Machinery and other technologies

In Minecraft, some of the more popular mods involve the use of machines and other technologies, such as Tinkers Construct, Immersive Engineering, and Mekanism, among others. For Hytale, I’d like to see a robust yet simple machinery system that fits within the fantasy setting of the base game. For example, a set of basic parts that can be assembled in any way you see fit, much like a Lego Technic set of gears, cogs, axles, belts/chains, pulleys and other parts that interact in a realistic manner. Need a mill? Build a windmill or a watermill that can grind your flour, dyes, or other materials. You can arrange the gears to control the speed and thus the rate of durability loss versus production speed. Other machines like elevators, drawbridges, elaborate doors, traps and more would be possible. These principles could be applied to other crafting pursuits, like building a foundry or making a metal press.

I 100% agree, I've always wanted intuitive fantasy machinery mechanics. If those things are possible within Hytale's engine there is no doubt that I will immediately try to make this type of mod. Probably the biggest hurdle will be trying to rotate structures in a grid-based game, if that isn't possible I could settle for the rest of the features like pulley-elevators and mills.

I liken the gears to function like Legos, where you mount the axle into a receptacle block and then add more axles, gears, screws and other parts until you get the desired function.
