Question about Miners

  • My (limited) experience is that it's the diamond drill that breaks the bank, power wise. A normal drill with OV scanner will be fine with a basic coal-burning generator (you'll be cooking a lot of trees), or a single-block reactor with 1 uranium and 4 coolant (good for about two 64-block holes with an OV scanner, which will usually generate more U than you use). Takes longer, but very portable (and it's not like you have to stand there and watch it, so I don't really care if it takes a little longer).

  • Yes, just tested it with buidcraft pipes, maybe in the next version.
