Usage Edit

To use the Wrench to remove a machine, simply right-click the machine.

Note There is a chance (Approx. 70-90% success rate) that when you do, the machine will not be successfully removed and instead you'll be left with a Machine Block.  To eliminate the possibility of losing your machine, it is recommended to upgrade to the Electric Wrench as soon as possible and enable "lossless mode."

Any items or energy stored in the machine will be lost when it is dismantled.

The Wrench's removing mechanic will override the machine's interface. Don't hold a wrench when you want to use your machines!

To dismantle a transformer or a storage block right-click its output/selected face. Right-clicking any other face of a transformer or a storage block will move its output/selected face to the side you are clicking. Clicking while sneaking will move the output/selected face to the opposite side.


Whenever any type of Wrench is used to remove a machine on a server, an entry is added to the server.log file detailing the username of the player who used it and the coordinates and blocktype of the block that was removed, this can be particularly useful for placing the blame in the event that a valuable machine is stolen.
