The same thing happens to me whenever I try playing modded Minecraft. Building up my lair, routing hundreds of pipes, and struggling with limited resources is the fun part. Once I have essentially infinite materials just waiting for me in some elaborate storage system, I lose interest. I wonder what (if anything) can be done to combat that.
Removing solar panels would go a long way I suppose, and maybe the big mining machines as well.
True, but I think solar panels still made it dumb, although it took longer. I think the problem is that there just isn't a real goal other than the creation of the bases since all of the built in goals (dragon, wither, etc) are pretty easy given quantum/graviplate.
I'm thinking a good setup might be gregtech with no quarries (maybe limit the crazy redpower mining machines too) and mystcraft. That way you are basically forced to go to an unstable dangerous world and do mining manually, at least until you build nuclear or crazy steam power and matter-fabricate your way to boredom.
