Could someone please explain me how to use the miniature nether portal? I'm trying to transport lava from the nether to the overworld, but I can't connect fluid pipes to the portal.
Is there a reason why we don't have recipes for drill and chainsaw ? We have all the components, circuits, motors, batteries and batboxes or am I missing something?
Unfamiliar with this method. Would help to see how that's set up...
My new question for the day, is how do transport pipes work now? And do Buildcraft Cobblestone pipes still work?
Got a full blown bronze age working and trying to automate it from machine to machine to chest and then autocrafter ect. also, trying to find out how to differentiate where input / output ect is on machines now... going through the wiki isn't exactly helpful in this regard.
What i'm trying to do -
Steam Macerator - manually place product inside (ore) - Auto transport (pipes) crushed Ore to Steam Furnace - Auto Transport (pipes) the nuggets to autocraft table to make ingots - auto transport ingots to a chest (will do 2 chests once i find more diamonds so i can build a sorting pipe) and then have ingots go to Alloy Smelter and from there to a final chest.
Steam connection (fluid pipes) are connected to the back of each machine in a line. Each machine is 1 space apart. Small boilers on each side of the assembly. Vent for each machine is facing to the right side.
If you want to transport items from something that isn´t an electric machine, you´ll need to set up an item pipe between the macerator and the furnace and then place a conveyor module cover where the pipe is connected to the macerator, than right-click it with the screwdriver and set it to import. Electric machine can output items and fluids, you don´t need pump or conveyor covers for them. I´d recommend that you automate the steam machines using hoppers.
annnnnnd... i think these videos i posted are outdated... to can't find the steam generator and boiler requires hatches ect that aren't in those videos... back to drawing board to figure this one out...
*edited* of course i was looking for the wrong thing... my fault... but... now to get started, i have PLENTY of bronze and such.... no clay... need clay, WTF to find clay, i'm in a plains / scrubland / jungle cross biome with PLENTY of water sources ALL over, not a single bed has clay... WTF?!?! if we have to go through this progression, at least let the materials required be available... this... this is where i get REALLY frustrated trying to do it legit.
go figure, i post this and suddenly, next stream bed i come across gives me about stacks of clay... *rolls eyes*... this randomness is absurd
and thus, thanks to other mods i have installed...i am already at bronze age... btw, for those making mod packs ect.. i HIGHLY recommend Treasure Chest mod + Marvel Universe... Already have gold and diamonds all legit through mods. You have to actually mine / kill things that GregTech doesn't interfere with. Treasure Chests give you "rare" items when you kill one of the mobs...it's random, REALLY random, but gold / diamonds are options, as well as iron. With Marvel, you get Titanium and Adamantium ore that spawn past Gregtech buffers, but when smelted turn INTO gregtech versions that can be used to make things like wrenches, hammers (until bronze age ect) to help out... past that, you can actually use said ore to make picks and such to actually mine with... which will make life MUCH easier... not complaining about this combo at ALL... not a fan of the time consuming tedium / nerfing. I want to build / create / make pretty things, but i do want SOME challenge / thought and automated processing as well as actual tech stuff. This... seems to be a close enough balance between the two for my tastes... not the route i'd have gone with it, but functional and acceptable.
Just that you know it, you´re supposed to turn of all ore gen of other mods and generate the ores, that GT doesn´t generate by default, using the GT configs.
Also ... rly? you´re complaining about clay being to hard to obtain? Try to get some osmium
I tried to crush scheelite (yes, I was lucky to find that vein when caving) ore in a crusher using steam engine, but my setup failed to run continuously. When I insert ore blocks and connect steam pipe, engine starts moving, visually gets hotter (red or something) and at some moment stops with a "steam leak" sound. During that time, crusher crushes one ore block. Now I have a guess that steam engine receives too much steam.
Steam comes from one tank (railcraft tank, through small steel fluid pipes), distilled water goes to another tank.
Machines: bronze crusher (accepts 16-64 KU/t), steel steam engine (outputs 16 KU/t).
What would be a correct setup to crush ores using steam engine?
If it gets red and than stops, you´re inputting too much steam.
Obviously not hooking something up right... all i can figure now, i even deleted everything, installed each mod in a new folder started on a new profile in a separate location... obviously things are not as easy as they once were... guess you can't just throw a universal macerator / Furnace ect down with a 2 ultimate hybrid solar panels and have it start working? :Solar Panel: :Electric Furnace: :Solar Panel: like so. have input go in top and output in the bottom. Even tried to connect fiber cable to underside from Solar Panel and see if it needed energy input from bottom and nothing...
could you post a screenshot of your problem?
I'm aware of that.
This is why I suggested to introduce a scrap weighting system/different scap sizes and material-related energy/processing time requirements before.
Using such a system you have many ways to adjust a proper balancing especially related to UUA/UUM producing.
Well, it is ok if cobblestone or stone itself and maybe some other too easy to obtainable materials are blacklisted because of a too simple way to directly feed the recycler with them as long as there is a way to process them into something, maybe a combination of those materials, that the recycler finally accepts.
For example, why not require cobblestone to be macerated to sand and sand to be macerated to stone dust (or pulverized to stone dust with small chances to get tiny piles of some rare earths/precious metals) and only accepting stone dust as resource item/block for the recyclers?
In that case you need a high amount of energy to use cobblestone as origin material for the recyclers. Sounds that fair enough?
Some time ago, you were able to put cobblestone in the hammer machine to get gravel and put that in the recycler. Dunno if you still can do that.
Can anyone tell me, why this setup doesn´t work? Burning box should put out 32 HU/t, which is enough to power the boiler. The boiler should give out 64 Steam/t, which is enough to power the steam engine. The steam engine should give me 16 KU/t, which is exactly the amount of power that is required to crush ores in the crusher. What am I missing out?
I cant fill the boiler with a wooden water bucket. Normal bucket still works.
Graaaaaaag, you promised that you´ll implement a way to transport kinetic and rotation units ... like one or two eternitys ago. Will that ever happen?
Hi guys. I've built a nuclear reactor. Safe one, with 4 thick neutron reflector and a quad MOX cell. I didn't find a way to get uranium-235. is it available now?
But it isn't a question I want to ask. My reactor produces 28m energy per cycle. And it requires a stack of tin and coal, a half stack of copper, some iron plus the nuclear fuel. In fact, my 3 kinetic wind generators produce about 22m energy per cycle of wooden rotor. And they're required only wood and 3 iron ingots. They're also cheaper than a nuclear reactor. Yes, I know that reactor productivity depends on heat level, but... Is it fair? They're cheaper to build, cheaper to use, need less difficult infrastructure to build and have the same efficiency.
Sorry for my English. Just cry from the heart.
no, its not fair. The kinetic wind generators are just OP. Should be nerfed.
It's weird how nobody could explain such a simple thing to me. So does that mean pumping each(or half of them?) branch is the only way to do this setup?
I think so ... or use huge tst. pipes or high pressure pipes.
not every Muslim is a terrorist, but every terrorist is a Muslim.
Nope. 0.7% of all terroristic attacks in europe are islamistic, while 70% are from rightwing and about 20% from leftwings.
How about a laser to transform large quantities of electricity into heat and "transport" them? It could also be used to power high-end machine, for example in material processing, uranium enrichment or to start up a fusion reactor?
30 charcoal / min? Do you mean a RC boiler? The GT bronze boiler from what I've seen consumed like 1 coal every second.
Which version do you use? In the newer versions, the bronze boiler requires one charcoal every 2 seconds, the better boilers require more.
