firstdeathmaker Posted February 18, 2012 Share Posted February 18, 2012 Hi, I wanted to make a new topic on the machines we are building with the Technicpack. I want to see all of your best masterpieces, maybe together with some descriptions (How much power, what genious redstone steering is behind them etc.). And of course I dont just start this topic without having something to present: My still WIP High-Tech Base: It's an almost totally underground base. The entry is a big tree where I build my first shelter house on top. The solar flower on the right side produces almost all Industrial Craft Energy (EU) that I need though I didn't got most of the ressources from mining but through Thaumcraft / EE. When we take the ladder that is located inside the bole, we come to the IC² Crafting bench. On the opposite side of the bench there is a chest where all smelable ores are collected (after beeing sorted out from the other stuff within my big underground mine system). This is the assembly workshop: Its designed to help me crafting masses of machines without building a new specialized setup for a new item I want to craft. The right side has 2 x 2 assembly steps (like for making copper-cables and after that making batteries and chips out of them). The left side has 4 assembly steps that build a circle, so I can craft everything that has 4 assembly steps. Redpower2 LED's on the floor below each lever remind me shutting them down after use This is my first heavy machine: A biofuel refinary. The blue lever switches the water pump on (3 redstone engines). The green starts the 3 fermenters which are powered by 3 electrical engines from forestry. the orange lever starts the filters to make orange biofuel out of the green liquid biomass. The white levers are for pumping the liquid to the next stage. The fuel is stored in 3 medium tanks (3 * 12 Tankblocks = 576 Buckets). From there it can be pumped into 3 Electrical generators who produce EU out of it. The whole thing is more a energy-storage than a energy producing measurement. Now we are coming closer to my newest and biggest machine: The oil-refinery. This are 4 x 3 x 12 = 144 Blocks of tanks (2304 buckets), only for black raw oil. That is enaugh to store oil from 3-6 offshore oil-wells. This is the refinary itself. It consists out of 10 modules. On the right side you see 6 Tanks. The left three are very big (50 Block high to the ground, means the can store 2400 Buckets of fuel). The right ones are beeing prepared to be also as big (tanks are almost complete, I only need to do some mechanics and connect the small ones with their lower bigger counterparts). Here you can see the lower part of the 6 tanks of the previous picture. The cables are going down to steer the pumps from the refinery without having to climb down that big hole . The hole is a remain of my mining operations. This is the power-plant providing the buildcraft-energy for my refinary. It consist out of 40 combustion engines. They provide their own water cooling. Although this room is already a bit older, I redesigned the interiour (after an accident with some magic slimes...). It is the Thaumatorium where I produce diamonds. I put obsidian blocks into a chest, and two engines are spreading the blocks to 6 crucibles. This is the last machine I want to show you. Its my not that strong used full automatic storage room. I can acess its inventory from certain stations where I can push/pull items into it. Maybe one day I will enchance it to refill automaticly with smelted ores. So, thats it. Now I would like to see your "heavy machines" (Map Download: http://www.illusion-games.de/download/private/minecraft/TechnicPack6MC1.1.rar) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
