This module adds an item that can pick up and move containers and Gamemode 4 machines without having to take out the contents!
Features[edit | edit source]
By placing down a relocator, the player is able to pick up and move a container or custom machine block. Whenever a relocator is placed, it will immediately return to the player's inventory unless placed on a container or machine block. Containers containing shulker boxes can not be picked up.

Picking Up a Container or Machine Block[edit | edit source]
The relocator will pick up the block it is placed on (this means a block cannot be picked up from the bottom because a skull cannot be placed on the bottom of a block), this could be a chest, a dropper, a Liquid Tank, a Custom Crafter or similar. Relocators can not pick up containers that have a Shulker Box inside.
Once a block is picked up, the relocator will drop as a custom block. It will have a lore indicating that it is a Relocator.
Placing Down a Machine Block[edit | edit source]
To get the block back, simply place down the custom block created when initially picking up a machine block. The original relocator item will drop once the block is created.
Compatibility[edit | edit source]
The relocator is capable of picking up compatible GM4 Machine Blocks. Any module can support relocation; custom pick up and place down functions are available so each module is able to be correctly compatible with relocators.
The following modules have relocation support:
- Block Compressors
- Custom Crafters
- Enchantment Extractors
- Ender Hoppers
- Liquid Tanks
- Master Crafting
- Tinkering Compressors
All machine data (inventory items, liquid levels, ...) is preserved when moving a machine this way.

Previous Versions[edit | edit source]
MC 1.14-1.15 Versions[edit | edit source]
Prior to 1.16, Relocators were less reliable and less expandable. When picking up a block, the block that the machine block was made of (e.g. dropper/hopper) dropped as the relocated block, instead of a custom block item. Additionally, there was no hardcoded implementation for deciding whether a block should or shouldn't be picked up, leading to errors with some machine blocks (e.g. relocated smelteries were bugged until breaking and placing it down again).
In these versions, the following technical details were present:
- Sometimes the raytracing doesn't work properly and the items used to initially create the machine block will be spawned about five block in front of the player. This only happens if the raycasting does not find the correct block, due to the player moving too fast or a unique hitbox, such as the hopper.
- The following data is stored for a machine block armor stand: Small, CustomName, ArmorItems, DisabledSlots, Invulnerable, Pose, Tags, Y-Position relative to the block
- The following data is stored for a machine block: CustomName, Lock
MC 1.15-1.17 Versions[edit | edit source]
Prior to 1.18, Relocators were solely used to pick up and move Gamemode 4 machines. Pickup would only work for empty machines (no items in internal inventory) and data such as a Liquid Tanks' liquid would be lost.
