    PROUDLY BROUGHT TO YOU BY GUNDERSON'S NUTS
    They'r Nutso Fabulous
    @Direwolf20
    @JSDKirby cool looks pretty Awesome!

    AND NOW!!!!

    A suggestion to the fantastic Buildcraft dev team, instead of good ol CovertJaguar(EDIT: according to the most reliable sources it was actually Player) nerfing your fuel, the cornerstone of MinecraftJoules!!! Show the other devs that fuel is NOT OP by introducing a new refinery. Bigger, better and uhm bigger... I give you the future refinery and Minecraft's first true MULTIblock:-

    Now I know you're thinking that's a bit much for a refinery and you'd be right... I'm a belt and braces type of chap so that's actually 3 next to each other... For the average minecrafter one would serve all their needs;)

    Love the look of your build. Vary clean.

    Just FYI, I am only peripherally involved in the fuel changes. I added the config so you can change them back.

    Player is the one who nerfed them.

    That refinery is amazing. Now we just need a 10x size BOILER.
    Well thanks for the configs at least. ;) One thing though: isn't Player an IC2 dev? If so, why does he have any say on how BC and RC works? After all, IC2 should never be able to dictate the balance of the mod environment at large. No mod IMO should, let alone a mod whose own balance is considered.....highly questionable by a fair amount of players right now.

    Hahaha was being tongue in cheek but will edit the OP, thanks for the response;)[DOUBLEPOST=1384412382][/DOUBLEPOST]
    Hmmmm that's actually a good idea, will have a think on how to make it look and function like a 10x boiler tho instead of just a massive grey block...

    moving that thing would be a pain in the *$*%*# :p it'd be a whole lot easier though if the Buildcraft Builder would come back, but I guess right now it's still quite some work to get the builder back :(

    Indeed it would, although probably about half as long as it took to build it because I built all the tank outlines in cobble thinking I could just equal trade in the tank frames, ya that didn't work;)

    Player also happens to be a Buildcraft Dev (yes, I'm not the only one). And Railcraft has always been balanced around Buildcraft.

    Oh, I was not actually aware of this. I always thought that you, Sengir and Krapht were the current devs, and that Player was strictly an IC2 dev. Mistake on my part. Still don't agree with the nerf but at least it makes more sense in terms of why it affects both BC and ICE.

    I wasn't aware that Krapht was a dev. I always thought it was Sengir, Jaguar, and Player as well as anyone that wanted to edit it through github (Sorry if I'm wrong on how that works. It's how open source projects work as I understand it.)

    I could give it a shot, just not sure what exactly you're looking for??

    It's just railcraft tanks with normal refineries and over embellished and complictaed everything else simply to look cool...

    This was the last fuel refinery I designed, produced about 3 buckets of fuel per second. This was the prototype from a test world, the finished one on the main server is below ground so you can't really take pictures of it.

    Nice build

    I can not help but think it would look cooler with piping instead of tesseracts.

    A previous version had that, was this eldritch-horror-tentacle-mess of liquiducts, you couldn't even see most of the machinery from a birds eye view, or where basically anything was coming from or going to. lol

    Eldritch horror? Yeah that would be cooler.

    I tend to agree...

    @Sarda, however our builds come from completely different design ideas... Your's is about mass producing fuel in vast quantities, my entire goal was to build a multiblock refinery and make it look cool. Yours is a very neat build but the complete opposite of what I was going for...

    I am curious on what those 2 solar towers in the background are for, are they part of the refinery?
