This mod adds a compact version of the classic IC2 Windmill. It can produce more energy as it is still within one block, but it also is a little bit more pricy. Because it is a compact version of the Windmill and within one Block, a 256 EU/t Energy farm with CompactWindmills causes less lag than a 256EU/t Energy farm with normal Windmills.
Like the normal Windmills, they are more efficient the more space is around them, so make sure to not place them in a bad spot.
They require a rotor in them to produce energy, and you have to replace that rotor. (Rotor requirement can be disabled in the config as "vanillaIC2Stuff")
They are availible in the folowing stages:
(From left to right on the image)
Extreme Low Voltage Windmill 8EU/t
Low Voltage Windmill 32EU/t
Medium Voltage Windmill 128EU/t
High Voltage Windmill 512EU/t
Extreme Voltage Windmill 2048EU/t
For the first Windmill:
O W O
W T W
O W O
W = Normal Windmill
T = LV-Transformer
O = Nothing
And for all other Windmills:
O W O
W T W
O W O
T = Transformer Upgrade
W = Windmill (One stage below)
O = Nothing
I added Localizations, so if you want to help me, please create/improve the language file of your language here .
This is a open source mod, so everybody can take part at it.
Can i turn the requirement of rotors off?
Yes, simply toggle the "useIC2Stuff" option in the config file from false to true.
Is there /Will there be a version for MC 1.4.7?
