    In the 1.5 version the steam modules have a configuable throttle because I kept getting people complaining about that. It can only buffer 1B though, so if for some reason you wanted more, you're out of luck.

    yeah. when i tested this, i`ve put liquiducts to drain 720 mb/t from 2 36 hp boilers, to 2 tesseracts, that send to 1 tesseract connected to steam consumer.
    in order to use all steam from bridge, i`ve used ev eu producer feeding matter fab. the biggest number i`ve seen in energy bridge was 1000mb/t.
    when i added 2nd steam consumer to system i`ve got 1000mb on 1 consumer, and 440 on second.

    Grrr, I wish i'd known that before now. I've been wasting 440 mb/t of steam for ages thanks to this :mad:

    Tesseracts are filled with molten ender pearl, and it's well established that ender pearls and endermen in general have teleportation powers. Not seeing a problem there.

    And conduits don't transport Joules, they transport Minecraft Joules, which are a completely different thing that just happens to have a similar name.

    You'd see the problem if you'd bothered to get context on the conversation.

    I was comparing Minecraft to reality. Not to itself.

    No, the standard assumption is "like reality except where noted". Enderpearls clearly come under "except where noted", as do Minecraft Joules, being a different unit of measurement to Joules. Steam power does not come under "except where noted", and is thus a valid target for realism disputes.

    That said, the original complaint was regarding game balance, not realism.

    The original complaint that was I was responding to was that the mechanic didn't make sense. Trust me. I was there.

    Are the absence of gravity affecting certain kinds of mass, lack of conservation of energy, infinite water, infinite mob spawning, and most machines not requiring any maintenance at all also 'except where noted'?

    Trust me, there are a lot more mechanics in Minecraft that are based on, and subsequently defy the laws of reality than not. Making a point to complain about one while ignoring the others is just silly.

    Not sure quite what you mean as regards conservation of energy. The gravity and infinite water thing are very silly, I'll grant you. Mob spawning is a handwave, it's easy enough t o assume they came from somewhere, in most cases. As for machines, many don't need that much maintenance, not over the span of time most Minecraft worlds last for. When was the last time you needed to do maintenance on your fridge, or your washing machine?

    The thing is, though, there is a difference between verisimilitude and realism. The thing that matters most is that the world is internally consistent, and I can see the argument that what Power Converters does with steam breaks that consistency. I don't necessarily agree with it, but there's definitely a valid argument there.

    Let's check: IC2 is dead already?

    No. Come back later. Maybe we'll make an antimatter bomb.

    Course not, IC2 will only die when nobody is left to develop it. I said that shit a long time ago, and I'm sure someone else did before me.

    Also...am I the only one that's becoming increasingly more irritated by the word "cheaty?"

    God damn it, that't the word I was looking for last time I was arguing this.

    Veri-simi-litude.

    Will have to remember that one.

    Which is pretty much right now, as they can't do official updates.

    Proof? Not calling you out, or anything...just, making a claim without providing any evidence seems suspect, at best.
