  • Resolve conflict of BC-IC2 Crossover Mod and Nuclear Control Mod: In file /cfg/IC2NuclearControl.cfg change

  • Balance BC-IC2 Crossover Mod. (/cfg/BCIC2Crossover.cfg)

    Balancing of petrochemical generator to fit with other IC2’s energy sources (fuel based on coal, bio fuel, which require a lot more efforts to acquire).

    256k eU on fuel -> 64k (1/4 of orig)
    568k eU on fuel via combustion engine -> 142k (1/4 of orig)

    Balancing of electrical engines to be competitive with one provided by Forestry.

    500 MJ per Coal (Generator) -> 1000 MJ (while, Stirling Engine provide 1.6k MJ)

    # IC2 EU required per BC MJ produced by an Electric Engine. Default = 8
    # EU per tick produced by the petrochemical generator when buring high energy fuels.Default = 32
    # EU per tick produced by the petrochemical generator when buring low energy fuels. i. e. oil. Default = 16
    # Thousanth of a bucket of oil produced per UU-mater.Default = 336

URLConnection & Accept-Encoding

February 19, 2010

Однажды, ничего не подозревая, использовал я простой входной поток, а там все оказалось compressed. Инструмент диагностики - fiddler2.
  * Gets an InputStream for reading data from the resource specified by
  * {@code url} taking into account response encoding: "gzip" or "deflate".
  * @param url the URL string which specify connection to remote resource.
  * @return 
  • the InputStream to read data from.
  • * @throws MalformedURLException if the given string {@code url} could not * be parsed as a URL. * @throws IOException if an IOException occurs. */ private InputStream obtainInputStreamFromUrl(String url) throws MalformedURLException, IOException { final String ENCODING_GZIP = "gzip"; final String ENCODING_DEFLATE = "deflate"; final URLConnection conn = new URL(url).openConnection(); conn.setRequestProperty("Accept-Encoding", "gzip, deflate"); conn.connect(); final InputStream result; String contentEncoding = conn.getContentEncoding(); if (contentEncoding != null && contentEncoding.equalsIgnoreCase(ENCODING_GZIP)) { result = new GZIPInputStream(conn.getInputStream()); } else if (contentEncoding != null && contentEncoding.equalsIgnoreCase(ENCODING_DEFLATE)) { result = new InflaterInputStream(conn.getInputStream(), new Inflater(true)); } else { result = conn.getInputStream(); } return result; }
