    Pipes do indeed try to move half of their stored liquid every 5 ticks, thus they move more faster and less slower, so if you are trying to get a lot to move then you want to keep it 'full' and try to restrict the flow to one direction.


    Thus 14 should be able to be on that pipe fine, *depending*on* how the pipe and its flow is set up. if set up inefficiently then yes, you will want a bigger pipe, but if set up properly you could probably even use a smaller pipe (remember, pipe moves half every 5 ticks, solar boiler creates 150 every 25 ticks and moves half every tick).

    The boilers at the far side of my system seems not to be outputting steam. They are over 3/4 full all the time and my machines are running low on steam. I used some bronze fluid pipes to handle 14 boilers. What is the problem with this?

    Here is a good way to think about it. For any given pipe, it has neighbor pipes that are either input or output pipes. When you have a long chain of pipes, each pipe has a single input neighbor and a single output neighbor. In this case the pipes usually know what to do and perform at peak efficiency. The trouble comes whenever you have 2 or more input neighbors, or 2 or more output neighbors. In these cases you do the following:
    For 2 or more input neighbors: Place an input shutter on each input side of the pipe.
    For 2 or more output neighbors: Place an output shutter on each output side of the pipe.
    In the cases where you have 2+ input and 1 output, or 1 input and 2+ output, you don't need to put a shutter on the single input/output side.
    When you have both 2+ input and 2+ output, then you will have shutters on every connected face.


    Just follow these simple rules and you'll have a slosh free pipe system.

    Do I have to put shutters on the sides where boilers are attached? I have a set up like this:
    :Glass Fibre: = pipe


    :Generator: = boiler

    What he means is that you shouldn't be putting any lava in the blast furnace. It creates the lava on its own when it has a valid recipe that it is working on.

    I just want to test if the multi-block is properly formed or not.


    Did you build it correctly? You might want to take a look at the recipes too.

    I built it like this:
    B = Bronze plated brick
    F = Bronze plated blast furnace
    A = Air


    Layer 1:
    BBB
    BBB
    BBB
    Layer 2:
    BFB
    BAB
    BBB
    Layer 3 & 4:
    BBB
    BAB
    BBB


    BTW when I manually put lava blocks in, the lava blocks disappear after a few seconds.

    lazyness

    there is no way around, i believe greg wants to remove all ic2 components/machines/process to use his own method of crafting/process, this may be seen as snobish things, but realy, from a long time ic2 is not improving much, so a "new" system that resemble but behave diferent is a good thing, also it is supose to be more "balanced" , so expect gregtech =\= IC2 vanilla .

    So there is no way to craft Water Mill/Wind Mill/Geothermal generator/Thermal generator/Solar Panel? What are the ways to get energy?
