Liquid Tanks/1.8 Version
This is an outdated module version. The 1.12 Version is an overhauled version of this module.
Details[edit | edit source]
Creation[edit | edit source]
A Liquid Tank can be created by placing down a hopper and filling it (in the specific order): a dispenser, a redstone block, a chest, a sign, and an empty bottle, then throwing a non-stained glass block on top of the hopper.
This will create an "Empty Tank" with a glass block in the third slot, a sign in the fourth and a redstone torch in the fith. Any liquid can be put into an empty tank by feeding it a bottle, bowl, or bucket of liquid in the first slot with a hopper placed in the second slot or in some cases via an entity above the tank and a brewing stand placed in the last slot. (more info below)
Utility Items[edit | edit source]
Tanks contain an inventory of items. Each slot can be used to control settings, functions or aesthetics about the tank. Utility items need to be placed in the correct slot to function and many are already in place when the tank is first created. Below is a list of items that can be placed in each of the hopper's 5 slots and what the item will do.
|1||Lapis Lazuli||Placed in a first slot with a hopper in the second slot this will convert an empty tank to an experience tank containing 1 XP orb. The lapis is consumed. This is because standing on top of an empty tank doesn't make it an XP tank, nor will XP flowing over the tank - this could happen by accident, and while placing a bottle o' enchanting in the first slot will work, these can be hard to get at first.|
|2||Hopper||Sets the tank to "Fill Mode". Full buckets, bowls and bottles placed in the first slot will be emptied and their liquid will be added to the tank|
|2||Dispenser||Sets the tank to "Empty Mode" Any empty buckets or bottles will be filled with the liquid that the Liquid Tank contains.|
|3||Glass Block||Removing the glass block from this slot will hide the glass viewing cube from the top of the tank. Replacing it will put the glass tank back.|
|4||Sign||The name of the sign will be changed to list the number of buckets (or levels for XP) the tank contains. Content is rounded DOWN to the nearest bucket/level|
|5||Redstone Torch||Disables the tank and sets it to "idle" mode. The tank will sit and do nothing - perfect for lag reduction. Tanks are disabled when first created|
|5||Brewing Stand||This adds a utility upgrade, allowing the tank to interact with entities above and below it, taking liquid and XP from the top, providing furnaces with lava and affecting entities below.|
Liquids[edit | edit source]
Below is a list of the items or liquids, and the amount of liquid they add/remove to/from their corresponding tank.
A base potion will fill 1/3 of a bucket to the tank. An extended potion will fill 1 bucket to the tank. Extended potions cannot be extracted from a tank.

Utility Interactions[edit | edit source]
By placing a brewing stand in the last item slot of the hopper, the entity interaction upgrade is activated. This allows the tank to transfer liquids and XP between itself and entities directly above and below itself.
Experience[edit | edit source]
Experience orbs flowing over the top of an upgraded tank will be sucked into the tank. This does not include experience dropped by the Ender Dragon, who drops larger orbs than anything else in the game. A player standing on top of an Experience Tank will also transfer his levels one at a time to the tank and a player stood below the tank will receive experience orbs.
Milk[edit | edit source]
Milk Tanks will clear the potion effects of any entity (except items) directly below them*. A Cow standing directly on top of the tank will slowly add milk to the tank (about one bucket every 5 minutes**).
Potions[edit | edit source]
Any potion tank will affect any entity (except items) directly below it* with the relevant potion effect at the cost of 1/3 buckets. The effect lasts 15 seconds longer than an un-extended potion drunk from a bottle. A Witch standing directly on top of the tank will slowly add one of four potions to the tank (about 1/3 buckets every 5 minutes**) if the tank contains less than 3/30 buckets of that potion. The potion types that a witch can produce are Regeneration, Fire Resistance, Speed and Instant Damage. If the tank below a witch is empty, it will randomly choose one of the four potion types to fill it with.
Soups[edit | edit source]
Any entity (except Items) standing directly below* a tank of Rabbit Stew or Mushroom Soup will receive a short saturation effect at the cost of 1/3 buckets of soup.
A Mooshroom standing directly on top of the tank will slowly add mushroom soup to the tank (about 1/3 buckets every 5 minutes**).
Lava[edit | edit source]
Lava tanks possess the ability to fuel furnaces that have an empty fuel slot attached to them.
The Tank will provide the furnace with a third of a lava bucket's worth of fuel when needed - that's 33 items per third of a bucket.
*This affects any entity occupying the space directly 2 blocks below a tank - a player's feet occupy this space, as do shorter mobs. Be aware that other entities like fishing floats, Armor Stands and Item Frames will also receive effects and drain your tanks occupying this space.
**It is possible to place more than one mob above a tank to speed up the collection process of liquids. E.g. 30 cows on top of the tank will each fill one bucket every 5 minutes, meaning a total of 30 milk buckets are collected every 5 minutes. More than 30 mobs will not allow you to pass the 30-bucket storage limit that entities possess.
