[ADDON] [1.7.2] CompactWindmills

Screenshot:


Description:

This mod adds a compact version of the classic IC2 Windmill. It can produce more energy as it is still within one block, but it also is a little bit more pricy. Because it is a compact version of the Windmill and within one Block, a 256 EU/t Energy farm with CompactWindmills causes less lag than a 256EU/t Energy farm with normal Windmills.
Like the normal Windmills, they are more efficient the more space is around them, so make sure to not place them in a bad spot.
They require a rotor in them to produce energy, and you have to replace that rotor. (Rotor requirement can be disabled in the config as "vanillaIC2Stuff")
They are availible in the folowing stages:
(From left to right on the image)
Extreme Low Voltage Windmill 8EU/t
Low Voltage Windmill 32EU/t
Medium Voltage Windmill 128EU/t
High Voltage Windmill 512EU/t
Extreme Voltage Windmill 2048EU/t

W = Normal Windmill
T = LV-Transformer
O = Nothing

And for all other Windmills:

T = Transformer Upgrade
W = Windmill (One stage below)
O = Nothing

Development:
I added Localizations, so if you want to help me, please create/improve the language file of your language here .

FAQ:

Spoiler Spoiler


Can i turn the requirement of rotors off?
Yes, simply toggle the "useIC2Stuff" option in the config file from false to true.

Is there /Will there be a version for MC 1.4.7?
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cool, a compact solar but for windmills. About time :) No doubt someone will complain :D

Do they have at least a larger range for checking Air space?.

They are nice, great way to reduce area needed for windmills, although i'm afraid it doesn't have the same EU/t fluctuation as the normal ones does. [0 - 10 EU/t]
If it does, please tell me the source code formula .
Normal windmills formula is : Energy production = Wind Strength * (Height - 64 - Obstruction blocks) / 750 * Weather Value
Also i don't think they have the breaking formula if they produce more than Y EU/t (normal ones is 5 EU/t)

Good luck on solving those problems, I will test them if you need.
From what i could see they check for 7x7x7 area. hmm...


My suggestion :
Energy production of compact windmills :
Energy production = Y (relative number of windmills the block has compacted) * Wind Strength * (Height - 64 - Obstruction blocks) / 750 * Weather Value.
Compact Windmills only break if they achieve energy production higher than Y * 5 EU/t {So your windmills can break down into 3 parts of lower tier, while the block turns into a generator}


Make their area check the same as normal windmills + 2^X (X = tier of compact windmill) on all axis :
ULV would check for 11x9x11
LV would check for 14x11x14
MV would check for 17x15x17
HV would check for 25x23x25
EV would check for 41x39x41

About holding the extreme amount of energy those windmills would generate :
Create an EV transformer, converts up to 8192 EU/t down to 4 2048 EU packets.

Agreed, but since we are throwing space limitations out the window, I'd say it's only "fair" to do this in the name of renewable energy...

I might try it, but it seems to be very OP. The thing is, Windmills don´t really produce as much LAg per EU, and they take quit some Space and can´t be hidden. Compact ones seems to be OP.

Windmills lag more than Solars. Solars only check for Sunlight, Rain and Thunder what is very lagfree. Windmills check for Aur Blocks around them, Rain and Thunder. That is slightly more laggy.

Thats one reason to compact windmills, the way i suggested, keeping them VERY similar to compact solars [Stacking eu output] .

Now they do, depending on the stage of the Windmills.

OK, I added something more like IC2 EU generation, so it's more realistic. It now also uses the height to calculate its EU output.
Make their area check the same as normal windmills + 2^X (X = tier of compact windmill) on all axis :

ULV would check for 11x9x11

LV would check for 14x11x14

MV would check for 17x15x17

HV would check for 25x23x25

EV would check for 41x39x41

I made it a little bit different, but now it's checking a further area, the higher tier the windmill is.

Small change needs to be made, check the names of each Windmill and I am sure you will spot the problem

What about making a config so it would require steel/Refined Iron to run ? Just to prevent it to be used just to power a massfab, and I'll be fine :) (Though, the same thing would be needed for Vanilla IC²-windmills).

Soon with Molten Salt Reactors, right ? :D

Then add a config to make solar panels require coal/silicon to work (on the compact solars thread).

Also compact windmills is as op as compact solars.

Perhaps they all need a Wind turbine to run? Could be crafted like this:
_I_
_I_=Turbine Blade
_I_
I = Refined Iron
TTT
TAT=Wind Turbine
TTT
T = Turbine Blade
A = Advanced Machine block
It could then slowly take damage, slow in the Low tier ones, Quickly in the high tier ones.
Of course replace Refined iron with steel if Gregtech installed.

Yeah, I don't know if i like this idea, but maybe i'll add something like that in the future.


An other Question:

What do you guys think about toggeling between IC2 Enery output and Buildcraft energy output?

Producing BC energy without those pesky converters?
Thats nice!

How about three buttons in it?
First : [EU] {IC² energy}
Second : [MJ] {BC energy, ratio is 2.5 EU : 1 MJ}
Third : [UE] {Universal electricity energy, ratio is 1 EU : 40 J}
