I can't use a normal Harvester/Seeder combination with Rubber Tree Saplings as the Saplings have a drop rate that is entirely too unreliable to continue the cycle for very long. Is there a reliable self-sustaining means of harvesting Sticky Resin for use in an Industrial Centrifuge for rubber and plant matter?

I am playing with a hybrid Unhinged/Unleashed pack.

I have every mod in Unhinged installed and these mods as well from Unleashed:

  • Adv Power Management
  • Adv Solar Panels
  • Biblio Craft Mods (all three)
  • Binnies Mods
  • Computer Craft
  • Damage Indicators
  • Equivalent Exchange 3
  • Extra Utilities
  • GraviSuite
  • Magic Bees
  • Misc Periphreals
  • ObsidiPlates
  • Plugins for Forestry
  • Soul Shards
  • ThaumCraft

I also installed:

  • Logistics Pipes
  • Infernal Mobs
  • Adv Machines
  • "Hybrid" doesn't convey any information about what mods are running. Can you be more specific? Like, "Unleashed + X, Y, and Z mods from Unhinged" or something? – SevenSidedDie Nov 15 '13 at 15:55
  • I haven't tried either of those, but the older version of the Direwolf20 pack, the Forestry mod has a rubber tree farm. That would solve it. – LLF Nov 15 '13 at 19:15
  • @Kendra does this tree farm, farm the teardrop shapped rubber nodules, or actualy 'sticky resin' – Ender Nov 15 '13 at 19:27

    @TheUgly the little ones you can use tree-taps on – Ender Nov 15 '13 at 21:17

    @TheUgly The huge ones aren't in the current FTB packs anymore. They're a part of RedPower, which hasn't updated to 1.5 or later. – SevenSidedDie Nov 15 '13 at 22:25

Given access to forestry you can build a Multi-Block farm of whichever size1 suits configured with rubberised electron tubes for a manual (you plant the trees) rubber farm.

1 Remember you only need the rubber tree logs that actually produce the resin, and no gaps. With a Gravity or Portal gun you can move the useful blocks on to the farm for a high density of production. Given enough time even a quarter of a small farm led to me almost filling an extra dimensional barrel (Factorization): my the time I moved away from that world I think I had something like 900 stacks of rubber.

    Perfect information. I'm glad you found that, Richard. My info was a tad outdated, as I feared. ^^' – LLF Nov 16 '13 at 0:56
