    Hey guys. What Leyden Jar does?
  • #1385
    k, something very weird is happening related to the genepool and routers, and I am guessing it's on extra bees end.
    I set up 3 genepools next to eachother, with a diamond chest next to them filled with bees.
    below them I set up 2 factorization routers, one to pull from the chest, and eject to the second router, and the second router set to insert the bees into the genepools. everything is fine with the first stack of bees, but when all 1st slots in the genepools are full, the routers keep pulling from the chest and inserting bees into the genepools, but they don't end up anywhere in the genepool, they just simple disappear...

    what is even more weird, I tried testing it with 1 router and 1 genepool and manually putting in 2 bees from different species. the first bee ofcourse goes into the first slot when I put it in the router, but when I put the second bee in the router, the species somehow got changed to the bee in the first slot and I have 2 of that species of bees...

    I eventually solved the problem by placing hoppers ontop of the genepools, and have the second router insert the bees into the hoppers instead of the genepools, and the problem of the bees disappearing is fixed.

    but there's still the problem that their species get changed to the species that's inside the genepool. I have searched this topic with the word "bees" and it seems this problem has been there for quite a while now, and it's only getting worse...

    We'd like to use this mod in a private modpack we are putting together for our server. The server is not public. There's about 12 of us.


    All mods are allowed to use in private modpacks that you doesn't get you money (Adfly links, etc..) Only if you would use the mod to make money like in adfly that would be illegal.

    More testing, I feed a solar turbine with the output of 7 solar boilers with the maximum amount of mirrors each.

    Still, it doesn't seem to generate enough charge to start filling a leyden jar.

    *pic snip*


    The problem here is that you're trying to stack mirrors on top of each other. In your image, only the top row of mirrors is recieving light. Also, you can only fill leyden jars from the top, just like real life leyden jars :P .

    For those interested, here's what I've done in a test world to get the maximum number of mirrors on one turbine:





    There is a total of 239 mirrors here. 56 on the bottom layer, then 40, 36, 32, 28, 24, 16, and 7 going up. Requires 8 solar boilers.

    The top layer could have 8 mirrors on it instead of 7 in theory, but since you have to run cable down someplace you've got to take at least 1 mirror out (unless you want to build your entire ore processing system as one big vertical column! a challenge I may take one day :P )

    But yeah, basically you just lay out the foundation for the ol' max-mirror setup on the bottom and just keep stacking and filling in all the empty space. Pretty simple to make minus resource acquisition, hehe. Looks like this from above:




    Naturally, you could build this "solar cone" or what have you in any configuration including my fat-side-down cone shape here as long as it covers all spaces from the max-mirrors ring to the center. Building it up was just easier this way; plus you can live inside it!

    (inside)



    (dat rpm)



    (some leyden jars + running cable out horizontally)



    (concave design; a bit more realistic)



    I'm very excited to play with these updates in survival! A wonderful change from the old system, I feel. I'm not yet playing on 1.5 due to my waiting out for Redpower, but new FZ has me itching to maybe move on without it.

    Last, many thanks to neptunepink for making Factorization (my favorite mod!)

    This post is to meet the requirement laid out by NeptunePink with regard to usage of the Factorization mod in a private modpack.

    The modpack will be distributed by the Feed The Beast private pack system. The server is a private server with zero advertisement, meant only for friends and family, with only about 5 or 6 players.

    Thanks!

    Playing with connecting FZ boilers to railcraft industrial steam engines

    Factorization-powered solar MJ production? Yes please.

    More testing seems to show that a maxed-mirrors setup around a set of boilers can power 5 (five!) industrial steam engines, producing 40 MJ/t! A very nice alternative to railcraft boilers I feel, as there is no requirement of setting up infrastructure for fuel production, and you can set it up to power FZ machines as well. Here's my setup:

    EDIT: The sandstone blocks block 2 mirrors at the bottom - I recommend substituting daylight sensors for them so that all mirrors are powered.



    Engines are in an x pattern, power comes from levers/whatever on blocks in between



    Pipes come up from boilers and feed engines from the sides




    Love it!

    Does this use the Forge Ore Dictionary?

    6 of those boilers aren't working.NVM, it was answered before, I thought I was on last page.

    That is awesome.

    An additional note on the steam engine setup:

    I realized having the levers on sandstone meant two of the mirrors at the bottom weren't working. Replace the sandstone + levers with daylight sensors and all should be square ;)

    Hey guys. Can you tell me, what Leyden Jar does?
  • #1395
    Felt inclined to tell you that I'm making a private modpack using your mod for less than 10 people on my private server. Please PM me if you need more information or do not want me to use the mod.
  • #1396
    Just to let you know, I will be using this mod in my private modpack, HoodPack. It will be hosted on the FTB launcher and only accessible to members of my server. Thanks for a great mod and I will be looking forward to more great content in the future!
  • #1397
    Hey just an update from my last post, we are now running a totally independent pack from ftb & thus just wanted to make you aware of the changes to our pack :)
  • #1398
    Hello, I am writing to let you know I will be including factorization in a private server pack called "ROFL Pack". The pack is entirely private and will be distributed by the FTB Launcher to a small group of users.

    Thank You

    I would recommend using the search feature (upper right corner of the page).
    From what I understand (haven't used it yet) it is just a better battery that is filled from the top.

    I'm using your mod in a private Modpack.

    Oh and I wanted to thank you for creating such a great mod. :)
