Produces: 1 x (above) Conductive pipes
Wooden Conductive PipesEdit
Wooden conductive pipes are used to extract the power from stirling and combustion engines (prior to BC3.2 redstone engines were able to be used as well) and places the power into the conductive pipes. The engines must be facing the wooden conductive pipe to transfer power into it. Wooden conductive pipes are needed to transfer power into the other conductive pipes, as the other types of conductive pipe will not take the power out of the engines. Wooden pipes cannot connect to further wooden pipes; a normal stone or gold conductive pipe must be used instead.
Stone Conductive PipesEdit
Stone conductive pipes are used to transport the energy after it has been extracted by the wooden conductive pipes. These pipes lose 5% of their energy for each block travelled.
Gold Conductive PipesEdit
Gold conductive pipes are more efficient at transporting energy. These pipes only lose 0.5% of their energy for every block traveled.
Note: Gold conductive pipes have an energy limit of 10,000 MJ, exceeding this limit causes the pipe to explode. This limit is very hard to reach except if there is a loop in the circuit, which happens if gold conductive pipes form a square shape, and the energy builds up over a period of time.
