Curunir Posted May 17, 2014 Share Posted May 17, 2014 Greetings, Tekkiteers! As I have wasted half an hour on a fruitless search, let me share the final result with you, to save you from wasting your own time as well. The Liquicrafter is a less well-known MFR block that allows autocrafting recipes which require liquids as part of the recipe. The most notable one, for which I installed it myself, is making Enderium Blend from tin dusts, shiny dusts, and a bucket of Resonant Ender. While the TE Cyclic Assembler can craft this as well, there is no way to get empty buckets out of it again, which precludes any meaningful automation. It's not hard to set up a Magma Crucible to smelt Ender Pearls and pipe the Resonant Ender into the Liquicrafter. Neiter is it hard to fill the Liquicrafter's solid item inventory with the necessary dusts. The hard thing is the Redstone signal. You see, the damned thing will only produce on pulses, i.e. when a Redstone signal is first being applied. That means you either install a button and keep mashing it, or use a lever and flip it like a madman. Neither is a particularly good or pleasant solution. So, I looked into Redstone circuit logic to learn how to make a continuous pulse. Which is so hideously complicated that I facepalmed several times during my search. Also because nine out of ten Youtube guides out there are either wrong or not explained properly. Which supports my previous theory that the vast majority of Youtubers are retards. But I found an elegant solution after all. Extra Utilities to the rescue: There is a block called Redstone Clock, which will simply pulse once a second. I placed it in front of the Liquicrafter, put a Redstone Torch on top and now I get one turn of work from the thing each second. That means, the torch is right in front of the machine, the Redstone Clock is one block below. tl;dr If you want to pulse your Liquicrafter to make it run continuously, use an Extra Utilities Redstone Clock, and don't bother making a circuit.
