How good are Project Red's item pipes ?


Recommended Posts

Logistic Pipes are crashing tekkit, so I was looking for a replacement to them, and I don't really want to use an ME system (these are not really fun). So I looked on Project Red's pipe, but I was told that they are (or at least were) really server intensive. Is that still true for 1.2.9d ? They work exactly like Logistic pipes but are better looking, and I like to see items moving in pipes.

After some testing, they seem to work fine, the items in the pipes blink some times, but it's fast, efficient and doesn't seem to make a server lag. Downside: expensive, pain to craft because need so many dyes or colored sapplings when you want something big (I'm using them in a colored trees farm, so wasn't really a problem)

Good to know they will work when an alternative is required. However, Itemducts work fine for me in most cases - and an ME network does have its merits in late game for all cases which Itemducts won't cover well. For speed, Impulse Itemducts can be surprisingly useful.

      Hello Technic-Community
      I got a very strange problem with my modpack.
      I created a modpack with some mods inside, for example IC2, Buildcraft, Wasteland and Project Red with the MrTJPCore.
      The Problem is, everytime, I startup the modpack, the MrTJPCore gets deleted and I don't know why. I spectated it, during the startup of my modpack, and all of a sudden, the core wasn't there anymore.
      Anybody can help me? I would very appreciate it.
      Greetings

      I'm trying to put Project Red in a private modpack but regardless of whether or not I have CodedChickenCore (CodedChickenLib-x.x.x-x.x.x.xxx.jar), I still get [09:25:51] [Client thread/ERROR]: The mod ProjRed|Core (ProjectRed) requires mods [ForgeMultipart, CodeChickenCore] to be available in the log file. Here's the full log, by the way: Log file hosted on pastebin What am I doing wrong? How can I fix it? I mean, besides using a different logic mod such as RedLogic, obviously.

      I've heard rumour of project red pipes crashing multiplayer servers. Not wanting to go through that heart ache I have strayed anyone on the server from using them for now. Is there any truth to the rumours that the project red stuff crashes the servers?
