BUG: Crazed Blinking Mad Cows near Power Lines v1.0

  • Well I find this particular bug both hilarious and annoying. Anytime a cow gets near one of my Iron Cables carrying 2024 EU, they start taking damage and making all kinds of noise. Now by near, I mean a good 6 blocks away or more.

    It happens both on land and near insulated cables (contrary to the screenshot).

    I however only take damage when I touch the cable.

    IC2 v1.0

  • That's weird, I didn't have zapped cows but instead got zapped from a 1x insulated hv cable coming from a MFSU going into a MVT at 1 block range.
    2x stopped the zapping, I could even walk on the cable then. So if 1x already zaps me with 1 block range how comes your bare one zaps you only on touching?

    Anyways that zapping can be useful, I guess it can make a nice floor for a mob grinder XD eats maybe less power than a tesla coil, just need to keep the wire not longer than needed.

    On my install Mining Drill doesn't give off any sounds at all o.o
    Help! Somebody fix that please!
    Wait a sec... damnit.

    no idea if he was serious but either way that was damn funny xD

  • The range for zapping is always (meant to be) 1 block radius. More insulation > higher resistance against zapping. Depending on the voltage you transfer, 1x insulated may isn't enough.
    Can't explain the bug shown int he picture, though.
