MFR and generating power

Recommended Posts

So with the new MineFactory Reloaded update, steam turbines no longer accept water. This kind of messes up my whole system, as you can no longer use the aqueous accumulator/steam turbine combo for a small amount of infinite power.

 

Any have any idea what else I can use so I don't have to mine for coal all the time?

lol i have tested it and obtained a cheap reuseable automatic power

 

I just tested it, and a magma crucible takes 240k RF to make 1 bucket of lava, well the magmatic dynamo only generates 180k RF with 1 bucket of lava, So its losing 60k RF each time

This isn't mine but this guy posted this design here a few days ago. I duplicated it about 6 times and now these things power my entire base and I don't regret it one bit! Totally infinite power and super cheap.

ok so i did some exstinsive research on my thought and why it worked earlier and why its not working now.

i was in 1.0.9 i use 4 magma cruicibles with 5 magma dynamos for each going to their own redstone cell.

i was getting a glitch of a rapid transformation of cobble to lava so i was getting insane amounts of lava out of it and it worked properly.

once i couldnt get it to work as it did this morning i came up with something simular to what was posted above.

i am glad i checked back before i made a video lol.

but total thumbs up to the vid

Problem is that like Steam Turbines, it will be eventually fixed as it's a bug with the compatibility between Thermal Expansion and Galacticraft.

oh i wanna go ahead and mention that it is bugged lol and i do believe it might get fixed eventually.

if u dive into it u notice that the lava fabricator is recieving 16000 rf when the magma dynamo is only producing 80

I use BioFuel as my power and it seems to be wonderful. Get yourself a planter and a harvester. Go raid a village for carrots and potatoes. Pump them back into planter and when planter is full have your system pump them into a deep storage unit as a buffer and then pump out of DSU into BioReactor and pump out biofuel into open blocks tank as buffer and pump out from tank into bio generator and voila. Power

I have an automatic tree farm with a planter and harvester that constantly farms the trees. WIth the project red pipes im able to keep the planter stocked with sapplings and have all the wood sent to my pulverizers which dump the charcoal into all my steam dynamos so i have a never ending power plant.

I could work in making one probably. I'll set up a creative world and build it in there. I can definitely show the planter and harvester stuff but I'm not sure about the piping. It's pretty buggy and confusing alot of the times.

Alright, this was a quick (and ugly) build. I would've had it up earlier but the amount of trouble I had recording and uploading it was horrendous. But, here's the basics of the idea.

      Hey guys, 
      I'm trying to effeciently hook up an steam turbine...
      I have a max high pressure boiler (should produce 720mb/t of steam.. but how the hell do i draw this steam out at this rate?
      Best (non-effective-enough) method i could come up with is: Emerald Fluid Pipe on 12 places on one side of the boiler (12x 40mb/t =) 480mb/t ?!.... these would go in obsidian fluid pipes and those would go into 12 (!) fluid ports?? This seems really over the top right...
      So even 12 of these pipes on the sides is not enough to draw the steam out... or are my calculations wrong?
      Since liquiducts are not available.. or is there a good alternative??

      So, I built myself a turbine and a reactor to actually power the turbine with steam. Problem is I can't seem to find a way to make my reactor make more milibuckets per tick. Cause no matter what I do... I can't figure out how to speed up the actuall transfer of water into the reactor. I always end up with like 10-100mb/t. Since BC pipes allow me to transfer maximum of 80mB/t (obsidian pipes) I don't really know what to do. Oh and I don't know how to "pump" the water so fast... I'm a beginner after all  I'd be happy if someone helped me out... It's really annoys me. Thanks ^^

      FORLORN is my lastest modpack using 1.7.10
      In the near future where the world has been corrupted, Gone are the wildlife, Life as you know it destroyed but somehow you survived.

      It is up to you to put the world right once again but be warned it is not as it seems, plant life is almost gone, water is corrupt, the air is turning poisonous and the remaining life is not so HUMAN anymore. O and dont forget the land itself is unstable so BE CAREFUL!

      It'll take all your skills to make a living in this new world!

      Using the likes of enviromine and the wasteland mod gives this modpack a very apocolyptic feel along with steampunk style mods, so be wary of the caves as you get deeper your sanity starts to grow, thirst plays a big part along with body temperature and lastly the land itself will crumble from above so be careful!!

      Theres plenty of tech mods here to help with your survival so use them wisely.
      The pack can be found here: http://www.technicpack.net/modpack/forlon.654777

      A server is currently being developed so you can help fellow survivors to rebuild the land.
      MAKE SURE YOU SELECT WASTELAND FOR MAP OTHERWISE ITLL CRASH!

      Our modpack's primary and ONLY power type is Redstone Flux. No more mucking about with multiple power systems to perform simple tasks. This has allowed us to focus on where mod integration matters - between mods that were MEANT for each other - mods that developers created to specifically be compatible with RF. We are tired of trying to power Thermal Expansion machines with IC2 power, and we know you are, too.
      Seriously, why force a square peg in a round hole?
       
      This pack also includes a wide array of various hook-ins and addons for RF based mods, such as Draconic Evolution, Technomancy, Solar Flux, Fluxed Feeder Unit, & more!
       


       
      Our mod list has been carefully pruned and tested to ensure that all mods are compatible with each other to a point where they actually FEED off of each other!
      Have you ever wanted to charge your Thaumcraft wand using your Blood Magic blood network?
      How about boosting your Botania mana output using Redstone Flux?
      Perhaps you are tired of having a thousand Essentia Jars near your altar, & prefer to store it all in your ME network.
      Speaking of ME storage, who has ever dreamed of storing FLUIDS in it?
      Yes, all of this is possible and SO MUCH MORE. You will be able to create entirely new and unique setups utilizing the deep cross mod integration that this modpack offers you.
      No more mod compartmentalization.
       
      This pack focuses on 5 key aspects:
      Redstone Fluxed Material Processing & Production - Mekanism, Thermal Expansion, EnderIO & MineFactory Reloaded
      Magnificent Magical Mystification - Thaumcraft, Blood Magic, Botania & Witchery
      Integrated Inventory Management - Refined Relocation, Applied Energistics 2, Steve's Factory Manager, Iron Chests
      Awesome Agriculture & Breeding - Agricraft, Pam's Harvestcraft, Forestry, Biomes O Plenty
      Integration & Supplementation - ~~Large list of mods the supplement the ones listed above, such as Forestry Extras, ProjRed, Draconic Evolution, Forbidden Magic, Technomancy, Gany's, Another One Bites the Dust, and many more~~
       


      Because our modpack includes a lot of newer or otherwise unfamiliar mods that are not typically found in standard "kitchen sink" packs, we wanted to assist players with becoming familiar, and help them get out of the rut of the ye olde.
      Our quest system is designed to help you explore new mods. Not only that, but these quests will also help give you inspiration as to how to mix mods to yield new, exciting outcomes.
      Our modpack offers both new, unique mods as well as some familiar classics. This healthy mix of old and new will keep you familiar enough to make progress, but surprise you around every corner with new ways to do old things. For starters, we don't have BuildCraft. Wait, what!? How will you transport items and fluids, you ask? Refined Relocation and EnderIO, of course!
      This is just one of many examples.
      Note: Quests are work in progress and will be released in stages. Find the latest version of the quests at www.rebirthgaming.org/rebirth, or posted here.
      Version 1 - (Included in modpack)
      Version 2 now available!

      Our pack was designed with server hosting in mind. We have an official server that has been online for several months. Many of the choices we made during modpack development was based on how stable mods & configs were for servers. If something resulted in incompatibility or crashes, we either removed the source of the issue, or contacted appropriate development teams to resolve the issue.
      We are proud to announce that as of version 1.2.0, there will be a server pack download available. Feel free to grab it, drop it on your server, and host a party for your friends! We offer full support for our modpack. If you run into any issues with either single player use or server hosting, feel free to contact us! Your bug finding helps us keep our server stable as well as delivering the most stable versions to the public.
       


       
      ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
       
      ABOUT OUR SERVER
       
      Official Server IP: Rebirth.RebirthGaming.org

      Hosted via OVH.com
      7GB allotted + custom arguments to increase performance and ensure 24/7 uptime.
      Uses server side mods to ensure stability and lag free play.
      Officially supported - find us on our website or Teamspeak!
      World, Nether, and Twilight Forest worlds are pre-generated to eliminate chunk loading lag.
      Very few banned items (we only ban items to resolve conflicts or balance issues)
      Server configs are tweaked for max performance.
      Player economy has been established. Coins!!!
      This server is whitelisted, and will take requests for being added. Simply reach out to us on our website or Teamspeak and we will most likely add you.
      We have a one strike policy. We *expect* players to be respectful and mature. There is no grief protection, and we don't need it. Trustworthy players will not ruin gameplay for others, and griefers will simply never be allowed on our server.
      Our server's configs and settings runs almost identical to that of our pack's server/client downloads. I will, however, point out some key things that people usually want to know:
      All chunk loaders are disabled except for Railcraft's personal anchor. Requires ender pearls to load chunks. Requires the player to be online to load chunks.
      We utilize ZERO plugins. Why? Cauldron stopped being updated in Dec '14. That means it can only get buggier! We do, however, use AdminCommandsToolbox, Opis, and Forge Essentials. Basic permission system to keep certain mod commands off limits (or allow players to use certain commands, like cofh friend list) and set custom spawn location. Players also have access to some quality of life commands like /back and /tpa player.
      Regarding player ranks: To comply with mod developer licenses and wishes, and to comply with the Minecraft EULA, we do not sell items and features, and never will.
       
      KNOWN ISSUES

      Draconic Evolution wireless energy transceivers crash servers and clients. Has been resolved in latest DE snapshot, and will be included in next pack update.
