Effective leather production?


Recommended Posts

First of all, I'm new to this forum so hello everybody and thank you Technic team for bringing us brilliant content

But back on topic, while I enjoy Voltz, I was just wondering whether or not there was a more effective way to produce leather in game?

I mean, that's one hell of a cow farm you need to do some decent wiring.

It can get a bit laborious as demand for wires increases :)

Thanks in advance for your responses!

That's pretty much it. I've been having problems with NEI and cheat mode on personal server side so what I've been ha ing to do is make a boat and sail away. Commit cattle genocide and load up on leather, travel the 2000km back to my base of operations to make a handful of wire, rinse and repeat. I'm in desert biome and cows are scarce. I found a huge sand castle so moved in but I'm thinking today I get the household on the server, load up all our crud in the castle and move to another abandoned temple I found near cows to make a farm so I can slap em with wheat and make cow babies to cull for the measely leather. I'd much rather be using rubber again.

If you're setting up your own server (or are playing SP), you can enable the old wiring recipe that uses wool instead of leather. To do so, edit config/UniversalElectricity/ElectricExpansion.cfg, and replace the line "B:Use_Wool_In_Wires=false" with "B:Use_Wool_In_Wires=true". Note that this'll leave the recipes using leather alone: should you want to disable those, that's the line above.

In my experience, this helps a lot, especially if you want to build lots of electromagnets. After all, you needn't kill sheep for their wool, you can just shear them.
