HV cable tooltip: big or currently intended?

    • Official Post

    It's a bug, the tooltip forgets to take into account insulation for all the cable types.

    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.

  • Oh... I thought I asked more or less this same thing a few weeks ago and was told that the only reason to add more insulation is to reduce chance of shocks, not loss, so I didn't bother going above 1x for most of my run up to my windmill farm. For that matter, I don't seem to be able to detect any losses at all, anywhere.

    I have a LV transformer producing 32v power to run my illuminators and with 8 of them going, it is outputting 2 eu/t, which is what they should consume without any losses. I have quite a bit of copper cable around my base to get the power to the illuminators which should be suffering significant losses running only 32v. I also have a 3x hv cable running from my advanced generators turbine to my MFSU, and while it is only maybe 8 blocks long, it shows the exact same energy in at the input side as out at the MFSU ( though oddly it is not quite as much at the turbine output as it should be ).

    Due to some technical limitation, the energy, that is shown in the eu reader always corresponds to the energy received on the receiving end, so if you have a batbox on the sending end, a couple of blocks of copper cables and a batbox on the receiving end, the eu reader will show 31EU/t (32 EU - 1 EU loss), no matter if you click on the sending or the receiving batbox, or on any cable.
