After cleaning up some of the mess left behind from BC 7.1.2, I am happy to release BuildCraft 7.1.3 Release Candidate.

The changelog is fairly large despite having a lot of 7.1.x stuff put back into BC 7.0.x and includes things such as power adapters, new Lists, bugfixes, big Builder logic improvements and many more! (NOTE: The "Alternating RF" stuff has been reverted.)

This is a fairly stable version, though due to the changes some bugs might still occur - there may also be changes to the new Lists. Please test thoroughly!

Grab everything here!
