  1. Ok, this is damn scary... I built a Fuel Unloader recently & was test-hooking it up to a Rocket on the Launch Pad & both the Fuel Unloader & the Rocket (the one built with 3 Chests along with it) started out completely empty of everything, including Fuel & Power. I was checking out the FUel Unloader Interface when for no reason at all, my Power Armor Leggings showed up in it... I cl8icked them out & them my Power Armor Boots showed up... I exited the Fuel Loader Interface & opened up my Inventory... then I can't remember well from there, but afterwards as I was clicking around trying to figure out what the hell was going on, stuff was jumping around & moving around on its own into wrong Slots & such, & even somehow my afore-mentioned Power Armor Leggings somehow managed to Duplicate.

    Something's seriously wrong with the Fuel Unloader Code... My apologies that I can't give an exact description of the events, but it was too screwy & weird for my sorry excuse of a Memory to be able to recall in perfect detail.


    Many thanks for your time.

  2. Bug found with Galacticraft Rocket that has 50-something Inventory Spaces, the one that is crafted along with 3 Chests: When Placing the Rocket on the Pad, it does not disappear from the Hotbar Space afterwards, thus Duplicating the Rocket.

    Reproduction Steps: Farm Resources, craft them into Rocket Parts including the 3 Chests for the Inventory, Build NASA Workbench, Craft Rocket, craft Rocket Launch Pads, Place Rocket on Pads, notice a Rocket on the Pad & another Rocket still being in your arms/on your Hotbar at the same time.

    Hope this helps. :P


    Edit: Update: I had my Rocket Pad up against Wall before... I just tried it again with the Pad not having Wall adjacent to it & the Rocket did not Duplicate this time...

  3. Ok, #2 answered... looks like i'm a Mega Derp. lookin like I got Tin Blocks & Tin Decoration Blocks confused with each other somehow. Bleh, Tin Decoration Blocks suck at Aesthetics. :/

    Also, tried to check out Steel Blocks then found out to my disappointment that Steel Ingots HAVE no Block form. Negated Moment of Awesome... :(

    Still could use help with #3 as i've built up enough Oil supply that i'm getting tempted to build up my Galacticraft Power enough for a Rocket to get started on my future Space Station just to get some Resources (especially all these surplus Tin & Aluminum Blocks) spent to free me up some Inventory Space. It's still gonna suck though if Tin Blocks & Tin Decoration Blocks are the ONLY Options for Space Station building... especially when Tin Decoration Blocks are ugly & stupid in my shamelessly biased opinion...


    Starting to worry that there's no one here versed in Galacticraft Knowledge, & there's SO much the Galacticraft Wiki isn't helpful with... :(

  4. Update: Got #1 figured out myself as I was bored while waiting for stuff to process. Turns out Aluminum Wire & Redstone Energy Conduit are compatible with each other & can Interface & transfer power between each other. Would it have killed the Wiki to mention this being possible? :/ (Not to mention the Wiki having entire Items missing from it including but not limited to the Circuit Fabricator...)

    Could still use help with 2 & 3.

    Hope i'm not annoying...

  5. 1: I decided to try to get a head start on my Galacticraft stuff, & after looking through the NEI for a bit, it looked like the Circuit Fabricator was the first stepping stone, so I built one. It turned out that it seems to need Galacticraft power, but I can't seem to build Galacticraft power without the Circuit Fabricator... how do I power this thing to get started on the Galacticraft Road...?


    2: Tin Blocks that portablize Tin Ingots & Galacticraft Tin Blocks seem to share the exact recipe & i've built a ton of portablize Tin Ingots type Tin Blocks. How do I Craft the Galacticraft Tin Blocks when they seem to share duplicate Recipies?


    3: Are Galacticraft Tin Blocks the only block that seal Oxygen in a Space Station, or are there other options for this? I only notice Tin block versions of stuff like Sealable Oxygen pipe & the like in the NEI Recipies... it's gonna be VERY boring if Tin Blocks are the ONLY Space Station Block option...


    Many thanks for your time. :)


    P.S. Screw you Forum for eating the FIRST Thread Start I attempted before... screw you 500 Error! :argh:

  6. Many thanks for the help. :)


    Was hoping I could avoid needing Snowballs cause they are a pain in the butt to store & farm up & not really worth the power use or time to fridge up with a Glacial Precipitator when my Base is inside a Taiga + River + Desert, but lookin like it'll be the easy way to do this after all compared to looking for Blizzes... though if I ever find a source of Blizzes, i'll craft a Reuseable Safari Ball & nab one for future Cloning then. :) (Really don't understand why Snowballs can only store in stacks of up to 16 & can't deconstruct Snow Blocks into Snowballs at the same time. *Glares at Notch*)

  7. I've noticed in the NEI that I need Blizz Powder to make Gelid Cryotheum... & it can only  be gained from Blizz Rods. NEI won't tell me any way to craft them, so i'm assuming they drop off something. How do I get Blizz Rods? (Short of Freezing the Nether over to chill the Blazes into Blizzes. ;P )


    Many thanks for your time. :)

  8. I updated and cleaned up some parts of the text yesterday that were a bit ambiguous, and added a few details that I simply didn't know when I first wrote it.


    As for the curtain, this is a method that can be employed easily in a running Quarry by just moving along the edge of the pit. You can of course flood it before you even start, but that will spread the liquid over more blocks, which has two disadvantages:

    • Performance might drop more, because more water blocks are generated and updated.
    • The water will impair your sight more than a curtain would, so it is harder to spot problems from the edge.

    You avoid these if you only start flooding when the arm has already reached y=20 or so, but at this point a single water source block will not be sufficient any more. Of course, if the Quarry starts at a sufficiently high y level, even a single corner-placed water source block will cover the entire pit once it reaches lava level. I have no idea how high it needs to be for that, but for a 64x64 pit, this might require higher placement than sea level. Do respect the chunk update storm that all this water will cause. It should be safe in singpleplayer, but multiplayer may be different story.


    Also note that Cryotheum will (slowly) drop like Sand or Gravel, so you cannot just splash it into the pit. It needs to rest on the edge and flow over it for the source block to be preserved. Alternatively, you could place it on a single solid block above the Quarry frame area. I never said a curtain was the only way, it's just my way.


    If you have copious amounts of Cryo to spend, here is a truly elegant option: Flood the entire Quarry pit with Cryo one block high using a Buildcraft Floodgate. The cryo carpet will sink eventually as the Quarry progresses, and you can suck it back out with a Buildcraft Pump at the end. You do the math on how many buckets that will take - even a 9x9 standard pit will already need 81.

    Ahh, i'm playing Tekkit SP. Also I was talking from the point of view of Overworld Mining. I guess i'm not yet qualified to talk about Nether mining yet.


    As for Water impairing Sight, hasn't for me in ages. My MPS is equipped with Night Vision. Night Vision sees through the Water with ease when you're above it & looking down through it. 8) (It's also sweet to have in the Nether. :D )


    Edit: Oh, just remembered another tip: Angel Blocks can be your friend, especially when dealing with high elevation or Quarrying over the Ocean. Wouldn't blame any of ya a bit if ya saw the Angel Block in the NEI & thought to yourself "What's the point of that?", but having 1-5 of these dudes can be the best use for Chicken Feathers you'll ever find. :)

  9. You can farm Emeralds with a Quarry, but you need to manually locate an Extreme Hills Biome and set it up there, because Emeralds are only generated under those. Village trading works as well, of course, but I suggest using a Trading Station to make it less tedious. Gathering the guys in one spot also makes sense, so don't forget that you can

    • catch them by shift-right-clicking with a Reusable Safari Net and
    • resuce zombified villagers with a De-Zombification Syringe (takes a moment until they turn back).


    Shiny Metal can be reliably generated:

    • quarry the Nether for Nether Redstone Ore
    • put it into a Redstone Furnace (NOT in a Pulverizer)
    • alternatively you can just silk-touch regular Redstone Ore, the point is getting the ore itself and not the dusts
    • when you pulverize this ore, you will eventually get some Cinnabar
    • put Ferrous Ore in the Induction Smelter with Cinnabar to get one guaranteed Shiny Ingot from each ore

    It's a little work, but you can lift your limitations with that chain. That and EE3 should basically auto-generate MPS parts for you, once you advanced far enough.


    If you need some pointers about the Quarry, I wrote down what I learned >here.

    I can confirm that ya can also catch Villagers with the Magic Lasso, just gotta Shift-Right Click them instead of just Right Clicking them. Used this before to fish the stupid blokes outta Sewage/Sludge or the like they stupidly stroll right into before they get their stupid butt killed. (Doesn't help when the game spawns the Sewage Pit right under the Village Church, half wrecking the Church in the process too, I had to pump that Sewage out to get rid of it cause the Villagers were in danger of getting killed by the Sewage every time the poor dudes just wanted to nip into their Church & pray.)


    I had wondered if Cinnabar had any use, that sounds like an awesome trick for Shiny Metal! Many thanks for that! Can stroll right into my Nether Portal & grab some of that Nether Redstone to do that next play! ^_^


    I haven't yet found any Extreme Hills thus far, but I sure have a LOT of Desert & Ice Land around me. XD (Set for Induction Smelter Sand & ALL the Glass I could ever want forever. :P )


    Edit: Oh, now that I think about it, Quarrying the Nether was one of the big reasons I was working towards my Jetpack. Without flight, trying to Quarry the Nether will be too hard a thing to attempt. Fortunately don't need Flight to get Nether Redstone.

  10. Holy wow, there IS a use for Gelid Cryotheum after all? Sweet! :D


    Idea on how to deal with all that Netherrack: Feed it into Magma Crucibles to turn it into Lava, BC Pump the Lava Lakes & the Magma Crucibled Lava into Magmatic Dynamos to turn into Power that will be fed into Resonant Energy Cells. ;)


    The Single Lava Blocks that are dealt with by the Gelid Cryotheum &/or Buchet of Destabilized Redstone can become Obsidian of course.


    Why all the fancy schmancy 'curtain shenanigans'? Just place a single bucket early in the Quarrying then it'll spread out over the blocks then the Quarry will mine that Layer then it'll drop itself down & spread out further, then the Quarry will eventually reach that Layer & Mine it then it'll drop down & spread again, & it'll keep going like that till it's spread out over the whole Quarry Hole. No need for many Buckets of the stuff. ;)


    I built Land Marks ages ago but nothing I did would make them cooperate with my Quarry so I been stuck with its default width this whole time. I'll try your exact directions with it & see if it works & if there was something I didn't know to do that I wasn't somewhere... especially now that I have my first Resonant Energy Cell, default Quarry Size is gonna get a bit obsoletely small... & slow...


    Many thanks for the tips here. :D


    Edit: Wish my Firefox Spell Checker worked on this Forum.

  11. Many thanks for the News Link. I didn't know that existed before.


    Workin on getting the Jetpack built, runnin into Shiny Metal Dust shortages atm & noticing that Nether Platinum Ore in the Nether seems to be awfully hard to find in addition to Shiny Metal Dust not showing up as a byproduct of Pulverizing Ferrous Ore a fat lot. On the bright side, the Rail Gun has made Endermen Hunting SO much easier, especially useful since I still got 6 Minium Dust left to go to be able to craft my first Minium Stone to start off my EE3 power. Gettin about ready to try to bother Villagers for Emeralds instead & use those, I can Farm up a ton of Wheat & have easy access to Wool so might be less bother. Heck, might even make a big Player Made Village for the buggers then transfer them all to it & have them all in one spot with state of the art lighting & security. :P (Was planning to do this eventually but starting to get tempting to do it sooner rather then later.)

  12. Oh wow... Just tried looking at all the Batteries & the first 2 tier Batteries weight the same as the Elite Battery, 10kg but a single Elite Battery in my Power Fist gives me all the power I need in one go. I now have a 10kg Power Fist & no longer have any of my Armor Pieces weighing even 20kg now. I run faster & jump higher, but still can't fly with my Rocket Boots on. Still can't figure out if there's some kinda control to fly around that i'm not pressing or something to initiate actual flying around while Rocket Boots are on... on the upside, once I got my MPS Jetpack, those & the Rocket Boots together might give me my flight.


    Why can't flying with the Jetpack &/or Rocket Boots operate the same way control-wise as the Creative Mode Flight? Would be more intuitive.


    To my surprise i'm also seeming to still have enough weight for my Railgun use. Damn I love that weapon so much. Still eventually gonna craft a Plasma Cannon for the suit & screw around with it... then the Lightning Summoner... :D


    The MPS Mod needs to be re-continued. Especially, that Dimensional Tear Generator needs to be gotten working right.


    Edit: I just tried testing further... I tried Railgunning myself into the stratosphere with the Jet Boots on & again with them off, then again onn, then again off. I'm noticing a major difference in fall speed between on & off. The Boots are making a difference, the Jetpack then having them both turn on & off with the same Hotkey (That BETTER be possible...) oughta give me my Flight! :D


    Also just got a Resonant Energy Cell crafted & am now charging it. It'll rock for it to be able to power my Quarry & Pump in the future instead of the damn annoying hooking up 2 Steam Dynamos, 2 Aqueous Accumulators, a few Water Sources, & some Redstone Energy Conduits to the Quarry everytime, & one Steam Dynamo & 1 Aqueous Accumulator for the Pump. Can't wait till I can craft a second one I can dedicate to suit power.

  13. But then what will keep me weighted down against my own Rail Gun shots? :)


    But if I get the Jetpack built then still can't get off the ground, I may not have a choice...


    Edit: Now that I think about it, how strong IS the Energy Draw on 4 active Energy Shields...? I got the Solar Generator & Advanced Solar Generator both Installed along with the Kinetic Generator & the one that gives power from extreme heat for my Nether Jaunts...

  14. I already jacked up the Rocket Boots to max power & key bound it & tried turning it on... but I forgot to think about weight. I think all my MPS pieces weigh over 30 of whatever measurement the game uses, forget off the top of my head. I'll see if I can get the MPS Jetpack built & see if I can get it to work then, hopefully the Rocket Boots & Jetpack can work together & synergize.


    If not, might have to give Simply Jetpacks a try... though it'll be annoying switching between a Jetpack & my MPS Suit.


    Also gotten started on EE3 use, & managed to promptly derp up & found out Gold Swords don't suffice, though the Gold Armor Pieces do. 2 Minium Dusts down, 6 to go. Shoulda got started on it long ago then I coulda had plenty of Diamonds & Resonant Ender to Upgrade my MPS Suit with. Dang Tekkit is so big & hard to explore.


    Edit: Typo Fixes. Why doesn't Firefox's Spell Checker work on these Forums? :/

  15. Strange. So "Fix: Ender Lilys Maturing on World Reload" or something like that means nothing...? So hard to understand everything about Minecraft Modding.


    I got the Upgrade for the controlled flight, I just can't seem to figure out how to do the actual flying itself with them. The Rocket Boots are starting to look like the Dimensional Tear Generator, seems like ya put it on the suit but there's no way in hell to actually activate it & actually USE them... :(


    There's no way in hell I can give up the Powersuit, it's too awesome... especially when I recently built the Railgun & am now madly in love with it, especially for Enderman Hunting. (Still need to get into the EE3 stuff too... been spending the Diamonds on Suit Upgrades, but also been going into the Nether occasionally & those Gold Sword Drops might eventually suffice too.)


    Guess if I get desperate I can go to the other Jetpack option... but it's gonna look inferior compared to the MPS... :/

  16. I just got Rocket Boots crafted onto my Modular Power Suit in my SP Survival... i've tried Key Binding them in the MPS Keybinding Interface to turn the Rocket Boots on & off... but I can't figure out how to fly around on them, how do I get off the ground & stay off it with these things? Gonna need to know how to do this with the MPS Jetpack I wanna add on to the Suit in the future too.


    Many thanks for your time.


    P.S. Tekkit keeps giving messages when I enter it that look like Patch Notes from time to time... is it still under active development even though Tekkit 2 is on the way? (Seems easierlazier to ask this here even if it's not really on topic rather then make a 2nd Thread & make the Forum messier.)

  17. Ahh, many thanks for the response. Seems odd that Tekkit can't do that when I woulda swore I thought i've seen Tinker's something or other in it before... but my Memory isn't any good so i'm not about to rely on it.


    Edit: Ahh, I just looked it up in-game & it was Tinker's Alloy I was thinking of... but it's a Thermal Expansion item. Not the same. Anyway, many thanks for the EE3 Link, i'm gonna give it a good read... i've not yet started exploring EE3 yet, & lookin like it'll be good to learn about. Those Gold Armor pieces rarely droppin off Mobs... I was sitting here wishing I could recycle them into something useful all this time, now my Wish is answered! Can eventually lead to additional supply of Resonant Ender as well, I can use plenty of it. :D

  18. http://wiki.technicpack.net/Resonant_Ender



    Acquired by smelting ender pearls in the Magma Crucible. Or by damaging an Enderman inside a smelter, each tick of damage they receive will provide 250 mB of Resonant Ender.

    What does this mean, 'damaging an Enderman inside a smelter'...? I have no clue what 'smelter' there could be that an Enderman could even be inside for this purpose... I could use some help understanding this, cause i'm getting Mad Tekkit Science thoughts of piping my XP from my Grinders to a Auto-Spawner that is set up to Spawn Endermen that could then be killed this way to create a source of Resonant Ender... is this even possible...?


    Many thanks for your time. :)

  19. Ahh, many thanks for the info again. :)


    Also now found out that MPS's sorry excuse for a Keybinding system can't Keybind its own Dimensional Tear Generator function after I just got that Installed onto my Powersuit so looks like I can forget about Obsoleting the old school Nether Portals as well. Safe bet I can forget about this ever being fixed? :/ (That & the Kinetic Energy Generator share the same Symbol & of the two, only the Kinetic Energy Generator can be Keybound... & one can't help but to wonder WHY one would ever wanna turn the Kinetic Energy Generator off, ever...)

  20. I've now tested Large Obsidian Bricks themselves vs TNT & confirm they are Blast Proof correctly, which is a good thing cause I just plain auto-assumed they would be when deciding to make my Tekkit SP World Base outta them assuming that Creepers could forget about ever being able to harm them cause Obsidian was an Ingredient in the Large Obsidian Brick crafting.


    I have been playing this Tekkit Game for awhile now, but i'm still new to these Forums. What is this 'Tekkit 2' I keep hearing about...? Am I playing the wrong version of Tekkit?

  21. The inventory controls are reassigned in... inventory. Click the little "three-dot" icon in the top right corner.


    Don't memorize that, though. In Minecraft 1.7, Mojang did a major overhaul of key bindings, putting them all in one central menu.


    I should also have mentioned that there is another useful NEI key. While R shows you how to obtain an item, U will show you what it is used for. In regular NEI mode, which is active when you are not OP or switched to recipe mode, you can also simply click the left and right mouse buttons for these. In (default) cheat mode, clicking will give you a stack (left click) or a single item (right click) of whatever you are clicking at.


    P.S.: It appears somebody pinned my thread. Guess I'll have to redo it when Tekkit 2 comes around.


    It worked!!! That '3 dot button' is so small & insignificant lookin I never even thought of paying attention to it let alone clicking it before... it's so hard to even mind its existence! I can use 'r' in my search criteria in my NEI safely now! Thank you so much, you're my Hero! ^_^


    Edit: When Quote Replying, why is it impossible to place my Post outside the Quoted Message...? O_0

    Edit 2: Ahh, that better. :)

  22. According to its page here: http://wiki.technicpack.net/Carpenter%27s_Blocks



    The frame will inherit the cover block's texture and most of it's other properties including flammability, explosion resistance, and more.

    This is not working. I've tried making Carpenter's Ladders, placing Large Obsidian Bricks in them i've confirmed are TNT-proof, & try test detonating TNT near them, & the Ladder is dying in the blast as easily as if it was a Vanilla Wooden Ladder. Any hope for a fix to this, especially when Large Obsidian Bricks require Carpenter Block help for access to things like Ladder, Door, & Stair Versions of them?


    Many thanks for your time.
