I’m very pleased to announce the release of BuildCraft 3.1.0 – the first release implementing blueprints and thus completing the initial mission of BuildCraft! Check out the tutorial video:
Needless to say, this is very beta. However, a lot of effort has been put into providing a flexible blueprint format and API – so that part should converge pretty soon. If you would like to enable blueprint capabilities to your mod and what I provide is not enough, let me know!
Anyway, here’s the changelog:
#10 blueprint library
Blueprints and templates can now be stored in a library.
#17 implement an animation for building / removing block
A robot animation has been implemented for blocks adding and removing blocks
#75 create a new “silicon” mod
Silicon-related objects (laser and assembly tables, crafting pipe wire and gates) have been moved to a separate part of the mod, making logic gates clearly optional.
#81 fix liquid returning to refinery
Recipes for refineries can now be specified through an interface, preventing to get anything else.
#86 create a structure pipe
A structure pipe has been added, holding wire and gates, and having the ability to connect wires to any kind of pipe.

#109 remove hard-coded height limits
