I'd like to highlight this idea. I've got your machines for almost all my needs, but the Killing Machine basically disables itself by killing all the animals. I'd actually like it to act like the Better Chests mod with the Killing Upgrade, where it always leaves at least two animals as a breeding pair. Having the limit configurable would be nice as well, as I'd like it on the low end (i.e. two) rather than high to keep mob counts low.
I have a... weirdness going on. My iron chopper was working perfectly until I decided I had enough oak wood for the moment and switched it over to birch saplings. It planted the birch saplings successfully, but they refused to grow, even when I spammed bonemeal onto them, although they grew normally when bonemealed in the same position if I removed the chopper. Then I found that the same thing now happens (or, rather, doesn't) regardless of sapling type - no type of tree will grow when the chopper is in place & they're within its active range - so the timing of my switch to birch must have been coincidental. I believe the only other thing that changed around the same time as the issue began was that I started using some "Power Advantage/Electric Advantage" machines nearby (electric rock crusher, arc furnace, oven, growth chamber & controller, battery arrays, hydroelectric & photovoltaic generators, with power cables connecting). I'd installed the Power/Steam/Electric Advantage mods at the same time as Progressive Automation, but hadn't played with them until around the same time the chopper broke. I don't want to dismantle the electrical set up unnecessarily - any thoughts on whether the EA machines could be interacting badly with the chopper, or should I be looking elsewhere for the problem's cause? If it matters, a PA iron planter that's also right next to the electrical machines was still functioning normally last time I checked.
I hope everyone had a good winter holiday and will have an enjoyable new year.
Please, Progressive Automation mod Author Vanhal and Lots of Food mod author Pifou9000/Pifou92000, can you make your mods work together? Prog. Auto. is one of the few automation mods currently working for 8.1. I use it in both 1.7.10 and 8.1 in my self made mod packs all the time because I love it's simplicity. Lots of Food is extensive without the bulk that Pam's Harvestcraft carries [and I always like avenging Hansel and Gretel by taking out the witches in the candy houses ]

Having a slight issue since the last 1.7 update (1.6.31) with the Crafter - It doesn't seem to allow anything to pull used (empty) buckets from the grid anymore. Was this intentional? Is there any way to .. fix it?
Normally in a case like this, I'd think that maybe I did something wrong, but machines that worked just fine prior to the update no longer do, and no matter the settings I use with the PA wrench, the behavior doesn't change.
Also seeing some issues with the PA wrench itself where it gets ... stuck? on modes when cycling through them (ie, It'll just set to Disable -> Output -> Disable -> Output rather than looping through all the functions). I don't have any more details on this, as it appears to be fairly random as to when it occurs, or what states it's stuck on.
Congratulations on one of the best early game progression mods that I've encountered!
In saying that, I believe I have found an exploit within the mod.
I was trying to use a Chopper to try and automate a charcoal farm in 1.8.9, and as such used hoppers. Apples seemed to clog up the system, and so i tried filtering them out. The setup is as in the image. The apple hopper (indicated) is facing away from the hopper next to it, and wasnt connected to any chest or inventory.
The idea was to have the apples filter into a hopper that wouldnt lose its contents, and everything else go past to the furnace. By putting any item (in all slots) of the 3rd row, first column hopper (the apple hopper), it's possible for whatever contents is placed in the grid of the CHOPPER (not hopper underneath) to convert to whatever is in the apple hopper.
