Autarchic Gate







ModBuildCraft
TypeItem

Autarchic Gates are devices which attach basic electrical logic onto BuildCraft Transport Pipes and Fluid Pipes. Unlike normal Gates, which can only provide the Redstone Signal and Pipe Wire Signal reactions, Autarchic Gates also have the Energy Pulser and Single Energy Pulse reactions. These allow the Autarchic Gate to act as a weak engine, moving items or pumping fluids through the attached pipe.

Autarchic Gates come in several versions; the standard Autarchic Gate, and Iron, Gold and Diamond AND and OR variants on it, which have increasingly more options.

Chipset Conditions Can Interact With Pipe Wire Colors:

Autarchic Gate 1 None


Autarchic Iron AND/OR Gate 2 Red


Autarchic Gold AND/OR Gate 4 Red, Blue


Autarchic Diamond AND/OR Gate 8 Red, Yellow, Green, Blue

Recipe[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

Autarchic Gates can be crafted with an Integration Table, using at least one Laser. They require a simple Gate, combined with a Pulsating Chipset.

Usage[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

The Autarchic Gates can be placed on all types and sides of the BuildCraft pipes with a right-click. By holding the crouch-key and right-clicking the gate can be removed without to destroy the pipe.

Note: The basic function is that the gate checks the precondition in the right slot, and, if this precondition is true, executes the option in the left slot. The bar between the left and right slot light up red when the precondition is currently True. All types of Autarchic Gates have all options like the standard Gate. The different to the standard Gate is, that the autarchic design transmits a Pulsar or a Single Energy Pulse to the pipe and can act as engines to extract or pump liquids. They provide slightly less energy than even a Redstone Engine, however, although they can respond more quickly to redstone signals.

With a right-click the player can open the GUI, which has dependent on the gate a different amount of slots. These slots can be configurated by clicking in it. The possible options depends on the pipe where the gate was mounted. The options which are available at all gates are listed in the tables below with a brief description:

  • All options like the standard Gate (goto)
  • Additional options for the Autarchic Gates (goto)

BuildCraft 6.1.1 and below[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

You can switch between Autarchic AND and OR gates, like you can with normal gates, by putting them in a crafting table, together with a Redstone Chipset.
