Re: Steel Ingots - crafting - possible mod clash or bug or?
Hi there o/
Installed this mod yesterday and love it so far, but there seems to be a prob with crafting steel. I can see from a web search that this could be a problem with mod incompatibilties. I'm a modding noob - I mean I can tinkering about with config files etc if I have the instructions but delving around in mods themselves to make them play nicely with each other is something I've never done.
Anyway, I thought I'd here in case someone could help me. I'm sort of hoping this is a known thing and there's an easy fix but I have a sneaky feeling it's not.
Just for clarity, I'm aware this mod isn't being developed any further at the moment.
I've tried various ways of making the steel ingots as suggested in various places around the web (iron with coal combos, iron/coal dust combos, steel dust combos in furnaces etc - think I've tried all the possible combinations) and nothing works. Using JEI, the recipe for steel is a circular problem - to make a steel ingot you need 9 steel nuggets, but to make 9 steel nuggets you need an iron ingot. I can make steel dust, but can't combine them in any way.
As far as I can tell, I have one other mod referencing 'steel' - Zoo And Wild Animals Rebuilt (ZAWA) - and that makes iron ingots into steel bars (bars as in 'cages' not ingots themselves.) Could this be the problem? Is there a way I can fix this?
So that's the stage I'm at, but I realise I'm probably missing terminology/info, for which I apologise.
If anyone can help me, I'd be so grateful, partly to get the mod to work but also it might give me an insight into how mods work and might mean I can solve my own probs in the future.
Many thanks for reading this far! o/
