    I agree with this, so here it is. Feel free to suggest anything reasonable in terms of content additions or modifications.

    Under no circumstances am I obligated to include anything suggested on this thread.
    If I do reject your idea, I will explain my reasons for doing so, but do not get aggressive or pushy.

    Notes:
    • While you may also suggest content removal, such suggestions are extremely unlikely to get approval unless they fix major problems.
    • Suggestions which go against the four main tenets of the RC mod design - realism, extremely powerful endgame, advanced rendering, and learning over grinding - are almost certainly going to be flatly rejected without very good justification. Again, however, you will be informed of this.
    • If you see a suggestion you like, use the 'like' feature of the forum, as an impromptu voting system.

    Not sure if it falls under realism (or even if it's the newer version of RoC) but a shaft power bus and controller, but used to merge power. I think that would be kind of realistic and very useful!

    An upgrade for the borer. By upgrade I mean a pricy upgrade that let's you get a bigger area mined. That could be either scaleable (1 upgrade = 1 extra row) or a one/few shot upgrade (like the magnetostatic). And when I mean pricy, it also mean need of endgame stuff!

    I kind of like both of these.

    they blow up if not given a target fast enough and, the explosion is worst then that of a creeper.

    EDIT: book also says that enough discharges can cause a lightning strike.....

    less lag. seriously, that is all i have too ask. everything else is great.[DOUBLEPOST=1401339426][/DOUBLEPOST]
    i am getting a scalable multiblock feel from the borer upgrade suggestion.

    Could you see if you can make light bridges go through portalgun portals? That would be awesome.

    IIRC there's a config option for that.

    It has been proven that a majority of the lag problems come from rendering. One of Reika's unbreakable tenants is advanced rendering. Ipso facto Colombo Oreo it can't be done.

    Caveat: That depends on the computer specs. On gaming computers (read: 2+ $800+ graphics cards, $150- CPU), it may well be the simulation.

    Interesting and desirable but extremely difficult.

    There is a config option for the really destructive machines, and there are several, like the arrow gun, that deal no terrain damage at all.

    Ok. I was going to make portal 2 in minecraft. Sorta. Along with the nuclear power plant.
    Also, by those specs, my computer is NOT a gaming computer. If you like pong though, it is perfect. ;)

    you missed the "scaleable multiblock" part of my post.

    the light bridges could need sun, but then a way to pipe the sun

    I saw this on the other thread regarding wearable Faraday cages for working on your death machines.

    I think what the OP had in mind was something like this

    A small aesthetic request from my side. I think the RotaryCraft pipes are all a bit bulky. Especially compared to other mods (but then I'm used to EnderIO pipes which are very tiny). I'm not saying you should make them tiny but in some cases the pipes seem bigger then the machine to which it is connected. I suppose that it fits better with big multiblock machines like the reactor and turbines and such but with the smaller machines the big bulky pipes are a bit on the large side.

    That is what I was saying on the other forum. If you had a full suit of chainmail, you would have a Faraday suit. Faraday suits are made to keep you safe from thousands of volts.
