Blue Pipe Wire


Blue Pipe Wire is one of four Pipe Wires added by BuildCraft, to transmit redstone signals between gates along pipes. The Blue Pipe can interact with following gate types of BuildCraft:

Pipe Wire Which Gate Type Can Interact
Basic Iron Gold Quartz Diamond Emerald

Red Pipe Wire X X X X X

Blue Pipe Wire X X X X

Green Pipe Wire X X X X

Yellow Pipe Wire X X X

A Diamond AND Gate interacts with all four types of Pipe Wire to transmit redstone signals. Pipe Wires on different pipe types can be connected via Cobblestone Structure Pipe.

Blue Pipe Wire can be placed with a simple right-click on a pipe, and can be removed by sneaking and a right-click. About a Cobblestone Structure Pipe the wire can change different pipe types (shown in the picture). For interaction with a gate, the Blue Pipe Wire needs to be placed on the same pipe block as the gate. Once that is done, following settings are available in the GUI of the gate

Blue Pipe Signal On Set True if a redstone signal receives the gate about a blue pipe wire

Blue Pipe Signal Off Set True if no redstone signal receives the gate about a blue pipe wire
Blue Pipe Signal Activates a blue pipe wire signal if the precondition is True

If a redstone signal is transmitted, the wire lights up in a glowing blue.
