Suggestion: Improved or new (maybe multiblock) Water Mill

  • Name:
    New or improved Water Mill, possibly multiblock.


    Description:
    A multiblock structure for a new Water Mill. The old one generates a few EU (1EU/t).
    My suggestion is to create something like this:


    Or better like this:


    Because this is a current IC2 hydroelectric power plant


    And this is a real Hydroelectric power plant


    This new kind of multiblock Water Mill should generate more EU (something like 32/128 EU/t) and should be built with a new Water Mill Core block (where i put the Water Mill), some kind of Turbine block (instead of Reinforced Stone) and connected to a transformer (the block where i put the MFE)
    This is only an idea, but i think that can help a lot with EU generating, and finally the dam behind my house wouldn't be useless.


    Thanks.

  • A Watermill overhaul has been suggested many times before. Devs agreed it was needed, but they can't do any major overhaul for now since the main dev (Alblaka) is gone/absent.


    Soon with Molten Salt Reactors, right ? :D

    I doubt you'll see soon ^^. There was an addon called "Advanced Generators" in the addon section, which add advanced watermills (one called "Ocean Stream Generator" I think, checking for water blocks in a pyramid shape above, and one called the "Wave Generator", checking 200 blocks away. Those were funnier than the regular windmills, and more "realistic", but still not watermills using water weight as an energy source.

  • And if it does get a overhaul it's likely not going to be with multiblock structures.

    Well "vanilla" Waterl Mill should be used as "first", but when you need more energy and can build something more "complex", you should use multiblocks Water Mills.
    In fact my idea is more a addition than a overhaul of "old" Water Mills

  • there is no water flow in minecraft, water mills will never work like they work IRL.


    only valid option to remove watermill completely or replace of with something like RP2 provide.

    Nope. Snowden is a U.S. citizen that once worked for the NSA.
    Hence the reason why they want him back: he knows all the internals about how NSA has been operating..


    Albalka is just a German college student, who writes novels. I'm pretty sure he's creating his next piece of work in the mist of our distraction...

    Every Mod Author, in existence. And yet, you STILL say otherwise.

  • If I see that right, Alblaka might already finished studying, as I think he is two semesters farther than me (according to that one Blog Post where he stated to have SWE).

  • Hey Greg, Would you consider adding multiblock watermills into Greg Tech?
