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.

Y level clear rain thunder
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 (talkcontribs)

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)

Feel free to correct it. -Xbony2 (talk) 16:30, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
