I would like for EU transportation to have a configurable tick rate, such that it can be set to only update every N minecraft ticks. For example, a scaling factor of 10 would result in 1 EU tick every 10 minecraft ticks.
To maintain similar machine utility, other factors would have to be scaled as well. An MFSU, for example, would output 5120EU packets every IC2 tick with a scaling factor of 10. Glass fiber cable would likewise have a capacity of 5120UT per IC2 tick.
Machines would continue to work at normal speeds, although their internal buffers may have to be changed to match.
