Lava Power Tutorial October 02, 2013, 12:17:04 AM Okay guys, I've had a lot of people ask how I set up my power generation for my Industrial Craft machines, so here goes a tutorial!Step 1: Gathering the Necessary PartsSo, from left to right in my inventory are: 2 Levers, 4 Redstone Engines, 1 Pump (the BuildCraft version, made by crafting a tank and a Mining Well), a stack of Cobble (to build a platform, you could need more or less depending on the size you want.) 2 Endertanks coded to the same color pattern, at least 1 of the following either a Geothermal Generator, or a Thermal Generator (This is mostly preference vs availability of resources. The Thermal is 50% more efficient with the lava you pump in, and therefore outputs more EU per tick but is more expensive to build. Look up the recipe in the NEI and make your choice from there.), and finally at least 1 Chunk loader.Step 2: Setting up the Lava GatheringOkay, here's my basic set up. This is set up on a 3x3 platform, with the middle block broken out(This is so the pump can access the lava below). In the middle goes the Pump and on each of the four sides is a Redstone Engine (It's worth noting here that any type of engine can be used, as long as the Pump receives MJ but Redstone Engines are by far the cheapest and don't take any fuel. They'll be sufficient for anyone just starting out). Then on two opposite corners go the Levers. These are used to turn on the Engines. Now your pump is running. In another of the free corners, again doesn't matter which, place your Chunk Loader. Finally place one of the Endertanks on top and you're good to go. Be sure to leave the dial on the front to the default setting.A recommendation for the settings for your Chunk LoaderYou can use any size you want, just make sure you cover a decent amount of the lava source. If you're not sure how big that is, use the Show Lasers buttonStep 3: Setting Up Your PowerOkay first place your other Endertank down, and smack the revolving nob once. This will set the tank to output. From here place down your Generator of choice beside the Endertank. Congratulations! You're making power! To verify this, right click the Generator to open the gui, you should see something that lets you know the tank is filling. For the Geothermal it'll be a little red square and for the Thermal it'll tell you how much liquid is stored.You can place down any sort of machine directly next to the generator and they'll run fine, however if you'd like to store some of that power for later, you can make a bat box to store the energy.
