5 chamber breeder

  • Was just messing around today, made a breeder that can charge 8 cells fast and 2 slow at the same time. totally stable once you get it to +9000 heat. Was messing around with Gorni's design and liked it. My problem with this game is I over engineer EVERYTHING! :)


    Just heat this bad boy up in like a minute or so with the plates removed and then pop them back in and your golden:

    Currently testing to see how long it will run before the plates melt up. After I establish how long it can run I've set up an auto timer using Redpower.


    Link to set up timer is here:

    Criticism welcomed...

  • Problem


    Not to point out the obvious, but won't the water evaporate after getting to 6000-9000 temperature? Or are we intended to add water as we go alone?

    Have your water source blocks 2-3 units above your reactor, that way
    flowing water can be evaporated but the source blocks are safe

  • I edited the title, so very sorry


    and it doesn't heat up the plates and coolant cells just melt


    This last version I posted lasts for 17 minutes, then just needs to be either manually shut off or the plates/cells switched

  • You know, stating more clearly that it needs frequent cooldowns would be helpful ;)


    Also, since you're clocking it anyway you might as well just remove those single uran-iso pair, since they reduce the "efficiency" of the breeder (Number of isos bred per uran used)

  • Why you need so high heat? isotope cells recharge so fast even at 0 heat just leave them there for a minute. No need to make it complicated.

    You know they charge like ... 8? times faster at over 9k hull heat, compared to 0?

    you are using TMI isotope cells, for the real cells get depleted cells and coal dust craft, then see how long they take to charge

    I originally put that pair in there for balance issues



    The reason I put so many depleted isotope cells in there was to fine
    tune the heat so it's stable over 9000k. The depleted isotope cells
    seemed to add a small amount of heat. Just experimenting, hadn't seen
    any post for breeders that recharge a lot of cells at once. I'll
    probably mess around with it again in a few days.

  • I dont even have TMI

    Even at over 9k heat it takes half a cycle (over an hour) to fully charge an iso cell with a single uran. That is still 8 times faster than at 0 heat 8|
