    Upcoming Features (Probably in dev. versions if you want to test)

    • Super Conductive Wire

    • Power Sub-Station (Variable voltage, 3 in, 3 out power storage multiblock)
    • New Nuclear Power Systems
    • New Nuclear Fuels
    • New Recipes to make Fuels
    • New Backpack items
    • New Custom Fluid Pipes for GT to suit Nuclear applications
    • New Radioactive Materials
    • More New Materials
    • Better GT 5.9 Support
    • More x-mod compat
    • Added fluid cells through IC2 for every new fluid I made
    • Multipickaxes like the Tunnel Digger, just for lower tiers and from lots more materials

    the output is better. one can get tons of stuff from the oil in D. tower, not just fuel: plastic, explosives and such things. 5.9 makes things more difficult and it gives a reason to have technologi-progress regarding the generators.
    Btw. Wind is boring and OP:P

    Hmm, probably will require a bit of minetweaker maintenance on behalf of everything else tweaked. New technologies means other things can be retired (Refinery as an example)
    But wind is so cheap, while I am oh so poor D:< (Plus, They're a tad modded as a result of my meddling so they degrade quicker and produce less KU/KE. (Not sure if it's units or energy it's measured in))

    Still, I'm contemplating upgrading to .9 though.

    Can I not just use a BC refinery on the oil?
    Don't need charcoal, I run on the power of the wind. ;)

    I'm asking more of a technical question still;
    What benefits does having Forestry 4 API support bring? :Plantball:
    5.9 Supports it from an early changelog however 5.8 doesn't at all yet works fine (Though I imagine Bees will/are/were broken as a result but that's one of the few things I didn't test)

    Recipes can and probably will be changed, but the other changes about efficiency were still nice to know about. :)

    yes .9 works with both BC and forestry 4.2, in fact there are GT bees.

    Not what I want to know, I read the changelogs and am quite aware..

    I'm asking should I bother with the update? .8 is working fine on my test server without the Forest 4 or BC 7 support.. (Though with The latest versions of each respective mod)
    Just wanting to know what the benefits are and if I should change it before going live with the latest update for my pack which is moving Forest and BC to their latest versions up from F3 and BC6.

    There is one way. Overmind hacked the Enum using Reflection to add his own stuff. No Idea how he did that and also no idea how long he takes to reply to things if you ask him.

    Will have a look & see if he can be found lurking. Ty for the heads up Greg.

    Any good servers still alive? I want to see how others progress and have set-up to help figure out the point 9 branch and some of the higher aspect in general. Also is they a gt machine to work with ic2 fluid reactors to generate either power or steam a bit more efficiently?

    I'll be updating my Gregtech server to the .9 branch once I can confirm it's where I should be.

    So my question is simple:
    If you've got the latest versions of Forestry and Buildcraft, I Should update and
    be using the GT5u 5.9 branch instead of the BC6/F3 GT5u .8 branch, Correct? As the latest version of JasonMcRay's Infitech2 pack
    from github had .8 but .9 has support for the new APIs. (Tested his pack and it works fine so I only ask if it's worth updating my own) Simply
    wondering, thanks.
