industrial craft and rail craft compatibility

#1SCGhost2424Posted 11/18/2012 8:12:59 PM
Maybe this is not the place to ask but does anyone know how compatible is industrial craft to rail craft? Like can i power rail craft machines with electricity from industrial craft? I would test this myself but im stuck at work.

Lastly, is there a way to re create a world so u can add new ores from mods without losing everything u have build? Or u dont need to create a new world at all?

There may be a third party mod that enables this, as there are with a lot of mods that use similar mechanics. I don't have any specific information, however.

Not directly. Railcraft needs Buildcraft's MJ (Minecraft Joules) to work. You would need to install Forestry. Then use an electrical engine to convert IC2's EU to MJ. In newer versions of Railcraft there are engines that provide MJ for this so Buildcraft is not required.

Edit: Answer to 2nd question. There is always Mystcraft if you do not want to explore new areas beyond what you have explored. Other than that I'd stay away from things that promise this unless it is from the mod developer.

I see. Hmm so basically i still should install buildcraft? I became familiar with industrial craft power system so i i didn't want to install other mods that would change that.

Im not sure i understand.. If i install a mod that adds new ore, i can find these ores if i just move really far from my starting point? Aeg.... Maybe i should just start a new map... It sucks if i have to do that for every mod i decide to use.....

Thanks a lot though, I'll look up the mods u mentioned

If you wander far enough out of what you've already explored, the new content will generate, but anywhere you've already explored will not contain any of the new stuff.

If he's playing Tekkit rather than just the mods themselves, the Energy Link will do the same thing without needing Forestry.

Or maybe the Energy Link is in the current versions, I dunno.

NEI (a successor to TooManyItems) has a Recipe mode. You can look up the recipe for any item in-game. You won't need to scour the internet for the recipes (if that is what you meant. I may be misunderstanding.)
