Im Blackafiq but you can call me AlphaOmega or AbyssWrath as they are my favourite nickname. I just joined this wikia late january after downloading Buildcraft.
Buildcraft itself is an interesting mod for minecraft but after getting Railcraft together with Industrialcraft in my minecraft, playing the game has never been more interesting with Buildcraft itself. Storing liquids from buildcraft pipes into railcraft iron tanks makes it more easier to store liquid in a small space rather than having a 10 blocks high tank although it comes at a price. And with industrialcraft installed also, im able to make sand out of cobblestone without having to search for sand in a grassy or dirt environment.
So in short, mods that are linked to buildcraft may make tasks easier while playing minecraft. Try some of these mods to make minecraft a more wonderful experience to play with.
