Damn lol, that's a lot of uranium. Still, an easily accessible 60Mil EU? GIMME GIMME GIMME.
Seeing I have RP2 installed, all I really need is my cobble gen. I already have 6 large chests full of it, and it generates a full chest in about ~7 mins or so.
Are you using the Thermometer addon from the addon section ? It helps alot to determine when something goes wrong, and also always have an emergency switch ready to shut down that pesky reactor incase all goes wrong! (ice helps as well)
I could if it was client-side, since this is SMP (with Tekkit/Technic Mod SMP beta).
Breeder info says you need about 9 buckets, maybe 10 buckets is too much^^ Also the breeder relies on water cooling, but hot breeders vaporize water near them. Put the water sources at least 5 blocks over the reactor, this way the flowing water will vaporize, but not the water source.
Too late :<
I am reading this while my reactor room is burning to the ground. I expect an explosion in just a bit.
There it goes, my 2nd breeder reactor :<
If you say you dumped the buckets in I guess you didn't wait for the heat to distribute. The HDs take some ticks to take the heat from the hull, if you input lava too fast the hull will overheat before the HDs can take that heat. If you look at the tab Breeder options on that site it tells you how long to wait after each bucket to not overheat the hull
Ahh, I did not see that. What I did was dump 5 buckets first, then added another 5 about after 2 mins and dumped them all in. I walked out with the reactor still intact. I notice it was destroyed maybe an hour later when I came back.
Alright, so I tried to run a breeder yesterday, but it blew up after I dumped about 10 lava buckets into it.
How do you actually run a breeder? I am already out of uranium (and will probably be out when I log in today), so help would be appreciated.
Alright, so I just made my first reactor in my friend's server, and it's running okay. Less EU than I'd hoped, but I'm running a 2-chamber Mark II-E EC, so no complaints. I'd like to upgrade to a single-cycle Mark II, or something more powerful, but I'd like to clarify some things:
1. Heat. Is there a way to measure this?
2. Cycles = full to empty uranium cells, right?
3. Would 2 Mark II-E ECs (http://www.talonfiremage.pwp.b…=1o10101001501521s1r11r10) be much more cost-efficient than this: http://www.talonfiremage.pwp.b…ay=1k10101001511621s1r11r
4. Cooldown time is real time, right?
5. When they say 25 water or 25 air in the reactor planner, does this mean I need to make a 5x5 space and fill it to the brim with water?
