A cheap way of connecting blocks. As described on the start page, most blocks in OpenComputers will serve as “connectors”, i.e. components will automatically be available to any computers they are indirectly connected to. A few exceptions are the switch and the power distributor blocks, which explicitly should not connect different networks they are adjacent to. Cables are the least expensive way of building such connections over longer distances. For example, if you wish to have your actual computer in a safe place, and the screen somewhere more visible, you may wish to connect the screen to your computer using cables. Instead of… capacitors. Or more screens.

The Cable is crafted using the following recipe:

  • 4 x Iron nugget/oreberry (with Tinker's Construct)
  • 1 x Redstone Dust
