so, today, I accidentally went and removed my LV transformer from my wiring system and replaced it with a MV transformver, It blew up MANY HOURS OF HARD WORK, so here's a solution I came up with:
a new block
what its called: MEUS (multi-energy-unit-storage)
how it works:
the MEUS takes power from all sides except for its output side, that's wrenchable to change what way its facing and ect.
the MEUS itself has NO ENERGY STORAGE WHATSOEVER!!!
"but, what use is it if it doesn't store energy?"
when rightclicked, it brings up a GUI with a 12 slot invintory and an 'output slot'
now, when you place energy storage units 'RE batteries, energy crystals, lapatorn, ect.' into the MEUS, it uses those items to store/dispense energy.
"so whats the output slot for?"
im getting to that...
the output slot would determine what voltage of electricity would be coming from the MEUS out of its output face!
(RE battery=low voltage, energy crystal=med. voltage, lapaton crystal=high voltage,and whenever the devs come up with tier 4 energy storage items, one of those in the output slot would make it send out extreme voltage. oh, and no output slot item=no output )
EDIT: thank you, Jemulove, for your comment, what I got out of it is that instead of putting energy storage devices into the output slot, you instead place a transformer.
+easy to configure
+never have to take out/place another block to change the output!
+somewhere other than a chest to store all your high-tech crystals and lame-tin-batteries! (yeah I just dissed RE batteries HAYO)
-lower energy storage than other units (batboxes, MFSUs, MFUs, ect.)
-only takes low voltage
"what!?! only low voltage!?!"
yes, I know you sneaky troll scientists, just waiting to make infinite energy in minecraft. HAYO
"WAIT YOU HAVEN'T SAID ANYTHING ABOUT A RECIPE!!!"
fine, heres a recipe I whipped up.
calm your rage, bro, heres a more reasonable recipe.
M=machine, S=steel* L=LV transformer
note to self:
TALKING TO YOURSELF IS FUN!
*if your so low-tech as to not have steel, you can substitute it for refined iron.
this may cause your crafting table to explode and spawn bipedal ghasts that will take over minecraftia
