    Where do you get blood to make endstone in tinkers?

    Nei shows it as being blood or liquid emerald, but I would say try throwing some ender pearls into the smeltery.

    Shoop Resonant Rise [Season 3] The rise of the Shoop archmage

    This sounds like a pretty cool idea, think I'm going to give it a shot. Edit: Ars Magica's mage armor boots have slowfall as a contingency, although there is a cool down period. Up to a certain height slowfall won't trigger, and the boots will simply negate fall damage. That might be tied to...

    The rebirth of IC2 ?

    I could see the plants that produce ink sacs being useful as an alternative to a mfr squidfarm. No more squid hunting for thaumcraft research, ars magica 2 spell writing and mystcraft books.

    Oh how hyped I am... (Another 1.6.4 thread)

    The issue GPuzzle is referring to is more related to compact solars and the way it went about reducing overhead. Instead of a steady 8 eu/t it produced 32 eu every fourth tick. So if you used two of them, it would put 64 eu down the line at one go. That has more to do with compact solars...

    Magic Mods are great, until something crashes and then you are back at square one in terms of research or levels.

    Those little things that irk you about Minecraft

    In newer versions it seems to me like it's faster, so this might be solved eventually.

    Those little things that irk you about Minecraft

    Railcraft's blast furnace has the opposite of the nugget problem. In order to produce enough blocks to build it, you use recipes that always leave you with two blocks extra.

    Download working 1.6.2-1.6.4 modpacks?

    The AT launcher has a few 1.6.4 modpacks. Resonant Rise immedietly comes to mind although it's still in beta so things are being added/removed/broken/fixed on a fairly regular basis.

    (Mekanism) Teach me the basics?

    One small point about heat generators, their output can be increased by surrounding them with lava. To get the most out of a single heat gen, you'll want lava below it, on the three sides the cable isn't connected to, and one on top of it.

    Thaumcraft 4 is Released!

    I kind of wish there was a little more information available about the different types of nodes. Since taint was reintroduced I'd like to know if there are certain types of nodes that will contribute to taint creation or spread.

    Never Underestimate Small Boilers!

    I see, I might have to fire up 1.6 to see if that behavior has changed since I don't know what to look for in the change logs.

    Never Underestimate Small Boilers!

    Engines *can* explode, but it's easily avoidable since even the most basic gate has the power requested condition. If the power grid is saturated, the engines shut off. Still trying to figure out how to set up the proper conditions to prevent combustion engines from exploding. Edit Again...

    Fireproofing flammable blocks

    Their output can be bumped up a bit by surrounding them with lava source blocks (one below, one on the same level as the generator in the cardinal directions and one on top. I didn't test the diagonal.)

    In unleashed 1.1.4, I'm using a 3x5x4 orchard with about 34 lemon trees to bolster my fruit juice/ mulch production, but it doesn't seem to produce many lemons. I've bred the trees to have the high yield trait active, but that didn't seem to help. Is there a better tree for this or should I be...

    With the smeltery it just takes some lava and cobblestone, and then using a chisel on the crafting grid until I hit brick. I'm a little constrained because the texture pack I'm using is currently incomplete.

    Ask a simple question, get a simple answer

    Are seared bricks from Tinker's Constructs "safe" for a general building material or will they bog the game down by checking to see if it's part of a valid smelter? Or is the smeltery controller the only block that does that check?

    How to use Slime Crystals?

    You should be able to use slime crystals in the part builder with stencils. Are you using enough slime crystals? The tough tool rod has a material cost of 3, so you'll need three crystals.
