How are you going to prevent that suns will be exploited ? Theoretically suns are nothing else than an oversized fusion reactors and by placing solar panels around the sun
you get an (practically) infinite amount of energy.
To explain you what I mean just imagine I would place solar panels around the sun every panel has an Mass Generator and can rebuild it self.This might start slowly but it speeds up expondentially and after an relative short time I could have mantled the sun completely with solar panels which grant me an (practicaly) infinite amount of energy and build an huge star base around themselves (this gives the word deathstar an completely new meaning) at this Stage I cant be defeated and Am Invulnerable.
Something that should never happen. WHat are you planning to do against something like this?

Noone ever said we were going to have replicators and such.
I request to reform this thread into a discussion about replicators.

Good luck with that, Tyranid.

Why shouldn't it happen? That would be awesome.

I would doubt you would remain unattacked during this. They come in with a few frigates, pew pew pew your base.

Blocks will only be active in fully loaded areas, same as regular Minecraft, and that area is significantly smaller than the draw region. That's not going to stop being a limitation, so Dyson spheres just aren't going to work.

Not if it is shielded.

You could always send a Sun Crusher in to mine it safely.

There is an own word for it Shocked WOW

It will still be an big area and deploy alot of energy and by turning it into an starbase entity I could even expand the loaded region space.

I'm not sure what the surprise is about. This is the same way Minecraft normally works. If you were playing with industrial craft, you can't expect to get power from solar cells when you aren't in the area.

Tekkit recently added a mod called Dimensional Anchors that adds a block that keeps 1 chunk loaded, even if there isn't anyone near it. I for one will be using them on my Tekkit server, because I set up my base in a Mushroom Kingdom, so I have to stay logged in for anything to happen passively.

No you couldn't. The Sun Crusher was equipped to destroy stars, not mine them. Another ship with quantum-crystalline armor could do it.

All you'd need is a refit in the equipment and it's a Star Miner!

That would be a heck of a refit. For it to be modified enough to efficiently mine a star's energy, it would really have to become a whole different ship. It wouldn't bear any resemblance to a Sun Crusher anymore.

Do you know the size of a sun crusher?
It´s as big as a larger starfighter.
You can´t mine stuff efficiently with a ship that small.
