So, after a long time playing, I’ve finally crafted my first Autocrafter! After some deliberation, I decided the first thing I wanted to make in it was a Footlong from Pam’s HarvestCraft.
Footlong requires a
Cutting Board or something that can be substituted as one (such as a GT6
Pocket Multitool (Knife)), as well as the following (or anything that can be substituted for them):
Cooked Chicken /
So, on my first attempt, I gathered the ingredients for the recipe, then made a
Blueprint of it in one of my
Advanced Crafting Tables. I used a
Thorium Knife for the cutting board, and more-or-less standard ingredients for everything else (
Tomato, and a jar of
Mayo from GT6). I tested to make sure it worked in the
Advanced Crafting Table first, then after confirming it did, I scanned the
Blueprint to a
USB 1.0 Stick in a
Scanner. After doing so, I placed the
USB 1.0 Stick with the blueprint into the Autocrafter, and it pulled in all the ingredients for the recipe except for the
Knife. When I put the knife in there manually, it still refused to craft it.
After that failed attempt, I more or less worked out that the
Autocrafter won’t craft any recipes involving manual GT6 tools like the
Knife. So I figured, okay, I’ll go make a
Robot Arm Blade Tip. I did that, placed it in the
Autocrafter's input chest, and the
Autocrafter wouldn’t pull it in as input. So, I went back to the Advanced Crafting Table and tried to make a new blueprint, substituting the
Robot Arm Blade Tip for the
Knife, and I found that I wasn’t able to. On closer inspection, it appears that while the
Pocket Multitool (Knife) belong to the
toolCuttingboard oredict, the
Robot Arm Blade Tip does not.
Eventually, I just wound up making a normal Pam’s HarvestCraft
Cutting Board, replaced the
Knife with it in the recipe, made a new
Blueprint, scanned it to the
USB 1.0 Stick, and plugged it into the
Autocrafter and that finally worked.
Still, I’m surprised the
Robot Arm Blade Tip isn’t considered a
Cutting Board substitute, since it’s seemingly the robotic equivalent of two other tools that are
Cutting Board substitutes. That being said, would you mind changing things so you can use the
Robot Arm Blade Tip for Footlongs and other similar recipes? That way, if somebody wants to remove the recipe for the Pam’s HarvestCraft
Cutting Board (which has infinite uses) they could without losing the ability to craft recipes involving it in an Autocrafter.
