IC2 is slowly dying out ?

    You should be specific, Velo. Specific things I can think of offhand:
    1. We need to help Calclavia get good steam ratio numbers. DoctorOr was looking at this.
    2. Steel creation from Mekanism can muck with things.
    3. It'd be great if we could easily introduce lossiness to the Mekanism power conversion. Sometimes it's not good that it's so efficient.
    4. It'd be great if MFFS had some smarts about other mods. Like for example, a config option for portable holes. :)

    Looking?

    Looked. Done. 15-20KW per 40mB of steam. 15KW puts it slightly below an industrial steam engine. 20KW puts it more than slightly above - a steam engine converts to 16.6 KW

    I suggested 15KW for the single block turbines, 20KW * 9 for the large multiblock, which tracks the relative resource cost (9 ingots for the turbine, 11 for the engine) and provides a bonus for multiblock. The steam consumption should remain static. After the turbines are set, balancing the reactor output is fairly trivial, since you're no longer trying to juggle all the variables at once.

    Current steam consumption is basically zero. I've never hit a limit to how many turbines a reactor - or a railcraft boiler - can power. I reached 88 large turbines before I got tired of bothering. At current RR config of 15KW per turbine, that means I exceed 11MW - or approx 14k EU - production from a 36HP boiler or 5x5 AS reactor.

    There is that parameter we haven't tweaked yet. Remember?

    That's what I said. Current consumption - and has been true for many, many, AS revisions, is basically zero.

    I think you should concentrate a bit more on green power. Don't destroy the earth!

    I think you're right about the steam consumption. I just built a fusion reactor setup in a creative test world, and 153 large turbines were fed off of a single fusion reactor with funnels, and liquiducts and such. Those 153 large turbines weren't even putting a scratch in the steam produced. I would have built more, but at that point it was charging an ultimate energy cube in less than 3 seconds...

    *Looks at watch*

    Is IC2 dead yet?

    Not yet...Wait for it...Wait for it...(weeks later) Yup!

    My biggest issue with UE although I love it don't get me wrong is the lack of documentation.

    I agree the documentation for the most part is horrible. Most of the stuff I've had to work out on my own or learn from resonant rise players on this forum.

    I have figured out what I can by watching direwolf20's mod reviews and a couple other youtubers so reviews. it would be nice if they just included a rudimentary list or uses for each block. Then the users would at least have somewhere to start

    It won't be dead until IC3 is released.

    People still use IC1
     
  18. Bellaabzug21

    Bellaabzug21 New Member

    Those people are using it because of this: "Terrain generationz in new verzunz sux lolz!" Maybe not all of them, but that's the reason the vast majority has.

    The reason isn't really relevant. Just pointing it out to give you a hard time.

    But IC1 could be considered dead. Some people will use IC2 once IC3 is released, but theoretically it's dead.
