Redstone Fader Basic Gate

Next tierRedstone Fader Iron Gate

The Redstone Fader 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 redstone fader design has a additional option available to interact with different strength of redstone signals (see Usage). The next tier is the Redstone Fader Iron Gate with two configurable functions. In opposition to all other gate types, the Redstone Fader Basic Gate has no AND or OR version.



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.

The Redstone Fader 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 Redstone Fader design has a additional precondition for all pipes to interact with different strengths (1 to 15) of redstone signals (yellow marked in the table below).

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:

  • All options like the standard Gate (goto)
  • Additional options of the Redstone Fader Gates (goto)
