I see. I had the same issue regarding infernal drones. Is there a way to lure them with an artificial hive like you would forest or meadows drones?

I ended up flying around in the nether for a few minutes to find infernal hives. The modpack purports that the Nether is optional, so there probably is another way to get more infernal drones without all the random chance of losing the species.
Don't tell anyone but Jaded was good to me. Between judicious quest reward choices and random bag loot I got a breeding pair (princess and drone) of each type I needed to breed all the required bee lines. I got oblivion, ender, infernal, meadows, swamp, jungle, forest, jaded (x2), valiant, modest and some others.

"Luring bees"? whats that? I made one artificial hive for the quest, threw it away. Have no idea how it works even.

I did the same, threw away the hive after making it for the quest.

The way you're supposed to get bees in this pack is with scented artificial hives. You place one with some blocks that the species you're trying to attract likes, then wait. There's a chance that the artificial hive will turn into an actual hive of the kind you're looking for.

I got so many bee rewards that the artificial hive was completely useless to me

I can't speak for the original question, but I have a case where I have a single infernal drone, which seems quite necessary for the later bee quests, and it's a question of whether I want to go and try and hunt another few down (which is time consuming and tricky), or throw fertility 4 on it and a random princess, and hope for the best.
This is where you should go back to normal Forestry mechanics... Making an Infernal/Infernal princess/drone pair from a single drone is very simple... Just bring out your beealyzer and keep all the "middle stages" until you are done.

That's pretty much what I'm talking about, except making sure that fertility 4 is on all participants, to maximize the potential choices.

Is there a way to turn wand vis into research points? I'm out of research points and have scanned most things in my base.

Nope, deconstruction table is your only option if you have nothing else to scan (though you've probably got stuff in AE, but I know getting it out is a bit of a chore).

Thaumcraft has 3 types of "stuff" knowledge (research points), magic (wand vis), and matter (essentia). They all have their own aquisition methods, and they can't be converted from one to another.

I need to move my Big Reactor Turbine, but that turbine glass is a pain to remove is there any easy way to recover it?
Recover, as in it breaks and is lost like vanilla glass? Silk touch. Though that's rather alarming to think you'd lose so much material.

What exactly would have to be deleted, on a server, to delete the entire nether?
The Overworld is Dimension 0, the Nether is Dimension -1, the End is Dimension 1. All other dimensions are custom numbered.

I did the same, I went down to bedrock in the nether, made a floor of netherrack, placed down some scented hives and with in minutes had 4 of them turn to infernal hives. Of course after this I saw several hives around my area that I didn't see before :(

Unfortunately, I think it is The End.

But you can get to the End by crafting 9 eyes of ender together to get an End Portal tile.

There is a recipe for the end portal block (the actual portal block) so that you can get to the end. Just look it up in NEI.

not the only option at all..

the far better option is to make the bees that produce lore fragments. combine 4 into a research fragment or whatever and consume that for multiple points in all of the basic aspects.

i forget the name of the bee though.. starts with an E I think. Use NEI on lore fragments.

no problem.. it's actually much better than the decon table.. primarily because you don't have to sit there and click each time or use any materials.

just leave the bees going and you'll have tons when you need

Well, if you add mystcraft, even if you force all the world types to void world (0.10.13.1 can do that), you can still force a sky biome in the non-end void.

Just ... this might be a way to kill the dragon a second time!
