Techage Modpack

Go through four tech ages in search of wealth and power

Education Survival Machines / Electronics

Techage represents four technological ages

  • Iron Age (TA1) - simple tools like coal pile, coal burner, gravel sieve, hammer for getting ores and making goods
  • Steam Age (TA2) - Simple machines that are powered by steam engines and drive axles
  • Oil Age (TA3) - More modern machines that are powered by electricity. The electricity is generated by coal & oil power plants. The oil must be explored, extracted and transported.
  • Future Age (TA4) - Electricity from renewable energy sources such as sun and wind. Environmentally friendly electricity storage, intelligent machines and means of transport of the future

Since the levels build on each other, all ages have to be run through one after the other

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Quintessential Tech & Automation Pack

    Highly recommended!

    This pack has everything you need for a technology based Minetest game. Electricity, automated mining and smelting, item transport, programmable robots and more. You will not need Technic, mesecons, pipeworks or anything else alongside this modpack. It provides everything you need via alternative methods.

    The pack includes a full guide called the "TA Construction Board" which walks you through all of the mechanics. Machines have labeled faces for input and output which respect the rotation of the node. Item tubes are opaque and optimized. Generation and distribution of electricity are very well done as well as fluid pipes and other mechanics. The complex multi-block machines are fun to build and the instructions are easy to follow.

    Techage is essentially a complete automation game created with Minetest that gives other games in the genre a run for their money; especially considering everything is free, open source and highly optimized.

  • finally a more "realistic" technic mod with process

    this mod has brought me many hours of funn and i can recommend it for tech oriented servers its so much more immersive building a ta1 furnace than the technic mod 1ne block furnace (=D) its just the most immersive technic mod aviable right now
    its the perfect choice of technic mod for any realistic automation / technic/ industrial / historical / realistic roleplay oriented server
