As we all know fire goes out on MYM servers. For as long as I've played on MYM I keep hearing "flint & steel in a dispenser." But, one of the first things I learned in modded MC on MYM servers is how to start a permanent fire without flint & steel or automation. So, I figured it's time to put the word out. The answer lies with Thermal Expansion's Flux Igniter. It's very cheap to make. If you have netherrack you probably have the mats. And once charged up it can make netherrack, etc burn permanently with a simple right click. So if your pack has TE forget about automating fire just make a Flux Igniter. If your pack doesn't have TE, I would check what it does have and do some testing. If the Flux Igniter works then odds are there are other tools that do too.
