HOORAH! Another Thaumcraft addon (kinda).

Technomancy, as much as you can guess from the name, is based around combing magic and technology in a (hopefully) fun way. A lot of blocks will be added based around the RF power system and using it to perform advanced magical shenanigins. There will be Ars Magica support as well (as soon as I can devise what I'm going to add) but that will be at a later date. Witchery and Blood Magic support are also on the list. There is definitely going to be a plethora of dynamos to power your base in unique strange different ways.

Current version: 0.5.1
I'm just making up version numbers at this point.
Requires:
COFCore 2.0.0.5
Thermal Expansion 3.0.0.7
But if you want content you'll add:
Thaumcraft 4.1*
Blood Magic 0.7.3e
Botania beta-16



You'll see this list expand in the future.
Implemented
Dynamos:
  • Essentia Dynamo: Powered by any type of essentia. Each type gives a different fuel value by "category" (Primals have the same fuel value, Human-like aspects have the same values, plants are the same, etc). Essentia can be pumped in to any side and will be drawn from any type of jar regardless of label.
  • Node Dynamo: Pulls aura from a node (without breaking it). Nothing but bright nodes will be able to keep up with the aura draw rate.
Machines:
  • Ecologic Transmuter: Buy supplying a very large amount of power, the Transmuter will terraform a maximum area of 300 blocks to either Tainted Land, Magical Forest, or Eerie biomes. Right Click to toggle the output biome.
  • Quantum Jar: Stores 640 essentia. It will suck any essentia out of jars nearby as long as it has some essentia in it.
  • Node Fabricator: Creates aura nodes using massive amounts of power, Aurum, and taint.
  • Orderly Lamp: Reduces instability in infusion altars by pumping all the flux to another location.
  • Ender Jar: Like an ender chest but with essentia.
  • Essentia Coil: Transmits essentia wirelessly.
Unimplemented
Dynamos:
  • Thaumic Dynamo: Uses magical fuel! Inteded to give double fuel values on things like alumentum and different types of wood.
  • Golem Dynamo: A hamster wheel powered by golems! Faster the golem, the more power is produced. May incorporate strength in there somewhere.
Machines:
  • Essentia Reconstructer: The reconstructor will be able to create blocks/items out of essentia based on the block/items aspects.
  • Magic Tesseract: Works similarly to a tesseract, but transfers magic around instead of items, liquids, and RF.
  • Eldritch Consumer: Requires massive amounts of power to absorb surround blocks and turn them into essentia.

That goes double for this one.
Implemented
Items:
  • Coil Coupler: Couples coils.
  • Pen: Scribing tools that last a lot longer.
  • Energized Wand: A wand with a small amount of vis storage that recharges itself through capacitors.

Unimplemented
Items:
  • Fusion Wand Cap: Absorbs the base vis from nodes until their is nothing left destroying the node. A node can be created from the vis in the wand based off of how many nodes were destroyed and how much vis is in the wand.
  • Essentia Cannon: Picks up jars of Essentia and gains different effects based on the type of essentia.
  • Phase Saber: A sword that can toggle through wand caps changing its effect/strength depending on the cap.
    • Excavation: Increased block ability.
    • Fire: Damage increase and fire aspect for an extended period.
    • Lightning: Massive damage incease and large knockback.
    • Equal trade: Health Aborbtion.
    • Frost: Weakness and slowness.
    • Destabilizer: Drains hunger.
  • Anti-Matter Bucket: Able to pick up/place flux goo. No, I don't care how OP it is. It will probably end up taking up a massive amount of space. So calm your tits balance-nazis.

If you see a version here that can't be downloaded, it's because I write the changelog before release so I don't forget what's been changed.

Modpacks:
I can't, nor will I try, to prevent you from using your mod in any modpack, however, I do no condone this behavior either. If you are going to use my mod in your modpack, at least recognize me as the mod author and provide a link of some sort to the original mod thread (on either the Minecraft or FTB forums).

Legal Whatnots:
Technomancy by Democretes in now under the Creative Commons Liscence.

TL;DR-I'm making magic crafting and research easier with the use of a power system while adding endgame items.

Don't expect a public release anytime soon. I'm rather new to modding so it's going to take me some time especially on the more complicated stuff. Don't expect a full working release any time soon. Any kind of feedback or help is much appreciated as long as it's positive.

Please make sure that Saxum and Terra can't be used in the Essentia Dynamos. Otherwise, infinite energy from stone and dirt!
I was thinking of adding extremely low fuel rates for them. You can burn them for energy if you want, but you're going to have to turn them into energy using energy. You won't have any net gain, so you can burn your cobble in style without creating infinite energy.

O.O considering I both love addons for thaumcraft and that my skin is a technomancer I must get this when it releases. May the gods rain praise upon thee and the metallic lords bend to thy will.

Essentia Reconstructor is a very bad idea for things that have few aspects but are very expensive. I highly suggest that you do NOT implement such a device.

I agree with NegaNote, the Reconstructor is a bad idea. Plus, it would be fairly hard to code. Not to mention that many items have the exact same essentia in them (all log types being the first example to com to mind but mods probably add others). Also, Technoturge is very awkward, and the generally accepted term is Technomancer. Other than that, this sounds awesome.

I gave a very vague description of the reconstructor, so allow me to explain.

It will not be able to create any item. an item will be placed into the machine's inventory and aspects will be fed in to create that item. This is will more than likely be limited to raw materials such as ingots, crystals, and other generic blocks. Things like arcane bores or silverwood wand cores won't be able to be created. It's basically a way of transmuting items to essentia into other items. It's basically the the Thaumcraft UUM.

Yay! A Democretes mod! Sounds great and can't wait. If you can, making the Golem cloner be similar to iChun's Sync mod where your shell is created might look neat. And of course, it would need time to duplicate the Golem.

No matter how awesome that would be, my lack of artistic talent inhibits that idea.

As a technomage I approve of this mod, always liked the idea of magic engines and whatnot and was disappointed when the only mod I could find that added them was and IC2 addon.

Advanced thaumaturgy also has it
