What happens if the Advanced Pump is left running continuously and the output pipe is full? I noticed it will continue to consume power, but does it stop pumping until there is enough room in the pipe to take more liquid, or does the excess get wasted?
It's just like you said, it stops pumping until there is enough room in the pipe to take in more liquid.
Currently, my set-up uses a chest with several advanced wooden transport pipes, each keyed to a single item. Is there anyway to have one pipe pull from the chest and then somehow distribute several different items to different chests/automatic crafting tables?
I won several times the martial arts club event in North Point but it seems that nothing special happens. The indicator continues to be present on the map and I can repeat it continuously. Is it so by design or am I missing something?
When I try to build a screw pump with bMs, I see the red text: Needs screw trap component I've already built seven pumps, and still have blocks, pipe sections, mechanisms and enormous corkscrews to go. Nothing is forbidden, and no burrows are activated. What could I be missing? Edit: It does work now, and AFAIK nothing changed. So the question is: What could I have been missing?
I'm planning to pump lava through teleport pipes. I'll be using redstone engines to do the pumping. I am concerned as to what will happen if there is still lava left to collect, but my tank on the other end of the teleport pipe is full? Does the pump stop safely?
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.
Which pipe would i use to pump my seed oil into carpenter? I have seed oil in my carpenter and I have a waterproof cobblestone pipe connecting from the squeezer to my Carpenter.
I'm using the MC Forestry mod, which has machines that have powered output. I've tried taking items out of the machines by using the regular wood pipe to stone pipe, which doesn't work. What exactly does powered output mean, and how can I get items out of these machines using pipes?
A Redstone Energy Cell (from Thermal Expansion) continuously emits energy according to the rate set in its GUI as long as it contains MJ. If the Buildcraft machines connected to the energy network aren't doing anything, eventually the first conductive pipe connected to the Cell will explode. By comparison, an IndustrialCraft MFE stops emitting EU until a machine connected to it needs EU, and this makes it very easy to use without problems. I'd like to set up my BC power network to be as well-behaved as my IC power network. I was able to get an Autarchic Gate to toggle the cell on/off using
In M.U.D. TV, there is a phone in your office which rings incessantly. There does not appear to be any way to answer it. Is there a way to make it stop ringing, or does it just ring continuously, to make you not want to be in your office?
