The Water Garden

User "Drazla" posted this over on reddit

The reason it looks so great is obviously the great build but also:

The mod is Sonic Ethers GLSL shadows and the texture pack is the Mithrintia build server texture pack. You can find links to both on my Planetminecraft page for this build

Minecraft Power Station

Reactor Outside

This is a TNT fueled power station

Power Station Front

It is located next to a small town

Reactor inside

The key is to convert a TNT explosion into stable redstone current

Control Panel

All the functions of the Reactor are controlled from here

Fuel Store

A cobblestone generator is used to push the TNT through a series of pistons then into the reactor

Power Generator

The exploding TNT pushes the cart enough to start it rolling down the incline, when it hits the detector rail current is generated and the cart is returned to the top for the next explosion.

Reactor Shield on

Water shielding protects the building structure from the explosions.

Reaction in progress

Fuel injector

Fuel is delivered by the pistons to the top of the reactor, when it hits the redstone current it falls in

Power Transformer

The power is generated in pulses, by feeding it through these repeaters i can get a steady output

The Final Result

Of course I could have just used a redstone torch and got the same result - but that is not as fun.
