Can you upload your save and tell us what mods you're using?
So is this addon currently in development?
Unfortunate news - an important piece of lab equipment just failed in a serious way, and so I'm probably not going to have any free time for bugfixes or SMP until next week. Will keep you posted.
Hope everything gets fixed!
Deathbyfire: The most likely culprit looks to be TMI, but I would need a full list of all mods, including the ones in the actual JAR, to be sure.
Tibbs: Depends on my schedule. I'm in grad school and so don't have much free time - I was only able to release it this weekend because I was home sick from the lab. Next release should be before the full version of Minecraft, though.
DarkClown: Extract the JAR file from the attached ZIP. This forum doesn't allow the naked JAR to be uploaded, only zips.
Riffy: SMP support is coming in version 1.0. If there's enough interest, I suppose I could make it SMP-compatible before I finish the moon dimension.
Mensrea: Vanilla IC2's tesla coil can already target players - I don't think my missile defense lasers need to repeat this functionality. (But yes, solar panels will work better on the moon)
I understand . Keep up the good work!
Ok, thanks for telling me.
How long until these new features are implemented?
I've coded a (somewhat simplified) fusion reactor as part of my Rocket Science addon - you might want to check that out. Tritium breeding and plasma-wall interaction damage are slated to appear in the next release.
(Irontygre, you worked in plasma physics? What're the odds that there would be two of us on this board?)
Great addon, Kentington! Hopefully in the future there will be SMP support .
Instead of going through all the trouble of making another Minecraft dimension (the moon) to get helium-3, why don't you instead make some sort of "Neutron Bombardment" block, into which you would place deuterium and maybe a neutral-beam injector, and have it "breed" tritium cells. You could then place the tritium cell into a "Decay Chamber", which then bred it into helium-3 cells! (I'm pretty sure that process is factually correct )
Maybe when you place this block, it would spawn a rather large (~10 diameter) torus-shaped collection of blocks around it to simulate a real fusion reactor? Or the size could be variable, depending on the amount of resources you put into it.
But there is a limit to how large BetterThanWolves elevators are.
How about some sort of block that, when you apply current to it, spans a gap, similar to a field generator but in a more linear fashion.
Also, maybe a similar mechanism that instead propels a player/mob upwards?
Just a thought.
