    16K drives seem to be the best bet. 64K really only seem to be useful if you plan on having obscene amounts of 1 thing. I find myself running out of types on a drive before I run out of space on it.

    ya my only issue is a lack of gold I have a lot of everything else otherwise I probably would have put everything in them.

    You could probably build DSU's for your various stones and use Storage Bus to access them. That would save a tremendous amount of disk space for you

    cool thanks just started playing around with AE since I was tired of searching through all my chests for the right stone.

    Slapping a Storage Bus on a chest includes that storage in the ME network. It's a quick n dirty method of easily accessing everything without having to hunt through all the chests.

    To set up DSU's, it is really easy, all you need is a single export bus (although a fuzzy bus will make it go much faster). Pick a DSU, hook up export bus and tell it to export a type of stone. DSU fills up with that stone. Slap storage bus on DSU. Done. Rinse, wash, repeat with other DSU's. Watch as your disk usage drops 90+%!

    If you're still using RR you should have the extra cells mod. You can use an me block container as a cheaper solution than DSU's. And they'll fit in the storage drive.

    Although DSU's are better for mega large unit storage (millions +) .

    I'm too lazy to properly resize the right pic. When I crack open photoshop tonight I'll try to remember to fix it after I try my hand at an RR design.

    ya with the launcher it's easier but when I have to download the mods it seems to want to fight me stupid links.

    Actually, because of the hole in the glass, they will not choose to go in there, as it does not qualify as a house :(
    Also, it is not safe as zombies may break the door down :(

    well I've been a little busy lately and haven't had much time to work on my city. I have joined a server so do you want me to continue this same type of build or go with something else. I will let you guys decide. If you want something else make some suggestions and I will pick the one I would enjoy the most to do. :D

    I would go with the former.
