspect from the Receiver Box to a paired Receiver.

  • Added Switch Rails.
  • Added Tank Cart Detector.
  • Added Advanced Configurable Detector made from iron.
  • Adjusted Buildcraft detection. Should work now irregardless of the OS.
  • Added support for Buildcraft 3.0.0. Remains compatible with 2.2.x.
  • Added a number of alternative rail recipes using IC2 Bronze, and for any mods that add Bronze using the Forge Ore Dictionary. Ironically, IC2 doesn't actually register Bronze in the Ore Dictionary. -.-
  • Wood Ties now need to be treated with Creosote Oil and Stone Ties need some iron to reinforce them. Recipes changed accordingly. Creosote Oil is produced by cooking Coal in a furnace. Some rail recipes output increased to balance the increased cost.
  • Tweaked the High Speed Rail conversion recipe to convert four rails at a time instead of two. This makes the process slightly more in line with the new resource cost.
  • Unpowered High Speed Boosters and Transition Rails will now propel carts at normal speeds to ease the transition from high speed to normal speed rails.
  • Fixed a bug where unpowered High Speed Transition Rails running Notch East-West where failing to slow carts.
  • Greatly reduced the slowing ability of High Speed Booster and Transition Rails. It was always intended to take around eight in a row to slow you. Not sure how they got to be so effective. I apologize for all the deaths I know this will cause.
  • Normal High-Speed Rails can now make corners and switches. You will still die if you attempt to use them at high speed though.
  • Launch Rail rebalance, default max force is now 30, recipe much more expensive, added config option for max force, capped at 50.
  • Wooden Booster Rails now drop Wooden Booster Rails instead of Holding Rails.
  • Added a check that will kill Minecraft with an appropriate message if the MCL is not detected.
  • Made installation error printouts clearer and more obvious. If anyone posts another crash because they didn't install the MCL they should shoot themselves.
  • A fresh Client and Server should now have the same default values for railcraft.cfg. It is still possible for Block Ids to be different depending on the order other mods are loaded in (it varies due to operating system) so make sure you provide appropriate config files for your users.

Series 1.5

Version 1.5.2

  • Added GUIs for all the Loaders.
  • Added config options for tank cart capacity and fill rate.
  • Fixed Wooden Booster Rail recipe.
  • If you fall in a minecart and land on a rail, all fall damage will be reset. No more taking damage when the minecraft leaves the rail after a fall.
  • Fixed fall damage issues with Elevator Rails .
  • Fixed bouncing when reaching the top of tall Elevators.
  • Fixed a crash when an advanced rail's tile entity is not set (not being set still means something went wrong).
  • Added a check that will kill minecraft with an appropriate message if you have more than one version installed.
  • Should now be save, but not recommended to change the ids of the basic minecraft, chestcart, and steamcart.

Version 1.5.1

  • Fixed a crash when destroying a Loader or Unloader.
  • Carts can no longer be pushed past a One-Way Rail .
  • Boarding/Holding Rails can no longer grab more than one cart at a time.
  • Tank Cart capacity reduce 50%, fill/drain flow rate increased 25%. Result is total time to fill decreased by 62.5%. Should be a much more dynamic system with a slightly higher total rate of transfer, or at least I'd like to hope so.

Version 1.5.0

  • SMP returns
  • Added Tank Cart for transporting Buildcraft liquids (only available if Railcraft detects that Buildcraft is installed)
  • Added Elevator Rails (uses new block id) - original code and concept by DizzyDragon
  • Minecarts moving at normal speed no longer collide with items by default. They still collide at high speed, both can be changed in the config.
  • Finished giving everything the ability to be disabled with the config (including several tweaks)
  • Adjusted Chestcart drag rate (was causing the cart to explode on slopes at high speed for some strange reason)
  • Rewrote the collision routine again. Collisions should be less bouncy and Steamcarts should work a tad better.
  • Converted the basic Wooden Rail over to the tiled rail system (the MCL made this possible). It will no longer use a separate block id. Existing maps will be converted on first load. Make sure you visit every part of your map with wooden rails before exiting. The converter will be removed in a future patch.
  • Fixed conflict with the ID Resolver.

Series 1.4

Version 1.4.0

  • No SMP this version.
  • Major rewrite to improve compatibility (probably broke multiple things, let me know if there are issues)
  • Now depends on the Minecart Compatibility Layer
  • Changed Wooden Booster Rail recipe, was much too cheap.
  • Added the ability to adjust the fuse on the TNT cart with a string.
  • Added Junction Rails
  • Added reversal recipes for Chestcart, Steamcart, and TNT Cart. Put a chestcart in the crafting grid and it returns a chest + minecart.
  • Added conversion recipe for normal rail to speed rail
  • Two new detector variants: Explosive, Animal
  • Mob detector changed to detect only hostile mobs

Series 1.3

Version 1.3.1

  • Fixed an issue with Boarding/Holding Rails and very short redstone pulses.

Version 1.3.0

  • Added Wooden Rails.
  • Added TNT cart and Priming Rail.
  • Reworked recipes, added ties and railbeds.
  • Reworked Unloader/Loader inventory logic, more compatible with Buildcraft pipes.
  • Fixed some high speed issues with slopes and collisions, rebalanced the high speed boosters (you might die, careful)
  • Fixed and improved cart lighting
  • Restored Powered Rails to their vanilla behavior. Never intended to change them (yet).
  • Reduced the likelihood that harvesting advanced rails will drop a normal rail due to tile entity caching issues. No tile in cache = drop normal rail, should happen less often now.
  • Expanded config file options: disable various blocks, rail, old recipes, etc… (not everything yet)

Series 1.2

Version 1.2.0

  • Added Speed Rails!
  • Added Holding Rail
  • Added Launcher Rail
  • Added Crowbar
  • Boarding Rail recipe changed to be more in line with the new Holding Rail.
  • Fixed an issue with the config file being created in the wrong location.
  • Fixed server/client sync for minecarts (apparently I broke it a while ago, that was why minecarts were so floaty in SMP)
  • Minecarts now rock when taking damage in SMP (harder than it looked, had to fix a few major flaws in my code that were preventing me from doing client side minecart code)
  • Detector names fixed
  • Removed rail conversion code - If your world used a 1.0 series version, please install a 1.1 series before installing 1.2. If this is your first time installing Railcraft you can ignore this.

Series 1.1

Version 1.1.1

  • Fixed Recipe Book Crash (for real this time)

Version 1.1.0

  • SMP Compatible!
  • Distinctive new system for compressing an infinite number of rails into a single block id. (Old maps should be converted to the new system automatically on first load)
  • 4 New Detector Blocks
  • Reworked Control Rails to boost/slow by a set amount, similar to vanilla Booster Rails. Previously it was a percentage boost.
  • <span style=“text-decoration: line-through;”>Checks added to prevent crashing (Recipe Book Bug)</span> - Still bugged

Series 1.0

Version 1.0.1

  • Fixed a bug that causes the game to crash if a minecart passed over a rail from another mod.

Version 1.0.0

  • Initial Release
