Powering a reactor?

Recommended Posts

I have spent days trying to find ways to give the plasma heater power to run.

So far every item in the game that can power gives nothing at all to it.

Am i missing something or is this a bug that essentially you cant get power at all for reactors?

It has to have deuterium and tritium as well as 10gj (the only thing powerful enough is a tier 2 or 3 battery) and then you pipe it to a tank and pipe it to the reactor chamber with fluiduct pipes + servos turned on. 


It takes 4 chemical extractors and about 50gj of seed power to get the thing running well, 2 chemical reactors focused on deuterium 2 on tritium. 

 

The universal electricity youtube page has a video showing exactly how to do it. 


There is a problem depending on what version your running though. Sometimes the turbines stop running because the water stops producing steam do to a chunk load error when you leave the chunk, or a block update error when you change a block in the chunk. It doesn't always do this but it does sometimes.

Ok so i've managed to get everything wired in however even though the plasma reaction is occuring it refuses to output any power.

Seems to be a hit and miss with charging.

One minute we will have a fully charged battery, then the next nothing, all the while reactions still happening.

Duplicated in singleplayer it works fine.

Is there some oddity i have set on the server?
