How to make a mill?
I used to make a mill with windmill outside of my log house.
Now I tried to move the mill to new location to actually look like a mill with tower, windmill above - height 6+ from mill 'workbench' ... but it doesnt work.
I put the mill back to original location and it doesn't work either.
it is written on the mill:
- meets room requirements
it is written on the windmill:
- maximum output - 200
- current output - 0
but there is no power, when windmill is above the mill 3-7 blocks away.
outdated wiki says:
- Must be place in a room with a volume of 10 or above
- May share the room with 1 other craft tables
- Containing room must be built with at least 10 blocks of type 'Log'.
and about windmill:
Windmills allow you to add Power to buildings. Currently they are not required and are for aesthetics only.
That doesn't explain why the mill is not working.
There is no such thing written in game.
Under the normal workbench there is a tooltip 'how to place it properly'
So the mill have to be inside or outside?
If outside - then how to connect it? how to power it up?
There was similar problem I believe:
But there is no answer which I am looking for.
Can You help?
power is only used when there are things to craft - if your mill isn't doing any work, the power grid won't show any power being used.
Invest in stocks, make numerous purchases on the property market, open a small business and turn it into a multi-national corporation... There's heaps of ways to make a million bucks... Oh wait...
"power is only used when there are things to craft - if your mill isn't doing any work, the power grid won't show any power being used."
I wouldn't make a post without trying to craft first.
It simply doesn't craft anything... I have flour time creation of 51 seconds, and it stays at 51 seconds.
put the mill inside a closed room and then put the windmill outside on the wall of this room. Then it works. its also possible to make a connected stone line to the building and put there an whatermill or windmill.
I do it on our server with an watermill:
its connecteted to the mortared stone room behind under the brick room only with one mortared stine line:
@Foolish_Crok If you go to the status page it should tell you why the mill is not functioning properly. this can be because its not in a room with the proper requirements.
