I liked Space Astronomy, but yeah, not the nicest mod/pack dev in the world.

Oddly, I google Holy Moonbutt and go straight to the Mission Moonbutt pack.

Is there a preferred mod to keep track of certain notes in-game? Specifically, I'm getting started with alchemy in Embers and want an in-game reference to how much ash I need for a recipe.

Edit: I just realized I completely forgot written books exist in vanilla. I feel silly now. Still looking for an answer if it does it better than vanilla written book does.

Bibliocraft clip board is epic, with pages you can title depending on the recipe, or if you've got Computercraft in the pack, you can print out pages from it's printer. Or use a pocket computer for the same sort of purpose.

Anyone else had problems with the launcher 'failing to refresh login'? Not that I mind having to re-enter my password every time, but sometimes I'm typing around the cat and my touch-typing skills aren't 100%.

I have 'Remember me' set to green, which I hope means 'on'. >_>

Breaking into bees, whats the difference between a Apiary and a beehouse? They seem to do the same thing but 1 needs frames.

They both let your bees produce products and produce more bees, but they are different. An apiary doesn’t require frames, but if it has three frames in it it’ll produce more than triple the resources of a beehouse, varies based off which frames and less with less. A bee House is slightly better than an apiary with a single frame, in a bee house bees live three times longer per generation and ignoble bees will never die.

The really big differences however are that in an apiary bees can mutate. Bees will never produce a new species in a bee house, and producing new species is really important. Also I feel like you can’t automate a bee house but I’m not sure on that.

more so ignoble bees will always leave behind a princess after a cycle in a beehouse (everything can die) .

ignoble is that nasty trait that diminishes your breeding stock of princess(drones are never ignoble as this trait only goes down the female line) because this trait means after x time there is a chance that a cyle will not leave behind a princess in base forestry this chance is only rolled in an apiary (becuase the bee house and the alverary are immune to this problem). If a bee is not ignoble it is called pristine.
ignoble bees still have some use ,but there mostly useful for temporary more combs(ie u already have a pristine working on the desired products or lots of spare drones from the species in question) or drones

Yo trying out FTB Beyond and cant seem to get any water from the sink or reservoir into the Agricraft water tanks. Tried everything I could think of and none of the posts I've seen related to this have helped. What are the ways to do this?

What's the fastest way to get liquid XP from a tank/me storage back to the player in FTB Revelation?
(The XP tap from Mob Grinding Utils is too slow in my opinion)

Why does Railcraft unnecessarily over complicate the creation of tracks? Its like we went from a difficulty of 5 to 500.

I'd disagree and say that that's not their primary use, their primary uses are twofold as I see it.

  1. If you'd be happy with a few hundred/thousand products. Running an ignoble infinity bee in FTB Infinity can easily net you 1000+ power modules for example, more than you'll ever need from for Gendustry, similar results with skystone if you're not building with it and more.
  2. Breeding, it doesn't matter if part of the big breeding tree you're doing has ignobles, only if the output is ignoble and it's something you want forever.
That's the key, pristines aren't special unless you want something forever, an ignoble bee still lives about 150 generations on average, never less than 95. Even at Shortest that's a minimum of over seven hours, and 950 production checks, at Longest it's an average lifespan of about 81 hours and 10.6k production checks. Ignobles really don't die all that fast.

Because it increases the amount of tracks you get from the input. So instead of a flat 16 from 6 iron, you get eight rails, which become 16+1/3 of a set. Or you get steel, which gets you 16, which is half a stack plus a bit of left over.

u just said very close to what the part u quoted said . "moar products now " ,
if ur treating world time like a server or actually on a server 7hrs is a lot shorter then ud think (still quite long) for an automated build
(screw ic2 irdium without doing this though unless ur importing rf into eu lol)
