Other methods of moving liquid


Recommended Posts

So heres my problem.


I setup a quarry and then hit a huge underground oil lake.


So I can not mine deeper without moving the liquid, and this would apply to water and lava as well.


Is my ONLY option for getting the liquid out a buildcraft pump? with its stupidly slow descending pipe?


Am I missing something or is this ONE PUMP the only option we have for moving liquid from location A to location B besides buckets?

Quarries go through water. Keep water in quarry to turn lava into cobble/obsidian. Oil is the only real problem. When I found oil I just moved the quarry >.<


Or I guess you could collect it for fuel for combustion engines or galacticraft.

If you just want to remove the oil, you can also (temporarily?) add lava, which should turn the oil to cobblestone, iirc.


I think the ender-thermic pump might be an alternative as well, but I read somewhere that it is only enabled by default in the Nether, which can be changed in a config file. I did not test this myself.
