I joined a private server of some friends (FTB-Unleashed 1.1.7). They first installed their ME-Systems with controller, terminals, crafting tables and so on...
Now I crafted all that stuff too and set up my system. The problem I have is that my system randomly stops working. All ME machines report "Unable to communicate with controller". You can see then that the ME-cable is not connected to the controller anymore. The only solution is to put the controller back to my inventory with the wrench and then set up again.
We checked/tried a lot of stuff:
- Different colored ME-cable in my setup
- Not a power problem
- Place my controller in their house and build a long network cable (chunk loading problem)
Their system works perfectly but mine fails constantly, sometimes it works for 15 minutes, sometimes 2 hours...
i figured it out, it was a power problem! :(
i was powering my controller with an energy tesseract. so the chain looked like this:
array of ultimate solar panels -> mfsu -> sending energy tesseract -> receiving energy tesseract -> powerconverters -> me controller.
the mfsu on the sending side was always fully charged, even at night, no ups and downs there. placing a redstone energy cell between the receiving tesseract and the controller solved the problem.
