Metal not moving to bottom of smeltery

Recommended Posts

Dont think im doing anything wrong but ores in the smelter wont move to the bottom when i click them. Ive seen it done in countless videos, and ive tried left and right clicking along with shift, alt and ctrl clicking. So what am i doing wrong? Or is it bugged for other people as well?

you have to put the metal into the smelter controller not into it, try putting a smelter controller into the multi block and try again. let me know what happends

the smelter is assembled correctly and i can make tools with the smelted materials through casting tables and casts, but i have to "drain" the bottom layer off to get to the next layer up.

 

edit: i am clicking on the liquid ores in the smelter controller gui.

you cant "drain" them you have to manually do it by poring it into a cast or basin.

E: alternatively you can destroy the mulitblock and it will delete the "liquid" inside

What do you think im "draining" them in to? Of course its going into casting basins and ingot casts. Do you think im making it up because i didnt use the word "pour" or mention casting basins.

Sorry but the last post was only a nitpick and had nothing to do with the op.

what you are saying is confusing because it really doesnt make sense in that way you are asking for help. 

 

ores in the smelter wont move to the bottom when i click them.

 

if you put the ore into the smelter controller it will turn to liquid and sink to the bottom of the smelter

 

 

edit: i am clicking on the liquid ores in the smelter controller gui.

will do nothing at all

 

i have to "drain" the bottom layer off to get to the next layer up.

yes you have to cast ingots or blocks before you can use the next "layer" of smelted ore

Ok, i see what's going on here. But first i want to apologize to you fps. You must have been real confused when i asked an incoherent question, and when you tried to help i jumped down your throat. so for that im sorry.

 

tldr: it isn't supported in hexxit.

 

I've played tinkers construct in other modpacks and stand alone, and when you click the molten metals in the controler they would switch places with the bottom layer. This would allow you to chose which metal you want to pour into a cast without draining the bottom layer off first.

 

so there it is. Thanks for the help fps, i appreciate it.

Look, everyone calm down, all I know and many others is that we need to know the way to select the molten metals in the smelter controller

we all need this info because many know that smelters give people more materials for every block
