    Has anyone figured out a way to automatically milk cows in 152ngt?

    I tried a couple of turtle solutions (bucket and tank turtles) and neither worked.

    Minefactory reloaded adds a machine called the rancher which can milk cows as well as sheer sheep.

    Gah. I knew I was missing something obvious.

    Thank you. I shall go club myself with a hunk of leather.

    I'd recommend only supplying it with a very small amount of power, as it is an energy hog for me. As soon as the internal buffer has any space, it collects a bucket but only fills up the buffer the few mB that was missing.

    I assume you are going to be using it with Force engines, correct?

    Yeah, that was the plan.

    Fill up a 3x3x5 railcraft tank and run force engines for fun and profit.

    Actually just started, but I haven't seen him doing that :)

    I've already got an array of combustion engines (12 planted, 9 more available I just haven't setup yet), and figured that, what the heck, let's just throw MOAR POWAH! out there.

    I've already got the cows doing sewage for farms, so this won't hurt a thing :)

    That was a fun system. I am actually installing Dartcraft right now, my console doesn't appear to be spazzing either so I should be able to do this soon. And yes, it worked with no id conflicts. Also I want to bottle a small amount of milk for when I am working with jungle bees and other effect giving stuff.

    I love dartcraft. I think there needs to be something more restricting the enchantment of his tools, because the stuff is really wow-powerful and easy to get....but as it stands, his method of enchanting is really close to perfect. (maybe if it required some xp too..dunno..I mean, I'm level 60. I haven't spent a level or died since we re-rolled the server 152ngt)

    I'm sure I'll get a good chuckle out of that system of KirinDave's when I get there. I'm also sure it'll be a lot more efficient than mine :) I tend to brute force stuff

    The fun for me is the railcraft tank full of milk and the absurdity of using it for fuel. But milk in the USA is full of sugar anyways so... :p May the force be with you

    Do you have your milk semi-skimmed?
    No, I have it, full throttle.

    I am truly sorry for the appalling joke, but my mind just works the way it works.
