mjh410 Posted July 5, 2012 Share Posted July 5, 2012 I want to run geo-thermal power from 2 volcano's really close to my processing plant. I also will be building some quarries. I have been reading up on Buildcraft pipes and engines and have a few questions. To operate the pump for the lava I will need a combustion engine. Which will need oil and water and I should refine the oil into fuel. So then I will also need combustion engines for the pumps pumping the water, oil, and running the refinery. I will also need each combustion engine to have a source of fuel and water. I do not want to have to manually fill these all the time. 1. So does that mean I will have to have two pipe systems going to each and every combustion engine, one with water and one with fuel? As well as the original output pipes that are pumping out the water, oil, lava, and fuel? 2. If that is correct can the water pipe and fuel pipes be split off into several directions going to each engine? 3. Can a redstone engine pump the water, lava, oil, fuel, etc out of the storage tanks regardless of distance? 4. Is there a waterproof version of a teleport pipe that could be used to teleport the fuel, water, and lava to where they need to be? 5. I have read in most places that redstone engines cannot overheat and cannot explode, but then I have also read in some that they can, so what is correct regarding this? I think I understand what needs to be done, but I'm not sure, it seems like a lot of work for something as simple as trying to get some lava down to my processing plant to provide me with some EU's during the nighttime as I slowly acquire the materials to cover my roof with Solar flowers. Although maybe it's supposed to be this much work to make it automated. Thanks in advance for your help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
