The starting material captures a Neutron and then decays into the product. I don't know how this is done in Real-Life, however i think, that the starting material is in some sort of blanket. This would be perfect to balance, because you obviously need to extract the products. Maybe you could just place plates of the starting material near a fuel rod. In any case, the Reactor won't produce any power.
I don't think that this suggestion even has a chance, but it would be cool, if you could synthesize Iridium in a Nuclear Reactor. You would need a 5x5 Reactor with extra Chambers or something like that. I dont know wich material you could start with, because IC² does not have Tungsten or Osmium.
If you currently craft a (thick) Neutron Reflector, the Reflector starts with a Damage value of one, wich means that it cant be used in some Recipes. For Example the Recip for the MT-Core. Is there a fix for this issue?
Would be cool though!
You can Macerate Cobblestone Stairs for 2 Quartz, is this a bug or a feature?
This isn't meant to be a Steam Solar Boiler.
I think there should be a alterante Recipe for Solar Panels, that outputs 8 Solar Panels
The Recipe should look like this:
GP GP GP
W W W
C CA C
GP= Glass Pane
Macerting 16 Sand gives 1 Raw Silicon
1 Raw Silicon + 12 O2 Cell gives 3 Pruified Silicon in a Blast Furnace
Throw a block of Pruified Silicon in a Block Cutting Machine to get 9 Raw Wafers
Throw a Wafer together with a Helium Bottle/Cell (from Glenns Gasses) in a Blast Furnace to create 1 Wafer!
Well OP compared to IC2.
IC is dead (atleast it seems so).
Mods Like TE,EIO and most notably Big Reactors came out of the ground and made IC useless.
I like IC more than for example TE, because of its Style and its balance.
The reasons why IC is unused:
-The Voltage System (one of the key features of IC) has been removed.
-Some machines in other mods do the same as IC machines, just better.
-Some machines/items in other mods are far OP, thats why no one uses IC reactors anymore.
The macerator should be able to macerate serveral Ore blocks.
I think a while ago it could do that, but it got removed.
Redstone and Lapis Ore: 10
Coal Ore: 3
Diamond and Emerald: 2
We have kinetic wind and water, so why dont we have a Solar Boiler plus steam turbine?
The current MOX recipe is horrible, because:
-In Real Life™ MOX Fuel Rods there are only about 7% Plutonium, not 33% like IC2.
-Balance: Plutonium is worth more than one bucket of UU-Matter.
-Also , how do you fit 9 full nuclear material in ONE Fuel Rod, so using tiny piles makes more sense
i am searching for a good 400hu reactor design.
It would be cool if it uses advanced heat vents, because i already have a good supply of those.
very good explanation!
Cells or EnderIO Reservoirs
I want to build a setup in the nether that looks like that:
Pump-LHE-Steam gen.+Condenser-Steam Turbine-Kinetic Generator
Does this make Sense, or is it better to just take a few Geothermal Generators?
It's annoying that you have to put your Hazmat suit on/off every time you want fiddle around with fuel rods/Uranium in general.
