Working with the redstone and torches is fun especially with the pistons. One need a good graphic card to perform such tasks. But sometimes problem occurs while making huge things in game as it might be due to windows problem.
To fix such problems i would suggest to perform optimizing steps. Some helpful material is published in this website:
Make flashing lights and kill things with a fire aspect sword... Build a house,make a jail and lure people into it and starve them... Take their XP and enchant stuff... Or just build a house and try to survive.
tekkit is just amazing, i love my server, cant wait till i can make it public
