Get a Pickaxe Turtle and make it fully automated! :P

I have a mechanism I admittedly ninja'd from Xal, using an iron OR gate and an iron OR gate with a pulser to only pull items out of my end chest if there's space in the iron chest at the end of the pipe (I now have two iron chests, so it goes End > Iron > Iron, to add even more storage space.. My End Chest configuration now allows for 5 vanilla chests worth! I may have to upgrade soon though..)

Unfortunately, it also won't pull through items if the chest is full. That's the rule. So if there's half a stack of iron ore, but the chest is full, any subsequent ore won't be pulled through to be added to that stack.
.. although I think Hungry Chests might not be enough for the size of your quarry LEEEEAAAAAKs..

Hey hey hey, it's only 1 night so far, i said i MIGHT be off tonight lol 26? towers left to build, after the 2nd layer have been completed all round. Then they branch out about 20 blocks at a time, circling around so that my rail can pass through em all. I'll show you though lol. Cobblestone gennies are easy, 1 piston, 4 buckets of water and lava, redstone switch and redstone dust. Bob's yer cookie.

Have a tonne of chests all feeding into each other so the items perpetually go round-and-round-and-round-and-round-and-round-and-round-and-round-and-round-and-...
You might get yelled at for that, though

Oi, you lot, no breaking the server with crazy loops.
I might finally get my power grid running tonight. I've got enough oil to run a single steam boiler for about 40 days... Need moarrrrrr.
And no, not going nuclear yet.
3rd June 2013, 03:07 PM #230
I want to go nuclear, but I don't have any purpose for it ;_;
I don't need to farm mob drops or power huge furnaces or.. Stuff. I dunno. xD

@Garacesh, come have a nosey tonight and I'll show you where it is & how I've done it - it's nothing special but it's all I had available resources wise. Any pointers/help would be welcome of course

You know when you say 'you better not do it', they usually do it :P

@Garacesh, I have 3 solar panels and an MFE! Then I realised I needed advanced solar panels I imagine it'll take me a while to get the recipe sorted for those I also hooked up 8 redstone lamps for the bacon factory, will need your help finishing it up tonight if that's okay?
4th June 2013, 11:41 AM #234
Sure, I'll give you a hand.
Regular solar panels work, but they only generate 1 EU/t during the day and nothing at night, so they're a little slow. Get a chunk loader going so they generate energy whilst you're offline, that'll help a little bit. Make sure to have a torch next to them so they don't get snowed over!
Also start a wood farm so you can make charcoal for running a generator in emergency circumstances. Advanced solar panels take a while to get, but Xal is able to produce UU-Matter so he helped me out, I'm sure he'd be nice to you if you fluttered your eyelashes a bit.
Honestly there's much better ways of having your own in-house fuel generated, but solar panels take up the least space than blaze generators or such :P

Those would be ace on our towers! Nice blax nice. Well done my chihuahua

FYI, I don't know what tool you need to pick up a solar panel. There's a prototype omniwrench in my storage (in the chest with the chip on it) that if you shift and right-click the TOP of the panel, it will drop it to be picked up. Otherwise, you'll just get a generator back.
I lost so many solar panels before I figured that out ;_; and silicon plates weren't easy to produce. Had to centrifuge 40 redstone just for (what ended up as) 2 plates (i.e. 40 redstone for 1 solar panel)
