The Teleporter is a machine in IndustrialCraft 2 that is used to instantly transport players, animals, and mobs over a distance to another Teleporter. The EU cost of the teleportation depends on the distance covered, and the weight of what is being teleported.

## Recipe ## Usage

### Powering the Teleporter

Due to the large amount of EU used to teleport, it is not sufficient to connect a Teleporter to the EU network with Cables; not enough EU could be provided quickly enough. Instead, the Teleporter must be placed directly touching an EU storage unit: BatBoxes, MFE's, MFSU's, LESU's, IESU's, and AESU's all work. The EU cost of teleporting will be shared equally between any EU storage units that are adjacent to the Teleporter.

#### Calculating the EU Cost

The Teleporter uses a somewhat complicated formula for determining how many EU's are needed to perform one teleportation: This formula has two key variables- weight, and distance.

##### Weight Formula

The weight of an animal is always 500, and the weight of a mob is always 100. The weight of a player can be determined with the following formula: The pieces variable refers to the number of armor pieces that the player is wearing. The inv variable is determined by the formula, , for each stack of items in the player's inventory.

##### Example Calculation for Weight

Given a player that is wearing NanoSuit Boots for armor, and has in his inventory 64 Cobblestone, 3 Diamonds, and 6 Snowballs: ##### Distance Formula

The calculation for distance is as follows: where x, y, and z are the respective end coordinate subtracted by the starting coordinate.

##### Example Calculation for Distance

If the first Teleporter is placed at (25, 60, -40), and the second Teleporter is placed at (40, 35, -30), the total distance is: ##### Example Finished Calculation

Assuming the figures in the examples above, the total EU cost for one teleportation is:
