Tekkit Classic Discord?

Just curious if there is a Discord for Minecraft's best modpack.

Is there one? If not, would anyone have any interest in joining one?

It'd be fun to hang out together in Discord and start our own server together, or the like.

EDIT: One has been made. As seen in the comments, the link is:

Infobox Templates


I'm going around adding information on infoboxes where I can to fill in the blanks and have a standardized look, and I've noticed that there are two different templates used for the infoboxes, Item and ObjectInfo. It seems ObjectInfo is meant the be the primary one used as it has proper linking to an object's source mod and such, but it lacks the properties used to add physics, transparency, and luminance. These are included in the Item infobox, but that template doesn't have the same linking capabilites as Objectinfo. For some reason, they were removed from Objectinfo, though the Common Templates page still has the example of an ObjectInfo infobox with those properties. I was thinking about adding those properties back to ObjectInfo…

Even after all these years Tekkit is still fun to play

I got a new computer there recently and one of the first things I installed on it was the Technic Launcher.

Even with all of the new items and features in the newer versons of minecraft and the even more complex mods there are now I still find it fun to come back and play a bit of Tekkit or other packs from Technic every so often. So many memories.

Tekkit classic server problems

So, I'm running another tkc server, and I seem to not be able to escape painful bugs. This time, it so happens that some items kick me out of the server, or even freeze the game upon crafting or picking up, for example bows, dm pedestals, those nova bombs and so on, as well as placeable tablets. I do have ways of removing them in case it happens (until that, I had to completely remove the player file in the server), but is there any way of preventing/fixing this? Some of the bugged items would be of use.

Any help welcomed, thanks!

Problem chunk

So I've been running a tekkit classic server for some good months with my friends on a laptop, and It's been running surprisingly good, both fps and performancewise.This has been until the point where we've built a large automatic cobblestone factory (it is the largest and most complex of our structures until now, and we've been trying to do everything) and since that, the chunk in which the factory is located began to lag increasingly after a while (It ran good for a time), and at the moment it lags horribly, making it unplayable.Naturally I wouldn't worry a lot but this one chunk is next to the server city, and we can't even mine in it.

My specs are AMD A8- 6410 Radeon r5 graphics, two video cards, AMD Radeon  r5 and r5 m330 respectively,…

Tekkit Classic experts and researchers needed!

Hello everyone! We are seeking expert Tekkit Classic players to represent the Tekkit Classic Wikia as part of our ongoing effort to improve the quality of our Wikia pages. As some of you probably know, there are still many pages with errors in them, and so I am looking for those with deep knowledge of the game, many years of experience in Tekkit Classic engineering, and a keen eye to ensure that our Wikia continues to be the best source of information for Tekkit Classic, bar none. If that sounds like you, leave a comment below with your most impressive engineering feats (no architecture please), pioneering discoveries, and anything else impressive you know or have done in Tekkit Classic, as well as your Skype/Discord username, and I will s…

Weird performance issue

My issue is that tekkit classic, for me, runs a lot slower on a 2016 laptop than on a 2004-old pc (if I remember correctly).I am generally playing on a world with quite much everything concerning machines built (it is truly a bit laggy world) and I cannot make a server for my friends (thing which I intend to do) beacause of this and RAM allocation also.

The specs come as following.The laptop (4gb ram -- of wich 3 are assigned to tekkit -- APU A8-6410 Quad-Core with R5M330) and the pc (2gb ram Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+).

Thank you!

Solar Power Mechanics

There are 24000 ticks in a Minecraft day, which is 24 Minecraft hours long. Since there are 20 ticks per second, a Minecraft day is 1200 seconds, or 20 minutes. Therefore, by the table above, one can calculate that solar power operates for 54.5% of a Minecraft day. Interestingly, IC2's developer must've mistakenly thought 12540 - -540 = 12000 or accidentally made solar power operate 540 ticks before the start of the day instead of after, as those numbers are just too convenient and significant (being exactly half a day cycle) to be mere coincidence!

HV: 512 EU/t * 0.545 = 279.04 EU/t

MV:  64 EU/t * 0.545 =   34.88 EU/t

LV:     8 EU/t * 0.545 =     4.36 EU/t

Macerator/Extractor/Compressor: 16 OC, 3689 EU/t

3689 / 279.04 = ~13.23 HV Solar Arrays

Pull Rates of Energy-Linked Wooden Transport Pipes by EU/t

The table below documents the pull rates of energy-linked wooden transport pipes by EU/t. Note that while most inventories can be pulled at a rate of 64 items/t (a full stack every tick!), EE inventories are limited to 1 item/t. Thus, 2 and 160 EU/t provide the power to pull at max rate for the two types of inventory.

Redstone Engines - Time to warm up?

Hey folks,

I want to build an automatic machine run by a computer. The only problem that is left is that i don't know how long the redstone engine takes to warm up. I've tried different things ,but none is accurate enough. I need the exact time how long the engine need's to change from

- the blue to the green phase

- the green to the yellow phase

- and the yellow phase to the yellow-red phase

Please keep in mind that the time must be in ticks and very accurate.

If someone could somehow find out how many ticks I need in each phase to get to the next. I would be really thankful for that.

Force field thingy (not the actual one)

Today I made a large solar array using 30 HV arrays.I connected them to a MFSu through glass fiber and then to a canning machine.Well, it exploded.The actual problem is some kind of force field or barrier wich pushes me back whenever I approach the explosion zone, and is invisible.Pushes me back whatever I try but I am quite sure it's not a bug.Anyone knows how to get rid of it?

What's this About?

This my friends, is about the long awaited ccSensors information Update.

What's being done?

if you find yourself asking what's being done? then here let me explain:

After the years of experience I've had with ccSensors, Integration with ComputerCraft and other mods, i've decided the time has come for me to Completely overhaul the Information that's currently listed, with Everything we have learnt.

What's Included?

Everything we know about ccSensors will be included in this overhaul and I mean everything, I've even began preparing simple Optional Server and Client Patches for the mod, so that, we can finally weed out them annoying NullPointerExceptions and all.

You won't need the Client Patch to play on a Server with the Patch and…

Getting Started: Encouraging More Users!

Hey guys! It's been a long time, but I'm back with some more heavy-duty editing! 

Now, I've realized the the TC wiki has shrunk since it's good old days, but we still have newcomers every now and then (scrolling down on the Technic Launcher thinking "WTF is this Tekkit Classic?"). I want to make it easier for new TC players to get a feel for the game, and understand the game mechanics easier. That's why I revamped the Getting Started page, which currently covers IC2.

Of course, IC2 isn't the only mod here! If one of you guys feels like, "Hey, I'm good with [mod name]! I bet I could teach a newb the basics!", then feel free to make/edit a Getting Started Page for that mod! We currently have a EE2 and BC one, but we're lacking RedPower, RailCr…

The future of this wiki

Well, well, well... It has been a long time, hasn't it.

I've been away living my life but I have still been keeping my eye on the wiki (you can read that last bit in a creepy voice if you want :P ).

Let's be honest - since the wiki was founded a huge amount has changed, not just in the Tekkit universe, but also in the much wider Mincraft one too! However, there is no escaping the fact that Tekkit Classic has defiantly had it's heyday - This wiki was once the 5th most popular wiki on Wikia and was getting over 8 Million views a week! Now it has fallen to a much more modest 185th place and is obviously getting far fewer views.

But, people are still using it, quite a lot - given how old Tekkit Classic is, and edits are still being made!

Infinite Power With Equivalent Exchange

If you set this up right, you can have infinite power.

You need:

  • A condenser
  • Energy Collectors (Any MK, Any amount, depending on the power you need)
  • Anti-Matter Relays (Any MK, Amount that goes with the collectors)
  • Pneumatic tubes
  • Transposer
  • Timer (Can be just a redstone clock)
  • Generators (Any amount, more = more power)
  • Cables (Copper cables, glass fibre cables etc)
  • Whatever you use to hold your power (MFSU, MFE, Batbox)
  • A piece of charcoal (Charcoal has lower EMC than coal, so its easier to make in a condenser)

Set up the condensers to create EMC with the collectors and relays (if you dont know how to do this, look it up on YouTube or something, there are plenty of tutorials).

Set up the transposer to take items out of the condenser. Use the timer to p…

Then another time I was writing on a sign and I randomly exploded and broke the sign and part of the building next to me.

Tree Chopping Mod

So, basically, I'm just looking for a mod that will allow me to chop down trees and use the new items from Tekkit Classic (e.g. Ruby Axe, Chainsaw, etc.) I've looked around and tried a few mods, including ChopTree, but none of them seem to work when you add other allowed items that can chop trees. Also, if the mod could also "pop" the leaves, that would be preferred. Thanks!

Tekkit Classic Server Problems

Ok, so I'm in a bit of a pickle here. Bascially, I'm trying to run a tekkit classic server on my older computer that runs Windows Vista and play on it using my newer computer that runs Windows 7. At my house our Wi-Fi is weird, so we have two routers that are configured separatley. I'm currently using seperate routers for my two laptops. Both of the routers are configured with the 25565 port to allow server connections, so that isn't my problem. When I run the server on the older laptop, everything works fine. When I try to play on it using my newer laptop however, I can't connect. I've tried using both the internal and external IP's of both routers but neither of them seem to work. I'm considering changing the routers so that both of my l…

Where is Everybody?

Hello. It seems to me that this wiki isn't having a whole lot of activity (which is understandable, considering that the people who made Tekkit Classic stopped working on it a while ago and have changed to more up-to-date modpacks). What kind of gets me worried though is a lot of users are inactive, including admins. If this is the case, what will become of this wiki? Will the people still here just keep making edits without anything really changing? Again, this is just what I've seen, so if any of this in incorrect, please correct me. Thanks! :D

Picking the Correct Storage Unit

I recently read Ewnrrthanadmin's blog post about different storage units, and have decided to, ah, write an article on the subject. This'll be my first blog in a couple months, so bear with me here.

which chest?

I've Desided to make a blog about the chests of the game. What is the best chest?

Im my opinion, I would have a debate between theAlchemical Chest, the Diamond chest, and theCrystal Chest. Now let the debate begin.

  • 1 Cost
  • 2 Storage
  • 3 Appearance
  • 4 Wrap up

Obviously, the alchemical chest wins in this one. The alchemical chest defentely has the lowest EMC/Slot, I don't even have to do the math. Then the diamond, and in last place crystal. If your looking for a low cost, high storage chest, then the alchemical chest is the anwser. 

score- A=1 D=0 C=0

In last place is the alchemical chest here for sure. Then we have a tie with the Crystal and Diamond for storage. Here if I had to make a choice storage-wise, it would be crystal because I dont have to go dig…

As the title suggests, this blog is about some updates I've made to the Forums!

Here is the list of changes:

  1. The "News and Announcements" board has been renamed to "Wiki News and Announcements" and, just to remind you all, you should NEVER create a thread in that board! It is for admins only.
  2. The "Hello & Welcome" board has been completely removed. This was, firstly, due to the fact that users were using it to ask questions that should have been in the "Questions and Answers" board and, secondly, that 99% of the users that used it to say hello were anonymous users (users without an account) that would only say the word "hi" or "hello" in a thread.

Userpage Updates

Hello everybody!

This is just a quick heads-up to let you know that I've updated the Userpage Template (the default one that gets created when you create a profile on this wiki).

This change will only affect new profiles from now on. However, some of you will have seen that I've been editing quite a few profiles (when I say "a few" I mean over 200). This is because of a bug that made certain userpages show up in the "Pages with broken file links" page, despite not having any missing file links.

Anyway it's all fixed now.

While I'm on the subject of profiles, if you haven't already done so, why not update your userpage to be a bit more... "you"!

If you're logged in all you need to do is go to your profile by clicking your name in the top right o…
