Quarries and a list of everything they will pick up

Recommended Posts

I think it's everything. Lava and oil (sludge?)make them stop, otherwise they'll just plow along.

I use an AE system and just shove it all in. Not an early game solution, but it's awesome.

i meant what ores and regular blocks, just a list of all of the regular stuff, ill just make the extra stuff go to a chest, right now im just worried about things like, tin ore, copper ore, dirt, cobblestone, sand, etc

A Buildcraft Quarry will break any placeable block in its path, even machines. As for sorting, I recommend using a buffer chest at the Quarry and whitelist-pumping out the stuff that arrives, as it arrives. You will eventually get everything listed in your sorting queue, although it may take a while for rare stuff to show up first.

My early game quarry had a buffer chest going to a diamond sorting pipe. Crap went to a nullifier, and the rest to the base. Much easier to list what is bad than to list the good.

Later when I had item ducts, I used servos to whitelist / blacklist.

Endgame, when I run a quarry, I use a tesseract and dump it all into the AE system.

nah, I just stored everything in dsu's connected to my AE network using storagebuses...


you can use e.g. cobblestone to create singularities if you don't need it (or compress it)


but to the OP question:

the quarry just picks up everything!

So hard to make a list, but you can look into the wiki for blocks...

quarrys break blocks, so diamond ore will get diamonds and redstone ore will get redstone directly...


the most common blocks/items are:







obsidian (if you flood your quarrys)


these should definately go into a dsu

then all ores that you can find in the overworld ;)

simplest solution for these:

put them into AE Storage and create DSU's for them when you have set up a processing chain for them ;) (pulverizer, redstone furnace)

      Hello there, I have a question about my quarry. I've never seen this problem. So my quarry is powered up by a reactor and the power is sent wireless with the power teleport pipe. The Quarry works fast and fine but whenever I get close to it, it stops. The quarry works only when I am not near. It is a bit far from my house but not really that far. Let's say 256 blocks or something like that, even more. My items are also sent wireless with the item teleport pipe and I already built some Teleport Tethers and put them on the road to the quarry, thought it would help.

      Upon opening my technic launcher a couple of minutes ago, i noticed Tekkit Classic had deleted itself?! So I redownloaded it, my worlds still seemed to exist. But when I opened one I noticed half of my house ( which is built inside a hill) was dirt and stone again. So half of my house glitched away. Can anyone help me out please?

      I have no idea what I am doing wrong here. In the first image, I am inside my base/factory/building; whatever you want to call it. EU should be flowing from a full MFE into the Big Flux Generator, and from the Big Flux Generator into the Wooden Kinesis Pipe and finally into the Power Teleport Pipe. The Power Teleport Pipe is linked to the quarry shown in the second picture, which also has an Item Transport Pipe (the Item Transport Pipes are not yet linked). I previously tried to use Power Converters, but my High Voltage EU Consumer exploded as soon as I plugged it into the system. EDIT: I have also tried not using a Wooden Kinesis Pipe whatsoever.
      Please help me!
      P.S. Sorry about the image quality, I had to keep scaling each of them down until I was allowed to upload them both.

      SOLVED: I was using a Big Flux Generator, and not a Big Electric Flux Generator. Silly mistake, sorry everyone.

      Hi guys,
      does anyone know if chisel is compatible with the current version of tekkit? I know its included in other packs but it would be nice to pop it into my tekkit world so I could have more decorative blocks and such. If so, what version is compatible?
