[1.12.2] only run matter fabricator with scrap

  • as subject inform, is it possible to only run matter fabricator while scrap is used?

    Current installed mod: IC2

  • There is not a setting for it, but you could detect the amount of scrap in a buffer with a comparator and apply a redstone signal to the massfab ifthe amount of scrap in the buffer is too low.

  • Since you're using 1.12, sort of. Right now the Mass Fabricator will only work when given scrap, but it will take 1M EU to produce UU (ie the scrap has no bonus multiplier) and produces solid UU. It also has no recipe, nor does the UU Assembly Bench which is designed to turn the solid UU into useful things. So if you wanted you could add your own recipe for it, a recipe to convert solid UU into liquid and then just drop the energy requirement in the config for UU down to 1/6. The Matter Fabricator doesn't have any option for scrap only operation.

    If this is more of an in world only run it whilst it has it question rather than a balance one, the Matter Fabricator will output a comparator signal whilst it has scrap. So you could connect one of those, invert it (using a simple redstone torch NOT gate) then loop it back. You'll most likely need a redstone repeater as the signal will be weak if there's not much scrap left (although you might want this), but it will stop when given a redstone signal.

    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.
