The Filler is a machine added in version 1.6.5 to fill whole areas with blocks. It needs to be placed in front of a landmark to fill the area the landmark is describing. (See the landmark page for how to use landmarks). It needs to be powered by a steam engine or above.
Ingredients:- 2 x Dandelion Yellow
- 2 x Ink sacs
- 1 x Landmark
- 1 x Chest
Right-clicking on a filler brings up the filler interface. The top 3x3 area is for a filler pattern, and the resources area is where you place the materials to build with. There are 6 patterns that can be used. Patterns are made by placing Bricks and/or Glass in the top 3x3 area. When there is a valid pattern in the filler, the pattern icon will be visible in the small space in the top of the interface, and on the sides of the filler. The lights on top of the filler will also have turned green.
When the filler has finished its task, the lights will turn red again to indicate that it is finished. To start it working again on the same area, just remove and replace one of the bricks or glass from the pattern. A pick is needed to retrieve a filler once placed.
