@  lokiare : (26 August 2014 - 06:55 PM) Is the digital miner from mekanism usable in the overworld?
@  Drak : (26 August 2014 - 01:52 PM) Could just ban the balloon item and perhaps it will disappear.
@  hiroscho : (26 August 2014 - 12:31 AM) please note that the crash report is reproduced from singleplayer
@  hiroscho : (26 August 2014 - 12:29 AM) Since i'm crashing the server there too I might as well post the crash report: https://gist.github....ccad2f3dc03e95e
@  hiroscho : (26 August 2014 - 12:16 AM) you should make a wall around the area so that no more ppl can load that chunk
@  hiroscho : (26 August 2014 - 12:15 AM) He is around x56 z-160, zappy managed to corrupt a chunk around there
@  SuicidalEmbryo : (26 August 2014 - 12:13 AM) n8crafter where are you?
@  Ravenor911 : (25 August 2014 - 09:01 PM) and I can see the server is still iffy.... sigh.. this is not good
@  Ravenor911 : (25 August 2014 - 09:01 PM) Art, it does load, it just takes forever! I think its the fact that single player world, is 'endless'
@  lokiare : (25 August 2014 - 08:15 PM) Is there a mod on?
@  hiroscho : (25 August 2014 - 07:57 PM) Hope galen does something about that chunk soon, i want to play again q.q

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.
