Monitor screen for Big Reactor's Reactor


Recommended Posts

On our tekkit server, we have created a Big Reactor's Reactor. we were wondering if there is a way to set up computers, wiring, monitors, and misc parts to be able to make a monitor in our house to monitor the

power levels and stuff of the reactor so that we don't have to keep runnin down into the reactor room to see the readings?

This is possible, just add a Computer Port to your reactor and hook it up. However, you need to look into Computercraft to do it, and this can be daunting if you have no prior coding experience. On the other hand, even if you just dabbled a bit in coding, you should find the concepts familiar. There are good guides on the web on how to do it.

A word of warning, though. Computercraft had some major changes in version 1.6, and recommended Tekkit still uses 1.58. In the beta build, we do have CC 1.63. So if you want predictable results, maybe stay on recommended and learn the old ways. Or use the beta and profit from the new versions, which may have some >caveats yet.

ComputerCraft seems to be the right place to do that. Many programs has been made to Monitor and/or Control Big Reactrors. You should have a look into the program section of the computer craft forum: http://www.computercraft.info/forums2/index.php?/forum/12-programs/


I have made some programs by myself, but the focus is more on full automatic controlling with plug&play than monitoring:


Control Passive Cooled Reactor: http://www.computercraft.info/forums2/index.php?/topic/18515-control-passive-cooled-big-reactors/


Turbine PID Controller: http://www.computercraft.info/forums2/index.php?/topic/21430-active-cooled-big-reactor-turbine-pid-controller-with-master-control-and-monitoring/


The turbine controller has a remote monitoring and controlling facility. In Tekkit you can also use the terminal glasses of OpenPeripheral to show the status of your turbines.

For the passive cooled reactor controller you can attach a monitor by wired modems. You need a wire to connect a monitor at the controller room. My be, i will create a remote monitoring in my next version.


Have fun, kla_sch
