Popular Minecraft mod creator TehKrush decided to expand on the existing world of MineFactory after the original creator, Feanorith, disappeared a while ago. Today, the Minecraft community is left with MineFactory Reloaded, which adds all sorts of automation features into the game.
Essentially, MineFactory is a way to automatically farm plants and animals in the Minecraft world. The mod also adds cool new features like rail tracks into the game. Ultimately, the goal of MineFactory is to allow Minecraft players to create low-maintenance, high-yield farms without having to micromanage every aspect of production.
To do that, players use tools like conveyer belts, planters, and fertilizers. There’s even a special ‘rancher’ tool that will automatically harvest ‘materials’ from any animal it finds, including chicken, cows, pigs, sheep, squids, and slimes. You can draw milk from a cow, for example, by placing empty buckets into the rancher.
Instead of having to collect that milk yourself, MineFactory Reloaded allows you to build liquid pipes and connect them to the rancher, which means you never even have to check back on your farm. Simply connect your milk ranchers to giant vats and watch them fill up with milk.
Animals only have a finite amount of resources to give, which means that they’ll die if you just leave a rancher inside their pen. Unless you want to watch your animals slowly die, MineFactory Reloaded gives players the ability to add a ‘vet’ into the animal pens. The vet will continuously generate food that heals the animals. Simply add food to the vet and it will supply your animals with more than enough resources to survive.
That’s not all that MineFactory Reloaded includes. There are also fish farming tools, rain collectors, block breakers, and railways. The railways are particularly cool, as an empty passenger cart riding along the railway will automatically pick up a player when walking within a 3 block radius of it. This makes it easy to check on your farm animals and get around the map.
Whether you want to farm your animals to death or simply ride around your world in a flashy new railway cart, MineFactory Reloaded adds a number of cool new features into the game. Install it today to start making your Minecraft farming experience a lot easier.
