The Fluctuating Itemduct is a block from Thermal Dynamics used to transport items. It is an upgrade to the Itemduct. Items can be pushed into it by machines or pulled into it by a Servo. Items that enter it will attempt to take the shortest path to the nearest valid inventory they can enter.
The Fluctuating Itemduct also functions as a mid-tier Fluxduct, 1/4th as capable as a Redstone Energy Fluxduct but 2.5x as capable as a Hardened Fluxduct, allowing items and energy to be transmitted through the space of a single block.
There are two types of Fluctuating Itemducts: normal and Opaque. Opaque Fluctuating Itemducts are cheaper and do not render items that pass through them; non-Opaque Fluctuating Itemducts render items that pass through them. This can cause more graphical lag, but can also be more aesthetically pleasing or satisfying to watch.
Recipe[edit | edit source]
Fluctuating Itemducts are crafted by filling Itemducts with Destabilized Redstone in a Fluid Transposer. Unlike other Itemducts, Fluctuating Itemducts do not have Dense or Vacuum variants, and cannot be converted between Transparent and Opaque.
