    Because you're not searching for packs that contain immersive railroading, you're searching for packs that have railroad in the name or description. This is the list of packs that include Immersive Railroading, as you can check on curseforge what a mod is required for. There's 161 packs.

    Thanks Xavion... and out of those 161 modpacks, are there any that stand out as superb, compared to the other ones? I'm looking for people's opinions, looking for modpack suggestions. Is there a big-name modpack that contains IR?

    I went thru all 161 modpack descriptions and don't recognize a single pack.

    However, I think this one was my favorite of the bunch (LOL thats sarcasm of course):

    "Mission Moonbutt
    by WeslyAdvanceSP
    Updated Apr 10, 2018
    You are stranded on planet earth with only 1 mission: go to the moon to build a giant butt. Will you succeed?"

    There's an even larger description for this intriguing modpack:
    "This pack is about you, a creature from an unknown planet, who was on a mission to build a giant butt on the moon. While flying to the moon, something went wrong in your calculations, and your rocket ship lands on planet earth instead. Alone, stranded on an unknown planet, you are trying to complete the only task you have: go to the moon and build a giant butt: the holy moonbutt.
    Will you succeed, and fulfill your only purpose in life?"

    After discovering this pack, how will my life ever be complete until I fulfill this purpose? I mean... what would a Holy Moonbutt even look like? Sounds fascinating! LOL

    I should know better than to Google some things. Why the heck did I get a bunch of MLP fanart?!

    Oddly enough, the only Minecraft-relevant thing I found was a link to a series based on the 'Space Astronomy' pack (which gave me nothing but trouble when I played it, and the pack designer wasn't interested in fielding questions on forum.)

    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.

    Ah, see, there was my problem. I went for the unascended moonbutt.

    infinite-> redstone engines cant ever put out the power needed by design

    Redstone engines serve 1 purpose and 1 purpose only. To power BuildCraft extraction pipes.

    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.
  17. Xavion

    Xavion Popular Member

    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)
