    The reward bags definitely have a preference for a specific metal in each playthrough. This time it's tin. At 60% Bronze Age quest completion:

    How can I switch an oil cracking unit on and off? Since the controller block has to be in the middle of the front, there's no way to attach a machine controller. Can they be attached somewhere else?

    Turn a valve on the pipe giving it input materials

    It acts as a cover- so it should [in theory] fit on the side without interfering with the machine multiblock.
    Hopefully then a lever placed on the machine will provide enough of a signal to control it.

    I'm 99% sure it won't work on the inside of the multiblock. I had this problem too

    I tried to automate some steam macerators with hoppers, but they don't put the resources in the macerators... Is that supposed to work that way?

    Pretty sure steam things are not automateable, sorry m8. Just upgrade to lv

    That's not true - you can use hoppers and conduits. It's only the boilers that can't be automated (https://ftb.gamepedia.com/Steam_Machines_(GregTech_5)).

    You might be blocking the steam 'release' output side, which would stop the macerator working.

    I don't think so, I was able to hopper/barrel stuff into a steam furnace, but not macerators. Which is strange, because I swear it used to work in previous playthroughs.

    I tried to connect the hopper to the top, sides and front of the macerators. They were supposed to grind tons of cobble into sand.

    That is strange. I’ve definitely used hopper chains to fully automate Bronze Age ore processing before, including macerator input. It’s been awhile though and I’m at work so can’t check right now. Will try to get back to you tonight.

    Not sure if it matters but I almost always have the hopper input from the left side. Also, you cannot input from the front side, or the steam output side (as others have said) so that may be your issue (not sure)

    It's a bit easier to help with pictures.

    It seems that only cobblestone isn't being inserted into the macerators. Ores and such go in just fine from the top and left-right sides.

    Does cobble work manually?

    Yes, that's how I got the idea of grinding it into lots of sand. Sand gives you lots of cool thaumcraft stuff if you can mass-produce it.

    Bizarre. At this point (and probably earlier ) we can probably help you best if you had some screenshots describing your setup. You seem to have covered the bases but a picture is worth 1000 words

    There's not much setup, here is a macerator with hoppers. Works with ores, but not cobblestone.

    Can’t be certain without knowing how you put everything down but with all those hoppers you may have blocked your steam OUTput. Do you have the red exclamation point in the center when you open up the UI for the macerator?

    I specifically said top and left-right slots. Nothing is blocked. This isn't rocket science ffs. The hoppers are simply not inserting cobblestone, while they work on everything else.

    I shouldn’t even reply to you when you speak that way to people who are trying to help you but I will ask one more question . . . Have you transformed the cobble in any way so that it’s anything other than plain vanilla cobble? Chisel? Or, maybe you’re storing it in a barrel or something this is somehow changing the item ID when you pull it out? I’ve heard of that happening with barrels before. Those are the only things I can think of that would affect cobble and not ores.

    Classic, posting a bunch of completely unhelpful comments because you are too lazy to even read the description of the problem, then playing the victim. Don't kid yourself, you were not helping at all.

    It was the usual cobblestone made by Thaumcraft extruder. It was in a barrel, though.
