Wooden Barrel

ModEx Nihilo Adscensio
TypeTile entity

The Wooden Barrel is a device added by Ex Nihilo Adscensio. It can be used to compost organic items into dirt, gather water from rain, and perform various transformations.



The Wooden Barrel can be operated manually or automatically and will accept item input from the top, liquid inputs from the side, and item/liquid output from the bottom.


Items like saplings, food, silkworms, and plants can be placed inside of the Wooden Barrel. Each organic item adds to the level of compost inside the Wooden Barrel at a varying rate, usually taking less than 10 items to fill the Wooden Barrel. When the Wooden Barrel has been filled to the top with organic items, it will quickly compost them into a single piece of dirt.


When it is raining and the Wooden Barrel has nothing above it blocking the rain from hitting it, water will quickly start to fill the Wooden Barrel.

Lava cannot be placed inside the Wooden Barrel, however; it can be placed inside of a Stone Barrel.


Placing Molten Demon Metal from Extra Utilities 2 inside of a Wooden Barrel will crash the game. Attempting to load the save again will result in additional crashing.
