Mooshroom Power! Infinite Free* Clean** Energy


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the latest innovation in power generation. Mooshroom Power. With the recent decline in magma generators and the massive data destruction caused by bugged or exploit methods of power production, Steve's everywhere have been wondering how to produce power in Attack of the B-Team. Look no further!

 

The Gist:

Mooshroom trophy generates mushrooms for your BioFuel Generator.

 

The Setup:

You use an Open Blocks Mooshroom trophy on top of 3x3 Mycelium or dirt in a darkened room. Underneath the trophy is an Autonomous Activator. It clicks the trophy and 8 brown mushrooms appear on the surrounding blocks. A Harvester collects the mushrooms and sends it to a BioReactor turning it into Biofuel, which connects to two BioFuel Generators. Place a Null under the Harvestor if you don't use sludge. The only thing that requires power is the Harvestor and that is minimal to upkeep. Whole set up takes up about 9x2x18 and generates ~360 RF per tick. 

 

Cost:

The main problem here is getting the Mooshroom Trophy. All other materials are readily obtainable and with the manual input of the first 8 mushrooms requires no outside input. An Auto-Spawner or a Breeder/Grinder are your best method of obtaining the trophy. This probably means that it won't be your first power system. 

 

Pros:

Small self maintained free energry at 360 RF per tick.

Can be used in conjunction with other biofuel farms to get better efficiency. 

Infinite Brown Mushroom if you need it for something. 

 

Cons:

Hard to get trophy

Probably won't be your first set up

Constant mooing near setup.

I haven't had the chance to test this yet...but you are saying that one mushroom produces 360 RF per tick?

So that 8 pieces of mushroom produce enough biofuel to get 360 RF/tick out of it? But...for how long? How much did you really get out of it?

 

Do you have pics?

Not one mushroom, but one Mooshroom Trophy attached to this system can produce 360 RF per tick infinitely. You actually get a little more but adding a third generator only sort of works. Any additional input would tip this over to a third easily. Three of these set ups could run 7 generators. I'm unsure if 2 of this set up could run 5 or not. 

 

EDIT: Pics now there for viewing pleasure

EAS - do you see how many blocks this takes?  This is a nicely portable and compact system that would only take a few minutes to set up, you could have it in a side-room on a mars base within 10 minutes of getting there.  It's also a useful use for a trophy :D

7*7 room with grinder+observer room+energy room, not that big

@EAS. Not sure how u get free power from those spawners, nor how you are easily going to get them to one location. 

 

@Islands. Thanks, glad you like it. Let me know if you stumble upon any improvements. 

Im using 8 reactant dynamo with gunpowder/sugar and glowstone/redstone ,each gives me 80 per tick(80*8=640 per tick) and i have infinite source of gunpowder/sugar/sticks/creeper-heads/potions etc.

EAS, I've done some screenshots to help explain the size a bit better;

That's a generator that provides 360RF/tick that fits in 5x3x2 - less than 2 solar panels.  I've added a nullifier on a side to get rid of the sludge (it used to slow the machines down if they filled up with sludge, dunno if that's the case) but on mars/moon you could use sludge boilers to get all sorts of resources that are otherwise not available there too if you wanted (useful if you wanted to actually move there for some reason).  For a big base sure - reactant dynamos are usually what I use (with blaze spawners as they're easy to get and blaze powder is a great reactant) but even the spawning chamber of the design you're talking about would fit 2 of these.

Well i have alredy set up witch+creeper spawners, im too lazy to find a moshroom trophy and create that setup.

BUT i used your idea, instead of using moshroom, im using saplings,potatoes and carrots from the tree farm :)

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong - by the time you can make this setup it very likely won't be an upgrade (mooshroom trophy drop is 1/1000 chance by default), but if you're space limited (you play PvP on a factions server and it needs to be in a chunk to be safe, you're in a moonbase and you want to have it inside for some reason, you screwed up your house and only have a small room available etc.) or time limited (you want to get a full system set up on a planet/moon before you run out of air, you're travelling and setting up mini-labs for genetics or processing all over the place).  I wouldn't call it the 'best' overall, but it's probably the best generator I've seen that fits in that space (or can be built that fast).

 

There are easier methods that take more time to build - a treefarm powering combustion engines for example.

There are more powerful methods that take more time and space - even a treefarm version of this is more efficient and cheaper while being larger and more complicated.

There are more portable methods that don't stand alone - tesseracts can have power flowing in the instant you arrive at a destination if you don't care about it actually being made on location.

 

Also.. it moos like crazy.  I'd probably want a switch on the bottom of that activator (even though that's making it 3x3x5) simply to shut that up after a while :D

Generikb used the same method on his space station. Is that where you got the idea?

It's a pretty standard setup, that or treefarms have been something people have been using in technic packs for what seems like ages.

 

With the ability to make glowstone these days (energized glowstone meeting gelid cryotheum) that's a much more efficient and cheaper option than mob essence that frees the mob essence up for spawners or enchanting, though you still need to spawn mobs (probably blazes because of how easy their spawners are to find and for blaze powder) in order to get reactants - sugar farms start to get insanely large.

 

A really early option is sugar farms and sewage - it's easy to convert from the setting up food at the start of the game to that system quickly, and it can be reused mostly in all the later versions of that system too.

      I've made a nuclear reactor in multiplayer. The reactor is from big reactors, so it outputs RF. As visible on the image, I made a conversion setup but it is not working. The MFE is not getting charged at all, even though everything on the energy bridge looks fine and it's fully charged. What am I not seeing?

      Hello all,
      I've managed to create a very compact blaze rod emc generator for Tekkit Legends that fits within a 3x4x4 space, in a couple hours it can generate enough emc to make a full set of gem armor, and now I have several stacks of red matter furnaces laying around. It also doesn't have any laggy components and can easily keep up with the EMC needs of everyone on my server. This design might work on other versions of Tekkit, if someone wants to test it out then let me know.
      Project 71 EMC Generator
       
      This is a basic tutorial of how to build it, however this is an END GAME emc factory and has some fairly expensive pieces. If you are looking for something a lot cheaper (and slower) then check out this economy version. Also, if you are unfamiliar with some of the items in the resources list then don't be afraid, this guide should cover how to set them up and break it down into bite sized steps.
      The resources you will need are:
      8 high voltage solar panel or a an equivalent EU power source 7 MFSU or an equivalent EU storage system 2 energy condenser MK2 4 item teleport pipes 2 power teleport pipes or an equivalent RF power source. You will also need an RF power teleport system in order for these pipes to receive power. To learn how to do this, click here. You don't need a whole lot of RF, but being able to teleport it is very useful. 3 cobblestone kinesis pipe 4 flux pipe 1 macerator 8 glass fibre cable 2 iron transport pipe 2 clay transport pipe 6 wooden transport pipe 16 overclocker upgrade 2 transformer upgrade 1 energy storage upgrade 1 blaze rod (at least) The resources above can be made from the following raw materials:
      32 red matter 32 dark matter 155 diamond (2 stacks +27) 41812 refined iron ingot (653 stacks +20) 71 iron ingot (1 stack +7) 142 gold ingot (2 stacks +14) 29158 copper ingot (455 stacks+38) 16601 tin ingot (259 stacks +25) 8 clay 21 bronze ingot  2 sugar 113 coal (1 stack +49) 1 charcoal 12288 coal dust (192 stacks) 25482 redstone dust (398 stacks +10) 14 glowstone dust 266 lapis lazuli (4 stacks +10) 55314 rubber (864 stacks +18) 8 obsidian 3 flint 2103 wood planks (32 stacks +55) 12328 glass (192 stacks +40) 32844 cobblestone (513 stacks +12) 1 blaze rod The total emc cost is 44167992, but the vast majority of this cost comes from the cost of the high voltage solar panels. These also take a long time to craft on top of how expensive they are, which is why I would recommend this guide if you have not already crafted them.
      This device will still work even if you don't have all of these HV solar panels and MFSUs, but it will not work nearly as fast (and make that horrible noise that macerators make when they don't receive enough power).
      This design uses flux pipe to transfer RF power, and that requires making sweet redstone ingots. These are very cheap and extremely useful, but they are a headache to make, which is why I would recommend learning how to from here.
      When choosing an area to build this thing, remember that like most other machines it has to be in a loaded chunk in order to run while you aren't near it. The source it is getting RF power from must also be in a loaded chunk. You can either build them in a spawn chunk, or you can use a world anchor to keep them loaded. You can also use a teleport tether, but world anchors seem to be less buggy and after a very very long time will run out of juice, meaning that if someone drops down a world anchor somewhere on the server and forgets about it then it wont be using up processing power forever. I would also recommend embedding the whole thing in the ground so that it isn't sticking out like a sore thumb.
      Embedded EMC Generator

      IMPORTANT: DO NOT BREAK ANY MFSUs OR SOLAR PANELS WITH A PICKAXE!! If you are planning on building this thing then you know how expensive they are, and they will turn into useless machine blocks unless you break them with a wrench.
      Now that you have a (very long) shopping list, we can get started on how to put this monster together. For the sake of simplicity, I've broken it down into layers.
      First Layer (bottom)
       
      It is a pretty simple layer, but you have to be careful about which direction the iron pipes are flowing. Right click the lower iron pipe with a wrench until the clear end is facing toward the clay pipe on the bottom. For the iron pipe on top (circled in red), it is going to be a little bit more stubborn. I'm not sure if it is a glitch or intentional, but iron pipes have issues connecting to wooden pipes. To force it to do what you want, you will have to temporarily replace the wooden pipe in the black circle with a different type of pipe, then use the wrench to direct the iron pipe in the correct direction. Once the iron pipe is correct, then you can add the wooden pipe back in. Watch this GIF to see exactly how to do it. Next add a blaze rod as the target for your energy condenser MK2. if you are wondering if you can get away with a normal condenser instead of a MK2 condenser, then sadly the answer is no. This emc generator has a very high output and a regular condenser can't keep up, so your pipes will get overloaded and likely explode unless you use a MK2 condenser.
      GUI for Energy Condenser MK2 with Target Set to Blaze Rods

      IMPORTANT: DO NOT ADD IN THE GLASS FIBRE CABLE YET! Before inserting the cable, you must first place down your macerator and add in 2 transformer upgrades. If you connect the macerator to a HV solar panel before doing so, it will explode! Also, while you are at it, add in 16 overclocker upgrades and 1 energy storage upgrade. If your macerator GUI does not look like the one in the picture, you probably have a rotary macerator instead of a regular one.
                                                                  Second Layer
             
      Power Teleport Pipe GUI

      Once you add in the upgrades, you may now connect the solar panel to the macerator using glass fibre cable like in the photo. In order for your power teleport pipes to work, they must both be set to the frequency of your power teleport system, and be in "receive only" mode like in the picture. Alternatively if you didn't make a power teleport system, then you will need to remove the power teleport pipes and kinesis pipes then connect combustion engines up to all of your wooden transport pipes. However, combustion engines will need to be restocked with fuel and run the risk of exploding so I would highly recommend you make a power teleport system (link is in the list at the beginning).
      The wooden transport pipe (circled in black) needs to have the solid side facing the macerator, if the solid side is facing the condenser instead, then give it a whack with your wrench to fix it. Also, another wooden transport pipe underneath the macerator will need to be fixed as well, this one also needs to have the solid side facing the macerator. Watch this GIF to see what I'm talking about.
      Third Layer
       
      Use your handy-dandy wrench to make sure the iron pipe is facing the clay pipe. Also use the wrench to make sure that all three of the MFSUs are facing the glass fibre cable. This GIF should sum it up.
      Fourth Layer (top)

      Once you have the last of your high voltage solar panels and your MFSUs in place, then just use the wrench again to make the MFSUs face your glass fibre cables. The MFSU circled in black is easy to adjust, but the three MFSUs in the red circles are a bit trickier. You must go up underneath the device and use a wrench on the bottom of those three MFSUs to make them face the fibre cable, as shown in this GIF.
      Just a few final steps before it is up and running. Remember the item teleport pipes from Layer 1 and Layer 3? They need their frequencies set up as well.
      Setting up the Item Teleport Pipes
          
      The item teleport pipe in the black circle and the item teleport pipe in the red circle must have the same frequency. If you already have teleport pipes in your world then be sure not to choose a frequency that is already being used. For the sake of this example, lets set the frequency of these two pipes as 1. Make sure the item teleport pipe in the black circle is in "send only" mode and that the item teleport pipe in the red circle is in "receive" only mode. The item teleport pipe in the yellow circle should be at a different frequency than the other two, for this example set it to a frequency of 2. Once you've chosen a frequency put it in "send only" mode.
      Item Teleport Pipe GUIs: Setting Frequencies and Modes

      Now there should only be two blocks left unplaced: an energy condenser MK2 and one last item teleport pipe. Choose a convenient location in your world (probably next to a transmutation table) where you would like to receive emc and place down your condenser MK2. Next put the last item teleport pipe under your condenser MK2 and set it to the same frequency as the item teleport pipe in the yellow circle. Also set the item teleport pipe in the blue circle to "receive only" mode. The condenser hooked up to the item teleport pipe in the blue circle has to be an MK2 condenser otherwise it will overflow and throw blaze rods all over your nice home. You should set the target of the condenser MK2 to be a stackable item with very high emc value. I use red matter furnaces, but if you can not afford to make one, then use something like dark matter or red matter. After the emc generator has been running for a couple minutes you will have enough emc for a red matter furnace so don't worry too much about it.
      After you have chosen a target for the condenser then return to the emc factory and double check that all of your iron and wooden transport pipes are facing the correct directions. Also makes sure that your flux pipes are powered (they should show that they have ~8000/8000 RF). Also make sure that all your MFSUs are facing into the glass fibre cables. Now throw a few blaze rods into the macerator. If it starts churning out blaze powder and manufacturing blaze rods then you've created a functioning emc mega-generator! If you are wondering if it is working correctly, then this should give you an idea of how fast it should look at full efficiency: Flow Inside Pipes, Macerator Speed.
      Unless you are making gem armor and throwing it in lava then your new Project 71 emc generator should produce more emc than you could use!
      Finished Project 71 EMC Generator

      TROUBLESHOOTING:
      If after a few minutes then your machine starts spitting blaze rods/power everywhere then either your transport pipes aren't hooked up correctly or your item teleport pipes aren't at the right frequencies.  if your machine doesn't start up at all then you may not have the right upgrades in the macerator, or your flux pipes aren't receiving RF power. Another potential issue is that your macerator might have blaze powder stuck in its input slot instead of blaze rods. You can check if your pipes are receiving power by hovering over them. You can tell if your power teleport pipes are sending power if there is a blue stream of energy flowing through the cobblestone kinesis pipes.  If your cobblestone kinesis pipes DO NOT have a stream of blue energy flowing through them then there is something wrong with your RF power supply. This is probably because the RF generator is in an unloaded chuck or your world anchor has run out of ender pearls. If neither of these things is the problem, then try breaking your energy bridge and putting it back down. (this is a bug that sometimes occurs when teleporting power across a server) If your machine is running slowly, then it is not receiving enough EU to power it at full efficiency (remember, this thing chews through 7-8 HV solar panels worth of EU). If you have all 8 solar panels connected up to it, then I would double check that your MFSUs are facing the correct directions and that there are no "solid" blocks directly above the solar panels. After a minute or two then all of your wooden transport pipes should be flowing with either blaze powder or blaze rods. If not then either your flux pipes are not receiving power or your wooden pipes are facing the wrong way. If you see blaze powder and blaze rods flowing through the same pipe, this is normal. So long as the macerator always has a supply of blaze rods to grind then it is not losing any efficiency. If it grinded up the blaze rods you put in initially, but then the macerator ran out of blaze rods then it probably wasn't a big enough stack to get it started. Restock the macerator with a larger stack of blaze rods. If there is a large number of blaze rods bouncing back and forth inside the pipe (and not entering the condenser, then you might have mistaken a clay pipe for an iron pipe. Also, an iron pipe may be facing the wrong direction. To fix this, turn off the emc machine and break the pipe to let the items drain out, then replace it facing the correct direction and restart the emc machine.

      Ive build some Magnetic dynamos and lavafabricators for infinte Lava = infite energy, but they need too much lava , so build more lava fabricators, but it didnt work.
      Is there another way to create  a alot of lava? (PICTURE: https://www.pic-upload.de/view-32722914/Dynamo.png.html

      Hey guys
       
      this is my first post on this forum, i have been playing tekkit classic for a few days now and I am now using solar panels (industrial craft) to power my base, me and my friends started our own private server yesterday. My base is fairly small with only extractor, electric furnace, compressor and macerator. I do intend to expand it but at the moment I am using 25 solar panels and I am not recieving nearly enough energy. What would you guys reccomend I do. I need advice on how many I should build and install as well.
