    Simple idea: allow a feature in kinetic wind generators to lock the current turbine, preventing electrical production and stopping wear on the turbine as long as the generator remains locked. As a bonus, allow the lock to activate on receiving a redstone signal, basically allowing attached energy storage to shut down the nearby turbines when filled.

    Kentngton, I assume you didn't get my private message, so I'll share the general contents here.

    I also took your advice and touched up the space suit.
    1. Centered the air tank, extended the "pipe" into the helmet. I'm debating with myself whether I should move the tank down one pixel or keep it there.
    2. Added knee pads.
    3. Filled in a missing band near the hands.
    4. Textured the front a touch, removed reddish tint, only white-black shading, experimented with decals, but couldn't think of anything nice.
    5. Textured the top of the legs/bottom of the torso dark.

    I also whipped up this mechanical part in about 10 minutes, quite untextured. Let me know what you think of the shape. I am assuming the mechanical piece is going to be made of gold and redstone, but if I am incorrect, I can change the colors to accommodate. Because there is a limit to five uploads in any new message, you can find the mechanical part in your private messages.

    I also made sprites for the four parts of the space suit, as seen below. Hope you enjoy em.

    For what it's worth, I think you should go with Engineer's drill, it looks better than anything I came up with.

    It's going to be rough getting several small gears to work in a 16*16 area, but I'll see what I can do. Should I include some loose wires in there?

    Could I ask for more information about what the functional difference between this drill and the IC2 drill will be? I want to know what I am texturing for before I try for that one. If you don't want to spoil details, you can message me.

    I.... may have gotten a bit carried away with the space helmet. I went ahead and made an entire space suit. To try it out, replace the iron_1 in any texture pack or in the Minecraft jar. I'll edit this response with item sprites a bit later.

    For your knowledge, this mod doesn't work with Buildcraft 3.1.5. Back to 2.2.14 with me...

    Hey Nutty,

    The rubber tree textures in IC2 always bugged me, mostly the area with the resin, so I took the liberty of re-brushing them. Attached, I have uploaded my modification of your 64X and 128X textures.

    Because of file size limitations, the 128X retexture is a mediafire link. The 64X is provided below:

    If you want to, I fully release my modification of your work to you to use in whatever form you want to.
