So power is a really weird thing in agrarian skies I noticed. The max on input/output from cables and cube's is 10k RF/t. Which is in late game... pretty darn low... :P

 

So being the smart arse I am I build a reactor that when half filled produces 25k RF/t. Now here is the deal, I wanted this to power a laser that requires 25k RF/t so being all smart and stuff I place redstone energy conduits from my reactor to the laser. Only to notice the reactor was epicly fast building up in its internal buffer and the laser was still slow as .... 

 

So I was wondering how do other people do this when there is a need for more then 10k RF/t or do you really need to make several reactors that produce 10k RF/t with diferent power set ups to all your different machines?

 

Any ideas appreciated if I didn't make any sense questions are welcome to.

Try adding more power ports to your reactor, and run separate power lines to your lasers. Or output power into a tesseract, which has no power limit.

1.6 modpack? Download Java 7 here. 1.7.10+? Download Java 8 here.

Yeah I did this myself if I recall correctly.

The max on input/output from cables and cube's is 10k RF/t.

Keep in mind that this is the maximum transfer per connection. If you have 3 power ports on your reactor, each connecting conduit would be able to pull up to 10k RF/t, for a total of 30,000 RF/t. You can then run a single row of conduits over to your mining laser, and as long as you're hooking in to at least 3 prechargers (or three sides of a single precharger), you'll be fine to output all the energy you're producing. You can even add an energy cell along the path if you'd like, so long as you have 3 input faces connected to the conduits coming from the reactor and three output faces connected to conduits going to your laser.

Does that one machine that allows for more inputs to a single side of a block exist in Agrarian Skies?

Do you mean the Transvector Interface? I don't think so.
