Your question made me curious. If you look in the technic folder, you'll find a file called "node_breaker.lua" I think this is what you're looking for.

Doubleclick on it, and you'll see how you craft it.

minetest.register_craft({
output = 'technic:nodebreaker_off 1',
recipe = {
{'default:wood', 'default:pick_mese','default:wood'},
{'default:stone', 'mesecons:piston','default:stone'},
{'default:stone', 'mesecons:mesecon','default:stone'},

}
})

Works also with other .lua files. Most of the times the craft recipe is in init.lua, sometimes in craft.lua and sometimes in another .lua, like here.

I heard that you are making objects for this mod that will use mesecons. Is this true? If so, will this mod eventually interact with mesecons? The two would fit quite well together.

MV copper wires will be used for next tier of machines.

Technic already has two machines controlled by mesecons signals.
Node breaker and Deployer. More will come.

What do they and zinc do? and is there any way to get rubber except for those rare trees? (pipeworks recipes aren't working on Calinou's server, so i cant get a treetap)

Pipeworks are needed by technic and recipes are provided by technic.
So ask Calinou to take a look whats goin on. By now only treetap can be used to collect caoutchouc. And its the only way to get rubber.
Zinc will be used to create brass alloy.

Hello.
I apologies for the request, it seems to be asked earlier here, but...
Can you please add items "electric lamp", "button" and "lever" to mod?
And, when you'll add nuclear reactor, could you please add new material - graphit - to make:
1. reactor control unit (increases or decreases output power).
2. making defence from radiation at uranium fuel storage and reactor room.

Also please add hits loosing feature close to uranium.
Thanks!

The new wires don't connect to the bottom of solar panels.

New Wires: they are MV (Medium Voltage) cables, they dont connect to LV (Low Voltage) machinery.

Electric Lamps: i believe someone has made one. didnt use the api though, so it didnt work.

Buttons and Levers: What do you think this is, mesecons? A hand crank would make sense. (stand there whacking it, it supplies power.)

Pipeworks: are you sure you are using TECHNIC's recipe for them, not PIPEWORK's recipe?

I have a few ideas:
-Compressor
A machine that compresses stuff into other stuff, and works at the same speed/input of a grinder. Can compress 2 sand into 1 sandstone, rather than the wasteful 4 sand needed to make 1 in crafting.

-Separator (extractor, if you will)
A machine that extracts up to 4 different types of products from one input. Can be used to remove Mythril from Doped Silicon, and separate Lead, Uranium, and Thorium from stuff described next. Possibly crafted with 2 grinders, a stainless-steel wire-mesh, and 6 stainless steel ingots or something.

-''Radioactive Oblivion''
Instead of lame Uranium ore - why not make it (just a little bit) harder to get that expensive Nuclear Reactor Fuel, in exchange for a few more awesome features? The ore looks like more of a dense ore with a stone vein in it, rather than stone with an ore vein in it. It drops 8 clumps of ''radioactive stuff'', and when each is put in a separator, it gives 2-4 Lead nuggets, 1-2 Uranium nuggets, and 1-4 Thorium nuggets - all explained next.

-Lead
A heavy element, only stackable up to 36 dusts, 18 nuggets, or 2 blocks. For use in Neutron guns (a component of a breeder reactor), and safer Radiation shielding for Nuclear Reactors/Breeder Reactors. 2 dust in a compressor gives 1 nugget, 9 nuggets in crafting gives 1 block.

-Uranium
A very radioactive element, only stackable up to 18 nuggets or 2 blocks. Can be put into a separator to give 2-4 Enriched Uranium dust, and 1-2 Lead dust.

-Enriched Uranium
A dust, that is more enriched than a Uranium nugget. Can be placed in a compressor to give 1 Uranium Fuel pellet, and 3 of those in crafting can be crafted into a Uranium Fuel rod. Dusts can only be stacked up to 36, pellets up to 36, and rods up to 1. Rods are more of a single-piece-in-a-slot device, for use in nuclear reactors, so they are not stackable and have a self-damage value (registered as tools, not items)

-Thorium
Thorium is stackable up to 18 nuggets. Placing a nugget into a separator gives 2-4 Enriched Thorium dusts, and 1-2 Lead dusts.

-Enriched Thorium
A dust, that is more enriched than a Thorium nugget. Stackable up to 36. Can be placed into a compressor to give a Thorium pellet, stackable up to 1 even though it is registered as an item (so that only 1 can be placed in each slot of the Breeder Reactor). Those pellets can be placed into a Breeder reactor, and very, very slowly, they will turn into Plutonium pellets.

-Plutonium
This is a much more efficient Nuclear Fuel than Uranium. Pellets are stackable up to 36, and crafting 3 of those gives a Plutonium Fuel Rod. The fuel rods are registered as tools, just like Uranium fuel rods. They can take 4x as much damage points as a Uranium fuel rod, but produce the same rate of energy production as Uranium fuel rods.

-Nuclear reactor
This unique generator is capable of slowly fissing Uranium/Plutonium fuel rods, to give off energy, and Nuclear Waste once the rods are used up. Instead of ''burning'' the fuel, they slowly damage the fuel rods 1 point every minute, Uranium being able to take 240 ''hits'', and Plutonium takes 960 ''hits'', each ''hit'' producing 100 EU. It must have at least 2 water nodes next to it, or it will slowly heat up (would be nice if there's a bar in the GUI that shows heat of the reactor) and upon reaching it's Max. Heat, it will turn all blocks neighboring it (AND itself) into Lava sources, and will set aflame all flammable blocks in a 5-block range). If the reactor used up all of the fuel rods in it, or the fuel rods have been removed, it will not gain any more heat, and will slowly cool down.

-Breeder reactor
A more advanced type of Nuclear Reactor. It must be properly cooled just like a normal reactor, or it will turn itself and all neighboring blocks into Lava source blocks, and set on fire all flammable blocks within a 5-block range. There are 9 slots in the GUI, the one in the center is for a Uranium fuel rod, and the others for up to one (1) Thorium pellet. Every 10 minutes, the Uranium fuel rod gains 1 damage, and there is a 1 out of 25 chance that one of the Thorium pellets inside will turn into a Plutonium pellet each time the Uranium fuel rod is damaged. The reactor stops working if there are no Thorium pellets inside it (not if the slots are empty - if the Thorium has all been converted to Plutonium and/or or there is no Thorium to convert in the reactor, it will shut down). It does not consume or generate any energy.

-Nuclear Waste
A very volatile, deadly waste product of Nuclear power. It can not be destroyed. When a fuel rod in a reactor is used up, it turns into this. These rods are only stackable up to 9, have no damage value, and can be crafted into blocks that are stackable up to 1. It can not be placed in chests or any storage unit of any kind. It can not be pulverized with the /pulverize command, as that is cheating. The blocks can only be placed, and anything within a 5-block range of them will be hurt by 1/2 heart per second, in a 2-block range 2 hearts per second. There is an ABM running on them, that will turn the waste into Lead blocks, but the chance is EXTREMELY low and it takes a long time between ABM runs. It may take more than a year for 4 blocks out of 8 to turn into Lead.

I'm not ''demanding'' these, I am just suggesting some ideas. These would be awesome if added to your mod.

Ok, then I'm guessing nuclear reactors will be one of those machines. But what do the nodebreaker and deployer do, and how can I get an injector? and i'm not sure if this is intentional, but although they LOOK like nodes, the energy crystals are just craftitems.

I propose to make something like an AND-gate that has one connection for mesecons. That would allow it to make complex circuits that would control all the machines.

Lead should be like a normal ore that would have to be smelt into ingots and so on(like iron).

And there should be a way to recycle used nuclear waste(with a chance of around 50%) and to get rid of it in a shorter time(which should be a very hard work).

To get technic working you need to install also the mods that are here called 'dependicies'. You can find them under 'mod Releases'

Only dyes surprises me, that one is part of the standard game, I thought since version 0.4.1.
