I'd forgotten about the ballad of alchemy ritual. Thank you for your time.It depends what you are trying to make.
For example, anything that uses 2 stacks of the same item (e.g simple catalyst - redstone) would be harder to automate seeing as pumping in items would require you to put 2 stacks of that item in.... but if you are fine with making a stack of certain items at a time, you can use ME interfaces and patterns.
I will use simple catalyst as an example:
When making a new pattern in the pattern encoder you would put:
redstone, redstone, glowstone, sugar, gunpowder
in the crafting grid
and then put a simple catalyst in the output
Maybe do a stack of each item?
And then put theme interface next to the chemistry set, and have it set to import into it. Then put the pattern in, and hook it up to your AE network.
Then when you request to crafting 1 simple catalyst (assuming you put a stack of each item in the crafting bit) it will fill the chemistry set
Then you just need a precision import bus to pull out ONLY the simple catalyst (or whatever you tell it to make)
It is hard to get it to separate the items which it uses 2 of (redstone in a simple catalyst) without going over a stack. So the best bet is to use the Ballad of Alchemy ritual. But it is possible to do it without... just VERY annoying
No other crafting is going on.Never had that issue personally. Are multiple crafts going on? (e.g. converting sugar cane into sugar which gets used to make simple catalyst) If there are, then you may need to add a co-processing unit to your crafting CPU. That's about the only possibility I can think of anyway.
a filtered extraction method? to take out what? the only thing i have been able to extract from the chemistry set is the finished productAnother very helpful mechanic is the crafting card in a level emitter. That will let you activate a filtered extraction method based on which crafts are in progress
They might be meaning one of two things: possibly extracting certain crafting ingredients from a buffer chest and into the alchemy setup on a redstone signal, or maybe they're referring to extracting items from the altar like slates?a filtered extraction method? to take out what? the only thing i have been able to extract from the chemistry set is the finished product
For example enderIO where the there is a always extract on brown and a set of filtered insert triggered on redstone, one for each recipe and activated by the level emitter.a filtered extraction method? to take out what? the only thing i have been able to extract from the chemistry set is the finished product
Ah I thought it might be something like that! I think I understand - very neat. If you had any images of such a setup with explanations, I think that would help; if not, don't worry!For example enderIO where the there is a always extract on brown and a set of filtered insert triggered on redstone, one for each recipe and activated by the level emitter.
Insert is done on green with a proxy chest.
