1. Eeyup.

It's a whole new game with Tekkit. I'm really enjoying it. The only thing that was kind of annoying was building an effective wind farm. And glass fiber cable is waaaaaayyyy expensive.
For a while my favorite pastime was donning nano armor and jetpack, grabbing a divinig rod and the mining laser and mining the nether. Now I'm sitting on a ton of resources. Also I set up a terraformer in the nether and now it's a quaint green corner.

2. I like the EE and alchemy route. i.e flying ring and power flowers.

 

In saying that I like making darkrooms for emc.


What servers are you using?
Could maybe join you online sometime.

3. Yeah, I still have a lot to learn on Tekkit.

I built my house near an oil well, because I thought it would be useful. Well, eventually I extracted the oil, because it was in the spot I wanted to build my pool. Long story short now I have a ton of oil in underground tanks that I have absolutely no use for!

I need to get myself a flying ring, because the jetpack is too imprecise. But so far I haven't done much EE, except for a transmutation tablet to convert materials and a condenser to produce diamonds from the non-useful stuff that my quarry dug up. I haven't started on energy collectors and the likes.

I play singleplayer offline, but I'd be up for some multiplayer. Problem is I have no idea how to go about it (unless you count joining some random public server, where griefing probably runs rampant). Why is there no DU Tekkit server???

4. Why isn't there a DU Tekkit server indeed!

 

Energy collectors are a must for not only making diamonds out of air but its the only way i know for making dark matter. Which you need for the flying ring.

PS:

I play on a few good public servers with no griefing all anti-griefing measures in place.

I could give you the IP of them.

5. Tekkit

Well, I can actually get started on energy collectors now, since by mining in the nether I collected a nice amount of diamonds (over a stack). Diamond blocks from the nether yield two diamonds with a macerator, and with the mining laser and divining rod they're relatively easy to find.

Still, using diamond blocks kinda makes me cringe. I started off the industrial route, a macerator and a furnace, a solar/wind farm, quarries etc. I was thinking about building a nuclear reactor, but I don't really need it. So I'll invest into some energy collectors.

As server the servers, I'd love to try them out, so PM me the IPs. Thanks!

7. Once I get a free moment to jump on the computer. I'll sent the server IP.

 

Never mined in the nether as it tends to blow up on me. Glad I'm not the only person who uses a divining rod. i'm looking into force fields at the mo.

10. Ok, thanks!

Yeah, the resources in the nether have a tendency to blow up, but I think that makes it kinda fun. With the mining laser you can keep your distance, and with the nano armor you take little damage anyway. Or maybe I just enjoy blowing up the nether!

I have Tekkit, but don't understand it at all. I am definitely a Minecraft addict

9. The learning curve

In the beginning I also had no idea what to do with Tekkit. I learned a lot by watching the Tekkit series by Duncan from the Yogscast. Starting with video 4, he gives a pretty good introduction to Tekkit. He slowly builds up from basic machines to more advanced ones, and then later also goes into Equivalent Exchange stuff.

I found it very useful because you actually see how to do stuff (as opposed to just reading about it), and because he shows things in a structured manner, from the basic machines you can build in the beginning to help you along, to the more advanced ones, so you can follow along at your own speed.

You can use the Tekkit Wiki ( http://thetekkit.wikia.com/ ) to complement the info from the videos.

One thing to note: Duncan uses electrical engines for some things, which in the meantime have been removed from Tekkit. You'll have to use an Energy Link in their place.

Here's a link to the playlist on YouTube (you can skip the first three videos):

Enjoy!
