    Modular Powersuits Settings

    I'm trying to configure all the power consumption settings for this mod so that they make sense (since the defaults are ridiculous) but I think I've discovered a bug in that when you land with the shock absorber module installed in your boots, you actually gain energy! Why is this? No matter...

    Nether Ores don't explode now

    the config option should at least work. Then everyone would have a choice. I found the exploding ores helped give an incentive to overworld mining. The abundance of material in the nether makes it almost an exclusive thing.

    Nether Ores don't explode now

    I've mined it with regular tools. Tested multiple times in both versions of the mod. Definitely exploding ores are disabled entirely now.

    Nether Ores don't explode now

    One of the settings is that they only blow up when a player breaks them. Quarries never exploded them, pretty sure. Still, I can't get 'em to blow up at all now.

    Nether Ores don't explode now

    Hmm... So "reworked" = "removed" apparently. ;) It definitely does not explode at all now. If the exploding was too laggy for servers, then maybe a better options is to make those nasty hellfish things spawn directly from the nether ores with a percentage chance. That would be a great...

    Nether Ores don't explode now

    Hey all. I noticed yesterday that in the new version of Nether Ores, that they no longer explode if you mine them. I'm aware of the config option for this, but that config option seems to have never worked. Setting it to true or false made no difference before, and makes no difference now. Old...

    TE: Reading energy cell levels

    Well.... turns out you don't even need to use a comparator. Or a battery! Just hook up to the reactor's own internal storage which outputs the level into the rednet port!

    TE: Reading energy cell levels

    Yeah I have no idea why the RedNet cable thinks Marble is something which it can connect to. Kind of bad looking. After I clean it up and make a proper floor, I'll need to use a material that it doesn't think is a machine.

    TE: Reading energy cell levels

    Thanks. After some tinkering with the comparator and the programmable rednet controller, I set it up to read "Level <= 0" into var0, "Level >= 15" into var1, and "var0 [SR Latch] var1" into the reactor's rednet port. So now, if the battery goes below 6.25% the reactor turns on. And when the...

    TE: Reading energy cell levels

    Is there any way to do it? In previous versions, you could hook up a Buildcraft gate to it and be able to tell if it was full or not. Now the transport pipes don't attach of course, so that's not an option. What is the current method for sending a redstone signal based on the level of an energy...

    What's the best use of buildcraft fuel?

    Yes, I know it makes a lot of power. This is for advanced late-game energy usage. I'm interested in what those numbers are, and nobody seems to know. To put it literally: How many RF can I get from a bucket of fuel in a full size HP boiler, using the steam in compression dynamos - and how many...

    What's the best use of buildcraft fuel?

    I used to understand the Railcraft steam boilers fairly well but since the rebalance, I'm not sure what the best route is. My understanding is that before they used to consume much less fuel when fully heated, but now after the rebalance, they consume the same amount of fuel but instead produce...

    Infernal, Abyssal, and Oblivion Hives

    Its easy to turn attuned princesses into pristine. Just breed them until you get heaps of drones, and then force-breed the stack of drones with some random pristine princess (forest?) until its genes match.

    Infernal, Abyssal, and Oblivion Hives

    Attuned bees don't appear to be in Magical Forest either. Anybody know where the heck to find them?

    Moonstone?

    I'm getting really tired of moonstones messing up my nicely manicured lawn and home area as well. Is there some reason that this has to happen so often? Is there any way to get the mod to stop doing this?
