Thaumcraft Gates is a tiny addon to Thaumcraft 4 which adds only one thing: Thaumium Pipe.
|Source Mod||Thaumcraft Gates|
|ID Name|| |
Thaumium Pipe is an item added by the Thaumcraft Gates mod. A Thaumium Pipe won't pull liquids, items or energy. But it connects to aspect containers (such as Warded Jars, Wand Recharge Pedestals and Crucibles).
If a gate is placed on it the player will be able to measure the amount of aspects inside of those blocks. It doesn't pull the aspects out or anything like that but it should provide you with ways to build more efficient and automated builds.
Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
When technology and magic work together
"This pipe cannot be used as a normal BuildCraft pipe, it will not transport items, fluids or energy. It does not transport anything as a matter of fact. But its uses are plenty!
This pipe connects only to aspect containers. It cannot pull the aspects out, but it allows you to measure them using gates. If the container has more than one aspect, the pipe will measure the most abundant one. Or, you can force the pipe to measure a specific aspect by setting a filter. Placing any aspect container items on the filter will force the pipe to measure only the aspect present in that item and ignore all others."
