  • Is it possible to automate the winding up of a Clockwork Engine? Jeffrey Lin

    The clockwork engines in the 1.5.2 version of Forestry provide essentially unlimited power at the cost of winding them with right-clicking. Is there any way to automate these, maybe with turtles or some other contraption? I can see how this would be very overpowered if mass produced.

  • no by design, for exactly the reason you cited, (the developer explicitly removed the ability from turtle to be able to right click them I heard)

    however an auto-fueled low-tier steam engine row can be powered by a small tree farm easily

This makes attacking enemy units incredibly difficult because my units just move onto the tiles as they move away!

Although I am kinda happy with the game overall, there are a couple of handy features from GH4 that appear to be missing, or maybe I just haven't found how to activate them yet (I've been browsing the options a couple of times, but it didn't help). The features I'm missing most are : being able to restart a song immediately after it ended by pressing the yellow button getting the song selection cursor to stay in position after a song ends, instead of winding

Only one problem: I don't know how much damage I'm doing. Every spell can be charged. Based on the charge level it does more damage. Every spell can be upgraded. Based on the upgrade level it does more damage. But how much? I need maths

  • I've seen a few videoes where people create near (or completely) automated tree farms in Minecraft, so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm playing 1.7.3 beta SMP though, no mods (at least none that alter game behavior.) One of the things I saw one guy had made was something that automated planting a tree, and then automated applying a bonemeal, before finally he automated flooding the area with water to destroy the tree and gather the trunk items. One thing at a time. My question is thus this: Is it possible to automate the "plant a sapling" part? I tried the following: I set out
