Talk:Windmill (Immersive Engineering)
The numbers for energy production should be updated. I tested energy production vs. height in clear weather, rain, and a thunderstorm in a superflat world using an Ender IO power monitor.
|0-69||4 RF/t||5 RF/t||8 RF/t|
|70-100||12 RF/t||16 RF/t||25 RF/t|
|101-150||15 RF/t||20 RF/t||31 RF/t|
|151-200||18 RF/t||25 RF/t||38 RF/t|
|200+||25 RF/t||33 RF/t||50 RF/t|
I'm using the Space Astronomy pack, if that makes a difference, but since my numbers more-or-less match the ones on the current page I don't think any config settings have been changed. /u/SeriousCreeper said he used an Ender IO probe to measure the power output, so his numbers may have been a little off.
I would update the page myself, but I want to make sure I'm not violating any rules or haven't overlooked anything before I do. -- The preceding unsigned comment was added by Siarles (talk • contribs)
Why are we relying on experimentation instead of looking at the source code?
For instance, the whole "height" thing has been commented out since May 2017.
From my calculations, a fully upgraded windmill (all eight flags) will produce 24 RF/t at any height, which makes it match the 70-100 line, above.
When somebody updates this page to mention windmill sails and the deprecation of a separate "Advanced Windmill" block, you might want to mention it. Also, that any non-air block in front of the windmill (within 7 blocks) lowers the windmill's power output by a quarter of a percent. Talonos (talk) 15:59, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
