Montego_Cardoso Posted July 24, 2013 Share Posted July 24, 2013 So I was standing in my front yard, looking at a huge oil geyser, and thinking, "I should collect that, but where can I put it?" We have great storage systems for items, like iron chests, deep storage units, even entire ME networks, but what about liquids? It would take hundreds of glass tanks to store the thousands of buckets of oil I was standing on. Dear forums, how do you store your mass amounts of liquids in Tekkit? I'll tell you my idea, you can tell me yours. I first checked the forums for mentions of liquid storage. That's when I found Gildan27 mention the Liquid Manager. (http://forums.technicpack.net/threads/biofuel-struggle.48750/page-5#post-406547) A block that holds 128 buckets? Great! But they are't designed to interconnect like tanks, each one will need liquiduct inputs and outputs, and redstone signal. And I want the systems to be efficient and expandable, to easily add more room when I need it. A layered approach should work! So, here's a small layer system. One redstone block (or rednet cable for multilayers), four liquiducts, and four liquid managers, for 512 bucket capacity per layer in 3x3 block space. Liquiduct and redstone lines accessible from the top or bottom. Can be stacked indefinitly. Also, medium sized layers. one signal block, eight liquiducts, eight liquid managers, 1024 buckets per layer in 5x5 block space. And, large layers. four signal blocks, twelve liquiducts, sixteen liquid managers, 2048 buckets per layer in 7x7 block space. runs the most managers on the fewest ducts. Bonus: the large layer has four independant liquid segments, for storing up to four different liquids. Bonus bonus: the space in the middle of a large layer can hold a small layer, for a fifth independant liquid, or a total 2560 buckets per layer. Since gravity has no effect, these layers can also be build on their sides and stacked horizontally. Now the question is whats the best way to hook up the ins and outs to the system...
