Welcome to another guide about AE2 folks, this time we zoom in on terminals. All the things you can connect to the AE2 network… They are simple but might have a feature or two you don’t know. Terminals are most likely the first, and most used, things you will come in contact with.
You can switch between ascending (0 – 9; a – z) and descending (9 – 0, z – a)
- Standard search – The search bar is not being used unless you click into the search bar. Key E (default) can be used to close the inventory.
- Automatic – The search bar is always focused, just start typing to search. As you can’t unfocus the bar, E (default) no longer closes the inventory. (You can close it by pressing the Escape key)
- JEI Synchronized – Whatever you type in the search bar is also typed in the JEI search bar and vice versa.
- Keep – The terminal will remember your last search.
The terminal offers combinations of these, so look out for the keywords.
Ongoing crafting jobs
This button is located in the top right corner, above the slider. When you click the button, you will be shown an interface with currently ongoing crafting jobs. The button in the top right changes to a terminal icon, which brings you back to the terminal. You can also switch between CPUs by clicking the CPU button at the bottom, or cancel the job by clicking the cancel button.
However, soon you will find yourself fed up with repeatedly interacting between the terminal and a crafting table. Luckily for us, the mod author has us covered.
View cell slots
The slots on the right are used for view partitioning. This is the best explained in an example. Let’s say you make a terminal next to your smeltery (or some other ore-processing method). You only want to see smeltable ores in the terminal. What you have to do is type “ore” into the search bar and start going through all of them, just to check whether it is smeltable or not. A smart solution is the view cell. You can partition and set up it in a cell workbench. After you have done so, only the partitioned items will be displayed. This only affects what you see, not the physical items inside the network.
ME Fluid Terminal
As of the new versions of AE2, fluids were introduced into the mod. We already knew them from Extra Cells 2, but it was moved to the mod, so it has to be in this guide. This terminal shows you the basic interface of fluids that are stored in the network. By clicking a fluid with an empty bucket, the bucket gets filled. By clicking an empty spot in the terminal with a full bucket, it gets emptied into the network.
I hope this guide helps you with your mystical adventures! See you at the next one!
