i find it more convenient to just get on the soil and run across the rows planting. with the planting from the sides it is much slower. Also, the first row of soil from each platform, it useless, any crops where will not drop  anything because water is falling on top of them instead of on their side. thats why there is the cobble in forssa.

This. Besides, the farm is expandable in either direction if we need to expand it.

Hey guys, now that I have the lab finished as a structure, I'm ready to put stuff in it, but I need a power source. I asked kipz yesterday about connecting to his reactor as a power source and he said okay, although Bla recommended that I talk to Atomic and Kipz about connecting to a power source or before constructing a nuke plant.

Mixture of modern and beginning industrial era maybe? I don't have the lab set up yet.

Well I mean as in what, from the mod, has been built, I'm really behind, I haven't built any industrial yet.

All but the more advanced stuff has been made, if that's what you're asking.

I've set up a primitive (by blacraftian standards anyway) mine. Technically its my personal mine, but I guess it could be used by everybody and we are going to have to do mining the old fashioned way until we get enough resources for a mining array.

Hey guys, while looking up something I saw in creative mode, I found this: http://wiki.industrial-craft.net/index.php?title=Crops and http://wiki.industrial-craft.net/index.php?title=Crop-Matron

This is advanced stuff, so we could try it out when we have the resources.

Bla you can do a connecty magic now. I have an MFE. Also I blew up all my macerators and furnaces. I made a new macerator and two furnaces and an LV transformer. It's all fixed now.

Simple sentences much.

And I need a new connection line. Tried to use a batbox as a transformer, blowing up the transformer and the tin line.

yeah, i've been mining many raw materials to produce more advanced stuff. i'm up to mass fabricator and working towards a high powered nuclear reactor to start massively mining automatically within the next few days/weeks.

The strip mine I've set up will help with resource gathering, just needs a mining laser to be made available to make mining in there faster.

i'm making quantum armor. i'll wear it, but anyone can use it for a good reason. It took me a good 6 hours to make just boots. (i'll need ~100k cobble, 60 million eu, 10 diamonds, and some other redstone/lapis). I figure by the time i'm finished with this armor, which is like 9 block jump heigh, unlimited underwater time, fireproof, poison proof, like 20m/s sprint, and near invincibility, it'll be like creative mode without spawning inventory. I shall waltz into the end and hold the enderdragon captive. ohyes. After this i'll promise to just mass fabricate ores :P

I would certainly like to use the waterbreathing helmet, that way, I can make water tower 'batteries' that go deep into the ground and use watermills that way. Will have to test in SP creative first though.

water towers are best at 5 blocks because tin wire.

the column should be 5 blocks high

the layout should be watermills in a 3x3 square excluding corners and center. center should be tin wire

stacked? like on top of each other? I need pics to understand this

i would put them side by side, in a river. no need to go deeper and add complications. also this makes energy loss lower.

We don't exactly have a river handy, so I could make a watermill farm with 5 deep (or 6 deep, to account for ice) wells that would house watermills. Just have to hook them up to a voltage amplifier to the main part of the grid.

Of course though, if we were by an ocean, we could very well make a massive watermill farm or maybe it would be better called a tidal farm.

Edit: Or better yet, an array of them in a large tank. Perhaps something like this prototype, except imagine it in an array of many in a much, much larger pool. Maybe I'll put them under the hill behind my lab to avoid the issue of ice forming.

except flying is only 10m/s.

Your point being?

Anyways, I found the device that can be used to measure electric current: http://wiki.industrial-craft.net/index.php?title=EC-Meter However, the only problem is that it is bugged right now, also it requires glowstone dust. Just tried it in creative mode and I have no idea if it's supposed to give negative measurements. Doesn't seem to be working the way it should be.

i'm going to make 12 windmills with 12 rubber, 6 copper, 24 redstone, 48 tin, 96 cobblestone, and 144 iron, if everyone if fine with that. kiptech is short on power.

Actually, kip, u already have a reactor and I dont have anything, so i dont think its ok.

yes but when i use mass fab, i drain more energy than i make so i need to make more energy. you not having anything doesn't have anything to do with windmills?
