The Piston mod is the original mod created by Hippoplatimus that the current pistons are based upon. It adds some new blocks and features to pistons. These are variations of the piston block. The mod allows you to extend the reach of your pistons. Normal pistons have a range of 1 block, but the mod allows you to create 2 to 4-block range pistons. Additionally, pistons can now be crafted with gold ingots as well as iron ingots, but this is highly impractical because of gold's rarity. This mod has since been abandoned since Beta 1.7 and is now outdated.
