Allows for automated tinkering of items as an extension of Block Compressors.

Features[edit | edit source]

Items affected by the Tinker Shamir passing over a Tinkering Compressor will be converted into or out of block form. Any amount of items can be converted, no matter the stack size. i.e. a stack of 64 will convert to 7 blocks, leaving 1 item behind, while a stack of 9 will convert to just 1 block.

Creation[edit | edit source]

To create a Tinkering Compressor, throw a Tinker Shamir onto a Block Compressor and power a downwards facing piston two blocks above the compressor. When broken, a Tinkering Compressor will drop the Tinker Shamir as well as all items used to create the original Block Compressor.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The GUI of a Tinkering Compressor is used as a settings interface for the type of compression it will do. A Tinkering Compressor has 2 modes. It can tinker items into blocks or detinker blocks into items. Placing 64 items in the Tinkering Compressor will set it to tinkering mode, and placing a single item into the Tinkering Compressor will set it to detinkering mode.

Once the Tinkering Compressor is configured, throw items onto the Tinkering Compressor to convert the items. Below is a list of affected items. Note that items don't have to be in exact stacks for tinkering to initiate, any amount of items greater than or equal to the minimum will produce the proper result.

9 Diamond (x9) Diamond Block (x1)
9 Redstone (x9) Redstone Block (x1)

Compatibility[edit | edit source]

Tinkering Compressors can be moved with Relocators. When placing a relocated Tinkering Compressor, the dropper will face away from the block that it was placed on.

Technical Details[edit | edit source]

When an item is tinkered or detinkered by a Tinkering Compressor, the resulting item(s) will not be able to be tinkered or detinkered again until a player or hopper picks it up.
