So, I can rely on the wiki site of ic2 fon the old data? I have a big ass spreadsheet, handwritten myself, for the versions BEFORE experimental, but after the rewrite of cooling systems. Can I rely on that information, or were there any changes I am not aware of?
Mkay, I was lazy. Are there any things I should be aware of, besides these mentioned in that topichttp://forum.industrial-craft.net/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=9805&pageNo=2& ?
Sirus, I see you are some Kind of lead dev for reactors? Mind telling a noob something?
I like nuclear power a lot, so i can tell you some hints.
1) All components work as written in wiki (heat vents etc)
2) MOX depends on core heat = more heat = more energy
3) MOX is for 10 000 seconds, Uranium for 20 000 ! This is very important, because the sum of heat is 2x bigger (which already caused some melting on our server, because we did not know that)
4) You can safely do 2x2 twin MOX design with 360k coolant cells around ,which are surrounded by component heat vents - no core heat changes , so good for MOX - it runs 10k seconds, generate 150M EU, 320K heat for each of 8 360k coolant cells - safe
5) Be aware to not cross 85% core heat! Reactor melts his own chambers to lava then and.....some bad stuff can happen
6) reactorplanner is not kinda working for our versions and needs;( so testing on creative singleplayer would be crucial
7) one full wall (with corners of course) of reinforced stone will cover up any explosion (I set explosion range to 20 blocks to get better security - but it won´t decrease energy of explosion, just it will stop on max range 20), however I use red or black stone bricks in second layer to get full safety. Only red/black bricks are NEARLY safe, but will evaporate at explosion and blocks around are not fully safe. However, two layers are good enough
Coolant cells can be cooled down via Vacuum freezer
and so on
