Fluid Transposer


Fluid transposer

Filling buckets by hand is hard work.

A fluid transposer, or transposer for short, is a machine that fills and empties items that hold fluids, like buckets.

Obtaining

A placed fluid transposer can be instantly picked up by dismantling it with a crescent hammer. Its configuration is preserved in the item. It can also be mined using a pickaxe, though this can be much slower.

Crafting

Upgrading

A fluid transposer is initially at the lowest tier (basic). It can be upgraded to higher tiers using upgrade kits and conversion kits.

Usage

Placement

When placed, a fluid transposer faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a crescent hammer or similar.

Processing

A fluid transposer can be in two modes: Fill and Empty.

In Fill mode, a fluid transposer fills or infuses items with fluids. When items are placed in a transposer’s input slot in this mode and the input tank is filled with a fluid, the machine will start consuming Redstone Flux to fill the items with fixed amounts of fluid. Every item requires a certain amount of energy to fill with a certain amount of fluid. When enough energy has been consumed for an item, the input fluid is consumed. A fluid transposer will keep processing the same item until the item is full or the fluid runs out. Otherwise, the output is placed in the output slot.

In Empty mode, a fluid transposer works similarly, except fluids are extracted from items and the tank is an output tank.

The speed at which a fluid transposer processes items depends on how much energy it can use per tick. This in turn depends on how much power is being supplied, and on the machine’s maximum power usage. A basic transposer has a maximum power usage of 20 RF/t. This can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier, and by installing certain augments.

Input and output

Items and fluids can enter and exit a fluid transposer through its sides. Every side of a transposer may correspond to its input slot, its output slot, its input/output tank, or certain tanks/slots at the same time.

A fluid transposer can automatically transfer items and fluids out of any sides that directly correspond to its output slot/tank. This is called auto-output. It can also transfer items from adjacent inventories into any sides that directly correspond to its input slot. This is called auto-input. Auto-output for items and auto-input occurs whenever the machine finishes processing an item, or every 32 ticks (1.6 seconds) if the machine is inactive. Auto-output for fluids occurs whenever there is a fluid in the output tank.

A basic fluid transposer can automatically transfer up to 8 items at a time, and can automatically output fluids at a maximum rate of 100 mB/t. These amounts can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier.

Which sides correspond to which slots/tanks and whether auto-output and auto-input are enabled can be configured using the Configuration tab in the machine’s GUI.

Redstone control

A fluid transposer may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:

Ignored
Redstone control is disabled. The transposer works whenever possible. This is the default mode.
Low
The transposer works when not powered. When powered, it stops working.
High
The transposer only works when powered.

The current mode can be set using the Redstone Control tab in the machine’s GUI.

When a fluid transposer must stop working due to a redstone signal and is still processing an item, it will finish processing that item before stopping.

Security

A fluid transposer can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.

Redprints

A fluid transposer’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other transposers.

Tiers

Fluid transposers come in six tiers.

Tier Max. power usage Augment slots Max. items per auto-transfer Max. fluid auto-output rate
Basic 20 RF/t 0 8 100 mB/t
Hardened 30 RF/t 1 16 300 mB/t
Reinforced 40 RF/t 2 28 600 mB/t
Signalum 50 RF/t 3 44 1000 mB/t
Resonant / Creative 60 RF/t 4 64 1500 mB/t

Augmentation

A fluid transposer can have augments installed to improve certain properties or to change how it works. The amount of augments that can be installed depends on the machine’s tier. A basic transposer cannot be augmented.

Augments can be installed in the Augmentation tab in a transposer’s GUI.

Augment Installable in Description
Auxiliary Reception Coil Auxiliary Reception Coil Any machine Increases a machine's maximum power usage (speed). However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
Auxiliary Sieve Auxiliary Sieve Machines with
secondary products
Increases the chances of a machine producing a secondary product. However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
