[Mod Idea] TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine)

  • Great idea and plan, but should be WAY more expensive. Redpowers' tunnel bore is a lot weaker and costs far more. MinecraftCreeper :Uranium Ingot: MinecraftCreeper

  • I didn't realize that eloraam had released crafting recipes for this... You have a source for the cost statement?


    yeah.. looked on her blog and saw a nice door video and a pic or two but no actual information beyond that.

  • after watching the benchmark video i thought



    thats not a tunneling machine, that a mobile fortress


    speaking of mobile fortresses... do want


    immagine building a house that moves as you craft, or do your macerating and stuff, then when you finish, your in a completely new area, with fresh resources to mine


  • Sort of like Zeppelin for vanilla minecraft. Most of the vanilla minecraft items (supposedly) work when the zeppelin controller is active. :) Yes, that would be totally AWESOME! :D

  • Wow... let us drop whatever blocks on top and carry them around, for the love of god, I will make a fully mobile drilling plant! autominers, buildcraft pumps, mobile quarries... my brain just broke...

  • I'm hoping that Noosius has just been really quiet because he's working so hard on the mod now that IC2 is updated... right? :)

    You could already do it in Railcraft - there is a tunnel bore in that mod, though not nearly as spectacular as this one!

  • Really nice mod.
    will try it soon. great for creating long road to the other half of the world.


    Because I dont like setting up my quarrys where or near I live.
    I like to do them very far from home. so I dont destroy my homeland, long story.....


    Question though....


    What happens if there is a big hole, like a cave drop.??
    in the path, many of these cave drops in minecraft, so im curious about this...

  • Fantastic Idea!


    Keep up the good work. I hope this doesn't die...


    I'd love to play with it.
