The solar panels you're using produce EU (Industrial-Craft Energy Units), but what the Quarry needs is MJ (BuildCraft Minecraft Joule). The Electrical Engine is part of the Forestry mod, which is no longer part of Tekkit for some reason or another. It performed that necessary conversion from EU to MJ. There is another block that does this, though! It's ...

No. It won't. Quite simply, the recipe does not take enchantments into account.

The quarry breaks open the chest and then picks up the items on the ground as it passes over them. It's the same way for beehives, if you have those in your world.

Sharing frames is perfectly fine, as you can see by these three operational overlapping quarries: Note, however, that stacking quarries, like the two on the left, makes one quarry ineffective. This is because quarries mine in the same pattern, so the second quarry is constantly trying to catch up with the first, not mine new blocks. Only frames blocks ...

If you want to have quarry with silk touch enchantment you should install QuarryPlus mod (BuildCraft addon). It adds more powerful and faster quarries (with maximal quarry area 256 x 256 blocks) and ability to add enchantments like efficiency, silk touch, fortune, etc to those quarries.

According to answer of Matthew Scharley here: https://gaming.stackexchange.com/a/81900 things won't move through unloaded pipes either so you won't get your materials till you go near the pipeline. and comment of Jonathan Drain here: How many chunks do I need to keep loaded to keep quarries working in Buildcraft? Everything fell out of the pipe at ...

If there is no room for more liquid in the pipes then no more liquid will be extracted. This can be easily verified with some of the Forestry machines which have internal tanks and a rollover on them which displays in detail how much liquid is currently in the tank.

I have no idea what that message means or why it appears, but I have a strong suspicion that it's a bug. For me, that message just goes away if I keep trying. Currently, Land Marks just generally have trouble connecting, don't work properly, or crash the server. I don't know what's up with that. What usually works for me: Place 3 Land Marks to denote the ...

No, they will not fill and overflow, nor will they just lose liquid. When the tank fills, then your pipe will start to back up until the pipe is completely full at which point the pump will stop pumping as it has nowhere to pump to. This means that your water tank design is perfectly fine. When one tank is full, water will bounce back from the tank and then ...

Your answer is in the config folder, goto buildcraft's config folder and open main.conf, open it using notepad, and where it says D:pipes.durability=0.25, somewhere near the bottom, all you have to do is change the number.

Yes, a quarry will keep chunks within its area of operation loaded before and after doing its thing. They will only be unloaded when the Quarry block is removed. To test this, I simply set up a system that pumps items out of an Ender Chest (from the Ender Storage mod) into a regular chest near a quarry that had reached bedrock. Then, I went to the Nether, ...

I think Diamond pipes are what you're looking for. They allow you to sort the incoming items in any of the 6 possible exits, via a filter opened by right-clicking.

An automatic crafting table can use items from a chest immediately adjacent to it. You can use the satellite chest feature of logistics pipes to send some items (such as iron pickaxes) to the satellite chest instead of the crafting table.

As has been pointed out in the comments, you want a Forestry MultiFarm These can be set up such that they require only a regular supply of apatite to keep running indefinitely. Two such farms will produce enough wood to make more than enough charcoal to keep a full size high pressure boiler running full time. This can be achieved by: Auto crafting ...

Yes, it will. I did some experimentation, here is what /chunkloaders looks like after I've placed the quarry: (/chunkloaders is a command added by ChickenChunks that pops up an extra window showing you which chunks are loaded in the world. White is not loaded, red is loaded, and a green dot means force loaded, by a quarry or chunkloader block.) As you can ...

You've been tricked The latest BuildCraft (version 3.7.2) from the official download site is for Minecraft 1.5.2. It will not work for Minecraft 1.6.2. Either you downloaded it from a scam/malware site that lied about being compatible with 1.6.2 (scam mod sites are very common, since it's easy to prey on people hoping for mods compatible with the latest ...

Use the Redstone Conduits from the same mod, since they're smart enough to stop the Energy Cell if no energy is requested by machines that they're connected to directly. (The recipe involves filling empty conduit with molten redstone in the Liquid Transposer, like the Cell's recipe.) You'll need a Crescent Hammer to set the Conduit to get the energy from ...

The buildcraft quarry obtains as a block any item it runs into, through the same code as mining with a diamond pick. If you can mine it, you can quarry it. Bedrock and other unbreakable blocks cannot be broken by the mining action of the quarry. The only things to be careful of are things that don't drop anything (like spawners) which are simply broken, and ...

Some mods are SMP (Survival Multi-Player) compatible and some are not, most are however. You can find out if a mod is SMP compatible by looking up its website or forum thread. Some mods work together and some do not, you can find out if a mod works together with other mods by learning how the mod works and lots of trial and error. Most forge mods work ...

I recommend Thermal expansion as it is a good add on for IC2 and it will also add the silver you need.

Forestry machines automatically eject items to buildcraft compatible pipes and chests standing next to them. If a chest and a pipe are connected to a machine, it will output to pipe only. Use diamond pipes to sort those saplings/seeds/etc. to a planter (arboretum, farm, etc.) and useful product automatically.

If anything, try disabling Matmos (no idea why it would lag, just that it's the only thing that's constantly running in the background), Smart Moving (again, no idea why it would lag, but I know it's running in the background), and potentially even Optifine. You could be running an Optifine build that isn't meant for your hardware which could cause the ...

a steve's carts tree farm is probably your best bet for a fully customizable resizable tree farm that grows anything. the cart assembler will need the following attachments: logger compact solar (sides) internal inventory(for storing logs, extra saplings, and apples during its 'lap') solar engine (normal, not basic, this goes on top) basic coal engine (a ...

Basically, what happens is that the Peat Bog and Turbary don't need the incredible amount of power produced and it goes back in the Combustion Engine. This causes it to overheat no matter how much coolant you have in the engine. One of the perks of using Redstone Energy Conduits from Thermal Expansion is that they will automatically dissipate unused MJ out ...

No matter what tekkit your using they have Pneumatic tubes (spellings a little incorrect) Theses are lag free and deliver the items into the nearest inventory. If the inventory is full it will try and find another one. If there is no other route it will just keep bouncing in the pipe. This stops overflow and allows you to log out without causing to much lag. ...

Quarries are not considered tools by Minecraft, and therefore cannot carry enchantments. Mods like Thaumcraft and Thermal Expansion have features that will mine with arbitrary enchantmants.

Depending on the pump you use. The Redpower pumps suck up water blocks, eventually draining a water source entirely, but IndustrialCraft pumps are not so "efficient". They will only empty a single water block, so as long as you have an infinite water source, they will pump the fluid indefinitely. A good way to think about it is an IndustrialCraft pump will ...

Yes. A Big Reactors reactor produces Redstone Flux (RF). Redstone Flux is converted to Buildcraft power automatically within most energy conduits. Redstone Flux is a common power system that a lot of mods use. Your reactor should be able to power pretty much anything except for machines from IndustrialCraft2 (and given the right setup, you can convert RF to ...

If you take a look at the bottom of the log file, you can notice that the game is having continuous rendering errors, most likely caused by the oil. Rendering this oil is using up a lot of memory, and even making the game run out of memory, as you can see is happening in your log, at this line: (and a few lines below this) 2013-04-12 14:50:08 [INFO] [STDOUT]...

Buildcraft energy is distributed by requests. A machine will request an amount of energy from the network it is attached to, and if there is power to meet or partially meet that demand, it will be delivered, subject to any losses along the way. The answer to your question is complex, and depends hugely on what machines you have connected, and how they go ...
