Lexical Transmuter

Lexical transmuter

A lexical transmuter is a device that converts items into other items that are considered equivalent. Examples of equivalent items are the various versions of copper and tin ingots added by different mods.

A lexical transmuter is essentially a Forge Lexicon in block form.


A placed lexical transmuter can be instantly picked up by dismantling it with a wrench. Its configuration is preserved in the item. It can also be mined using a pickaxe.




When placed, a lexical transmuter faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a wrench.


A lexical transmuter allows users to configure a list of preferred items to convert equivalent items into.

When an active lexical transmuter receives items for which preferred equivalent items are configured, it converts the items into the preferred equivalents. The device attempts to convert items every 16 ticks (0.8 seconds).

Input and output

Items can enter and exit a lexical transmuter through its sides. Every side of the device may correspond to its input slot, its output slot, or both at the same time.

A lexical transmuter can automatically transfer items out of any sides that directly correspond to its output slot. 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 and auto-input occur every 16 ticks (0.8 seconds). Auto-output occurs after items are converted, and auto-input occurs right before items are converted. The device can automatically transfer up to 64 items at a time.

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

Redstone control

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

Redstone control is disabled. The lexical transmuter works whenever possible. This is the default mode.
The lexical transmuter works when not powered. When powered, it stops working.
The lexical transmuter only works when powered.

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


A lexical transmuter can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.


A lexical transmuter’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other lexical transmuters.

Light source

When a lexical transmuter is active, it emits a light level of 12.
