    Fermenter to Still Ratio?

    I know that Biomass converts to biofuel at a 33% ratio, and my workshop has plenty of biomass but not enough biofuel. What is the best amount of stills per fermenter?

    TechWorld Pack seems kind of pointless.

    I thought it would be interesting to discuss the new Tech World Pack in Feed the Beast. I may be wrong, but the only difference I see is that it takes away a few mods that are not strictly technical (EnderStorage, Extra Bees) in exchange for gravity gun and charge pads. Seems useless compared to...

    Buildcraft... Advertisement?

    So I was browsing youtube to educate myself on Universal Electricity when I noticed in the top right, where they put all the ads I never want to click on, there was an advertisement for Buildcraft! It looks extremely shady, as it was flashing and said "DOWNLOAD BUILDCRAFT FREE NOW!" but it was...

    Possible to change biomes?

    I've been looking for interesting ways to generate power in my current survival world, and I decided to use Solar Turbines (Advanced Generators for IC2) and Buildcraft Solar Collectors (Advanced Power Systems for BC). Both these generators get a boost while in the desert, so is there a way to...

    Although this is not nearly as many levels deep as you can go with all the bags in FTB, it's some pretty handy everyday bagception:

    I've found the fabled holy Planks of Sengir...

    So I've seen some mention of "holy planks of sengir" around various forums but never assumed they were a real thing. Imagine my surprise when I found this... My life's goal is to craft them. Then... there will be blood. EDIT: I believe Gregtech adds them, for reasons I can't possibly fathom.

    Show Off Your Cool Creations!

    I know what you're thinking. ANOTHER "post your _____" thread? Yes. Anyways, show off any large machines/systems/piping monstrosities. I'll start with my my Enderman Death-O-Matic: It works by using a Tier 5 Soul Shards Enderman spawner in a 12x5x12 box with quicksand on the third block up. The...

    1.4.6 and 1.4.7 Compatibility

    I've seen the question of mod versions for 1.4.7 being usable in 1.4.6 many times and I thought I should answer it. YES. You can use 1.4.7 mods on a 1.4.6 version of Minecraft. 1.4.6 players can connect to 1.4.7 servers too, etc. that is all.

    How do YOU organize?

    I usually have a chest room early on with labels on the chests, such as metals and ores, cobble and dirt, BC and Forestry etc., then I move on to a huge Factorization barrel room later in the game. What do you guys have?

    Source of FTB Music?

    I've been sitting with FTB open just because I like the music on the title screen. Does anyone know where the FTB staff got the music from?

    MCEdit Alternative to Move Base

    I'm sure everyone knows MCEdit murders mod blocks that have ids it doesn't like, but I need to move my base onto another world. Does anyone know an alternative that I could use to sort of copy paste my base into another save? Thanks in advance.

    Thermionic Fabricator Automation?

    I've been hooking up my buildcraft machines to my power grid via power pipes and iron OR gates. The gates send a red pipe signal if the Has Work condition is fulfilled (I believe this condition comes from Extra Bees, which I have in.) The red pipe signal triggers a redstone signal on my engines...

    Uses for Eggs?

    Now I just built a barn. In this barn, there is a chicken coop, with a speedy wooden golem and LOTS of chickens. I'm getting more eggs than I know what to do with, so does anyone have an idea for what I could use them for? It seems wasteful to just plop them into a recycler and I don't need any...
