Mekanica Mod 1.12.2 is a fork of the Mekanism mod featuring high-tech machinery that can be used to create powerful tools, armor, and weapons. This fork is fully backward-compatible with Mekanism, with a focus on delivering the same features with better performance and fewer bugs.
Fixed a long-standing problem where the Digital Miner would disappear randomly
Largest issue of lag ? ambient lighting ? has been overhauled for performance. Run ALL the machines!
Reduced size of texture atlas by 30%! (screenshots below)
Added support for comparators on bins
Rewrote entire sound system to work reliably with mufflers; reduced size of sound files by 90%
De-duplicated code across the GUI to allow for consistency and easier maintenance
Completely rewrote item model rendering to use TEISRs. No more hacky/crash-prone immediate-mode OpenGL rendering of complex items!
Solar power generation is rewritten to be more realistic (they work better in cooler, less humid environments?and in space work REALLY well). Biome matters now and when it rains, they still trickle some power, but at a significant penalty.
RF is now the default unit of energy.
Rewrote turbine rotors for improved reliability (less so that instead of sending n^2 packets per multiblock formation/chunk load/neighbor change they now only send n packets; also fixed various crashes associated with turbines across chunk boundaries.
Dramatically improved CraftTweaker support!
Removed voice-server functionality
Changed gases to use tints instead of textures; less memory, easier to change and differentiate visually
