Machine to make lava

  • There is one, if the latest ic2 changes did not remove water and lava replication using UUM. (See mass fabricator, scanner and replicator)


    However, that thing is extremely expensive energy-wise.

  • Seems a little too end game is my only problem with it. I want lava for Obsidian and using a UUM is waaay too difficult for that as I could just make obsidian.

  • Well I mean how Are you supposed to get it? It becomes tedious to transport lava in buckets to the upper world to make the obsidian there. I mean if you dont think it really makes sense then I guess I will just try to find another way to do it. Its not a great machine Ill give you that. I thought about making it a functionality of the centrifuge. It would make sense but then you could make endless energy so I dont think that would work.

  • The IC2 pump works great on draining the nether lava, so you're only problem is taking them from the nether to the overworld. Universal Fluid cells after all stack and can be used to put lava in the world.
    BTW, distilled water can be placed in the nether, and that makes obsidian when it hits lava, so you could make it without even needing to move the lava ;)

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.

    I see this too much.

  • I think in a recent change they changed how far it drains fluids.
    Get a universal fluid cell with distilled water and enjoy using it as a bucket in the nether :)


    Distilled water can be easily made with the solar destiller (this is a typo Thunderdark...)

    I posted it on the bug tracker when it was added, and it was meant to be fixed. So I posted it back a few hours ago.



    And the pump now empties pools at the same level as it's on. So it's actually useful now ;)

    how doe sthe pump drain .. like the miner? how far of a radius


    Also the universal cells are AWESOME!!! they take a bit to make .. but stackable and reusable.. much better then the old tin cans of yore

    Pretty sure the Miner now ignores liquid from what I heard from Thunderdark on Quetzi's stream, but never actually tried putting the 2 next to each other. The radius of the pump is big, but I never determined how big big is.


    I still like the old tin cans :P

  • buildcraft pump
    bottling plant
    hoppers
    large supply of universal cells
    powered obviously by geotermal generator
    nether portal
    everything inside quarry chunk loading
    dispencer


    home area:
    nether portal with flush area filled with large amount of hoppers
    large tank (or VERY LARGE) (or large area and flood gate)
    bottling plant
    one more quarry to keep chunks loaded



    Actually i always wanted some machine that can generate lava from stone and energy, but always delayed that for random reasons.

    Unsafe.putObject(42,Unsafe.staticFieldOffset(42.getDeclaredFields()[42]),43);

    i will add a Lava creator (will be a Smelter) use Heat + Stone -> lava ...but it is necessary energy use > 2 * energy gain in Geo Generator to prevent loop

  • You mean MUCH more than * 2 of Geo Generator, because it will create too many easy exploits making Lava that way. I bet you there will be at least one Mod that will create exploits with that.

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.
    GregTech Website
    Patreon really helps me out. If you consider funding the development of GT, so I might be able to do it fulltime, why not?
    GregTech 6, the Main Thread, Bug Reports go here too.
    I'm also on #gt-dev on irc.esper.net, if you don't want to make a Forum account just to contact me.
    (I'm there almost every day, when I'm at my own computer. Yes you can drop bugs and suggestions there too)

  • It just needs a config option so you can balance it around other mod's lava usage. 2*geo gen could just be the default.

  • I have planned 2 - 16 times more energy and 8-64 stones to create single lava *bucket* based off steam generator (accept stone dust instead of water and produce lava instead of steam, more heat - less cost, internal tank for lava 1024 buckets, can explode if overheated, "calcify" (and explode) over time, can be decalcified by redstone (that also can be melted into lava - at 2x energy cost but do not calcify).


    Actually blast furnace can melt stone into lava just fine without adding one more machine.
    If stone present istead of air cells empty cells accepted.


    exploits by other mods:
    ha-ha-ha
    There is no way to take into account every single mod in world and this is not reason to reject features.


    Its just like "we can't do this, this will upset niggers\islamists\vegetarians\someone else"

    I know one of those mods, as GregTech allows lava centrifuging for metals :D


    Aside that, make it similar to what rawcode suggested.
    Use the blast furnace, where you swap the iron for stone dust (that will up the heat cost from 1 to 50+) and obtain lava fluid in the end.
