This mod provides low tech automation tools for common tasks. The tools will be upgradable as the player progresses.
This mod adds:
- A low tech miner that uses normal fuel. Replacing the the mined area with cobble and infinitely expandable (with enough resources).
- A simple tree farm that and plant and chop trees.
- Added a new set of blocks, introducing the Chopper!
- The chopper will plant and harvest most types of trees automatically. It will require a source of fuel and an axe to do so. The tree will be planted on the same level as the chopper is placed.
- The chopper, like its miner brother, will only process one block without any upgrades and will take the same upgrades. It also comes in 4 different favours and uses the durability on the axe that is in the machine. However it won’t use durability when harvesting leaves but the speed at which the leaves are harvested is solely based the level of the machine and not the tools.
How to install:
- Download and install Minecraft Forge.
- Download the mod.
- Click on the Start Menu in Windows.
- Type run into the search box, and select the Run program at the top of the results.
- Type %appdata% into the Run program, and press Enter.
- Go to .minecraft/mods folder.
- Drag and drop the downloaded jar (zip) file into that.
- Enjoy the mod.
- There is a whole rake of them, you can basically OP the crap out of the mod or disable it all.

To start out using PA for getting lumber you will need to make a wooden chopper.
When placed this you can click on the chopper to open the interface. To start the chopper you will need to put the following items into it:
* Fuel – Coal, wood, anything that can be used to fuel a furnace
* Sapling – You can give it any types of sapling and they will be planted around the chopper
* An axe- The chopper will use the axe to chop down wooden blocks, it will take durability but you can also enchant it. It will not however take damage when leaves are broken
The axe can only be up to the same level as the chopper, so you can only put a wooden axe in a wooden chopper, and you can put wooden, stone and iron axes in a iron chopper. Once running the chopper will attempt to keep the saplings and fuel filled with the items that it harvests, so make sure to keep the fuel topped up or else it will start to burn the wood as fuel. If the internal inventory is full the chopper will eject items into the world. It will also automatically put items into any inventory (like a chest) on top of the chopper.
The speed at which the chopper will break leaves will be faster when using a higher level chopper and does not depend on the level of the axe used.
To start out you will need to make a wooden miner:
When placed this you can click on the miner to open the mining interface. To start the miner you will need to put the following items into it:
- Fuel – Coal, wood, anything that can be used to fuel a furnace
- Cobblestone – Blocks that are mined are replaced with cobble, you need to supply it constantly or it will stop.
- A pickaxe – The miner will use the pick to mine blocks, it will take durability but you can also enchant it.
- A Shovel – Like the pick, the miner will use the shovel to mine blocks like dirt and sand.
The tools can only be up to the same level as the miner, so you can only put wooden tools in a wooden miner, and you can put wooden, stone and iron tools in a iron miner. Once running the miner will attempt to keep the cobblestone and fuel filled with the items that it mines. If the internal inventory is full the miner will eject items into the world. It will also automatically put items into any inventory (like a chest) on top of the miner.
By default the miner will only mine directly underneath it but the range can be upgraded by a single block with each additional upgrade that is put into it. You can put as many upgrades as you wish into the miner but the upgrades need to be of the same type of the miner. To get the upgrades back just break the miner.
