I have a nice little IndustrialCraft setup inside a mountain in Survival mode. I'm trying to make easy, renewable energy for simple stuff at the moment. I have a bunch of watermills in a water pit with some insulated copper wire and BatBoxes for storage and energy-loss resets. I then have an insulated copper wire (with a few BatBoxes) going straight up, well above the mountain. It's ALMOST at the top of the map; about layer 124. No obstructions except for the copper wires coming down. I've attached some screenshots. Thing is, I'm getting absolutely NO power from my windmill. 0 EU/t over both tens and thousands of ticks, according to my EU reader. Have I done something wrong (I'm not great at wiring stuff) or is this actually a bug?
(Also, on an unrelated note: RedPower2 Pneumatic pipes don't seem to connect between my Macerator and Electro Furnace. I don't know if that's an incompatibility on IC2 or RP2 though.)
