PowerCraft, originally called FutureCraft, is a mod originally by MightyPork, but later maintained by Rapus and XOR. PowerCraft is separated into multiple modules with different features.

History[edit | edit source]

PowerCraft was originally released by MightyPork and called FutureCraft. It was a combination of five of MightyPork's mods- Logic Gates, Conveyor Belts, Redstone Clock, Indication Lights and Redstone Radio. Most of these earlier mods were deleted, except Redstone Radio[1]. It was released for Minecraft 1.0 for ModLoader. It continued to support ModLoader throughout the mod's time span, although some support for Forge Mod Loader was introduced in Minecraft 1.3's versions, and with full support in Minecraft 1.4 and later versions. MightyPork maintained it until 1.4, when he handed it off to Rapus and XOR, who maintained it until its final release in Minecraft 1.5.2, version 3.5.2. Although an update was in the works for Minecraft 1.6 and 1.7, and a re-write called "PowerCraft 2.0" was being worked on for Minecraft 1.8[2], PowerCraft has not had another release, and its website is down[3].

PowerCraft/FutureCraft, in its earlier days, was accused of being copied from MineFactory Reloaded and/or RedPower 2, but this was proven false by the mod authors[4][5].

Older versions of PowerCraft supported many languages, including Czech, Portuguese, Danish, Russian, Finnish, Spanish, German, Serbian, French, Croatian, Dutch, Slovak and Latvian, but the latest version only supports English.

Nowadays, PowerCraft has been moved to 1.7.10 as an alpha version and will soon be updated to new versions by the new developer already as PowerCraft 2. It is released on CurseForge.
