    D-does this mean you "scan" items in a machine and use liquid UU matter to make it?

    Yeah, there's three separate machines now. A Massfab for creating liquid UUM, a Scanner for scanning items, and a third machine for forming liquid UUM into specific items depending on what items you have stored in the adjacent scanner.

    automated crop farming and better cross-breeding would also be nice.
    it'd also be nice if crops became more mid-game instead of end-game

    Crops with a bit of Weed-Ex is a fair way to get more out of things like wheat and such. I really do wish weeds weren't a concern, though. There's quite a line between realism and fun.

    I tossed a suggestion to rework the crop system up over on the IC2 forums. Such a thing will probably have a low priority, however - they've an e-net to fix and core mechanics to overhaul.

    As slowpoke said, you can feel the greg influence in ic2.

    And speaking about crops, I thought nobody never used them since they are totally useless.

    Crops are incredibly useful in conjunction with other things because of their ability to produce things without needing to replant and bypass soil/"next-to-water" requirements.

    I use them to grow pumpkins for seed oil and for MFR biofuel.

    Same here, with plain melons as well.

    Crops are EPIC early game, its an easy way to grow carrots and potatoes in bulk. Pumpkins and melons are friggin ridiculous with them too. Sugarcane- no problems. And later on the nether-wart works a treat!
    (1.2.5- 1.5ish- unless the recipe in 1.6 changed to iridium instead of sticks or something)

    Indeed, it makes it easy to have a small farm that you can just click spam to gather, and not have to worry about replanting.

    Dont have to spam click- last time I was able to walk sideways with my coffee cup on the mouse

    Or just use it with an mfr harvester. Farms can then be vertically stacked quite densely.

    You rather automatically replant and manual gathering (IC2 crops) or automatically gathering and manual replanting (vanilla crops) and you can't have both. Without taking into account other mods that is.

    I chose number 2

    Erm... early game guys???
    like stone-age early game. ​

    Now now Celestialphoenix, everyone knows that "early game" is defined as about three 36 HP boilers fully heated up! Who starts by punching wood nowadays? That's like, so 2011.

    ... :p

    IC2 crops were my best friend back when Netherwart could only normally be grown in the Nether. :)

    I could see the plants that produce ink sacs being useful as an alternative to a mfr squidfarm. No more squid hunting for thaumcraft research, ars magica 2 spell writing and mystcraft books.

    Oh yeah, I use the crap out of IC2 crops in the early game. Easy access to renewable dyes (I just wish I could get green dye with them too, instead of having to make a side cactus farm) and super easy food. After that, later in the tech tree, a watermelon farm harvested by GT Crop Harvesters will generate stupid amounts of watermelons for running in recyclers.
