    Te machines/blocks are upgraded with upgrade kits now (very similar tier names though)
    also past a certain mod version u can enchant energy cells ,portable tanks,capacitors, satchels for even moar capacity(stacks with kits/upgrades).

    Te no longer has a method for long distance transport.
    the cheaper method for long distance power transfer is rftools power cells(2 cells with the same frequency share the same power pool no mater how far apart they are from each other even if its across dimensional boundaries)
    the more expensive method for long distance energy transport is a dimensional transceiver from ender io(it can do items and fluid to ,but Ender storage can do long distance items/fluid separately as well if u have the blaze rods to do so)

    I'm looking for a way to disable sleep, but also cause rain to "reset itself" instead of relying on sleep.
    Currently have sleep disabled in my modpack, but that leads to the "british weather" effect which really dampens things.

    So, anyway to seperate rain from sleep?

    Thanks for the help with the energy cells, I've now got storage and the ability to move RF around.

    But as always I have another question about Revelation, about mining tool progression.
    At the moment I'm basically strip mining with a hammer, but are there any other mods that add more efficient tools?

    the thermal innovation drills , they are called flux bores(upgrade-able energy based drills). The signalium tier has a mode with a 3x3x3 harvest and its upgrade(resonant) adds a 5x5 harvest mode. Enchanting wise its a normal pickaxe/shovel hybrid that can also get the holding enchant(like other te stuff)

    @Golrith Separating rain from sleep or just outright stopping the rain? If its the latter you can use Botania's teru teru bozu, EnderIO's weather obelisk or Draconic's celestial manipulator for weather control.

    @DEL 707 Hammers rock for that stage, you can increase their width and height, speed and make them unbreakable (or nearly so- ardite head and rod for petramor and stonebound with a little bronze for dense and obsidian for duritae will make for a fast hammer that works its durability lower to an equilibrium- Its fun, try it). But aside from Everlasting's suggestion another powered option is the Actually Additions drill- takes many upgrades for speed, fortune, silk touch,mining size, etc.,.
    What you really want to be doing about now is looking at automated mining of some sort- AA has a good early vertical digger and also has the lens of the miner for the atomic reconstructor, RFTools builder w/ quarry card, EXUtils quantum quarry and EnviroTechs void ore miner series are all something to look towards to ease your need for ores.

    they asked for better mining tools not auto mining things so i gave them what they asked for.(also i think the aa drill penalizes u for aoe mining energy wise while i don't think the thermal drill does plus the mode switch is super handy)

    Thanks for the help, manage to scrap together enough resources for a Resonant Fluxbore with a few enchants.
    Now flying along! :)

    Another question. Is there a way to instantly destroy cobblestone or to not just pick it up?
    It's slowing me down having to destroy all the trash I'm picking it.

    The dank or dev/null are neat little tools for picking up cobble and others as well as voiding extra.

    Thanks, wish I new about some of this stuff ages ago.

    Playing about with Thuamcraft 6 in Revelations now, but as usual, I got a bit of a problem...a flux problem.
    To get some research finished, I need to create a load of flux, which caused a tear.
    I'm trying to do the research that allows me to deal with flux/tears but it says I need to research a vis battery.

    I can't see that research anywhere, I researched and made a vis generator but that hasn't helped.

    Edit - Nevermind, found it after I researched the recharge pedestal

    the key to the vis generator research was scan a crystal cluster in world (last i remeber)

    Which mod lets you zoom up a ladder when you look up when you are on it?

    For 1.12.2 can anyone recommend a way to edit (adding and removing) mob drops? Looking for a simple system, as I'm a simple person :D

    hi, I'm obnoxiously new, both to Minecraft and to the FTB Lite 3 mod, and I have some obnoxious newbie questions. is this a good place to ask them, or is there somewhere better? pointers to a FAQ or previously asked and answered noob questions would also be appreciated. I've been digging around the Wiki, but I don't know which mod is responsible for some of the things I'm experiencing (big black holes in the ground, lack of villages/villagers), so I don't know where to look.

    Hi Sprackraptor, welcome to the forums!

    This is the thread to ask stupid questions for sure, but I would also direct you to the search function here on the forums first. You are probably correct that your question has been asked before, so try that first.

    Lack of Villages/Villagers could be RNG hating you and not spawning one close by, I've had many a world where it took me looking over a 1k radius from spawn before I found one :(

    As for big black holes? No idea..

    The 'big black holes' might just be chunk errors - try pressing F3+A to reload all chunks.

    As Cptqrk says, you might just be unlucky regarding villages. Maybe try using a village finder like this one.
