    I'm sure there's actually a machine that makes cobblestone when you input water and lava. But that's a lot more expensive to make than pistons, source blocks and a redstone 5-clock (or at least, that's my vanilla method of doing it..) I'll have to come take a shmosey at yours tonight.

My End Chest configuration now allows for 5 vanilla chests worth! I may have to upgrade soon though..)
    Anyway, the system isn't infalliable, as if there's only 1 space left it can still pull multiple items, and the rest get LEEEAAAAAK'd. So my Hungry Chest is positioned where they land to eat the excess.
    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..

On the plus side I built us a cobblestone generator in the hidden supply room, it works great! filled a diamond chest in just over an hour (it's the old vanilla way too, no fancy machines lol)

    Enjoy your foolishball!
    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

    @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

    @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?

    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

    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)

    @Sunnyknight, I'll see if I can craft some up for the top , though we'd need the machines at the top I think as the energy can only travel a certain distance through pipes (the shorter distance the more energy transferred) according to Gara. His setup seems to work very well though so it's just the recipe of Advanced Solar Panels will be the hard bit.
    @Garacesh, feel free to help me make some advanced panels
