Dynamic Liquid Tanks Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.7.4

This mod’s more for the people who use industrial mods, but it has use in vanilla.  Those uses are mostly decorative, but I won’t complain about that.  The vanilla uses for this mod mostly revolve around hidden lava lights within your house.  You can also do cool things like put lava inside of what looks like a tree, which is amazing in my opinion.  You can also make massive tanks and do tons of other things with various other mods.  Now, onto all of the items, what they do, and how to make them.

The Multi-Tank Core is the base of the mod.  You’ll need one of these per layer of tanks.  So, if you have a tank that goes up vertically 4 times, you’ll need 4 cores.  The recipe isn’t too expensive, and you won’t need many of these unless you make a house out of tanks, which sounds like a pretty cool idea.  Your whole house could be a lava-lamp in disguise!  Recipe:

The Multi-Tank Extension allows you to increase the size of your tank.  Each one has the same capacity of a core, but are a lot cheaper.  You can camouflage both the cores and tanks by holding an item in your hand, sneaking, and then right clicking on the block.  Recipe for Extension:

The Dimensional Extension is like a regular extension, except it can be as far away from the core as you want.  You have to power it with ender pearls for it to do anything, though.  One ender pearl will last 20 minutes.  It can pull liquids from the core it’s attached to, as well.  Recipe:

The Dimensional tanks must be linked to the core with a link card, however.  To use these cards, place one into the top slot of the core, take it out, and then place it into the tank you want to link it to.  The cards can only be linked to a core once, so be careful.  Recipe:

Chipsets allow you to expand your tanks further, based on a percentage.  Only one can be applied per core, you must have extensions on the core to use it, and to get it back you have to place another one in the core to replace it.  The developer said this is why he made the coal one, since breaking a core will not give the chip inside of it, and the chip inside of the tank will be lost.  The recipes for all of them are here, they’re mostly the same, with the two side items being whatever the chipset is made from.  They can be made from coal, iron, gold, lapis, diamond, emerald, and nether stars.
