CPU/Server load wise... which pipes are more efficient: BC fluid pipes or GT ones?
Will the distillation tower ever accept direct oil input (as liquid)?
With this new no-EU/p-mechanic i support this idea
I can't use normal diamonds for the diamond saw blades/diamond grinders- only industrial diamonds will be accepted. WAI?
Get Crafting Guide and/or NEI in addition to see the recipes and new machine functions.
I have a question to the compatibility with Highlands and GT mod. Will GT recognize the new biomes and place the specific ores in it?
Nickel can spawn between layers 10 to 32 in the following biomes:
Extreme Hills Edge
Which are so bad that you have to use Machine Boxes as pumps to get enough steam into a Large Steam Turbine. And when you realize, that your system finally produces enough steam to get that large thingy finally going (ongoing), you'll see that the pumps eat more EU than the Turbines produces.
Disregarding dungeon drops* and assuming ind. centrifuge won't need stainless steel it seems like this should be somewhat decent:
1) get wooden tools
2) stone tools
3) iron tools
3.1) get saw ASAP
3.2) hammer, file followed by pickaxe
4) bronze tier
4.1) boiler + grinder (1.5x ore efficiency)
4.2) steam hammer (no more hammers spent on making plates)
4.3) furnace (saves fuel)
4.4) smelter (smelting tetrahedrite to copper&cassiterite to tin -> grinding to dusts -> smelting again vs smelting ingots directly. Saves time and fuel)
4.4) blast furnace, start cooking a TON of steel
4.5) compressor & extractor in preparation for electric tier
5) steel tier
5,1) generator + plate bender (2x plate efficiency)
5.2) macerator (better ore duplication)
5.3) bronze jackhammer (save on picks when mining)
5.4) get a battery charger
5.4.1) fill with RE batteries (you''ll need the batteries later anyway + it's relatively cheap)
5.4) invest ALL of steel into blast furnace (getting steel fast is crucial. you could just wait for the bronze one or make many of them but it's generally a waste of resources imho)
5.4.1) have the battery charger to feed into blast furnace
5.4.2) apply transformer upgrade to it
5.4.3) start cooking moar steel
5.5) general machinery & workshop upgrades
5.5.1) build more generators as you get more steel.
126.96.36.199) Possibly upgrade them to semifluid ones if you have plenty of oil to burn.
188.8.131.52) If in addition to oil you also have enough diamonds get the BC refinery and upgrade generators into diesel ones. Skip semifluid entirely if possible
5.5.2) assembly machine (better circuit efficiency)
5.5.3) ind. centrifuge (better efficiency for rubber)
5.5.4) extractor (doesn't need steam one)
5.5.5) alloy smelter
5.5.6) compressor (combined with previous two you can shut down your steam machines)
5.6) upgrade BF to 1.7K (aluminum)
5.7) ind. electrolyzer (lithium batteries)
5.8 ) go live in a nether for a while
5.8.1) live there until you have 46 red garnets for your first set of manganese for stainless steel (what's their drop rate again)?
5.9) get ind. grinder (even better ore efficiency, ability to get manganese from tungstate)
Thank you hoho for this simple GregTech progression - looking for something like this since we started with GregTech.
When i review the last ~25 pages, it seems Greg has lost a bit of overview in this 'new material / recipe' mess - no offense
But this: MachineX needs material X off MachineX to build itself... is that really necessary? How do you organize your techtree, Greg?
After a couple hours of work, I finally have made my Steam Turbine and Thermal Boiler set up function correctly!
Do you have a working version without TE pipes?
My BC pipes are just not powerful enough to pump enough steam into the turbine... and then its also impossible to pump enough water and lava into the boiler
Ok, some more explanation here.
The problem is not that the luminator needs 1/4 EU, its the problem for the loss on the cable.
I'll love to build industrial type building and THEN fit my tech into it. So in an industrial park/factory i have long hallways which needs to be lighted, so i have to use atleast 40-60 luminators.
You're comparision to the induction furnace can NOT fit here, since you need maybe 3 induction furnace but like types 50 more luminator - i'll let the math to you here.
Easy setup now: Many solar panels, tin cable, luminator -> disco dance blink blink show while they load up. Server runs, disco show again.
A friend on the server runs the whole thing with copper cable + lumnitor which causes when he logs in on the next day, that all 5 MFSU are empty bc the freakin lights ate all the energy + loss over the cable.
Thats SUPER annoying. Glowstone isn't an option for me, because they look like crap and use a full block instead of the neat optic of the luminator that looks like a cover.
That the lumintor kills stuff is new to me and totally uninteresting.
And please don't start a comparision on RL stuff...
Ah ok thanks.
While we have Railcraft installed and so the nearly only way to get STEEL is the blast furnace mutliblock... whats the default gregtech way to get steel early game?
Anyone tested the latest experimentel with gregtech?
I can't refine rubber from resine (?) - furnace recipe doesn't work and the centrifuge or electrolizer need electric circuits to build which need again cables with rubber isolation...
So this is the like the electrolizer paradoxon where you need chrome to craft and only get chrome from itself
Its just a light source and gettin destroyed on breaking.
Maybe increase the production costs.
Anyway howver you'll design it, i'll set it to 0 EU anway.
By making an option in the config just makes the life easier AND everyone can define what is balanced in his opinion.
Would love an option for permanent-on + no-energy-consumption/no-redstone.
Ok, here is the thing.
It doesn't really matter how far you tweak, greatly increase or decrease the cost of UUM.
As long i can drive a massfab with non-maintenance-energy it's only a matter of time (AFK-Time) on my server till i get what i want.
To get patterns I believe you need to have one of the items you want to replicate, and put it in a scanner.
This would be hard since iridium can only obtained by UUM (correct me if I'm wrong :p).
Since only Diamond and Iridium matters for me and the prices are equal to the 'vanilla' (7 UUM = 1 Iridium Ore | 9 UUM = 1 Diamond) i'm fine with thatQuote
We need better Values
Define 'better'? More balanced in what point?
Is the Energy Net fixed for 1.6.2 yet?
I have a setup with a sheep sitting in a small room on a pressure plate next to the reactor (unstable).
When the reactor gets too hot, the sheep burns and switches the reator off.
Cheap (hehee) security system.
Just a quick update for you guys.
I invested some time to de-industrialize our world to find... something that causes the lag.
Got this (see attachement) out of a tin cable. Result - no lag.
