So I've been playing YCP for a few weeks now, and I'm having a lot of difficulty and encountering a lot of confusion when it comes to automated crafting with Applied Energistics.
I have a beefy AE network already, handling a couple quarries using tesseracts to transport items, and I have a system of autonomous activators automating a few Ex Nihilo Sieves that handle all the dirt/sand/gravel, etc.
The problem I need to solve is how to force my AE network to craft the ore gravel, sand, and dust from all the broken, crushed, and pulverized ore pieces I'm getting from the sieve. I don't need to use level emitters as I don't want the system to wait to fall below a certain level before crafting. Since the ore pieces have no other use, I want them to automatically use all available pieces to craft the smeltable gravel, sand, and dust.
I've seen some posts about putting the "crafting mode" icon in a precision export bus, but they weren't clear, and the system doesn't seem to want to start crafting any way I set it up.
I can craft anything I need to to get this working, I just need someone to treat me like and idiot and give me step by step instructions (and maybe even pictures) on how to make this work, because from what I've read, its 100% doable, but no one has really taken the time to explain it clear enough for my feeble mind to grasp.
