Got into this pack watching Pakratt's LP on youtube. Liked it so much I decided to record it myself. Had to fix an issue with the pack name though -to make it more appropriate- so the series is called "SadistCat's Magic Farm 2 LP" (love ya Jaded)
My question is what is a good start point for energy generation. I want an initial power system that will also cover mid game and I don't feel like mucking about with culinary generator's. I'm a lava man by nature and I just want something simple to automate that works.
I personnaly used a potion generator for most of my power. A high setup cost but was fun! Still not totally automated...
You need a simple nether wart and sugar cane farm. A glowstone generator is very useful too!(made by TE)
I somewhat automated it using 3 stand with hoppers and itemducts, fairly simple.
Another good power gen, if you are not in hardcore, is using bloodmagic's ritual. They reauire you to get to tier 3-4 altar which is fairly simple. Get an altar autofilled with your orb in it (ritual of sacrifice with witch is awesome) and make a serenade of the nether) which will give you lava.
Both are more midgame then earlygame however.
