Pump and oil


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !

I don't know if it's a bug or not so i'm asking first but when i try to pump some oil, the pump dont request any power and just stay there, useless. It works fine on water with buildcraft and thermal pipes. Is there something i dont know ?

Is this 'oil' slightly transparent and in a pool on the surface; if it is, that's not oil it's sludge. I don't believe the BC pump can handle either sludge or waste (brown liquid). If this is actually oil, then post a screenshot so I can get a better idea of what's wrong.

I didn't confuse it, i've tried on three differents fluids, there's only water being pump. Here is the screenshot, setup is the same for all liquid. (When u r.click on the engine, it store energy when the pipes is full)

TBH Both sludge and sewage pools are uneccesarry and way too common, is there any way to config them out?

Navigate to '\.technic\bigdig\config\powercrystals\minefactoryreloaded\Common.cfg'. To simply make the less common, alter the lines:




To disable them completely, find the line


and change the value to false.
