The Bucket-O-Meter Sensor is a sensor block added by GregTech 6 which measures fluids in cubic meters (equivalent to buckets).

Recipe[edit | edit source]

Usage[edit | edit source]

Sensors can be rotated with a Wrench horizontally. A Monkey Wrench can be used to specify which of the five non-front sides reads the adjacent block space. Both tools display the helper grid, but respond to the area clicked on the thin model itself.

Using a Screwdriver on the upper display section toggles between decimal and hexadecmial notation. Using the Screwdriver on the six buttons in the lower left increases or decreases the averaging period for readings. Using the Screwdriver on the lower right icon section rotates between sensor modes:

00000m3 Display raw amount
00000% Display percent of maximum capacity & Emit scaled 0-15
>0000m3 Emit 15 IF greater than set point
=0000m3 Emit 15 IF equal to set point
<0000m3 Emit 15 IF less than set point
☉0000m3 Emit 15 if NOT equal to set point
=100%m3 Emit 15 IF maximum or overflow
<100%m3 Emit 15 IF less than maximum

Many of these modes will cause the sensor block to become redstone powered under certain circumstances. While in any of the four compare to set point modes, the set point can be changed by clicking on the six buttons in the lower left with a useless item or empty hand, in the same way as the Screwdriver would change the averaging window.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The Sensor can show values between 0 and either 65535 (0xFFFF) if in hexadecimal mode, or 10000 if in decimal mode. If the target block holds more than 65535 buckets of liquid it will display a modulo of the amount of liquid stored by the display's maximum (e.g. if a block holds 200000 B, it will show 200000 mod 65535 = 3395 B); this is equivalent to the display showing only the last digits of the whole reading.

It works with almost any liquid storage block; the only exception is measuring fluid blocks in world. Liquid source blocks will be measured as 1 B or 100%, while any other is read as 0 B, regardless of actual partial fluid amount or stage of flow.
