|Autarchic Basic Gate|
|Next tier||Autarchic Iron Gate|
The Autarchic Basic Gate is an item added by BuildCraft and a specific design of the Basic Gate to control and/or interact with all pipes of BuildCraft via one configurable function. The autarchic design has two additional options available to operate pipes autonomously (without engine) (see Usage). The next tier is the Autarchic Iron Gate with two configurable functions. In opposition to all other gate types, the Autarchic Basic Gate has no AND or OR version.
The Autarchic Basic Gate can be placed on all types and sides of the BuildCraft pipes with a right-click. By holding the crouch-key and right-clicking the gate can be removed without to destroy the pipe.
Note: The basic function is that the gate checks the precondition in the right slot, and, if this precondition is true, executes the option in the left slot. The bar between the left and right slot light up red when the precondition is currently True. The different to the Standard design is, that the autarchic design has two additional options (yellow marked in the table below), which are available for all pipes, but are only useful to operate pipes they need RF for example the extraction pipes.
With a right-click the player can open the GUI, which has two slots (one left, one right). Both slots can be configured by clicking in the slot. The possible options depends on the pipe where the gate was mounted:
