How do I use a .bsg file?

Stirling engine

uploaded by oziboy 2 years ago

This is a replica of a stirling engine type alpha with unmodded parts that are used ingame.
Using mods I could give the flamethrower a correct angle, though the site is down so yeah :P
I'd be thankful if someone could give me the blockloader mod though!

Wait until machine has almost stopped moving, then press Y.
If it doesn't catch up, you might have to give the flywheel a nod.

It doesn't run regular at all, it will sometimes slow down and/or speed up but I've found that it had to do with the angle the flamethrower was in.
Also, instead of the second cylinder which is supposed to create a temperature difference with the main cilinder wasn't needed as when the steam turns into water it has less power, so pulling the flamethrower away sould suffice.

Not a stirling engine, people keep using that word, but a stirling engine is very specific, and has no pistons.

Still i like your "ignition" system, it take very little energy from the piston...

Thanks for the compliments! I love feedback on my engines too, inteesting the armor helped, i may ahve to try that!

Feel free to browse my page, it has upwards of a dozen different designs and some repeats, but refined. I love engines. I didnt realize you were the same creator as the last engine i commented on. Im always happy to give some advice and honestly i will probably be stealing you ignition design, or a variant.

It reminds me of my creation:

Heres my V8 btw, it makes very little power for some advanced reasons, but looks cool :

And if you look at the main page i made the first engine that runs on a 90 degree firing pattern. (your first engine was a 360, so it this one, if you had hinged your 2cyl on the same spot it would be a 180)
