I'd say RedPower's tubes are better. They're quite smart, and in conjunction with a sorting machine, they can make a rather compact sorting system. Buildcraft pipes had the potential to be faster until RedPower's Mag Tubes were introduced.
Hey folks, just wondering, what do you think the EMC values will be for newer Vanilla Minecraft items? Like an emerald. Will it be given a value? It's kind of hard to work with from an EMC standpoint. Or how about a Nether Star from the new snapshot? If you realize how hard it is to get, I was gonna say that it should definitely be more than diamonds. I was gonna say the same as Tungsten at 16,184. What do you guys think? Or is this actually already known for a fact? I was just wondering.
