[Tutorial] Time Gated Nuclear Reactors

I'll just copy/paste the entire youtube description here, plus add this link:


Brief intro to lossless wrench mode; though I forgot to say that there are some items with 0% loss rate which you aren't charged the lossless use fee for; miners/pumps, transformers, storage units if I recall correctly.

The main star of this however is the gated IC2 nuclear reactor. Controlled by carefully timed redstone signaling, it stays cool while pumping out 460 eU/t for about 4 seconds out of 64; in other words about 28.75 eU/t average. This is perfect for running a fully upgraded miner (assuming you have correct transmission lines or your server admin was nice enough to enable lapotronic discharge in the miners).

The updated design of the one in question:

Also, sorry the re-dubbing sounds different. I should have been more careful while recording/mastering it but the over-dub effect oddly fits as well. ;)
