1.16.5 is now the minimum required version of Minecraft.


  • Aquatic Entangler (Cultivation)

    • Catches fish and other things from the water.
    • Bait isn't required but will make it work much better.
    • Bait can change the types of things which are caught.
    • Biome and number of water blocks in front of it matter!
    • Can use a Filter augment to restrict the final catch.
  • Bait

    • For use in the Aquatic Entangler.
    • It's data driven! You can make your own loot tables and then a bait entry to catch from it.
  • Explosives (Innovation / Locomotion)

    • 4 new types of explosives: Redstone, Glowstone, Ender, Slime.
    • Grenade, TNT, and Minecart variants.
    • Have fun. :)
  • Flax (Cultivation)

    • It's a crop. It makes string.
    • The artwork is fantastic.
  • Resource Mushrooms (Cultivation)

    • 4 types of mushrooms which when harvested, drop a generally non-renewable resource.
    • These require Mycelium, Podzol, or (untilled) Phyto-Soil to grow.
    • Glowstone, Redstone, Gunpowder, and Slime.
    • Mushroom growth cannot be sped up with bone meal or Phyto-gro.
  • Recycling recipe support! (Pulverizer and Smelter)


  • Adjusted behavior in the Induction Smelter somewhat to prevent really dumb things from happening.
  • Cells now have Transfer Control functionality and can extract from adjacent blocks.
  • Pulverizer and Smelter can now accept the Cyclical Processing augment for Catalyst reuse.
  • Refactors to where things live internally in preparation for 1.17+.


  • Fixed some weird XP calculation errors with the Insightful Crystal.
  • Minor visual fix with crops and Tilled Phyto-Soil.


1.16.4 is now the minimum required version of Minecraft.


  • Igneous Extruder (Expansion)

    • Generates various types of stone.
    • Requires a lava source and various other adjacent blocks.
    • The block under the Extruder may matter as well (for Basalt, for example).
  • Vacuumulator (Expansion)

    • Sucks up Items (and maybe XP) in an area.
    • Can use a Filter augment to restrict what it grabs.
  • Nullifier (Expansion)

    • Destroys Items and Fluids inserted into it via automation.
    • Items can be inserted manually via the GUI; a button is used to empty the inventory.
    • Can use a Filter augment to restrict valid items.
  • Decoctive Diffuser (Innovation)

    • Spreads potions in an area.
    • Redstone or Glowstone can be used to boost the potion strength or duration.
  • Energetic Infuser (Innovation)

    • Charges up to 9 items with Redstone Flux.
    • Automation-compatible, but does not automatically transfer or have side configuration.
  • Filter Augment System

    • Filter augments can be used in almost any block and will intelligently restrict input.
    • These work in some tools (Currently the FluxoMagnet).
    • Only a basic Item Filter for now. System is extensible and more filter types are coming.
  • XP Storage Augment

    • Can be placed in many different blocks to enable XP collection (from recipes). XP must be manually removed by a player.

  • So. Much. Mod support.
  • Two new Casts for the Blast Chiller. No uses yet in Thermal directly, but some are coming. :)


  • Augments are generally more intelligent about what they can be installed in.

    • This isn't perfect and can't work on all augments (as custom ones are possible), but it's generally a lot more convenient.

  • Crescent Hammer now applies an effect on hit. ;)

  • Redstone Control and Side Reconfiguration can be disabled by default and require augments.

    • These augments are hidden and uncraftable unless this option is selected.
    • Recipes for these augments can be adjusted with a datapack, naturally.
