Contributing

All users are welcome to contribute to the Forestry wiki provided they maintain the level of quality the wiki expects.

  • If you aren't sure about something, or are worried you've worded something badly make your changes then post in the IRC Chat so they can be checked.
  • If you are editing a page and are not sure about syntax/styling, refer to other pages and replicate them.
  • Familiarise yourself with DokuWiki syntax.
  • Draw the reader towards certain aspects using notes.
  • Recipes are created using a special plugin that HanFox wrote. You can see usage examples below.
  • Tag pages! Most importantly tag Items and Blocks. Other things (NPCs, armour) should be tagged Other. You can supply other tags, e.g. bees, trees, tools, etc.
    • You can see all the tags currently in use here.
  • If you create a new page add it to the Sidebar if you think it makes sense to. Otherwise make sure it's actually linked somewhere else.

Recipes

All recipes follow a relatively simple format and each item allows normal syntax although you should really just use links and images.

This may be confusing at first, but if you check recipes on pages and experiment you should be able to work it out pretty easily.

  • Crafting grids are defined using @c#=
  • Inputs are defined using @i#=
  • Outputs are defined using @o#=
  • Tanks are defined using @t#%[percent of total mB]=

Each item must be on a separate line.

If you want to do items that cycle in a recipe slot first check that the page doesn't already exist here.
If it does not you will need to make a blank page and, using the tcycle plugin, supply all the images (example here).
You then include the page in to the recipe (example here) using the following syntax:

{{page>location:of:page}}
Not every machine's crafting has been added yet. Only the ones listed below currently work.

Crafting Table

Inputs go from left to right from the top. The first row is c1 - c3, second row is c4 - c6, and the bottom is c7 - c9. The output is o1.

A stack amount can be set by supplying a *[amount] after the c1-c9 or o1, e.g. o1*5.

Carpenter

Inputs go from left to right from the top. The first row is c1 - c3, second row is c4 - c6, and the bottom is c7 - c9. The extra input (above the main output) is i1. The output is o1. The liquid tank is t1%[percent of tank e.g. 600mB is %6].

A stack amount can be set by supplying a *[amount] after the c1-c9, i1 or o1, e.g. o1*5.

Fabricator

The first 2 slots for liquids are i1 and t1%[percent of tank e.g. 500mB is %25]. The crafting grid inputs go from left to right from the top. The first row is c1 - c3, second row is c4 - c6, and the bottom is c7 - c9. The extra input (above the main output) is i2. The output is o1.

A stack amount can be set by supplying a *[amount] after the c1-c9, i1-i2 or o1, e.g. o1*5.

Notes

The wiki supports notes used to highlight information.

The grey inner boxes don't show under normal circumstances, they are just showing here to show the syntax.

<note>Used when the reader should just take a general note of something.</note>
<note tip>Used when giving helpful tips.</note>
<note important>Used to make the reader aware of something that should not be overlooked.</note>
<note warning>Used to warn the reader about something.</note>
<note power>Used to note something about power.</note>
<note transport>Used to note something about transport.</note>
<note ic2>Used for things that are specific to IndustrialCraft².</note>

Deprecated Notes - Shouldn't be used any more.

<note bc>Used to denote certain Buildcraft aspects, but usually just used to denote things needed power. Use power above instead.</note>
<note rp2>Used to denote certain issues with RedPower2 pipes. Use transport above instead.</note>
