About the Mod:

Mistlands Compatible

This mod is a combination of my own code and scaled down version of Aedenthorn's AutoFuel mod.

Credit goes to Aedenthorn for the idea and original mod.

Fuels torches, campfires, windmills, spinning wheels, hearths, kilns and smelters from items in chests or off the ground

You can adjust the config values by editing this file using a text editor or in-game using the Config Manager´╗┐.

Server Configuration

For Servers that want to control ther configuration, install on the server and clients.  
The server config will push down.

For Servers that cannot use mods, simply install this on the clients only and it will work just fine.  Clients will all need
the same settings in their config files for optimal results.

For people that run a server and don't want to verify clients turn the "verifyclients" setting off.
