does it have to be Water SOURCE blocks for cooling?

  • hello, right now ive set up a system in my nuclear reactor, its simply a single source, about 4 blocks above the chamber itself with a piston that lets water flow all over the reactor when i want it to, but what ive been wondering is, does this have the same effect as water source blocks, being 100% around the reactor?

  • I'm confused about this myself. I could be wrong, but I THINK that jsut any water is fine. I've seen a lot of designs using flowing water.
