hello
i'm sorry to bother this wonderful community, but i am noob and i need your help!
please, be patient, i'm learning how-to.

i'm creating my own simple mod by using Eclipse. everything went fine, until now...

there my problem:
i would like to import an item into my mod.
the current item already exists in BigReactors mod.

i already claimed the dependencies from the main class:
Code:
@Mod(... dependencies="after:BigReactors")
so, i wanted to import the following item:
Code:
public static final Item dustYellorium = GameRegistry.findItem("BigReactors", "dustYellorium");

//...

GameRegistry.addRecipe(
    new ItemStack(dustYellorium,3),
    new Object[]{
        "xxx",
        Character.valueOf('x'),new ItemStack(dustYellorium,3)
    }
);
when i try to "craft" the current item, the client will crash.
that's the error:
Code:
Description: Rendering item
java.lang.NullPointerException: Rendering item
honestly, i dunno how to fix the problem.
how am i supposed to render anything i cannot import, maybe?
kindly, can anyone help me to fix the issue or understand what is going wrong?

thanks ahead time for your dealing and help.

ps. i get item's name from BigReactor's en_US.lang file - it's a silly way to find out the information i needed. - the above method could be applied to ExtraUtilities' mod. it works perfectly to import badrock ingots.

[SOLVED] - the current topic can be closed, kindly. thanks @moderators.

finally i found out why-and-what i have to do in order to import BigReactors' items.
in reality, most of them cannot be imported - ie: dustYellorium. BigReactors itselft is supposed to work like that.

the proper definition for BigReactors' items:
Code:
<BigReactors:BRDebugTool>, BeefTronic™ Diagnostics Tool
<BigReactors:BRDevice>, Cyanite Reprocesssor
<BigReactors:BRIngot>, Yellorium Ingot
<BigReactors:BRMetalBlock>, Yellorium Block
<BigReactors:BRMultiblockCreativePart>, Reactor Creative Coolant Port
<BigReactors:BRMultiblockGlass>, Reactor Glass
<BigReactors:BRReactorPart>, Reactor Casing
<BigReactors:BRReactorRedstonePort>, Reactor Redstone Port
<BigReactors:BRTurbinePart>, Turbine Housing
<BigReactors:BRTurbineRotorPart>, Turbine Rotor Shaft
<BigReactors:YelloriteOre>, Yellorite Ore
<BigReactors:YelloriumFuelRod>, Yellorium Fuel Rod
<BigReactors:bucketCyanite>, Fluid Cyanite Bucket
<BigReactors:bucketYellorium>, Fluid Yellorium Bucket
<BigReactors:tile.fluid.cyanite.still>, Fluid Cyanite
<BigReactors:tile.fluid.yellorium.still>, Fluid Yellorium
project setup:
Code:
- forge-1.7.10-10.13.4.1614-1.7.10-src
- mods/
    BigReactors-0.4.3A.jar
    CodeChickenCore-1.7.10-1.0.7.47-universal.jar
    1.7.10/
        CodeChickenLib-1.7.10-1.1.3.138-dev.jar
        CoFHCore-[1.7.10]3.1.4-329.jar
        CoFHLib-[1.7.10]1.2.1-185.jar
hope this can help someone else as well.
