The Basic Wood Cutter is the first tier of Steve's Carts' Wood Cutters.



The Wood Cutter GUI

The Wood Cutter's GUI.

When mounted on a cart using the Cart Assembler, the Wood Cutter tool will construct and maintain a tree farm. The Wood Cutter tool has a three slot inventory, which should be stocked with Saplings. As the cart makes its way around the track, the Wood Cutter will plant the Saplings from its inventory on every other block on either side of the track.

Once a tree is fully grown, the wood cutter cart will pause as it removes the tree. It first clears the Leaves and restocks its own Saplings inventory, before placing any extra in any storage modules. Apples are also collected and stored. The Wood Cutter will then chop down the Wood blocks that remain.

Once the tree is fully cleared, it will plant a new Sapling in its place and continue down the track. If it has no more space for Wood, it will continue to trim the leaves but not remove the Wood until the minecart has storage room for Wood.

  • Only a single tool is allowed per cart.
  • The Wood Cutter will plant one sapling on both sides of the track every second dirt block.
  • The Wood Cutter will collect Wood, Saplings, and Apples and place them in a storage module
  • The Wood Cutter can only plant Oak Saplings, Birch Saplings, Spruce Saplings, and Jungle Saplings.
  • The Wood Cutter will only cut down Wood Blocks if it has space for them.
  • Note: If powered with a Solar Engine, leaves will block the solar panels, so the cart should have tiny or regular coal engine as an alternate power source while it is chopping down trees.
