I found that coal needs 20 wood, instead of 10.
Is new version out yet with the changes made for the kiln?
Awesome mod! I found out that you can smelt quartz without coal. Is it intended? I went through 32 quartz without using a single piece of coal.
I've actually been wondering about this. I read on the wiki that every action costs coal. But I noticed Quartz didn't.
In the back of my mind, I knew something was up, but I subconsciously pushed it away because I liked it the way it is
...In hindsight, I should've spoken up about it
I desperately felt the need to speak up about how much I love this mod. It kind of reminds me of the Minecraft mod Buildcraft, and makes me dream of absurdly complicated automated systems in this game.
My one regret is that it only works with adjacent chests, forcing me to rethink my entire machine layout.
There is an option for diagonal as well.
That would still be adjacent.
I think what he means is he wished you could have chests and machines further apart instead of right next to each other
There's another mod out there that uses the Wood Path (ugly planks) as connectors for this very thing, might even be one of CJB's own mods.
Edit: It's Oranisagu's mod, not CJB's. Whoops. (http://community.playstarbound.com/threads/beta-farmautomation-mods-for-smapi-0-39-6.111931/)
Oh, I'm well aware of that one. To be honest, I'm split between the two. They both have their pros and cons...
As soon as someone finds a way to go one further than this and make pipes with visible items moving in them this will be a must have mod.
That one is way too op imo. This one, well, you can pretend that machines can automatically push and pull items from chests, not the other way around like immersion breaking magic chests which can milk cows and pet animals.
There is a mod that uses conveyor belts like this, but it's not complete right now
Well, I don't use the petting and milking functionality. I actually use it the very same way I use CJB Automation
Found the mod. I was wrong, it's not CJB's, it's Oranisgu's: http://community.playstarbound.com/threads/beta-farmautomation-mods-for-smapi-0-39-6.111931/
does this mod work outside the farm?
my sap and fruit trees are outside the farm x.x
also..Orangisgu's doesnt work with furnaces.
edit: im blind. and/or dumb. It works with furnaces too.
I basically only use it for the furnace, so that can't be right. I couldn't be more certain it works!
Are the slime incubators and egg-presses on the horizon?
This mod doesn't work well with mod Configurable Machines
So maybe you can give us a config to change output amout?
I'm using a chest flanked by a seed maker and furnace. The mod works perfectly. Thanks!
For some reason when my seedmaker pulls crops from chests, the game crashes. Is anyone else having this problem?
I'm not. You write, "chests." Are you using more than one chest at a time? Because that might be the issue. I'm using one chest placed between a seed maker, and a furnace. No issues.
Or consider, too, if you're running any other mods that might be incompatible with this one.
