@  w12w : (19 April 2014 - 01:24 PM) civ beyond earth reminds me of civ alpha centauri
@  seanos1998 : (19 April 2014 - 11:15 AM) well, from what i've seen it looks a lot more alieny
@  MatthewSaotome : (19 April 2014 - 07:34 AM) when it comes to the new civilization game beyond earth, i saw some screen shots of the actual game, it reminds me of Civ 5 but im sure its better.
@  seanos1998 : (17 April 2014 - 10:16 AM) also, it works with a pulverizer too if i'm not mistaken
@  seanos1998 : (17 April 2014 - 10:15 AM) i know ravenor, but i just said that because it was the more obvious answer
@  Ravenor911 : (17 April 2014 - 01:27 AM) lies, lead ore, put it in a force grinder and you can geta chance for some silver (I know prob too late now)
@  JackMahogoff : (16 April 2014 - 08:34 PM) server go boom
@  seanos1998 : (16 April 2014 - 11:48 AM) silver is only found in the nether or the deep dark
@  wizkid515 : (16 April 2014 - 09:11 AM) Hey all, I've been playing Gigatech on a SSP map but I can't seem to find silver for the life of me. What level should I be looking on for this elusive metal
@  T_McLean51439 : (15 April 2014 - 10:51 PM) Art it doesn't even show what you will be doing in the game. Its probably just the video you will see at the start menu if you don't press anything in a while. I mean it might be a good game, I just wish they would have made a better trailer.
@  seanos1998 : (15 April 2014 - 08:33 AM) i agree art, i agree
@  Art_Pavonis : (15 April 2014 - 01:58 AM) OH MY GOSH! This is gonna be so awesome! https://www.youtube....Q?v=qtYWqE55s24
@  ski11az : (14 April 2014 - 08:30 PM) Did the server crash?
@  T_McLean51439 : (14 April 2014 - 02:00 AM) Did the server just crash or is my internet being stupid again?
@  T_McLean51439 : (14 April 2014 - 01:37 AM) Yes cojay?
@  ski11az : (13 April 2014 - 02:00 PM) what is the login server?
@  MatthewSaotome : (13 April 2014 - 08:18 AM) my mining cart is not in that area.
@  MatthewSaotome : (13 April 2014 - 08:17 AM) thouse cords can't be right.

Please use the correct item name to prevent confusion.

The geothermal generator uses lava as a fuel source, and it shows how on IC wiki

The lava fabricator uses EU to create lava.

Please see my mod list.

Oh lol sorry for typing the name wrong :D

So if I attack a glassfiber cable to a geothermal generator, and attach that to the lava fabricator, then it will get power when I put lava cells in the geothermal generator.
But where does the lava fabricator put the lava? When I right-click nothing happens, so does it just spawn a lava block next to it?...

The lava fabricator will pump the lava into an adjacent BuildCraft waterproof pipe. Note that both the oil and lava fabricators use ridiculous amounts of power. The geothermal generator could never hope to power a lava fabricator.
Did you know I roleplay as a metropolice officer from Half-Life 2 whenever I have to deal with administrative problems?

And it seems redundant to use lava to produce lava....

It gives less, actually. If I recall, a bucket of lava is 20k EU, and a lava produced is either 20k or 50k, I forget which. You cannot create an infinite power loop this way.

That is true however using an oil fabricator there is a very complicated way to make infinite oil by means of turning it into fuel, you get more then 4 times the energy required to produce the starting oil.
