Hi Greg

Is it possible to power the large shredder with an IV motor? I’m sure I don’t have a complete grasp of all the concepts involved like how much the batter box will emit (with no selector cover) to my understanding it’s amp = number of batteries , voltage = voltage of batteries i.e. 2048 for EV. So by using 4 EV batteries in a battery box i should be able to output 4x2048 = 8192 EU/t . Now the next step i’m really not sure if it works the way i intend it to, there is no IV batteries so to my knowledge there’s no way of ensuring a certain output in IV range, however I tried using an EV - IV transformer which successfully powers my IV electric motor. The problem is that the shredder doesnt seem to accept the power even though an IV motor powered by 8192 EU / t should provide 4096 RU/t which is within the range of the large shredder. I tried removing batteries to give it less power but nothing works. Am I missing something? Maybe the workings of the transformer? I see that in your screendump on you’re using EV motors so i was wondering what the rationale behind that is. You might have explainned this in your changelog but I can’t seem to find it so I’ll ask here, how does the overclocking work when there is no overclocking penalty? Usually the GU/t required depends on the base cost of the recipe and the minimum GU/t accepted by the machine (such that a 28GU/t recipe will require 112GU/t in a MV tier machine ) does this translate the same way in these machines except instead of multiplying the energy cost x 4 every x2 speed you multiply energy cost by 2 for ever 2x speed? will the shredder for instance only use 512 GU/t since all recipes are base 16GU/t ? or will it infact go all the way to 4096GU/t if you provide it?

I apologize for the long rant but it’s something i’ve been confused about for a while
