Power Tools introduces new items to make your resource gathering much less time-consuming.


Now updated to Minecraft 1.7.10!
Minecraft 1.6.4 is still supported though.

Power Tools adds 4 new tools:
  • Shaft Drill
  • Wide-Bore Drill
  • Chainsaw
  • Jackhammer


RECIPES

The two drills, the Shaft Drill and the Wide-Bore Drill, cut different shapes into the landscape by removing more than one block at once.

Here are the drills in action. You can see the shapes they dig into a solid wall.

The Chainsaw makes harvesting wood take vastly less time. A single chop from the Chainsaw brings an entire tree crashing down. The Chainsaw is also pretty quick at trimming leaves. Just don't try to use it on anything else. It might break.

The Jackhammer makes mining those heavy blocks (like ores and obsidian) much easier. The harder the block, the faster it breaks! Don't try to use the Jackhammer on soft squishy things though. That won't work so well.

These tools need a constant supply of oil to keep running. As long as there's oil in your inventory, drill, baby, drill! Otherwise, you'll get nowhere fast. Oil isn't hard to make. You just need some coal and water. You can make 4 oil in hand with just a bucket of water and 3 coal, but that's not terribly efficient. At your crafting table, you can make 16 oil at the cost of 8 coal and one bucket of water.

Although, the most efficient way to make oil by far is to use an oil refinery.

The oil refinery block is made from one oil and 8 iron ingots. Just place it anywhere next to running water (wheel-side-wet), and it will continuously turn coal into oil at a 2:1 ratio without the need for all those buckets.

Once you have Power Tools, you'll wonder why you wasted so much time gathering without them.


Power tools is an open-source mod, so the full source code is provided. Just head over to the mod's Bitbucket site to browse the source. You can look for trojans and keyloggers in the source if you want, but there aren't any to be found there. Just drop the zip in your forge's mods folder to install (usually .minecraft/mods) and you're all set. Don't forget to add it to the server too.

Enjoy!

I know the chainsaw says don't try on anything else but could I "POTENTIALLY" use it on a zombie if he's inside my house trying to climb over or bust down my barricades and I don't have time to reload my Matriarch Revolver? The villagers sure as hell won't help.

I think chainsaws are rather effective against zombies if I remember correctly. =P
