Port useful Thermal Expansion machines to Robbit/IC2

Description

Due to constant demands for Robbit to have Thermal Expansion added (which is largely an IC2 duplication) we need to investigate what TE things we're missing and port them over.

Confirmed issue

I would like to propose a Robbit port of the "Igneous Extruder" machine from Thermal Expansion. This machine is one that has been commonly requested as justification for including TE in the pack, as there is currently no Robbit equivalent.

Relevant documentation:
http://thermalexpansion.wikispaces.com/Igneous+Extruder

Basically, this machine takes lava and water in, and outputs cobblestone, smooth stone or obsidian. The primary purpose is to allow a cobble-gen (or whatever) without having to use a quarry or some other silly equivalent.

In retrospect, I feel we can actually make something better than TE's extruder here. It should be possible to put in any of the mixable fluids and get a valid output. (For example, put in water and ichor, get out vilerack). I am not sure how we would differentiate the tanks in this instance... it needs a bit of thought. Certainly it is not viable to have a tank for every liquid in the game, or to have a separate extruding machine for every combination. It is likely there would just be two tanks and they just get filled up as and where needed (like with the combustion engine and generator).

Thermal Expansion Mod features (broken down): This mod seems to interact well with tinker's construct and gregtech.

Useful:

  • Sawmill: an automated way to cut logs into planks that also produces a byproduct (sawdust or resin). Can cut down old wooden things back into planks such as furniture.
    • Sawdust is used to make compressed sawdust for charcoal or made into wood chips for paper.
  • Igneous Extruder: (see above)
  • Autonomous Activator: Simulates a player's left or right click action on something next to it (e.g. milking a cow, picking berries, pressing a button, hurting a mob, etc)
  • Terrain Smasher: breaks a block next to it for use as auto farming (e.g. cobblestone factory, tree farm, etc)
  • Ferrous Ore: An ore mainly made of nickel (nickel ingots), but has small amounts of shiny metal in it, which is used in high tier machines. Can also be smelted into a ferrous ingot if tinker's construct is ever added. Combined with iron to make Invar, which is a material for various tools, etc.
  • Glowstone Illuminator: An advanced lamp that can be dimmed with different redstone strengths.

Possibly Useful:

  • Magma Crucible: Melts things into liquid: e.g. Cobblestone into Lava.
  • Fluid Transposer: Like an autocrafting table that can use liquids directly and can manage liquids/items separately.
  • Aqueous Accumulator: Like a water tower and a flood gate combined.
  • Nullifier: Basically an item/liquid void.

Useless or duplicates:

  • Redstone furnace, pulverizer, induction smelter, glacial precipitator (although it can also make snowballs), cyclic assembler, energetic infuser, every type of dynamo (new energy net), crescent hammer (tool for thermal expansion machines), All energy cells (new energy net), the 'Blizz' mob, copper, tin, lead, silver, Enderium materials and liquids (for teleporting items), all other materials really, Everything else... (but you may rip off some components 😛)

+1 for Sawmill. Magma Crucible may also be a viable thing to include. The other stuff I am less fussed about.

The table-saw (which is largely a port of the sawmill) is implemented since r4491

The Fluid Infuser (an improved port of the Igneous Extruder) is implemented since r4761.

The magma crucible port is currently in dev branch since r4766 as the "Melter" (name to be decided later), just needs a name, recipe and textures now.

Edit: Now called Elemental Liquifier, finished as of r4784.
