Miner stops working when I go away from it.

  • Hey! I have a question about the automated miner. I have it set up with a pump next to it and they both recieve power via a batbox connected to a LV Solar array of the compacft solars mod. Both have full power. However as soon as I go about 30 blocks away from my miner it stops working. So I have to take either the mining drill or the ov scanner or the pipes out and put them back in to restart it. Any clues? Much Appreciated mod! Best regards /Harry.

  • Behavior as normal. You'll need some kind of chunk loading block to keep the chunks loaded. (*NOT* the one from Additional Pipes, that one's unstable and un-maintained) There's two mods that I know of that have that functionality: Railcraft (world anchor) and Thaumcraft. (chunk loading seal)

    Seriously CHUNKLOADING FOR JUST 30 METERS!?!



    Also Immibis has a Chunkloader too. And i will make an electric Chunkloader as Addon for IC², as soon as i get my Lightningrod SMP.

  • an in-house IC chunk-loader would be freakin' awesome. More Tier 2 machinery to feed!


    in the hopes of invoking Steve's Law: how long til someone [a] builds an EU-powered IC chunk-loading device then someone hooks it to those huge screens in computercraft via some wireless redstone so that [code=c] you could have remote chunk loading control at the touch of a button... then bring on [d] the industrial teleporter that brings all your miner's goodies straight back to Processing Central from the remote mining outposts... :D

    Anyone knows how to use the Chunkloadforgehook properly? I have anything (energyconsumption, textures, mod) except a working Chunkloadfunction for my electric Chunkloader.
