    I find it is good for early fertilizer, or for tree fertilizing, but if you really want to max fertilize a normal farm you need to use a different method of gathering (one of the crafting recipes, remember ic2 fert works too). All those animals just cause so much lag.

    It got cancelled, then brought back. So it didn't gain popularity, it started existing :p

    No, they just don't want to work on one thing until they die. Plus, if a doctor stayed for 20 years there would be no suspense.

    They have an advantage over other shows in that they can change actors easily; why waste it?
    I absolutely hate Sphax, especially the really low-res ones.
    As for myself, I use the 32x faithful. It makes everything look a little better, but not one of those 2048x2048 which look awful and cripple even the best computers.

    You're no longer welcome on the server :p

    I just find it odd that a mod would not be self contain supportive. It seems fairly out of place that you would have a process to make fertilizer in the mod but then have no way to make a reasonable amount if it for just 1 farm. And this is running on the version that does not even allow for larger farms. Basically if you can not support a 3x3 farm out of the box I would hate to see anything larger.

    So it is silly. But it will be easier in the long run to pluverize some apatite and then just get a skeleton farm and use the IC2 fertilizer recpice that makes no sense that is 1 fertilizer + 1 Bone meal = 2 fertilizer.

    This 40 cell has 80 sheep and it just barely keeps two compostors running at max.

    Now this might be an issue with the fact currently in FTB the version only checks directly above itself and the newer update allows for upgrades that make the collector check in an area. So there might be an issue where it is not counting the mobs all that well. If you watch the pipes below you can see the collectors do not put out evenly and sometimes stop output for awhile. Saddly I don't think FTB will be updating MFR until they do their next big update. So for the mean time looks like I'll be doing Fertilizer doubling with the magic of bonemeal. That is once I find some diamonds.

    Man I need to go mining.

    I actually used the in-mod recipe for MFR fertilizer. IIRC it used 2 bonemeal, 2 wheat, a stick, and some string to make 16 fert. I could be wrong on the numbers but I think those were the resources used. I farmed everything but the bonemeal which came from a skele spawner.

    Yes that is what I am using now. But it just seems weird that there totally are these machines that in the mod that end up being semi useless since the output is ridiculously low.

    EDIT- I say I will be going to the IC2 one just because it will be better in the long run because unless I want to go to a cow spawner too the leather required for the in mod recipe would get to costly in the long run.

    ya saice i would have to agree with you about that you would think that animal poo would create more fertilizer but it would be funny if it gave off a small potion effect to resemble the smell of fertilizer being made lol

    I think the problem is less how little they produce, and more how much the fertilizers can consume. Using it on a tree is great cause it takes a while to chop it down, fertilizing a 3x3 wheat farm tho runs through an entire stack in seconds.
  9. Saice

    Saice New Member

    Yes which is the issue I want to do biomass production. And since the MFR and IC2 fertilizers don't work for that I need compost and the easiest way to do that is via wheat.

    So the lamp posts are looking ugly to me and crowd up the place to much.

    So I went and murdered some squids in the puddles around my base and made some camo trap doors

    Now you see the floor lighting

    i like it. it's always hard to get large areas well lit and not look like your spamming torches or in your case street lamps
  12. Saice

    Saice New Member

    Yes... And I'll mostly put a few lamp posts back up for looks but just that for looks.

    Saice, I think chickens give you a crapton of crap. More than other animals. I may be wrong though.

    Personally saice, I'm a bit iffy on the roads. I don't like the indentation they make :p But of course it's your road, and your choice :D
    And have you tried putting lights in the roads? I saw this one town on tekkit that had the NICEST roads I had ever seen. I'll have to go onto that server and check them out. Then I can show you. But that will be in whatever time I remember to do so, so...you probably won't see those roads for a couple years weeks days.[DOUBLEPOST=1365637500][/DOUBLEPOST]
    And, isn't it 1 scrap+1 fertilizer=2 fertilizer? Or is that 1.2.5??
    I remember infinite fertilizer systems with a cobble gen.

    Hey Saice, I was thinking today about what roads would look cool. Would you ever consider using Redstone ore for an area or small road? They light up when you step on it, so.. :3

    I did that for a theatre in an old vanilla server, redstone lit up so it wouldn't be all dark :p
    Yea, there's tripwire on top of a lamp or something, but redstone feels so much...vanillyier!

    well according to my grandma's porch chickens do crap a lot and she will disown my uncle if he lets them run around the farm again

    It apears to work like so. chicken -> cat -> wolf -> pig -> Cow/Sheep for poop per animal. Form the testing Ive done.

    Also while it says it counts the animals above the block it appears in the version in FTB that is a little buggy and counting 1 or 0 and not really seeming to noitce if there is animals stacked or pushed into the same square. I assume just because of how it will work that once FTB upgrades to the newer version that has ranges it will work much better.
