Hi all i do not know the mission statement word for word but i am sure you guys set out to make industrial craft close to real life as possible or at leased having been based on reality please guys i not having a go just pointing out some things that i have noticed with Industrial craft please keep in mind i am using Tekkit 3.1.2
First of all i really love what you guys have done with IndustrialCraft i have a lot of fun but just some things i find really strange.
I have built a Industrial City Fully working lights in all buildings streets, working reactors ect, industrial buildings with crazy machines all running from a power grid. i.e like in real life even setup power meters on peoples buildings with a fuse box using lever and a Tranformer.
that works fine and looks good, but i have a building that usings multiple transformers and i found a really odd thing about them, if you connect a HV transformer then a MV-Transformer you get what you would expect HV been steped down to MV voltage however if you add a HV to MV back to HV you get HV with out using any redstone? i found that odd because transformers dont work that way basically if you where to do that you would get a lower voltage ( EU )
how ever if you pulsed the Transformer or given redstone to the last transformer been a HV that would make more sence as it would turn the transformer into a Invertor thus increasing the voltage back to HV at the cost of current.
My question is this, is this a oversight in the way transformers work or was it done on purpose to make it simple for people?.
Second thing i have noticed i really like luminators especially for car parks in my city where 1 block between each level is the max i can have and with foam i can cover the wires in a foam block, but i notice they not put out light on the tile it self but when they run low they flash and emit light.(please note i am talking about the block it self not the surrounding light that they Emit as that does work fine.
Question is that a bug or oversight as well?
I think it would be nice if the block lit up like the RED power lamp blocks, but keeped in its tile form as that is so handy.
Industrial Information Panels.
LOVE THEM i use them as meters on buildings and to monitor reactors.
is it possible to make a none Wireless version where u place a physical sensor on the reactor or MFSU ( or anyother EU storage ) and use a wire IE redstone or redpowers insulated wires?
Reason, i have two monitoring stations for my Reactor one near the reactor the other in the office block above the reactor (100 blocks+ ) as my rector is underground.
Thank you for the long read, sorry for my grammer as its not my skill. LOL.
Keep up the great work with Industrial Craft and i will keep making crazy machines that may destroy the world and completely add to global warming....
Final ask is there a possibilty to convert EU to blue Electric used in the Red Power Mod and another block in reverse?.
