I have, but its a bit hard to sift through 400 pages one page at a time.

All I can figure is getting nether essence is a quest reward at some point, but none of the quests I have finished so far have led me to that. Above that, I am tying to get redstone so I can have an easier time with Botania. The need for obsidian has also been troublesome, though I have already been to the nether without gathering any.
Lava + water + vat = obsidian = essence...... there now got it???

More or less. I'm honestly surprised at how that guy whose name is on the previous page missed the nether essence and seed quests if he's already been to the nether. Likely didn't give it a good read-through like he shoulda before asking on here.

They work for me. I have a fairly complicated BC system for my smeltery that pipes out the liquids with a wooden fluid pipe, then redirects it using diamond fluid pipes into separate block casters, which in turn have their contents pulled out by BC item pipes. So many wooden engines and redstone torches... I really have to get around to making a laser crafting system.
Maybe the diamond pipes end up being a workaround for the issue. I'm using a single wooden fluid pipe on a casting table, and it eats some of the fluids.

Nether essence should appear with the other seed quests when you enter the Nether, assuming you entered it through the intended progression questline (making obsidian in a vat, as opposed to early casting of a portal with clay lava buckets for example).

Any ETA for 0.8 yet? Contemplating on restarting my lets play ... but that doesn't make much sense if 0.8 is just around the corner.

I have finally made it into thaumcraft and got the research to make golems, but everytime I create a golem(so far I've made straw and wood), it goes into my inventory, disappears, then crashes me to my desktop. When I restart and try to move the golem to a chest, I crash. I have to creatively delete it from my inventory. Anyone else have this problem?

Does anyone know why my life imbuer set on top of a zombie spawner in a chunkloaded chunk isn't working to spawn zombies? Plenty of mana in the spreader but its not sending anything into the imbuer.
Edit: Seems the imbuer is working as I am using a ton of mana, however, my hopperhock either isn't picking up items when I'm not around or my golem killing them isn't dropping items. Either way, pretty weird that it isn't working as intended.
Edit 2: Think I figured out the problem, what was going wrong, but still unsure as to the why it wasn't working properly. I've added an extra step in that my hopperhock is now putting into a vanilla chest, filtered for heads, brains, and flesh, which is then piped into my bound chest. It seems that the hopperhock doesn't want to put into a bound chest when a player is not in the area, no idea why. Only tested this while filtered so maybe if unfiltered it's fine, but since I have an endoflame farm right above this, filters are very much needed.

Flint for easy instrumentum, concrete for faster travel and a very nice road for my city, and cobblestone structure pipes which are required for the pipe plugs.
Thanks, I guess Ill just make another storage for junk until thaumcraft then. This pack seems to rely on storage until you meet x,y, or z.

Haha, just a bit. I have 3 double gold chests with separate reasons: junk, farming not in barrels, and building blocks, as well as copper/gold double chests for each mod. There's a reason there's a whole questline involving getting the different storage options. :p

Fluid transport.. any methods other than BC/Mekanism pipes? I've never used Railcraft, but it looks like there's fluid loader/unloaders and a tank cart, which might be cooler than pipes. I'd like to setup some fluid creation crucible furnaces and supply things around the base, but running pipes all over isn't inspiring me.. :)
Railcraft works if you want toy trains. I have used liquid tankers multiple times in the past. The trickiest part is scheduling (though you could just make it continuous.) Last time I set something of the sort up I had a dawn and dusk schedule (using daylight sensor) with the train held aside from those times. But I was using charcoal burning engines rather than the booster tracks for my power, so the scheduling was for an economic reason.

When given a choice of basic versus advanced loader/unloaders, advanced are better since they make track configuration easier (along with some better configuration of the process part also, sometimes.)

There isn't a lot of recent advice/examples of setting it up, but the older stuff remains mostly accurate.

Finally got all the pictures from my base together, so here you guys go, as requested.

Interesting setup. I don't use stairs in my multi-level base. I went with arcane levitators. After playing with them a bit I have decided I like them. They also have potential as up elevators for items.

In theory dafomills could blow essences over onto an arcane elevator shaft that would move multiple floors of essences up to a single collection point. Pure theory at this point.

My experience with golems is tiny. I do have one doing sapling collection from my semi-automated single 2x2 fir tree farm. He's mainly there to grab the saplings outside the hopperhock range that tend to spawn additional (and unwanted) firs. So far he's done his job well, aside from one glitch where he dropped down a floor. Had to manually move him back up to the roof.

My farming is still 95% on my starting research base, but you're inspiring me to move it into a greenhouse/tower of some sort. I'll probably do small mixed farms though, since I already have a decent amount of resources, and a steady stream of automated 10-10 seeds will produce more than I can use from a crop or two of each. Bigger plots are really only needed, IMO, for the seed-breeding program. And maybe have one or two for some burst production for specific projects (like a lot of earth essence for intense terraforming.)

Also brownstone for faster travel and roads. Put gravel in a casting basin and pour tin over it.
This reminds me... I don't think there is an essence recipe for gravel. Shouldn't there be? I think the only way to "make" it comes late with Mekanism.

I mean, we have multiple ways to make sand... and dirt.

You can cast a nether portal using lava, then as long as you have iron to light it up you're off to the nether. Bypasses some quests though, unless you are doing ALL the quests in all the chapters as you go. (In which case, you'd just make obsidian in the vat and place that...)

There wasn't but there is now. 5 earth essence in an "x" pattern.

If you follow the questbook it tells you how to make obsidian - IE the VAT!
