Compact Mk I 1970EU/t bucket CASUC [now with video!]

  • I noticed that I tried to attach a red wire to the reactor chamber and attach a stone jacketed wire, and the filter above the chamber would stay on, anyway to fix that?

  • This reactor design looks useful.
    By the way, if you use 4 bucket-deployers you can set the timing to 0.500 seconds

    Timer should be set to 550ms instead. because its exactly the speed Water regenerates. Also a (nonexploding) Bucket-CASUC needs at least 9 Buckets.

    Nope, you can't fix it. The filters next to the reactor chamber that has the wire attached will always get stuck on when the reactor is off.

    Sadly it took me 2-3 hours to figure that out. That's what I get for trying to think with my brain early in the morning (2am -4 am)

    Wrong! I just made one that produces 2020EU/t, 8 buckets/s, 100% uptime, -1 heat per second. 11x11x7. I'll create a thread tomorrow, when it isn't 00:00. I'll have to refine the design a bit though, got all sorts of unnecessary lights and buffer chests.

    Check out this awesome mod !

  • Of course if you want to be quick and easy with a casuc design, you can use Thermal Expansion, make alot of snow, get ice from the snow and pump it in and get 2000+ That's what I did in one of my old wolrlds

    Yeah, I made a 2020EU/t one months ago, but it was much bigger than a 2070EU/t ice one. For 2000+EU/t designs, ice is required to keep the system compact.

    Could probably be made smaller, but I wasn't thinking about size when I made that design :P

    The thing is, instead of making a 11x11x7 2020EU/t reactor, it is smaller to just build 2 of the 1970EU/t reactors I made, and you get 3940EU/t instead of 2020 :P

    A few Buckets, which are not delivered in time and BOOM! I'm too paranoid to use such Designs, because its too Dangerous and WILL explode on Chunkload sometime, even when you use very precise and nonchunkloadconfused Timers.

  • Very cool design Santi871. Could I get that tutorial on how to make it, or even just a Z level break down? I can't seem to work it out just from the screens. Also is this design SMP safe?

    Thanks, I haven't tried it on SMP yet, but it should be stable as long as you set the timer to 0.2s (some servers have it capped to higher intervals in order to prevent lag) and use a world anchor.


    I'll probably make a video today or on Wednesday, stay tuned... explaining it with just words is a bit hard :P

  • Cool, I will. On a related note, does any one know of a good high speed low drag breeder design that might be able to keep up with this reactor. I am still using Rick's http://www.talonfiremage.pwp.b…i=1m101010114010101001019 and I am guessing that's not going to cut it.

    You can make CASUC breeders aswell. Even though they won't be as fast as ones with internal cooling (9000 heat or so), it will produce more cells at the same time and requires no maintenance.
