RELEASED Automate *

Connect machines and chests to automate them.

    Automate lets you place a chest next to a machine (like a furnace or crystalarium), and the machine will pull raw items from the chest and push processed items into it. Connect multiple machines with a chest to create factories.

    See the Nexus page for details and examples.

          The bait/worm bin/crab pot example setup as shown on the nexus mods page doesn't seem to be working as expected. All other machines fill themselves immediately after placement, but when I placed a chest with bait next to a crab pot, it didn't pull bait immediately. Does this have something to do with how crab pots work (once a day vs. a specific number of hours) or is it a bug?

            Hi @chromaticsimulator. Sorry, somehow I missed your message earlier.

            Crab pots should pull bait at the same time as other machines. It's possible they already have bait, or you have the Luremaster skill so they don't need it. Feel free to post your save file with the setup you describe and I'll take a look.

              Automate 1.2 beta is now available (attached). This release...
              • Adds the internal framework for the upcoming transport pipes feature.
              • Adds support for hay hoppers and silos.
              • Fixes mills not accepting input if all their slots are taken, even if some slots aren't full.
              The first one is a big change, so I'll leave the beta here for a bit to make sure it doesn't cause any unexpected issues. :)

              [Edit: download removed; see the latest version instead.]

                  Hi @Alaswing. Thanks for reporting that; it's fixed in the upcoming Automate 1.2 release. (You have another mod which adds multiple seeds producing the same crop, which Automate didn't handle well.)

                          This mod is amazing. I was getting super annoyed with having to hang around the farm all day patiently feeding, say, wood into my charcoal burner. Now I don't have to. Producing artisan goods is much less tiresome! Thanks :D

                              Version 1.2.1 for SMAPI 1.9/Stardew 1.11
                              Bug report: On rare occasions, under circumstances I'm not 100% sure about, it fails to extract finished items from machines. It will affect that machine and the item will stay ready for pickup until you fetch it, at which point automate resumes working normally.
                              One save of mine has a particularly loaded out setup (three barns with chests of fruit and casks) and I'll see the break affect 10-20% of the things finishing in that 'tick'.
                              I only see it when I'm doing a lot of jumping in and out of the automation loaded map. The bug doesn't seem to trigger if I'm around or off map when it needs to cycle. Maybe some form of race condition centered around changing maps as the time ticks?

                                @copperhamster: the mod will automate machines every 10 in-game minutes. If something gets missed for some reason, it should update on the next clock change. If that doesn't happen, can you see if there's any pattern to the problem? Does it always happen to specific machine types, or with certain items, or even specific machines in your save? When it happens, are there any errors in the SMAPI console?

                                  I have a problem where the Furnace is taking Ore from the chest and creating the bars or the quartz but then the item just disappears and doesn't go into the chest. The mod, smapi, and game are all up to date.
