What is Uncle Jeff’s Sensors Mod
Uncle Jeff’s Sensors Mod adds to your game 2 sensors: the original Moon Phase sensor and a new Weather Sensor. From Minecraft 1.8, the mod contains Uncle Jeff’s pressure plates. Because of the mod’s origin as just a moon-phase sensor, you might see a name to that effect in message logs, but it now refers to the full suite of sensors.
Moon Phase Sensor: Like a daylight detector, but with variable output equal to moon-phase+1 at night, zero
by day. Use this to activate a device or circuit on selected days of Minecraft’s 8-day lunar cycle. Here is its crafting (it’s weird but it has a reason behind).
G – G – G G = Glass BLOCK
rm- q – F rm = red mushroom, q = quartz flake, F = raw fish (not clown, puff or salmon)
Ws- r – Ws Ws = (any) Woodslab, r = redstone dust
Signal Strength per Phase:
Full Moon = 1
Waning Gibbous = 2
Last Quarter = 3
Waning Crescent= 4
New Moon = 5
Waxing Crescent= 6
First Quarter = 7
Waxing Gibbous = 8
Literally a pale imitation of a cauldron. The Weather Sensor emits a variable redstone current depending on
its local weather. It accounts for desert, frozen biomes, and high-mountain snow. It will not signal
indoors or underground and will display a water level inside that reflects its current signal strength, but
that’s graphics only, you cannot draw water from it.
q – i – q q = quartz flake, i = iron ingot
q – q – q
N – r – N N = Netherrack, r = redstone dust
Can ramp up and/or down when weather is changing, but the transitions are quite quick. Usually the signal
is pegged at the upper end of a weather condition’s range.
Undercover = 0
Cloudy-Desert = 1
Snow = 1-5
Rain = 6-10
Thunder = 11-15
