Ranged Pumps are the base for many of the custom games available on the Minecraft Mod site. They are a form of mining for those who enjoy building things up from the ground. In the game of Minecraft, you can make a mine and have various ores harvested from it. These ores can then be sold for a profit, or used to build new structures. This mod provides many different options for customizing your mining experience.
With this mod, one has the option to craft and/or buy any number of Ranged Pumps. The crafting options allow the user to choose between making basic ones that are used to simply move water around an area, and more complex ones that can pump unlimited amounts of water. Either way, the pump will move the water much faster. The mining part of it can dig into the ground and gather the resources it needs to create a tunnel. Once the tunnel is finished, players can harvest or deposit the ore into a chest. There is also an overload feature that allows players to smelt multiple types of ores at once, which is useful when trying to build an efficient tunnel.
Because this is such a major addition to the Minecraft experience, many people want to know how to build/buy/craft Ranged Pumps as easily as possible. Fortunately, there are several different ways to obtain this power. One way is to purchase the Forge Particle. These come in the form of chips that can be placed on the forge to produce a constant stream of power that is required for mining. The downside is that the chips can be very expensive and may not always be available for purchase.
The second option for acquiring the power of Ranged Pumps is to gain it through crafting. This process, while still relatively simple, does require some careful planning on the part of the player. Essentially, what is needed is ore and an enchanting table. Once the requisite items are placed on the enchanting table (specifically, you need to have one with “create negative” enchantments), simply take the mined ore and smelt it into a pile of power. This process is repeatable but only effective if there are multiple players/players simultaneously using the same forge.
The third and most effective way to obtain Mineconium power is to by using the MCF. This is a farming mechanic which is used specifically for obtaining seeds which are used to create more Mineconium. Once again, this is a great way for groups of players to farm large amounts of this rare metal without having to mine for it individually. A farming group of around 15 players can easily clear a sizable chunk of ore without any problem.
One thing to keep in mind when using these power-based accessories is that they will eventually run out of power. This is not a problem if you have a good supply of coal nearby because coal is renewable. However, if you happen to run out before your Mineconium has completely made it to the end-game, you can do one of two things. You can either wait until you have gathered all of the power you need or wait until you get a chance to restock on the power. Restocking your Mineconium reserves should not be rushed as doing so can leave you with practically useless items and Mineconium Power.
