    Past LV shouldnt you add more bronze boilers or steel boilers? Although in if i look back to previous single player worlds i would probably invest quite early into more blast furnaces so the steam would quite quickly be consumed now that i think about it :P

    Still with the long warmup it takes a long time for the boiler to catch up in efficiency, i would guess it would take several days untill the best railcraft boiler is on the same efficiency as a bronze boiler. For solid fuels i would say GT boiler>railcraft boiler. However i do think you have...

    Problem i find is that railcraft boilers are very slow to heat which makes them very inefficient. While a bronze boiler only has 2/3 (66,7% of HP coal boiler) of the efficiency of a high pressure coal boiler it heats up quickly. A maxed size low pressure railcraft boiler produces about 40% of...

    did a quick summary of it in the steam producers overview in the document for how many steam producers you need for LV, MV and HV turbines https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ypolb7s6aLHTMSyClcbFxEPIlYP19qZGNUgDUOqpP4Q/edit?usp=sharing Will likely go over the oil numbers this weekend Edit...

    It might be changes that has been done the recent patches, it might just also be a silly misstake :) ile try and look over when i have time. The reason why i prefer to use methane is that i prefer to focus on a few energy types at a time. So the simple reason is that since i produce a lot of...

    Would this also work for indirect heating? For instance surround the distillation tower with iron blocks that you then surround by burning netherrack. It could potentially really improve the passive setup Anyone know any guide on the pneumaticraft heat system? I feel that i dont have a full...

    Ive always find that a passive setup is way more effective as you get a higher fuel conversion efficiency. I think this one should still be possible to make https://forum.feed-the-beast.com/posts/1637252/ It should be worth mentioning that the fuel value of pneumaticraft LPG fuel has been...

    Hmm, sounds interesting. Might be worth comparing pneumaticraft generators compared to the GT generators and see if there is an efficiency gain to get somewhere. Also ive been thinking about IC2 windpower but dont remember if they are disabled in this modpack or not. Could be really interesting...

    Basically what other energy system can in some way be converted into GT energy. For instance is this possible at all? RF->?->GT It opens up the possibility to use other than GTs generators for early game. Beyond that there is also pneumaticraft that has some really interesting fuel refinement...

    So i think im gonna try a few cross mod energy systems however there is one question i must know beforehand. What energy sources can you convert into GT energy. IC2 eu can be converted with a IC2 transformer->GT transformer combo. Are there any other combination that can be done like...

    Crap, forgot that the energy content of biogas is actually 32 eu/mb not 45, that is really gonna trow a wrench into those numbers :p That should make the numbers for the low tier stuff quite close to eachother both in terms of efficiency and output. Regarding HV efficiency gas turbines: If you...

    Did in game test comparing GT distillery and fermenter run on biogas. With 1 bucket of biogas you can produce 1.6 buckets of biogas in the fermenter with a fluid heat generator. That is a loss of 1/1.6= 62.5% which is in line with the numbers i posted earlier (40000/64000= 0.625). Basically you...

    I did a LV steam to biogas calculation and setup in my calculation sheet. Also did a comparison of GT distillery compared to IC2 fermenter with GT setup being the clear winner. Overall i have to say its extremly good, probably the best early game energy source ive seen so far, Here is the base...

    If you are having a hard time finding diamonds an advice is to go hunting for them inside the abyssal stones you can find on the bottom of oceans. They will have vanilla type lapis, emerald and diamond ores in them. Alternatively you can turn 64 coal ore into 1 diamond at your tech tier. Convert...

    Im running down the numbers and the IC2 fermenter isnt all that bad now that i look into it. I looked into this way back and because of that i had a bias that it is extremly slow, however that is actually not that true in gregtech. I managed to find one of my old threads about this way back...

    Biogas by quite a lot, however its easiest to do it with leaves. Just get a shear and go to town and you will have a barrel full in a jiffy. Then all you need is a macerator, an ic2 machine for blending (cant remember name) and then a distillation tower (dont bother with ic2 one, way to slow)...

    For those that just got into LV: Did a minimalistic low tech version of the steam to methane setup. Should be perfect for those that have just gotten the most important LV machines. http://prntscr.com/cz8uie One might need to add 1 extra coal boiler at start to build up hydrogen. The drum im...

    Here im not talking about energy producing systems but rather LV processing machines. For instance usually when you make a nitro diesel production line you have to make it in LV. Since the cost for refining the fuel is not insignificant that means that if you would make it in say HV the energy...

    An interesting side effect is that if you incentivize higher tech tiers by making them better than lower tiers is that it would also solve one of the problems i usually encounter when i reach IV tier is that i have no idea of what to make with all the new power im producing. Currently it makes...

    Comment regarding if overclocking of high tech machines was removed (1:1 increase in production and energy consumtion) A problem to this is that the average power consumtion of a gregtech base would likely decrease quite a bit which would lower the need to invest into power production unless you...
