So I distinctly remember building farm plots of 9x9 and placing an Aqueous Accumulator in the center with an Openblocks sprinkler on top, and it ran. At several pages I have read that accumulators will collect a small amount of water even when not immersed, and the sprinkler's description references this amount as all it needs to run. However, my accumulators don't seem to run at all unless touching water blocks, and god help you if you try to pipe water to a sprinkler using the new Ender IO fluid conduits- sprinklers don't sit on top of them and to connect from the side leaves you with a huge ugly plate hanging in midair (where it conveniently sit on the side of a full-sized opaque block) that also takes up a viable farming block.
Is this something that can be altered in an ini file for the mod, something whose default setting was changed going into 1.7? Or is this even something that other people are noticing?
