150 buckets = 450 iron thats alot more than 150
I was talking about my design. Still, 450/64 means only a little more than 7 stacks. still not bad in my mind. do you not have that much iron or the copper and tin to make it in your world? I have way more than enough, as there isn't a whole lot that you need after a certain point.
Edit: As far as breeding goes, ya, it would take a lot to keep the heat constant and above the equilibrium 4000+ ~1500 or so, depending on your uranium setup. However, I believe the heat only matter for how much is actually going into the component itself, and that the hull heat doesn't matter, or at least that's what my testing has shown. Therefore, only the pattern in which the cells are in should matter. I think I could make a pattern of every other row without a problem, but surrounding the isotope cells with more than two uranium (one on the top and one on the bottom) would be extremely difficult. Not to mention that such a setup would require stopping the reactor 3 times in the middle of its operation, whereas surrounding them by 2 only requires 1 stop in the middle. Having each isotope cell only touch 1 uranium leads to no necessary stops, so it would be the easiest solution, at least to do automatically. I figure that if I'm going to have an automatic reactor, I should at the very least have something to deal with all the near-depleted isotope cells that keep popping up, especially since they seem to have about a 1/3 chance of appearing, which is fairly significant when you consider that one of our efficient reactors can get up to 4,270,000 EU out of it in the end.
Edit 2: also, I don't consider this much of an endgame reactor really, in fact, it will be the first one I build in my legit world, as its been the main thing I've been focused on. I barely even have a house in my legit world.
Edit 3: apparently deployers can't suck through tubes which they aren't connected to, even though they can suck through all other transparent blocks So I've only been able to reduce it to 2 transposers, which is still an improvement, but its still annoying.
