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
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.
Hmm.. Ok i'll wait for it. I hope to see it in game
New or improved Water Mill, possibly multiblock.
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.
any possible industrial craft weapon is just one more griefing tool...
tactical and strategical explosives will be used to raze random homes or just everything around
biological weapons will wipe farms
guns and other stuff useless due imbantum armor set
Well, servers should can disable them like nukes, but... there aren't weapons yet, so it's useles to discuss now.
Fantastic, i'm waiting for it, SirusKing
If you go to minecraft forums modding section, you will find about 50 weapon mods/page. Even through only 40 topics per page are shown. Seriously. Theres at last 1000 mods adding weapons. I've once seen a mod that adds 150 swords. 150! God damn it. just enchant your diamond sword and stop bothering modders about weapons.
I know that there are tons of weapons mod, but i've posted in Suggestion of IndustrialCraft Forum because i'd like see and use a IC2 weapon.
And i'm not asking "PLS ADD WEPONS PLZZZ I WANNA WEAPONS" i'm just making a "suggestion"
Please, WWII guns are annoying...Quote
Currently, there is NO IC² addon that is intended to work only for weapons.
Really, I wish i could use all modern weapons, like automated guns and nuclear/biological/chemical warfare, causing devastation to everything!
The only problem about Minecraft is the lack of armies, aka enough players to create a real war.
There could be an addon that allowed us to create entire armies of soldiers, spies, pilots, whatever people is needed in a war, everything controlled by AI, following your orders.
For example, A multiblock machine that allows the training and creation of soldiers, armed with weapons you create through military industries.
AI combats, different behavior with different weapons, different targets, better/lower effectiveness due terrain (biome)...
Anyway, thats just an idea which would fit the industrial concept, but it needs an insane amount of work to make it reality (code-wise).
It would be really nice, a fantastic thing.
For now, maybe Greg could add a plasmagun that uses plasmacells from Fusionreactor and causes lot of damage...
Oh, i didn't know it.
But, sure, my idea is opened to anyone.
IC2 has many features, like Automated Agriculture, Automated Mining, Nuclear Generators.
But the only weapons presents are a sword (the Nanosaber) and a Mining Laser.
Nanosaber is quite expensive to craft and use, and it can be dangerous using the laser as a weapon because you could hit your home fighting zombies.
I want to advice to add some weapons, like laserguns, energyguns or anything else more powerful than a bow..
