On another Note: If you use an Extruder and use anything other than Ingots as Material Input (like Plates), you have to move to inputting Ingots only (usually putting a Furnace inbetween makes Ingots out of almost everything). One of the Reasons for the ultra long loading Time were the Extruder Recipes for every single possible Input Item, so I needed to remove those for performance Reasons.
Oh and Tool Crafting will be automatable using the Extruder and the Assembler, because I'm going to add Tool Heads. But that only works on Metal Tools for now.
I can already see the future! Stone and wooden tools will require banging planks/cobble into tool heads in a multiblock made out of stone, wood and baked clay blocks, with a minigame requiring the timely solving of mathematical equations. It would preferably also involve paper, so people can notice its reduced output earlier. The "don't nurf vanilly!" power ragers will be simply overjoyed
I remember being mentioned again and again how the only things you need from the bronze age to go electric is the steam powered extractor and the BBF. Has no one requested a config to re-enable the smelting of rubber so far? Also, the paper nerf. The children will surely want their paper output back. Think of the children!
