I keep having troubles with machines that output multiple fluids e.g the electrolyzer (nuclearcraft) or the distillation tower (IE). I usually give them one barrel for each fluid but as soon as one barrel gets empty it starts filling it with something else even if there is already a barrel for that fluid attached to the pipe. I have been using fluidducts with servos.
Is there a possibility to lock the barrels for one fluid or whitelist one?
In reply to LukeSkywaIker: I dont think there is one yet unfortunatly, at least i couldnt find one. Maybe try matching the inputspeed with servos( reducing the stack size to 1) to the working speed of the machine?
I am a bit confused. The Quest book says that because of the netherbricks casings low efficiency, it's best to avoid fuel based combustion heaters. Okay well the only available alternative (to me currently) is the bronze one that takes RF. So I hook that up to a generator and find out the HU production is about 100x lower than what it would have been just using the fuel based combustion generators... I would have to use approximately 500 charcoal and wait half a day for it to burn to do a single glowstone reaction. What's going here? Am I missing something?
Is it normal that it takes hours for the resource ore miner (1) to produce some erodium? I probably have it running for around 10 real life hours and so far i only got around 50 erodium. right now im using a clear lens because i dont have enough for a crystal lens. its going to take another 10 h before i can get to tier 2 and finally into white matter. right now im just leaving the game running because i literally have nothing left to do besides knocking out some random quests that wont get me anywhere.
am i missing something? do i just need MORE miners?
You will only need the nether casing for a few things before getting a better one. just put some coal in there and swap it out for your normal casing after youre done. i remember it only taking max 10 coal to fill up the heat once, probably less. woudlnt worry about the efficieny too much
I see. So I should replace the bronze combustion heater with an iron one. The bronze combustion heater is useless then? Sucks that I had to do the 4ingot->1plate recipe on it. Maybe the questbook should be updated to not indicate to new players that they should use it?
In advance: i didnt know a lot of the lesser known mods and therefore fiddled my way through the pack on my own so i might not be aware of every trick. Yeah i remember wasting stacks of ingots on plates i never really used :D At least thats what worked best for me since i had a lot of coal. I went from iron to electrum/steel followed directly by enderium. Used the netherrack casing only when needed. The others i never really used because they were either too expensive when i needed them (and i didnt have a good energy production to use them) or not good enough anymore when i had the resources
Not sure about the questbook tip, maybe its meant to be used with fuel-independent generators .. dunno
So uhm. Is the twilight forest supposed to be similar to a normal non-skyblock world? I can go there now and it makes crafting a lot of things irrellevant as I can basically get them in the forest. Like chaos ore.
I have to say that I think that this is probably the best quest based pack on 1.12.2. It's so refreshing to play a skyblocks mod pack that actually uses new mods. ExNihlo has gotten so overused at this point. I think I actually like SkyResources more. The multiblock setup is very well designed, and allows for a lot of creativity and the quest book is detailed. It's not a perfect pack mind you, a tad to linear at times, and there could be more inter-mod item compatibility. However, it stacks well above the other packs! I'm liking Expert mode a whole lot.
no loop, just a gate :) the quest book / quest requirements will tell you Tech Reborn Alloy Smelter (Bronze) + Embers Hammer to make casings => Forestry to make impregnated stuff => Immersive Engineering blast furnace to make steel => Cauldron/ Rock cleaning => Main gems (lapis) => Floral fertilizier from lapis+red+yellow dye => Botania flowers
long way to go but i recommend to enjoy the mods it takes you through :) (youll need them later anyway)
