Semi-Automatic Liquid Pump System


Recommended Posts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Dim2P-fLYA

This is a quick way to collect large amounts of any liquid using the mods in Attack of the B-Team. The modpack doesn't have any built in pumps so I came up with a quick way to collect a lot of lava for easy energy.

It can really work with any liquid though. You can clear out a pond of sewage or large areas of water quickly!

I know it's not game changing or anything, but I thought some people would find it useful. Let me know what you think!

Calling this a pump is a bit misleading, but instead is creatively using the player interface to unload buckets. This is great to get rid of liquids in large quantities but requires a lot of materials to make this viable and is by no means an early or mid-game thing. Another issue with this is its only set up for one liquid, in order to get this to work with multiple liquids would mean multiple of these setup or additional systems in place to then sort the liquid from this storage system.

Kalbinition, you are absoultely right.

However, I personally looking for anyway to somewhat efficiently (or even automatically) way get lava from the Nether to the overworld for power production. So far this is the most automated way. But then again, I am sure there must be other good and efficient ways.

I wish the nether pump would be implemented ;)

Automated sure, but it's also a fairly lategame (you need to be able to get wither stars) solution, and it's more of a time saver/convenience/curiosity at that point than really that useful.

 

Still cool though.

 

Or...

 

You use it in reverse and have it fill empty buckets with lava from a tank in the nether you filled up earlier?  What could you do with an effectively unending source of lava buckets?  (or actually unending if you've got lava fabs on the other end with enough power generation)

      Steps to remedy white screen after press play issue for build 4.493 OR Modpack fails to launch (applicable to any modpack) reopening launcher instead
      This topic is constantly being updated so feel free to check back on it.
      1. Sometimes logging off and logging back in solves a lot of program related issues.
         If logging off didn't work then it is a different software / config issue.
      2. Ensure you have the latest version of java. A lot of people may suggest to use java 7.
         However I would not recommend this. Reasons being:
         a. Java 8 contains the framework for java 7. each version is usually an improvement or addition.
         b. For me java 7 simply crashes my modpacks. Either it makes them unlaunchable or they crash too randomly.
      3. Some people recently have reported that downgrading java has fixed their problem. In which case uninstall and install java a version down at a time until you find what fixes it for you.
      4. Ensure you have the latest graphics driver.
         I have noticed that this problem tends to pop its head up the moment that a new graphics driver version is available but I haven't installed it yet.
         From a programmers perspective. And I have reason to believe that it has been like this for decades now (ever since ver.1 possibly)... 
         They most likely have a piece of code in the driver that literally reads as:
         
      if @DriverVer not @LatestVer then $error
         To throw a logged error without a message would be a much more subtle approach than just throwing an error with message.
         This would overload the CPU/GPU silently if it is repeated and also has the potential to slow down our HDDs from excessive read/write.
         I have reason to believe that this is done to (gently) force us to keep our drivers updated.
         I mean after all... outdated drivers never crash computers... they just simply make it run sslllooowwwww.
         So if you happen to notice similar behavior as soon as there is a driver update available (for any device), you will know why.
         Nothing that any of us can do really except to just keep our drivers up to date.
      This is from the knowledge an ex I.T. Technician Assistant
      5. Ensure you have allocated enough RAM in Launcher options under java settings. I would recommend at least half of your available RAM to leave enough for system operations.
      6. If you have a 64 bit system. use x64 java not x82. Using mismatched java can cause all sorts of problems. Why? Because your CPU / GPU needs to work in ways its not supposed to So in a way this can also cause blue screens!
      7. Sometimes just closing the launcher, making sure that all instances of javaw.exe are closed in task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del). and then reopening can solved white screen.
      8. Some times the white screen just needs a little patience. no longer than 10 minutes ideally however.
      9.
       

      Hope this tutorial helps, and if you guys find any other remedies for this most recent build feel free to post them below. I may or may not edit this post to include them. See if i have time but no promises ;). Will add any other fixes I find that are also common answers. If you feel any of them should be credited to anyone in particular do tell me ;). But in the interest of preventing Accidental Topic Spamming please PM me this info and I will do my best to update it ASAP.
       
      Edit: I think this should get pinned :).
