Hi there,

 

I recently detected that the Autonomous Activator (AA) now needs RF to work (~1RF/t). Since I was using them in mass amounts for my oreberry farms, they now stopped working.

 

To power the AAs with RF is not the problem, it is the way to handle/safe the energy. I don't want that my 100 AAs drain my energy system by continously perform a right click on the oreberry bushes. I just want to perform that every 30 seconds or so.

 

The problem is now, that there is no way to apply a redstone signal to the main energy cable of the farm to control it. But if I limit the output of RF to the farm to 1 RF/t, only the first AA in the network is working. I want to pulse ALL every 30 seconds.

 

Does anybody have an idea? Thanks in advance an good night,

 

Thax

I'd say keep them fully powered all the time and use the machines redstone controls to pulse them on and off.

TehRawrz has the right idea. I'm pretty sure Autonomous Activators have a setting to activate on a Redstone pulse, and setting up a timer for 30 seconds is easy. Assuming you're using EnderIO conduits for power and item transfer, adding the Redstone conduit shouldn't be a problem, either.

 

If you're dead-set on controlling the power, I'd recommend putting an Energy Cell on the input line, and controlling that with a Redstone signal. You'll probably have RF distribution imbalance similar to limiting to 1 RF/t, though.

Hell yeah, that works with the redstone Energy conduits, thanks!
