The Equivalent Exchange alchemy mod employs a number of keyboard commands to use its new tools, which possess a variety of abilities. Here is an overview of the GENERAL purpose of each mouse button and key used to activate tools. Note that the specific effects of each tool are found on their respective pages.

Tools that are capable of firing projectiles will usually fire a projectile when you left-click. Beware, as some tools have projectile functions that can destroy blocks, cause fire or lava to appear, or just get in your way if you fire it in an enclosed or important space.

Tools that have an effect on blocks (or create blocks) generally activate when you right-click a block for the effect to take place. The exception is the Dark Matter Sword, which uses right-click for its area of effect ability (which would normally be triggered by the

key).

("Charge") The V key is generally used to charge tools. Charging a tool usually increases the power or area of effect of its projectile, right-click, R, or G effects. Depending on the tool, other effects of the tool may retain or clear the charge (for example, the volcanite amulet's R key effect has higher range at higher charges, but retains (does not negate) the charge when used. Its right-click effect places more lava when the amulet is charged, and negates the charge (reduces the tool back to an uncharged state) when used.) The exception is Swiftwolf's Rending Gale, which uses the V key to activate one of its two toggled effects.

("Release Charge") Tools that use the
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
key usually use it for an area of effect use. Some tools such as the destruction catalyst use the
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
key to activate the right-click effect with your location and the direction you're facing as the target. More often, though, the
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
key effect is a unique function which has an area of effect centered around the player. The size of the area of effect may or may not be affected by the charge level of the tool.

Tools with an effect that can be toggled, such as the Gem of Eternal Density are activated with the
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
key. Depending on the tool, this effect may or may not use fuel gradually as it is active (the amulets do not). These effects are turned on by pressing the
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
key with the tool selected, and turned off by pressing the
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
key again with the tool selected.

The Philosopher's Stone functions as a portable crafting table; pressing
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
opens its interface. As of Version 6, the transmutation table is a separate object that needs to be crafted. Limited transmutation on the Philosopher's Stone's table and by right clicking remains. The Philosopher's Stone has two functions using the C key depending on its current charge. With no charge the C key will open a crafting table anywhere in the game. With a full charge the Pstone will open to the transmutation table. This specialized crafting table uses values of items (mainly from vanilla Minecraft) to allow a transmutation to take place based on the value offered. This allows for some unique trades to take place depending on the value of the items offered.

Many tools also have passive functions that work as long as the tool is in your hotbar. These effects do not work if the tools are not in one of the nine slots available to you outside your inventory (the hotbar). They generally involve protection from some kind of hazard (such as drowning, fire, or fall damage). When active, the G key effects also count as passive functions, meaning you must keep the item in your hotbar to retain the toggle effect.

If these controls are awkward for you to use, they can be edited in the mod_ee.props file (open it with Notepad) located in your .minecraft folder (use a character to integer map to determine which number goes with the key you want to use). Be aware that the wiki will still assume you are using the default settings.

TIP:
While trying to place blocks on top of interactive devices (IE: placing glowstone on top of a energy collector to power it), hold

and then
[Invalid Include: Page not found: key]
and it will place the block instead of opening the interface.
