im having a problem with fluiducts from TD and the sewer and composter from minefactory.
I made a very simple system. just some fluiducts connecting between the sewer and the composter.
it worked for a few seconds' but then it stoped tranfering sewage although i connected the ducts proparly with servos (they are not depending on redstone - i did it in this always active mode) and the sewer is full of sewage.
im adding pictures of what i built.
can someone spot the problem?
p.s, earlier i tried to do the same thing with the grinder and the auto spawner - same problem
With tremendous support, Googling, forum diving and hours of tinkering I finally got my Fusion Reactor energy system up and running. The greatest single impediment turned out to be Liquiducts. I could not extract the liquid deuterium from the Chemical Extractor, I could not extract the liquid deuterium from an Ender Tank nor could I extract the steam from the Steam Funnels. (Actually I is was getting the tiniest hint of a vapor animated in the Liquiducts). I has used the wrench to set the connects to pump out fluids - the red arrow was visible. I was instructed several times that I need to use a Pneumatic Servo but I did not understand all that entailed.
To get a Liquiduct to pump efficiently on must have a Pneumatic Servo installed into the Liquiduct at the connection. This is accomplished by right clicking on said Liquiduct connection with the Pneumatic Servo in hand. You will receive a message in the bottom left of the screen indicating success or that there was one already present. Easy, yes?
Note - there is no visual difference to the Liquiduct when the Pneumatic Servo is installed.
If you haven't already set the Liquiduct to pump do so now.
Now to activate the GUI for the Liquiduct connection you must right click on it with an EMPTY HAND! Nothing else will open the GUI.
Here is the part that really beat me to death.
The Liquiduct has a Redstone Control on the Liquiduct when the Pneumatic Servo is installed - and it is set to the "off" position by default!!! So for just plain pumping installing the Pneumatic Servo isn't enough - you either have to "Disable" the Redstone Control or set it to "Low" - otherwise it won't work. I was distracted by the White List/Black List GUI and didn't see the little Redstone icon on the upper right until spending an hour looking for liquid deuterium in NEI in game and on the various internet forums.
In short for general Liquiduct pumping -
1. Attach Liquiduct to device you wish to pump from.
2. Install the Pneumatic Servo.
3. Use a wrench to set direction of flow/function to pump.
4. Use an empty hand on the connection to open the GUI.
5. Click on the Redstone icon in the upper right hand corner of the GUI and either "disable" Redstone control or set Redstone control to "low."
Once this was done all my problems went away. I could now pump my deuterium fluids around and I could extract steam from the Steam Funnels.
The only place I found indicating the presence of redstone controls and their default "high" redstone signal setting was here - http://forum.feed-the-beast.com/threads/direwolf-20-1-6-4-public-beta.35476/page-15#post-498515
I'm pulling my parts together to build my fusion reactor and was confronted with an "Electromagnet" and an "Atomic Electromagnet" in the NEI screen.
Does it matter which one is used? Is there any functional difference?
PS - I suppose its obvious but I am running 1.2.6b from a clean upgrade of 1.1.10 (whole new world)
