Infinite EMC tutorialEdit
For those who cannot afford Energy Collectors, or consider them as cheating, this method of EMC is for you! Granted, it’s rather slow, but it’s also very cheap.
Checklist of IngredientsEdit
You will need: 1. One Energy Condenser 2. One Automatic Crafting Table 3. Two Redstone Engines 4. Two Wooden Pipes 5. Four Stone Pipes (or Cobblestone Pipes) 6. Two Redstone Torches (or Levers, or any source of redstone power) 7. Seven Cobblestone blocks
1. Place your Energy condenser.
2. Dig a two-deep hole to the right of the Energy Condenser.
3. Place a Redstone Torch at the bottom.
4. Place a Redstone Engine on the torch.
5. Place a Wooden Pipe on the engine.
6. Place the Automatic Crafting Table to the right of the wooden pipe.
7. Dig a two-deep hole behind the Automatic Crafting Table.
8. Put a Redstone Torch at the bottom, a Redstone Engine on the torch and a Wooden Pipe on the engine, same as before. (Area cleared for better viewing; you don’t really need this hole)
9. Use the Stone Pipe to connect the Wooden Pipe to the Energy Condenser.
10. Place one Cobblestone in the Energy Condenser’s target slot and six in the Automatic Crafting Table to make Cobblestone Slabs.
Voila! Infinite EMC!
How it works:Edit
The EMC value of Cobblestone is 1. Cobblestone Slab also has a value of 1 EMC. It takes three Cobblestone to make six Cobblestone Slabs, so the EMC value doubles.
The Energy condenser is making 1 Cobblestone for every 1 Slab, and the Automatic Crafting Table is making 2 Slabs for every Cobblestone. Deja et deja.
Try replacing some of the Stone Pipe with Gold Pipe. You will need to power them with redstone. Use Fast Electric Engines (if in Technic) but avoid Combustion Engines. The source of their power in this picture is a High Voltage Solar Array.
You can attempt a build using Filters and Pneumatic Tubes. I have been unable to get this to work, however. In the picture, the cycle is Energy Condenser>Filter>Pneumatic Pipe>ACT>Filter>Pneumatic Pipe>Energy Condenser. I used timers to trigger the Filters. The problem was that the Filters weren’t pulling Cobblestone Slabs, probably because the Slabs aren’t really there but can be crafted from the ACT.
In order for this method to work, you will need to put the filter on top of the crafting table. Also an Automatic Crafting Table MkII is required for the Filters to recognise the craft.
Energy Condenser (42,011) + Automatic Crafting Table (48) + Redstone Engines (405)x2 + Wooden Pipe (17)x4 + Stone Pipe (8)x4 +Redstone Torch (68)x2 + Cobblestone (1)x7 = 43,044 EMC
Lower cost and smaller footprint version:EditThis design is meant for the Cobblestone Slab Cycle. If using "Stick/Ladder" an extra redstone engine (or 2) is suggested on the wood pipe coming out of the condenser. (out of sync with the other one) That will double the generation speed and keep the AutoCrafts' engine from overheating from not having ladders to pull.
Manually grabbing a stack from the Condenser and putting it in the table will also help discharge the build up.
