I can do that, yes, but I think it would be confusing.
Are you ever planning to go into more depth with neutron moderation in Reactorcraft, or adding other new mechanics?
Maybe, if it adds to the gameplay or adds realism without major balance or coding changes.
Maybe check what the player has in their hand when right clicking. If it's a cable then place it and don't open the GUI.
Something similar would be nice for the pneumatic item pump as well.
That was how it was initially implemented.
I noticed a bug with friction heaters on furnaces in v2:
They keep generating XP when the top slot has a smeltable item but the output slot is full (i.e. the furnace can't operate). It just produces infinite XP without smelting anything.
Already fixed in v3.
Was there an issue then with this original method? Was there a bug, or it too confusing?
I disliked the inconsistency.
At any rate, it has been reimplemented.
Do other RF cables purposefully not connect to the RF battery from EC? Well.. Actually enderio conduits do connect but they won't draw any power. Are RF conduits meant to be the only cable that will work with the battery?
No, and this should be fixed in v3.
Could you allow the Rotarycraft gravel gun to fire at more than just mobs? Maybe entities like ender crystals and minecarts as well? Also, the gravel gun seems to be able to target mobs through blocks, within a certain distance.
No. They are not living entities.
What is "certain distance"? 50m? 10m? 2m? 1m?
It seems to work as much as 120m away, but that may change with render distance. It won't actually fire a projectile, but moves as if it has, and also loses some power.
It range is only 128 blocks, so you are in essence saying it always fires through walls? I know from experience that this is untrue.
It acts like it is firing, but no flint flies out of it.
How can you tell? That little flying item is purely a render.
Well, in that case, I don't really know. Everything else points to the conclusion that it fires for some reason, without a clear line of sight. It's power level drains, and it moves in your hand, as if it is firing.
Define 'a clear line of sight'. Some blocks do not occlude it.
The gravel gun fires even if the target is behind cobblestone, wood planks, glass panes, glass, sandstone, iron blocks, and pretty much any other normal block I've tried.
Separate names with a comma.
