fusion reactor not working

Recommended Posts

i have made a few reactors before in all my time of playing voltz but ever since it went to 1.5.2, fusion reactors arent working as they are supposed to. has something changed?  also, how the hell do i get deuterium? the chemical extractor has changed!


is there anything wrong with the way its built? i had to spawn in some deuterium to test it.




thank you.

Hi.  Are you using the recommended version of Voltz?  If you are (version 2.0.4) try this...


From what I can tell from the pics the setup looks good.  Just remember you need to give your fusion reactor a jump start.  It requires 50 kilowatts for your fusion reactor to get started and continue to work.  I didn't see anywhere in the pics where your fusion reactor was hooked up to a power source.   I usually set up a system where a full basic energy cube is wired in to the fusion reactor, close by, and being refilled as the reactor is in full swing.


As for the chemical extractor, I would recommend the following:


Create an infinite water source (a horizontal line of 3 water with a source block at each end usually works for me).  Set a water pump just above the middle block and put your chemical extractor right next to the pump.  Be sure both are powered.  Open the GUI for the chemical extractor and put empty cells into the slot just to the left of the arrow pointing right.  (It's the slot just underneath the word 'chemical' in the GUI.)  As long as the pump and chemical extractor has power, whenever you put empty cells in the left slot, it should create deuterium in the right slot.


I hope this answers your questions.  Good luck.

      The reactor is based on few mods: Industrial Craft, Red Power, MFFS(Modular Force Field Systems), TubeStuff.
      Anything that is need is only quad uranium cells and nothing else. Reactor creates coolcant itself. Its coolcant is lapis, you may already get the idea (LZH condensators cooled by coolcant injector from MFFS.
      This is the total schematic of reactor, producing 10k EU / tick,storing total 32 MFSU's. Blucricity is the near heart of not letting the reactor explode, because Retrievers will not function. And also, some energy total is consumed to produce mass, and convert it to lapis. There is also a regulator that dosent let all 3 sections of coolcant run at once.
      1 sec = 20 ticks
      10000 secs of running reactor times 20 ticks = 200000 ticks
      200000 ticks times 2580 EU / tick is.. 516000000 EU. I dont know how many MFSU storage has cus I dont remember but I know that it is 100% safe reactor.

      Tried to look for other threads, couldn't find any..
      I'm on a tekkit server with a friend, and we're building a large underground base. We would like to use lamps like the Cage lamps and Lanterns from ProjectRed, and that all of these are powered by reactors/dynamoes. So that we would always need legit energy for them to illuminate, and not a simple minecraft redstone line which basically gives infinite power.
      For now we're using a simple steam dynamo from Thermal Expansion, but i cant seem to get the cage lamps or lanterns to light up. We tried both energy conduits from Thermal Expansion and RedNet cables/RedNet Energy cables from MineFactory, and we tried to combine them too.
      Does anyone know how to illuminate these light sources using dynamoes/generators/reactors and some sort of cable?
      Or maybe some other alternatives?
      Thanks a lot in advance!

      Is there a modpack which combines tekkit classic and voltz?
