Would you think this would be alright to build?

  1. Hello EMC! I have been thinking of doing this for a while and i have finally decided to do it, with permission.
    im sure some of you have seen giant tree crushers on youtube. I want to make one.
    now before you talk about lag and stuff hear me out. Mine would be smaller. i have even considered going into creative mode and test building some there that are small. I know EMC has amazing servers, and i know that on a 2 gig bukkit server it doesn't lag, but that is with less than 5 people on at once.
    also last but not leasat in my argument is that it would NOT be on 24/7, more of like 2-3 minutes at a time. some people have cobblestone and stone generators that use more redstone than this.
    if you are completely confused by what i mean when i say 'tree crusher' then look here:

  2. I sometimes use 500+ pistons and sticky pistons at a time. You dont need to worry about lag:p

  4. Yup! If it does lag, then you can just make it smaller:) Likely though, it would be local lag, not server wide lag, if there was any:)
  5. There are already a few of these(or similar) that I know of. Build it and enjoy.

  7. I beleive there are at least ten of these massive Oakenators on server 4 currently. I don't think I noticed any lag and remember a specific time when three of them were running at the same time.
  8. There are 2 only 3 res's away, maybe 3 of them
  9. I have made many of these. They generate no lag, and are AMAZING.
  10. I used to have my own modified version of this on my res no lag at all.
  11. Oh, and I added a stone gen attachment to mine. Its a nice feature to just turn on and let it fill up a 12 x 12 x 12 chunk of stone while you do other things. Check it out sometime on my 3 res. Vitiri modified the design to allow for glowstone / redstone pillars to save space on the vertical power lifts, but you will have to find it on his 2 res lol, it's hidden underground.
  12. I have one or a oakenator on my res was fun making it and there is little or no lag when using it when I use it.
  13. Does it mine the trees?
  14. kadboy ;)

  16. You have to do all the work you might normally do so they aren't much more than a novelty in my opinion.

    There are two features that make them worthwhile. They form the logs into a nice block that's easier to chop without hitting dirt and leaves. This has been a problem for me especially when trying to use an Efficiency axe.

    The best feature is that they strip all the leaves. I think the most time consuming part of chopping logs is clearing the leaves and harvesting saplings so this saves a lot of time.

    Downside is a huge up front investment in time, material, and space. If you use one, you'll probably want to build a skeleton or natural grinder somewhere, if you don't already have one, to keep you supplied with bone meal.

  17. Unless you already have 2 DC's of bones and like 10 stacks of oak saplings.
