IC2 version = 2.0.266-experimental
I thought I understood the mechanics of IC2 experimental EU and transferring of power properly and how cables work but this has me at a loss... So I have a IC2 experimental miner setup with tin wire going directly into it being powered by 3 generators using coal, that seems to work. I went to add 3 low voltage solar panels to the wires and all of a sudden BOOM the miner explodes along with my drill and scanner...
I almost rage quit the server I was on at the time but instead went to single player survival/creative to test and find out why this happened, even without the generators running and just using 3 low voltage solar arrays connected directly to a miner with any kind of cable will cause it to explode. Can anyone explain this to me?
There is so many inconsistencies to it also for example if you go test it out and place 3 low voltage solar arrays then the cable and then the miner, for some reason when you first do this in a newly loaded world it might not explode, UNTIL you put a drill and pipes in to to activate the miner then it'll explode, whats weird is after that first explosion now if you repeat the same steps it'll blow up as soon as you place the miner without even activating it. If you start with just 1 low voltage solar panel connected to the miner and then add more it doesn't explode, until you start it.
I don't know you really have to play with it just to see how inconsistent it is, but I don't understand why it explodes... I thought maybe i'd use a batbox to connect to the low voltage solars arrays to it and then connect the miner to the batbox but for whatever reason you can't charge a batbox with a low voltage solar array? (again confused)
I'm not trying to connect spend resources to connect solars to an MFE an then transformer it lower just to run a miner there should be an easier solution and after spending like an hour trying various things like charging a batbox or using lv transformers or mv transformers the simplest solution i came with was 3 low voltage solar arrays like before, any cable connect to a mv transformer thats connected to the miner. How that solves the problem I don't know... a low voltage solar panel can only make 8eu/t so I don't understand the exploding of the miner or the need to use a mv transformer or why they cant charge a batbox directly. #SoConfused
