    [1.7.10][LISTED] InfiTech 2 Modpack v3.2.21 [HQM][GregTech balanced hard-mode modpack]

    I'm trying to play Age of Engineering but all I think when I play is how much it pales in comparison to InfiTech2. InfiTech makes all the mods feel like they belong together as one big unified mod. Age of Engineering to me now feels like okay you HAVE to do this one mode first, then this one...

    This relates closely to something I have been wondering recently. Up until now I have focused almost exclusively on gregtech stuff and I have a LPG focused power setup. (few distillation towers crackers etc..) What are my best options now for RF generation? Can I burn GT LPG in any of the...

    I actually went solar boiler -> biodiesel (from oilsand) It's not that tough to do actually. You just charge up some batteries with a steam turbine from your solar boilers to get the biodiesel kick started and the it you just run it after biodiesel after that. From there I got a drill rig...

    You're post reminds me of a question I've been meaning to ask for a long long time. What is lignite good for anyways? It is really just a very early energy source I always ignore for better options?

    I think I may have missed it. But are there any negative effects of pollution as of yet? Tried looking through the last few posts but haven't seen anything mentioned.

    LPG!!! Just found a 303L light oil near me. Should power me all the way into Nuclear!

    Oh making plastic from oil is definitely necessary. However, till you get a distillation tower going light oil is a horrible source. They conversion of light oil to sulfuric napthalam is very poor... Better to use the light oil for energy production and use a heavier oil type for plastic...

    Yep. LPG is pretty sweet. The processing chain from light oil is very minimal and easy to setup. It can be run from the methane it produces alone with lots to spare. Leaves all that sweet LPG for what ever use you desire. A much better use of light oil than plastic production IMHO.

    Yep that too cold one I learned just recently. Kills you very fast. How do you safely transport these materials with GT pipes? I've been using eIO conduits but they are expensive...

    Your issues are almost certainly not specific to this pack. Ask your host for help. My best guess is that you either have the wrong version of forge installed or you downloaded the wrong file. All we can do is speculate with the information you've given us.

    We'rr going to have to just disagree on that one. I'm not going to be able to convince myself this is a game play mechanic. I understand the server requirement for sure that's a very different story. I stopped playing multiplayer a while back.

    Sooo I am on the same page with you that chunk loaders should be free. Having chunks not loaded breaks immersion for me. It's just a pain. Ideally all chunks would always be loaded (though that's impossible). Selective chunk loading is a performance mechanic not a game play mechanic. It...

    Actually it says that oil resources are 96x96 and 50% of these areas are empty. Not that 50% of chunks in an area are empty... So a single try per area should suffice. Can someone with more experience clarify this?

    I believe it is every 6 chunks for the oIL drill rig.

    Would processing it into Nitro fuel be better than LPG? I was under the impression that LPG/methane gave better yields for Light Oil... I didn't know you could use LV to power it! I'm using MV... I will switch once my generator is empty as LV will cut the energy cost per L in half. Also...

    I just tapped my first oil drill rig hoping to get me some sweet sweet oil to feed into my low tech nitrodiesel line! But I got myself some stuff called light oil... Looking at NEI shows a pathetic production of light fuel from this substance. So low that It may barely even give back...

    Oh so this is a viable option? I just got my first nitro diesel setup going and wasn't sure if the energy cost of oil production from wood would make it worth it. What kind of tree farm are you using?

    You have those plus other changes!? Almost certainly due to something you've changed, especially considering you're the only one with this issue. You can likely figure it out by process of elimination. If I were you I'd take a step back and ask myself if all these additions are really worth...
