Steambound reloaded - Automation, item transportation and much more!

Routers not saving their Inputs/Outputs has been fixed.

An industrial approach to starbound.
Automation, item transportation and much more!

This mod uses Pipe-Networks as a way of connecting things.
You can easily setup your own Network by placing "Heavy Pipe" blocks in the Background layer of your World.
Any Object/Container that is in front of those Pipes will automatically be connected to your network and will be able to communicate with every other Object attached to the same network.


Easy access to all your items. Request any item from chests that are in the same pipe network as your Terminal.

Pipe Inlet / Transmitter

This little Device that you can attach directly to any Pipe will allow you to send Items through your network to the nearest available Container.


Mines an area if supplied with coal. Once it is placed down it will search for the next wall on its right to define its maximum size.

It WILL break objects and pick up contents of broken chests so be carefull!
It will stop and wait if it`s Inventory is full/overflowing.


A Pump that gathers Liquids from below.
Place it on a wall, supply it with coal and it will suck up all liquids below itself into its internal inventory.


Don't think I have to say alot about this...


Allows for unlimited automation. Configure which item from which container should go where in your system.

All of the Machines can be turned off by applying a Wire Signal.

If you have any Suggestions feel free to post them below :D

How exactly do we use the router?

Ah yes, FU but good.
(I don't like the direction FU has taken)

@Zethren527 All planets get unloaded when you leave them, nothing can happen on a planet you're not on. This is part of Starbound itself; if it didn't do this, the game would constantly have every planet you've ever visited loaded, which would lag immensely.

Kinda sucks that you need to stay on-world for things to function, but I suppose it needs to be limited in some way... or is mine malfunctioning?

Frackin, with all of its excessly overdone and over complex clanky junk: I feel threatened

Is there any possibility of allowing foreground pipes to continue the network if placed? If you don't have custom ships installed, it would allow you to do things like having an extended fuel supply in an overhead box that feeds directly into your fuel, and 'large cockpit' blocks on big ships don't allow you to strip off the background panelling.

No, thank goodness it has NOT been assimalated by FU. FU has it's own system

Some of us believe FU has become insanely bloated and refuse to play with it anymore. Thank goodness there are mods like this that give a lot of the same toys but without the disgusting bloat.

Pretty sure this mod has been assimilated by FU.

Still waiting...

Does this still work?

not quite FU, but rather me. I made automation aides based off this and vesselbound (gone through a lot of iterations since). my stuff is also part of FU.
