Yes, a lot. I think this is how it goes: A quarry uses 32 MJ/t at max speed. A redstone engine outputs 0.05 MJ/t when it is blinking orang/red, max output. So, it takes 20 redstone engines to output 1 MJ/t and then you need to multiply by 32. Yikes, that's 640 redstone engines, according to the math. I'd like to see a practical demonstation of this.
A power farm using 6 stacks of redstone engines ( 384 ) produces 19.2 EU/t and works quite well for a quarry. This isn't max speed but it breaks a block about once every second and works about as fast ( if not faster ) than two low voltage solar arrays. Here's a screenshot.
I was just trying to get a quarry running with two redstone engines but i tried every kind of redstone power i could resonably. the wiki says that you can power it with a redstone torch or a lever and i tried both and failed am i doing something wrong?
2 redstone engines are quite weak so i don't know if could power a quarry with it i suggest changing to 3 steam engines that what i normaly do. try putting the lever or redstone torch adjacent to the engine and then just wait a little for it to start
I Have waited at least four HOURS for the engines to *Power Up* but the engines are green which shows they are working but arn't powering the quarry.The lever/torch(redstone) is right next to the engine
I have tried conductive pipe and the engines are still sitting there with redstone torches in any position that could remotely power it and still nothing. the redstone engines are supposed to power the quarry via conductive pipe like the picture 10 comments up. the engines should be running and i have redstone next to them why isn't the quarry working at all???
that what i was telling you to do emc is a part of equivalent exchange it is what you use to create an item like to create 1 wooden plank you would need 8 cobblestone but on the other hand you would need more than 8000 cobble to create 1 diamond.
if you want i could tell you the materials and a picture to tell you what you would need to make infinite emc
maybe you misspelled it try looking for alchemical chest (i think i spelled it correctly) and then press u on it and look for the energy condeser also sorry i could respond yesterday because i didn't go to the computer
