Ironmoose Posted July 3, 2013 Share Posted July 3, 2013 So much love for the magmatic engine. yet I find them boring. a few tips on combustion engines: do not use BC conductive pipes, or BC waterproof pipes, they just dont work/buggy. redstone energy conduit and liquiduct are your friend. using lava 1mj/tick using oil 3mj/jtick magmatics do 4mj/tick using fuel 6mj/tick 8 combustion to run my quarry at top speed. takes 11 magmatics to do that with .6 more mj the quarry can use^^ your engines will also overheat and use an insane amount of water when there is no where for the created energy to go. this can empty a fairly large infinite water source and leave you high and dry. I like to have 3x3 water for every engine i am cooling. might be overkill, but then so is using these engines in the first place lol I have also observed that my engines now no longer blow up 0.o. I get the explosion sound, then the engines just lock up at red. like the magmatics do. idk if this is the new tekkit, or some plugin from the server i am on. now go find some oil!
