Extra Utilities is a mod created by RWTema. It is a mod that adds an assortment of random items and blocks that can be very useful: low-lag pumps and quarries, power/fluid/item transport pipes, automation, storage (for items and liquids), decoration, mob traps and farming, building, and much more. It provides alternative Redstone Flux (RF) generators that consume fuel ranging from normal Coal and Charcoal to food, Nether Stars, and even dyes. It also provides assistance for those playing on peaceful, with a peaceful mode-only crafting recipe for Nether Stars added.

Another utility the mod provides is compressing Cobblestone, Sand, Gravel, and Dirt. Cobblestone can be compressed 8 times up to Octuple Compressed Cobblestone being resistant to the Wither. Dirt can be compressed up to 4 times whereas Sand and Gravel can only be compressed twice.

The mod also provides low-lag alternatives to the Quarry and Pump through the Ender Quarry and Ender-Thermic Pump respectively. It also adds a low-lag fast Cobblestone Generator alternative, in the form of a Transfer Node with a Mining Upgrade. One of the secondary objectives of the mod appears to be to provide an alternative method of doing various normally high lag tasks as efficiently as possible.

The mod adds a new dimension: The Deep Dark - designed for mining, with vanilla ores spawning at 2x rates. Be warned: In the Deep Dark darkness is damaging. Mobs can spawn at all light levels in the Deep Dark, although Magnum Torchs and Chandeliers will prevent spawning as normal.

A while ago I started tinkering with Minecraft modding as a way to better learn java. I had no serious intentions of ever making a proper mod so I basically threw in every silly and stupid idea that came to me. Most didn't work or were impractical for a real server but there were a few that I felt had potential and even some that I heard other users wishing they had. So I've decided to take the best ideas, polish it up and release it to the community and see if anyone else likes it.
