Question about electricity grid


#1

Hello, im wondering witch max distance we can laid electric line with out the machine cant see the power sources or switch?


#2

Well, it seems there is no actual limit - as far as i read - but unloaded mapblocks may interfere with your network.
I think we configured six mapblocks (this is about 96 nodes if i didn’t calculate wrong).
Good luck.

Okay thank you! i will try to play around those number!

Oh and i should add - mapblocks are getting activated by “some” mesecons/pipeworks stuff (some because it is not always clear what does this) … i am not sure about technic itself in that regard… the setting i mentioned however is for the client

I will read about mesecon and do some test like if may be with a mesecon torch or the white flower or something. Like if i can find a way to extend the electric grid that can be usefull for 2 friebd to merge their electric grid and make it more powerfull and using less resources ! :slight_smile:
