The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I am having a problem with de-constructing tool bits. I know you can use the crafting table to get back a chunk, but its not working in dev 69. Haven't tried it in RC2 yet as I just downloaded it, and it will take me another two+ hours to finally get in some minecraft play with the new version. Has anyone else seen this happening?
I posted this over at Tinker's main forums but it probably got lost in there.
I think it is more for your addon than the main mod. I was wondering if you'll be adding compatibility with bronze drops (tools/armor/weapons), steel and osmium. I love smelting down iron, gold weapons and mob drops etc., especially because I have Mo Creatures and Special Mobs which add a ton of gold and iron drops which I just add to the smeltery and away I go! Unfortunately, all the other weapons and armor they drop (Osmium armor, glowstone armor, lapis armor, steel etc.) the smeltery does not smelt. I can understand the gems etc. With IC2 and Railcraft and many others mods, my dungeon chests are now filled with steel and bronze weapons and armor which I am unable to smelt. I was hoping to have this addition in the smeltery since these additional ores are found in FTBs recent modpacks :)!
Also, Nether Ores! Would love to see these go in the smelter as well!
Thanks for the mod in its current state though, makes mob grinding for weapons and armor much more worth it!
I'm going to have "compatibility" by putting some lore in-game. On the one side we will have the Tinkers. They like to alter and rework everything that they make into something else, and not everything they make is useful. Base materials are crafted with known patterns in order to make them interchangable. It's the process of experimenting with different items and the usefulness of the item that makes them happy, not the tool itself.
On the other side, we have the Metallurgists. Their goal is to create the perfect weapon. Like a fine art, they melt down materials and blend until balance is found. The mixture is carefully poured into a cast, hammered to a fine edge, and perhaps a couple other materials are added to accentuate the piece. Such a fine piece of work shouldn't be tarnished by throwing random items on it. "
So, the question is, Will it be needed after the Reboot. Or are the two mods going to remain friendly, but non-compatible as they are now... It doesn't look good for Either.
oooo, will be adding this to my LP!
if you are open for suggestions, here are some(tech related)
* able to drain molten iron/steel into a empty table thing(forgot the name) and get iron/steel plates from railcraft
* refined iron as a liquid
* pouring refined iron into a blockmakerthingmabob(forgot again, silly me) to get machine blocks from IC2
* gear cast(4 ingots for 1 gear) for buildcraft/railcraft/forestry/any other mod with gears
* casts for other pure-metal based crafting components
this would expand TC to be used more frequently to make indrustial components, and not just only tools.
Throwing certain pieces of uncombined material into the smeltery doesn't do anything. Yet some do. I melted down three pieces of copper tool pieces, but a copper knife blade piece and a copper board would not smelt. Also no iron tool pieces I have are smelting either...am I missing something? I have plenty of lava in the tank (though it's not showing in the smeltery controller).
Also, crafting individual tool pieces is not producing ore chunks.
