[Suggestion] Conservation of energy in storage blocks.

  • It always bugged me that when you break storage blocks (Batbox, MFE, MFSU) any stored energy just *Poof* Disappears.


    My suggestion, make storage blocks maintain there energy level, when you break a storage block that has power still in it, it should drop a block with a damage value similar to the way that battery's store there energy.


    I'm not sure if this is possible without base file modification but some input would be nice.


    As a second thought, would this be too over powered? would this unbalance and Nerf battery's too much?

  • This would be cool. It could work the same way Booze Barrels do, unless the fact that you lose all your energy is an intended drawback of them. Anyway, thanks for presenting this in a nice, easily understandable way. It's a good idea, and I wouldn't be against it. +1

    THIS!

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.

  • This is a good idea but... This will make storage blocks unstackable. Like Batteries/Crystals/Lapotrons. As it would need NBT Tags.


    I still don't know if NBT-Tags can be used on blocks, due to them becoming some sort of entity upon placing. With that said i don't really know if what the OP wants its actually possible.

    actually the intent was temporary unstacable, if the storage block was empty it would drop a stackable version of itself, again, similar to battery's.

    it's an oppinion, and just cause its your oppinion doesn't mean it shouldn't be discussed, thanks for the input though.

    It's possible, I think, though it would need some non-trivial changes and some testing.
    However, as already brought up, it would entirely nullify the use of portable energy storages. Why to use a battery if you can carry 10kk in an MFSU?
    Ntm it would enforce said blocks being unstackable, which again would make building large arrays, f.e. those including batboxes, MUCH more tedious.



    I could probably code the Storage blocks to create an electrically charged explosion if you dismantle them with energy inside, but I doubt that's what you want, either :3

    Me too, that would be funny, as for Nuclear Reactor. Or maybe it could only explode when the dismantling fail (for example without lossless mode or without Wrench at all).


    Soon with Molten Salt Reactors, right ? :D

    Actually... I'd like that too.. teach players that it's NOT a good idea to go ahead and feed tons of energy into one place, when you know you have to move it later..


    Hell, there's a charging bench addon for a reason... use it if you have to rotate power around like that all the time...

    Every Mod Author, in existence. And yet, you STILL say otherwise.
