Tech Age (techage) is the successor to TechPack V2, at first glance similar and yet completely different!
- techage is not backwards compatible and cannot be installed on a server together with TechPack
- techage is significantly more extensive, since additional mods are integrated
- techage represents 4 technological ages:
- Iron Age (TA1) - simple tools like coal pile, coal burner, gravel sieve, hammer for getting ores and making goods
- Steam Age (TA2) - Simple machines that are powered by steam engines and drive axles
- Oil Age (TA3) - More modern machines that are powered by electricity.
The electricity is generated by coal & oil power plants. The oil must be explored, extracted and transported.
- Future Age (TA4) - Electricity from renewable energy sources such as sun and wind.
Environmentally friendly electricity storage, intelligent machines and means of transport of the future
- Since the levels build on each other, all ages have to be run through one after the other
(no endless ore generation by means of cobble generators)
