     There was quite a bit of stuff involved there, so not sure the exact culprit:
    - 7x7x7 colossal chest with a lot of stuff in it. I'm considering removing it in favor of more drawers and a better voiding system for all junk. Of course, AE2 is the ultimate goal for handling this, but with a subnetwork to limit cluttering main storage with mob drops.
    - A system of 9 wooden hoppers to collect mob drops and funnel them into a crate. I'm wondering if the items get stuck in these hoppers and cause lags, or get stuck in the 3x3 tunnel where mobs are killed using spikes. I plan on removing this in favor a range collector that I now have access to.
    - BuildCraft pipes starting from the crate, one stop (insertion pipe) into loot bag storage, second stop in a drawer controller, last stop the colossal chest interface. My plan is to finish up PneumaticCraft, unlock Mekanism and use better pipes. I tried FactoryTech transport rollers, not good, because the ring of magnetization sucks everything from rollers when I'm close.
    - Botania ring of magnetization is active and not collecting a bunch of junk when going nearby the system. So I suspect stuff get stuck in hoppers or pipes.

     Finally found something! My colossal chest collecting mob drops had a lot of junk. Emptying the chest removed the delay when opening that chest but all other chests in my base! I'm not sure this will last, but at least if that colossal chest is the culprit, I accumulated enough mob drops in my drawers for a good time, maybe I can get to AE2 with what that system collected over time. Not sure yet, still struggling with PneumaticCraft but progressing.

     I was just able to start the pack and load my world, but disabling CTM had no effect. It still takes 2-3 seconds to open up a chest, crafting table, etc. The only workaround is to be in a compact machine or the Nether. I am definitely very unlucky with this pack. Anything I try just fails or eats me an increasing amount of time. If this pack requires a Core i9 8-core CPU to run, that should be documented. I spend weeks and weeks trying to start on this, to end up stuck and having to start over from scratch on some other packs.

     Actually this is even worse. Each time I tried to disable ConnectedTexturesMod in the Twitch profile of the pack, it randomly disabled another mod! I just figured out EnderIO, Chisel, Twilight Forest, Tinker Construct and some others have been unexpectedly disabled. I tried to turn them back on, but I'm concerned there is an issue with mouse pointer capture in the Twitch client causing each click to randomly tick or untick something else.
    But I found a config option that seems to completely disabled CTM; I will experiment with that, if I can still load my world.

     Hi,
    Thanks. I just tried disabling CTM (ConnectedTexturesMod I guessed) and it just reenabled itself automatically. I unlocked the modpack's profile, got a toggle besides each mod and unticked ConnectedTexturesMod, which ticked back again after a few second or if I mouse wheel into the list. This is how I disabled Endermen Evolution in 3.2 and that worked, I'm not getting why it fails for that ConnectedTextures mod.
    Disabling Chisel will just ruin my world. I have several platforms made of chiseled blocks as well as the box in which my water wheel chills. Without a wand of equal trade or exchangers mod, I won't be able to exchange all the chiseled blocks with something else in an efficient way.

     Hi, I need Ender Pearls so this is why my spawner is 3 block high. If there is a reliable way to generate pearls without Endermen, I could well lower the ceiling of my mob spawner and the problem would be solved.
    The problem is that Endermen, for some reason, teleport out of the spawner, maybe because the spikes (4 diamond spikes, 5 iron spikes, in a 3x3 pattern) don't deal enough damage to kill them fast enough. The inhibitor obelisk could prevent such teleport, without requiring a Wither skull to craft, but I didn't reach EnderIO yet.

    Hi,

    Since I upgraded to 3.4.2, I am getting many delays in the game, when opening chests, crafting stations, picking items from drawers and even flipping levers. It takes 2-3 seconds each time. There is no delay when clicking on a vanilla crafting table. For chests, I observed that delay for vanilla and iron chests. I am using the Java arguments tuning the garbage collector and assigned 8Gb to the pack. Even with that amount of memory, the game uses from 60% to 75% of the memory, but that's at least far better than the 95% I was getting with 3.4.1 without the JVM arguments.

    I have no Chisel and Bits constructions of any kind in my base, but I am using Chisel quite a bit. I didn't test if it happens in other dimensions such as the Nether or compact machines, but I will try it as soon as possible. I am working on the "Under pressure" chapter, so no crazy automation yet except a mob farm running all the time.

     Well possible that my mob farm is too large. I also have issues with Endermen teleporting out of the farm, even though the mobs fall into a 3x3 tunnel with 9 spikes at the bottom (4 diamonds, rest iron). I started with 4 diamond spikes+vector plates and replaced the plates with spikes in the hope it would kill Endermen faster before they teleport out, but no, they always get out, not all of them, but some.
    Botania's Vinculotus helps a bit but requires mana. I put that flower in my Botania area (where I have mana pools) and a Bellethorn nearby. When Endermen try to teleport out of the mob farm, they get there and are killed by the flower. But sometimes they aren't killed and chill indefinitely in my Botania area until I slay them with a sword. Don't know why the Bellethorn stops working on them.
    These are not Evolved Endermen. When I was on 3.3, I removed Endermen Evolution, and that mod got removed in 3.4 so still regular Endermen in 3.4.2.
    Yesterday I got fed up and cheated an End Tether, which I cannot obtain since I don't have Wither skulls. But I would be glad to replace this with a working legitimate solution. Maybe the only one will be an inhibition obelisk when I get EnderIO. Or a more convoluted build involving golden spikes (to drop XP), rosa arcana to turn XP into mana, Vinculotus flower (floating) on the 3x3 tunnel wall and hope that no mobs can break the flowers.

     The advanced coke oven comes from the time I spend in 3.4.1. It disappeared after the downgrade to 3.3 (because of unbearable lag) but reappeared when I tried 3.4.2. It reappeared at wrong position and was unusable. At first, it didn't break as well, but it finally broke with a pick axe.

    Hi,

    I just cannot make a functional mob spawner in this pack unless I spend ALL my time sorting mob drops. This is driving me insane. I tried with 9 hoopers to collect mob drops, but it suddenly stopped working. A range collector works, but there is no pipes available to collect items from the collector fast enough.

    Hi,

    My attempt to upgrade 3.4.2 almost succeeded, but an Immersive Tech Improved Coke oven appeared on top of my regular coke oven and there is no way to interact with it or remove it. I'm searching on Google and cannot find anything, absolutely just garbage not related to my issue. This is by far the hardest and most frustrating pack for me because things are always, always, always going wonky since I started to play with Immersive Engineering. Maybe I shouldn't have upgraded the pack altogether. This is when I went from 3.3 to 3.4 that tings started to misbehave and now my map is just screwed up and I need to restart from scratch. I took me four months to reach the point I am in the progression and I really, really, really don't want to repeat all of this. Beginning of Sky Resources is almost if not even more painful than mining and the pack just prevents ANY form of automation until all sorts of quests are completed. I don't want to redo all of this because of stupid bugs nobody can solve.

     Are you running 3.4.2 or an older version? I tried 3.4.1.3, had to downgrade to 3.3.4 because of lag. The Java arguments definitely helped stabilizing memory usage. But I would like to try 3.4.2 (latest one) + the Java arguments, to get Thaumcraft. Last time I downgraded, I had to completely reset my Spice of Life progression and remove the MegaLoots mod because one of the tools I got while I was on 3.4 caused game crash on 3.3 (just opening the chest with the tool in it). So I would like to avoid dmaging my map even more with another downgrade.

     Hi, looking at the stages configuration file, there is no insulated HV wires here. The Immersive Engineering book tells explicitly that insulated cables are available just for LV and MV. I found no facade block that would provide insulation. The only way to pass a cable through a wall withoua hole is to put a connector each side of the block (called a feedthrough connection). Anyway, my Empowerer wiring mostly works and as soon as I unlock the Advanced Mechanism stage, I'll have access to better cables.

     Thanks. Not sure the Elevators work would cope well with OpenBlocks which is already installed in the pack but locked under the oa stage. If that becomes a real no-go, I could just edit the stages file to remove the elevator from the oa stage.
    I was surprised I couldn't craft HV insulated cables, which I can get LV and MV ones. Maybe the insulated HV cables are available only on recent versions of Immersive Engineering, or they are locked behind another stage. I will definitely have a look at the stages configuration file to at least know if there are insulated HV cables locked away.

    Thanks. I'll experiment with that. I keep seeing clues about bypassing Twitch to launch Minecraft, but each time I search about HOW to do it, I find nothing. Some posts mention MultiMC which seems over-complicated, and I even read that I would need a development build to be able to pass JVM arguments. I however found an option in Twtich app to pass additional JVM arguments and used that to force Twitch to use latest JRE instead of its own, so I will try to add the suggested arguments here.

     Thanks for the comment.
    1. I am using Botania's Sojourner's sash. I'll try to remove it to see if that helps, maybe it is making climb down ladders harder. The problem happens when climbing DOWN, not up, so fast ladder mod won't help. I was having similar difficulties in Sky Factory 3, maybe because there is just a 1x1 hole with the ladder. But If I put a larger hole, I regularly fall instead of climbing down. The definitve solution was elevator blocks but they unexpectedly have been disabled in Modern Skyblock 3.
    2. Indeed, I was having this problem in Sky Factory 3, but it seems worse in Modern Skyblock 3, almost each time I access a drawer. "Fix" was to switch to an inventory management mod, Refined Storage at that time. But Modern Skyblock 3 gated AE2 really far without providing any low-tech alternative such as Extra Utilities Indexer or something like Simple Networks. I'm sometimes considering removing the drawers and put chests or crates instead, but the controller is very handy to put the items back into drawers.
    3. The "random" death was caused by an HV cable I used to hook up my Empowerer's display stands. I have access to no cables except these one. I put the wires below the floor so I should not touch them, but it seems there is a bounding box problem that caused the player to touch the wire through the floor. There are solutions: lasers, all sorts of cables from Thermal, Mekanism, Ender IO, but everything is disabled.
    4. The GUI scale Large almost worked for me, except for in-game manuals. Last time I got the issue, alt-tabbing out of the game then back in fixed it, but I'm not sure yet it works all the times.
    5. Trying to give more RAM (now 10Gb) seems to help, but I cannot go higher since I just have 16Gb of RAM in that machine. I am u sing a NVIDIA GPU and more and more wondering if the game makes use of it, maybe the 2D/3D acceleration works with just some games and not others. I didn't find anywhere documentation about system requirements telling that the game requires specific CPU, GPU, etc.
