Step one on my way to a storage/sorting system complete.. The 5 ores that can be "doubled" are able to do so as soon as the quarry mines them. Next step is the smelting building...

Little update on what I've been doing(will post pics tomorrow)

Currently built about 8-10 redstone energy cells.. These things make the quarry go like mad.. Also made charging stations for them..

Currently setting up a auto tree farm that powers itself.. gonna end up building maybe 6 of them and start storing the fuel they make.

I'm jealous of you. Whenever I try build fancy machinery and what not I get so lost and confused...

I've started building a castle next to my NPC village that I settled on but the thing is, its near an ocean and I have no idea what to build after you enter the gates.. I was thinking of a brick village and then stairs leading to the castle but I'm losing interest in completing it after it took me days to make this wall...


Had to be on creative mode because then I wouldn't even bother starting it..

3 Tree farms

Posted Image
The piping underground.. needs organization but so far so good.. Need to build some auto grain farms to use grain to make what is needed in the tree farms. Will be doing that soon.

Storage/sorting system.

My redstone energy cell charging stations. The cells are on the ground at the back.. Those ones are fully charged.

lol.. The farms are fairly easy.. They pretty much 'build' themselves.. place dirt etc. where it needs to go.. You just put more in the machine with seeds..

Here are my 2 wheat farms.. Next part is the automation to work with the tree farm.. I can tell you right now.. I do not need any more oak wood.. ever.. lol

They should make killing enemies with the chainsaw a bloody and gruesome affair.

Being in the tree murdering profession myself I find the lack of gore most displeasing.

I've heard that SirSengir is planning on changing the way Forestry farms work, so don't get too attached to it.

I switched it to the new tree farm system.. burnt down the trees that grew because they were planted.. And its a mining laser.. has about 7-8 different modes.. used it to start the fires.

Here is my new tree farm above ground system.

They should have an enchantment that lessens charge usage, like the unbreakable enchantment for tools with a charge.

There is an enchantment called 'repair' that repairs regular tools. I've been using my mining laser and my Gravitron Chest Plate(lets me fly like in creative) recharges it

Oh, ok. Thanks!

Hey, how do iron pipes work? Nothing flows through them for me...

Also how do you work refineries?

Hey are much of a techie? I tried to redownload the DireWolf mod pack, I hit launch then it says: "A new mod pack version is available! Do you wish to update?" so I hit yes then it dilly dallies for a little then I get a message that says: "Error occurred during downloading the game" (it's words not mine...) and in the console it says this:

iron pipes are 1 way pipes.. you need a wrench to change their direction.. I use them with my tree farms to link each farm into 1 main pipe.. keeps items from going back towards the farms and head towards storage. Just use cobble pipes with gold pipes every now and then to speed up items in them..

As for refineries.. I am not at that point yet really so I have no idea lol.

I had that happen when an update came out last week.. I just kept hitting no for the day and it worked fine the next day.

Oh, ok, one way pipes... makes sense.

I was messing around with building oil derricks and pumping oil in creative mode. I figured out that you need to put oil in and you need to attach an engine to turn the oil into fuel but that's as far as I got. Buy the way, is there an engine that basically don't need fuel, won't overheat and works fast? Just for easy testing in creative mode.

Ah, ok, the servers must be down then I guess.

Use stirling engines and just put lava cells in them

As for pipes.. they all do different things..
Gold=speed
cobble=normal
sandstone=doesnt connect to machines
diamond=sorts
wooden=connects with engines to suck items out of chests/machines
