Xyberviri's "Treachery" CASUC 1820 EU/t MK2

  • I dont like all the tin you have to use to make those cooling cells, i dont like buckets of water because they waste inventory space.



    So i created a Snow Golem Powered CASUC, using RP2, IC2 and Advanced Machines i turn golem poo into ice blocks and force feed the reactor.


    I'm also taking advantage of RP overspill control and internal routing system the tubes use. This is a proof of concept for my MK2-9-SUC EA, It runs at 4.33 EFF and outputs 1820 EU/t, and it has a 4 second cool down every 9 cycles. The effective EU is 1819 EU/t The singularity compressors have a storage capacity of 16 snowballs and 64 ice blocks The personal chest has a capacity of 54x64 for a grand total of 3776 ice blocks stored in the current design. Plus or minus what ever the retriever can hold This system currently creates too much ice for the cooling needs of the reactor. Currently it produces about 12 blocks of ice a second. This is with a back log of snowballs and a whole bunch of extra tubes that increase the delivery time to the reactor.


    Video of the system in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VY1bI6k044g


    It should be noted that all those tubes aren't needed. you can place a block breaker on top of a singularity compressor and then place a retriver next to that and have it force feed your reactor directly. this means you would have 0 entities visually.


    Also you can place a Cross pattern of block breakers so there aimed at the center block the snow golem sits on and have those timed so there is a delay for the snow to be generated.


    In this video i never see the snow disappear, nor do i see the blockbreaker fire:

    you can see my mini suc in the back ground.

  • Ice CASUC: 1
    Bucket CASUC: 0


    I would be more inclined to say
    Ice CASUC: 1
    Bucket CASUC: 1


    It's not like bucket CASUC doesn't work... If however you would say that this design is better than a bucket CASUC i could somewhat agree.
    Question is, what is the EU/t rate after those singularity compressors? They DO consume energy mind you. I think it's 16 EU/t per compressor. From what i can see there are 4 of them so that's 64 EU/t spent. 1820 - 64 = 1,756
    Now, with a bucket CASUC you are not going to need a bunch of singularity compressors (expensive stuff) and it produces 1740 EU/t in safe mode and can survive with 1,770 if you feel adventurous.


    So this design produces 16 EU/t more and costs alot more to build. (You seem to care a great deal about spending a few extra resources Rick so how did you miss that?)


    @OP


    Very nice idea, didn't even know snow golems existed let alone produced an endless amount of snow like that.

  • Ice stacks meaning only 1 free spot would be needed in the reactor. So i think in theory you should be able to run this baby:

    Unless it can only use up 1 iceblock per tick from that stack. If that is the case iam just creating a nuclear bomb on my world. Then you could go with this:

  • I spent the last 3 hours battling a Bucket CASUC and i have to say this i just GREAT! I was in doubt, that using a Mob would be a good idea, but right now im just to fed up with this Bucket Casuc, that i really want to test this. You got a world save maybe?

    No, the reactor only takes one item out of a stack per reactor tick. You need enough stacks to cool the heat added each reactor tick.
    I initially thought as you do that a number of ice would be consumed in a stack but that ended up in lava, fire and other hilarity.


    ------------------


    Another thing though about these snow golems... They where added after MC 1.9 and IC2 buffed ice in 1.337 (prior to the 1.0.0 port) and now i am starting to think that ICE is OP with Snow Golems capable of creating it soo freely.
    But then again, EE fed reactors are also OP... Except, Snow Golems exist in vanilla minecraft and as such has to exist in all games with IC2 in it.

  • Brilliant! I've been fighting a bucket CASUC for a few days now. DIdn't even know about snow golem farming! I will definitely be using this idea now....

  • Even without Advanced Machines this design is overkill, im running a neat 420EU/t right now!

  • So, after some testing, I think this is much, much easier than any bucket CASUC I've tried. The hardest challenge is going to be ballancing ice production exactly to the reactor's cooling needs. Well done, sir.

    That sucks then 1820eu/tick is the most you can get.

  • If I do this, I'm making the snow golem prison in the shape of a hamster wheel so I can say my base is powered by snow golems running in a wheel. :P

  • Wow, wicked reactor there. Almost makes me want to try a CASUC reactor.
    Didn't know that Redpower can work with a personal chest though. Last I knew Buildcraft couldn't.

    Yes ill post my test_land when i get home from lunch in a little bit with my configs for it, i play on the industrial rage server.


    I can get more than 1820 by removing ice blocks, how ever this is the only layout that gave me 1820 @ 4.33 eff and had a cool down of 4 seconds and could run more than 1 cycle or didn't require advanced redstone timeing.


    Also on the note of using a mob, you can put a inline item detector and wire that to a timer and toggle switch so that when the item detector sees a snowball go though it resets the timer, if the timer goes for more than say 30 seconds then it should kill the system, how ever you would also have to add a item detector to the ice delivery system to ensure ice is still going though.


    I have a 0 chamber SUC design with the singularity compressor being powered by the generator its feeding. if you look in this video you can see my 0 chamber suc is running in the back ground on the left.

  • Hello all,


    This is my Test land world that i put all these contraption in. there is a reactor timing circut some where in it that has a safty override circut to ensure your timing phase is always in the startup mode.


    if you have problems using this world install the mods needed to get on industrial rage, i coped the folder over to that install and it works there.


    remember to read the signs i took the extra time to write information about if you want to tweak my design.


    snappybean download my test world, there is a 1 golem->5 chamber reactor design that is in perfect homestasis, its the only other working reactor in my test world.


    uhm minus the 4k eu/t gen complex i have some where.
