jakalth Posted March 15, 2014 Share Posted March 15, 2014 Define plunge bore: A mining machine designed to dig or "plunge" strait down into the ground. This is a challenge just for fun, for those playing around with the newest version of tekkit. The points don't really matter so feel free to give yourself a bonus of X points just for trying. Requirements: 1:The machine should be able to mine up a roughly 9x9 too 11x11 hole all the way down too bedrock. If the hole is not square, that is just fine as well. 2: It needs to be unaffected by both lava and water. 3: It needs to be able to move it's self around as a single construct, as in being able to move too a completely new work site under it's own power. Everything needed to operate it needs to be contained inside the machine with one exception. Power can be produced remotely to save space and cost. 4: bonus points for making the machine using only vanilla, Redstone in motion, and Applied energistics. Thermal Expansion can be used for power generation/transmission if required. 5: SUPER bonus points if you can make it mine down to bedrock automatically. 6: These kittens over here will be saved if the machine can return too the surface on its own after hitting bedrock. Have fun with this challenge and remember, no picture = it did not happen. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
