A turtle is similar to a Computer but it has movement capabilities. This is not particularly useful but its main appeal is that you can upgrade it to a much more useful turtle. After upgrading to a turtle like the Mining Turtle, the commands "excavate" (mines a certain area down, such as excavate 3 will mine a 3x3 block going down) and "tunnel" (mines a 3 wide, 2 high tunnel) are very useful. Turtles, like computers must be labeled for their programs to save. To do this type 'label set "Name"'  This will name the turtle and it will no longer stack, all programs saved to the turtle will be kept without the usage of a floppy disk.

Turtles require fuel (if you have ultra hardcore mode set to true in the config). They accept combustible items (items that burn in a furnace) and numerous items that store MJ or EU. The command to refuel a turtle is 'turtle.refuel(amount). For example 'turtle.refuel(64) will refuel the turtle with 64 items. The fuel values for combustible items is ((fuel * 5) / 100), where "fuel" is the number of ticks a fuel burns in a normal furnace. Some examples of fuel values for items are shown below.

Note: All turtles that use diamond tools also accept ruby, green sapphire, and sapphire tools, with their respective colors of tool on the crafted turtle. It is much better to use non-diamond tools as they are much less valuable but will not be able to mine obsidian unless you have the diamond variety just as you can only mine obsidian with a diamond pickaxe.

All turtles can also be made wireless.
