I was hopping you could add the “mode” option to the crafting pipe like it is on the provider pipe / module.
This would allow the use of Equivalent Exchange’s Condensers as automatic crafting tables, without the need for some convoluted setup. As it stands the crafting pipe will pull an item from the target slot, disabling the Condenser. Ignoring the first stack however would allow this to function perfectly.
(As a side note, it may also be useful to someone if this option was also on the Extractor [MK2] module.)
The convoluted setup is not that bad to accomplish. I am using buffers / retrievers, condensers, structural pipes, “iron or gates”, jacketed wire and a few covers to setup feeds leading from one source of EE fuel to all my condensers.
It works as follows : condenser leading onto buffer / retriever which leads onto another condenser. Attached to the condenser is an “iron or gate” via structural pipe. Connect your jacketed wire to the retriever / buffer and cover up the jacketed wire’s connection to the structural pipe before it. This setup is not too bad.
How does it create the items on request? How does clicking on a Request pipe and requesting redstone send the EE fuel to the correct condenser?
My setup is a condenser set to create redstone with a satellite pipe attached to it. Then there is a RP2 transposer set to pull from the condenser and push into a chest. The chest has a crafting pipe set to produce redstone and it is configured to send diamond to the satellite pipe on the condenser. Request redstone and the diamond gets sent to the satellite pipe and put in the condenser. The condenser makes redstone and the transposer pulls it into the chest. There is also a regular provider pipe attached to the chest to provide the excess redstone on future requests. So a diamond only gets sent if there is no redstone in the chest.
If the crafting pipe would ignore first stack, then the entire setup would be reduced to a condenser and a crafting pipe. That would be perfect.
