thanks. that was not very sustainable I guess I have to find another way to get my dyes :D
It’s not too bad ;) you plant one petal and get four back; I believe people have automated the planting, bonemealing and breaking process, making sure that the petals are split in a 1:3 ratio so a quarter go back into the planter.

Why is this level emitter lit up? The interface is empty. As you can see, the subnet consists of two cables, a storage bus on the interface, and a level emitter. Quartz cables connect to the subnet below to provide power, and the level emitter is isolated by cable anchors. The subnet below is identical, and detects three dusts in the interface and turns on the item conduit when there are three. This one just lights up all the time, as if it were connected to the main network.

Finally built my new system after my old Frankenputer decided to melt itself into slag. Now to figure out what's happened since I've been away. Been tinkering with a 1.12 pack to get back into the swing, but I've been considering 1.14.

So questions:
1) How stable are things in 1.14?

2) Does Create (looks fantastic from what little I've seen) have any sort of automated lumber? I've seen crop support, but I haven't seen lumberjack and that's kind of a big deal for me.

I am finally reaching the final parts of ic2. gonna try to get a mass fabricator up and running. I have currently 5x 420 eu/t reactors. dunno if it will be enough, but I can probably make more.

Anyway my question is simple. I have 3 powered recyclers, and a bunch of igneous extruder to fill up my me system with scrap. Then I have an interface with 6 molecular assembler's to create scrap boxes, the problem is that I want the interface to automaticly turn ALL scrap into scrap boxes. I dont want to have to order x amount of scrap boxes. How can I do this?

First of all, big props on posting the 33000th post on here :D

Second, are you looking to have a backlog of scrapboxes? I ask because if you have a crafting card on an export bus and tell it to export scrapboxes, then it will keep requesting the crafting of them as long as it can export.

Out of curiosity, why are you making scrapboxes?

ah ok I will try that then thanks! I need scrapboxes to feed my mass fabricator for more efficiency

well actually that didnt work? where would I put this export bus with the crafting card?

Oh! Hmm that should work? It should go onto wherever you want the scrapboxes to go, and the crafting card should go into it. If you tell it to export scrapboxes, it should tell the system to craft them if there aren’t any to export, I don’t know why it wouldn’t be! Also, my understanding was that scrapboxes give your 9x the boost that scrap does - which is exactly the cost to make them, so there is no benefit; I may be wrong there though

yeah i dont think there is a benefit either, but from previous experience which is long ago. the mass fabricator needs such a big amount of scrap that feeding it as scrap box is much more efficient to even be able to keep it stacked up with scrap.

I tried to put an export bus to my ME drive with the crafting card and scrap box in it, but it did not work. I will try to put it onto the mass fabricator itself once my setup is done. if not I may just use regular scrap I guess.

Ah, that does make sense - the ME system performs a craft request for it if it’s not already present in the system, otherwise its just moving it. By exporting into the Mass Fab, you’re removing it from the system, thus triggers crafting.

I did not manage to make the crafting card work towards then mass fabritator either. maybe some error on my part. the good news however is that scrapboxes was totally overkill. it doesn't deplete with regular scrap at all. as long as you got two accellerator cards in the export bus feeding regular scrap :D so my setup is ready now. I just hope I will not overflow my system with too much cobblestone, and that my 5 reactors will be able to grant me enough iridium to create some powerful solar panels before I run out of uranium :D

Ah that’s annoying - I could have sworn that crafting card thing worked! I’m glad you managed to get it all sorted out :)

I solved my problem:
upload_2020-1-10_17-47-34.png
Interface keeps 3 dust in stock, item conduit with Limited Item Filter keeps 3 in the crate, and same again on the other side to extract and export with Limited Item Filter. So my Electrolyzer is only ever fed with the right number of dusts and never gets part filled and stuck.

Is there a simple way to update the forge version on a FTB Pack? We are currently playing on a server using the Direwolf20 1.12.2 modpack, but we want to update the mods in that server to be the latest updates, but this needs the latest version of forge.

Sorry if there was an answer to this question, I went through some pages looking to see if it was there, but didnt see one.

Good day!

I am running a custom 1.14.4 pack. It includes iron jetpacks. According to JEI, my jetpack should be able to be enchanted with protection and thorns. But, nothing shows up in an enchanting table and it won't let me combine it with a book in an anvil.

Is there some other method other than commands?

Question about updating a world: is it *possible* to update a FTB modpack world to a newer version of Minecraft? Basically there's a house I've been working on for a long time and I don't want to lose it, but I'd like to update from 1.12.2 to 1.14 for both the Minecraft updates and also the newer additions that 1.14 mods have. I know I'd need to delete chunks to bring the updates closer to me from my starting point as well as probably remove any modded blocks that aren't carried over in the newer modpack. What else would I need to do, or would updating just *break* the world, and it's better to either start from scratch or WorldEdit the house into a new world?

Thank you for any help at all.

I literally posted at the same time as you with the same question haha, and same circumstances. Here's hoping we get an answer.
