Reactor was actually planned by my friend, using nuclear simulator program. I am still trying to find English translation for it. Only uses Neutron absorber rods and Uranium-235 rods. This setup is likely to kill everything living withing 50 blocks (escaping radiation from the corners), but luckily we build this thing on a Zeppelin high up in the air.
One of the reasons for this setup is a bug/feature in our installation. Every time you exit the chunk where the reactor-setup is running, some machines start to behave erratically. For example, large heat exchanger that accepts the 12 000 hu/t in industrial heatant -from reactor starts to accept 16k heatant, then 8k, then 16k, 12k … and so on. I checked the situation with Magnifying glass, clicking from the bordering chunk. It feels like ticks are combined in non-main chunk, causing fluids to move in “bursts”.
Problem with this is that if all machines sometimes run at their “maximum power level”, all following machines must handle the input. 32k steam/t from Tungstensteel boiler is too much for 24k steam/t Magnalium turbine, and it makes a lot of error noises from overloading. Again, this only happens if the nuclear setup is running and you are not in the main chunk (then it runs smoothly, producing stable ~6000eu/t).
I’ll do some testing after we get the Gregtech version updated. Our coal gas refining line + Gas turbine can handle the EU production for a little bit longer.
