@  Brandocub : (01 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) I just get morr exited when you say "new additions" :P
@  XxShadow_sis... : (01 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) Yes, the wiki will be updated after the reset, with so many new mods listing them would be time consuming and it would ruin the surprise. But it will add so much more to the game, I think you'll love the new additions ^_^
@  LadySammy : (01 August 2014 - 08:08 PM) lol that skeleton xD
@  Drak : (01 August 2014 - 07:50 PM) Yeah, I'd like to know what is worth building if certain mods aren't in it.
@  JohnRaven : (01 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) Results!http://imgur.com/mktGZyo
@  JohnRaven : (01 August 2014 - 07:37 PM) blowing up my reactor! probably wont do much because of the safety features :D
@  Ravenor911 : (01 August 2014 - 07:35 PM) shame it cant be done before so we can read up on them in advance, maybe put some sort of disclaimer on the new ones so people dont get confused?
@  Bloodraven : (01 August 2014 - 07:18 PM) not til the new map is up Drak
@  Drak : (01 August 2014 - 06:25 PM) Could the wiki be updated for all the mods we will have access to?
@  Drak : (01 August 2014 - 06:22 PM) One week until a fresh start.
@  tm1618 : (31 July 2014 - 11:34 PM) beanboy I'm not sure we'll have the old reactors in the mods if we are going to Big Reactors, who knows though. Just don't blow up your base early like I did haha
@  XxShadow_sis... : (31 July 2014 - 10:02 PM) Yep, if you're not back by then then all your stuff would have been reset. Sorry to say that if it's after that date we're not gonna wait for you :P
@  MatthewSaotome : (31 July 2014 - 10:01 PM) @ stalry221 you have untill the 8th of august.
@  stalry221 : (31 July 2014 - 08:56 PM) i'm on vacation atm, so i hope the server admins does not reset the server and deletes everything i have done while i'm away
@  Werewolf_2343 : (31 July 2014 - 02:47 PM) Omg, i didnt notice... The map reset is the day of my B-day!
@  Werewolf_2343 : (31 July 2014 - 02:45 PM) Ill be inactive till 8th of august ill start playing in 16 of august im going to Egypt to see some artifacts and some other stuff :D
@  beanboy10 : (31 July 2014 - 03:46 AM) Until the reset, i've decided to build a nuclear reactor and test the setup I made for it. According to the planner, no components should melt and all heat generated per tick is removed. In the process of getting fuel rods
@  LadySammy : (31 July 2014 - 03:43 AM) *waits patiently* D:

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.
