Range Upgrades are a series of items added by MineFactory Reloaded. They can be used to increase (or decrease) the operation radius of MFR machines, including the Planter, Harvester, Fertilizer, Fruit Picker and Sewage Collector.
There are 11 different sizes of upgrades in total and only one upgrade can be in a machine at any given time. The 11 sizes are Lapis, Iron, Tin, Copper, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Quartz, Diamond, Platinum, and Emerald. Each tier covers 1 more block in range than the one before, meaning the Emerald upgrade increases the radius of a machine by 11 blocks.
There is also a Cobble "upgrade" that shrinks the radius.
They work by adding onto the pre-existing area covered by the machine. So for example, a Bronze Upgrade in a Planter increases the radius by 5 blocks, making the affected area 13x13 blocks (5 extra blocks in a radius = a diameter increase of 10 blocks + the 3x3 original area = 13x13). The upgrades expand the area North, East, South, West but not up and down.
However, the Harvester and Fertilizer expand only the area in front of them, where as the Planter and Sewage Collector's area moves out from the centre. N.B. The 'center point' of the working area moves away from the Harvester and Fertilizer as size increases. This means a single Harvester/Fertilizer can cover the working area of an upgraded Planter so long as they all have the same level of upgrade.
