    Thermal Expansion 3.0!!! No More Beta! Thanks KL!

    If it works anything like the conduits it could work on a point-to-point basis. Inventory B has space for an item, so inventory A send out items until inventory B is full. Of course, travel time could cause more than needed to be sent unless it counts the objects still in the item ducts as...

    Challenge Denied :(

    There is one flaw in your statement regarding mining the entire world Dante...Mystcraft ages. All you would have to do is set up several tall, flat ages and use multiple mining machines. Once the ages start getting too large in file size then you can just delete the age from your minecraft...

    Isn't there a way to get turtles to automate moving mining wells? Sure, they were made to use a lot more energy, but I would assume that wouldn't be much of an issue. Lemme see if I can get a video demo... Here's one of a setup using drawbridges, mining wells, and turtles.

    For producing the compress cobble can't you just use the factorization packagers that take blocks you put into them and try to craft them in a 3x3? This might not be a good idea for the lower end compressions like single and double, but might be better with triple and higher.

    Disable slime island

    In the 1.6 dev versions he added a blacklist for dimensions and a config to only generate them in the overworld. It doesn't really fix the problem for 1.5 users since the updates for it are no longer coming out, but it will help for any possible future releases.

    [1.5.2/1.6.2 Forge] Modular Furnace

    If you build it away from the wall you can have access to 24 faces without having to go above or below the furnaces, 9 on one side, 9 on the opposite side, and 3 each on the remaining sides. You could also access the top and bottom center furnaces from above and below but really there would be...

    [1.5.2/1.6.2 Forge] Modular Furnace

    Slightly off there. It takes the space of 27 furnaces, not 9. The mod looks interesting though, and I like the idea of modular machines in general, so I might keep an eye on it.

    Thanks, there was another mod I had tried but it had the side-effect of also making dropped entities invisible...

    Ask a simple question, get a simple answer

    Question. Other than optifine, is there any way to disable void fog? The TiC setting doesn't work and it's really annoying.

    Is Feed The Beast Falling Behind?

    I personally think that the biggest issue some people have with it taking so long to get to 1.6.2 (speaking of, aren't they releasing a 1.6.3?) has more to do with the new fluid system in Forge written my KingLemming. I personally believe that single addition alone is worth the update to 1.6...

    Tinker's Contruct Info

    Here's how Lapis works in tools. If you stick a single piece of Lapis to get Luck, while you use the tool it will gain more points towards lapis and give fortune and luck. It does this regardless of the materials mined, so you can get from 1 lapis on a tool, to 450 lapis with fortune and...

    *puts revolver to head* *pulls trigger* *6 people standing around him die* Well, that didn't go as expected.

    After looking at it a bit more, yes, the Lapis is general is better with fortune, so it's just redstone where you're hurting yourself with fortune since the max you can get with fortune is 8, which is what the pulverizer gives. Still, early game I would generally say redstone is one of the more...

    Tinkers Construct good starting tools

    There a re a few things I'd like to disagree with you here on. First, if you're able to cast steel into tools you should already have a tool forge. Outside of gravel aluminum is relatively difficult to run into so you should have plenty of other metals unless you've gotten lucky, and you need...

    There's also the steel dust made via Mekanism, but that's not part of FTB either. But yes, I still think the blast furnace is the best of all the options since you can make steel using charcoal. Also, while doing the whole single lapis on a hammer to get Fortune 3 does work, it takes an...
