The tank is a new block which allows players to store fluids. This take behaves like any traditional tank in minecraft, allowing for basic interaction with buckets. Additionally these tanks can be filled and drained using other mods, such as Tinkers Construct and BuildCraft. When broken by a player, the tank will keep any contents stored inside, allowing for easy transportation of larger fluid quantities. If broken while sneaking, the tank will still drop however its contents will be lost, allowing for easy fluid disposal. Tanks can be filled or drained from any face. When exploded, tanks have a 100% chance to drop as an item, and keep their contents. Tanks can also be pick-blocked to get an exact copy. Tanks have a maximum stack size of 1. Only tanks of the first tier can be crafted, other tiers are made available through the use of upgrade items.
Along with the tank block, an upgrade item has been added. The upgrade items will allow players to increase the capacity of the tank by right clicking the item on the tank. Upgrade items are consumed after being used. For an upgrade item to be usable, the upgrade must be only one tier above that of the tank, or the same tier. Although using a tank upgrade on a tank of the same tier generally won?t provide any capacity increase, it will allow you to change the texture of the tank to that of the upgrade used. Upgrade items have a maximum stack size of one.
