Steve From Marketing Posted September 19, 2013 Share Posted September 19, 2013 Hey, New Tekkit (1.1.8) player here with some questions I haven't found any definite answers yet: Which is the correct wiki to browse for information about Tekkit 1.1.8? Googling around I've found about a dozen wikis saying different things when it comes to different mods and this is very confusing. Quarry, steam (TE) engine and conductive pipes. This is what confuses me the most at this moment. I have 1 quarry, 8 steam engines (TE steam engines, NOT stirling) and they're hooked up with gold conductive pipes. When I turn all the engines on they start out generating 4 MJ/t (Technicpack wiki says it only generates max 2 MJ/t) and their internal capacity goes to 0->80->0 and this is what I was expecting. But after a while I go look on them again and 4 of the steam engines have their internal capacity maxed out at 4000. If one steam engine generates 4 MJ/t and times 8 is 32 MJ/t. According to technicpack.net wiki quarry can take (maybe?) up to 48 MJ/t. So why are the steam engine internal capacities maxing out? Am I just wasting fuel keeping those 4 steam engines on? I have the engines in two rows, each engine is connected to the gold conductive pipes with a wooden conductive pipe. The pipes from the engines are linked together and only a single gold conductive pipe goes to the quarry. What is the status of conductive pipes in 1.1.8? I take it they do not explode anymore? Do they have some sort of limit on how much MJ/t or MJ/s they can transmit? Do they still waste power per block transmitted as some wikis say? Makeshift battery does not hold it's charge. Ok this might be error on my side but it does not seem to keep it's charge. I have 2 steam (TE) engines connected to a makeshift battery which then is connected by a single line that divides into 3 different lines and connects to induction smelter, pulverizer and powered furnace. I look the machine internal capacities and they're full and the machines are not processing anything. Makeshift battery is at 10,000 MJ and I turn steam engines off and the battery starts to bleed power around 1 MJ/s (maybe a bit more). Do the machines (Powered furnace, pulverizer, induction smelter) "consume" energy even when they're not processing anything and their internal capacity is full? Do I have to connected them to my rednet cable network and hook them up to levers that turn them "off" or something like that? Land marks, can I create a quarry area that is not a rectangle? For example a penta-, octa or hexagon? Or does it always have to be a rectangle? For the life of me I cannot figure these out. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
