Hello everyone, we have a number of new tutorials.
The first ones show you how to make use of the fabulous, under-appreciated mod Logistics Pipes. The tutorials build upon each other and will show you how to create an automatic item processing and sorting system:
- Base Management 01: Automatic Item Sorting
- Base Management 02: Automatic Item Processing
- Base Management 03: Automatic Item Crafting & Remote Ordering
Now those setups are rather bulky and take up a lot of space. Logistics Pipes features special modular pipes called "Logistics Chassis" which can be equipped with certain modules in order to combine the functionalities of several Logistics Pipes within one single chassis. If you employ a selection of different modules and chassis, you can create a very compact setup that has exactly the same functionality as the first two tutorials above:
I have hence called it the "zeroth" tutorial. If you want to have remote crafting capabilities, you will still need to build the setup from the third tutorial, though.
Create diamonds out of cow milk
The second tutorial is probably the most sinister diamond generator as of now: In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a machine that traps a cow and constantly milks it in order to create diamonds. Like most diamond generators, the system uses Energy Condensers from Equivalent Exchange and a number of wires and logic elements from the Redpower mod. In addition to that, it features a Railcraft-based half-automatic cow delivery system ©.
Employ the dark art of abusive mass husbandry to create loads of diamonds!
