Hey everyone.

I'm certain there has been a program made for this, but in my limited free time, I've had no success at locating it.

Simply put I'm looking for a ComputerCraft program to control multiple Passively Cooled BigReactors. (I hate turbines)

I just need it to run All the reactors and adjust rod levels to match my energy draw needs.

The program also should be able to detect how many reactors are connected between starting at only running one reactor so more can be built at a later date as energy needs rise.

Up until now I've gotten around this by just building one reasonable reactor and having it charge a massive energy storage system like the one from Draconic Evolution.

I would attept program something like this myself if I had any confidence I could figure it out, but I've just gotten past figuring out door locks and through the Redstone API.

program requests are rarely fulfilled. However, many people will gladly help to write your own, even with your little experience.

Start by making a program which can manage one reactor.

I usually set the controll rods percent to its internal buffee, so if its 50% full the rods are 50%. I know its inefficient but meh.. it was a ghetto program that worked. Also this will help:

If you want a program that's already made, I suggest EZ-NUKE. Very easy to setup and manage.
Just put a computer port in the reactor(s), then hook them all up to one central computer via Networking Cable. Attach a 3x2 monitor (advanced), download and run the program and you're set.

Program here: https://github.com/s...reactor_control

Thanks a ton! This is exactly what I needed. Just tried it out and I look forward to implementing this in many ways.
