I am newbie, learning the GregTech mod. So far I am flooded chat with many simple questions, and I decided to move them into the separate thread.
My modlist contains: appliedenergistics2, buildcraft-6.4.2, forestry_220.127.116.11, gregtech_5.07.07, nuclear control 1.7.10.07, industrialcraft-2-2.2.691, ironchest-18.104.22.1682, NotEnoughItems-22.214.171.124, OpenComputers-126.96.36.199, ProjectRed-188.8.131.52.
I started playing with IC2 and Forestry ore generation turned off, to get more "Greg Way"-ish experience.
I am in the Bronze Era now, with Coal Boiler and Alloy Smelter. Because of huge steam consumption Alloy Smelter (and lacking the way to see state of its inner buffer), I decided to generate steam, store it somehow and use it later. Firstly, I wanted to use Tanks from Buildcraft, but I did not find a way to make them output the steam in GregTech pipes, and wooden liquid pipe is too slow to feed the Alloy Smelter.
So I have three questions:
1) Is my idea too "cheaty" for GregTech? Am I supposed to do the turn on/turn off on alloy smelter, or to have multiple boilers per one machine?
2) Is there a GregTech way to store the liquids, so I am not supposed to use different mods?
3) What liquid-container-mod is best for use with GregTech?
