Addons by Zippinis- IC forum post here. Advanced machines are upgrades of the 4 basic machines (Compressor, Macerator, Extractor, and Electric Furnace), and can be speedy without using overclocker upgrades. This is also handy because overclockers can use more EU, and limit the amount that can be used at one time, even when they are used in different machines. (Ex: three overclockers in a machine won't use too much EU, but if 15 machines with 3 overclockers are in use at once, it will use all the EU, causing the machines to run out of power, and flash on and off, slowing the process, and, making a very annoying sound.) Not only that, but on certain machines, there are multiple input and/or output slots, which may stop an overflow in buildcraft pipes. Advanced machines use the basic version of the machine, combined with an advanced machine block, combined with a few other things (varying from machine to machine) to be crafted. For example, a macerator in the middle, an advanced machine block below it, then all that sourrounded by refined iron, will make a rotary macerator. Advanced machines build up speed over time, and speed can be seen by the number that goes up as the machine is used. (Ex: Romaon the Rotary Macerator, or heat in the Induction Furnace.) Each machine has a limit, which is very speedy. Unfortunatly, the machine needs to be constantly running to maintain its speedy aspect, which can be acheived by applying a redstone signal. This uses massive amounts of EU(Only like 2 EU/T. Not even massive.), which is why advanced machines are recommended for an advanced user. If the machine is shut off, the number will decrease, causing the machine to slow. Wich is why advanced machines are good for factories, where they will constantly be used. In a lab sort of area, where machines aren't constantly in use, A LOT OF EU would be wasted. And the sound of all those machines constantly running all crammed up in one spot would be VERY annoying.
