[suggestion] internal fueltank for generator

  • one of my big hold ups to using fuel-cans in my generators is they don't stack so i can't leave a bunch to run something and walk away like i can charcoal.


    so to give fuel cans a little nudge how about we add a fuel buffer to the normal generator. like the geogens lava buffer but for biofuel/coalfuel/superfuel. just to toss a number out there lets say it can hold 2 maxed out superfuel cans worth of fuel


    and that's it :D that's the whole suggestion you can stop reading now. uh i said you can stop there isn't anything else to this. seriously stop reading this post and type up a reply nothing past this point is useful. Y U NO STOP!

    true balance is impossible in video games the best one can hope for is to make it really hard to guess which of 2 choices are better.

  • I hope that this gets added + BC-Fuelcompatiblity, but RichardG denied it due to impossibility, even if there were already Lavapiped Geothermals (dunno what Alblaka thinks).

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

    If it's impossible, then how do BC engines have it?


    and btw GregoriusT, nice base tutorial

    Ask RichardG, he said that.


    And btw thanks.

  • Need to know Alblaka's say on it.


    Alblaka says "What?".
    You're the expert for cross-interaction, if it's possible to use BC-oil by API, there's no reason not to implement it. I'm not used to BC oil precudures though, you will have to figure out good numbers by yourselves.

  • Thats for BC-IC Interaction, but what about adding the internal fuel storage to the generator? (Not only for BC Fuel, but for IC2 Fuel too)

    i was about to say the same thing

  • Although now that i think about it, i think i know why Richard said it was impossible to do it.


    BC fuel has a static energy value for both of their liquids, unlike IC2 which can have a different array of energy value for the fuel can because 6 Coalfuel Cells or 6 Biofuel Cells aren't the only recipe for fuel that you can use in the canner.

  • THAT won't pose an issue. Even vanilla furnaces can simply store "one value".
    IC is already using that one value to supply whole cans of fuel... the number really doesn't care which value you assign to it. There won't be an issue with using one unit of BC-oil to provide X fuel points.


    Adding the ability to pour multiple cans of fuel in would be possible... But I'm not sure whether it's within the range of what the Generator is intended to do.
    How about we put this on the list for a special generator, which is meant to run off fuel, gas (if implemented) and BC oil, using said materials in a higher efficiency then the normal generator (if at all) with a higher EU output, probably about 30 EUt, too compensate for the incapability to burn simple stuff (wood, coal) as well as the fact you're using complex and limited fuel materials.

    Sounds good, and maybe it will finally shut up the complainers that say Coal/Bio Fuel isn't worth it.

    sounds awesome :D:D:D also i think either diesel generator or gas turbine will be the most appropriate names for this new gen :D

  • What sould be the Name of that new Generator? 153

    1. Dieselgenerator (48) 31%
    2. Gasturbine (31) 20%
    3. Generator Mk II (23) 15%
    4. Another hayoish Name (45) 29%
    5. TURBO! Generator (6) 4%

    I think either diesel generator or gas turbine will be the most appropriate names for this new gen :D

  • I would like have a "refinery" with, wich could different components from Gas/other fuel as I already suggested: for example, it would have multiple output because of random chance of getting each component, chance wich would be lower and lower with their rarety/energy value.


    And I think we should have tar or something else to craft bitumen/asphalt with gravel to build Industrial streets (maybe with a bonus of speed when walking on)
    A new fuel based-gen sounds very good to me, as it would be the Thrird Non-Renewable Gen (I do not count the basic gen, wich is a gen only useful when starting/playing with forestry-EE)


    Soon with Molten Salt Reactors, right ? :D
    NERF THA FUSION REACTOR!

  • As I see renewable Forestry liquids will be forbidden in that generator...
    Not a problem because it has a special generator.

  • As I said.


    Asshole still unable to lead.

    You mean unable to read.
