TechPack is a collection of mods for an automated mining, crafting, and farming. It is no replacement for Pipeworks, Mesecons, Technic, and Co., but it is a lightweight and server friendly alternative.

You have to install the following mods in addition:



Do you recommend this mod?

  • Good mod except for the gravel sieve

    [edit] Now the issue has been fixed, thanks to joe7575. As a suggestion I would say that it might be a good idea to add this solution in the help documentation.

    The solution is: change the line:

    local PROBABILITY_FACTOR = tonumber(minetest.settings:get("gravelsieve_probability_factor")) or 3


    local PROBABILITY_FACTOR = tonumber(minetest.settings:get("gravelsieve_probability_factor")) or 20

    [old review] Everything in this mod works good and as expected, but the gravel sieve (says it eleviates mining so much) actuall makes your ore drop rates become about 10-20x more rare and you end up having to mine anyway just to get baseline number of ores.

    Other than that everything else works fine.

  • My favorite technic-style system

    I have played minetest for about 3 years now, and truly appreicate how fun automation is with techpack. It's compact and doesn't kill server performance. Highly Recommended.
