Every so often, I get asked if the vanilla Minecraft mod add-on “AEther Expansion” can support the addition of an ATM to the game. My answer is that it will not work at this time and has not worked in the past, but I have no reason to not mention it here since so many people ask me this exact question. You will want to make sure you install the right version of the ATM for your mod if you want it to be compatible with vanilla Minecraft. You should also make sure that the ATM that you add to vanilla Minecraft is the latest and greatest mod out there.
What is an ATM? You may not have heard of them by now. An ATM machine is a type of machine which provides you money by taking an amount of “recess cash” from you and depositing it into a special slot. These machines are very useful if you need some quick cash, but aren’t sure how to get to a local pay machine.
Why would I want to add an ATM to mymod? They are very useful in all kinds of situations, but they also can be useful for starting an income. Think about how many times you have needed an extra small amount of cash, but were hesitant to use a PayPal transaction to complete it. You can put that fear aside and use an ATM instead! This will help you in a number of situations.
Where can I find one of these machines? If you really want to get started, then you can start by visiting a few different places online. They are widely available on eBay, and most retail stores that carry video games should have them. You may also check out Craigslist and Gumtree. The best places to find a good used machine will be on the auction listings, but you may be able to find them for cheaper if you look on smaller websites. Keep in mind that the newer versions of machines are sometimes more difficult to find.
Can I attach an existing dispenser to my machine? It is possible, but you have to make sure that the dispenser will work with the kind of modem that your Minecraft mod uses. Otherwise you won’t be able to connect your dispenser, or you will have issues. Some dispensers are designed to use certain kinds of modems. Make sure that you do not have anything blocking the way of your dispenser, or you will have problems.
Will this modification break the compatibility of other add-ons? Unfortunately, sometimes people find that they actually have to remove certain add-ons to make their ATM: Additions machine work with other mods. However, if this happens to you, then you should let the author know about it. This is very rare, as almost all mod authors will let you know about any potential incompatibility. Usually, you should be able to add the new mod after the installation of the former one.
