The Hobbyist's Steam engine is a stand-alone engine, capable of running on its own so long as you supply it with enough fuel and water. The water inside will boil once the temperature of the engine is at or exceeds 100 degrees Celsius, like boiling water in real life. It consumes fuel relatively slowly; and, once it reaches its maximum temperature, 16 charcoal or coal is more than sufficient to power any BuildCraft-based machines, save for Quarries.
It needs approximately 7.6k heat of fuel to reach maximum heat (500 °C) and when at full heat it will burn fuel at a rate of 1k heat each 125 seconds and each 1k heat will generate near 4000 MJ.
To keep the Hobbyist's Steam engine from eventually overheating it's recommended to use a Aqueous Accumulator.
Max Output: 1.6 MJ (Or 2.0 MJ if an external steam supply is available)
Maximum Fuel Stored: 64 (one stack)
Maximum Water Stored: 4,000 mB (4 Buckets)
Maximum Steam Stored: 4,000 Units
