Pretty sure mine is exactly right then :x
Any news on the bug with the node dynamo's Mordenkainen? Also I noticed that node fabricators don't have collision box is this unintentional or just unimplemented? Hope theflogat gets some free time to work on the mod soon can't wait to see what comes next even if its just fix's.
So I tracked down the issue. It's due to the way Thaumcraft reports how much Vis is in a node. Should be an easy fix.
Don't know about the collision box for the fabricators.
At this point in thaumcraft its kind of a logical step.
So the way that node stability is handled is that the node checks if there is a stabilizer under it. It does this about every 2.5 seconds. Only a stabilizer is acceptable.
Because of this, it's likely that the dynamo can not be updated to stabilize nodes itself.
Make a pull request. Thaumcraft has an option for custom pedestals for the altars, and that came from the needs of Thaumic infusion.
Actually, the more I look at Thaumcrafts code, the more I realize that you probably do not want to use stabilized nodes with the Node Dynamo. A node in a standard stabilizer regenerates Vis at half the normal rate, and in an advanced stabilizer at 1/20th. I think you are probably best off using stand alone nodes to power this thing. The Node Dynamo consumes 1 Vis every 10 seconds or so which is faster then the recharge rate of a normal, non-stabilized node. Because of the area that the Node Dynamo covers, I think you should be able to have at least 8 nodes around it without the nodes merging, and these nodes could be shared by more than one dynamo.
That said, I could see an "upgraded" Dynamo that runs on centivis as suggested earlier (Vis Dynamo?). This would require an energized node (Which I believe gains no benefit from stabilizers).
Transduced nodes need a stabilizer but I don't think the type used has any bearing on the Vis rate.
Doesn't need another essentia coil? O:
I am in all favor for the vis dynamo! would still be able to use nodes without needed to refactor for stabilization.
Actually the teaser was that I got the particle effects for essentia transfer working, so now the coils pull essentia like the infusion altar does.
Hitboxes in minecraft are... odd.. If you want them to collide right, you have to make "dummy" blocks in each spot you want collisions.
Alive, well, and getting back to work
It never did man.
Yep, I once looked into it but it wouldn't be beneficial.
Yes because it only checks the blocks in which your are standing. Thus, you have to create dummy air blocks and frankly, it is a pain.
How does the blood fabricator and blood dynamo work? there's no wiki, there's nothing. I'm at loss.
welcome back demo, Maybe you could make the node fabricator a multiblock then and have it transform using a wand like some other thaumcraft mechanics.
4 redstone energy cell + 4 advanced alchemical construct, with the actual fabricator block in the middle?
