Uses

The Roundel Tap is like an Ender Chest that connects to a Tardis interior dimension's internal Forge Energy Buffer.

This buffer can store an energy value of up to the maximum value of the integer data type. This energy can be transferred around the Tardis.

  • Transferring energy wirelessly within Tardis interior dimension.
  • Transferring energy from Tardis exterior to Tardis interior.
  • Transferring energy from Tardis interior to Tardis exterior.

Configuration

The Forge Energy transfer rate of the Roundel Tap is controlled by a Server Config option called roundelTapEnergyTransferRate. By default this rate is 10 FE/tick.

Usage

Transfer energy within Tardis Interior

  1. Place down a Roundel Tap inside the Tardis interior. This is the energy input site.
  2. Place down a second Roundel Tap elsewhere inside the Tardis interior. This is the energy output site.
  3. Place a Forge Energy generator block near the input Roundel Tap.
  4. Using wire blocks from other mods, connect the Forge Energy generator block to the input Roundel Tap.
  5. Right click the input Roundel Tap so that its "emit" blockstate value is set to false. 
    1. A message similar to "Tap is now pushing energy to Tardis" will be shown.
  6. Place a Forge Energy storage block near the output Roundel Tap.
    1. E.g. Mekanism's Energy Cube.
  7. Using wire blocks from other mods, connect the Forge Energy storage block to the output Roundel Tap.
  8. Right click the output Roundel Tap so that its "emit" blockstate value is set to true. 
    1. A message similar to "Tap is now pushing energy to nearby blocks" will be shown.
  9. See that energy is being transferred around.

To see the current capacity of the Tardis' Forge Energy Buffer, use an attuned Tardis Diagnostic tool.

Transfer items from Tardis Interior to Tardis Exterior 

  1. Place down a Roundel Tap inside the Tardis interior. This is the energy input site.
  2. Place a Forge Energy generator block near the input Roundel Tap.
  3. Using wire blocks from other mods, connect the Forge Energy generator block to the input Roundel Tap.
  4. Right click the input Roundel Tap so that its "emit" blockstate value is set to false. 
    1. A message similar to "Tap is now pushing energy to Tardis" will be shown.
  5. At the Tardis Exterior, place a Forge Energy storage block near the exterior block.
    1. E.g. Mekanism's Energy Cube.
  6. Using wire blocks from other mods, connect the Forge Energy storage block to the exterior block.
  7. See that energy is being piped from interior to exterior.
    1. If the transfer is not occurring, please ensure the Tardis interior dimension is chunkloaded.

Transfer items from Tardis Exterior to Tardis Interior

  1. At the Tardis Exterior, place a Forge Energy generator block near the exterior block. This is the energy input site.
  2. Using wire blocks from other mods, connect the Forge Energy generator block to the exterior block.
  3. In the Tardis interior, place down a Roundel Tap. This is the energy output site.
  4. Place a Forge Energy storage block near the output Roundel Tap.
    1. E.g. Mekanism's Energy Cube.
  5. Using wire blocks from other mods, connect the Forge Energy storage block to the output Roundel Tap.
  6. Right click the output Roundel Tap so that its "emit" blockstate value is set to true. 
    1. A message similar to "Tap is now pushing energy to nearby blocks" will be shown.
  7. See that energy is being piped from exterior to interior.
    1. If the transfer is not occurring, please ensure the Tardis exterior dimension is chunkloaded.
