Redstone Pneumatic Pipe Signal Distance?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been asked, but while setting up my multi colored sheep farm, I noticed that the distance a signal can travel on the redstone pneumatic tube is about 10 blocks. Im guessing this was changed in the update of Redpower. How do you get around this?

Could you post an image of your setup? The signal length should be in the hundreds.

yea I know right! In regular tekkit I've built huge red power quarries with no problem, but I make a small wool farm and it barely goes 10 blocks. I'm at work now, I'll post a picture when I get home.

So your saying I should go though all the effort of making two types of wire and then use 2 pieces of them when I could just use one piece of redstone? Redstone that I have crazy amounts of?

Just do what warpspeed10 says because what he is saying is exactly the recomended thing to do. By the way, I tested it and it seems that using the jacketed wire and alloy wire does make the signal go much further than just redstone dust.

That was the problem. I replaced it with alloy wire and solved the problem. ALthough its wierd since I didnt have this problem in regular tekkit though. Ah well, heres the pic anyway, updated with alloy wire of course.
