Suggestion: Auto tree tapper

  • Another idea. This is a machine that you would place next to a rubber tree resin tap. As soon as the resin tap is full, the machine will automatically tap the tree and spit out the resin into a chest or just into the air if there was no chest. Since it performs such a simple task, it should have an energy usage of about 1EU.

  • what 5 EU/S o.O
    then you need around 2 generators per tree


    But anyways ... i don´t like the idea, sure automatics factories with bc are fine (and the other stuff you can do with this) but that were a way to easy

    Industrialcraft² :3² :D

  • I think the way it should work is you place one next to a tree and it automatically instataps the tree for 1EU/sec. Then you could combine it with chests and BC pipes to create an automatic sticky resin farm. Including automatic smelting and such.

    It has become a little stubbly. Implement facial hair growth in IC²? Vision continuously grows more furry until you shave. (approx once every 2 minecraft days ;P)

    Check out Factorio- A game where you build a factory from scratch.

    it would probably have to be placed next to a hole-y tree block. This way, using pistons, you could create resin flowers... I'm not sure how OPed such a device should be, I mean harvesting resin isnt the hardest thing in the world if you set your farm up right....
