  • Multiple Lava Pumps In The Nether ReallyGoodPie

    I have setup a 4 lava pumps to pump out lava in the nether to a tank in the overworld. Unfortunatley only one pump is working despite having the exact same setups. Is there a limit to how many pumps you can have in one chunk? I have provided a screenshot of my setup.enter image description here

    As you can probably (or not) see, they have exactly the same setups. Each with the exact same I/O's. Anyone have any idea how to get them all to work? They all seem to be pumping but in the three that aren't working, no lava is being inputted into the magmatic engine.

  • To answer your question you are allowed to have as many pumps as you want near each other. Why your setup isn't working probably has to do with energy distribution.

    You can test for yourself with multiple pumps in a chunk by making a super flat world and testing there in creative mode.

  • I have set up three combustion engines to a quarry, all three of them are cooled by one pipe coming from two pumps. P - Pump Q - Quarry E - Engine P+ +--E +-+-EQ P+ +--E Sometimes the engines overheat. Should I set up one pump for each engine? This sounds like a bit overhead to me. Additional question: Where can I find detailed information on how to power machines optimally (eg how many engines do I need to optimally power machine xyz), cooling engines etc.

  • I have a FTB Unleashed server, which I'm in the process of setting up before going public. Part of that setup is checking the Nether etc. So I built a Nether portal and strangely all it does is pass me around Nether Portals in the Overworld. What have I done wrong? The DIM1 folder is missing - so I suspect some generation is supposed to happen?

  • and react to changes in volume.” — what is classed as “low in mass”? My plan was to block off a section of this river and drain it. I've worked out how the pipes work and the pump needs.... And finally, with a bigger (but shallower) pool than before, still no go. I can plonk a “grate” down in a trench I've dug for example 2 and the water floods back in (annoyingly, regardless if there is a Redstone input to it or not) as finite water. Take out the grate and let water come in, that's all infinite water. What is the largest body of water that is “finite” — or do you just need more

  • quartz and some other stuff. It all worked fine and I got in to the nether and back several times without problem. Then today I went in to try and find a fortress. I went quite deep into the nether before I found one, and I proceded to grab all the loot I could carry and then run on home. Except, as you might have guessed by now, this time the portal didn't take me home. It took me to some other...There are a lot of questions about Nether portals moving around here, but nothing that I can find that directly answers this conundrum (or I just don't know what to search for). I have a nether

  • touch will work on ice, but breaking ice in the Nether will not give you water. So I am looking for a good setup so I can make some potions in the Nether, mostly instant health, splash damage... a chest in the Nether with water buckets, and one chest with stacks of all the ingredients I need. Than in the brewing station I have a cauldron. Now if I understand correctly with a filled cauldron you can fill 3 bottles. So now I can bring buckets of water instead of bottles, so 1 inventory space will give me 3 potions. One thing also is that when you go back you can fill all the buckets

  • I have five Screwpumps built vertically following the wiki guide. I do not have any other machinery attached, but it was my understanding that one dwarf would be able to power the whole stack. I ended up having to put five dwarves to work to get the water to the top. Do I have to link the stacks somehow (mechanisms? Axles?) The guide seemed to suggest that the pumps just being vertically aligned w/ alternating pump directions would be sufficient. The stack does "work", but how can I make it work w/ just 1 dwarf powering the thing instead of a dwarf at every pump? I have them linked

  • In Minecraft seeds display a world that is almost the exact same over and over again. However when looking at the Nether it seemed to be 2 different Nethers (one spawned me into a large sum of Nether Quartz and the other a Nether Fortress). How can I make the Nethers stay the same on the same worlds?

  • tank as it would if I was emptying just one tank, so the pipes will be full pretty quick. Will the pumps stop drawing oil from the tanks when this happens, so that I can just set it all up and forget about it, assuming I create enough tanks to hold all the fuel that is. Or do I have to "micromanage" it by emptying out one oil tank at a time, to avoid filling the pipes and then losing liquid? ... have to empty each tank at a time, to avoid loosing liquid? All the tanks are placed next to each other, and let's say I attach a wooden pipe to each, with a running redstone engine above
