I dont get this...does this mean pumps can get water infinitely from a single source block?
Yup. The standard way people build pumps is to create a shallow pool so it never depletes. In BTB, with HCB enabled, that generally means filling in existing bodies of water so that they are only 1 deep. Not only is this labor-intensive without being able to move water source-blocks, it's also counter intuitive as you wind up filling in lakes to get more water out of them.
So, the draining of water has been disabled when HCB is enabled, so at least now you can pump straight out of a lake without having to reshape it to exploit the water-physics, which winds up looking a heck of a lot better. Also, water source-blocks producing infinite water is a standard part of Minecraft. This is really no exception to that.

Also, maybe make it so that attepmting to place oil in the nether results in an explosion. Right now, I use it in place of water in my nether bases!
I've tried really hard, but I can't seem to generate harvestable obsidian using Better Than Buildcraft 1.10!
I've finally gotten a pump, and can pump lava around, but I can't seem to do anything with the lava once it's in the pipes. I can fill up a tank, gather buckets of useless Hardcore Bucket lava out of it, but once the lava is in the pipes it won't come back out again or be useable in any way.
My plan was to pump lava out of a lava lake into an obsidian trough and then carry ten buckets of water from a source pool some ways away, but I'm finding this to be a complete waste of time since there's no way to fill up the lava trough.
Is my only way, seriously, to fill up my lava pool with sand until it's one deep, then hit it with a spout? This is insane, I can't work like that and get obsidian at any kind of reasonable rate.
Sorry I didn't respond to this earlier but I was rather occupied getting the 1.1 release ready.
Harvesting Obsidian for the pipes and such is already really integrated into the tech tree. It's pretty standard practice when using a Quarry to mine out a region, to flood it as it's going so that any lava encountered is converted to obsidian, and then mined as such by the quarry.
So, in other words, it sounds like you just haven't reached the point in the tech-tree yet when you can accumulate obsidian at a high rate, but that point does come down the road.
Flowerchild, or any other BTB ... should I say experts? I was wondering if I am running a BTW world (that I am heavily invested in) if I move to BTB will I be able to continue building upon that world or will it cause some problems?
I'm trying to figure out if I should continue w/ my BTW world and perhaps create a separate bin for BTB world. I'm trying to better integrate some of my systems but would like to begin working with some BTB features in the near future as well.
Yeah, I back up daily / every other day as well. Thanks a lot for the response. I might try and get BTB running, trying to get everything in my base running more efficiently and realized it may be a good time to get BTB as some things may change w/ that anyway.
