I gotta admit, your video is one the the ones which make me wish I didn't use IC2 standalone. I just could never be bothered to study the mechanics of those mods as well. still awesome
The tricky bit will be the roof/ceiling. Now scaffold walls and wood/dirt roof would work perfectly. If creepers attack you'll probably lose most your hut.
I've found the wood turns to charcoal but the charcoal behaves funny. No more fires than usual.
I thought this was going to be a mislabeled suggestion thread.
If you make personal safes they behave the same as ordinary chests which don't react with other chests but have the space of two.
I built my own miner ship using earned resources. Granted mine is build out of construction foam. I use zeppelin mod to move it around but since I got cables inside the foam blocks it behaves kinda iffy and occasionally crashes and disappears. Also, rotating it makes the transformers look like they're not aligned but they are. My solar array uses a solid grid of cables which is bad for CPUs although I don't have any problems if it was used in MP it might be problematic.

Red blocks have cables inside them.
The ceiling ones are the solar array.
The ones on the outer walls are HV.
The ones on the floor are MV.
The ones on the inner wall are LV.
The ones in the floor by the miners power the miners (LV).

I seriously love this concept. I use only IC2 so I wouldn't get the most out of your ships but I may adapt the concept.
What I usually do is when I get sick of a world and want a new one is stuff as much as I can into an inventory and save it with TMI. Then reload it in another world. Your concept is a tad more realistic than my approach
This is getting added as an option with the next IC2 version. No need for a patch.
That's really good to hear. De-compiling the .class file, finding the number and changing it to a 3 is just the easy part. -Thanks zippinus
Getting it to re-compile willingly after all the errors because I don't take the time to tell it about the source files is definitely the hard part.
P.S. as far as I can tell there is no such thing as a Java compiler that will compile and just "ignore the errors."
One long night and all I have is half done altered files messing up my desktop.(not to mention all the editors)
It was also a bit Gung-Ho to try and modify one of the most complex machines in IC2 with minimal knowledge of programming, none of which was in Java.
How do I modify the Auto-miner to change what batteries it will accept?
What I want to do is modify my IC2 to allow the auto-miner to take Lapotron Crystals.
Here's what I got so far:
1) I'm looking in the IC2 zip in the mods folder.
2) In it, my money is on ContainerMiner.class being the file I want.
3) I have Java's ClassEditor program to look at the file.
I was hoping I could see where I would change the code to let it use Lapotron Crystals but I have no idea where to look.
